The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
– Paul McCartney
Dear Mr. Newspaperman,
I recently heard that the Kuna Living Center was going to start treating and housing sex offenders. Could you look in to this?
We did look in to this and the answer is NOT TRUE. After speaking with Scott Burpee, the CEO of Safe Haven Health Care, which took over ownership of the Kuna Living Center at the beginning of this year, he explained that it was only misinformation spread by an alleged disgruntled employee.
In a press release issued by Safe Haven Health Care on Tuesday, April 9, Scott Burpee said, “Kuna Living Center has been, and continues to be, home to elderly and disabled residents in the Kuna area. We have no intention of changing the mission of the Kuna Living Center. Rather, we look forward to offering exceptional services and are excited for all that lies ahead.”
“We believe it is important to point out that Safe Haven Health Care has a variety of facilities throughout the state of Idaho. Our continuum of care model is unique and allows us to serve a wide variety of residents. In addition to assisted living facilities, Safe Haven owns and operates behavioral and psychiatric facilities. But, these facilities should not be confused for each other.”
“We believe that every person deserves to live in a safe and secure environment,” said Burpee. “We are proud of the high staff to resident ratio in all of our facilities and always aim to provide expert care with great compassion.”
Dear Mr. Newspaperman,
I heard that El Gallo Giro owns El Tesoro. Is this true?
–A Kuna Teacher
Dear Kuna Teacher,
The long answer is, “NO.”
We spoke with the owner of El Gallo Giro and there is no connection between the two restaurants. There are no family relations, nor business connections between the two. This year El Gallo Giro will be celebrating their 15-year anniversary. We’ll be doing some stories about them later in the year. To learn about El Tesoro, see the article in last week’s Kuna Melba News. Copies are available in our office at 326 Avenue D in downtown Kuna.
