Two face charges from domestic altercation By Marione Martin A domestic altercation in Alfalfa County resulted in charges filed against two people. Taylor Joseph Seay, 22, of Aline, has been charged with domestic abuse, a felony. Danielle Louise Mongold, 27, of Aline, has been charged with three misdemeanors: domestic abuse, unlawful possession of paraphernalia and malicious injury to property. According to documents on file, on May 1 about 10:05 p.m. Alfalfa County Sheriff’s Deputy Blake Trekell received a call from dispatch that a van had driven into a trailer house at 121 N. Third St. in Aline. Dispatch also advised that the two parties involved were actively fighting and the deputy was needed there urgently. Trekell arrived about 10:16 p.m. and found a white van facing southeast sitting partially in the yard of the residence and partially in the street. The van was running with the headlights on and the driver’s door was open. The front yard chain link fence and the front porch had been hit, and the structure was damaged. It was difficult to access the front door as the porch rail was shoved in toward the door. Deputy Trekell made contact with Tisha Seay and was shown into the house. Trekell saw Taylor Seay pacing back and forth in the living room. Danielle Mongold was in the living room as well as a juvenile female identified as Mongold’s niece. Mongold had apparent injuries to her face consistent with being involved in an altercation. She had a swollen lip and a large amount of blood behind her right ear. She had several scrapes and bruises about her face and arms. The Alva Review-Courier / Newsgram is published Wednesday by Martin Broadcasting Corp. 620 Choctaw St. Alva, Oklahoma 73717 Lynn L.

Seay was pacing back and forth and hollering that he was going back to prison. Trekell stated that he had dealt with Seay before, and he was aggressive and resistant when Trekell was forced to detain him by handcuffing him. Trekell found an open box cutter knife lying on the floor open. He secured that and several other bladed weapons lying around the house. While looking at the coffee table, Trekell saw two pipes consistent with those used to smoke marijuana. He reached down and picked one up to smell it. Mongold muttered under her breath as he picked it up. Trekell waited in the trailer with all four subjects until Deputy Adam Honeyman arrived. He requested an ambulance for Mongold. Trekell then spoke outside with Tisha Seay who said she was the property owner and allowed her son Taylor and his girlfriend to stay in the house. She said her son called her and said she needed to call the police because he and Mongold had gotten in a fight, and she drove the van into the trailer. Tisha said they came over to her house next door and got into a physical altercation until she stepped between them and broke it up. Trekell asked Taylor Seay to come out and speak with him. Seay said he had been at the house with Mongold’s juvenile niece and was sitting on the couch with his arm around her when Mongold walked in the house. They began fighting. Seay said he never hit her. Trekell asked him about the marijuana pipes, and Seay said they were Mongold’s and that she had smoked it

and he had not. Trekell saw that Seay’s fists had fresh bruising and swelling on them as well as dried blood consistent with having hit someone. He also saw a cut on Seay’s arm that Seay said came from trying to cut himself with the razor blade before the police got there. Trekell then had Mongold step outside to talk. She said she came into the house and found Seay and her niece sitting on the couch with his arm around her. She said that she and her niece had fought. She said the pipes and the marijuana were hers and she used it to calm down. She said when she went to leave, she accidentally got the van in drive instead of reverse. While being escorted to the ambulance, Mongold told her niece who was standing in the doorway, “tell him that me and you got into it, please.” In the ambulance, Trekell told Mongold he was going to find out what happened and she needed to be honest, that as a victim she could be helped. Mongold said Seay had hit her and slammed her against a wall causing her to get a cut on her head that is what caused the blood on her neck behind her ear. She tried to hide the cut by putting her hair over it. The EMT moved her hair back revealing a large cut approximately an inch long. She was transported for medical treatment. Trekell then spoke to Mongold’s niece, a 17 year-old juvenile from Alva. Asked why she was at the residence, the girl said her mother in Alva had kicked her out of the house. The girl said she and Seay had been sitting on the couch when Mongold came home and he had his arm around her. Seay and Mongold got into it and Seay hit her and pushed her several times. She also showed Trekell into the bathroom where she said Mongold lit some coffee filters on fire in an attempt to catch the dwelling on fire. She said she and Seay dumped soap on them to extinguish the flames. The juvenile was transported to her grandmother’s house nearby. Seay was arrested and taken to Share Medical Center for a mental health evaluation and was later transported to Red Rock Hospital in Norman. Mongold was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Enid. Trekell found that Seay has a prior conviction for domestic violence by strangulation from a 2011 incident.

