'Plan B' for financial crisis
With Tuesday night's decision
by the county commission to deny
a request for a $500,000 bail-out
for Doctors' Memorial Hospital,
many are asking what the hospital
will do now.
At the public hearing, which had
some 200 people in attendance,
DMH Board of Directors
Chairman Scott Mixon addressed
commissioners after it was
apparent the vote would not go the
"We can appreciate and
understand how difficult that
decision could be," Mixon said.
"Right now the decisions that we
make as the DMH board are
difficult for us. But now that we
know that the county is unable to

we have to implement that plan

Before a crowd of some 200
people, many of whom were
Doctors' Memorial Hospital
employees, the county commission
denied a request from hospital
officials for a $500,000 bail-out.
The request, which also asked
for a $250,000 monthly subsidy,
was made earlier this month by
DMH CEO Charles Darcy and
Board of Directors Chairman Scott
Mixon. They made the request
after reporting that the hospital had
experienced two straight months
with net operating losses
Tuesday's public hearing lasted
only 90 minutes, but ended with
commissioners citing their own
financial concerns before voting
unanimously to deny the request.
While the hearing drew one of
the largest crowds in recent
memory, only 22 people took the
podium to speak out on the
Most of the public comments
were not about the request itself,
but about keeping the hospital
"A hospital is one of the finest
assets a community can have," said
Donald Bowden. "We have a fine
facility here. Let's keep it here."
"If you close the hospital, you
won't have any help," said 33-year
DMH employee Mildred
Alexander. "Treat the hospital like
your home. You love your home.
You want to keep your home."
Later in the meeting,
Commissioner Malcolm Page said
he was surprised by the comments
about closing the hospital.
"Is this a scare tactic or is this for
real?" he asked.
"The request before us is for
$500,000. I asked very early
on--do you have a plan? I still don't
have a total vision of the plan.
We're at that point that I need to
Almost all who spoke supported
the hospital, but a number called

Bill Brynes said.
"We need to know why we keep
losing physicians," said Cindy
"I don't think a corporation
should be allowed to ask private
citizens for money," Neil Rice
said. "We're feeding a dead horse
Dr. Miles Nelson spoke about
what he saw as the root cause of
the hospital's problems: the
downturn in admissions. Recent
census numbers of admitted
patients show between 10-12 daily
while the hospital needs 18-20, he
"On any given day" there are 60
Taylor County residents in other
area hospitals, 45 of whom could
be treated locally, he said.
"The problem is the lack of
admissions by local physicians,"
When it was time for the
commissioners to speak,
Commissioner Pat Patterson was
first, speaking passionately about
the community's need for a
hospital, but also the need for
financial accountability and good
medical services at DMH.
"I know everybody in this room
cares very deeply about Doctors'
Memorial Hospital," Patterson
She placed some of the blame
for the hospital's problems on local
physicians "not getting along" and

While the annual Martin,Luther

testimonials given by those who
once stood on the frontlines of the
civil rights movement stretched
Spontaneous and unrehearsed,
their stories painted a stark picture
of injustices and wrongs whose
sting is felt even now.
"In the 1960s, I graduated from
high school, and in 1964
affirmative action came in and I
got a job at Buckeye. So I went
into the workforce. I cleaned
bathrooms I couldn't go in and
break rooms where I was not
welcomed. Then came the Vietnam
War and I found myself in a
foreign land fighting for freedoms
I couldn't enjoy at home," Pastor
Chester Demps said.
"After the war, I came home in
1969 and something had changed.
I declared in myself that if I was
willing to die in a foreign land

group of 40 or so march
"We have come a long way--and
we still have a long way to go. My

