Erratum Blockage-Letter to Editor
In Erratum Blockage-Letter to Editor on kp24 at 301223
As to your (Citrus County Chronicle) editorial of 9/23/12, " Blocking purchase illogical",
although your editorial board has been correct on many issues, I take
exception to this criticism of the Chairman of the Citrus County
Hospital Board, whose abstaining vote was in the best interests of the
indigent and our tax dollars, as there have been many misunderstandings
and countless legal battles between the two hospital boards in the past
- concerning the tax dollars belonging to the Citizens' and that they
be used for the indigent only.
So why not have in writing on major expenditures, after the major
problems exposed at the insistence of meeting the needs of the
indigent. Let us never forget that the only reason that the Citrus
County Hospital Board exists: is to insure that the indigent have
healthcare at this county owned Citrus Memorial Hospital.
Furthermore, the statement in this editorial about the CCHB: "We
recommend that Mr.'Smallridge be replaced" is very incorrect, actually
he deserves a reward for looking out for
Indigent care and our tax dollars!
By the way, I know of several Citizens' without insurance, (although
some have received good care) who have not been given proper care at
Citrus Memorial Hospital, one of whom, is in danger of losing a foot
unless there is intervention for his care.
Sadly, the Chronicle Editorial Board did experience a bout of erratum,
causing a serious case of true blockage of rationality!
