ODOT First in Nation to Use Green Strobe Lights on Snowplow Trucks Although portions of Ohio already felt the wrath of winter weather this week, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is still preparing its snow-fighting equipment for the upcoming snow and ice season. Over the next several weeks, ODOT District 9 will conduct 150-point inspections, test and fine-tune snow removal equipment as part of county-by-county Operational Readiness events. New this year, ODOT will battle rear-end crashes as well as snow and ice thanks to the addition of green and white strobe lights to its existing amber lights. The color combination has been proven more visible than amber lights alone. The Adams County Highway Maintenance FacilityS.R. 41, fine

tuned the fleet Thursday, November 1, in preparation for this years winter. All snow-fighting equipment was inspected, tested and fine-tuned by mechanics. The review process of the Colored Strobe Lights suggest that green lights are more easily detected by the human eye than other colors. ODOT will be the first DOT in the nation to use green

strobe lights and will be one of the first states in the nation to use a combination of colors.·ODOT snowplow trucks are rear-ended nearly four times more often than snowplow trucks in Ohio’s neighboring states.·Better visibility will lead to safer roadways as the motoring public can quickly and easily identify these vehicles in adverse weather conditions

The Highland County Chamber of Commerce Red Coats and local public officials also attended the ground-breaking ceremony. On a cool and rainy morning, First State Bank held a ground-breaking ceremony at its new location at 730 Harry Sauner Road in Hillsboro on Monday, October 29. Welcoming those in attendance was First State Bank President and CEO Mike Pell and other bank representatives. As previously reported by The Highland County Press, construction plans for the new First State Bank location are already under way and the bank plans to open its doors to the community in the spring of 2013. The new banking center will offer customers a full range of deposit and loan products for businesses and individuals. The new location will be locally managed and staffed and

will include a drive-up ATM. “Being locally controlled and managed gives us the unique ability to make decisions quickly and to provide more customized services and products that truly benefits residents of the area," Pell said. "Our in-house processing is another unique quality of the First State Bank. We process each transaction and service all our loans in our operation departments at First State Bank." With eight locations across Adams and Brown counties, many people in Highland County have been First State Bank customers for years. This new location will add an addition-

al convenience factor for these residents. “We are looking forward to making our products and services even more accessible to new and existing clients," Pell said. "By having a presence in the community, we are better positioned to fulfill our mission of being a true hometown bank and contribute to the community in which we serve.” First State Bank is dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and high value products and has been a trusted and respected community institution since 1884. “First State Bank is very excited for this opportunity to serve Highland County for many years to come,” Pell said.

SSCC welcomes Montpelier Archaeologist Senator Portman Campaigns for Mitt in Peebles

James Madison’s Montpelier is the site of an archaeological survey and excavation directed by Dr. Matt Reeves who will visit Southern State. Specializing in American slave sites, archaeologist Matt Reeves, Ph.D., will present “Archaeology at James Madison’s Montpelier: Rediscovering and Restoring the Madison Plantation Landscape” 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 13, in the auditorium on Southern State Community College’s Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro. The speaking event is free and open to the public. “My classes have been working with Dr. Reeves for a number of years now, and I am thrilled that he is finally able to visit Southern State,” said Don Storer, Ph.D., professor of chemistry at SSCC. The Director of Archaeology at James Madison’s Montpelier, Dr. Reeves’ specialty is sites of the African Diaspora—including plantation and freedman period sites—and Civil War sites. He has worked on plantation sites in the Caribbean, Maryland and Virginia. Over the past 12 years at Montpelier in Orange County, Va., Dr. Reeves has excavated two plantation complexes of the Madison family, locating dozens of Civil War encampments, slave quarters, mill sites and work areas. As part of his speaking engagement, Dr. Reeves will also visit with Southern State students in their classrooms. “Students in my chemistry classes are required to complete a final project that introduces them to research and puts the chemistry they have learned into a context that makes the reason for learning it more understandable,” said Dr. Storer. “Next semester, the students will be involved in analyzing soil samples from Montpelier. They will test the soils and then provide the archaeologists with three-dimensional maps of the elements. “The students don’t have to be archaeologists to benefit from this work but, by completing this project, the uniqueness of it will make our students stand out among the other applicants when applying for pre-professional programs or scholarships.” For more information on Dr. Reeves’ November 13 presentation on archaeology, please contact Dr. Storer at 1-800-628-7722, ext. 2645, or dstorer@sscc.edu.

