To Whom It May Concern,
I received my Neligh News and Leader on April 13, 2016. In the area news, Mrs. Joan Wright has an article about Mr. C.W. Schonemann filing a financial affidavit during his appearance April 16, and he was granted a court appointed attorney. And that he was released from custody, April 16, after a bond hearing. All the information was in the Neligh News and Leader in the April 13, 2016, issue.
The court hearing was April 6, 2016, and he was reprimanded back to the Antelope County Sheriff’s Office. So how could he be out of jail on Saturday, April 16, when there is no court on Saturday?
Norfolk Daily News always corrects errors when they make a mistake.
There are many other things Mrs. Wright has wrote about in the Neligh News and Leader and her social media page that should not have been released. Hospitals have privacy laws and information should not be given out by a nurse or employees.
How many nurse and employees would lose their jobs if they release information about patients that is suppose to be confidential?
She goes to accidents because she has a scanner as an EMT and then releases a lot of confidential information in the newspaper and her social media page on Facebook. Does she have the right to write articles about personal things that should not be out in the open? She is a registered nurse and EMT. I know a lot of EMT and RNs that refuse to give information about patients and accidents because that is the oath they take when they become a nurse. Why does she get to keep her license and why does she get to put information in the newspaper that only law enforcement should know about until a court date? Does she know the Antelope County police and sheriff department and the Antelope County Hospital so well that she can get what information she wants?
The reason for this letter is to ask everyone: Do you think that Mrs. Joan Wright is Wright (right) for Antelope County Commissioner, District 4?
A concerned citizen,
David Larry Behnk, Clearwater
