Struggling health department asking for more staff

Pinterest Facebook Ector County Health Department Director Gino Solla talks to a visitor in his office.  1 of 3 Ector County Health Department Director Gino Solla looks over a report in his office.  Ector County Health DepartmentOne day last month, Ector County residents seeking preventative care arrived to the county’s Health Department Building to see a sign on the front door: “Clinic closed today.”The clinic at 221 N. Texas Ave. couldn’t open that day, Health Department Director Gino Solla said, due to the department’s only two nurses both being out. Solla said this is the first time in his 15-year tenure as director he has had to close the clinic for an entire day.“I don’t have the license of a nurse that I can grab a syringe and start giving vaccines,” Solla said. “When the nurses are not here, close down the clinic. We’re out of business.”Closures are a recurring problem for the department, often having to close their clinic several hours early due to the lack of staff, and with the amount of people that come to the Health Department’s clinic; the wait can be quite long for those who do come for care. Landgraf staffer resigns following investigation WhatsApp The small staff of the department is the result of several years of budget cuts by county commissioners in a struggling local economy. In 2015, the health department had a budget of $1,695,725. Over a period of two budget cycles, that number was cut down to $1,351,242, around a quarter of their budget.With those budget cuts came staff cuts, Solla had to cut four full-time positions, bringing the department staff down from 15 to 11, including himself. That included two of their full-time nurses, leaving only two left.The primary function of the Health Department is to prevent and contain the outbreak of communicable diseases. Unlike the Ector County Hospital District, which treats people once they become ill, the health department tries to prevent the illness in the first place. Those who come to their clinic are there for vaccine shots, STD screenings, or tuberculosis testing. The clinic is particularly important to those who are struggling financially.“We are the safety net for people that don’t have health insurance or a means to pay,” Solla said. “If someone comes in and says ‘I don’t have the financial resources,’ we waive our fees.”But if budget cuts to the department continue, Solla is worried those functions may not be possible.“I don’t see where we can cut anymore without cutting services,” Solla said. “The commissioners will have to decide if they want to continue to provide clinical services from the Health Department.”And some staff members have been quitting out of frustration with the limited budget, Solla said. A long-term sanitarian, who handles duties such as restaurant and pool inspections, left abruptly around three weeks ago, and the office manager will be leaving the department soon after 26 years of working there.“They’re tired of not being able to give the citizens their services,” he said. “We’re giving them lip service instead of services.”With discussions for the next budget year beginning Tuesday, Solla said he has some proposals for expanding the department he plans to bring forward to the commissioners’ court. He plans to ask the court for another sanitarian position, a part-time secretary, and two more full-time nurses.Solla said he’s hoping that due to the recent increase in oil prices and land value, there will be more revenue available to prevent any further budget cuts.County Judge Ron Eckert said it is too premature at this point to say exactly what will be done to the department budgets, but that options will be explored throughout the numerous budget hearings. Eckert said they have not received any final certified values, but based upon preliminary values, there should be an increase in tax dollars and revenue, but not considerably more.“We haven’t reached the full extent of the boom cycle yet, and there’s catch-up time for values to catch up with the economy,” Eckert said.With the decrease in staff, came an increase in communicable diseases. Health Department records show that from 2011 to 2017, patients seen for sexually transmitted diseases increased from 866 to 1,328. The number of Ector County residents with sexually transmitted infections increased from 558 per 10,000 people in 2012 to 726.3 per 10,000 people in 2017.And with the staff cuts, Solla said they had to turn away around double that amount of patients. Solla attributed this increase in patients to the closure of Planned Parenthood in Odessa in 2011, which provided STD testing and contraceptives.“I believe the Texas legislators made a big mistake when they cut funding to Planned Parenthood,” Solla said, “because Planned Parenthood was our savior in collaborating with us in fulfilling that need.”Solla said he hoped Ector County residents would pass the sales tax assistance district whenever it next comes up for election, which would create a new 1.25 percent sales tax on goods sold in unincorporated Ector County. Officials estimate it would raise around $15 million a year, more than a quarter of the county’s $59 million expenditure budget.“I feel that will help us not only expand, but help us catch up to the growth that the county is experiencing in new residents,” Solla said.

