American Legion Family Soliciting Donations for Roof Repairs

The American Legion Family, a 501C3 non-profit organization, needs your help. The Legion Family is involved in multiple community projects every year, all paid for by donation. The current building on Main Street is in need of a new roof. During storms the roof leaks, typically causing a flood inside the club and damaging the interior of the building. On May 13th at 10:15 am, representatives from the American Legion will be on the KVSH Comment program to host a radio-thon to raise money for building repairs. Approximately $30,000 is needed to replace the roof and fix interior damage. Please support the American Legion family by calling in on May 13th, or by calling Monty at 402-322-1151 at any time. The American Legion family thanks the public for their support.

Reservation Hospitals Could Be Privatized

The management of an embattled hospital on the Rosebud Indian Reservation could be privatized under a proposal from the federal agency responsible for the facility.  The Indian Health Service is suggesting the privatization as part of a plan to significantly improve the hospital's quality of care.  The agency and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have until Friday to reach a last-chance remediation agreement. Without an agreement, the hospital won't be allowed to bill the government for services provided to Medicare- and Medicaid-eligible patients after May 16.  Leadership from both agencies discussed a draft of the agreement with tribal leaders Tuesday. The proposed privatization comes in addition to agency's ongoing effort to find a third party to manage the facility's shuttered emergency department.

Topics discussed included alcohol and substance abuse, lack of access to mental health and support services as well as labor force and housing.

The partnership operates the Headstart school program and community food pantry located at the city gym building.