Championships recognized at Alva School Board meeting By Lynn L. Martin The 2012-2013 school year has been filled with high achievement for various departments in Alva High School. The agenda at the May 6 Alva School Board meeting listed Nick Bradt of speech and debate, Ramona Cummings of vocal music and Randy Nation and Jessica Chegwidden of FFA. All but Bradt were present and received a round of applause from the board and administrators present. Of course, several high sports achievements have been accomplished this year. The Goldbugs baseball team is in the state baseball competition this week. It was announced that Joby Allen won state last week in discus. And the Ladybugs basketball team played in the championship game in their class at State Fair Arena. Probably the most startling item came during the Superintendent’s report. The end-of-instruction (EOI) tests mandated by the state are done on-line by computer. The firm the state has hired to conduct those tests (at a $16 million price tag, according to Superintendent Steve Parkhurst) has had considerable technical trouble with their computer servers failing during the middle of tests. This is quite upsetting to students whose graduation or possible scholarships are being affected, as well as to the teachers, who will be evaluated on how well their students do on EOI testing. Parkhurst said this is a state-wide problem with all schools being affected.

(Indeed, at the Cherokee School Board meeting later in the evening, the same problem was mentioned.) The principals gave their reports and said the month was “crazy-busy” with all the awards banquets and special trips. Those students who are moving from one building to another have been given a tour of their future building. Enrollments stand as follows: Washington – 245, Lincoln – 136, Longfellow – 136, Alva Middle School – 213 and Alva High School – 250. Enrollment Now!!!! The elementary schools are enrolling this week and parents are asked to return packets no later than Friday, May 10. If a student moves in during the summer, they are asked to pick up a packet at the school they will attend. Alva Middle School is also enrolling early, a different grade for each night of this week. Washington Principal Tracy Leeper said, “We need to get our estimated numbers in so as to be sure to have enough classroom space. Already we are converting the band room to classroom use and the band will move to the auditorium. Technically, we have run out of space for Pre-K, but of course we’re not going to turn anyone away. We’ll get it done. But knowing in advance helps us hire more teachers if needed.” Parkhurst said the district has quite a bit of carry-over funds and the amount cannot exceed 18 percent of the budget or the state will reduce allocations next year. So the district is going to permit

principals to make recommendations for their buildings. Some classes may receive iPad tablet computers. Handicapped access needs to be improved at Lincoln so all floors are reachable by chair-lift. Personnel Changes Kylee Crocker was introduced to the board and was hired as a certified math teacher for the 2013-2014 school year. The board learned that Julie Wren will be reassigned to the cooperative center at her request. In other certified personnel changes, Duania J. Major is retiring. Jerrad Hada and Brandon Bookout are resigning. Three non-certified employees submitted resignations: Angie Flynt, Mason Lindquist and Mary Herren. The board agreed to a contract with Alcohol and Drug Testing, Inc. The fee per employee for onsite drug testing is $54. Onsite alcohol testing is $34. Mileage will be $75. If an applicant has a positive flag, then a fee of $25 is charged for a Medical Review Officer to go over the results and try to determine why. The standards will be CFR 49 Part 40 and DOT requirements. (Alcohol standard is 0.02.) No Summer Lunch Program The nutrition report showed that an average of 531 lunches were served each day in April and an average of 173 See Board Page 12

Cherokee has blissful board meeting By Lynn L. Martin The person who made up the agenda for the Cherokee Board of Education meeting forgot to create agenda items for the Superintendent’s report and the Elementary Principal’s report. Some in the meeting room teasingly thanked Judy Porter for that blessed relief. Nonetheless, the board observed the State of Oklahoma agenda laws and did not solicit reports from either administrator. The first thing on the agenda was an executive session to discuss hiring a new vo-ag instructor to replace Jeremy Johns. After the meeting, they hired Robbie Maples for the job. Maples is from Okemah and is a recent graduate of Oklahoma State University.

