So the grievance is all wrong, those are not my words. the program if opened
1 per doc kemple i need a medical detox 4 or higher and inpatient pain rehab or best might end up back on a pump, reeading mjh, not sure they do detox and what levels?
there is many pain clinics that are hooked to hospital, for ppl like me with medical conditions.
the couple i gave was my research.
i also want to complain about the company you hired to do case management, they did nothing and left this in a mess.
that said i need case management or help with this. are you saying in one week if the codes are not right i will be in the first week of a 5-8 week in patient stay, as the detox is part one learning to try to live with out pain meds are reducing them takes learning, so i might as well shoot myself now, it took a year of begging to get this and now it being forced down my throat, i have talked to no one about any of these places!! Sheryl and that company was to help me decide and make a wise choice but what happened? so ur saying the hell with Paul after one week, it gives the hospital no faith in blue shield and they probably will not give me the care i need seeing BS want to still play games.
Another part is why no case manager/ i don’t know how when I’m out of it both detoxing and with out pain meds, you can get me out and who will fight for me, you tell ppl don’t should NOT! make decision when on opiates, well over 20 yrs so your asking me to make a life decision even though it bad a dangerous//?? why is this all messed up you ask us to make the bad decision even though you know your to help??
if this is what there is, your blue shield doctors don’t talk, how do you sign them up, this is real said, messing with ppl life’s here, no case, you figure it out goeltz, i have been but now its all wrong, well the best is after a week when they boot me, i;ll go er to er. so what about the case manager telling me to go to drug and booze detox, for 2 months she had me calling those places and listing to there lies you’ll be fine with the serenity bed etc, and Sheryl just said yes to everything, like she had to help another person with one place, does it not take 3-5 place to make an informed decision?? i wanted kemples medical necessity letter and records sent to 5 to make the right choice for me and bs so you get value. you should be a part that what Sheryl was do do not just chicken out.
miamijewishhealth.org/healthcare-services-programs/rosomoff-center/ maybe not best fit, but maybe lowball for you and no one has even compared them, does BS not want whats best??
so it appears all the help for a week in a long program, is just insane? is the bottom line the only thing BS of ca cares about.
DO I JUST NEED DETOX?
It’s important to know that detox alone will not solve a drug use problem. Some individuals find that once they have successfully completed detox, they still need to enroll in a program to help them rebuild their life after prescription pain killers. Freedom Model Retreats offers a Cognitive Behavioral Learning program that uses self assessment and self change to teach guest to reevaluate their choices and decisions and to make choices that are more productive. Guests learn the importance of forming habits and behaviors that are positive and more purposeful and they realize that they have the power to take back control of their life and to have a life that is permanently free from substance use. see most detox is for abuser, they get to learn to cope and so do i it takes tiome 5-8 weeks to tryiong out different meds, drips, etc, we dont get this right i will be back, i will take this to the highest court. the boozes and dopers dont have any issues but paul goeltz who omnly takes what is giving noting lost stolen etc, i been told your not hooked so no detox and you can go to any detox and blue shiled will get with the place to decide?? ok what is the plan after detox? is there detox what level, can i pay for higher like 5/
anyway please dont leave me after one week if you want me to go to miami jewish is a program, they are layughing at BS all ready, your showing your card, they know you dont want to pay. i can say if i dont get into a good program
this just seems like here toss paul a bone and we dont even know if this is right place
@blueshieldca is paying the ceo over 42 million, meanwhile my pain doctor is trying to get spinal rehab 5-8 weeks inpatient, yes it will cost, but no BS wants to pay there #nonprofits brass billions, and us the workers we get #Death sort of like living in #gaza @scvwd
The Santa Clara Valley Water District’s board of directors is expected to meet in closed session Thursday and fire CEO Beau Goldie.
An agenda for a closed session meeting says the head of the water district, which is responsible for whole-selling water and providing flood control for 1.9 million people, will be the subject of “separation/discipline/dismissal/release.”
Another item on the agenda says an appointment will be made for an acting CEO. Possible successors to Goldie are not known at this time.
