Train derails northeast of Waynoka By Marione Martin Investigation and clean-up efforts were underway Monday at the site of a train derailment in Woods County. Joe Faust, director of public affairs for Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, said the incident was reported between 11:10 p.m. and 11:15 p.m. Sunday, June 1. The train derailed at the intersection of County Road 340 and Cotton Road northeast of Waynoka. For local emergency responders, it was déjà vu. They responded to another derailment near that location in August 2013. Faust said the cause of the derailment was under investigation. Locals speculated strong wind and heavy rain from a storm around that time could have been a factor. The National Weather Service reported a peak wind gust of 66 mph at 10:05 p.m. seven miles south

southwest of Alva. The train was described as “intermodal.” It was carrying semitype trailers stacked two high on rail cars. One trailer was carrying fireworks,

considered hazardous cargo, and it was compromised, spilling the contents. Faust said it was quickly contained. He said a total of 11 trailers were derailed. No one was injured in the accident.

Lynn Says

Robocall irritations continue to mount By Lynn L. Martin Vicky Hewatt, at the photo studio, keeps her reflexes sharp by seeing how fast she can hangup on robocalls. When the recorded spiel starts, she tells the phone, “I’m not talking to a machine” and then stabs the off button. I am the same way, I’m just not quite as violent about it as she. Robocall technology is only getting more advanced. One firm told the website “Politico” that it can now place one million calls in less than a half-hour. “Some days, we call 10 to 20 percent of the U.S. population,” an executive at the firm said. New Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules that give consumers greater protection against robocalls took effect in October 2013, but the onslaught continues. Advances in technology have made it easy and cheap to send thousands of pre-recorded phone calls per minute using autodialers and fake caller IDs that make tracing hard. The Consumer Reports website asks, “How significant is this issue?” Through the first 11 months of 2013, American consumers had filed 1,837,558 complaints about robocalls

with the FCC. When Consumers Union, the policy and advocacy arm of Consumer Reports, recently invited people to share tales of robocall hell, more than 4,000 responded within a week. Among them was Frank Brill Jr., of Newport News, Va., who reported receiving at least 34 such calls from Dec. 4 through Dec. 12, with pitches ranging from medical alert devices to home-security systems. Listing your phone number with the National Do Not Call Registry can ward off unsolicited calls from legitimate telemarketers, but scam artists don’t care about screening out the more than 220 million phone numbers on that list. Making telemarketing robocalls without the recipient’s written permission has been illegal since 2009, but the new, stricter rules require all robocallers to obtain your consent in writing, by electronic means, or on a voice recording before they can send a robocall or text to your cell phone or home phone. Of course, politicians exempted themselves In the past, robocalls were legal if the firm making them had an established business relationship with you. Now, even those firms are supposed to get permission. The only such calls considered legal are those that aren’t sales-related, such as prerecorded messages about flight changes and those from politicians or tax-exempt nonprofit organizations. The expense of robocall technology is declining so that even local organizations can utilize the service. The Alva Schools pay about $2,400 per year for their robocall service. The schools make very appropriate use of robocalls

alerting patrons when school is cancelled because of snow or when a band trip time is changed. Superintendent Steve Parkhurst said, “This is a very handy way of communicating needed information to parents and we get positive feedback.” He did say in the first year of operation a glitch sometimes occurred when grandparents in Florida might be called instead of the primary number. “The company has worked well with us and we think those problems are fixed,” he said. The City of Alva also uses a robocall service. So far I’ve received calls telling of road closings so I can avoid those intersections when driving. I wish their service could be edited some way. I get three identical calls on the lines at the photo studio, I get three identical calls on the lines at the newspaper and then one at home. When that first happened, I concluded that the announcer, Joe Don Dunham, with seven calls to me, was my new best friend. The city pays about $6.600 per year for their service. Finally, here are some tips for reducing the problem. If you pick up a robocall, hang up immediately. Pressing a number signals that the autodialer has reached a live number and can lead to more calls. • Limit at least some unwanted calls by listing all of your numbers in the Do Not Call registry. Go to or call 888-382-1222 from the number you want to register. • If you have caller ID, record robocallers’ numbers and report them to the FCC via the Do Not Call registry. Your information goes into a database that can help regulators identify the sources of illegal robocalls.

