Re: “Rich Man's Justice

For all you people out there that say he is innocent stop talking please. He is not. I am one of the three girls. Everything we said is true. I will never forget that night. The story above forgot one part. The reason we never told our parents until a month later is because he threatened us that he would hurt my mom if we did. My parents wanted the best for us after that situation and so that is why they called off us talking in court and the charges and everything. I didn't understand any of it. I was so confused. I am staggered now knowing so much than only being 6. I mean yes, my mother did say that stuff on text, but only to Trey Harwell our lawyer and family advisor. I had to spend 4 years in S.A.C. just to get over this. I still have nightmares but don't tell my parents because they would stress. I am just staggered since I am older and understand what happened other that when I was 6. Trust me when I say this, I would never lie about that. It happened. It is the truth. I am still scared to this day that he will be back and hurt my parents or sisters because technecly I am the one who told one night when my mom was tucking me in for bed. I am crying while typing this from just remembering.

Re: “A Vanderbilt Dumpster diver loses his right to rummage

Poster Seymour needs to check with a better lawyer on whether a Dumpster company owns the property within a dumpster before it leaves the stationery property. They may own it after being picked up, but certainly not before. I'm sure Vandy is embarrassed by this story and all the D Divers that will be showing up at the end of next month to ply their new trade.

Re: “A Vanderbilt Dumpster diver loses his right to rummage

I just need brass balls to DD. That's all I'm asking. Fuck all the political shit. DD is better than looting! Once items are discarded, that means the owner no longer uses it and no longer wants it, therefore it's free for the taking. The homeless DD on a daily basis, so what's the fuckin deal?! Now selling your DD finds is your business, now you're dealing with the resale of purchased products, which is illegal. But hey, as long as you don't advertise it and aren't caught, who cares, right? I mean, how many store goods are purchased on a daily basis and resold at a local high school or at some kids lemonade stand? It's all politics. The thing is ppl, if DD becomes a big phenomenon, then who will keep the stores in business so that DD ultimately will be possible?

Re: “A Vanderbilt Dumpster diver loses his right to rummage

"But Vanderbilt officials say their concern isn't theft—it's lawsuits."

BS. People have been dumpster diving since dumpsters were invented. No one has ever been sued by an injured dumpster diver. The only reason they ban it is because they're afraid someone might get something they aren't getting.

Re: “An all-male nude strip club fills a void in adult entertainment for both sexes—so why isn't the gay community talking?

It's also time to allow gay or straight naked men or women convene in designated areas. I'm straight but I think it's kind of hot to let men or/ and women mix. Maybe not walking around town but in designated spots. You don't have to be there if you don't like it.

Re: “An all-male nude strip club fills a void in adult entertainment for both sexes—so why isn't the gay community talking?

Most of used a all messed up about the exposure of skin in public. In some parts of the world it is illegal to expose the two appendages that women use to stand errect (their legs). Worse than that, in most parts of the world it is wrong and illegal for mothers to let people see them feed their infant children naturally, I don't care where you are. What is perverse is the keeping a young child hungry until they are out of your sight. Also, what is the obsession with nude beaches. Oh my God. Oh No! Body organs! Especially the ones used to give birth! Should using them be illegal too?

Re: “A Vanderbilt Dumpster diver loses his right to rummage

"It's not like you're talking about homeless or lower class people doing this," LaSalle says. "It's young married couples with nice cars and fairly nice clothes, fitting whatever they can in the back of their trucks and cars."

So it's suddenly okay to dumpster dive when the middle and upper class take an interest in it? What an asshole.

Re: “A Vanderbilt Dumpster diver loses his right to rummage

and we have Deb over here acting like trash collection is a lucrative enterprise // this dogmatic cycle of consuming by buying tvs,refrigerators,etcetera and then wasting is of course being taken advantage of by a tiny percentile of middle // lower class divers that are out there trying to put bread on the table or gin in their bellies or cheap Van Gogh on the wall. fuck the police for staying the divers hands (protecting the quasi "dumpster" assets), and fuck the garbage workers for complaining that their could some how be a shortage of garbage, if anything our landfills need to stop,... well being filled so much. I'm laughing at you Deb // Why would divers incessantly want Goodwill or Salvation Army snagging the goods //by diving, we're eliminating the middle man and the chance for the "non profits" to reap a dollar, all for the benefit of WE the people. Goodwill is indeed an asset to the lower class, I don't deny this. I get the trespassing, as lame as it is. just bring a dumpster spotter, so now one gets hurt or thrown away. or put a enter at your own risk sign on the damn dumpster. = )

Re: “Nolensville Plays Hardball With Family Over Ballpark Right-of-Way

I feel this us a tragedy to the family and community of Nolensville. Taken a small piece of land on someone's property isn't going to help with access to the ballpark. This was stupid, wrong, and spitefull to a dead man who left a house and property for family to enjoy. I bet the mayor is happy its not her land. If its not your property don't attack the Jobe family, question the criminal mayor.

