    I was a sophomore in high school when an intoxicated Laurie Ayers ran a stop sign and struck my vehicle. Here is yet another dui, #4…what does it take to stop this woman? You are not only a danger to yourself but to others as well. Your problem has become a public safety issue. Please obtain the help you need and/or stay off the roadways.

      This was a compelling post thank you for sharing. It leaves one feeling very frustrated when our system is setup for profiteering via catch and release.

      ………..and she looks like she is 72 instead of 52. Alcohol is not her friend.

  • Uncle Thomas

    What is the solution? We pay officers, we pay jailers, we pay judges, we pay attorneys, we pay court services, we pay community corrections, we pay intake counselors, we pay…, we pay… As Mr. Doyle stated we have a wonderful system for profiteers! We obviously have addicts in need of help. We play a shell game with addicts lives and wonder why they do not change. We continue with the same plan day in and day out and expect a different result.
    Opinions please…!

      More money for mental health so these individuals will have options for help. The mental health field is so deprived of funding at this time, it is difficult to get help for things like addictions or mental health diagnosis.

      • Uncle Thomas

        I am aware of the issue. Why is it so deprived of funding…it is not profitable. Does our own sacred cow HMC expand in the field of mental health…no way! It is not profitable as is heart, cancer, etc.

        • hmmmmm

          I agree it is not as proffitbale, but it is also the first to blame if any incident happens around the world. Mental Health has always been looked down upon, due to the stigma that comes along with being mentally ill. But as soon as someone goes postal and starts shooting or attempting to hurt others they point it at mental health,becuase the person didnt get help, if there was more funding maybe mental health could provide what is needed, and be able to promote itself as a medical profession.

          • Seriously?

            Actually, mental health can be very profitable if done in the right way. People need to think of the brain as yet another organ NOT a seperate entity. The funding that goes into mental health is dismal versus the rest of the body.

      • Respect

        I used to be involved in the mental health field in western Kansas and I agree that funding is one of the main reasons contributing to the lack of services. The greatest injustice comes when the reputation of mental health providers comes under scrutiny for reasons beyond their control. Many of the workers are overworked and underpaid and are constantly the first to get cut when it comes to funding. Please remember that these good people are in a thankless job and doing it with people berating their efforts without understanding the nature of the cliental they serve. Thanks to all the mental health professionals in all capacities and know that you have at least one that applauds your life’s work.

  • A new point

    Please remember, if the individual doesn’t want to change, all the treatment in the world won’t help. I don’t blame people for not going to HPMH- it’s a joke. What else is available?

    • Uncle Thomas

      You are correct the quality of mental health services is lacking in the area. Once again it is not profitable. When the court sends one to a state hospital in the area it is worse.

    ohhh laurie…. what happened? the AA program and church not working for u, or did u just stop working the program… better talk to ur sponsor, cuz im sure shes got answers for u…

    • Kansan

      AA is not the answer for everyone. Addiction is a real disease. Sufferers of Diabetes are not expected to get into a religious/spiritual based organization to control Diabetes are they? While AA may work for some, others need the help of mental health professionals and trained addiction counselors. Not judgement. It amazes me the judgement people tend to get who have addiction or other mental health problems. To use Diabetes as an example again, if a person with Diabetes is observed eating a great big piece of chocolate cake – you won’t see people yelling at them. I agree with the above comments that funding for mental health has got to considered a priority in our state and nationally.