By Lynn L. Martin There were several personnel changes handled by the Alva Board of Education at their June meeting Monday night. Alysson Tucker was named principal at Washington Early Childhood Development Center by a 4-1 vote. Larry Parker, Steve Ellis, Jane McDermott and Tiffany Slater voted “yes” while Lynda Martin voted “no.” Superintendent Steve Parkhurst let Tucker sit in his chair for a while so the board could ask any further get-ac-

quainted questions. Tucker revealed she is a native of Nebraska and a graduate of Pratt (Kan.) High School. She has previously worked for Northwestern Oklahoma State University and has six years experience in the Alva school system as a counselor and PE teacher. In getting her master’s in administration, she accumulated 160 understudy hours with Mr. Argo and Tracie Leeper. In other certified employee action, the board rehired the education co-op employees. The future of the co-op was uncertain when other certified employees were re-hired a couple of months ago. Those hired were: Cherri Pfleider, Becky Castor, Tina Gilreath, Cherie Hurst and Julie Wren. The resignations of two other certified employees were accepted. Magen Paris-Shelton, who is going to return to her previous job at Alva State Bank, and Margaret L. Woodward-Smith, who is going to teach math in the Freedom schools. The board accepted the resignations from non-certified employees Janet Sheik, Barbara Hancock and Elizabeth Lohmann. A leave of absence for one year was granted to Lacey Gaisford. She is expecting a baby in September and wants to be at home for the first year. It was announced that Ladonna Durkee will take the Lincoln school secretary position opened up by the resignation of Janet Sheik. Certified employees resigning their

extra-duty positions were Jaci Heaton from Alva Middle School (AMS) girl’s basketball and track; and Heather Lohmann, AMS girl’s softball and assistant girl’s basketball. A new vote was taken on the lawn-mowing work being done by Dusty Horn in order to straighten out some contract dates. The board accepted the temporary appropriation budget amount from the fiscal year 2014 estimate of needs by accountant Buddy Carroll. The amount is 90 percent of this year’s budget: general fund – $8,312,692, building fund – $723,380, child nutrition fund – $350,427, co-op fund – $533,975, and senior achievement fund – $294,500. Superintendent’s Legislative Report Superintenent Parkhurst mentioned a few changes by the legislature that will affect the district. HB 1623 requires the board to adopt a policy implementing suicide prevention awareness for seventh graders on up. HB 3339 repeals the common core standards and instead will implement a “college readiness” and “go to work” readiness standard. In other changes, home-schooled students will no longer be included in the drop-out statistics of the district. Another change by HB 2526 permits a “power of attorney” guardian for a student for one year and the student will be deemed to reside in the district of the guardian’s address. Parkhurst sees some risk of this enabling athlete recruiting. The district is unhappy with the firm from which they have been leasing school buses. They are dropping their relationship with Midwest Bus Sales for four 71-passenger buses and taking up a similar three-year lease with Ross transportation. While the lease is proposed as having a term of three years, the district has the legal option of cancelling at the end of any fiscal year. The superintendent said Midwest Bus Sales was adept at implementing hidden charges as far as they were concerned. The district attempts to put no more than 15,000 miles per year on a bus in

“How To Train Your Dragon 2” & “22 Jump Street”

A fun event at wedding receptions! A popular bride and groom quiz is seen at many of our Kansas weddings. It works like this, each has a shoe in each hand. One shoe from the groom, and one shoe from the bride. The disk jockey then asks questions and the contest is to see how often the bride and groom agree by both raising a bride’s shoe or both raising a groom’s shoe. Here are a few sample questions: 1. Who has the most speeding tickets? 2. Who is the best cook? 3. Who spends the most time in the bathroom? 4. Who said, “I love you” first? Many times the couple disagree and show it by raising conflicting shoes. When we video-tape your wedding, you get the fun stuff like this. 800-526-1087

Member Lori Schrock was present via Facetime on a large television screen. Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Janell Goodno was present as were several department heads. Interim Hospital Administrator Steve Davis was absent due to illness. The meeting was at the Kiowa Community Building. Several district patrons lingered after the annual meeting to attend this regular meeting.

