Attempt to remove tree limb results in domestic assault and battery charge By Marione Martin On Sept. 15, Alfalfa County Deputy Blake Trekell was dispatched to near McWillie for a domestic situation. When he arrived at the William and Cassandra Oakes residence, he saw Cassandra sitting in a red pickup. She exited the pickup, and they talked in the front yard. According to Trekell’s affidavit in the case, Cassandra told him that a tree limb had fallen on power lines running into their trailer house. She said they went outside to attempt to drag the limb off the lines with a pickup, as it was too large to remove by hand. She drove the pickup around to the back yard and be-

gan backing up to the limb, trying to follow William’s instructions. She was having a hard time getting the pickup in the position William wanted. She said he grew angry and began hollering and yelling at her. She got out of the pickup and walked toward him, pleading with him to stop hollering at her and calm down. She said he continued to holler at her and threw the tow strap at her head which she dodged. He then walked toward her and shoved her. She said she was in fear of being physically harmed, so slapped him across the face and tried to flee. He grabbed her by the hair as she moved away and pulled her backward into his body and began smashing her face with his left hand, bending her glasses and knocking them off her face. As he smashed the back of her head into his chest, he placed his right forearm across her neck and began applying a large amount of pressure, strangling her and cutting off her supply of air. Cassandra said she struggled and attempted to free herself but was unable to escape. She said she started to black out and thought “this is it.” Cassandra said she got weak and limp and her knees buckled causing her to fall to the ground after she nearly passed out. She said William let go, and when she hit the ground she curled up

so William couldn’t grab her. She said William shoved her one more time, then walked away to get his pickup. She then picked up her glasses and straightened them so she could see; she went back to her pickup and locked herself in it for fear of being around William. Trekell stated he could see red marks and light bruising on Cassandra’s neck that appeared to be from pressure applied to the front of her neck. He had her run her fingers through her hair, and she pulled out a large amount of loose hair. Deputy Trekell went into the trailer to speak with William and get his version of events. He said they got into a verbal argument over Cassandra’s inability to back the pickup to the branch. Trekell stated their stories were similar but William did not say anything about having a hold on her neck although he mentioned Cassandra slapping him. Trekell asked if William ever had his left arm around her neck and he admitted he did. William wrote in a statement, “I grab her around the neck from behind with my arm so she cannot hit me anymore. I ask her if this is how she wants to do this (fight and argue) I get no reply so I continue to hold her until she goes down to her knees. I then feel comfortSee Charge Page 4

Alfalfa commissioners approve budget, bridge items By Roger McKenzie The 2012-13 Alfalfa County budget is a bit confusing, as witnessed by Monday’s (Sept. 24) meeting of the Alfalfa County commissioners. They approved that budget, which now goes to the excise board for final approval, as well as several bridge items that bode well for the county’s aggressive bridge building program. In all, the estimate of needs approved by the commissioners Monday totals $3,421,020.78. That total is based primarily on sales tax, property taxes, and fund balance carryover. It does not include some miscellaneous sources of revenue, which could be as high as $1,000,000.00, which makes it a conservative estimate. However, some confusion has crept in because of terminology. Budget maker Buddy Carroll, as he was called at Monday’s meeting, presented the final totals for approval. When asked, he confirmed that the county’s estimate of needs and its budget are essentially the same thing. However, the county commissioners will tell you that the county budget, which is also listed as an estimate of needs in the document approved

Monday, is $1,984,994.33. And so it is, because that is all they intend to spend. The rest, $1,584,994.33, is actually part of the budget, but it is sitting in an account called “contingency.” This amount is not meant to be spent, which makes the budget even more conservative. But it is there, and available in an extreme emergency. The budget is an increase of about $500,000 over last year’s budget of nearly $1.5 million. It includes raises of $200 per month for the county’s administrative deputies. They will make $29,100 under the new budget. Sheriff’s deputies who carry guns and enforce the law will have their salaries raised to $32,000. The commissioners and the other officers of the courthouse are not getting raises. The budget approved Monday is for the courthouse and its employees only. Roads and bridges, for instance, are not part of this budget. In arriving at the estimate of needs total, Carroll started with a carry over of just over $900,000 from the previous year and included the sales tax and ad valorem revenue estimate of $2.6 million, to arrive at the total revenues he called “available for appropriation.” He noted

that the revenue estimate is up $1.7 million over the previous year, reflecting the oil and gas boom that the county is undergoing. However, he cautioned the commissioners to stay the conservative course they have been on, and they took his advice. Some of the increases requested inSee Approve Page 30