Cherokee Schools vo ag teacher Robbie Maples

Superintendent Cory Ellis presented a plan for an extension of the extra duty stipend schedule. The plan called for a $300 bonus for a coach and $100 for an assistant coach for taking at least five students to other camps during the summer. The limit would be three camps. The bonus would not happen for local camps run by faculty members. The board approved the plan and made sure it included other competitive events such as speech and FFA. The agenda had an entry for any letters of resignation. The superintendent said there were none but the board should be aware that a girl’s coaching position will be open. The board approved a couple of fundraisers. One was called a “Fan Cloth” fundraising, which permits students to sell t-shirts and similar items in advance so there is no wasted inventory. The other was a Cherokee Chiefs boys and girls basketball camp to be led by coaches Matt Guffy and Margo Hamilton. The sessions are for boys and girls entering grades one through eight in the 2013-2014 school year. It will run in the morning from 9 a.m. until noon May 2224. The treasurer made a comparison of sources of revenue to last year. Compared to the same time last year, general fund ad valorem collections are up $98,338,50. The county four mill levy is down $8,002.23. The gross production revenue is up $365,743. The building fund ad valorem is up $14,080.28 and the sinking fund collections are up over last year $107,337. In looking at fund comparisons of

April 2012 vs. April 2013, the general fund for the entire year is up $298,074. The building fund is in the red by $3,536. The sinking fund is up by $101,498. Total funds this year are $1,302,164 compared to same time last year of $876,755.20 The meeting was one of the shortest in recent Cherokee history, running less than an hour.

Jayna Hadwiger has been awarded a scholarship from Farm Credit of Enid to attend Oklahoma State University this fall. She is the daughter of Joe and Gail Hadwiger of Cherokee and a graduate of Alva High School. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic performance, extracurricular participation, work experience and leadership activities. An independent panel of judges selects the winning candidates.

Waynoka Schools making progress on football field By Alex Cole At a regular meeting on Monday, Superintendent Peggy Constien updated the Waynoka School Board members on the status of the football field. She said painting will be completed Friday and the bleachers will be installed Monday. Goal post holes have been dug and the scoreboard will be put up following the installation of the goal posts. “We’re going to have to do some work to the grounds,” said Constien. She said the ground needs to be aerated. This is something that should be done annually but hasn’t been done in about 20 years. She stated, “Some of this is maintenance that should be done at least every other year, if not annually.” Constien said she is reviewing quotes for this project and is hoping to have it completed by the time football season begins. Also in the superintendent’s report was the announcement of upcoming events such as incentive trips, dinner theater, baccalaureate, fun day, awards assemblies and a blood drive. After the superintendent’s report, the board members approved the consent agenda. Following that, student insurance with Cariker School Services, Inc., was approved for the 2013-2014 school year. This insurance is a division of Nationwide Life Insurance Company. Members of the board also approved sending qualifying students and sponsors to the TSA National Competition on June 28 to July 2 in Orlando, Fla. Fundraisers to help pay for the trip were

approved. The use of the facilities for two basketball camps were approved. The camps will take place this month. The renewal of the Memorandum of Agreement with Serve for success/ AmeriCorps for the 2013-2014 school year was approved. When reaching this agenda item, Constien said, “That’s been a very big help for students and teachers, and (Principal Michael) Meriwether and I highly recommend the renewal of that.” Members of the board voted to approve American Fidelity Assurance Company to serve as Waynoka Public School section 125 plan for the 20132014 school year. They also approved an agreement with Clearwater Enterprises to serve as the natural gas supplier to Waynoka Schools. Constien said the agreement saved $5,800 last year. The school board members voted to elect the following as new members to the board of directors of the Oklahoma Public School Investment Interlocal Cooperative: Position 6: Tom Deighan, superintendent of Lawton Public Schools, to a 2013-2016 term. Position 7: Howard Hampton, superintendent of Bishop Public Schools, to a 2013-2016 term. Position 8: Teryy Grissom, superintendent of Asher Public Schools, to a 2013-2016 term. Position 11: Jeff Mills, executive director of the Oklahoma State School

Boards Association, to a 2013-2017 term. Position 14: Willa Jo Fowler, board member of Enid Public Schools, to a 2013-2016 term. Members of the board, along with Constien and Meriwether, convened in executive session to approve the resignation of math teacher Ashley Smart, extend employment for special education teacher Dana Hope during June of 2013, employ certified career teachers and temporary teachers, employ support staff and employ Beau Westfahl as the drivers’ education teacher for the summer of 2013.

