    During the evening hours of Thursday, February 19, many local officers received the call that they all dread. Two of their own had been shot and the suspect was still on the loose.
    The two injured, Jeffersonville Police Department Cpl. Dan Lawhorn and Officer Keith Broady, are now home from a long hospital stay and are still receiving outpatient therapy. Lawhorn was shot in the leg while Broady sustained a gunshot wound to his chest area above the protection of his vest during the shooting at Motel 6.
    The incident inspired the “Operation Vest for Valor” fundraiser.
    Preferred Automotive owner, Troy French, is friends with Broady’s brother, Darin, and was inspired to reach out to the community and create fundraisers so vests may be purchased.

WCMH accepts Lindauer's resignation PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 08 April 2009 00:00
    In a special meeting on Thursday, April 2, the Washington County Memorial Hospital WCMH)Board of Trustees unanimously accepted Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Randy Lindauer's resignation. Lindauer was not present at the meeting and has been on personal leave since the latter part of March. The Board thanked Lindauer for his outstanding service to the hospital during the past few difficult years. When asked if Lindauer would be receiving any type of a severance package, Board President Aaron Lee deferred to attorney Drew Wright. According to Wright, WCMH is  negotiating with Lindauer in an effort to work out an agreement on the severance package.
    In other action, the Board unanimously approved Joe Roche as Interim CEO. According to Lee, Roche, as well as a Chief Financial Officer John Lines, will be at WCMH two to three days a weeks depending on changing conditions. Both individuals are employed by Saint Vincent Health (SVH) in Jennings County. When asked if the executives' services were being provided by Saint Vincent Health free of charge to WCMH,  Lee answered in the affirmative. Wright added that the original letter of intent between SVH and WCMH has been amended to include a provision stating that if an agreement to affiliate in some fashion cannot be reached between the two organizations, then WCMH will be expected to pay for the services of the two executives.
    As a final piece of business, the Board unanimously approved an agreement with Regions Bank that would extend the hospital's line of credit until May 31.

Commissioners reappoint Lee to WCMH Board PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 08 April 2009 00:00
    The Washington County Board of Commissioners met in regular session on Wednesday, April 1; all members were present.  Minutes of previous meetings, payroll and all claims were approved unanimously.
    In an unexpected reversal of their previously stated position, the Commissioners unanimously agreed to reappoint Aaron Lee to the Washington County Memorial Hospital (WCMH) Board of Trustees .  At their last meeting in March, the Commissioners rejected a list of three nominees submitted by the hospital board.  That list contained Lee's name.  At the time, each of the Commissioners expressed concern over the current condition of the hospital and indicated that it would be irresponsible on their parts to reappoint any current members of that board.  However, a request made earlier in the the April 1 meeting by Saint Vincent Health (SVH) representative, Gary Fammartino,  to reappoint Lee apparently persuaded the Commissioners to reconsider their earlier positions.  Fammartino told the Commissioners that Lee has provided outstanding leadership, in general, over the last few years and specifically in the recent negotiations with SVH.  Fammartino suggested that it would not be wise to to change hospital leadership at this time.