Gross production decline, new technology, budget occupies FISD board By Roger McKenzie Freedom’s school board members were given a lot of new things to consider, and a new budget was passed Monday at the school’s monthly meeting on Monday. Only three board members were present. In his administrator’s report, Superintendent Danny McCuiston gave the board the bad news that district revenue was trending downward. He also spoke to them about possibly putting a tablet into the hands of each student. He told the board, that in the first two months of the school year, compared to a year ago at this time, revenue was down almost $29,000. Most of that decrease — about $27,000 — can be attributed to a decrease in gross production revenue, he explained. He noted that two years ago, the estimate of gross production revenue was significantly exceeded by actual revenue. Last year’s estimate was not met, however. Based on what he discovered so far this year, the estimate of gross production revenue has been reduced from $151,000 to $110,000 for the total school year of 2012-13. That lowered estimate was calculated into the district’s estimate of needs, which was approved later in the meeting. McCuiston also introduced the board to a possible big technology change. He wanted to see if the board was interested in some technology he learned about when the people who make the school’s Promethean boards came to do some teacher training. The company makes

Promethean tables, which are aimed at lower grade students. The tables provide a large 46-inch screen in a table that can be simultaneously accessed by up to six students who collaboratively work on projects together. If adopted, the table would be used for pre-k through second grade. The superintendent also talked about putting a Kuno tablet into the hands of all students from the third grade up. These tablets, he said, have fewer management problems (web surfing, viruses, etc.) than other products, including I-Pads, because the content on them is controlled by teachers. “There are many ways to fund this to our advantage,” McCuiston told the board. The board agreed this was something the district might want to pursue. A more formal presentation will be presented at the October meeting. McCuiston also told the board he has been contacted by people involved in a county-wide effort to establish tobacco free zones. “I’m more than willing to carry on with this, if this is something the board wants to entertain,” he said. Principal’s report In his report, Principal Brett Hill presented testing results which showed the district’s students are doing well in science and math, but not as well in English and reading. He said the teachers are working to address those areas of weakness. As a point of pride, he noted that as

far as he could ascertain, the district now has its first AP student. The student is taking Advanced Placement Psychology. Hill also said he’s looking into a couple of programs for elementary students. One, called Watch DOGS, involves dad volunteers periodically working with students. Another program mentioned was called Peace Builder. Three new students have increased the district’s total enrollment to 73, he noted. He also said he has created a Facebook page for the district, to provide news and updates to all of its “friends.” He said he will manage the page, which is called Freedom OK Eagles. Estimate of needs approved The school’s estimate of needs, which is basically its budget, was presented and approved. It will now go to the county excise board for final approval. The estimate of needs total is $1.79 million, up from last year’s total of $1.67 million. Because of declining revenue, however, McCuiston told the board that the district will end up eating into its carryover amount. Th carry over last year was up $100,000 to about $700,000. That increase in carryover is basically the difference between last year’s budget and this year’s. Other business In other business, the board members: • approved a $15,000 loan from the General Fund to the Child Nutrition fund for the 2012-13 school year. This apparently has been necessary in the past, but Supt. McCuiston said that he hoped to get to a point where it won’t be needed. If there is any money left over in the Child Nutrition Fund at the end of the year, it will go back to the General Fund. This past June, in the last meeting of the prior school year, a supplemental appropriation of $9,341.62 was added to the Child Nutrition Fund to allow it to finish out the year in the black. • approved a transfer of $2,421 from the Building Fund to the General Fund. The move is a payback of funds expended from the General Fund to pay for concrete and some labor on the school’s new greenhouse. Payment from the General Fund was apparently not allowed. The transfer fixes that error. See Freedom Page 10