The next monthly hospital board meeting is Thursday, June 19, 7 p.m., at the hospital lobby. Under new business, Manor Administrator Carla Dunigan said they need a new ice maker. As the existing one broke, Dunigan said they are using six 20 pound bags of ice daily for a cost of $653 per month. The cost of a new ice maker is about $5,600. Goodno said some tax credit money is still available that can be used for the purchase. The board awaits bids and will approve one at a special meeting because of the urgency. In her brief report during open session, Hospital Director of Nurses Heidi Courson said the signage issues with the Emergency Room are corrected. A new sign was installed and another one is coming for the foyer. She also said the Nextgen upgrade went well. Medical staff credentials were approved for Meredith Wooley, MD. At the end of the meeting the board held a second executive session from 9 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. The purpose was to discuss the Risk Management/Quality Assurance (RM/QA) report; non-elected personnel and contract/legal. The only action taken upon return to open session was approval of the monthly RM/QA.

Alfalfa County commissioners approve bid for Burlington blacktop striping By Leslie Nation The Alfalfa County commissioners had a brief meeting at the county courthouse on Monday, June 2, at 10 a.m. Minutes from the previous meeting were approved followed by the M & O warrants and blanket purchase orders. There were five rail road permits inspected and approved during the meeting. After the regular items on the agenda the commissioners continued with the next items by approving the monthly officer reports, monthly highway expenditures, and allocation of alcohol beverage tax totaling $8,102.26. The commissioners then approved the request to remove Theresa Kephart as receiving officer for Carmen Responders and add Sheryl Gahr as receiving officer. Opening bids for striping for Burlington blacktop was the next item on

the agenda, and Chairman Doug Murrow moved to approve Advanced Work Zone’s (Muskogee) bid of $4,603.75. After approving the bid, the commissioners discussed the next item: the interlocal agreement with the City of Cherokee. Board member Chad Roach’s only concern with the agreement is that it was only good until June 30 of this year, which he felt was not enough time for the city to benefit from the agreement. The members discussed it further then amended the date to June Dist. # 1 1 1 2 2


30, 2015. With the amended date, the agreement will be sent back for approval from the city before it can go into effect. The commissioners finished their meeting by approving the cash fund estimate of needs and requests for appropriation before adjourning the meeting. The road crossing revenue is as follows: priation before adjourning the meeting. The road crossing revenue is as follows:

Driver charged with DUI, no license By Marione Martin Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Lisa Jorgensen stopped a pickup because the license plate was not visible. The driver ended up with two charges filed against him in Alfalfa County. Aaron Joseph Zvonek, 31, no address listed, has been charged with a felony of driving under the influence

and a misdemeanor of driving while license is revoked. According to documents on file, Jorgensen stopped the pickup on SH11 approximately two miles north of US-64 on May 27 about 9:52 p.m. When she asked the driver for his license and insurance, Zvonek gave her an Oklahoma ID card and said he did not have a driver’s license. Jorgensen had Zvonek sit in her patrol car. She checked and learned his driver’s license had been revoked. She noticed the odor of alcohol about Zvonek’s person and asked how much

he had to drink. He said he consumed a few beers earlier. Trooper Jorgensen then approached the passenger side of the pickup and had the passenger exit the vehicle. She saw a six pack of cold Bud Light beers with one missing and saw an opened can of Bud Light in the cup holder in the center console. She conducted multiple field sobriety tests on Zvonek. He refused the personal breath test. Zvonek was placed under arrest and transported to the Alfalfa County Jail where he was booked in on his charges.

Suspect charged with felony assault

“Cornfed,” who was later identified as Marty Workman. Holt said Workman punched Grummit in the face, knocking him to the ground. Workman then “speared” Russell to the ground. She said Collins placed his hands around Russell’s neck and held him down as Workman attacked him. When she told them she was calling the police, four individuals fled the bar, two of them being Collins and Workman. Horstman then went to question Russell who said he was at the bar with several people including his wife. He said Holt went to turn on the music and a man in a red shirt, identified later as Collins, groped her. Russell said Holt asked if he would stay longer because she felt uncomfortable. Later Collins slapped a woman on her posterior. Russell told him to knock it off. Words were exchanged and Workman came around the bar and struck Grummit in the face while running, knocking Grummit unconscious on the floor. Workman tackled Russell to the ground. Russell said Workman attempted to knee him in the face once and pinned him against the ground and bar. Workman attempted to knee him in the face a second time but missed. Collins told Workman they needed to go as the police were being called. Horstman asked Russell if he was being choked at any time, but he said if he had been he didn’t notice. Horstman contacted Share Medical Center for information about Grummit’s condition and learned when he arrived he was in critical condition with internal brain bleeding. He was taken by ambulance to St. Mary’s in Enid. Horstman talked to a nurse at St. Mary’s who said Grummit was now stable and reacted to verbal stimuli but was extremely drowsy and there could be lasting effects as a direct cause of the

