    What's mind boggling is you seem to know so much about this but yet you come and whine about it on a message board instead of taking you're supposed vast knowledge of these crimes to the authorities....

    With any luck they will rat out some folks for a bit of consideration from the judge.    They need to get to the bottom of the barrel one way or another.   Too many deaths related to that ring, probably more beyond Clearfield that has been connected back to the ring.

    BillyC got a reaction from pwacm in If you were able to be tested today....   
    OK. Here's how I feel about the testing. This will take a while but thanks for taking the time to read it. My GF was scheduled for outpatient same day surgery this past Friday at UPMC Altoona. She was contacted by them on the Monday prior and told she had to have a test and have the results to them on Friday. Where do I get tested at , she asks. Well short of coming down to Altoona they tell her that somewhere in DuBois must do it. Her responsibility to call and find out where. Well Q Care on Main St does it at 8AM and 5PM daily. She has the test done and requests to have the results back by Thursday. They say to keep calling to check in. Nothing back on Wednesday or Thursday morning yet. Altoona then calls her with her scheduled arrival time for the next day and she tells them she has no results back yet. They then tell her  "that's fine , just let us know when you get here and we'll give you a test here". Unbelievable. But wait it gets better. We had stayed in Altoona Thursday night and she calls Q Care at 9:30 AM on the way to the hospital but no results back yet. We get to the hospital and she tells the temperature checkers she's supposed to have the test. They say to tell them upstairs in the surgical unit check in of which she does and they say to let the nurse know and she says to let the doctor know so then the anesthesiologist comes in so she tells him and he says to let the doctor know and when she finally does the doctor says to not worry about it. So I firmly feel now that the testing is nothing but a scam.
    On a lighter note I asked another doctor there if he had any input on when this situation may get any better and he told me to ask a politician because after all i'm only a doctor.

    He has been doing it for over a year. Loneliness is not excuse to be a pedofile. Find someone your own age. Luckily he can't do this to anyone else. That boy needs to face a consequence too for sending nude photos. At 14 he knew what he was doing.

    I think he did before, but unless I'm mistaken, his immediate family may be all gone. Maybe he just doesn't care any more.  He's lost but it's good that he's been found by the police and won't hurt any other kids.

    BillyC reacted to m michelle in Do you personally know anyone?   
    Just thinking... With as many the cases being reported, wouldn't you think everyone would know someone or have a personal connection to someone who knows someone that had coronavirus?  Everyone has personal connections with people with cancer, people with heart disease, those with diabetes, alzheimers, and those families that have tragedies as suicide.  I have many circles of people I know, professionally and friends in the area and outside of the area, urban and city.  They say there is only so many degrees of separation between you and everyone else.  Yet, with the exception of the one on the front page news (that I do not personally know), I do not know a single person that has been diagnosed, or even heard of people talk about knowing, i.e. my sister's aunt, my friend's uncle, my neighbor's grandfather, etc... Is anyone in this readership able to report they personally have connections with anyone diagnosed?  I just find it strange.  Also strange that the number of people that die from cigarettes, and a number of other things reported elsewhere,  is significantly higher and they haven't shut the country down for any of those. Is there possibility that we may have more severity from emotional breakdowns that will be more tragic than what the coronavirus actually caused?

    BillyC reacted to Petee in Stay at Home order   
    This particular time in America has never been experienced before.  If a family is used to sliding under the wire where life and responsibility is concerned, they certainly won't be concerned now.  I swear that some people feel that they aren't stupid or bad enough to do anything a dumb as contracting a virus.  We're good, we don't get that kind of stuff, and if we do, it's because someone else is at fault.
    Will America come out of this with a better attitude?  It should be a time of growth and development of good skills, not just death and stress.  Make it happen!  Be the change!

    BillyC reacted to Pompeii in One person in Clearfield County has tested positive.   
    DuBOIS - One person in Clearfield County has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual is not in a Penn Highlands Healthcare facility, however, Penn Highlands Healthcare, PHH, will continue to work closely with the Pennsylvania Department of Health to monitor the situation.
    “We encourage everyone to remain vigilant to the practices of good hand hygiene, disinfecting high-touch areas and self-isolation. These precautions can help curb the spread of the virus and keep people healthy,” Dr. Shaun Sheehan, Medical Director of Emergency Medicine for all of PHH and leader of the PHH COVID-19 Task Force, said. 
    Penn Highlands Healthcare is prepared to care for COVID-19 patients and has taken many precautions to limit the exposure of COVID-19 to its patients, visitors and staff. To date, it has restricted visitors in its hospitals and nursing homes. Non-essential elective procedures have been canceled to reduce the number of people coming into the hospital.
    Hospitals and other buildings have one public entrance open at each location, and all visitors who enter have their temperature checked and verbally screened for symptoms of COVID-19. 
    Employees have been self-monitoring for COVID-19 and had opportunities for re-education about protective gear. PHH sends daily updates about COVID-19 from the PHH Task Force, the Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania.
    Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 - cough, fever, sore throat and shortness of breath -  are encouraged to stay home. They should call their primary care provider or if they do not have a PCP, they can call the PHH referral line at 814-375-6644 from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Monday through Saturday and from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Sunday.  From that phone call, the process to determine if a test should be performed begins.

    In my line of business I deal with certain agencies and inspectors at the state level, and befriend some of them over time. I had a conversation with one of them off the record this afternoon. I'm not going to start rumors, make guesses or assumptions, but I'm also going to refrain from further complaining about shutdowns and making jokes about overreacting. Don't rush out and buy all the toilet paper, but avoid groups of people...

    This is an excellent opportunity for the schools to go in and do a super cleaning/disinfecting of all their buildings. Will it happen though??
