To the Editor:

The nursing home is kicking out people who they say are too sick to be there. I thought that was why you had county tax payers pay for a new nursing home, so sick people could stay there. When we voted to fund a new nursing home I thought that was what we were voting for, but it seems that I was hookwinked. Now we have an “Assisted Living Center” which generally takes care of people who can almost take care of themselves. When someone becomes a problem, because they have more needs, they are kicked out of the place, that we, the hoodwinked taxpayers are still paying for.

I believe that all the people of Wallowa County need to take a second look at funding this facility that is of very little value to most of us.
