Sun, Apr 17, 2016 - 08:20 AMCO's conflicting testimo
Reported in newspapers. Jurors hear testimony of over 30 witnesses. Jurors call for federal investigation into county jail operations.
Kristy Richards, who testified that she was fired about two months after the Scott incident for having cigarettes in the prison, said she started work at 11:30 Sept. 5 2015 and was almost immediately stopped on her rounds by Scott, who said she was in pain. Richards said she called Lt. Joe Barnes, who told her there was nothing he could do.“He said she had just been to Uniontown Hospital and that she was faking,” Richards said. Richards said she also spoke to him in person during her break around 2 a.m. “If that lieutenant had done his job and come up at 11:30 and checked on that girl and called the medics, she’d still be alive,” Richards said.
Richards said she wrote two statements about what happened that night, one that detailed the entire night and another that only dealt with incidents in the early morning when the medical staff came back on duty. She said the first report was rejected by her supervisor, who told her to write the second one. Richards said she eventually turned the longer report over to the county’s Human Resources office.
When it was suggested by attorney John Ninosky who was representing Primecare, the health provider at the prison, that Richards had an axe to grind, Richards was vehement that she was telling the truth.“You can hook me up to a lie detector. I have nothing to lie about. They took my career away; what more can they take away? I have nothing to hide,” Richards said. “When you listen to someone scream and moan and die, you remember that night.”
The death occurred 2015. The inquest was last week
Warden Miller said at the April 14 2016, inquest, “Until today, I didn’t learn there was a problem with them not calling (911) from the infirmary,” Warden Miller said during Thursday’s testimony. Warden Miller also testified that there is an automatic external defibrillator (AED) in the medical area, though the nurse on duty had testified that it was in the administrative area. “I don’t see a need for my officers to know in-depth an inmate’s medical charts,” Miller said, going on to say he saw nothing to improve.
County solicitor weighs in.“I didn’t hear anything that indicated to me there were any civil rights violations,” said John Cupp, solicitor for Fayette County. “She came to the jail. She gave inconsistent information about her medical problems. ...After the nurse became aware this woman was in distress, they did everything they could to keep this woman alive.”

Sun, Apr 10, 2016 - 08:22 AMherald Sub Double standard
this is not the first time the Herald SUB-standard messed up. It is becoming a habit. Not only do they report wrong days for community parades, leave out names of honor students, attribute quotes to the wrong people but they often have MISSPELLINGS IN HEADLINES
this is the area's newspaper of largest circulation
so what is the problem?
5. spell check not working/
6.copy editor, managing page editor? managing editor, publisher all asleep on the job?
7. how many years of experience do they have doing this very simple task of hitting a spell check key on the computer?
how many people are responsible for such a simple task?
should subscribers expect more from them?
should Fayette Countians expect more from them?
how will this affect Fayette's population and job growth?
do businesses want to come to Fayette County knowing the largest newspaper cannot hit a spell check key?
how many times does Fayette County need to be embarassed?
should heads roll at the herald standard on Monday?
will anyone be held accountable?
Sad state of affairs at the herald SUBstandard

Sat, Feb 27, 2016 - 4:17 PMYou are in no position to
..pass judgment.You believe it makes no difference when you covet and accuse people (whether true or not) when you are doing the same or worse so whatever... Why not add covetousness and bearing false-witness against thy neighbour to your moiuntain of sins including sodomny, adultery, Theft, Blasphemy, ignoring the sabbath, taking His name in vain, Wrath, Sloth and all with Daddy's money You Catholics think just as long as you spill it all out in a confessional everything is absolved. Well it doesn't work that way; Not without a contrite heart. You are fully known by G+d who is omniscient. When the most part of your life's time is consumed in trespasses against the whole of the community. most oftenly against someone who is vulnerable and that if the man is not properly treated he will harm others all are consulting with community behavioral health professionals to see if a former elected official is certifiably insane??? That's my guess. ... someone who does not have any pity or sympathizing heart or compassion may be psychopathic. The "smaller" you are the more control and vengeful manipulation he can commit against the vulnerable members of this community. My father was a professional Psychologist with his own practice for 18 years until his death. He left a mass of Psychiatry/-ology books and personal journals about. Many times pastors comment that psychiatrists send their patients to the ministers and clergy who in turn send the sick back to the PhD. and visa-a-verca. It is my final conclusion that his is a spiritual illness which caused the mental malady. I can explain why these illnesses develope but at the core is almost always an issue of un-resolved guilt over sins they committed against someone but find themselves unable to confess and make ammends with the family/person who was harmed. Insincerly going to confession is a frequent difficulty for the treated as well. Why do you go to confessional when you show no intention of ever repenting and you do not feel ashamed of your sin and do not have a contrite heart. G+d is, yes - a forgiver but he expects you to want to be a better person and to feel convicted and sorrow about your sins. G+d is not fooled by lipservice. You can recite the Act of Contrition and any prayer you also think sounds good but god knows your heart. You prover to us all that you do not have a contrite heart so my question is: why do you bother going to st Theresa's confessional dressed like that and go to the trouble o confessing when you donnot have any intention o turning away from your sins?. He doesn't want that from you. He wants your love and profound gratitude for his grace and salvation. He wants to see how thankful you are that he is a forgiver; Not to be lied to in that booth. You have every intention of sinning against the people here and against the community when you walk out of that confessional so donnot begin to think that you are absolved of what you are not even sorry about. It doesn't work that way

Ambrosini responded to the new boards of commissioners budget. Much as I expected the 3 commissioners raised taxes simply because they had a convenient scapegoat in Ambrosini and Zapotosky. After all those cuts and moving money around even their new budget at best justified a 1/4 to 1/2 mil increase. Even their own budget numbers didn't justify the full mil they held up taxpayers for. These commissioners are just greedy. Clearly evident by their accepting pay increases at the time they undid pay increases previously granted by the past administration. Zimmerlink and Vicites already had a track record of raising taxes unnecessarily. And sometimes tax increase are necessary but these *** clowns have mismanaged the county for decades. Even though they raised taxes again I doubt they will truly fix any of the systemic problems they have conveniently ignored for their entire careers in public service.
