Rosebud Sioux Tribe Sues Federal Government Over ER Closure
Thursday, 28 April 2016 13:48
A Native American tribe in South Dakota has sued the federal government over the nearly five-month closure of the only emergency room on its reservation. The federal lawsuit brought Thursday by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe asks that federal officials be forced to re-open the emergency room at the hospital administered by the Indian Health Service. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the complaint ahead of its official filing. IHS shuttered the emergency department of the 35-bed Rosebud Hospital in early December, two weeks after federal inspectors uncovered serious failures. The lawsuit argues IHS did not give Congress an evaluation of the closure's impact at least a year in advance of the shutdown, as required by federal law. IHS did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment Thursday.
American Legion Family Soliciting Donations for Roof Repairs
Thursday, 28 April 2016 12:09
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.