fight. She said his injuries included a deviated septum, stitches in his lips, a right sinus fracture and scarring. About 4:05 p.m. Horstman was notified that Tyler Whitecotton was at the office asking to see an officer. Whitecotton told Horstman he believed “Cornfed” was named Marty. He said he and “Cornfed” were new hires for Lariat and Collins had worked for them a while. Whitecotton said he was directly behind Collins, Russell and Workman during the scuffle. He said while Collins was definitely hovering over the fight, he was telling “Cornfed” to let go and leave with him. He said when Collins pulled Workman off, they left the bar in Collins’ vehicle which he (Whitecotton) drove and returned to the bunkhouses except for Workman who left on foot. Horstman asked Whitecotton to have Collins contact him. While still in the office, Horstman received a call from Collins who described Workman punching Gummit in the face and knocking Russell to the floor. Collins said they were all hovering over the fight, and he attempted to get Workman off Russell by reaching under his shoulder with one hand and patting him on the head with the other. He said he told Russell not to move to avoid a sucker punch being thrown and starting the confrontation again. He said they left in his vehicle with Whitecotton driving. Horstman asked Collins why he was dodgy answering questions for Officer Jones earlier. He said Workman was back at the bunkhouses and he feared if he said anything incriminating, he would end up like Grummit. “Cornfed’s” last name had not yet been determined. Collins called Horstman when he was back at the bunkhouses with a supervisor. Horstman went there, but the supervisor said he had not met all the new hires. He went in and knocked on a couple of doors asking for Marty. A man identified himself as Marty Workman. Horstman asked Workman to answer a few questions about the previous night. Workman immediately asked if Grummit was ok. Horstman told him Grummit’s condition, and Workman seemed extremely distressed. Asked to describe the fight, Workman

Man hospitalized after bar fight By Marione Martin A man has been charged with assault in Alfalfa County after a bar fight sent a man to the hospital. Marty Workman, 23, no address listed, has been charged with aggravated assault and battery. A warrant has been issued for his arrest. According to court records, the bar fight occurred on Tuesday, May 27, a few minutes before midnight at the BYZ’s Bar and Grill on West Second Street in Cherokee. The next day Cherokee Police Officer Christopher D. Horstman questioned the people involved. He first talked to Officer Matthew Jones who said he and Trooper Lisa Jorgensen responded to the call about the bar fight. Jones said he entered the bar to see Ronald Grummit, Jr. lying on the ground bleeding. When the suspects had left the bar, one of the patrons wrote down the tag number of one of the vehicles. The bartender, Christa Holt, gave Jones a description of the two males involved including tattoos on the arm of one of the men. Jones said he left to search for the vehicle and located it at the north end of Industrial Road at the Lariat Bunk Housing. Jones located an individual who matched the description including the tattoos. He was identified as Jimmy J. Collins, owner of the vehicle. Officer Jones said Collins was extremely evasive about any involvement in the bar fight and said he left before any fighting took place. Horstman went to the bar and interviewed Holt who said Grummit and Richard Russell were drinking together and conversing back and forth with Collins and an unknown man known as

Medication management

Local resident reports new rip-off scheme

A regional non-profit and a pharmacist from the University of Oklahoma are teaming up to provide medication management training to seniors in the area. “Using Medications Safely – A Key Ingredient to Your Health” will be offered to those aged 65 and over, as well as their caregivers, in Cherokee. The program will offer tips for using medications safely and questions you should ask your doctor and pharmacist. “This program is intended to empower older people to become more active participants in the decision-making process regarding their medications [including] prescription, over-the-counter and herbals,” said Mark A. Stratton, the pharmacist who developed and presents the information. “The outcome of this empowerment is that through education older people will reduce their risk of side-effects from medication and achieve better outcomes from the medications they use.” Stratton holds the positions of professor of pharmacy and Herbert and Dorothy Langsam Endowed Chair in Geriatric Pharmacy. He is the director See Medication Page 34

