According to June 4th edition of the Chiefland Citizen the Tri-County Hospital may be revived by Ameris Health systems. Commissioner Ryan Bell of Chiefland (R-District 4), who is up for re-election this year, seems to have a golden ear on these developments by Mr. Schupp and the unnamed forum of community leaders. Mr. Bell is to be commended for this.
Commissioner Bell should also be commended for not having a Golden Eye for researching Ameris Systems record of financial responsibility and management skills.
For years we've heard about a hospital coming. Money raised. Hopes raised, but over the years (7), nothing!
Now, another raised hope. Ameris has $3.7 million invested.
Big Deal! Less than a small winning lottery ticket.
The City of Chiefland should not contribute one penny toward what will be another unfulfilled promise.
Thank God for the VA in Gainesville. Herbert Graham
Levy County home owners, when Gov. Scott was campaigning, he promised to bring 80,000 new jobs to Florida. What he really meant was he was going to bring 80,000 cows to Florida to finish off the springs and rivers.
