MENA REGIONAL HOSPITAL REPORTS INCREASE IN ADMISSIONS D

uring the June meeting of the Mena Regional Health System Board of Directors, hospital CEO/Administrator Jay Quebedeaux reported the hospital had a good month in May. He stated admissions are up over last year and there have been more outpatient registrations. According to Quebedeaux’s report, the hospital’s average daily census is up to 24.3 this year. Last year, the average daily census was 19.7. Quebedeaux explained that’s a big deal with Medicaid reimbursement. He also reported there have been 720 admissions, 103 babies born and 3,830 people have visited the

hospital’s emergency room. Quebedeaux informed the board that the hospital staff was still gathering cost benefit information about a new electronic ER medical records system that would interface with the hospital’s current computer systems. Quebedeaux stated the system would cost about $8,500 a month, but would help ensure procedures are coded properly for billing purposes. He stated the hospital’s current paper coding system costs $1,500 a month. Mena Regional Health System is also attempting to recruit a family practitioner for its staff.

Annell Rose, Environmental Services Department at Mena Regional Health System, was recently named the iCARE Star Employee of the Quarter. As the recipient of this honor, Annell received a paid day off, a personal framed certificate, reserved parking for the duration of the quarter, and her name on the iCARE progressive plaque displayed on the iCARE Wall of Fame.

lesson plans centered around civic engagement. “I love that the ADOL program gave my students a connection to their community and ownership in something,” said Ashcraft. “It taught my students that they could make a difference.” “My favorite part of the program was using the historic objects and working with students daily,” said Schuller. “The students began thinking that they live in a larger circle, not just home community, I loved that. The school and community are supportive of these students, and I can’t wait to follow their journey.” “I am proud of the Arkansas educators who have dedicated their time

Together we are transforming Arkansas to lead the nation in student-focused education.” The Declaration of Learning program was formed in 2013 as part of an inter-agency educational initiative that began when representative from 13 national organizations signed the Declaration of Learning. This declaration pledged that these organizations would work with state and local partners to create learning tools for educators and students in middle and secondary education. Arkansas is the first state to participate in the program.

ment projects developed through the program. Partners are currently working on developing a website that will allow educators across the nation to have access to the lesson plans created by Arkansas teachers. “This program is a great learning experience for teachers and students,” said Cassandra Barnett, the ADE program advisor for school libraries. “Teachers who participate receive extensive training and support from history and art experts throughout the

development of the lesson plans. Because of the hard work of these teachers, students have the opportunity to explore real world issues using art and historic objects. We want our students to see that the past can inform our present, and through civic engagement, they can impact our future.” The program recently began its fourth year, with applications for the fifth year scheduled to open in January 2019.

POLK COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE RECEIVES REPORTS OF UTILITY SCAM P olk County Sheriff Scott Sawyer announced his office has received several calls from local businesses about a utility scam. Sawyer reported a couple of the businesses were scammed out of money. According to the report, callers are posing as a local utility company like SWEPCO or REA and telling business owners that their electricity will be cut off unless they pay the past due amount immediately. The caller informs the business that they can pay with a credit card or they can provide them with the number from a pre-paid gift card or green dot card. Sawyer stated the phone call is the

first clue that it’s a scam, because local utility companies do not call businesses in reference to past due accounts. He said the second clue is the request for a credit card number. Sawyer stated local utility companies would not ask for a customer’s credit card number over the phone. He also stated legitimate business won’t ask a customer to purchase a green dot card or pre-paid debit card. Sawyer said if you receive a call from someone claiming to be from a local utility company that you should hang up and contact the local utility office and verify your account.

SURFACING PROJECT GOOD FOR POLK COUNTY

T

he Polk County Road Department is working on the 2018 surfacing project and according to Polk County Judge Brandon Ellison’s office, the project started in the winter of 2017. Ellison said roads and portions of roads including Polk 57 between Nunley and Board Camp, Polk 401 in the Old Dallas area, Polk 51 and 299 east of Mena, East Boundary Road near Mena, Polk 31 between Hatfield and Cove, and Polk 282 near Hatfield are including in the project. He said approximately 90 percent of the roads and portions of roads that are included in this 9.3-mile project were completely rebuilt. Ellison said road crews began by removing pavement, did some widening, elevated sub-grades in low areas, and replaced or added some drainage structures. He said after compaction was complete, a road base was added and “set-up” began for the surfacing operation. Ellison said a small concrete bridge was also constructed on Polk 57.

