  1. If she is going for chemo at the Paulding office of Northwest Ga Oncology, there are wigs and scarfs to choose from for free. Also have resource books. Loving Arms is great as well.

    New hospital

    I am not posting for or against the old or new hospital, but I told the executives over WellStar basically the same thing. You can build a new hospital but if you do not have a knowledgable staff to care for the ER patients then it does not help the reputation. I had a family member that experienced a life threatening traumatic injury and if I had not been there to "tell the nurse how to take care of him" he might have died. I won't go into details about the experience, but it has gone downhill from what it was a few years ago. Now to defend them, people do "abuse" or use the ER for non-emergent conditions. This causes a back log for those who are there for "real" urgent or emergent conditions. I have seen this type abuse grow and grow over the years and if Obama thinks his health care is suppose to reduce this type of visits to the ER, well he has another thing coming. One of the problems is people aren't enrolling into medical schools like in the past because of this very reason. Where oh where is our world heading. So on a political note, we need to get back to the basics and stop wanting miracles!
  4. Try "Loving Arms Cancer Outreach Program". They are located next to Kennestone but they have a lot of wigs and scarfs, etc and are free.
  5. I guess they are the same folks that would tell us that Paulding County can't have money for certain things since we did not have a birth rate. Any baby born that live in Paulding County was counted in Cobb, Douglas or Carrolltons population growth stats, so we did not get subsidies. Finally, some one got smart and they counted them regarding which county they reside, not the county they were born in. We have alot of realllllllly smart government officials, then and now. NOT
  6. They will not be delivering babies yet. Many years ago, when Paulding stopped delivering babies, they lost their certificate of need. When they tried to get it back they were denied because there were too many other hospitals that deliver babies close enough that the need was denied. Hopefully in the near future, since the county has grown, they will be able to get it back.
  7. Sorry, chose the wrong post to respond to, I was going for the one talking about the accident this past Saturday at McClung and Hiram Sudie. Sorry about that
  8. No one died in this accident. The two on the ground were pulled from the car by a by-stander(FYI, don't ever do this unless the car is on FIRE, could cause worse injuries). I know the condition of one of the girls and she is critical but awake and talking, will be a long recover from her liver, kidney injuries, broken arm and bruised intestines along with rib fractures. Pray for them all. Don't know what happened to the two men in the other car that crossed over and hit these girls.
  9. 1. This is suppose to be a secure store all, how did they get in? Must have been someone who has stuff stored there huh? 2. I live on the road that is next to this storage area, this scares me. 3. Hope they catch them soon!
  10. Thank you Sam for all the years you dedicated your life to serving Paulding County. You have helped others when they had no funds to pay, you transported staff to the hospital during inclement weather, you came to the ER to help when we called, the list goes on. You will never be forgotten for all you sacrificed for this county. Welcome Metro, you have BIG shoes to fill. But, you will get there.
  11. Great video. But we still have to import goods from other countries in order to make some of the items the consumer demands. So we need to continue to trade with other countries. Out sourcing of jobs is not a good thing, but eventually the low salaries the Chinese worker make, will eventually rise and big companies will not want to outsource anymore. There are alot of factors involved. I do try to buy American when I can find something made in America, but that is not easy to do.
  12. I used to be a big advocate of buy American, BUT, I took an economics class recently and learned that is not such a good idea. Example: Let's say China buys lumber from the U.S. We boycott buying anything from China. No money goes to China then, China can not buy lumber from the U.S. In the long run it hurts the U.S. That applies to all countries that buy from us. If we were to stop buying foreign made cars, then they do not have the money to buy goods from us. It hurts our economy when we buy only made in America. I was also surprised to find out that Canada is our #1 import and export country.
  13. My parents live in Hiram and are having the same problem. Except when I call them all I get is static. They can not receive calls but can make calls but at times they can't even make calls. Tech has been out once and will be back Monday.
  14. That land was sold many,many years ago with the intent of putting in an airport. At first it was going to be the Atlanta airpot "extention" but Paulding put one in since no progress was being made. So anyone building in that area could have gone to the courthouse, viewed the open records and then decide if they wanted to live there. It is our own responsibility to research areas we are intending to live.
  15. 1. Have you considered all the donations from citizens, businessess and fundraisers? 2. You can only provide jobs at the airport if you make it "attractive" to potential users, i.e. Propeller. It was one of the deciding factors when "Hollywood" decided to come here, no complaints heard about that. 3.If you are for jobs and manufacturing, why are you against the airport, it will bring in jobs and manufacturing.
