Every single taxpayer in this county should be irate at the lack of respect for our hard earned money being used in a manner unacceptably foolish! These dunderhead politicians are so corrupt and egomaniacal that it’s unreal and insulting. WE all need to be a united voice to those who will uncover this injustice and end this corruption. This needs to stop NOW!!!

Do you see the look on the faces of the 2 trailing guys in the photo above? It’s like they both were saying, “Did she just fart?” And she said yeah, but don’t worry because my shit doesn’t stink…………………………

Did you ever hear “the circle of life” phrase. You are a child first, then an adult and in your final years you are sometimes like a child. I worked @ FR for 39 years. It use to get voted Best in the Valley. Once they got rid of Bill Jubek as the administrator, things started changing. My mother in law and father in law were in there around 2006-2009. They got excellent care. My father in law loved all his care givers. My mother in law had dementia. Now I wouldn’t recommend putting my worst enemy there.

I have been retired for 4 years so can only speak for the time I was there but 95 percent of the people I work with were good and caring people and had compassion. I know I gave my heart and soul to the job and for you to say it stinks I’m very offended.

The care was excellent when it was under the county . As for now under the new owners I do not have first hand knowledge.

Why is the county loaning friendship ridge tax payers dollars. It will be interesting to see how much money is actually missing. Corruption and mismanagement everywhere.

What’s the worry? Beaver County has only done what the rest of our government has done. What’s gone on here just seems like the American way………………..19 trillion dollars in debt?……… sure, why not, let’s give billions of dollars away to Raghead countries that want to kill us…………………….One would think all the politicians rode the short bus to school.
