office systems technology and reading By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer At its annual membership meeting last Thursday the Canyon Lake Area Volunteer Fire Department elected new board members and adopted new bylaws for the non profit organization The new board is expected to oppose replacing the parttime fire chief with a fulltime chief which the old board voted to do earlier this year The move sparked a controversy with the Comal County Rural Fire District which voted last month not to renew its contract with the fire department because it was not consulted before the fire department board voted to hire a fulltime chief The fire district is over the volunteer department board of directors and provides funds for the department through a contract with the county Many firemen in the department sided with the fire district saying they like the parttime chief Les Wyatt and want to keep him Ladies and gentlemen welcome to your new fire new board member Dennis Bateman said among applause from the 50plus members of the fire department Under the old bylaws of the fire department the board of directors had nine members and needed five to compose a quorum Wyatt said that members Ratliff and David Thompson could no longer sit on the board because their threeyear terms were up in March and the department never had its annual membership elections because of a lack of a quorum That left two members on the board volunteer fireman William Thomason and Sharron Mackey Last Thursdays membership meeting was called by former Pres ident Mike Chandler before he stepped off the board Thomason started the meeting by reminding the members that they needed to elect three more members to make up a quorum to consider the new bylaws The three members elected were Bateman Dale Dehlin and Bil ly Craft They join Thomason and Terry Wyatt on the new board We want to make the general members active in the fire depart ment and we want to get off to a fresh Thomason said The fire district has been very patient and understanding with us but we need to be held accountable just as they are to Bateman who was one of the gen eral members who drew up the new bylaws went through the 15 article bylaws with the audience The by laws contain a provision which states that five members will be elected It spells out the role of the fire chief and governing operations of the board After discussing the bylaws for over two hours the membership approved the bylaws More people choosing to face illness in their own homes By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer Many people who are facing illness disabilities or death choose to deal with it in the comfort of their own home rather than in a hospital There are two services available to patients that allow them to receive the care they need in the surroundings they want Home Health Care is a wide range of medical and social services including wound care chemotherapy intra venous nutritional support or antibi otics physical therapy psychiatric nursing services and medical social services The services are available seven days a week and 24 hours a day This allows appointments to be set for times convenient for the patient and services can be provided in the patients own home Basically home health care pro vides the medical attention needed in a much more comfortable environment Patients as wellas their families pre fer treatment at said Rachel Friedrich public education coordinator for Nurses in Touch Home Health Physicians must approve a patient being released into home health care Patients qualified for home health care can range from those with limited mobility to those with a terminal ill ness Common patients of home health care are the disabled the elderly those There are a lot of reasons a person would choose home health care given the Rachel Friedrich not fully recovered from a hospital stay those with chronic conditions such as diabetes or arthritis and those with a terminal illness There are a lot of reasons a person would choose home health care given the chance A lot of people think hos pitals are cold and would rather be home where they can be said Friedrich Theres also a cost Hospice is a team approach aimed at helping terminally ill patients when curative treatment is no longer possible or desired The goal of Hospice is to provide comfort and support for the patient and the family and allow the patient to die with some dignity Youve said Ive done all I can do to fight this Now I just want to be comfortable and live happily until 1 Friedrich said To receive Hospice care the patient must have a terminal diagnosis with a prognosis of six months or less The patients medical condition must be confirmed by two licensed physicians Friedrich said the difference between Home Health Care and Hospice is that bereavement and counseling services are provided and there is no longer an attempt to cure the illness She said many patients do not want to enter the Hospice program because they see it as giving up Hospice is seen as giving up by some who want to continue the treat ment The decision to switch has to be made by the patient and the family The patient needs to do what will make them feel good about the dying she said Sesquicentennial photos on display The Sesquicentennial year is almost over and many of the events are a fad ing memory However you still