Board breakfasts were served each day. Income for the year so far: breakfast/ lunch/milk sales – $103,059, Head Start – $13,990, and federal reimbursement – $144,785. The district is not going to offer a summer lunch program as they did last year. Right now, an effort is being made to come out even on the use of supplies so no items are stored over the summer. The board approved the use of school buses by Bible Baptist Church (to Black Mesa State park), First Baptist Church (to Falls Creek Camp) and the Oklahoma Garden Club (for a trip to Great Salt Plains). All of the users will have to supply a licensed certified bus driver, fuel and certificate of insurance coverage.

cruelty to animals By Marione Martin A Cherokee man is facing a felony charge involving a dog. Raymond A. Knabe, 53, has been charged with cruelty to animals. According to court papers, Cherokee Police Chief David Butler received a call on Jan. 3 about a malnourished puppy found in the vicinity of Sixth and Pennsylvania. The reporting party stated they knew the dog belonged to Knabe and had approached him about the puppy. The individual said Knabe stated that he and his son had a new dog and didn’t want this one anymore. The reporting party took possession of the dog and took her to a vet clinic in Buffalo. The veterinarian stated that the dog was thin and malnourished. Chief Butler talked with Knabe about the dog on Jan. 4. According to Butler, Knabe said neither he nor his son wanted the dog because they had a new dog and he could not afford to feed both. The felony charge was filed on April 30.

Business as usual for Alfalfa County Commissioners By Alex Cole The commissioners of Alfalfa County began a regular meeting on Monday with the approval of minutes, blanket purchase orders and payment warrants. Road crossing permits were also voted for approval. Permits for district one totaled $16,000 and those for district two totaled $17,250. None were submitted for district three. Monthly officer reports and appropriations were approved – there were no

lapsed appropriations. The commissioners reviewed and approved the monthly highway expenditures and the allocation of alcohol beverage tax receipts. Two oil and gas division orders were next on the agenda. Order number 2628-11 and an amended division order 20-28-10 were motioned for approval. Surplus property resolutions were made for a computer, computer monitor, shredder and desk chairs from the

Alfalfa County treasurer’s office. A financial transfer of $8,749.11 from the R-12 contingency to C-2A treasurer’s operating expense was approved, along with a transfer of $160 from the contingency to the U-3 excise board for additional travel not in the budget. After reviewing numerous scanning bids for the Alfalfa County clerk’s office, the commissioners accepted a bid from Midwest Printing Company from Sapulpa.

Foster parents make lasting impact for children TFI Family Services, Inc. (TFI) foster parents Luke and Teresa MacKinney of Kiowa, Kan., have always wanted to be foster parents. Initially Luke was trained as a foster parent when he was single and a youth pastor because he wanted to make sure he was a viable option for any of his youth. Now he and his wife Teresa enjoy the victories and challenges of being foster parents together. “It’s just something we’ve always wanted to do,” MacKinney said. “We want to help kids in a painful situation and hopefully get them back with their family.” MacKinney says the most rewarding part of foster parenting is seeing the kids’ and their families’ progress. “The best part is when there’s a successful reintegration and the kid goes home to a good situation,” MacKinney said. “(It’s great) to see those kids later on and see how well it worked out for them. A moment that stuck out – probably when a previous foster kid called

and told us how they were doing, and told us that everything was going well while living with their dad. Just that they had contacted us again confirmed that we had been an important part of their lives.” Like all foster families, Luke and Teresa went through the PS-MAPP class (Partnering for Safety and Permanence Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting), a 10-week foster parent training course designed to educate prospective families about the children they may have placed in their home. After they finished the course and completed their licensing requirements, TFI paired them with a resource family worker and entered their home into TFI’s child placement matching database. Shortly after, they started to receive calls to place children in their home. For families who are considering fostering, MacKinney says there is no harm in going through the training to determine if fostering is right for a family.

“I would say investigate it, talk to someone that’s doing it, call TFI and start the training process if you feel like it’s something you might want to do,” MacKinney said. “If you’re not sure if you’re ready to jump in with both feet, try respite care. Respite care is desperately needed in this area.” There is a great need for foster families in every community in Kansas. Consider meeting the need for foster families in your community by partnering with the leading provider of foster care homes in the state of Kansas. Call 800-279-9914 or go to www.tfifamilyservices.org to learn more about becoming a TFI licensed foster home in your community.

