Too long at the fair …

My kids and I look forward to and enjoy the sounds, crowds of people, bright lights and variety of a fair. I insist that the kids eat a meal before we go so I don’t have to buy every treat in sight. My plans never do work out right. And, I guess, what is a fair or carnival without cotton candy, snowcones, popcorn, huge pickles or barbecue sandwiches? You don’t have such things every day.

Fairs are extraordinary. That is what makes them so special. You don’t hear those particular sounds, say, at a basketball tournament. Sports have their own smells, sounds, tastes and atmospheres.

Philip Health Services' branch clinic opens in Kadoka

The doors are open, the doctor is in and patients are being seen.

Housed in the south section of the Kadoka Nursing Home facility (the former Sundet Memorial Hospital), the Kadoka Clinic held its ribbon cutting ceremony Monday, August 1st.

It was a long time coming, with a number of hurdles, but after four months of renovation it is no longer just a dream to have a new clinic in Kadoka.

The Kadoka Clinic is owned and operated by Philip Health Services, which rents the space from the Kadoka Nursing Home Association.

Home Health Services celebrates 10 years

Director Marcy Ramsey (left), Lee Ann Knutson and Jean Calhoon lead team members who cover a 30-mile radius from Philip, offering aid in both home health and home maintenance services.

On August 16, Philip Home Health Services will have served the surrounding community for 10 years since it gained its official certification through federal Medicare.

Director Marcy Ramsey said that her staff will probably not have any large celebration, probably have a little extra chocolate and coffee on hand for anyone dropping by.

Home Health provides short-term care through a number of services in a client’s home.