Comment Period Open For Proposed Adams County Projects As part of the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9’s Planning & Engineering Department, the district’s Environmental Office is seeking public input on the following proposed projects. The proposed project is the replacement of a culvert that carries the unnamed tributary of Big Three Mile Creek along state Route 41 in Sprigg Township. The existing culvert is an 11-foot wide corrugated metal pipe and is located at the 0.96-mile marker, just north of Manchester. The existing culvert will be lined with a concrete linear pipe. The project will require approximately 0.025 acres of permanent right of way; however, no homes or businesses will be removed. The proposed project is to replace the deck on the bridge over Middle Branch of Mill Creek in Brush Creek Township. The existing bridge is a three-span steel beam with reinforced concrete deck on reinforced concrete substructure. No new right of way will be needed for the project, and no homes or businesses will be removed by the project. Some small trees and bushes will be removed as part of the project around each of the bridge structures; however, none of the trees have the habitat for the federally endangered Indiana Bat. Highway Maintenance Facility It is proposed to buy approximately 15.033

acres to construct a new maintenance facility in Adams County. Located just north of the current ODOT garage in West Union, the land is owned by Adams County Community Improvement Corporation and is being developed by the Adams County Economic and Community Development. The new right of way is located in a pasture field. No homes or businesses will be removed by the project; however, some small trees and bushes will be removed. None of the trees have the habitat for the federally endangered Indiana Bat and no streams, rivers or watercourses will be affected. Additional information regarding these projects, including a complete project description, maps and plans sheets, is available online at http://www.dot.state.oh.us/districts/D09/Pa ges/Public-Involvement-Process.aspx. Issues the public may wish to comment on include the effect on local residents, air quality, the local economy, and historic or cultural resources. Written comments should be submitted by November 12, 2012, or the deadline date that is posted on the web site, to: Greg Manson, Environmental Supervisor ODOT District 9 P.O.

The Brown County Sheriff’s Office was awarded $5,000.00 by the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) for its outstanding work in the field of prescription drug abuse enforcement. NADDI is a non-profit organization that facilitates cooperation between law enforcement, healthcare professionals, state regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical manufacturers in the prevention and investigation of prescription drug diversion. Sheriff Dwayne Wenninger said, "These funds will be used to further my efforts in fighting the drug abuse problems we have here in Brown County. We have received these funds on three separate occasions since I took office in 2001. We have received a total of $25,000.00 which is used to help fund the cost of investigations into prescription drug abuse. With the tight budget we have to work with, we are very fortunate to receive these funds." The Law Enforcement Grant initiative was developed through funding provided by Purdue Pharma, L.P. to help address prescription drug diversion and to put more resources in the hands of law enforcement to help combat prescription drug abuse and diversion.

Ohioans should be aware of the state’s outdoor burning regulations and take necessary precautions if they are planning to burn debris during this time of year, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Forestry. Ohio law states outdoor debris burning is prohibited from 6:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. during October and November. Burning is limited in the fall due to the abundance of dry fuel on the ground from dried grasses and weeds, in addition to fallen autumn leaves. Winds can make a seemingly safe fire burn quite hazardous. “Each fall, Ohio has the potential for wildfires,” said Robert Boyles, chief of the ODNR Division of Forestry. “The risk of wildfires increases on dry days when people are careless with debris fires that can easily escape control and spread.” If a fire does escape control, immediately contact the local fire department. An escaped wildfire, even one burning in grass or weeds, is dangerous. Violators of Ohio’s burning regulations are subject to citations and fines. Residents should also check Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) regulations and consult with local fire officials about burning conditions. The ODNR Division of Forestry offers these safety tips for burning debris outdoors:

