Kiowa man dies in train collision By Yvonne Miller James D. Talbott, known as Tuffy by locals, died in a train crash in his hometown of Kiowa, Kan. The accident happened Saturday evening at 6:35 at the Hardtner Road/ Railroad Avenue crossing. That is the crossing on the north end of Kiowa, just west of K2 Highway and D&W Body Shop. According to the Kansas Highway Patrol report, Talbott, 43, drove a 2003 Chevy pickup west on Hardtner Road, arriving at the crossing of Railroad Avenue where the crossing arm was down and red lights flashing. Talbott reportedly waited for the first (northbound) train to pass.

the KHP report states, he drove around the crossing arm and drove in front of a second southbound train and was struck. Part of the pickup remained at that crossing. The train came to rest just before the Main Street crossing with part of the truck still attached to the front. The scene was filled with law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMTs

and other emergency workers. Talbott was taken to the Lanman Funeral Home in Kiowa. Engineer of the 1998 Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad train was John D. Connelly, 41, of Amarillo, Texas. He and the conductor were uninjured. The conductor was Michael Mayfield, 41, also of Amarillo.

South Barber School Board extends contracts to administrators By Yvonne Miller Contracts for the 2011-2012 school year were extended to Superintendent Brad Morris and principals Marcia Cantrell and Fred Gillig by the South Barber Board of Education. This action was taken at the board’s March meeting Monday night that was filled with executive sessions and lasted about three hours. PK-6 Principal Cantrell had requested one of those executive sessions which lasted about an hour. When the board extended contracts, they announced that for the 2012-13 school year, Cantrell will retire to half time. The board accepted the retirement announcement of Glenda Alexander as secretary at the elementary school effective at the end of this school year. All board members attended the meeting including President Bryan Quick and members Janet Robison, Michael Anderson, Jeff Black, Deb Helfrich and Kent Swartz. Board members spent a total of 85 minutes in executive session as they evaluated the superintendent. Another executive session to discuss non-elected personnel lasted 15 minutes with no action taken following. Other changes in personnel included: approval of Wes Rugg as Assistant Tennis Coach to head coach Alex Rugg; approval of Kay Roberts as an assistant track coach; acceptance of Ashly Wright’s resignation as cook at the elementary school; approval of Hollie

Johnson as a substitute teacher for the district. Combined Sports Banquet, Promotion Senior/Junior High Principal Gillig said they had a meeting attended by nine parents that recommended the middle school sports banquet and promotion be combined. Gillig said this would do away with formal dress and walking in to the processional. At that event, students will receive academic, sports and any special awards. Board members unanimously approved the combined event. Board approved payment of current bills totaling $300,898.28 Superintendent Morris reminded there is a Meet and Greet for school board and city council candidates March 29 at 7 p.m., at Kiowa’s Community Building. Administrators Update Superintendent Morris said a service maintenance consultant visited the school to do a preventative maintenance study. The purpose is to help cut energy costs, minimize down time, reduce repairs and help extend the life of the school’s equipment. Morris said they should have results in a few weeks and the consultant, Mr. Sanders, will present at the April board meeting. Morris said the water heater at the elementary school will be replaced with Graves Plumbing. Coontz Roofing finished roof repairs at the elementary last week and reportedly “all went well,”

Morris said. A Venture representative looked at the high school parking lot and will have an estimate this week. Cantrell said 3rd grade teacher Tia Speed organized a class project where students created their own stories and illustrations about penquins after research. Put into a book, their work was published. The principal passed the book around at the board meeting. Cantrell said they had several third graders who scored “very high” in Study Island curriculum which prepares students for state assessments. The elementary starts a new project involving students reading to Kiowa Manor residents. 6th graders Emily Rugg, Bailey Roberts and Anna Perez; and 7th graders Nicole Blick, Santana Reeves and Caitlin Jacobs were chosen cheerleaders at SBJH tryouts for the 2011-12 school year. Due to the Chieftains play at the state basketball tournament where they finished 4th, SBHS cheer tryouts were postponed until Friday, March 25 at 12:30. School dismisses that day at 1 p.m. In Hoops for Heart, 4th-6th graders raised $2,881.26. Kansas Relay for Life made a presentation for 7-12 students, encouraging them to participate in the Barber County Relay for Life. The state group commended Kiowa’s Pistol Packin’ Mamas for their “outstanding contributions and volunteerism,” Gillig said. At the HOP League Academic Contest and PCC Academic Days, junior Jace Thurman placed first in English II and Lane Hess was first in Biology I. Others making the Top Five were: Daniel Lambert, 3rd in Ag Mechanics; Kendall Clark, 4th in Agronomy; and Mikala Gillig, 4th in Algebra II. South Barber won 4th as a team. During National FFA Week, SB hosted their 44th Annual Livestock Judging Contest with 185 participants from 12 schools. SB Freshmen placed 1st.