Ellison reported surfacing consists of the application of primer oil, followed by two layers of asphalt emulsion and crushed aggregate chips. He explained there is a 3 to 14 day delay between the application of primer and hard surfacing. Ellison reported he submitted a project that could possibly be eligible for limited funding under the Secure Rural Schools Act. He also announced the county will be reimbursed for a portion of the Polk 57 project by the US Forestry Service through the Resource Advisory Committee. Ellison said the county would be awarded $266,970.55 following the completion of the project. In addition to that funding, the City of Mena will reimburse Polk County $33,013.50 for the city’s half of the cost on the shared border road of East Boundary. In total, the cost for all of the roads and portions of roads that were listed above, including equipment, material, and labor will be an estimated $850,000, or a net cost of $550,000 after reimbursements.

Elks furnish veterans with food, comfort care items, therapeutic items, and gifts; provide recreational activities at military bases and hospitals; and stand ready to assist veterans in any way possible. Last year along, Elks’ contributions provided more than $40.8 million to more than 300 US Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers, clinics, and state care facilities, as well as to homeless veterans.

WHEN GOD DOES NOT HEAL, WHAT THEN?

WE all enjoy It when someone shares with us the blessing of Divine healing. We rejoice with them, and we should. But there is another side which must also be acknowledged as the Hand of God at work in our lives. For every testimony of healing there are many who have prayed, who have gone through the Biblical plan for healing, and were not healed. What is the answer to the question of “why”? First of all we must acknowledge the absolute sovereignty of God, and we then must know that He loves all of His “kids”, and does not have “favorites.” In the parable of the Prodigal son, the one son messed up his life, but at no point did the father stop loving him, and at no point do we see him loving one son more than the other. And then we need to remember that when Jesus was teaching those first believers how to pray, He gave to them the “model” prayer, and in that prayer, right up front He said “…Thy will be done…” (Mt. 6:9). In every prayer of every kind, for every purpose there must always be the submission of the one praying to the “will of God.” And, as we are told in the Scriptures, and as we have experienced in life, His will and our will are not always the same. Would that it were, but it isn’t. So how should we respond when God doesn’t heal? Well, it doesn’tJanuary mean that6,He2016 doesn’t care, for He always cares for His kids, each of them, and not just the “super spiritual.” Jesus made it clear that His love for “the least of these” was just as real as i11t is for those who may walk a bit closer to Him day by day. His love is not conditioned on our achievement in the Walk; it is conditioned by His own love for us. Second, we need to be very careful that in our prayer, for healing or anything else, that we do not pray against the purpose of God. And while some may think that healing is for everyone at all times, the great apostle Paul knew better. Paul had a problem. There is reason to believe that he was losing his eyesight. In Galatians 4: 15 Paul complimented the Galatians that they would have plucked out their own eyes “and given them to me.” In II Corinthians (12: 8,9) Paul said that he prayed three times that God would remove his “thorn in the flesh” (v. 7). God did not, Paul understood and accepted God’s will in the matter. He wrote “And He has said to me ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness, most gladly I will therefore boast in my weakness (his “thorn in the flesh”) that the power of Christ might tabernacle over me.” Third, we must remember that God’s goal for us is nothing other than the creation of the exact image of Jesus Christ in us, and that can, and often does, bring some painful experiences. Peace comes to us when we yield to His Plan, His will, in whatever it may be. Healing? Yes! Absolutely, but only when it is the will of God! And sometimes, as with Paul, His purpose overshadows our purposes. We want to be healed. Why? So that we can honor Him? Or is there some other reason? Can we not honor Him where we are? Can circumstances rule us? Can sickness keep us from our role as witnesses to Him and His saving Grace? The answer is obvious. Yielding to Him and to His purpose for our lives does two major things. First, it gives us the “peace that passes understanding,” and second, it preserves and empowers our witness. My name is Gene Stacks and I approve of this message. PAID FOR BY GENE STACKS