* Consider using a 55-gallon drum with a weighted screen lid to provide an enclosed incinerator. * Know current and future weather conditions, have suppression tools on hand and always stay with a debris burn. * Be informed about state and local burning regulations. * Consult the local fire department for additional information and safety considerations. * Visit ohiodnr.com/forestry and firewise.org for more information and tips on protecting a home and community. Remember, Smokey Bear says, “Only you can prevent wildfires!” The ODNR Division of Forestry works to promote the wise use and sustainable management of Ohio’s public and private woodlands.

Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan M. Garcia announced that the 2012 FSA county committee elections began on Monday, November 5, with the mailing of ballots to eligible voters. The deadline to return the ballots to the FSA offices is December 3, 2012. “The role and input of our county committee members is more vital than ever,” said Garcia. “New county committee members provide input and make important decisions on the local administration of disaster and conservation programs. With better participation in recent years, we also have seen promising increases in the number of women and minority candidates.” Eligible voters who do not receive ballots in the coming week can obtain ballots from their local USDA Service Center. December 3, 2012, is the last day for voters to submit ballots in person to local USDA Service Centers. Ballots returned by mail must also be postmarked no later than December 3. Newly elected committee members and their alternates will take office January 1, 2013. To be an eligible voter, farmers and

ranchers must participate or cooperate in an FSA program. A person who is not of legal voting age, but supervises and conducts the farming operations of an entire farm also may be eligible to vote. Agricultural producers in each county submitted candidate nominations during the nomination period, which ended August 1. While FSA county committees do not approve or deny farm operating loans, they make decisions on disaster and conservation programs, emergency programs, commodity price support loan programs and other agricultural issues. Members serve three-year terms. Nationwide, there are about 7,700 farmers and ranchers serving on FSA county committees.

Cuffs and Collars Field reports from Ohio Division of Wildlife Officers Southwest Ohio While patrolling the Great Miami River in Butler County for fishing license compliance, officers Schock and Ireland observed two individuals along the bank. As the officers made their way toward them, Officer Schock noticed that one of the individuals disappeared. The officers made contact with the angler that did not leave the area and checked for a valid license and asked about the other individual with him. The officers were told he did not know who the individual was, or where he went. Officer Schock and Ireland began to search the area for the other individual and discovered him fishing up stream looking back in the direction he originally was. The officers were able go to his location and Ireland made contact with him. As Officer Ireland was approaching him, the angler threw his fishing pole and stated,"You thought you had me. I’m not fishing." Officer Ireland advised him he was observed fishing and asked where the fishing pole was. The individual said, "OK, I will show you." The officers escorted him to the location of the fishing pole, which was in the weeds along the bank. The officers discovered that the individual had been issued a summons several years ago for the same violation. The defendant was issued a summons for fishing without a valid license. Southeast Ohio On September 1, Wildlife Officer Bob Nelson was on patrol at Ross Lake Wildlife Area and observed an angler on the west side of the lake. He went to check the fisherman, and while doing that he located a plastic Wal-Mart sack with a bait container and a receipt inside. The customer paid for one container of night crawlers, a resident fishing license and a duplicate fish-

ing license. Officer Nelson then went to the Wal-Mart in Chillicothe where the items were purchased. He met with security and they were able to pull up the surveillance footage of the suspects buying the licenses and bait. The personnel at Wal-Mart were unable to

