Red to black: Last month’s taketh is this month’s giveth

October 25, 2012

    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.

October 25, 2012

    “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.”