New small camera I really like By Lynn L. Martin A daily email I receive is headlines from the New York Times. It is similar to the eBurst sent out at 2:15 a.m. each morning by the Review-Courier web site. Anyway, I was surprised to see a camera review in the NY Times. They NEVER review cameras that I’ve ever seen. The headline touted a new pocket-size Sony camera with a 1” inch sensor. I always carry a small digital camera on my belt. I’m in the photography business two ways, the newspaper and the studio, so it is a logical choice. I have long preferred the Canon Elph series because they work well and, most importantly, it has both the LCD viewfinder AND an optical viewfinder. Many times in bright sunlight, I am unable to figure out what I’m seeing with the LCD viewfinder. In the digital course I teach at the NW Career Tech, one of the strong pieces of advice I tell students is to ALWAYS buy a camera with both types of viewfinders. That’s getting difficult as camera makers are in a race to see who can make the largest LCD viewfinder to brag about. Often, the little tiny hole for the optical viewfinder is kicked off. Usually, you now have to pay $100 more to get a small pocket-able camera with both types. Well, horror of horrors, this Sony Rx100 has ONLY the LCD viewfinder. However, the mind boggling feature it provides was the reason for the NYT article . . . it has a 1” sensor. That is HUGE. Most of the small digital cameras have ¼ or 1/3 inch sensors. An actual one-inch sensor is a game changer in sharpness. My pro-level Canon EOS cameras have a 1.25 inch sensor and some of them cost around $8,000 to get that sharpness. This Sony is $650. Since my carry-around Elph is going on three-years of age and does only half-frame video, I decided to order the Sony and retire the Elph. The RX100 is an amazing camera. It actually produces

sharper images than my high-dollar EOS camera. It also has terrific HiDef video that is noticeably sharper than my $1400 Canon HD cameras we use for weddings. So over all, the camera is superior in image quality to my $8K still camera and my $1.4k HD camera, and yet only costs $650.00. The absence of the optical viewfinder is a big problem. This camera is just as bad as the others that depend solely on the big LCD back-of-camera viewfinder. I’ve been in situations where I could not tell what I was actually shooting. This week, I ordered an after-market $10 flip-up hood that you can affix to the back of the camera to shield the LCD from bright light. We’ll see if that solves the problem. I remember the olden days when I used a 4 x 5 Speed Graphic press camera for outdoor shots and you tried to view the upside down image on a ground glass. Even with a flip-up shade, it made for very difficult focusing. Quoting from one-review: “Despite the large sensor, the RX100 is still pocketable. It’s not the smallest compact camera on the See Says Page 10

market, but it’ll fit in breast pocket of a jacket, making it a genuine carry-around second camera for DSLR owners. In principle, at least, the RX100 shouldn’t present the same image-quality compromise that switching across to one of the existing compact cameras would.” Here are the specs on the camera: • 1” Exmor CMOS sensor • 20.9 million effective pixels • 28-100mm (equiv), f/1.8-4.9 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with ‘Advanced Aspherical’ element • Steady-Shot image stabilization • Contrast-detection AF with 25 points, including tracking and flexible

• 1080 60p video (AVCHD) with MP4 option • Built-in stereo microphone • 330-shot battery life (CIPA) I’m not trying to “sell” this camera to anyone. But folks all the time ask me what camera I would recommend. Right now this is my favorite. I’ve always wondered, if I took an overseas vacation which camera would I take with me? Would it be my big professional models with two or three lenses which present considerable weight issues, or a little point and shoot model? Well, at the present time, it would be this new Sony Rx-100.

• approved hiring School in Sites to provide web hosting to the district. The new web host will provide a more professional site structure for the district. Cost for the remainder of the year is $1,000. Next year, it is anticipated the district will be able to use E-rate funding to lower that amount. The current website was created by Brian Webber. Board member Shane Morris expressed concern that the current site is not updated regularly. He indicated he would not like that to happen with the new site when it is up and running. • approved spending $4,726.39 to replace the codex (a piece of equipment)

for the district’s distance learning equipment. The system was operating with limited capability, and this will bring it back and make the distance learning it allows to be interactive again. Currently, only one student uses the equipment, but Supt. McCuiston said more students will be encouraged to take advantage of this resource. • took no action on allowing a student’s successful performance on the Work Keys test to be counted as satisfactory performance on the district’s Comprehensive Local Education Plan (CLEP), even though the student failed Algebra I. Supt. McCuiston told the board that the Work Keys test is an acceptable alternate test for the Algebra I End of Instruction Test. The board wanted more information which will be presented at a future meeting. • approved adding an additional hour

to the contracts of nutrition workers Norma Mullins and Jovita Rhoads. They were hired at seven hours a day. They will now be hired at eight hours a day. The superintendent said the extra hour was needed to help them complete paperwork. • approved appointments to the district’s various committees. • approved the district’s basketball schedule for the year. • reviewed and approved an upcoming trip by the Freedom FFA Chapter to Indianapolis to attend the national FFA convention. Eight students and two sponsors, and possibly some parents, will make the trip in October. • approved the consent agenda, which includes minutes, activity fund expenditures, and expenditures for the general, building, and child nutrition funds.