get a suspect name based on the purchase, but did provide Officer Nelson with photos of the suspects. Officer Nelson accessed the license database and ran a search of all licenses sold at Wal-Mart in Chillicothe that day. The last two licenses of the day matched the time the suspects made the purchase, and the licenses that were on the receipt were the same type in the database. Officer Nelson was able to the get customer ID numbers and determined who the suspects were. Officer Nelson interviewed the female suspect, and upon further investigation it was discovered she purchased the items. She stated that she was responsible for leaving the trash behind and apologized. She was issued a summons for littering. She pleaded no contest in the Chillicothe Municipal Court and was found guilty. She was ordered to pay $55 in fines and $100 in court costs. Northeast Ohio While patrolling Killbuck Marsh State Wildlife Area, Ashland County Wildlife Officer Brennan Earick observed a vehicle parked along Valley Road. As he walked toward Killbuck Creek he noticed an individual fishing along the water’s edge. Shortly thereafter, he watched as the man retrieved a small pipe from

his pants pocket. The man appeared paranoid as he looked around before placing the pipe in his mouth and lighting it. He inhaled from the pipe several times before placing it back in his pocket. Officer Earick approached the man and asked to see his fishing license. After inspecting the individual’s license, he inquired about the pipe. "What pipe?" asked the man. Officer Earick stated, "The one you have in your pocket." At that point the man retrieved the pipe from his pocket and handed it to Officer Earick. He asked the man what he was smoking and he indicated "spice," a synthetic form of marijuana. Officer Earick charged him with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. The man appeared in Wayne County Municipal Court and was ordered to pay over $400 in fines and court costs. Central Ohio On September 1, the opening day of early migratory bird hunting season, wildlife officers from central Ohio worked the marshes of Big Island Wildlife Area in Marion County. Marion County Wildlife Officer Chad Grote and Union County Wildlife Officer Josh Shields paired up to check teal hunters. They were hidden in the marsh well before sunrise. When the birds began to fly, Shields and Grote took notes about what they saw and contacted the hunters as they left the marsh. Shields issued a citation to one hunter for harvesting a mallard hen in a closed season. Grote issued a citation to one hunter that harvested a northern shoveler in a closed season. Most of the hunters had a successful morning and left with a bag limit of four teal. The two hunters in violation were found guilty in the Marion County Municipal Court and each paid $180 in fines and costs and forfeited their unlawfully harvested ducks.

-Focus on concerns, not worries. A concern can be changed, such as setting the alarm clock if you need to get to work on time. A worry is something you can't do anything about, like getting caught in a terrorist attack. See more in next weeks edition.

Jookees of thee week by Georgge

A great leader is one who never permits his followers to discover that he is as dumb as they are. A man was asked why he never married? He replied, "Well, I I would rather go through life wanting something I didn't have then having something I didn't want." A diplomatic huband said to his wife, "How do you expect me to remember your birthday when you never look any older!" George Perry

Where are the Hedge Apples Submitted by Faye Mahaffey OSUE Brown County Master Gardener Volunteer This year a "first" has happened at the Mahaffey’s. Instead of tackling the chore of tossing hedge apples over into the tree line (last year I tossed around 750), I have thrown over a mere three! What has happened to all those hedge apples this year? I have asked several friends who have Osage-orange trees on their property and they report a bumper crop. The Osage-orange (Maclura pomifera), is a member of the Mulberry family. It can grow to a height of 30 – 40 feet. This ornamental tree was named after Osage Indians, who made bows and war clubs from the wood. Its dimpled fruit resembles a very rough, green orange, and has been called Horse Apples or Hedge Apples. OSUE Bulletin 700, Ohio Trees, explains that the Osageorange is found distributed throughout the state, but does not as a rule occur as a forest tree. It grows chiefly in open fields and along fence rows. It was widely planted as a hedge during the last century, as it could retain animals such as bulls and boars. This was the first tree sample Lewis and Clark sent back from the Louisiana Territory in 1804. The oldest living Osageorange tree is estimated to be 350-400 years old in Virginia. The leaves are simple, alter-