Goldie’s job status has been up in the air for the better part of a year. He came under fire last spring after concerns were raised aboutcontracts he signed with RMC Water and Environment, which is owned in part by the husband of one of Goldie’s top deputies. Goldie did not disclose any potential conflicts of interest.
Since that time, internal documents leaked and inadvertently releasedto the press suggest Goldie violated several district rules on the awarding of public contracts. The district has refused interview requests with Goldie for the last few months.
Goldie became CEO of the district in 2009. He worked his way up the ranks after joining the agency in 1984.
This story will be updated.

Thank god! now if they could get rid of half the managers, the union, few others that sucks up
to upper management. of course there is some board that needs to go also, slowly they
will, notice the turnover. Its a shame another av tech is quitting, the district, let’s
see 3 fired IT managers, COUPLE TEMPS,psychopaths running the the district and IT DEPT. ITS
NO WONDER PEOPLE HAVE BAD WORDS AND MORE TRUTH COMES OUT ABOUT WASTED TAX DOLLARS,
NEPOTISM, DISCRIMINATION, GROSS VIOLATIONS OF HUMAN RIGHTS, AND WITH THIS NEW RFP THEY
ARE CLEARLY TIRED OF THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WASTE IN THE BOARD ROOM AND WANT TO HIRE TEMP
WORKERS, WHO PRETTY MUCH HAVE DO RIGHTS!, SO SURE GEORGE K IS READY TO TAKE HELM OF THESE
WORKERS AND I PRAY THEY KEEP THERE OWN AV TECH ALTHOUGH WITH DUTIES OF APPRENTICE.
iT’S A SHAME WE REBUILT GARBAGE, TO A GOOD SYSTEM, AND THEY DELIBERATELY TRY TO BREAK IT,
SO THEY CAN WASTE ANOTHER 3 MILLION, DO NOT BELIEVE THEY CAN UPGRADE TO HD, CHANGE,
REMOVE, REMODEL AND MORE BELLS WHISTLES FOR UNDER A MILLION, LET’S NOT FORGET COST ALREADY AND DISTRICT
COST AND PROJECT WILL SOAR, AS THEY HAVE NO CONCEPT OF DOING AV, TELL STAFF HOW TO USE
EQUIPMENT, HAVE OVER 150K OF TOP NOTCH PRO AUDIO AND VIDEO GEAR THAT WILL GO TO GEORGE’S
CHURCH.. FYI ALL GO EQUIPMENT GOES TO EMPLOYEE’S CHURCHES, SCHOOLS FRIENDS ETC, DO AN
AUDIT, DO AN AUDIT OF AV GEAR AND WHERE IT IS.
WELL it good they ax golden goldie boT ax the ones the screwed me, and threw my personal
item’S away. (it’s ok karma comes quick). few reminders from fired temp and good man.
How Do You Sleep At Night?
I contracted at the district. The general lack of ethics was joked about constantly.
The three midgets that run the IT department in descending order:
a-The idiot who came highly recommended by a senior staff member (Deputy)
b-The Spineless One (Unit Manager)
c-The Sociopath (Help Desk Supervisor)
These three abusive A**HOLES should be investigated!!!!
They are just as guilty as ANYONE at the district. I’m sure everyone is more concerned
with the CEO and the larger, more exposed issues at hand. But these “men”, probably handle
quite a bit of the taxpayer dollars, and they, in turn, should be looked at as a
department. They should be investigated for prejudice, impartial treatment of employees,
nepotism, racism, falsifying documents, destroying evidence in the form of e-mails and
documents, and in general: MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE TO PUT IN A LEGITIMATE 8 HOURS
AND GET PAID FOR A HARD DAY WORKED!
Guys like this are on easy street at the SCVWD and it’s just one cover-up after another.
They know where the bodies are buried. Maybe they get a cut from the Board Room
upgrades??? They are like corporate mobsters. But that would be giving them too much
credit. They are like COCKROACHES, and dear Mr. District Attorney please be ready when you
turn on the lights……
don’t forget to read what we have been complaining about for years, and i will not stop
till i get my 1300$ and the above mentioned mangers outed.
https://pgoeltz.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/diversityaudit2012.pdf expailns it all.