A jingle whose author I do not know says, "Richer than
I you can never be, for I had a mother who read to me.";
In a sense, I am rich, too, but it was my father whG
filled the role of reader to me. Papa passed down his only
kind of wealth so free-handedly it took some maturity on
my part to realize that he had given his children a
worthwhile endowment quite early in their own lives.:
Papa's simply stated, "I enjoy reading," heard many
times, I now think of as a masterpiece of understatement;
I think Papa had to read. For a man who coped with.
rearranging a family through the strenuous manual
labor and relative low pay of a carpenter, I believe his;
reading was necessary to keep in balance.
Daily, as he hammered and sawed and planed, his;
mind and body were absorbed in that effort. At night,,
however, after his work was done, he could set forth
through his reading, into all manner of adventures that
provided release and restoration. He took his childrenS
especially the older two, along with him on these
For several years in the early '20s he held almost
nightly read-aloud sessions. The nostalgic picture of
father reading while mother mended and the oldef
children listened and the younger ones played quietly on
the floor was a fairly valid image of our home during that
period. The intrusion of the radio a few years later diluted
for the younger members of the group some of the
richness of those early years.
And even before the
session ended Papa realized
that his two main partners oi
adventure were. running
ahead of him at times. As he
began to find that his book
had been moved or his place
lost, he could tell that his
children had been dipping in

as we raced past the roads

those we did.
All of us weathered
together. the brutal typhoons Mary Lou Whitfield
of the far Pacific. suffered the
agonizing cold of the frozen north or searched for the ricl-
lodes of gold ore in the American West. ..
We endured the hardships of the long cattle drives andt '
drove into Oklahoma Territory with the first of the
Sooners. When the golden spike was driven to join the
final links of the great Union-Pacific railroad, we were on
hand for the celebration.
Zane Grey was one of our favorites, and Edgar Rice_
Burroughs was another. When, a generation later, my:
children were yodeling out Tarzan's call from the trees
around this house I had a strong feeling, "This is where I
came in." My brother and I had already gone thorough
the Tarzan stage. back in the 1920s.
It was all pretty heady stuff, even for Papa, but far more-i
so for the beginning bookworms of his family. We fell
short of being omnivorous only because none of the so-:
called true romances were included. Mamma would have':
put her foot down on that.
Without access to the library we had to strain our
funds to buy westerns and adventure magazines at the
drug store. Later on, when we could check oit from th&P":
school library, we went through its limited offerings. One
way or another. we found something to read. Papa's
occupation sometimes had a fringe benefit of some
reading material. With remodeling and maintenance he
was often inside homes around town. In them he spotted
books that people were willing to loan, and from some he_.
even had outright gifts of single copies, or at times, a
whole armload of books they had grown tired of. These he-
brought home with the air of a prospector who had
struck it rich.
He found one such bonanza when one of the doctors
redecorated his office and loaned Papa his collection of
escape fiction for the duration of the job. For several:
weeks, we were involved in the underworld intrigue of
Sax Rohmer's sinister and mysterious Dr. Fu Manchu.
Mamma took a dim view of this fare, but we weathered
her opinion and kept right on reading. Toward the end of
the '20s an hlonest-to-goodness author, Edison Marshall,'
lived for a lilme in a small cabin down at Horse Pond,
northeast of Keaton Beach. I saw him once as he entered-.,
the Dixie Taylor Hotel here in Perry.
As I reported the sighting to Papa.,I told about the
beggarweed seeds and sandspurs that covered Mr.-
Marshall's khaki pants from the knees down. Papa and I:
agreed that he was likely too absorbed in his writings to:
even be aware of such trivialities.
1 recaptured some of the same awe I felt in the near
contact with Marshall, one day many years later. My
husband aind I were wandering about the house of
another author. Marjorie Kinnran Rawlings, down below
Gainesville. She seemed almost present, and her house
resembled one we had lived in for many years. I could
almniost visualize Papa, pipe forgotten by his side,
embarked vicariously on some great adventure, slumped
in his chair w\itlh a )ook in his hands. I had a momentary
need to talk with Papa about it all, but was suddenly
delighted wilh the thought that he had already gone on
ahead on his greatest adventure of all. And he was living
it urip in tac(. niot facy.

