Andy was up to hunt, and had drawn a cow tag, but for Andy it was the thrill of the hunt and no elk to take back home with him. Bub and Judy were both hunting deer, and Bub got his buck and Judy her doe. Judy has especially enjoyed days when she can stay home and make cookies with Claira, one of her neighbor's children.

Connie Hornyak enjoyed attending the play "Mamma Don't Fly" with Lavonne received a phone call from a girl who identified herself as Lavonne's granddaugh- ter. The girl proceeded in telling Lavonne that she had gone to Mexico with friends for a funeral and on the way to the airport the police pulled over her friend's car. She said the car was searched and the police found drugs and now the granddaugh- ter needed money to be sent to bail her out of jail. Lavonne was smart and questioned the fact the girl didn't sound like her granddaughter and asked her to give her father's name. The girl gave a name, but Lavonne didn't buy it and hung hip replacement. She says she's being a good girl and not complaining, but we all know the pain she is overcoming and wish her well. Daughter, Barbara Kightlinger of Elko, NV, is still with her. Grandson, Robert Kightlinger, and his son Isaiah, came up from Middleton for the weekend to do some hunting.

I spoke with Colleen van Winkle this morning about our Medicare enrollment fair, and she said that appointments are wide open right now, which is a good thing if you want to make an appointment, but bad if we don't get more interest, as we will have to cancel the fair. She said that she will let me know how things are progressing. She thinks that part of the reason there is a lack of interest is that there are only two programs available in this area. One is True Blue Advantage, which has risen to $93 dollars a month (a 55% increase over last year) and True Blue which will now be $142 per month in addition to the $96 dollars already deducted from your SS check for Medicare. There is one more that is being offered, but it has had a below 3 star rating for more than 3 years and Medicare isn't recommending them. So there you have it. I asked why the rates had gone up so much, and Colleen replied that she thought it was because of the way Medicare reimbursed. In more rural areas they reimburse at a lower rate than in large metropolitan areas, and they weren't willing to spread the cost from the larger areas to cover the rural areas. This is maddening to me. Our "Rural Doctor's" charge just as much as urban Doctor's and hospitals, why should there be a difference in what Medicare pays? It makes no sense to me. On another front I read where Medicare will begin to cover home health for people with debilitating and chronic illnesses. This is important because before, home health used to be only available if your condition was going to improve, now people with Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's disease, MS, Stroke, Heart disease, diabetes etc., where there is no chance of getting better, will be able to stay in their homes longer with the help Of home health care. It's time to vote again on Tuesday November 6th. If you need a ride to the polls, give me a call here at the center 257-3358. I will start picking people up at 10 a.m., so give me a call if you need a ride to the polls which, if memory serves me correctly, is at the Washington County fairgrounds exhibit hall this year. Our food pantry for this month was pretty meager. We were basically sent some soups, noodles and dried beans, q-hey said that the warehouse was pretty bare. Peg Tiedemann who. runs the pantry said that November's pantry won't be until the 29th which is the week after Thanksgiving. I haven't gone out to see if there is anything left, but I'm sure that if there is a need, I could set you up with some pinto beans. Out next shopping trip to Ontario will be on November 13% and there is a sign up sheet on the front table, or you can call me here to reserve your spot on the bus. Our Thanksgiving meal will be on Tuesday, November 20th, and we will be closed that following Friday November 23rd. November's foot clinic will be on November 26th and Pat Flores tells me that in January, the cost of the foot clinic will raise from $15 to $20. I hope you have a great week, and remember to vote, it's your duty and privilege to do so. her friend, Judy Green, in the week past. The play was held in Weiser, and they really enjoyed it. This past Saturday, Connie attended the health fair in Midvale, but discovered why you don't arrive late. She was able to get her mammo- gram done which was the most important thing.

Ardis has been busy with parent/teacher conferences at school and helping with the Rush Creek Stampede over the weekend.
