EASILY, Please get in touch with me via email.
The address is StkrePETER@aol.com. I`d like to
communicate with you but I prefer to stay off the board. It
seems I just don`t have the time for this anymore. The
2 part time jobs I had to take because of
"wackenoff" really eat up the day.
you can't place a price tag on you
conscience! On your death bed, you will have wished you had
soared with the eagles, lived vicariously through
others, and most of all, sold your WHC before it drops to
seven and then the Black Wednesday roles around in
Mid-August, dragging WHC shares to an all time low of 4.125
in early 2001.
Just thought you should be
The numbers are hard to find. I know of no single
source that looks at contract prices, per diems, etc. I
understand your point about not wanting dirty hands. I got
into CSCQ several years ago, and as soon as I learned
how Slattery did business, I got out...fortunately
without a loss. Informatively, that was when the stock
was trading a 14+. There were posters at that time
who advised hanging on, bound to turn up, etc.

I'm remember when everyone hated AOL a few short
years ago while it lingered in the teens. Where were
you then, buying WHC in the high $20's?
point of investing is buy low, sell high. It's
simple...say after me....B..u..y
l..o..w...s..e..l..l...h..i..g..h. Not the other way around which you are indicating
you will do. As the old saying goes, "a fool and his
money are soon parted".
Before you make any hasty
decisions on selling your shares, I would recommend
watching "The Green Mile!" After seeing that moving I sold
all 3000 of my shares @ 9.375! This was a huge loss
for me but I feel alot better and am thinking about
buying into AOL, the upside is huge! Can you pass on
what other stocks you are looking at, as you are
obviously the most (only) informed investor on this
I appreciate the point, rockfishr. Unfortunately,
finding this type of aggregate information is difficult.
I realise the inherent disincentive for decent
facilities and rehab programs built into the low cost bid
structure. I wouldn't mind being in a "bad" business, if I
thought my company was improving it. As it stands
however, my shares are on the selling block. There are
plenty of other undervalued growing companies out there
that don't require me to compromise my morals.
I don't want to get into the name-calling, but it
may be helpful to look at some numbers. In LA, WHC is
receiving $70 p/d. CSC was receiving $63 at Tallulah, and
Tallulah staff were driving into MS looking for juvenile
jobs at the end of their shifts. In VA, as a
comparison, the average cost is about $116 p/d, and these are
no palaces. They have been cited by DOJ for poor
operations. If you want to look for a source of the problem,
look at state contracting authorities, who are driven
by the lowest cost bid, without consideration of
quality. There are good private operations, and good
government operations. But both also have their blemishes.
It's not an area where all the angels are dancing on
the same pin.
