Reversing Medicaid cut a priority

At 59 years old, Bill Miller is starting to have neck and back problems. Thirty-two years of bending over to check patients’ teeth and gums will do that, he said. Miller is the only dentist in Hill City, a community of about 1,500 people northwest of Hays. He has treated Medicaid patients his entire career, even as reimbursements increasingly have lagged behind the cost of providing care.

4-H gives youth opportunities for long-term relationships

By Michelle Beran
 
A credit card company ran a series of commercials a few years ago that listed the cost of several activities and ended with the related experience as “priceless”. 4-H Youth Development could not function without volunteers. We often think of the county fair as the culmination of 4-H projects and volunteers are certainly visible serving as superintendents, setting up and cleaning up, distributing flyers and much more.