nate, and oval in outline. The leaf tip is pointed. Foliage is a handsome and lustrous green on the upper surface. Leaves are 2-5 inches long and 2-3 inches wide. Foliage color is bright yellow in the autumn. Trunks on old trees are deeply furrowed and have dark orange furrows. The bark contains tannin and has been used for tanning leather. The wood is hard, tough and durable, being used largely for posts, sometimes for lumber, and fuel. Yellow substance from the roots was used to dye clothing and baskets. Now back to the mystery of my missing Hedge Apples. I have to admit that I have never noticed the flowers blooming on my Osage-orange trees. After some research I have learned that the yellowish flowers (sometimes described as clusters of green-to-cream flowers) appear in May and are Dioecious. The male flowers are borne in a linear cluster or catkin. Since the male flowers are borne on separate trees, it is possible to select for fruitless trees. Female flowers are round balls that are 1 inch in diameter. The female flower yields the globular, 2-5 inches in diameter, Hedge Apple. Since the trees bloom around the same time, the male and female flowers rely on crosspollination to help set fruit. Pollination takes place via the wind or by insects that carry the pollen on their bodies and feet from tree to tree.

Did we experience a late hard frost last spring? The blazing heat of the summer months has dulled my memory. Did "Mother Nature" cause my shortage of Hedge Apples? I will have to do further research before giving a definite answer. Or maybe I will stick with my favorite reply, "It depends". Be sure to mark your calendars for the November 15th gardening seminar at the Fincastle campus of Southern State Community College. Louis Mays, professor and librarian at SSCC, will speak about Edible Landscaping. Louis and his brother Tom maintain the Mays Garden at Lake Waynoka. All seminars are free and are held in the SSCC library from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. I’m finally getting the tomato cages stored away. The last of the leaves have finely fallen and we are ready to chop them up with the mower and add them to the garden and composter. I have some bulbs I need to plant before the ground freezes, how about you?

October Jobs Report

The following information about the unemployment rate rising to 7.9 percent, considerably higher than the 5.4 percent unemployment rate the Administration promised. Four years ago, President Obama was sworn into office after championing a message of hope and change; four years later, the unemployment rate is rising. He promised sweeping reforms that would boost our hurting economy, including a trillion dollar stimulus package that would reduce unemployment to 5.4 percent and policies to reduce the deficit in half by now. Today's high 7.9 percent unemployment and $16 trillion record debt show that the President's reckless pattern of spending, taxing, borrowing and regulating is

not working; the Administration's policies have failed by its own standards. Families in Ohio and across the nation are weary of the empty rhetoric. They are struggling to make ends meet amid a hurting economy, and the U.S. Senator current policies are not Rob Portman helping to turn the (R) economy around and create jobs for them and their children. Future generations cannot afford four years like the last, and Washington cannot risk kicking the can down the road any further. We need new leadership to implement pro-growth policies that will give our economy a shot in the arm, create jobs, and unleash the entrepreneurial spirit of the American people that has made our nation great.

In March, Brown Joined Workers to Celebrate New, Three-Year Contract and New Production in Brooklyn Plant U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Oh.) visited Hugo Boss to meet with workers and provide an update on a new production line at the company’s Brooklyn facility. In March 2012, Brown joined company workers to celebrate a new, three-year labor contract that coincided with Hugo Boss’ investment in the new Boss Black collection "Made to Order" program. The new program will allow customers to design their own suiting and shirting, as well as ties and pocket squares, in select Hugo Boss stores within the U.S. market. All “Made to Order” pieces will be manufactured in Brooklyn—the company's only manufacturing facility in the United States. “We know how to make things in Ohio. Our state has always been known for its excellence in auto and aerospace manufacturing, but Hugo Boss and its employees are showing how Ohio can lead in textile and apparel manufacturing, too,” Brown said. “Hugo Boss and Workers United have proven how management and employees can work together to increase productivity and create new jobs. Manufacturing is critical to Ohio's econo-

