Pain is the Priority
Walter Robbins Sr.
8400 W. County Road 400-S
     This concerns the emergency room at Ball Memorial Hospital.  Recently, I had an acute gall bladder attack and couldn't walk.  They told me I had to fill out all the paper work.  I asked whether I could get I could get help quick.  They insisted I fill out the paper work first.  I even asked whether my wife, who had brought me, could fill out the papers, but they said no, I ad to d that.
     It took more than 20 minutes to get that done.  I was in a lot of pain.  I found out later that I had a stone lodged in my pancreas and was full of infection.
     I think that when a person goes to the ER with acute pain they should be able to get some help immediately and worry about the paper work later.
     Or why can't a relative or friend who came with the person fill out the paper work?

Keep Your Trash
Norma and Walter Robbins
     We just came in from picking up the trash a person threw in our front yard.  We don't come to his home and get rid o our trash.  We take care of it in a way it is supposed to be taken care of.
     There was everything from the newspaper with his name and address on it, to children's school papers, used toilet tissue and tin cans.  We don't appreciate such actions.
     Wouldn't it be much easier to dispose of it properly, than run all over the county to a well-kept home and scatter it all over?
     We care for our home and property even if others don't care about theirs.
