Not necessarily. We don't know the details, so maybe this is a good thing for Donna.......... keep a good thought until we know more about this, if we ever do.

In the working world we have all seen those type of announcements and know what they mean. Given all the comments about the first two weeks of November, I'm glad we decided to cancel our trip scheduled during that time. While we were not there, I've read plenty of commentary from those who were.

Is she married to "Mr. Reasonable?" or do I have the wrong Grant?

Wrong Grant. Mr. Reasonable's wife is Anna, who was once a bartender at Hedo.

I would have read the situation the same way, but there's other information I think alters that assessment. The Kevin Levee retirement has been planned for quite some time, actually, I think it was delayed by several months. Whenever the GM is changed for any reason (Kevin's planned retirement in this case) there is often other organizational changes at the same time. Donna has been in the HM job since Kevin became the GM, so she's been in that job a long time. Considering how dynamic Hedo is, maybe she's just ready for a break and to do something else. I don't necessarily read her departure as a purge or, as some have suggested, that she's 'taking the fall' for anything. Some may want to speculate about what happened and why, but it's likely we'll never know for sure, and it really doesn't matter at this point; all that matters is she's gone.

It would be wonderful to hear that Donna left to become GM at another resort. In my few dealings with her over the years, I've found her to be competent and professional in a very unique workplace. There is a new sheriff/GM in town and I would think he would want a strong manager to at least help him get his footing in a place such as Hedo, but I think someone had to take the fall.

I think last month with a full or nearly full resort was a time that management needed to stand up to the guests and enforce the rules. Allowing the pool to be packed was a disaster waiting to happen, and it did. I read one group leader's comments about behaving while the authorities were inspecting and then going back to business as usual.

What was Harry and the new GM doing and saying when all this was happening?