You would think a tax sucking agency could do better, but the management and upper staff
or leadership is pretty much corrupt. contact me for more info facts, names, more rmc
like waste in the board room and IT dept and other depts i have seen. It’s your water
are tax for them to waste on junk take the new unused laboratory 80% not used, george put
av gear in but there is no support nor use for this gear? why ask a manager that has no
Koehn- you’re nothing but a lackey. A poor man’s journalist. No wonder know one will hire you.
I no what you did there.
Biggest idiotic writing style pet peeves. Misusing Know, No; They, They’re, Their, there. Too and to I get mixed signals from people on proper use, but I choose to believe what my favorite English teacher taught me. It’s either an adjective (too, too many, expressing excess) or as a replacement for the word “Also”.
Sorry RMC.. or maybe it’s not me but are savour from metro??..Well you will find me a most pleasant person, don’t have a degree in writing, but i think the point is clear. telling about the mayhem as others have at scvwd. bugs my mom also and she is a teacher, main point your tax dollars or prop tax is being misused . call/email me anytime. bidders, george, happy to engage.
I find your lack of pronouns disturbing….
Poor Robert got his little pet peeve offended, thought only Grandmas have pet peeves!! Maybe you should consult your pet rock that you got offended by a two letter word, that more likely was done purposely. Since you cannot comprehend the bigger story here, not surprised you commented on that!!
Wow that’s actually some nice writing there bro. No, I get the bigger picture of this story. Goldie used his influence to get his wife contracts, irresponsible spending in other departments under his command.
Here I’ll say something.
RMC Water and Beau have shamed my initials of “RMC” and are no longer allowed to use it. Furthermore, Beau, you have brought shame to the “Distinguished Mustache Gentlemens Club.” Please see your way out the door and turn in your badge to security on the way out.
Why is talking about Koehn’s career a thing? I remember Daily Fetch used to do this as well (talking about how Koehn was trying to get a job with NBC).
What’s the backstory here? Cousin Cortese do you know?
Superficially it seems like Koehn can only do this work here (long form investigative reports on important local political issues). You know the dude writes about food as well right haters?
@rmc well i love you either way! not the enemy, the enemy is you water district. i also find my writing disturbing, however it lets the readers know what’s going on.
What these comments are missing is the obligatory Darcie Green reference! Let’s remember that Barbara Keegan, chair of the Board of Directors of SCVWD, very recently resigned from the board of DAWN, of which Darcie Green was president. Chair Keegan’s resume says she’s a licensed civil engineer with two degrees from San José State. I don’t live in her district or know anything else about her, but to me that makes her way more qualified to be on either a board of education or a water board than Darcie Green.
Here’s a little musical accompaniment for the impending climax of the stories of Beau & Darcie:
Let’s give it up for both of them plus all the gals at DAWN plus all the civil engineers at RMC as they stride off into the sunset!
As for Josh Koehn, at least a million people in Santa Clara County have no idea what he has done for them by terminating the careers of these two “public servants”. If only little Santa Cruz County could rate a serious, objective muckraker of his caliber. The paper would be twice as thick.
So looking at some of the links above and SCVWD website. A couple of years ago employees spoke up in item 2.1
And now a RFP is online to operate the AV Boardroom. Did these employees leave or were terminated?
Something fishy going on with this as well it seems!
The manager and IT unit manager decided to stop upgrades, and ongoing work, and to allow things to break, software get old etc, even take out the VC equipment and more to try and justify a new boardroom follow all the links Beau, ravi, CAO , fung and george lied about what is in the boardroom and what the system can do, its all on tape as they got up and lied before the board. We have been complaining for 5 years about management fraud, this is another RMC, there is 1000s worth of unused equipment, and missing equipment, yes i left and the other av person now they want to take away his job for temp workers, if you read the statement of a fired temp, you don’t want to be a temp there. again want more info ask i have dates, names, places etc. and there is a purchase trail showing over 3 million spent on boardroom and upgrades, and if you read rfp they claim they will upgrade in 2yrs, if they would have continued maintenance, and not forced the SR IT tech out the system would be buzzin. you would leave also if your manager told the unit you are a drug store and walks employees around the lake and tell them made up stories about co workers, I cannot say why they have not got rid of the other tech, but clearly he has spoken up regarding IT management lies, about the boardroom as i have. this rfp is proof they want people they can fire at a whim.
call email anytime info above.
