At last month's meeting of the Adams Health Network (AHN) Board of Trustees, members learned a state hospital tax tab of $1,346,270.49 had put their financial bottom line several hundred thousand dollars in the red.
This month, the federal government came a-callin' again, but this visit left the hospital leaders in good spirits as Medicare deposited a settle-up check for 2011 in AHN coffers for approximately $750,000 — meaning the hospital now shows a $268,298 balance in the black.
Adams County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Anya Pinkerton has announced a major change in crop acreage reporting dates for the 2013 crop year.
All fall-seeded small grains must now be reported by Dec. 15.
“In past years, producers had until July 15 to report their acreage for wheat and other small grains,” said Pinkerton “The new reporting date is much sooner than the prior deadline, so we encourage producers to make an appointment to stop by and file a crop report.”
The 11th annual Callithumpian Car Show and Poker Run will be held this Saturday, rain or shine.
The entry fee is $10 per player if pre-registered and $15 on-site registration. All participants must register or check in between noon and 1 p.m. at Riverside Center, 231 E Monroe Street. The last vehicle must be out by 12:30 p.m.
Judging will take place at 2 pm. due to a shorter route, organizers said.
