INDEPENDENCE — An attempt by ambulance services in Montgomery County to have a county subsidy restored to a 2 mills was denied by county commissioners on Monday.
On July 21, commissioners agreed to reduce the county ambulance subsidy, which is appropriated to ambulance services in Coffeyville, Independence, Caney and Cherryvale, in the 2009 budget from 2 mills to 1.5 mills. The commission was able to cut the mill levy by one-half of one mill because of higher property valuations in Montgomery County, meaning that the 2009 mill levy would generate more income at 1.5 mills than at 2 mills in 2008.
At 1.5 mills, the ambulance subsidy is expected to generate $734,564 in 2009. The current 2008 county budget has the ambulance levy at 2 mills, which is generating $602,263 for the four ambulance services in Montgomery County.
While city leaders said they appreciated the additional revenue, they wished to have the mill levy restored to the 2-mill levy because of the rising cost of fuel, equipment and supplies.
“The costs of providing an ambulance service are far outweighing the income we’re getting from local and county taxpayers,” said Jim Wilhelms of the Coffeyville EMS Service, who also said that Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements for emergency services continue to be cut.
Wilhelms pointed to a Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement schedule, showing the amount of money that the federal government will provide for a patient’s emergency care. For example, a person undergoing cardiac arrest on an ambulance will require the use of a chest monitor device, which has a $30,000 price tag. The federal government’s reimbursement on a per patient basis is about $75.
Trey Cocking, Cherryvale city administrator, appealed to the commission to publish the county’s proposed 2009 budget with the ambulance subsidy restored to 2.0 mills. When the commission has its public hearing concerning the 2009 budget on Aug. 5, the commission can decide at that time to lower that ambulance subsidy to 1.5 mills or have it placed at 2.0 mills for the 2009 budget year. The commission cannot increase that levy above 2.0 mills.
“I know it’s easy for you to sit there and say, ‘Hey, we’re cutting your levy but giving you more money’,” said Cocking. “But we desperately need that levy to be restored to 2 mills. Between the four ambulance services in Montgomery County, we’re already experiencing a $300,000 loss.”
However, plans to restore the ambulance subsidy to its full funding did not find any favor among a majority of the commission.
“That is not my intent,” said commission Gene Tucker regarding Cocking’s plea to restore the full 2.0 mills.
“Mine either,” echoed commission chairman Billie Lewark-Wood. “We will publish the 2009 budget with the 1.5 mills. My suggestion is that you work with the 1.5 mills for one year and let us know how it works.”
Commissioner Tony Fowler did not say anything during the discussion.
The leaders of the four ambulance services said after the meeting that dipping into local tax levies — which is the dominant source of revenue for local ambulance services — may be the only way they can receive more income for their ambulance programs.
In 2002, then-commissioners Rudy Taylor, French Hey and Lee Mattix agreed to raise the ambulance levy from 1.0 mills to 2.0 mills because of a new fee structure implemented by the federal government as well as reimbursement cuts from Medicaid and Medicare. Raising that levy to 2.0 mills was effective for only one year, however the ambulance levy had been maintained at 2.0 mills since that time.
Commissioners suggested that the four ambulance services return to the commission in 2009 with proposed budgets on how their ambulance subsidy would be used.

Buried in Elk City’s Oak Hill Cemetery is the grave of a woman whose past is centered around the deaths of 53 Union soldiers during the Civil War.
Her name was Martha Ferguson, and she died in Elk City in 1901. However, some 35 years before death, she lived in Kentucky with her husband, Champ Ferguson. It was Mr. Ferguson who had a deep hatred toward the Union cause — so much so that he became a cold-blooded serial killer. He was arrested and convicted of killing 53 Unionists, and he eventually was hanged for his murderous deeds.
Professor Brian McKnight of Angelo State University wrote a story about the life of Martha Ferguson. You’ll enjoy reading it on page A5 of the July 17th Montgomery County Chronicle.