Kiowa City Council – resignation, zoning, roofing and theater projects approved Fall Cleanup Days October 4 and 11 By Yvonne Miller The September meeting of Kiowa’s City Council exceeded four hours with a 29-item agenda, some of which were routine items. Many items were discussed at length and then tabled. There was considerable council action regarding: repair of hail-damaged roofs; zoning approval for new hospital and rental guest house lodging; several police department items; Chief Theater projector service contract; and more. Mayor Brandon Farney conducted the meeting with councilmen Bill Watson, Brian Hill, Russel Molz, Brandon Poland and Mark Lambert. Also present were: City Administrator Nathan Law, City Clerk Marlo Rugg and City Attorney Laurel McClellan. Hail-damaged Roof Bids Council spent well over 30 minutes discussing the 12 bids received to replace city building roofs that were haildamaged in the spring. Council members debated about whether to go with one general contractor for all the roofs, or break them up as to roof type. They also debated whether to go with a local roofer or one with the best price. Council voted to go with Integrity Home Solutions of Wichita, who had representatives at the meeting. Integrity will do all the city’s hail-damaged roofs at a cost of $56,406.18, plus an additional $2,724 for upgrades. Hill made the motion, seconded by Molz. Poland voted with them. Prior to that vote Lambert moved to go with Landwehr Roofing of Sharon, who also had a representative at the meeting. The motion died for lack of a second. Zoning Changes for Lodging and New Hospital Law said the Planning Commission met August 22, recommending unanimously that council approve two different items. One of those is council approval of Ordinance No. 398 that gives a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for Craig and Leesa Mott. This is so they can use their property at 209 S. 6th in Kiowa for rental guest house lodging. This allows the

Motts to rent rooms in the house on a nightly basis. The other council-approved document is Ordinance No. 399. The ordinance allows a zoning change for the Kiowa District Hospital’s property on south 4th Street, where they plan a groundbreaking for a new hospital Thursday, October 18 from 11 a.m., to 1 p.m. The ordinance changes the property zoning from single family residential to a general commercial office district. During the meeting, council met in executive session near 30 minutes to discuss city utilities access and a possible contract at the new hospital location. Joining them in the executive session were: Hospital CEO Aldeen “Van” Vandeveer; Hospital Board member Bob Stark; and Roger Robison. No action was taken regarding this issue upon return to open session. Law provided some background on the new hospital site. He said the site does not have adequate utilities to serve their needs. This includes electric, water and sewer. Law listed the following estimated utility costs: electric, $130,000; water, $160,000; and sewer (unknown at the time of the meeting). Police Resignation and Items At the end of the meeting, Mayor Farney read a letter of resignation from Police Officer Ryan Laney. The officer wrote it was “with a heavy heart” that he submitted his resignation. Council members expressed that they hate to see Officer Laney leave Kiowa. “He is taking a job to better himself,” the mayor said. With Laney’s absence, council agreed to advertise for a new officer. • Law and Police Chief Steven Johnson reported prices of purchased and sold firearms for the police department. This summer Chief Johnson sold two Glock 18s for $1600 and a Glock 17 for $275 (requested purchase by an officer) for a total sale of $1875. The purchase of new regular guns was $1674; ammunition $255; and holsters, $179.97. The total purchase was $2,108.97 The difference of the sale and purchase was $233.97 which was paid from the police VIN fund.

• Council approved a $15,500 spending cap for Chief Johnson to seek a replacement vehicle for the department. • To update the police department’s outdated repeater system (since the county’s conversion to digital), council approved a 100 Watt Repeater and all necessary supplementary equipment at a cost of $11,955.91. This will be paid from the equipment reserve fund. Law said Shell Oil is working to get a $12,000 grant for the project. More Council-approved Business • With a new digital projector at the Chief Theater, a service contract is required. Council approved a contract with Sonic Equipment for preventative maintenance at $30 per month. The cost will be paid in part from money budgeted in the special recreation fund and from capital improvement. • Law requested that council have him seek quotes for Managed IT services for city computers.