Dr. Wilhelm contract renewed at Kiowa Hospital Board meeting Two board seats open at annual meeting May 21, Foundation seat open

Questions addressed on cuts and call-back pay

By Yvonne Miller Dr. Paul Wilhelm’s contract was renewed for one year at the April meeting of the Kiowa District Hospital (KDH) Board. Board President Zack Odell presided over the meeting with all members present including Lori Schrock, Bob Stark, Dan Lukins and Robert Armbruster. Others present were: Chief Executive Officer Aldeen “Van” Vandeveer, Chief Financial Officer Janell Goodno, Hospital Director of Nurses (DON) Tammy Blake, Manor DON Nicole Tronsgard and Marketing/PR Director Brenna May. The board tentatively selected May 21 at 6 p.m., for the date of the KDH Annual Meeting to be held at the Masonic Lodge. Two board seats are open and will be voted upon at that meeting. One is held by Schrock who is moving. The other is held by Armbruster who said he does not plan to retain his seat. With Schrock’s move, her seat on the Friends of the Kiowa District Hospital and Manor Foundation is also open and will be acted upon at the board’s regular May meeting, which immediately follows the annual meeting. Goodno said she is still working with auditor John Harris to

finalize the audit, which will be presented at the annual meeting. The board approved the hospital’s tax credit application requesting the purchase of an EKG machine and other equipment. Dirt is now moving as construction begins at the site of the new hospital on the south end of Kiowa, Vandeveer said. Hospital and Manor Statistics and Financials Giving financial reports, Goodno said March was stronger than February. The hospital’s total days of acute and swingbed care were 69 compared to 43 in February. Total clinic visits were 291, compared to 221 in February. Nurse Practitioner Patty McNamar, who earned her doctorate recently, attended the meeting for a while. Due to illness she’s been unable to work at the clinic and hospital the past several months. She’ll undergo surgery in early May. March outpatient visits totaled 357. There were 37 therapy visits (such as physical and occupational therapy), seven surgery/ scope procedures, 37 emergency room visits, 45 X-rays and numerous other tests in radiology such as CT scans and MRIs. The two lab employees had 165 visits and ran 3,064 lab tests. Goodno said hospital/clinic net patient revenue was $248,811. Total operating expenses were $343,686. That made a net loss from operations of $93,705. With the addition of $78,110 mainly tax dollars, the loss was $15,594. The manor’s total operating revenue was $104,772. Operating expenses were $149,838. The addition of $5,000 tax revenue made a loss of $40,016. The average manor resident census for March was 19. Tronsgard told the board that number was up to 21 residents in mid-April and they were expecting another. Goodno reminded the board that the hospital receives all the tax money for the district from the county. The auditor has it set up that way to get the maximum Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements for the district, she said. So the tax money received by the manor each month is usually about $5,000. Then Goodno said the hospital transfers more funds to the manor each month as needed. For example, in January the transfer was $100,000 to pay for expenses like insurance. In April the transfer was $20,000, she said. Year-to-date the overall loss to the hospital and manor is $337,718. The combined balance sheets of the two entities shows that $82,046 is due from Medicare, which Goodno said they’ll receive in July. Uncollected taxes total $435,801. Goodno said the hospital is to receive those tax dollars from the county throughout the remainder of the year. Accounts receivable at the hospital total $940,187 – less allowances of $467,000. That makes total net patient accounts receivable $473,187. Goodno explained that the “allowance” is for the self-pay customers who are considered a potential “writeoff.” The hospital/manor balance sheets show total assets and liabilities of $3,751,466. Questions About Cuts, Overtime and Emergency CallBack Pay Because the hospital is trying to cut costs, they’ve made some changes. When asked See Hospital Page 42 about it by the Newsgram,

Barber County crops some of worst in Kansas

By Yvonne Miller The old-timers in the southern Barber County, Kan., area into the northernmost part of eastern Woods and western Alfalfa counties in Oklahoma can’t remember a year when the majority of wheat planted in the area will not be harvested. “We’ve had severe drought conditions … freeze … hail … one bad thing after another,” O.K. Grain Manager Steve Inslee said of the wheat crops and others, such as canola, in the Kiowa/ Hardtner/Hazelton, Kan., area that the cooperative covers. Their neighbors to the south in Oklahoma around Burlington have also endured some the poor conditions – a big hail storm and recent freezes. Crops just north of Alva and around that area endured the same devastating conditions. Barber County is contributing to Kansas Agricultural Statistics (KAS), which ranks the 2013 Kansas Wheat Crop as the fourth worst in Kansas history at this point in the growing season. In its April 1 Crop Progress Report, KAS rated the 2013 Kansas wheat crop at 2 percent excellent and 29 percent good. Inslee said in his cooperative area, “Already a majority of crops have been released – at least 60 percent.” He said almost no canola survived the conditions.

