  1. Why should Region I decide what is best for Paulding County? Do they live here ... and do they really care about what is best? Seems to me that the whole process is miss-guided. I guess any service is better than what we are getting now. So, it looks like the lesser of two evils is what we are going to be forced to swallow. The best thing to do now is hope you dont have to call 911.
  2. Ok ... Ok ... sorry I even brought up the subject. If it pisses you off so much, then why post anything. Just let the thread die. Obviously ... you know it is the most crucial decision that Paulding County is faced with. I have been a PC citizen for several years and have two children in the school system. So yes ... I have a say. You may not like what I have to say but that is the beauty of living in America. We all have the "freedom of speech".
  3. So, I have to say ... I have been really intrigued by this thread. Initially it was thought that this post had an alterior motive ... now it seems to have drawn some very interesting conversation. Because of that, I have been doing alot of "investigating". I am just that way I guess. Now, I am no Inspector Gadget ... but I do know a little about private investigation. I was in that field for many years. So here is how I see it from an outsider looking in: Sam Clark has been a long standing pillar in the Paulding Community. He has gained alot of support through his many business adventures.
  4. Why would'nt Puckett want to keep the employees ... are they that big they can just bring in new people? Seems to me they would want to keep people that were familiar with the area. Smart business to me.
  5. I know $250K sounds like alot of money ... but with a county budget of over $50 million ... that don't seem like a whole lot of money to run an ambulance service. No wonder Clark was having fimamcial trouble.
  6. Ya know I thought that too but apparently thats not the case. I called Region I EMS office and David Foster (Region I Director) said that the zone was in Sam Clarks name personnaly and not in Clark Ambulance Service. So ... he said the zone would have to go out to bid. Metro will not be able to "buy"it. The plot thickens!!!!
  7. Great explanation Pubby .... so what has the county set aside as a "subsidy" for ambulance service? It has to be in the budget.
  8. Amen to that .... isnt that the most important thing? I dont care about all the politics. What is in the best interest of the citizens? That is the $64,000 question. Why have we not heard anything from our county leaders? There is nothing on the county website that addresses this issue. No mention of what the citizens want. Will we be able to vote on what service we want? I have heard great thing about Puckett and great things about Metro. Why not have two providers providing coverage? Can the county do that or do they have to have an exclusive provider. I know ... I know ... alot of quest
  9. So ... if Metro bought Clark Ambulance ... does that mean they automatically get to be the new ambulance provider?
  10. Just got back from the Paulding Meadows Festival ... first time attending. WOW! What an awesome event. Huge turn-out. I loved the food. The Rotary Club had great BBQ ... and the funnel cakes were awesome! Curious though ... I saw Puckett EMS there. Their first aid tent was remarkable. Very professional looking group.
  11. Thanks Pubby ... you seemed well versed in whats going on. That is why I came here. I know this is a "touchy" subject for many people, but a crucial one because we are talking about the lives of Paulding citizens. This is not some dispute over a building contract or road construction. This decision literally could be the difference between your life or death ... not trying to be overdramatic. I just think that it is alarming that there has not been any public ackowledgment that this is going on. There in nothing in the paper, on Channel 23 or mention at the commissioners meetings. You wo
  12. LOL ... goodnight Lucky! Thanks LPPT and FREEBIRD ... I actually saw a Metro Ambulance in Dallas the other day. I guess that explains why.
  13. Well... if they do close then will the county have the responsibility for running the ambulances? I hear that Sam Clark has been a well respected member of the community and I have no reason to believe he is not. I know that in the county where I moved from, they were responsible for running the ambulances. I guess that could be the case here.