However, new data suggests that the typical mortgage payment homebuyers face is far outpacing the rise in home prices. Andrew LePage, Research Analyst at CoreLogic indicated an 11 percent jump in buyers’ mortgage payments by 2019. The principal-and-interest mortgage payment recorded an upward spike by more than 16 percent, while nationally, the median price paid for a home has risen by less than 6 percent over the past year. LePage pointed out that September 2019 will see a rise in prices by almost 5 percent on an annual basis, according to CoreLogic Home Price Index Forecast. However, some other forecasts project a further rise in mortgage payments homebuyers around the same period next year, he stated. Typical mortgage payment—a mortgage-rate-adjusted monthly payment based on each month’s U.S. median home sale price, is helpful in measuring the impact of inflation, mortgage rates and home prices on affordability, according to LePage. Typical mortgage payments are strong indicators of affordability as “it shows the monthly amount that a borrower would have to qualify for, to get a mortgage for a median-priced U.S. home,” he said.  The U.S. median sale price during September 2018 at $221,697 increased by 5.6 percent annually, whereas a 0.8-percentage-point rise in mortgage rates over that one-year period led to a sharp rise in typical mortgage payment by 16.4 percent. The CoreLogic HPI Forecast anticipates the median sale price to rise by 2.7 percent in real, or inflation-adjusted, terms between September 2018 and 2019. These projections also indicate that typical monthly mortgage payment will record an 8.9 percent year-over-year gain. Quoting an IHS Markit forecast, LePage pointed out the possibility of a rise in real disposable income by 2.6 percent over the next year—a trend that will see homebuyers spending a larger share of their incomes on mortgage payments.  Read the full report here.

Embracing change for the women in leadership positions in credit unions

first_imgChange is inevitable…it’s going to happen whether you are ready or not, prepared or not, happy or not. As you move from one year to the next, it seems as if you blinked and another year has passed. Without change, what will your conversation be next year at this time? Every time something changes, you have the opportunity to grow and learn not only about “things” but also about yourself. As leaders, change will be in front of us every day…ok sometimes hourly. Your job is to look at the situation and decide how change will either be a positive or a negative…even though, we tend to go towards the negative. Personally, I had an AHA moment that I hadn’t thought about it in quite a while because, it caused me to change the way I thought about things and stop being so stuck in my ways, which made me slightly uncomfortable and taught me a few good lessons.  You see, it didn’t have to be my way or the highway, but it did have to be up to my standards, and I wasn’t quite sure that was happening. I oversaw a training project where we would be facilitating a 6-8-hour training in 16 cities in 17 days. I am exhausted thinking about it, but we were 4 teams of 4 going out and getting it done.  On one particular day, one of the trainers from our team was sick and we needed to pull in a trainer from another team who had the day open. We could have done without the extra person, but we knew that each audience deserved the best we could give and we thought having 4 people rotating throughout those hours would be the way to go.  The day started out fine and then it was time for the “new” person on the team to do his part. We all knew exactly how the part should be done and what information should be given out and what the results should look like. As the person in charge, I was ready for anything…except when… what we knew should take place didn’t.  The trainer got up there and didn’t do anything we expected. I was taking so many notes about what he should have done and why and I was not happy at all. He had 2 ½ hours to get that piece of this very dry but very important information out. I had written so many pages of what he forgot and what he missed and what he changed and what he didn’t do that I wasn’t listening to what he did do.  At one point I was beyond beyond and I compared the training to a wedding. Once it starts you have no control of what didn’t go as planned so sit back and watch the show.And that’s what I did. I couldn’t embarrass him and jump up on stage and take over and I couldn’t ask him questions to get him back on MY track. So I listened. When he was done, I realized that he did a great job.  While he didn’t use the stories we were accustomed to, he used his own and he tied pieces together and he was funny and engaging and yes, not only did the attendees learn, but so did I and the rest of the team. If only I had embraced change right off the bat, my level of anxiety would have been at an all-time low instead of ready to burst. The truth is that embracing change in work and life is essential to growing as an individual and as a leader and being a better person than who you were yesterday…but it isn’t easy. And with my blog “Change Is Inevitable, Growth Is Optional” you would think I would know that…but it isn’t easy. Why is it so difficult? It might be because we don’t like the lack of control or the uncertainty of outcomes not being what we thought, or bruised egos, embarrassment or failing. People also seem to hate losing more than they love winning. But, if you don’t learn to embrace change and if you don’t move forward, you will be left behind, and that seems even worse and, definitely harder.So let’s get comfortable being uncomfortable and figuring out a way to embrace change instead of ignoring it.1. Take small action steps. When you get your mind wrapped around the concept of embracing change, the first thing to do to make it less painful is to just take small steps forward. So, find one small thing that you can do at a time, then do it and then, do another. In my example, I might have had a conversation with the new trainer and listened to how he did his training before I pre-judged him after 1 sentence.2. Start with an end goal, work backward and break your goal into small action steps until you can get to the very first one in the path. This is usually something that you can control or do yourself. Once you accomplish that milestone, then you can tackle another. You must be willing to go back in order to move forward. You need that momentum to go forward. It reminds me of slowing down to speed up.  I thought that maybe I should have taken a step or two backwards to allow something new and potentially even better to happen. Again, listening and not feeling like I had lost control. 3. Check your ego. Typically, the biggest roadblock to change is you. Often, there’s little downside other than facing your own bruised ego when you evaluate change. Clearly my ego was having a temper tantrum and I wasn’t ready to hear that someone else might have a better solution or simply a different one.4. Fail correctly. For some reason, most of us were never taught to fail. This is unfortunate because failure, when done properly, is a good thing. It’s required for taking on risk. That is, if you do it the right way. The right way to fail means doing it quickly, inexpensively and never the same way twice. Many times the culture or environment that you are in won’t allow failure and many times, failure is not an option for yourself. Embracing change is really not about failing.  It’s about learning and growing and distributing responsibilities so that you share what you know and are able to rise to the next level. Think about it this way. Time never stands still in real life. It’s not like the movies where characters can freeze-frame and the writer takes the viewer on some unrelated story. In real life, change happens constantly. You can fight it or welcome it. It’s your choice. Change will occur regardless.  So the question remains, why not embrace change? If change is going to happen anyway, fighting it won’t do any good. It’s better to figure out an approach to deal with change that will work for you.Change forces us to be flexible. You must bend and shift to meet new circumstances. It’s your time to decide how to move forward and meet those new situations head on. You will become stronger and that just might include asking for help, a strength you didn’t even realize you had. Through it all opportunities will appear.  They may not be what you had hoped for, or they may be things you had never considered. Be open and remain curious about what opportunities changes will bring. Change is inevitable…growth is optional. 18SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Judy Hoberman Men and women sell, manage, recruit and supervise differently.  Judy Hoberman, creator of “Selling in a Skirt”, shares essential insights about gender differences and how to embrace and use those … Web: www.sellinginaskirt.com Detailslast_img read more