Although he said final percentages are not yet available, since insurance adjustors are coming back to readjust wheat after the latest freeze. More frigid temperatures are expected later this week. Referring to crop damage, Inslee confirmed that, “Barber County is one of the worst counties in the state of Kansas. They already started talking about that in December. We never had wheat pasture. Most of the old-timers said this is the worst they’ve seen. People are stunned.” Inslee anticipates adjustors to release more crops. Inslee said that naturally, “This is going to hurt. It’s time like this that it shows one of the biggest advantages of O.K. Grain being with CoMark, Inc., because it spreads out our risk (with other cooperatives). Even though we don’t have a wheat crop, other places do have wheat. “Farmers can thank goodness for their crop insurance this year,” Inslee said. “You live in the country that has the cheapest food. That’s why we (farmers) have government-backed crop insurance. Raising a crop is a total risk with Mother Nature and all the expenses involved.” He said the average person has no idea how expensive equipment is to farm

the land and all the other exorbitant costs involved, from fuel to fertilizer. “Farmers never retire, they just keep going until they can’t go anymore,” Inslee said. Effects Just South of the Kansas Border When the Newsgram called the Burlington Co-op to ask Manager Robbie Newman about the damage to crops in that area, he was out of town. So Burlington Co-op’s new agronomist Jenae Settle, who just started April 8, reported. She said a recent hail storm damaged wheat mainly in a path from the north side of Burlington to Driftwood. She said it started “a little over pea size and bigger and really picked up south of Kiowa.” “We’ve still got a good amount of wheat to cut,” Settle said of the Burlington area. “It depends on the amount of freeze damage. We’ll know more later in the week.” She said it’s still too early to know the full extent of the freeze damage. She’s heard reports some places in southern Oklahoma got hit pretty hard. Settle confirmed some crops in the Burlington area have drought damage as well, but some areas got a little rain, which helped. Wheeler Brothers Assistant Manager Alan Nusser said, “The wheat north of Alva is not very good – kind of like Barber County. Lots of it has been turned over to insurance.” Nusser said the wheat south and east of Alva looks good, “except we don’t know the extent of the freeze damage yet. We had a few rains there last summer. A hail swipe went between Alva to north of Dacoma about two miles wide with 40 to 60 percent damage.” Ronnie Truelock, General Manager of the Farmer’s Cooperative in Alva, was unavailable for comment.

Hospital

Goodno answered questions. Vandeveer was out-of-town. Goodno said one way of cutting costs is reducing inventory of supplies and pharmacy. She said overtime must be pre-approved. Also reducing the amount of more costly agency nursing is a priority. Goodno said the use of agency staff especially affects nursing and dietary departments at the manor. The hospital DON Blake has reorganized scheduling at the hospital, Goodno said. She uses a nurse on an as-needed basis and other part-time nursing to eliminate overtime. The lab and X-ray personnel normally work four days per week, Goodno said. Those employees are to receive

time and a half pay for emergency callback. Earlier this spring when those employees received their checks during a particular pay period, they hadn’t received their call-back pay. Naturally this caused a problem. Goodno said there was miscommunication and a human resources position was terminated. She said the hospital had gone to a new payroll system, which was set up incorrectly and the call-back pay was not included. She said the problem was remedied and the employee’s pay was taken care of retroactively. More Hospital Business Vandeveer said a fire marshal inspection at the manor found four violations that were corrected immediately. An industrial power washing machine is reportedly going out at the manor. A quote received for a new one is $7,755. The board took no action. Giving a Hospital/Manor Founda-

tion report, Brenna May said a position is open on the foundation with Lori Schrock moving. A decision to fill the position will be filled at the May board meeting. On a sidenote, May is originally from West, Texas, where many lives were lost, over 100 injured and multiple properties devastated in the fertilizer plant explosion. She said hospital personnel were sending items directly to West to help victims. If members of the public would like to help the people of West whose struggles will be ongoing, they can contact May for suggestions. DON Blake said the hospital is following the Kansas Initiative to be Emergency Stroke Ready. The board reviewed and tabled the Director’s Policy Manual. Following an executive session, besides approving Dr. Wilhelm’s contract, the board approved the monthly Risk Management/Quality Assurance report.