my, and I look forward to seeing Hugo Boss’ continued success in the Cleveland area.” Two years ago, Hugo Boss’ Brooklyn plant teetered on the brink of closure. With Brown’s assistance, Hugo Boss and Workers United agreed to a new contract that has resulted in a renewed life for the facility. According to Hugo Boss, since 2010, the Cleveland facility has achieved efficiency and quality ratings that are unparalleled in the industry. Additionally, the company has added 35 new manufacturing jobs since its reopening. Brown worked closely with Workers United and Hugo Boss to keep the plant open. In July 2010, Brown joined Hugo Boss workers to celebrate the ‘first suit off the line’ at the Brooklyn plant, which is the only U.S. suit manufacturing facility of the German company. Brown has also been a strong supporter of efforts to maintain the Wool Tariff Trust Fund, which levels the playing field for American textile and apparel manufacturers. The “wool trust fund” provides relief for U.S. suit makers and is funded by tariffs on wool imports. It encourages the manufacture of high-quality wool suits—like the ones made at Hugo Boss— and helps preserve American textile jobs.

Dear Miss Needles Dear Miss Needles: I saw a beautiful pillow in a craft mall and the tag said it was Candlewick. What is that craft and what needles and thread do I need to purchase to do my own pillow? Sign me Why Knot Dear Why Knot: Candlewick or candlewicking is a form of embridery/hand needle work that is usually composed of a series of colonial knots. It is made with thicker thread, and a larger needle. Thread is made specifically for candlewicking and it looks more like crocket cotton than embroidery floss but is it a cross between the two. Usually I use a size 24 chenille needle and all six strands of embroidery floss. Sturdy cotton fabric and an

embroidery hoop and you are in business. Colonial Knot - vsFrench Knot - Before someone writes in and asks, the colonial knot is made the same way a a French Knot in embroidery. There are books at the library and there are free instructions on line, so have fun. Perhaps someone will send in pictures of their work to this paper. Dear Miss Needles: After one long year I finally finished knittinga sweater for my daughter. It is too short, although the arms and shoulders fit. Any suggestions? Signed, TooLong Dear TL: You can always add a few inches to the bottom of the project by crochet or cast on the bottom with a circular

knitting needle and add inches that way. Fringe and a cable swatch, a tie, there are lots of ways to add on and make it look planned. Good luck. Do you have a question you would like Miss Needles to answer? If so, please write to her at dearmissneedles @yahoo.com or via the mail in case of The Informer.

Angel Tree tags represent area children whose parents have applied for assistance. These are the only dates for sign-ups.

Date: November 8th and November 13th Where: Bible Baptist Church 9840 State Route 41 West Union, Ohio 45693 Time: 5:00pm - 8:00pm What to bring: Current Proof of residency: Must reside in Adams County. Applicants need to bring in pieces of identification for all adults in the household and of the child or children who would receive gifts; Social Security cards for all members of the household; birth Certificates for all children; and Proof of Income - including Unemployment, Child Support, Social Security and Food Stamps. If an applicant is not the birth parent of the child or children who would receive gifts, proof of guardianship is required. For questions please call Kathryn Thompson @ 937-779-9077. Or email at kathompson@ohiochristian.edu CHRISTMAS CHARITY The "miracle" of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing. The traditional Angel Tree is an integral part of the Christmas scene, each year hundreds apply for aid needy families, seniors, and the homeless, in keeping with the spirit of the season. The Salvation Army endeavors to bring spiritual light and love to those it serves at Christmas so that the real meaning of the season is not forgotten. Angel Tree gives individuals and partnering corporations an opportunity to adopt less fortunate children and disabled adults and provide personalized gifts and necessities to those who would otherwise receive very little or nothing during the holiday season. Companies, business owners and individuals interested in donating gifts for the children please call for details! If you and your business would like to help, there are three ways you can do so:

- Adopt An Angel - Drop off gifts - Donate monetarily;

Anyone Interested Help by Donating or Adopt a Family this Year Please call or email. For questions please call Kathryn Thompson @ 937-779-9077.