Robert you still can’t comprehend ! Go talk to your pet rock!! Beau did not give contracts to his WIFE!
Stop while your behind BRO! Lol
How many user names do you have? Wife? wife of RMC head that worked for him? Tish, small details. Overall he was a bad man, who did bad things, and he’s getting fired. Is there really more to understand than that?
Ebola: Sandy Hooked Again?
Below you will find an article seemingly so wild that you may question the sanity of the writer,Amaterasu Solar. She’s really sane, more than most of us. But she has done her research with open eyes, not trusting anyone else. Only her eyes, ears and experience. There is so much info out there, surrounding theEbolahype with the biggest of question marks. You should read the article below for what it is, one possible answer of several. But whatever you do, don’t fall for the fear virus they obviously want to contaminate us with. This virus is far more dangerous and contagious than Ebola ever has been! (Editor State of Globe)
Today We are told of a horrible new disease spreading across the globe: Ebola!!! But when examining the evidence, there really isn’t any. Take the footage They show Us…
A man, rolling about in front of a makeshift “clinic” (We know it’s a clinic because there is a banner tacked sloppily to the wall saying it is) “obviously” sick and unable to do anything but lie there moaning. Yet later in the footage He is sitting up, just inside the camera view, and looking well and aware. And then a camera follows the “father” who has been spouting about being turned down at all the clinics and otherwise bemoaning the “ebola plight.” He carries a wad of cash, as if He has just been paid for a performance.
A naked boy, quite healthy-looking, walks through a gate to a sheet laid out on the ground and lies down. He is reported as one of the “dead…”
A plane opens its door and an isolation bed is handed out to two waiting men in the head-to-toe protection by People, not by People in any protective gear, but by men in military uniform. The two “protected” men pull the isolation chamber onto the elevating platform They are on, and it drops down (why only two? Protocol is for four People on such medical transfers). At the bottom are other waiting men, and We see anambulancearrive. One of the men salutes the ambulance. Huh? When do ambulance drivers merit a salute? Two men remove the chamber from the lift and roll it to the ambulance (again, two?), pushing it in. It is hard to make a case that there is anyOne actually in that chamber. And then, a whole line of vehicles leaves with the ambulance like a presidential parade…
Nowhere do We see rows and rows of beds, filled with obviously sick patients. Nowhere do We see efforts by the People around these “victims” trying to cover Their airways and avoid contact with these “sick” People. Except for the “workers” the “sick” are being taken to – They are all covered head to foot.
Initially, the word went out that “ebola” requires direct contact with bodily fluids to spread. And that the fluids also must contact mucus membranes or open wounds. People who have studied the virus for 20 years have said this. But then…conveniently…”ebola” mutates! It’s “airborne!!!” OMG!
No effort is made to contain this “disease,” as People are brought to the US and other countries – as if there really is no threat, but scapegoats are needed to create the idea that “ebola” has come to a hospital near You. We are told that some patients died, and others lived… We are told that case after case is springing up around the hospitals these People went to. But there is no evidence except that We are told a test (that really is useless – read Jon Rappaport’s blog to see why) “proved” it was “ebola.” A nurse, who reminds Me of a crisis actor, is interviewed about failures in protocol…
There are other pieces that point to a psyop. Like the choice to put a lobbyist in as the “ebola czar” (WTF!?! No doubt HE can sell this “outbreak”) and a sudden increase in all the usual outlets of articles extolling the “virtues” of vaccines – which, if researched, prove to be damaging (toxic ingredients injected into the bloodstream just can’t be good!) and often cause the disease they are supposed to protect against.