Kiowa Hospital financial records, prep for ground breaking discussed by board By Yvonne Miller The Kiowa District Hospital Board met for their September meeting Thursday evening at the manor. President Zack Odell presided over the meeting with board members Dan Lukins, Lori Schrock, Robert Armbruster and Robert Stark. Also at the board table were: CEO Aldeen “Van” Vandeveer; CFO Janell Goodno; and PR/Marketing Director Brenna May. Because of problems with the federally-mandated conversion to Electronic Health Records, the CFO has not been able to provide hospital and manor financial figures at the last two monthly meetings. Nextgen is the provider of the Electronic Health Records software. Goodno said the biggest problem with Nextgen is “the lack of training.”She said it’s getting somewhat better. Van told the board the hospital has 10 days to go until they test the electronic health records with Medicare. Goodno had financial reports for June and July, but not August at the meeting. The hospital’s June financials showed a loss of $89,584. How-

ever, Goodno said that amount should have been basically split between June and July. The loss shown for July was $945. The July financial report showed that year-to-date the hospital is in the black $1,195. At the end of July, the hospital had $210,479 cash on hand; net patients accounts receivable of $909,865. Total assets of the hospital and manor were listed at $2,618,433. The board approved bad debts of $19,090.50. Goodno gave August hospital statistics. Those reveal some positive figures. Such as the clinic having 406 clinic visits which is the second busiest month of the year. Acute days of hospital care totaled 29, which is the second busiest of the year. Total days of acute and swingbed care are 36. The August financials came to Goodno after the board meeting. The board will approve them at the next meeting. “The August financials look much better than June and July,” Goodno told the Newsgram. For June the manor showed a loss of $31,708. For July that loss was

$9,808. At the end of July the manor’s loss year-to-date was $237,769. The manor’s resident census increased by one to 24 residents in August. That is 66.7 percent of capacity. CEO Van Reports Van updated the board on his and Stark’s attendance at Kiowa’s City Council September meeting to discuss utility access for the hospital’s new site at the south end of Kiowa. As reported in the city council article, costs are higher than expected. For instance, updating the size of the transformer will cost $130,000 instead of $105,000 as first projected. Other costs include: gas and sewer lines; asphalt costs for pavement, etc. The city council took no action regarding the utilities the night of their meeting, so no details are yet finalized. Van said he’s in touch with Eagle Med to get their input regarding details of the helipad at the new hospital. The CEO told of a requirement from the USDA, since the hospital received a loan from that government entity to help build the new facility. So the board approved a one-year contract with TKHLS Architecture of Wichita to perform the required site inspection. The cost is $15,000 plus travel expenses. DON introduced and Other Business The newly hired Director of Nurses at the hospital attended the meeting. The board welcomed Tammy Blake as she was introduced. – May updated the board about details for the Thursday, October 18 groundbreaking at the new hospital. A light lunch will be served and a few speakers will address the crowd during the event set for 11a.m., to 1 p.m. The board will hold their October board meeting that same evening at 7 p.m. That meeting will be at the hospital. They plan to alternate meeting at the hospital and manor every other month. – Following an executive session, the board approved the monthly Risk Management/Quality Assurance report.

cluded $118,000 for the sheriff’s department; $100,000 in courthouse contingency; $36,000 for the County Clerk; and $16,000 for the election board. Bridge items Most of the rest of the meeting was taken up with the county’s five year bridge program and county programming resolutions that put nine bridges into the schedule for construction. Four are to be built by the county in 2013, and six bridges will be built from 2014 through 2017 in the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) program, using cross town beams from the I-40 Cross Town revitalization in Oklahoma City. Alfalfa County has the fourth highest total of bridges in Oklahoma. The five year bridge plan is an on-going program to repair or replace bridges. It is renewed each year. It lists money available and bridge projects in several different bridge categories, depending on who builds them and where the money comes from. Contrary to what many believe, the county’s bridge money is not impacted by increased sales tax revenues. On the contrary, Alfalfa commissioners say that the revenue for bridges is down about $50,000 from a year ago. The plan includes a total of about 38 bridges, with the nine bridges mentioned

