     Over the past two years, local optometrist, Dr. Jack Hedrick has become very familiar with the inside of Washington County Memorial Hospital. He’s undergone testing and been treated for several different ailments including a stroke, atrial fibrillation, cervical spine problems and hernia repair.
    “I’ve always had a physician in Salem,” said Dr. Hedrick. “I choose to stay in Salem because of the convenience. Dr. Morgan is my doctor and I’ve always had outstanding care from everyone who has treated me at the hospital, from the nurses, aides, lab and X-ray technicians to anyone else who has helped with my care, I’ve always had a positive experience.”
    Dr. Hedrick’s medical visits began two years ago when Dr. Khan began treating him with a series of epidural blocks for his neck. “I had gone to a pain management physician in New Albany and had blocks previously, but they didn’t work. It was a very bad experience, so I was skeptical about trying again. Luckily, I could tell a huge difference after the first treatment. I was elated; he really did a great job.”

County Council struggles with proposed 2010 budget PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 September 2009 00:00
      The Washington County Council met in regular session on Tuesday, September 8 with all members present.  The minutes of previous meetings and all claims were approved unanimously.
    After quickly dispensing with an abbreviated agenda that included a legal opinion on the make up of the Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeal and agreement to act as agent for the hospital to receive nearly $600K from the state of Indiana, the Council turned its attention to the proposed 2010 budget.
    Depending on whose numbers are to be used, the proposed General Fund must be cut somewhere between $330K and $380K.  According to Washington County Auditor Sarah Bachman, her sources at the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance said that a proposed budget overage of somewhere under $400K would not be out of line.
    Various members of the Council discussed the logic of submitting the current proposed budget.  After exchanges marked by what can only be described as confusion and uncertainty, the Council agreed to call for a joint public meeting with the Board of Commissioners on Wednesday, September 16, in hopes of working out a solution.  
    The Council is required to provide a completed proposed budget for public review and input prior to submitting it to the state.  The public hearing on the proposed 2010 budget is set for Tuesday, September 22 at 7pm.