And then there are the reports out of Africa… A claim of a man paid to put formaldehyde in awater supplyexplaining that drinking the tainted water will produce “ebola-like” symptoms and death. The locals in the outbreak areas are connecting the disease to vaccinations from theRed Cross. Others are saying there is no “ebola outbreak” but that the idea is to get boots on the ground to secure oil and put down strikes at diamond mines – which makes much more sense that fighting “ebola” with soldiers and guns…
And all these companies creating “ebola” vaccines. The money They stand to make on this if We accept such nasty concoctions is staggering. And all They have to do is keep up the pretense of the evil virus infecting People long enough to get a few vaccinated, who will then actually get the virus from the jab. It will be claimed that They were already infected and the vaccine came too late – so better get Yours NOW!!! Before it’s too late for YOU!
The fact thatFEMAcoffins were stacked around the US years ago also suggests that They had this all planned. “Oh, look! We have all these People dying! How CONVENIENT that We have coffins to deal withThem!”
A “state of emergency” was declared in the state that brought Us Sandy Hook… With ZERO cases of “ebola” reported. Does this not strike You as odd? My assessment? This fear porn the media is spouting (the same media that assured Us of the veracity ofSandy Hook– which research shows was anything but a real event, manufactured to justify removing Our right to defend ourselves) is an effort to get Us to voluntarily roll up Our sleeves and take the (deadly) jab. Failing that, it will be used to justify forcing Us to do so.
And it gives the perfect excuse to then suspend what’s left of the tatters of freedom, perObama’s (the puppet) convenient executive orders that will install Him as dictator in the event of any “emergency,” manufactured or not.
The fact that Obama is CEO of the corporation of THEUNITED STATES, created in 1871, when the first “executive order” was made (there is no provision for such a destruction of the balance of power the founding Individuals worked so hard to put in place in the original US Constitution) is irrelevant, I’m sure… Heh.
And meanwhile, some areas where this “uber-dangerous” virus was reported are saying that it is no longer there (corporate bio-weapon labs nearby not withstanding).
We are being Sandy Hooked all over again. And this time it is not for Our guns…it’s for Our lives.
Well Tuesday they will announce wanting to spend over 1.5 million in the board room, when in fact its not needed.
They would have more money for water, rebates, classes etc. But disregarding facts, previous upgrades, documentation, the SCVWD is lying there way to build and waste yet another million plus dollars, (1st boardroom was 3 million, upgrades, just AV- during 2001-2012 equaled or passed 100K) on said boardroom. Even though there is nothing wrong with the system now. The only thing wrong is the District is not being truthful about what really is going on in the boardroom, The system is upgradeable, software programming is current and can be done, as a matter of fact there is an outstanding PO to Anderson Integration(10K) for work stopped by SCVWD. there is also over 40k worth of improvements just sitting. Read what they want to do then watch and read these prior statements to the board, CAO’s, staff, and see the real truth. Pretty much 90% of what is claimed is just plan not true. ,http://cf.valleywater.org/About_Us/Board_of_directors/Board_meetings/_2014_Published_Meetings/MG55522/AS55533/AI55560/DO55650/DO_55650.pdf

SUBJECT: Resolution Providing for the Notice of Time and Place of the Public Hearing on the Engineer’s Report for the Boardroom Audiovisual Modernization Project, Project No.60101011 (San Jose)
RECOMMENDATION:Adopt the Resolution (Attachment 3) Providing for the Notice of Time and Place of the Public Hearing on the Engineer’s Report (Attachment 1) for the Boardroom Audiovisual Modernization Project for 6:00 p.m. on October 28, 2014, at the Santa Clara Valley Water District, Boardroom,at 5700 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, California 95118.The Board’s approval of the recommendation to adopt the Resolution and set the time and place for the public hearing will allow the Boardroom Audiovisual Modernization Project to proceed. If the Board does not approve this recommendation, staff requests Board direction regarding further action for the Project.SUMMARY:The objectives of the Boardroom Audiovisual Modernization Project are to implement a new audiovisual system for the boardroom, its conference rooms and integrate an electronic voting(e-voting) system.
