DKG Welcomes Teachers with Ice Cream Social

The Gamma Tau Chapter of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International welcomed the Rotan ISD teachers and faculty with an Ice Cream Social in the Rotan ISD LRC after school on Monday, September 18, 2017, following a brief business meeting led by Mary Ann Marshall, president. Members enjoyed walking through the library and noticing the changes since they had been in the building. Of special interest was the LRC north wall of decorations from past years. DeeAnn Mullins pointed out the part of a band uniform from when she was in RHS, and an enlarged picture taken in the early 80’s when Marshall’s daughter, Jerilyn, was a twirler in the RHS band. Mullins reminded the group that more information was researched over the internet, so there was less need for encyclopedia books.

Coastal cotton industry hit hard by Hurricane Harvey

CORPUS CHRISTI – Hurricane Harvey and its after-effects have the coastal cotton industry reeling, according to Texas A&M AgriLife experts.

Dr. John Robinson, College Station, said harvest activities were 40 percent complete leading up to the arrival of Hurricane Harvey and estimated 300,000 to 400,000 bales of cotton were still on the stalk prior to the storm.

“One producer I talked to said three quarters of his cotton was on the ground from the heavy rain and high winds,” he said. Harvested cotton could also be impacted, he said.

ROBY HOMECOMING 35th BIENNIAL

by Robert Allen

Homecoming, coming home, returning to that place where we grew up. Even if it’s just for a little while. Going back to memories of long ago things. Football games, driving the drag (an endless circle through town for those that have no clue), hanging out with all of our friends, playing and marching in the band, bonfire building for the big Homecoming game, staying out later than we should. The list would be endless and different for everyone because we all have our own remembrances.

Neighboring counties hear about benefit rate increases

Representatives from the Texas Association of Counties (TAC) traveled from Austin recently to speak to Fisher and Kent county commissioners about increases in rates for employee benefits.

TAC was able to get benefits renewals out to counties about two weeks early this year, good news for counties as they approach finalizing their budgets for the upcoming fiscal year. TAC has spent the last two years training in order to move through the system fast enough to get the renewals out this early. The overall goal is to get the renewals out another two weeks earlier in years to come.

Kathy Davenport is the Employee Benefits Consultant for the Northwest Territory for TAC. She presented information to the Kent commissioners while her colleague, Ernesto Martinez spoke to the Fisher County Court about insurance rates for 2018.

The Transition of Care program RN will call patients within 2 business days after hospital discharge to assure that all needs have been met that were identified during the discharge planning process. If the patient is experiencing any problems with medications or follow up appointments then the RN will assist the patient with the appropriate referrals for assistance. Stonewall Memorial Hospital is very excited about the Transition of Care program and the help it will provide to our patients.