By Marione Martin An Alva man received an exciting letter telling him he had won $250,000 as a second prize winner in the European, African and USA Consumer sweepstake promotional draw. Enclosed was a check for $4,350 from the General Fund Village of Pilger at a Pilger, Neb., post office box drawn on the Midwest Bank in Pierce, Neb. Realizing the letter and check were a scam, the local resident took them to the Woods County district attorney’s office. He also stopped by the newspaper office to warn others. An internet search reveals that Pilger, Neb., is a small village with 378 residents in Stanton County in northeastern Nebraska. The Mutual Financial Incorporated office address in the USA is listed

Page 26

as 305 Main St., Los Angeles, Calif. Another Internet search on that address immediately brought up a website titled “Ripoff Report.” It seems that address has been used frequently for several similar scams under different company names. Mutual Financial also lists offices in the United Kingdom, Africa and Italy. The letter tells the addressee to deposit the $4,350 check and use it to pay the $3,900 processing fee to receive a certified check for winning. A toll free phone number and contact name are included. Of course, the “lucky winner” will discover that the check is no good, and he or she will be out $3,900. The local man was told this scam seems to be targeting Oklahoma residents. Remember, if it’s too good to be true, it is probably a scam.

Oklahoma May revenue rises assisted by oil and gas prices By Tim Talley OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma's overall tax receipts rose slightly in May compared with a year ago buoyed by revenue from oil and gas production, which helped to compensate for a 10 percent fall in monthly revenue from income taxes, state Treasurer Ken Miller said Tuesday. "Things continue to look good, economically speaking," Miller said as he released his office's revenue report for the month of May. "Steady growth, especially in the oil field, is the order of th

the day." Miller said overall collections for the month were almost 2 percent ahead of the same month last year. Receipts for the past 12 months are more than 3 percent higher than the previous 12 months. "Since hitting a gross receipts trough in February 2010, the cumulative 12-month total is now almost 25 percent larger at $11.63 billion," Miller said. Although growth has slowed somewhat since the state began to emerge from the 2008 recession, "we do see a picture of measured expansion ongoing for more than four years now."

Man accused of passing bogus $19,000 check

Sharon student earns scholarship from Fort Hays State University

By Marione Martin A Kansas man has been charged with a bogus check felony in Alfalfa County. Kevin Kastl, 46, of Mulvane, Kan., has been charged with obtaining cash and/or merchandise by bogus check. A warrant has been issued for his arrest. According to court documents, Kastl is accused of having passed a $19,000 check to an employee of Tim Kolb on April 22, 2014, in Cherokee. The check written on an account at Bank of America was not honored by that bank, showing that the defendant did not have sufficient funds on deposit for payment.

Kali Thompson, a 2014 Medicine Lodge High School graduate, has accepted a $500 Academic Opportunity Award in agriculture to Fort Hays State University, Hays, Kan., for the 2014-2015 academic year. Thompson, daughter of Randy and Lisa Thompson, Sharon, plans a career in veterinary medicine.

Storms hit Midwest, ‘dangerous evening’ in the area forecast By Barbara Rodriguez DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Severe weather packing large hail and heavy rain rolled into Nebraska and Iowa on Tuesday as potentially dangerous storms targeted a swath of the Midwest, including states where voters were casting ballots in primary elections. The National Weather Service said the highest risk for severe weather was centered in parts of northern and eastern Nebraska, western and southern Iowa, and northeast Missouri. Officials said there was the potential for a weather event called a derecho, which is a storm of strong straight-line winds spanning at least 240 miles. "This is one of these days we can't let our guard down," said Bill Bunting, forecast operations chief at the Storm

An outbreak of severe thunderstorms is forecast for the afternoon into the early hours of Wednesday. It could pack winds of up to 80 mph, large hail and up to 4 inches of rain. In Nebraska, weather officials said at least one severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was reported near the city of Fullerton. A similar thunderstorm was reported in the western Iowa community of Elliot. Officials say they won't be able to confirm if there were any tornadoes for several hours.