This Project will:a. Improve the Board-meeting viewer’s experience by incorporating state-of-the art AVequipment in the delivery of broadcast services.b. Create a reliable, media-friendly boardroom that will facilitate AV presentations forvarious meetings including the District’s board meetings, and those of civic groups.c. Create high quality and high definition state-of-the-art digital AV system to facilitate anddocument District meetings, voting records, and presentations, and which can be madeavailable via cablecast, broadcast, or the internet, either in simulcast or for subsequentdistribution.d. Create a high quality, user-friendly AV system with enhanced capabilities for person(s)with disabilities.3.8SUBJECT: Resolution Providing for the Notice of Time and Place of the Public Hearing onthe Engineer’s Report for the Boardroom Audiovisual Modernization Project,Project No. 60101011 (San Jose)10-14-2014Page 2 of 3
BACKGROUND: ( SYSTEM WAS UPGRADED LAST 2007, AND OVER 100K ADDED 08-2012, OR IS SITTING OR SURPLUSED… THEN ON GEORGE HALTED ALL WORK AND SOFTWARE CONTRACTS. )The Boardroom’s audiovisual system was designed in 1997 and built in 2000. In addition to theboard’s own public meetings, the existing system is used for the District’s many internaldivisional, unit, and group meetings, and frequently for other general district and communityevents of a business, educational, outreach, or celebratory nature.The existing legacy analog-based audiovisual system, uses technology designed over 17 yearsago and does not provide for enhanced features of an e-voting and high resolution multi-screenviewing, archiving, editing, broadcasting and streaming of digital audio and video signals.This system is not capable of integrating a sophisticated digital e-voting system and relatedfeatures, nor does it have enough capacity or compatibility to provide for additional multi-signalswitching of wired and wireless digital devices that can accommodate multi-scenario featuredmeetings.The existing system requires dedicated staff resources to insure basic operation during boardmeetings. The reliability of this aged system is unpredictable and on many occasions hasexperienced audiovisual devices and power-related deficiencies and failures.Because of the new features requirements, technology limitations and exiting issues, the Project scope will completely overhaul the AV system and provide for a modern electronic voting system.
ENGINEER’S REPORT Section 12 of the District Act requires the Board to conduct a public hearing to hear testimony on a project when: 1) the project is new construction and 2) the project is funded by a single or joint zone of benefit. As the proposed Project meets both conditions, staff prepared anEngineer’s Report titled “Boardroom Audiovisual Modernization Project Engineer’s Report”dated June 2, 2014, (Attachment 1) for the purpose of public disclosure. The Notice of PublicHearing for the Engineer’s report is provided in Attachment 2.FINANCIAL IMPACT:The estimated total planning, design, construction and District labor costs for the Project areapproximately $750,000 to $940,000 (FY 2015 dollars). A budget adjustment will berecommended to the Board later this fiscal year to provide the funds needed for planned Projectconstruction work.CEQA:Recommendation: The recommended action does not constitute a project under CEQA becauseit does not have a potential for resulting in direct or reasonably foreseeable indirect physicalchange in the environment.

1. PROJECT BACKGROUND AND DESCRIPTIONThe Boardroom’s audiovisual system was designed in 1997 and built in 2000 to provide thatera’s state of the art technology platform for the district’s board to communicate with thecommunity it serves. In addition to the board’s own public meetings, the existing system is usedfor the District’s internal divisional, unit, and group meetings and for other general district andcommunity events of a business, educational, outreach, or celebratory nature.The existing analog-based boardroom audiovisual system, uses technology design
The existing system requires dedicated staff resources to insure basic operation during boardmeetings. The reliability of this aged system is unpredictable and on many occasions hasexperienced audiovisual devices and power-related deficiencies and failures
Because of the new features which can’t be integrated in the existing system and due to the (THAT IS A PURE LIE ANYONE CAN CALL ME THE SR TECH AND I WILL PROVE THIS DOCUMENT WRONG 408 759 2613)previously presented issues of reliability, supportability and limitations, it was decided to provide the needed technology by planning a comprehensive system upgrade.The upgrade Project objectives were established by staff, and used to design a new audiovisual ( ASK THEM WHAT STAFF, ANY TECHS? NO THEY ARE TO ASHAMED!)system for the boardroom and conference rooms.This Project will:a. Improve the Board-meeting viewer’s experience by incorporating state-of-the art AVequipment in the delivery of broadcast services.b.