above scheduled for completion (replacement) in 2013. Part of the ongoing plan has included replacement of all the county’s pony truss bridges. From 24, the county is down to just six such bridges. In addition to the plan, the county’s District 2 has repaired or replaced three bridges using its own funds. In another bridge item, commissioners approved an Interstate 40 Cross Town steel beam transfer form that allows the pickup of five of the over 80-feet long beams from that source. The beams will be used on a bridge northwest of Burlington. Other business Eleven road crossing permits, totaling $29,500 in fees was approved. District 1 had seven permits ($24,750). District 2 totaled three permits ($3,000). District 3 had one permit ($1,750). The commissioners signed a mineral lease with a Chesapeake company for 0.6 acre the county owns in a bridge right-ofway. The lease compensates the county with a signing bonus of $750 per acre and a one-eighth royalty on any discovery made. Alfalfa County EMS is seeking new and/or retrofitted ambulances. The commissioners approved seeking bids on them. Also approved was a request to put handrails along the outside walls along the stairs in the courthouse. Finally, the commissioners approved minutes of their previous meeting, maintenance and operations warrants, and blanket purchase orders.

Nine bogus checks total over $1100

L to R- Gerald Cook, Charlotte Ringer from the Bunkhouse B & B and Dale Lindstrom

Walking with L and C Two hikers are walking all the Scenic byways in Kansas: 1220 miles — 13 walks — 11 Kansas Byways — 10 months. David Lindstrom is a Johnson County Commissioner and was a San Diego Charger for one year before coming to the Kansas City Chiefs, where he played and retired. He is a member of the KC Chiefs Ambassadors. Dr. Gerald Cook is president of the Overland Park Convention and Visitors Bureau; and is involved in many civic causes. The pair was delighted with the walk from Coldwater, Kansas to Medicine Lodge, Kansas, along the Gypsum Hills Scenic Byway. They stayed at the Bunkhouse at Wildfire Ranch Bed and Breakfast located in Medicine Lodge, Kansas. Since they walk early, they skipped breakfast and feel they will have to bring their families back to enjoy the hills, history, and food of the region. Lindstrom and Cook maintain a blog with pictures of their adventures. Follow them at www.walkingwithlandc.com

on local member James Powell of Hardtner, Kansas, a member of Alva Lodge No. 2100, Loyal Order of Moose, was summoned to receive the Pilgrim Degree of Merit, the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a member of the Loyal Order of Moose. The conferral was held in the House of God at Mooseheart, Illinois, on Saturday, June 2, 2012. The degree, currently held by less than one-half of one percent of the members of the fraternity throughout the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Bermuda, is the Order’s ultimate reward for exceptional devotion to the principles and ideals of caring for children and senior members, and is earned only by members who have given years of ‘above-the-call-of-duty’ service to the Loyal Order of Moose and its principle philanthropic endeavors of Mooseheart, a city for children in need, located forty miles west of Chicago, and Moosehaven, a retirement community for senior members, located on the banks of the St. Johns River in Orange Park, Florida. The Pilgrim Degree ceremony, traditionally held on the same day as the Commencement Exercises for Mooseheart High School, is conferred only inside Mooseheart’s House of God, the magnificent multi-denominational cathedral built in 1950.

Alfalfa budget’s estimate of needs up $1.7 million, still conservative By Roger McKenzie County officers in the Alfalfa County Courthouse see the good financial times the county is undergoing, among other things, as a good time to seek raises for their deputies. Each deputy will make a base salary of $29,100 after $200 a month raises were agreed upon this year The raises and other items in the county budget were discussed and a few changes made, during a visit to the Monday (Sept. 17) morning meeting of the Alfalfa County commissioners by budget maker, Charles “Buddy” Carroll. Sheriff Charlie Tucker’s administrative deputies are included in the raise to $29,100, but his deputies who serve and protect, while putting themselves in danger as they enforce the law, will make $32,000, a move that should help keep deputies and perhaps encourage more applications of qualified candidates when there are job openings. The commissioners and the other officers of the courthouse are not getting raises. It should be noted that the budget discussed is for the courthouse and its employees only. For instance, roads and bridges are not included in the estimated total of $3,426.270.78, which is available for appropriation in the current 2012-13 budget now being finalized by Carroll. The total is the amount projected by Carroll and is based primarily on sales tax and ad valorem revenues. The estimate is a conservative one, because it does not include miscellaneous revenue sources,