Midwest VA hospitals also had secret waiting lists By John Milburn TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The problems with delayed care and unauthorized wait lists that caused a furor at a Veterans Affairs health care campus in Arizona existed at several facilities in the Midwest, but in much smaller numbers, VA officials said in letters to two U.S. senators. The Department of Veterans Affairs maintained 10 such "secret waiting lists" of military veterans in need

From Page 26

of care at facilities in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana, the letters said. They also said at least 96 veterans waited more than 90 days for treatment at seven facilities in those states, including 26 in St. Louis and 19 in Columbia, Missouri. The letters said that eight of the 10 lists "served to complement authorized lists to more fully support Veteran care and access." But the two other lists, including one at the Wich-

ita facility, "placed Veterans at risk." The information about conditions in the VA's Heartland Network was sent to U.S. Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran of Kansas late last week, as the VA released a summary of 216 site-specific audits detailing widespread falsification of waiting list records and unreported treatment delays at VA facilities nationwide.

showed a decrease in personal income tax collections, down by almost 10 percent from the prior year. Miller said the drop is due to differences in estimated and final income tax payments, which can vary from month to month. John Estus, spokesman for the state Office of Management and Enterprise Services, said such drops are not unusual during the tax-filing season. Corporate income tax collections, which can vary widely from month to month, were up in May for the fifth time in the past 12 months, rising $567,000 more than May 2013 collections. Sales tax collections, often viewed as an indicator of consumer confidence, are

up by almost $25 million, or more than 7 percent, in May. And gross production tax collections on oil and natural gas production in May jumped by almost 28 percent from prior year receipts, generating more than $80 million. Chad Warmington, president of the Oklahoma Oil & Gas Association, said in a statement that the revenue report "shows how Oklahoma's energy sector is driving revenue growth for the state." Warmington praised the Legislature's passage of a measure that updates Oklahoma's gross production tax code and establishes permanent tax rates, saying it "gives producers the certainty they need to keep investing capital in

Oklahoma." Gov. Mary Fallin signed the measure, House Bill 2562, into law on May 28. It taxes all of Oklahoma's oil wells at a standard 2 percent rate for the first three years of production. Afterwards, the tax would return to the standard tax rate of 7 percent. The new rates are set to go into effect for wells drilled after July 1, 2015. "The implementation of sound tax policies like those contained in HB 2562 will keep our economy on track for continued steady growth," Warmington said. Miller said the state's strong economy is reflected in its low unemployment rate. Oklahoma's unemployment rate was 4.6 percent in April, compared with a national jobless rate of 6.3 percent. April unemployment in Oklahoma City was set at 3.8 percent, down from 4.8 percent in March.

said there were confrontational words by Collins and Russell when Grummit stepped forward and said, “We can do this.” Workman said he punched Grummit in the face, knocking him unconscious. He turned his attention to Russell knocking him to the ground. Workman said at that point he blacked out in rage. He said one of the guys nearby got his attention and told him to get off and that it was time to leave. He said he left on foot and walked back to the bunkhouse terrified at what he had done. He said he spent the night praying that Grummit was alright and feared he had hurt him severely.

swingbed care. Total outpatient visits were 514 which is the lowest month of the year so far as were clinic visits at 328. Physical therapy was steady at 119. ER visits were average at 47. Radiology tests were steady. Lab visits and testing were down slightly. Despite the slower-than-usual month, the hospital showed a paper profit of $208,315. Goodno explained that’s due to contractual adjustments. In April the hospital had a $337,647 Medicare adjustment that she described as “huge.” Goodno explained, “After the cost report was filed, we now have the updated Medicare rates along with hospital volumes being down.” For April with the contractual adjustments, the hospital’s net patient revenue was $580,005. Total operating expenses were $545,265. As it happens twice a year, three pay periods were paid in April, which made total salaries $265,621. That’s $83,416 higher than the previous month. Professional fees increased by $50,813. Goodno said that was due to increased contract labor – ER/physician coverage/interim contact administration.

