Observations on the news

June 8, 2014
Parkersburg News and Sentinel

I would like to make the following comments on the local, national and international observations. First, I find it appalling that the St. Joseph's Hospital is closing. Less than a dozen years ago it was rated in the top 100 cardiac hospitals in the country. Losing medical choices is never a good thing, and the loss of 60 jobs is a catastrophe. Our local elected officials just shrug their collective shoulders and try to tell us that this is a good thing. Centralized medical care is never a good thing. More people on public assistance is not a good thing.
