http://salon.glenrose.net/img/ronhankinswhiner2.pngAs readers of Somervell County Salon know, I, as an interested citizen, like to either video record meetings or watch/listen to government public meetings. I figure I'm just like any other person that lives here in Glen Rose, I may not be able to make it to a meeting, but I dang well would like to know what happened. In the case of Somervell County Hospital District, the open meetings are video recorded and put on Youtube. (As I recall, it was former board member Paul Harper who pushed to have the meetings video recorded for the benefit of the public) The PROBLEM is that they are not put up on Youtube until, usually, someone complains (and I believe that person has been me) because it's so many days after a meeting. That goes for the most recently SCHD meeting from April 27, 2017, but what's even more ridiculous is that, with Ron Hankins as board president, he hypocritically is not ensuring that video is timely posted, EVEN THOUGH HE'S WHINED REPEATEDLY about it in the past. 

Here is an example of a request I did on Monday, February 27, 2017 to Ray Reynolds, CEO of Glen Rose Medical Center regarding the lack of posted video.

Hi, Ray

I am looking for the video from the Feb 16, 2017 special called meeting, as well as video from the Regular meeting 2/23/17, neither are on the Youtube channel as of yet.

I am requesting that the video be uploaded for viewing.

Thank you

Will follow up on getting them posted.

Ray

But he did not get the video posted. I sent him ANOTHER email on March 8, 2017

The videos for Feb 16, 2017 and 2/23/2017 are still not posted on the web. 

When, actually did the meetings get posted on Youtube? On March 8, AFTER I asked, not once, but TWICE for them to be posted. And that is not the only time I have asked for the videos to be timely posted on Youtube. It's unfortunate I feel that I have to NAG.

Which brings me to my point. Ron Hankins, who was a Somervell County Hospital District board member in 2014 and 2015, and is now the board president, apparently has two different standards about whether he cares if video is timely posted or not. In the past, he has actually whined about the fact that the video was not posted by the very next day or within a reasonable time after a given meeting. Why doesn't he care now? Could it be that he just wanted to whine, without really caring whether the rest of us in Somervell County get to know what goes on in the meeting? I asked a former board member, you might guess who, if there were any records regarding timely posting of videos and got these emails. Judge for yourself.

Here's an email regarding the video from the last meeting, from May 8, 2015

Paul:

I am once again being asked by citizens about the video of last month's meeting.   Can you explain why you don't get the video posted within a day or two after the meetings?  People should not have to continually ask about this.

Ron Hankins

Why, yes, I totally agree.The video from that meeting was posted, according to Youtube, on May 14, 2015. My question is, If Ron Hankins was so SERIOUSLY DISTURBED about the meeting being posted within "a day or two after the meetings" and said "People should not have to continually ask about this", then WHY ISN'T HE NOW MAKING SURE THAT RAY REYNOLDS GETS THAT VIDEO POSTED WITHIN A DAY OR TWO AFTER THE MEETINGS????

Paul:

I have had some citizens asking why there is no video posted of our last meeting.  Would you please see that it is posted as soon as possible?

Ron Hankins

That meeting was on March 26, 2015 and the video was posted on April 10, 2015. Again, does it require somebody to have to remind this board to get the videos posted NOW in a timely manner? Apparently so. 

Email from August 29, 2014. Chip Harrison, then board president of Somervell County Hospital District, says that Ron Hankins was *whining*.

Hi Ron,

Not sure what you are seeing but it has been published as of this morning. I tried doing them all yesterday but my internet went out in the middle so I finished them this morning.

Let me know if you continue to see problems.

Thanks

Paul

Paul:

Part 2 of the video of last Thursday's meeting seems to be missing from You Tube.  Parts 1, 3 & 4 are there, but not 2.  Where is it??

Ron

That brings me to today. There was a meeting TWO NIGHTS AGO, on April 27, 2017 at 7:00 pm. Ron Hankins, again, is the board president, who sure *whined* in the past about not seeing the video posted promptly on behalf of other citizens who, like me, like to watch the video and not 2-3 weeks after a meeting occurs. Of course, I could go to the meetings and bring my own camera to record, as I sometimes do, but that should not be a substitute for what Somervell County Hospital District board does as part of a timely and regularly procedure ANYWAY. Could SCHD have posted the video on Friday? Sure, but they DID NOT. I'd like to know but I also don't like to have to pester Ray Reynolds repeatedly. And it appears to me that Mr Hankins aka "CapnRon" has felt very strongly about quickly getting the video up in the past, WHY NOT NOW??????

This is a screen capture of the Youtube Somervell County Hospital District video as of today, April 29, 2017. See the video from the other night? Nope.

Ron Hankins, quit being a hypocrite and DO YOUR JOB.
