The Stonewall Memorial Board was also updated on nursing home construction progress and looked into increasing rates at the facility before conducting regular business last week.

The board approved the transition to Athena from their former medical record keeping service provider, CPSI, back in April. The move was anticipated to save the hospital around $200,000 annually. Additionally, Hospital Administrator Andy Kolb had said reviews of Athena reported medical staff favored it.

Aspermont ISD Government class observe county government first hand

By Jeff Hurt

The Stonewall County commissioners had guests in the courtroom Tuesday, as students from the AISD dual-credit government course were present in order to get a real-world view of how local government operates. Commissioners reviewed the quarterly investment reports, discussed future operations, and approved bids for struck-off property among the day’s agenda items.

In her quarterly investment report, County Treasurer Anya Mullen informed the court how the County only had to extract a little over $20,000 from the CD. She went on to explain how this was, in fact, good news considering the IT work and new deputy sheriff vehicles, and helping the fire department purchase a new truck, which was not budgeted for at the beginning of the year.
