This place is going down hill fast. They keep raising the membership fees , but they can't keep up with the repairs. The swimming pool has alot of problems and the men's steam-room is broke down alot and they never seem to fix it for long term.  Alot of members have quit because of this and the way they are treated by the Director of the Y. The Director is wothless and he doesn't treat all of his members the same.

The ex-sheriff was kicked out of the Y because he attacked another member in the locker room.

Also , who is the Mexican trainer out there? He sure looks like the ex-cop that worked at the high school and was taking kids out to lunch on school time. The school has a closed lunch rule and he was taking them out. Parents were calling the school and asking why the kids were out to lunch with him. The police department demoted him and put him back on street patrol.

Give me a break.  Many of the people that go there often complain and gossip about this or that.  It's like guys in a coffee shop, it keeps them entertained.  Then they get so tired of the problems they believe are going on, so they go somewhere else to workout for a while.  Then they come back to the Y and whine about the other place too.
:rofl:

irisheyes.  

 Have you been to the Y latley ?  The Y lost alot of there older members due to the problems with the swimming pool. Cold water due to heater problems all the time will lose members fast.  The building was new in 1977. It has never had the money for upkeep. In the last few year's it has went down hill fast. Raising the rates and not fixing the problems are a good way to lose members.  It's fillthy and dirty. I was in the steam-room and over heard the boys head high school hockey coach say there was an old band-aid on the floor for about a week. The men's shower-room has hair on the drain covers for about three days.    :p   The Director don't care or follow up on his crew. He only cares about his little group of friends.        :deadhorse:

So bend over and grab the hair out of the drain cover and throw it away. If it's in the shower it must be clean. Problem solved. Same with the band-aid.

It's not that I don't believe in helping the poor or less fortunate, where I disagree with you is how much we help before it becomes a permanent crutch in ones life.
It is not the fault of the person making $2,500,000 or $250,000 for the person making $25,000.

This forum has been around for years and never has anyone had something negative to say about the YMCA. Then yesterday they were forced to terminate a person's membership, and all of the sudden the YMCA is like Hell on Earth. Why wasn't the YMCA such a horrible place before the membership was terminated?

He's lucky it was just his membership that he lost. There are a lot of guys out there that would have put the boots to him for talking like that.

LIBERAL.

   When was the last time you were a member out there? I don't remember seeing you out there in the last few years.

     Don't you remember what the old saying was when we were kids ?

           " STICKS AND STONES WILL BREAK MY BONES , BUT " WORDS " WILL NEVER HURT ME."      :rofl:

      I don't know what side of the railroad tracks you grew up on , but you are very weak if you don't just give it right back to the person verbally and move on.     :notworthy:

     PS.     You can't control others , freedom of speech. Also , there was 3 (witness ) and none of them heard what the ex-sheriff claims the victim said.
 The victims membership was canceled not due to the arguement with the ex-sheriff , It was due to the revenge because the ex-sheriff is one of the buddies of the Y director. The board kicked the ex-sheriff out as soon as the police report was filed. And this put the director on a " WITCH HUNT " to get the victim out about  5 weeks later.  The y is not the only place in town to work-out.

 PSS.    By the way, they dropped assult charges on the ex-sheriff because it was not enough to charge him with 5th dagree assult. He must still have a few friends up there at the courthouse. I bet he was filling his underware full of BS while he was waiting for the verdict.     :rofl:

What happened? Why did the ex-sheriff and another guy get into it?

It can be frustrating when crap don't work. Eliminate the pool, build both a mens and womens 1. Steam Bath 2. Hot tub 3. sauna. This kills 75% of the operating budget and makes the Y a better place. I like the way the free weight room has its own space as well as the cardio that has its own space.

If I'm not mistaken , that picture sure looks alot like the ex-sheriff's wife.  His wife is a very nice person and she is very polite.     :cheer:
