The Doctors' Memiorial
Hospital board of directors
finalized its plan Tuesday to
cut salaries by 10 percent for
all employees making $25,000
or niore, a move which is
expected to save the hospital
$50,000 a month.
According to interim CFO
Bill Brynes, 163 employees
will be affected, while 142
others--either not making
$25,000 or under contract--will
not be included in the cuts.
Brynes said the move was
part of the board's efforts to
bring costs more, in line with
With the latest cut, current-
monthly cash needs are now
$1,867,755 per month.
This brings the hospital to
within $23,000 of the revenue
it has averaged since the start
of the fiscal year in June,
according to Brynes' figures.
He pointed out, however,.
that the hospital "must collect
more than current needs to pay
old accounts payable."
On Tuesday, the DMH board
will appear before the Taylor
County Commission during a
public hearing to determine
whether the county will use
excess sales tax funds to
purchase up to $3.5 million in
equipment for the hospital.

So how does a girl from
Perry find her way to Seoul?
A 2003 graduate of Taylor
County High School, she
earned-a college degree from
Florida State University in
2008. But, upon graduation,
she found herself "having a
difficult time finding a job in a
So she referenced Craig's
List on the Internet and came
upon a posting that was
headlined: "Teach in Korea."
The requirements for the job
seemed simple enough; they
wanted a photo and a resume.
On a whim, Hall followed
through. The next day, a
recruiter contacted her.
"He asked how serious I was,
insisted that I was qualified and
said he would'go ahead and
forward my resume to
headquarters in Seoul. I agreed
and that night, July 4, to be
exact, Kevin Seo called me."
A native Korean who spoke
little English, Seo was difficult
to understand "but he was very
patient and suggested that I
check out his Web site," Hall
said. "It contained a wealth of
information, and I read it--
inside and out--for the next two
days. I even researched other
Web sites to see how accurate
his was. Several days later, he
called again and I told him I
was ready to get started with
the paper work.".
Hall recalls -that the paper
work was overwhelming--
"many rounds of documents,
my transcript, my actual
diploma, copies of passport
information." A background
check followed, which had to
be notarized so Hall could
apply for a- work visa which
took about two weeks.
"Once he got the actual visa
number, he e-mia.led it to me
and I set up an interview with
the Korean Consulate in
Atlanta a week later. Then the
next day, I was' able to pick up
my passport." Suddenly, Hall
was cleared for Korea. "This
whole process took only eight
weeks; the time just flew by
and I couldn't believe I was
leaving in a week," she recalls.

circumstances and accomplishments of those who made possible this

hardihood, industry and fundamental Christian character which
impelled those early settlers to make this area of Florida a place
which attracts all those fortunate enough to find this location."

Aug. 30, was picked up by her
recruiter and introduced to the
president of the school.
"After that meeting, I was
under the impression that we
were returning to the city in
which I would live, but it
turned out that all my co-
workers were vacationing
together on the upper east side
of South Korea--four hours
away from my home city. I
was exhausted from the
airplane trip, and now the car
ride, but it turned out to be a
great weekend. The weather
was perfect; my co-workers
were great; we went river
rafting; and it looked like life
was going to be good."
Hall also ate her first Korean
meals there "and I didn't like
them one bit," she said. By the
time she did arrive at her actual
apartment, "I was wondering
'what I was; doing here in
Korea--missing my mom and
dad a lot. Just adjusting to the
culture has been one of the
hardest things I've ever
done--being in a foreign
country by myself," she says.
But school started, and the
kids arrived, and Hall says,
"My purpose for Korea
immediately dawned on me. I
On the days when she was
lonely or frustrated by the
confusion of a different culture,
Hall said she reminded herself
that she chose to make the
move. "At first, I didn't have a
cell phone and that was very
hard. E-mail was my primary
mode of communication. Then
they provided me a phone and
the first thing I did was run
outside and call home."
The daughter of Debbie and
Tommy Hall of Perry, Jenna
equates the move to being a
young child all over again.
"You literally revert back to
when you are one--you can't
speak, you can't read, you can't
do anything for yourself, and
you have no idea where you are
going. It was really frustrating
at times, and it's still frustrating

Hall also explained that',
instead of paying bills all over
town, you simply take them to
the bank and pay them there.
"Being in a foreign country
requires you to use a different
part of your brain," she said.
A perk to living in Korea, she
says, is that health insurance is
very reasonably priced.
Koreans, she. noted, are also
slow to prescribe medicines. "I
think we, as Americans, tend to
overmedicate. Here, they
believe in more traditional,
herbal remedies, not medicinal
ones." Yet after a recent illness,
Hall wrote, "I have come to
really appreciate the good ol'

that we are so fortunate to

I push right back and let them
know they are not going to run
over this American. It's a fast-
paced, impatient culture. They
start honking horns as soon as
,t, rgd light changes to green."
Overall, however, she admits
that she loves the country and
its people. "I even love being
in the minority here," she says.
"I am still reminded of where I
have come from and that will
always be close to my heart.
But when I arrived in Atlanta
on Christmas Day, I realized
that I had become accustomed

The employees of Doctors' Memorial Hospital (DMH) are committed
to ensuring that your hospital is a viable health care provider despite these
very challenging times. On behalf of DMH we would like to acknowledge
that we have work to do, problems to fix and negative connotations to
overcome. We realize we must work hard to earn your trust and wish to
share with you the steps being taken to regain your confidence.
BILLING & COLLECTIONS OVERHAUL DMH recently contracted with
national hospital financial consulting firm Quorum Health Resources (QHR) to
develop a "ROAD MAP" TO IMPROVE BILLING AND COLLECTIONS.
DMH now has a PATIENT FINANCIAL SERVICES MANAGER in place
after 20 months of that position being vacant.
DMH IS NOW COLLECTING THOUSANDS IN "UP FRONT"
PAYMENTS (prior to services) in 2008, compared to $0 in previous years.
DMH has seen IMPROVEMENT IN THE PERCENTAGE OF NET
COLLECTIONS and the number of INSURANCE CLAIM DENIALS ARE
ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLES DAYS are now approaching the NATIONAL
DMH has purchased the NECESSARY TOOLS TO ENHANCE INSURANCE
VERIFICATION AND ELIGIBILITY (necessary to determine and collect co-
pays and deductibles prior to the time of service).
DMH employees are COMMITTED to the RECRUITMENT of PRIMARY
CARE and SPECIALTY PHYSICIANS to help meet the needs of local citizens.
DMH has implemented STAFF REDUCTIONS, 10% SALARY CUTS (for
all those earning over $25,000 per year), CUT EXPENSES AND OVERHEAD,
CUT HOURS, CUT POSITIONS by combining responsibilities and implemented
a HIRING FREEZE SAVING THOUSANDS IN PAYROLL per pay period
over the last two years and avoiding MASSIVE LAY-OFFS.
IfI I I I
We think it is important for the citizens of Taylor County to know:
The EQUIPMENT PURCHASES being requested by DMH WILL
INCREASE OUTPATIENT REVENUE the main source of cash flow for
DMH CURRENTLY EMPLOYS approximately 300 PEOPLE (including
full-time, part-time and PRN employees). DMH had a total of 376 full and part-
time employees six years ago A REDUCTION OF 20%.
,. DTJ-Il ha TOTAL ANNUAL PAYROLL of approximately $11 MILLION
DMH has a TOTAL ECONOMIC IMPACT OF $61.32 MILLION on the
area economy, according to a recent "Economic Impact Study" conducted by the
University of Florida.*
WITHOUT A HOSPITAL, RECRUITING QUALITY BUSINESSES
AND INDUSTRY to Taylor County will be tremendously MORE DIFFICULT.
Hospitals, schools and infrastructure are the -first things quality business leaders
and workers consider before deciding to relocate to an area.
The ONE-CENT LOCAL OPTION SALES TAX approved byi voters in
1999 HAS GENERATED MORE THAN $3.5 MILLION in excess revenues
(over what is needed to make the annual bond payment). DMH is requesting these
funds to purchase desperately-needed new diagnostic equipment.
That ONE-CENT SALES TAX (which replaced a one-cent sales tax used
to construct the Taylor County Jail) was pledged for the "PURPOSE OF
PURCHASING LAND, EQUIPMENT, CONSTRUCTING A HOSPITAL
AND SERVICES RELATED THERETO." The funds being requested ARE
NOT ad valorem property tax dollars, but are instead generated by both locals and
out-of-county residents purchasing goods in Taylor County.
THESE FUNDS CAN ONLY BE USED FOR THE HOSPITAL! The law
does not allow these excess sales tax revenues to be used for any other purpose. In
fact, laws limit when and how much the county can pay off each year.
If approved by the County Commission, these excess one-cent sales tax revenues
WILL NOT be used for salaries, recurring expenses, existing debt or any other
expenditures. The funds WILL NLY be used for the purchase and installation of
NEW MRI, CT and/or DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY equipment.
These equipment purchases are NECESSARY for DMH to be competitive and
ESSENTIAL for DMH to provide quality health care close to home for Taylor
County citizens. DMH is losing revenue each day due to equipment being down for
repairs or specialists requesting tests be done elsewhere. If a test has to be done a
second time, insurance does not pay.
Priorto a vote at the COUNTY'S MARCH 17 MEETING, DMH Administration
should present the County Commission with a business plan, the projected cost of
each piece of equipment, as well as the revenues expected to be generated and the
positive potential revenue impact it will have on DMH's finances.
A LOCAL hospital is CRITICAL when YOU have an EMERGENCY and
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. DO YOUR PART to make sure DMH HAS THE
TOOLS IT NEEDS to treat your or a family member when you need it.
Just like our elected County Commissioners and you, we are
concerned about the long-term viability of 0.R lHOSPITAL! We
strongly believe that the purchase of this equipment is necessary in
order for DMH to recover financially and return to profitability.
Sincerely, caring and concerned employees of DMH

mT Keaton Beach
Trout and redfish
bite is excellent!
BY PAT MCGRIFF
One More Cast Guide Service
Boy, the trout were on fire this
past weekend, especially for the
North Florida Gulf Fishing Club
who held their fourth annual
Keaton in March club event
tournament at Keaton Beach
The top nine teams of 27 boats
entered had over 11 pounds of
trout for their legal (one over 20
inches, four under 20 inches) five
fish creel! That's impressive!
Here are the top three teams
and their winning numbers:
#1 13.70 pounds for Tom
and Jackson Keel with Sonny
#2 13.65 pounds for Ashley
Mock, Nicole Christmas and Jr.
#3 12.40 pounds for Robbie
and Hunter Green and Warren
Those were some impressive
numbers for an early March
event especially following a
week of sub-30 degree weather.
Most all the boats caught their
limit of trout and everyone had
a blast fishing Keaton in March.
Most of the fish over 20.
inches were caught in waters
less than two-feet deep on a
myriad of lures. Soft jerk baits
took a bunch of fish as-did hard
jerkbaits. Assassin five inch
shads and Berkley jerkshads
took their share as did Bite-A-
Bait fighters, Cordell Redfins
and similar hard lures.
The incoming tide was the
"bite" this weekend as short fish
dominated the outgoing tide for
most folks who were later to the
party. MirrOlures #51MR and
#52MR series were taking fish
in 4-6 feet as did Assassin five
Cal Beanblossom and Glenn
Foyd of Slyvester, Ga., had a
limit of trout while fishing live
shrimp, Assassin's sea shads and
Gulp under Cajuns in 5 6 feet
of water Saturday.
Dave Malone of Cedar Isle
and Jimmy Edge of LaGrange,
Ga., fished with Edge's Shadee
shads in electric chicken and
several other colors to land a
limit of fish in 2- 3 feet Monday.
David said they fished the falling
tide for their limit.
Plenty of reds were also
landed by the NFGF club and
others as they swarmed folks
fishing shallow near the bars.
Look for the fishing to
improve this weekend as the
warmer weather of late will turn
the fish. on. Look out if the sky
goes overcast as I will slay them

Returns," which picks up Batman's story 10
years after he retired following the death of
Robin. Released in early 1986, several aspects

blockbuster success, "The Dark Knight."

does not include any existing characters in DC
Comics' wide pantheon of crimefighters. Instead,
Moore used his own creations, filling in their.
backstory in a series of supplemental materials:
--including a fake autobiography, newspaper,-
articles and classified military documents.
"Watchmen," the novel and movie, is set in an
alternate 1985, in which, decades earlier, a number
of masked vigilantes took to the streets to fight
crime their own way. In the film, a spectacularly
produced opening credits sequence fills in the
blanks from the original 1930s vigilantes (or
masks, as they're called) to 1985.
We find that thanks to the world's only true
superhero, Dr. Manhattan, America won the
Vietnam War, leading President Richard Nixon to
win five straight elections. All is not right in this
world, however, as growing dissatisfaction from
police departments over the sanctioned actions
of the vigilantes led to a nationwide strike, which
resulted in the masks being banned.
Also, tensions between the USSR and America
are now heating to a boiling point, and the threat
of nuclear war is in the headlines' every day.
Into this chaos, we witness a single murder,
that of Edward Blake, aka The Comedian (Jeffrey
Dean Morgan). Investigating the murder is
Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley), the only active
mask left after the ban. Although Blake's identity
as The Comedian was secret, Rorschach becomes
convinced someone is trying to take out the
former Watchmen, as the masks were collectively
known. As Rorschach continues his investigation,
he relays his concerns to his fellow Watchmen: the
Batman-like Nite Owl (Patrick Wilson), who has
a multitude of gadgets of his own creation; Silk
Spectre (Malin Akerman), the daughter of one of
the original masks who is now in a relationship
with Manhattan (Billy Crudup); and Ozymandias
(Matthew Goode), the self-titled smartest man in
As the threat of 'nuclear war continues to
escalate and Rorschach gathers additional clues,
the "who" behind the conspiracy turns out to be
less important than "why" someone would want
the former crimefighters out of the way.
While many of the original "Watchmen" fans
are now in their 30s and 40s, the book has seen
countless reprints over the past 20 years. In 2005,
Time listed "Watchmen" as one of "the. 100
best English-language novels from 1923 to the
present." It was the only graphic novel to make
So, there were many eyes watching Snyder's
production to see how closely the movie would
stay to the source. In the end result, it's stunning
Show close the movie does portray the graphic
novel, not only in the plot and settings, but also
down to the dialogue, and, in some cases, the
exact same shots.
The only major change--other than material 'cut
for time--is with the ending. Although the movie
ends with the same result, the mechanism through
which it reaches that result is different. Overall, I
was pleased with how they fit it in.
At two hours, 43 minutes, the film is able
to include many of the fan's favorite scenes,
down to a casual conversation early in the story
between Nite Owl and Silk Spectre over dinner at
a restaurant. It's a simple scene, but as a fan of the
comic, it was a reassuring moment to show that,
yes, the' production crew really did care about
keeping it true.
One problem with
watching a movie
based on material
you're very familiar
with, it's hard
sometimes to decide
whether the adaptation
sufficiently explains its
story or if you're just
filling in the gaps with

"Witchmen," t was
pretty confident that it had done its job so that
fans and non-fans alike could follow its complex,
multi-generational story. But I couldn't be sure.
Fortunately, I talked with another friend earlier
this week who had watched the film last weekend,
but has never read the comic. Again, he agreed
with me, saying that he had easily followed the
film's story and felt he had been given adequate
information. Another point for the "Watchmen"
"Watchmen" was always a multi-layered story
with a number of themes prevalent throughout.
One of Moore's original purposes was to take the
whole the entire superhero genre and turn it on
its head, something he never would have been
able to do with the more established characters at
DC. What we get, which is brought through to the
movie, is a "warts and all", look at our heroes. Why
would someone with almost unlimited money
really dress up as an owl and start bloodying the
noses of purse snatchers? What kind of pressure
does the daughter of one of the famous masks feel
to walk, literally, in her mother's shoes? Where do t
you go when you own superhuman abilities begin
to sever your connections to your humanity?
When do the constant horrors you witness
finally take their toll on your already fragile
psyche? Who would be willing to do anything to
shape the future if they thought it would save the
While Moore preemptively wrote off this
movie--his previously bad experiences with

his name not be added anywhere in the credits
and that he receive no money from its grosses
--the story he wrote, in my opinion, has made a
Unfortunately, however, the friends I spoke
with about "Watchmen" had some of the same
complaints about the film that I did. Firstly,
some of the violence in "Watchmen" was totally
gratuitous to the point of being distracting. It
wasn't necessary for the story to see exactly
how much bloody damage each punch delivered,
and it took me out of the story in several scenes.
Also, one of the main points of "Watchmen" is
that without the exception of Dr. Manhattan,
the rest of the Watchmen are supposed to be
regular people who decide to put on masks and
fight crimes. Along with the violence, a lot of the
action is over the top, with our heroes taking very
little damage most of the time. The fact that they
get hurt in the "line of duty" is 'part of what makes
them so interesting.
There were also some pacing issues, and a
few questionable song choices, but overall,
Snyder and his team have created one of the most
amazing and faithful adaptations I can recall. The
entire crew deserves a lot of credit for taking a
work once deemed "unfilmable" and making a
truly rememberable movie.
I went into "Watchmen" with high expectations,
in almost every aspect, it exceeded them.
Note to parents: While this film is based on a
"comic book," is it definitely not for kids. Heed
the rating, which is R for strong graphic violence,
sexuality, nudity and language.