CANEY — Enrollment in Caney Valley schools will be open to out-district students until Sept. 22, USD 436 Board of Education members determined Monday.
The board voted 5-1 to accept Superintendent Danny Fulton’s recommendation to continue the district’s policy for open enrollment. Enrollment in local schools will remain open to out-districts until Sept. 22, which is the day when schools in Kansas certify their enrollments with the Kansas State Department of Education.
Voting in favor of the measure were board members David Deal, Tim Rigdon, Suellen Holtzman, Debbie Morrison and Sherry Rackliff. Opposing the measure was board member David Young. Board member Jack Kopfman was absent from Monday’s meeting.
Out-district students must reapply for admission to USD 436 each year and must sign a contract with USD 436 saying that the student will adhere to all district policies. The student must also meet all academic criteria and not have a history of poor behavior or discipline at other school districts.
Should the acceptance of out-district students create a financial burden on USD 436, then the board at that time will
In other business transacted at Monday’s meeting, the school board voted 6-0 to grant 3 percent pay hikes to school faculty, thereby bringing the base salary to $32,445. Additional money was also granted to a faculty member’s single insurance plan.

CHERRYVALE — The president and vice president of the USD 447 Board of Education will serve in the positions for the 2008-09 year without the full support of the board.
At Monday’s monthly meeting of the school board, board president Lance Carter was re-elected to his position as board chief on a 4-3 vote. Board member Sharon Wadman was chosen to serve as vice president on a same vote.
Board members Lance Carter, Sharon Wadman, Cody Smith and Gina Booe voted in favor of both measures while board members Tina Cunningham, Michelle Loganbill and Bruce Thornton voted against the measures.
The board typically selects the board president and vice president on unanimous votes (although only a majority vote is needed). Board members, including the three dissenters, did not say anything regarding their votes.
Prior to Monday’s school board meeting, the Montgomery County Chronicle received a copy of an e-mail sent to all board members from board president Lance Carter. In the e-mail, Carter openly asks the board to reappoint him to the position of president and to name Wadman as vice president.
The Montgomery County Chronicle checked into the legality of a governmental official to use e-mail to solicit votes prior to that vote being made public.
A story in the July 17th edition of the Montgomery County Chronicle details the Chronicle’s search into the legality of the e-mail and what governmental trade groups say is permissible. The story appears on page A1.

CANEY — Two Caney residents were arrested late Tuesday night, July 8, after a marijuana growing operation was found in a local home.
Rick Pell, police chief, said Tim and Teresa Ingram were arrested in their home at 110 E. Third following the execution of a search warrant. Pell said an anonymous tip from a citizen alerted the Caney Police Department to the marijuana cultivation operation in the Ingrams’ attic.
Pell described the operation as “sophisticated” because of the volume and arrangement of equipment used in the growth of marijuana plants. The equipment included a water circulation system that recycled the water used in the plants’ growth. Various fertilizers and other plant growth-related chemicals were found in the attic as were several growing lights that were set up on a timing device to provide the optimum amount of light.
Two rooms in the attic were used in the operation. One room started as an incubator for the marijuana seeds while a second room contained more mature plants. Dried marijuana leaves were found throughout the attic and throughout the house, including in the kitchen and freezer.
Several hand-written notes on the wall of the attic revealed some of the ratios of chemicals used in the cloning and/or fertilization of the marijuana plants, Pell said.
Other drug paraphernalia was found in a detached garage, Pell said.
The street value of the confiscated marijuana was estimated between $150,000 and $200,000, Pell said.
“This was definitely a large-scale operation – very sophisticated,” he said.
Upon entering the home, police discovered Tim Ingram in his bedroom reaching for a gun in a dresser. Law enforcement officers were able to nab Ingram before he was able to clutch the weapon in a clothes drawer.
Two children in the home were taken into protective custody following the Ingrams’ arrests, and Pell said the Ingrams would likely face several charges, including child endangerment and possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Formal charges are expected to be issued against the couple later in the week.
Pell said police officers and other law enforcement officers involved in the arrests and investigation were troubled to find marijuana pipes and marijuana leaves sitting next to various children’s articles, including markers and coloring books, on a coffee table in the Ingram living room.
“I think that pretty tells the story of this family,” he said.
Members of the Coffeyville Police Department and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department assisted the Caney Police Department in the arrest of the Ingrams as well as the follow-up investigation.
“This is the second major drug bust we’ve had in Caney in as many weeks,” said Pell, noting that a methamphetamine laboratory was discovered in a South McGee Street home two weeks ago.
Pell urged citizens to contact the Caney Police Department concerning suspected drug activity in their neighborhood.