SArt spotlighted at PWC meeting
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
JoAnna dcLorenzi remembers
the day she was told that she had
"absolutely no artistic talent.."
On that day, she dropped her art
instruction and didn't paint a thing
for four or five years.
Not one thing.
Then her husband gave her
private art lessons as a Christmas
present, and the world of art
opened to her again.
"I began painting and exhibiting.
In fact, I sold many paintings
then," she recalls.
"But life got complicated again,"
she admits and painting fell by the
"I returned to art at the age of 50
when a good friend pushed me to
do so. It mushroomed from there.
I sold lots of commissioned pieces
in the early 1990s and in 2000 1
moved to Vero Beach where I
joined an art group there."
Two years ago, deLorenzi
moved back to Taylor County--
where she's been "hiding in the
sand hills off Kcaton Beach Road."
Art has followed her home, and
led her to a deeper love of
photography, portrait work, "the
whimsical quality of children's
art," and paintings which include

hills but she is also drawing
inspiration from them, and has

lay-offs are in the works or how
many jobs are at risk.
Earlier this month, Darcy
eurlined measures the hospital was
jawing to 'cut costs, including
cutting employee hours 10 percent
-aiross the board, along with
gOtinating overtime and putting a
frieze on salary increases.
::I'Tm looking at other avenues to
keep the hospital running," he said.
,We need the support of all of the
i~munity. I think we got that
Ii'More long-term solutions
include physician recruitment,
Mprading equipment, the creation

:and OR collections for non-
emergency patients and
contracting with a new ER
Darcy added that despite the
current problems, he has been
heartened by the number of calls
his office has received from county
residents pledging their support for
the hospital and even offering
"That's the kind of grassroots
efforts we need."
Darcy also said there needs to be
continued dialogue between the
board and the commission.
"We are health care providers.
That's what we do. I'm not going to
give up," Mixon said Tuesday
night. "I don't think the board is
going to give up. From the look of
the employees tonight, it doesn't
look like they're going to give up.
You have my commitment. I'm
here for the long haul, as well as
many of the board members and
many of the employees."
"Each time the hospital has
come before us, we have put
money in the pot," she said.
"We seem to be constantly
giving money and then they are
constantly coming back for more.
Something is wrong. We need to
get to the bottom of it and turn it
around. We need to turn it around
Patterson was followed by
Commissioner Rudolph Parker.
"I think the public in general
thinks the county operates the
hospital," Parker said. "The fact is
the county owns the hospital,
which is paid for by a one-cent
sales tax. The facility was then
leased to the hospital for the sum
of $150 per year. There ends our
"The lease very specifically
allows for the hospital organization
to operate the facility as a non-
profit corporation. The lease also
very specially provides there will
be no political interference."
Parker cited the financial issues
discussed during a workshop held
last week, which included the
potential loss of revenue from the
Jan. 29 property tax amendment
and the funds locked in the State
Board of Administration Local
Government Investment Pool.
"My heart tells me that I want to
help the hospital out of this
financial shortfall. But my
judgment tells me the cold hard
facts are that my first obligation
is ensure, normal county
functions...are to be protected, and
that this infusion of money would
only be a short term fix and
will not provide any kind of long-
term financial security for the
Commissioner Mark Wiggins
continued the discussion.
"As we saw from Wednesday
night's workshop, we have no
money to give because of the
uncertainty of the budget and
economy of the state," he said.
"This is a difficult decision.
While I support the hospital and
feel it a vital asset to our
community, DMH has now turned
this difficult decision over the
board of county commissioners.
After careful consideration, I
believe the DMH board needs to

"We as a commission are not in
charge of the hospital. We do not
take on the operations. The
taxpayers are paying for the
building. That's all we have control
over. DMH is a corporation of its
own and they are responsible for
the contract they signed to provide
healthcare to the community.