which could be as high as $1,000,000. “In all reality, you’ve been pretty conservative with your budget,” Carroll said. Carroll started with a carry over of just over $900,000 from the previous year, and included the sales tax and ad valorem revenue estimate of $2.6 million, to arrive at the total he called available for appropriation. He noted that the revenue estimate is up $1.7 million over the previous year, reflecting the oil and gas boom that the county is undergoing. However, he cautioned the commissioners to stay the conservative course they have been on. The commissioners are using just over $1.9 million of the total available for appropriation in their budget. The rest, approximately $1.5 million, will be put into fund, which will not be used except in the event of a large, unexpected contingency that must be dealt with. The original budget requests were submitted during July. Some of the increases requested included $118,000 for the sheriff’s department, $100,000 in courthouse contingency, $36,000 for the County Clerk, and $16,000 for the election board. A lengthy discussion made it appear as if quite a few changes were being made at the meeting. However, in actuality, only a few changes were made Monday, increasing the total courthouse budget by about $10,000. Carroll will return for the Sept. 24 meeting to present a finalized budget.

Brush rig bid After requesting three bids for a brush rig by the Cherokee Fire Department, only one came in. Fortunately, it met the specifications and was acceptable in price by the department. The bid for $78,441, submitted by Blanchet Manufacturing of Harper, Kan., was approved. Road crossing permits The commissioners approved 21 road crossing permit requests totaling $35,250 in fees. District 1 had the lion’s share of the total as it usually does — 12.75 permits and $19,250 in fees. District 2 had 3.25 permits and $13,500 in fees. Five permits and $2,500 in fees, went to District 3. Those fees were the subject of an agenda item brought by Select Energy, which over the past six months has paid an average of $1,700 per permit. The company asked for a reduction in fees or a way to combine fees. The commissioners, with support from the attorney general and local District Attorney Hollis Tharp, indicated bulk fees were not allowed and a reduction in fees was not possible. When asked if a cap on fees was possible, they said they would have to consult with the district attorney. A cap of $2,000 was suggested by the company’s representative. The commissioners pointed out that See Alfalfa Page 46

there were some established ways to reduce fee costs — including providing rock to help repair roads disrupted by the crossings. Courthouse parking In part because of the energy exploration boom going on, courthouse parking is at a premium and is sometimes just not available. The commissioners approved a plan to help alleviate the problem. The south side parking at the courthouse will be designated for courthouse employees. The alley parking behind the courthouse will be divided between courthouse employees and law enforcement personnel. That will leave the north and east side of the court house available for public parking. As soon as signs can be put in place, the new parking plan will take effect. County radios The sheriff made a brief report on county radios. For county personnel who have communication radios, a new

Health insurance deadline A deadline for submitting changes in health insurance to the county clerk was discussed.

Election board In business for the election board, the commissioners approved seeking 12-month bids for ballots and a transfer of money from one account to another.

ka business structures. With her husband Dwight’s help, the buildings were gutted, remodeled, and a new façade was added. The renovation took a year and the clinic opened its doors June 22, 2012. Inside the clinic, one will find chandeliers, sconces, columns, and even unique pieces from the likes of Afghanistan and Peru. Comfort and eye-appeal were two of the doctor’s main goals in designing the facility. The Medical Clinic is home to an inhouse lab, where laboratory tests can be performed while the patient waits. Digital x-ray services are also provided. The staff has been trained in DOT and non-DOT breath alcohol testing, urine drug screens, and even hair sampling. Dr. Hull is a registered medical examiner for DOT physicals, and the staff is able to do all drug and alcohol testing on site or from a mobile unit. The clinic’s hours were set to meet the needs of families and Little Sahara State Park visitors – it is open Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is closed Wednesdays and Thursdays. The Medical Clinic can be found on Facebook and if you like its page, you receive $5 off your first visit. Appointments can be made by calling 580-824-0330. Walk-ins are also accepted. The Hull’s have three children, a musician son, Sage Cook, and two daughters, Hannah Kimbro who doubles as The Medical Clinic’s secretary, and Kelsey Hull, a sophomore at Waynoka High School. Kimbro is the mother of the Hull’s two grandsons.