Jet man gets arrested after stopping argument

Charged with domestic abuse

By Jim Stout A Jet man was arrested on domestic violence charges after being sent March 6 to intercede in an argument between two of his stepchildren. Deputy Brandon Powell was

dispatched to investigate a report from Shannon McKenna that her stepfather, Walter Ioerger, had assaulted her, according to Alfalfa County Court affidavit filed March 7. Ioerger told Powell that Shannon and her brother, Shane Phillips, had been arguing and his wife called him to resolve the issue. He confronted

Shannon and she became very agitated, Ioerger told Powell, and he then shoved her onto the bed and held her down by the wrist until she screamed she wanted to call the police. Shannon told Powell that she “had been harassing my brother in a joking way and hitting him across the face with a sock.” He got very upset and the two argued, the document states, so she went for a walk. When she returned, Ioerger came to the house and began to lecture her, so she told him to “f___ off,” the document states, and he slapped her and knocked her onto the bed and held her there until she screamed that she wanted to call the police. Powell photographed wounds on her face and wrists, the document states, then arrested Ioerger for domestic abuse and transported him to the Alfalfa County jail.

Alfalfa commissioners to fight capitol for fairer road funding By Roger McKenzie Alfalfa County Commissioner Chad Roach has been fighting a losing battle for county road funding for several years as he has watched county road funds dwindle for Alfalfa County and other less populated counties. He renewed that effort at Monday’s Alfalfa County commissioner’s meeting by asking his fellow commissioners to accompany him to Oklahoma City to urge the legislature to change the way revenues for county roads are allocated. “If we don’t start fighting (harder) now, in five or ten years, we will be reducing services,” he said, adding a warning that “This will be a long, hard fight, and one we won’t be popular for.” That’s because it will pit county versus county. Currently, the biggest determinator is the county population. A much smaller determinator is the number of miles of road maintained by the county. The embattled commissioner thinks the ratio currently used should be reversed or at least shifted to make miles maintained more important than they currently are in determining how much road money counties get. He knows this won’t make him or Alfalfa County popular among the more populated counties because it will decrease their share of road funds, but he has watched in the past as Alfalfa County’s road funds have been decreased as more money goes to counties with

rising populations. The recently completed census figures will start a new round of changes in July. That concerns Roach because Alfalfa County’s population has decreased. It will lose road money to the counties that have gained population because of the system currently in place. The problem is the large number of road miles that the county maintains has not decreased. “We have twice the road miles of some counties,” Roach said. The result is less money to take care of the same roads year after year. The problem is on-going and will get worse. Even if Alfalfa County does not lose population, its road money will continue to decrease as other counties post everincreasing population numbers and thus take a larger share of the road pie from those counties with decreasing or stable populations. “Their growth is hurting actually hurting us worse than our population drop,” Roach explained. Another factor is the rising price of gasoline and diesel. Tax on these fuels makes up the majority of road revenues available to counties. Gross production revenues and special fuel taxes provide lesser amounts of revenue to the road fund pie. As fuel prices go up, people drive less which reduces the revenue from the fuel tax. Gross production revenues in Alfalfa County are rising, but Roach noted that the road money from that source goes into the state road pie. It means that Oklahoma County and other more populated counties get more of the Alfalfa County’s gross production revenues (for roads) than Alfalfa County

does. To make the discrepancy even worse, Roach pointed out that the larger populated counties get more help in maintaining roads than low population counties like Alfalfa County gets. To illustrate, he noted that Alfalfa County has 1,342 miles of road it maintains. Much of those roads are dirt roads, which require frequent maintenance, especially when it rains. The maintenance, in addition to the road surface itself, also includes cutting ditches and mowing grass. Alfalfa County has 37 employees in its three districts to do all its work, including maintaining roads. Oklahoma County gets much more of the road fund pie thanks to its much larger populations. However, according to the website for Oklahoma County’s District 1, Commissioner Wilma Johnson has 241 miles of road to maintain—about 41 percent of roads maintained by Oklahoma County. That would put the total miles of county maintained road at about 588 miles, or about 44 percent of Alfalfa County’s total. The rest of the roads in Oklahoma County are maintained by the state or the U.S. Department of Transportation. Roach’s Alfalfa County district has approximately 500 miles of road to maintain—more than twice as much as Johnson’s 241 miles. According to Roach, when Commissioner Johnson took office she had 55 employees in District 1. That is a work force more than five times the 10 employees that Roach directs. Thus, Johnson maintains half as much road with five times as many employees as Roach. The discrepancy will widen in July when the new census figures take effect. Ironically, even Commissioner Johnson appears to be affected by the unfair funding ratio. On the District I website, she notes, “It is interesting to note that while we maintain approximately 41% of the county’s road miles, we receive only 33% of the available funding.” Alfalfa County commissioners Doug Murrow and Ray Walker agreed to go with Roach to the state capitol and present their cause to legislators.