board to come up with a plan to
turn this around because they are
closest to the situation. We are not

law enforcement investigators said
both men were wearing hunter
orange ball caps but were not
visible to each other, due to the
distance. They said lack of
visibility from on-and-off rain and
hazy conditions also was a factor.
In a separate incident, an
employee of Merrily Plantation in
Jefferson County received non-life
threatening injuries Jan. 17 when
a guest accidentally shot him on a
quail covey rise.
Ronald William Harrell, 41,
who handles quail dogs for the

The family of Beth Mann wraps our arms around Perry and
humbly thank you all for the out pouring of concern, caring,
gifts, kindred spirits with acts of kindness that cushioned our
broken hearts to cope with the short illness and loss of our
beloved Beth on Nov. 30, 2007. The southern grace, southern
cooking, and southern love shown in cards with heartfelt
sentiments to sprinkle on our sad souls will be remembered
The flowers and plants draping her were beautiful; the
40+ ribbons are tenderly displayed at her house to honor her
life. Every flower was sprinkled in her backyard. There is
no place like her home. Being the twin, I will forever feel the
dark side of the moon.
Our love and deepest gratitude,

This referendum is not related to State Constitutional Amendment #1
A "YES" vote on the city/county referendum is not a tax give-a-way.
It only allows our local government to compete with other communities to attract and retain quality jobs.
*It is not automatic.
A business seeking incentives
must convince the county
commission or city council
that its salary and benefits
package reach certain thresholds.
*A good example.
Lance (formerly Tom's Foods)
recently had a decision to make.
Expand its plant in Taylor County
or the one in Corsicana, Texas.
This program helped convince
Lance to expand here.
Look for the box on the back side of the ballot labeled
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTION REFERENDUM
Shall the Board of County Commissioners of Taylor County
be authorized to grant, pursuant to Section 3, Article VII
of the State Constitution, Property Tax Exemptions to new
businesses, and expansions of existing businesses?
S YES For authority to grant exemptions
NO Against authority to grant exemptions

40 YES For authority to grant exemptions
C( NO -Against authority to grant exemptions
*NOTE: City residents will vote on both the city and county referendum.
Numerous new, quality jobs
for our people plus new tax
dollars we would have ndver
seen if the plant had expanded
Let's look at the big picture. The taxes from the Lance facility, formerly Tom's Foods,
are unchanged -- they continue to pay those.
Lance needed to add kettle chip manufacturing lines, either in Perry or Corsicana, Texas.
Due to a Taylor County economic development incentives package, Lance committed to
make a capital investment of $7.75 million and create 52 additional jobs here, not in
Texas. The actual numbers turned out to be $ 9.18 million and 60 jobs.
The incentive package included tax exemption of 50% of new general fund taxes on
the $7.75 million, capped at $36,000 per year. This results in the school district and
city getting 100% of the new taxes. From a community-wide standpoint, we exempted
a maximum of $360,000, but realized over $1 million in new tax money due to those
jobs being here rather in Texas.
These new quality jobs will add over $1 million annually to our local economy. Those
dollars are rolled over in a community (spent more than once locally; some economists
say up to eight times). Using a rollover factor of only two, Taylor County's one percent
sales tax revenue would be increased by over $20,000 annually. This is in addition to
the new taxes in the above chart.
How important is the hospital to our community? Does it help Doctors' Memorial
Hospital (DMH) by having 60 new potential hospital users that work for a company
that pays 80% of their employees' health care insurance' and also provides access to
health insurance for the employee's family?
This increase in tax revenue helps your child in school here; not children in Texas
schools! It helps the city provide services for our city residents; not Corsicana city
residents! It assists Doctors' Memorial Hospital in Perry; not Navarro Regional Hospital
A "YES" vote for the referendum
is a vote for
Our definition of quality jobs includes
employer-paid benefits, like health insurance.
More jobs with healthcare benefits
will only help our hospital.
Some Things Just Make Good, Common Sense!