HEALTH MATTERS Health Care Trends Impacting You Adams County Medical Foundation Gala Overview of payment trends associated with hospitals and physician offices as the industry struggles to change and become more efficient. Many of these changes will directly impact individual patients and their families. For example: "Thank you for your insurance information and choosing our office for your dermatology needs. All we need now is an advance payment of $75.00 and we can schedule your appointment. Please be advised that you will be required to pay additional fees prior to scheduling any follow up procedures or testing which may be recommended as a result of this visit." This type of message is being heard loudly across physician offices, hospitals and surgery centers across the country as patients confront the real consequences of lower insurance coverage and health care providers are forced to deal with the higher percentage of

uninsured and under insured which they see. It's a huge issue in health care as it is creating unprecedented losses with less than 10% of all billed patient fees actually being paid regionally. The losses threaten the ability of physicians and hospitals to continue providing care. While the example above refers to dermatology, it is a pervasive issue across all health care specialties and locations of care. What used to be referred to as charity care and bad debt is increasing dramatically as the recession and growth of higher deductible insurance plans forces patients to pay more and more of the costs out of pocket. In Adams County, we've been fortunate to have avoided this for some time while neighboring hospitals and physician offices in the region have moved to advanced payment on all but emergency services. Unfortunately, the rapid growth of loss in this area will likely lead to advance

payment requirements at ACRMC and associated physician offices in the near future. If you have any questions, please call an ACRMC Patient Financial Representative, at 937-386-3449, before scheduling your appointment. Patient Financial Representatives work with our patients and their families to assist them in better understanding their current insurance benefits as well as options for payments and/or payment plans available to them. ACRMC is committed to making your health care more accessible and easier to manage financially and that often begins with planning. Many care treatment plans require pre-authorization by your insurance company for coverage and payment which you may not be aware of. In addition, some services which are covered may require additional or very specific documentation from your primary care physician or specialist.

Thank You The Adams County Medical Foundation Board of Trustees extends sincere appreciation to the sponsors, donors, and volunteers of the 2012 Foundation Gala, Night at the Oscars. The event, benefiting women’s health, was held to assist with the purchase of a digital mammography machine for ACRMC. The Gala was held on Friday, October 12, at the Red Barn Convention Center in Winchester, Ohio. Over 250 people enjoyed an evening with a delicious dinner prepared by Hesler’s Catering and outstanding entertainment by Rosie Young, Sharon Campbell, and Kevin Leis and the Quartet. Master of Ceremonies, Don Bowles, kept the evening lively and was joined by Dean Brown who hosted the live auction. The live auction featured packages such as the “Little Black Dress”, “Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens tickets”, “Murphin Ridge Inn Get Away”, “Gatlinburg Area Escape” and many more high end packages. The live and silent auctions broke an alltime record bringing in over $11,000. Karen Hughes, Joyful Hearts Photography, captured the evening in photographs and RD Malcom, DJ, provided entertainment during the opening social and the dance which closed the event. The Gala grossed over $36,000 with all net proceeds applied towards the purchase of a digital mammography machine. The Foundation received a grant that pays for 63% of the cost of the machine but leaves approximately $150,000 in unmet need. Fundraising efforts are focused on closing this gap. All of us are directly affected by breast cancer. We have had it, will get it, or lost someone to it. It affects all of us. In 2011 and so far in 2012, ACRMC has done 3,574 mammograms. The statistics are staggering in that one in eight women will get breast cancer and one in four cancers diagnosed in the USA will be breast cancer. Digital mammography detects breast cancer earlier – therefore a higher survival rate. If you are interested in contributing towards the purchase of the digital mammography machine, please contact the Adams County Medical Foundation at 230 Medical Center Drive, Seaman, OH 45679 or call 937-386-3701. The Foundation expresses sincere appreciation for the outstanding support received from the community in helping us reach our goal. Thank you!