Tax injection helps Kiowa Hospital Manor receives award

By Yvonne Miller An injection of tax money in late January helped the financial picture of Kiowa’s District Hospital. An award to the manor by state surveyors based on improvements is encouraging to all. As reported last week in the Newsgram, builders and architects made a presentation to the board regarding renovation of the existing hospital or building new. This was at the hospital board’s February meeting that was postponed until early March. The board’s March meeting will be held the 24th. Hospital Administrator Alden “Van” Vandeveer assumed administrator duties at the manor also as reported in the Newsgram. He happily told the board the manor received an award of excellence for how the staff turned around the facility. He said the award is based upon improvements made from earlier surveys that had numerous violations. Van credits DON Nicole Tronsgard and her staff for making the improvements. The manor’s patient census as of March 3 was 28. Van said the manor has a waiting list, but can’t accommodate because of private room availability requests, etc. In summarizing the manor’s January business, Van said revenue was down approximately $5,000. Total operating

expenses were down approximately $4,200. Agency increased approximately $3,200. The overall result is a loss of $24,847.88. That’s with the addition of $5,101.39 tax revenue. The manor’s January balance sheet shows total assets and liabilities of $432,296.98. Van desrcribed the new patient call system at the manor as “marvelous.” Manor employees said the silent system is “the best thing since sliced bread.” Hospital Statistics and Financials CFO Robin Lewis said that January was a “busy month.” Total admissions were 24 (12 acute, five swingbed and seven observation). Total patient days of care was 57. Outpatient visits totaled 609. Therapy visits increased by 32 from the previous year and clinic visits were up 71. Total operating revenue was $218,989.86. Total operating expenses were $282,421.45. This showed a loss of $64,238.54. District tax money of approximately $62,000 and $66,400 of tax credit revenue, makes the hospital revenue in excess of expenses $63,984.60. For January, hospital cash is up $528,630.69, due mainly to the tax injection in late January, Lewis said. Total cash was $1,094,938.70. The hospital’s total assets were $1,781,021.69 at the end of January. Tax credit money received has already purchased a freezer and scales for the nursing home. Plans are to purchase new beds and more. Board president Zack Odell thanked everyone who donated to the tax credit program to help make these purchases possible. Other Hospital Business Board approved a purchase not to exceed $3,000 to build a supply distribution office. Purchases of a new phone system for the manor, range, range hood and more were discussed. A three-year manor capital improvement budget was approved. Hospital DON Karla Johnston reported on how wellreceived new 19 year RN Dale Rebarchik is at the hospital. A purchase of new recliners for the hospital with memorial money was approved. The purchase is not to exceed just over $2,000. Also approved was a purchase of approximately $2,000 for a new battery for the hospital’s defibrillator. Van confirmed they are in the planning stages for an outreach clinic at Sharon. The clinic will most likely be in service by late summer.

From Page 46 Freedom High School hosts spring blood drive Real Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) and Freedom High School are partnering in a community blood drive 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 22. All healthy adults, 16 and older*, are encouraged to donate blood at 701 Eagle Pass, to save the lives of those in our community hospitals. Donors at this drive can also support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by forgoing the t-shirt offered in appreciation for giving blood. In turn, Oklahoma Blood Institute will make a monetary donation of similar value to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It’s a chance to ‘doubly give’ for Oklahomans with these blood disorders… through the gift of lifesaving blood… and support of research and treatment initiatives. All blood donors in March will also receive free health screenings and Donor Rewards Points. “This month- especially with Spring

Break – fewer people typically donate,” said John Armitage, Oklahoma Blood Institute president and CEO. “But the blood needs for patients in our local hospitals remains.” Although all blood types are needed to maintain OBI’s typical 3-day supply, those with O-negative type blood are especially encouraged to donate. According to the American Association of Blood Banks, those with O-negative blood type make up only nine percent of the national population. However, O-negative blood can be used by anyone in an emergency situation, regardless of their type. Blood donations can be made every 56 days. Oklahoma Blood Institute is the ninth largest, non-profit blood center in America, providing every drop of blood needed by patients in 150 medical facilities across Oklahoma, including Share Medical Center.