Day-Lewis mixes oil and 'Blood'
When we experience a piece of fiction, whether it be
a movie, a stage play, a novel or a short story, we are
ingrained to associate ourselves with the main character.
It's only natural really, as we are seeing the world
through their eyes.
In most works, the main character is also, for the lack
: of a better term, the good guy. We root for him. More
-than that, we want to root for him. We are looking for
someone to follow and support; why else watch the
movie or read the book in the first place?
: Sometimes, however, we find ourselves rooting for
-'omeone who cannot be called a hero in the true sense of
.the word. Thus, the anti-hero was born. We are allowed
-to root for the anti-hero, because, deep down, he's still a
But how far are we willing to push that line? How far
will we follow our character into the abyss?
"There Will Be Blood," written and directed by Paul
Thomas Anderson, wants to find out.
The film follows Daniel Plainview, an early 20th
century prospector-turned-oil man. He is brought to life
by Daniel Day-Lewis, an actor who has had so many
spell-binding performances in his career that we come to
expect the best.
S6 what do we do when he exceeds even the highest
of our expectations?
Anderson, known for his quirky films like "Boogie
Nights" and "Punch Drunk Love," has, for his part,
given us a film that has an epic scope and a feel that
-efies definition as much as Plainview defies everyone
The film clocks in just over two and an half hours, and
is never in a rush to get where it's going. In fact, there is
no dialogue in the first 15 minutes of the movie, as we'
follow Plainview as he prospects for silver and begins
his quest for oil.
In its stead, we have only an eerily in-your-face score
that at first seems as out of place as the thick black oil
seeping out from under the ground. Soon, however, we
are acclimated to both and they seem as normal as apple
By the time we finally hear Plainview speak, it is
before a group of townspeople as he tries to buy the
mineral rights to their land. It is the same opening
-monologue heard in the film's trailer, and the audience--
in the theater and in the cramped town hall--are
captivated at once.
: When Plainview learns of a promising new venture
further west, he dutifully heads off with his son H.W. to
investigate. It is there he meets the self-proclaimed
prophet, Eli Sunday.
-We don't like Eli at once, because Plainview doesn't
like him. The oil man looks scornfully at the teen as he
swindles his father out of his land.
For the next two hours, we follow Plainview and his
efforts to develop the town and siphon its oil. He is a
complex, multi-faceted character, and as we get a better
look at him through the film, we find less to like.
Some have called the film a study in the evils of
capitalism. I don't see that. I see "There Will Be Blood"
as a study of the evil of a man who will do anything to
succeed, and will destroy any obstacle in his way, even
if by doing so, causes himself to suffer.
It is a rare character indeed that leaves you wondering
whether the author who gave him life completely
understood him. In that case, what real hope do we
We live in a society where every answer is only a few
mouse clicks away on our computers. We're simply not
used to not knowing.
But sometimes there are some characters we cannot
truly understand. The secrets they hold are buried too far
into their souls to be revealed even by the deepest and
most powerful drill.
When he is asked about his wife, he says. "I don't
want to talk about those things." We know that H.W. is
not his son, but his answer hints at even darker sins and
we have to ask ourselves if we really want to know. He
is the character we're supposed to be supporting.
Sometimes ignorance is bliss.
As I've said, we've grown accustomed to cheering on
our character. After 150 minutes, however, we have to
ask ourselves whether or not we still can. Some may
drop off when Plainview sends his son away after the
boy is injured. Others may give up when he attacks Eli
in a muddy field, or when he threatens a representative
from Standard Oil who is trying to buy him out.
Others may hang on until the bitter end, as we strive
to see the fruits of Plainview's labors as well as the
damage he has wrought around him.
Much has been said about the ending of the film. I
don't have too much to add, other than to say some will
like it and some will hate it.
Anderson gives us a chance to follow this character
for a short wile'asfi e lives his life, celebrates his
successes, carries his failures and commits his sins.
Plainview says, in the final scene, "I'm done in here."
Is it the end of his story? No. but it is the end of our
journey with him. It is not the definitive conclusion to
which we are accustomed from our movies to be sure.