This all made the hospital’s net from operations $38,279. The addition of non-operating revenue includes: $81,572 tax money, $67 rental and interest, and $90,397 from the foundation for the new hospital expenses. That total is $172,036. All those figures combined make the hospital’s revenue in excess of expenses $208,315. This puts the hospital in the black year-to-date by $21,861. The combined balance sheet for the hospital and manor show an overall loss of $126,160 at the end of April. Manor Stats and Financials Dunigan said the average manor census for April was 24 residents and mid-May the manor had 23 residents. Total resident care revenue was $112,822 and with contractual adjustments net patient revenue was $115,660. Total operating expenses were $192,845. These figures resulted in a negative net from operations of $75,186. With the addition of $5,098, mainly tax revenue, the manor had a loss of $70,087 for April. Year-to-date the manor had lost $148,022 at the end of April

order to receive a more attractive rate. A committee of Steve Shiever, Steve Parkhurst, Steve Ellis and Larry Parker will review the extra-duty salary schedule and report back next month. Another committee of Jo Ann Isenbart, Steve Parkhurst, Jane McDermott and Lynda Martin will review the support staff salary schedule and report back next month. Parkhurst reviewed the 2013 District Report Card. He mentioned many inconsistencies that are frustrating to all educational professionals and told of the problems of the “playing field” being changed each year. The report card will be reprinted on another page. The board members were assigned the homework of reviewing potential new policies proposed by the OSSBA. The district signed on last year to have the state keep their policies up to date. However, sometimes the proposed policies are simply not in line with some of the traditions of the district. So the board members will review these to be considered at next month’s meeting.

Harvest day. “It was a little lighter to the east.” “It’s too late for the crop, but good for everything else,” Newman said. He said this 2014 was planted “in good moisture” last fall and “had some of the better stands we’ve had in a long time.” Then no moisture after the first of the year did major damage, he said. Newman estimates about 4,000 acres of canola will be harvested in the Burlington area. He said farmers are swathing it now. The canola seed is crushed and the oil extracted. The crop is based on the oil content in the crop and discounted accordingly, Newman explained. He said it’s a complicated formula. Newman estimates cutting will start in the Burlington area mid to late week, weather dependent.

tem-wide investigation after it was found that the Phoenix VA Health Care System had about 1,700 veterans in need of care on secret waiting lists, and another that had 1,400 waited over 90 days for primary care appointments. The scandal led to the resignation last week of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki. Roberts said Tuesday he wanted more answers about conditions at the Robert J. Dole Veterans Administration Medical Center in Wichita and the other facilities. One letter said 21 veterans waited longer for 90 days for care in Wichita; the second put that total at nine. Roberts said he had earlier been assured by VA officials there were no such problems at the hospital. "My top priority is who is on that secret list and what is the status of their care?" Roberts said. The letters were sent to the senators by Francisco Vasquez, director of the Dole medical center, and Dr. William P. Patterson, the director of

the VA's Heartland Network. The two senators said they forwarded the information in the letters to the VA's Office of Inspector General. The letters were first reported Monday by The Wichita Eagle. They both said the practices had been "immediately discontinued" and veterans were being contacted to ensure they are receiving the proper level of care, the letter said. It added that investigations into the issues are "ongoing." Officials from the Wichita VA didn't immediately respond to questions Tuesday from The Associated Press. The 61 hospitals or clinics in the VA's Heartland Network serve Kansas, Missouri and parts of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. The veterans who waited for care longer than 90 days included 14 in Poplar Bluff, Missouri; 12 in Kansas City; eight in a facility serving eastern Kansas and another eight in a facility serving the southern parts of Illinois and Indiana.

fect parts of Illinois, Kansas and South Dakota. Severe weather in Omaha caused officials to close Eppley Airfield airport. Baseball-size hail also was reported in the northeast community of Norfolk, Nebraska. The bad weather has already had an impact on the primary elections in Iowa, where some officials and voters were forced to seek shelter in Pottawattamie County around 5 p.m. County Auditor Mary Jo Drake said operations have been suspended in about 10 precincts out of 40. There are no reports of injuries. "It's nasty here, you can't imagine," Drake said. "It's as black as the ace of spades." Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz also encouraged residents to vote early due to the expected severe weather.

In South Dakota, a thunderstorm forced Senate candidate Mike Rounds, who was flying to Rapid City, to land in Pierre. Secretary of State Jason Gant said he hopes the weather doesn't hurt voter turnout, but he wants people to be safe. Bunting said Iowa residents planning to vote Tuesday should be cautious about when they head out to the polls. "There may be in many areas time to go out and do things before the storms hit. I think the main thing is to listen to the forecast, get some sense of when storms are likely in your area and just make sure you're in a safe place before the storms hit," he said. The severe weather threat arrives amid an unusually quiet late spring, with far fewer documented tornados in May than in many recent years.