Re: “Even after a sex-abuse scandal, NHC Bristol nursing home employees still don't know how to handle abuse allegations

Amazing! Brenda Bagley rears her head again!

When my wife was being abused at Northern Virginia's Inova Fairfax hospital, we begged Medicare for help to get her removed from Inova and transferred elsewhere because she was being abused and we feared she would be killed. Medicare sent an inspection team, via its contractor the VA Bd of Health, to the hospital. My wife, while tied up to her bed and in the 'custody' of an Inova sitter, received a black eye at Inova the day the inspectors left.

We finally were able to get a copy of the inspection report from Brenda Bagley approximately 60 days later and after my wife, in fact, did die. The report showed that two of our Immediate Jeopardy complaints were substantiated and the balance of nine or so were not. The report found that my wife had been starved - no caloric intake whether by mouth, by IV or by feeding tube - for a week with the nurses, according to medical records obtained later, dutifully recording, every two hours, that she was receiving no nutrition. My wife lost over 30 pounds, 1/3 of her body weight during that time. This was done against her will or the family's knowledge.

(By the way, when we filed formal complaints to the VA Bd of Nursing specifically against 15-20 of the nurse's licenses for failure to act on their lawful duty as a Mandatory Reporter, the board though they found that only one even said anything to her supervisor, exonerated all - guess it doesn't matter if VA licensed healthcare provider know their duty under the mandatory reporting regs or not when there is no enforcement but I digress)

The State inspectors also found that my wife was illegally restrained for 3 weeks and that wound care/infectious disease was deficient. Nonetntheless, Bagley passed and my wife remained a hostage at Inova while they refused to transfer her. Some months later, via a Freedom of Information request, we found that the report we had received had been altered and that actually the report found 9 of our Immediate Jeopardy complaints substantiated and that the original report had also been altered to delete whole paragraphs of findings. Bagley's departmental response was to blame "typos".

My wife also received a sacral pressure sore while at Inova (she was paralyzed from the chest down and unable to move herself even when she wasn't tied up) It progressed to the size of a dinner plate and was staged at a Stage IV. The nursing notes state that you could see her spine. Wound care at Inova, per the wound care nurse McCray, only works 3 days per week and even then my wife was not seen that often. Doctor's orders for wound care were ignored.

I won't go into all the other complaints that were substantiated other than to say that Inova tracked a lung tumor and its growth and its spread from their very first radiology on June 27, 2011 to her discharge to a FL facility near her home in FL on Sept 27, 2011. The records we've gotten show more than 2 dozen xrays with radiology notations recommending followup testing. Her medical record is littered with notations of suspected cancer, need for biopsies, PET scans, thoracentisis etc., yet nothing was done. My wife was not informed nor was the family. Incredibly, Inova's discharge documents furnished to the receiving FL facility never mentioned their cancer suspicions, their notations of follow up testing suggestions nor the gaping pressure ulcer. The nurse on the plane transporting her to FL noticed it and contacted (in tears) the receiving facility that they needed a special bed.

The discharge summary did note however that my wife had had a coronary bypass which she hadn't as her family and the lack of a chest scar could attest. Nonetheless this notation created a great deal of confusion etc for about a week at the receiving facility while we convinced them that Inova was just plain wrong. Her home hospital in FL did a thoracentisis the day after her admission and the day after that informed my wife and myself that she had extensive stage small cell cancer. Despite starting chemo that same day, my wife passed away less than 6 weeks later.

Her treatment and the subsequent abuse of the regulatory system was investigate by the Associated Press. A part of her story (space limitations) can be read here…{%22471409779547831%22%3A382800971790047}&action_type_map={%22471409779547831%22%3A%22og.recommends%22}&action_ref_map=[]
and other media are picking up on it and hopefully will expand the story.

Re: “Nashville Symphony Orchestra sparkles in Carnegie Hall premieres of Riley, Ives pieces

John, Thanks for your insight. I listened to last night's concert via computer, and I couldn't believe my ears. The performances all were so much better than what I heard at the Schermerhorn, even via lap top speakers. I thought it was just me, but it seems that it was not. The NSO and Tracy Silverman were simply magnificent. What a joy to hear them. I just wish I could have been in the audience at Carnegie.

Re: “A Vanderbilt Dumpster diver loses his right to rummage

The trash is the property of the company that owns the dumpsters. I work for a dumpster company and we recycle. We depend on the income from what is in the dumpster. Most people don't realize they are stealing when they are taking things out of the dumpsters. Please remember, the dumpster companies are in business to make a profit as well and when you go in and remove this stuff it is the same as if you were in their facility hauling off whatever you felt like taking. Yes, even the contents of the dumpsters does belong to someone.