But we have to accept that the time has come to pick
ourselves up and walk back into the light. And we
should be glad we can.
"There Will Be Blood" is rated R for some violence.
When "Gojira," better known in the states as
"Godzilla," was first released in Japan in 1954, it was
-more than just a movie about a guy in a rubber monster
suit destroying Tokyo.
While much of the context is lost in the English dub,
'the film contained overt social commentary on the
-very real concerns Japanese citizens had over nuclear
Weapons and weapons testing. The bombings of
.-Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the defining moments
for a generation of Japanese.
Today, the same can be said here in America about
the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. And our cinema equivalent
of "Godzilla" is the J.J. Abrams-produced
'5Cloverfield." The film--shot in shaky handi-cam--is
bout five friends trying to survive while a giant
monster attacks New York City. Like "Godzilla,"
;'"Cloverfield" brings into focus the very real fears
:Americans have felt for the past six years.
At the end of the day, however, "Godzilla" is still a
:movie about a guy in a rubber monster suit destroying
Tokyo. And "Cloverfield" is still a film--shot in shaky
handi-cam--about five friends trying to survive while a
-giant monster attacks New York City.
S"Cloverfield" has been surrounded by Internet buzz
sincee the first cryptic teaser was shown in front of
'"Transformers." The final product, released in theaters
last week, does a suitable job living up to the hype.
S"Cloverfield," from start to finish, is shot as if from
a hand-held camcorder. A disclaimer at the beginning
--identical to one shown in the trailer--states that the
footage was found in the area formally known as
The camera is owned by Rob Hawkins, who at the
start of the film is making a home-movie of his
girlfriend Beth (no, not that type of movie!). Before
-long, however, the footage is being taped over by his
brother, as he prepares for a going-away party for Rob.
Ordered by his girlfriend to tape the affair, he quickly
passes off the duty to mutual friend Hud. It is through
Hud's eyes, therefore, that we view the rest of the
movie, as he dutifully continues to film after the party
is disturbed first by an earthquake and then a giant
explosion. While we rarely see Hud, as he remains
.behind the camera for most of the film, his voice is our
"Someone will want to know," Hud says at one
point. "They'll want to know how it all went down."
And with that line, the audience is asked to accept
the idea that doofus that he is, Hud continues to film as
they race across Manhattan dodging the monster and
the military trying to fight it.
In the end, it all works. The whole thing could have
come off as simply a gimmick, but the first person
view gives the film a sense of immediacy, a sense of
being right there in the action, trying desperately to
survive. I found myself caring for the characters more,
and if an audience cares for a movie's characters,
they'll follow them anywhere.
"Cloverfield" is one part monster movie, one part
1970s disaster film, and one part "Blair Witch Project,"
taking the best of each to put on a new stamp on the
Unlike most recent disaster films, where the main
characters are the heroes and the decision makers--the
ones who can save the day, the characters of
"Cloverfield," whether they live or die, will not have a
bearing on the outcome of the disaster itself. They
won't be the ones to send the creature back to where it
came from. They won't lead the people of the world in
rebellion against it. They are simply the ants scurrying
around trying not to get stepped on.
While it's nothing new--classic disaster films like
"Towering Inferno" and "Earthquake" have similar
themes--it has been awhile since we've seen this
perspective. And that's where we go back to 9/11.
Those days brought home the very real possibility of
something terrible attacking us at home. It reminded us
that in situations like that, we have very little control
over the things around us.
While we might not easily relate to five upper-
middle class, New York 20-somethings, we can relate
to their fear. And that makes "Cloverfield" a much
more suspenseful film that I would have thought. Don't
think that I'm saying that the filmmakers are simply
playing on our fears about terrorist attacks. The movie
is still about a giant monster, even if this time it was
made in a computer rather than in a rubber mold.
"Cloverfield" caters to many fans, including those of
horror, science-fiction, action and disaster movies. A
word of warning, however: if you are prone to motion-
sickness or films like the Jason Bourne films bothered
you, do not go see this film in theaters. Wait for it to
come out on DVD and watch it on a smaller screen.
Everyone else, feel free to run in terror.