FIFA will defend itself in Trinidad High Court

first_img(CMC) – FIFA has signalled it will defend itself against a legal challenge filed by the former executive of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA), by filing an entry of appearance in the High Court here on Tuesday.Football’s world governing body has retained the Port of Spain law firm of Dr Claude Denbow SC. The entry of appearance was filed by instructing attorney Donna Denbow, with Jerome Rajcoomar listed as junior counsel.Ousted TTFA president William Wallace and his team, represented by Dr Emir Crowne and Matthew Gayle, are challenging FIFA’s decision to remove them and appoint a normalisation committee to run the association’s affairs.The Wallace-led executive had initially taken their case to the Switzerland-based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) but withdrew the matter earlier this month saying they were not likely to get a fair hearing, given some of the decisions CAS had taken in the early stages of the case.With FIFA having filed an appearance to claim, it has 28 days from the May 19 date when it was served with notice of the TTFA’s claim, to file a defence.The local football association is seeking the court’s intervention by way of a declaration that FIFA’s removal of the TTFA executive, which was elected to office on November 24, 2019, is null, void and of no legal and/or binding effect; a permanent injunction preventing FIFA from interfering in, and/or seeking to override the fair and transparent democratic processes of the TTFA and/or from attempting removing the duly elected executive from office; and a permanent injunction preventing FIFA and/or its agents and/or assigns and/or servants from interfering in the day-to-day management of the TTFA, including the association’s bank accounts and real property.FIFA said it removed the executive because of mounting and potentially crippling debt, insisting that the local body faced “a very real risk of insolvency and illiquidity” and urgent action was required.The TTFA stands to be suspended as a result of taking FIFA to the local courts, as Article 64 of the FIFA statutes prohibits member associations from taking internal disputes, or disputes affecting leagues, members of leagues, clubs, members of clubs, players, officials and other association officials to ordinary courts of law.It provides for disputes to be taken for arbitration before CAS or to an independent and duly constituted arbitration tribunal recognised under the Rules of the Association or Confederation.last_img read more

UW women ready to face Washington

first_imgAlthough many Wisconsin teams’ schedules will only heat up over Thanksgiving break, the women’s basketball team is anticipating just the opposite: a break.After a two-game weekend set out west in Washington, the Badgers will have to wait a little bit longer as Washington travels to the Kohl Center for a nonconference matchup Wednesday night.Wisconsin split the past weekend, falling at Gonzaga Friday 62-53 before triumphing at Washington State Sunday 52-44. If it wasn’t for some inconsistent offense in the first game of the weekend, Wisconsin could have swept the pair of weekend games.“To play [one of the] best teams in the country, and lead them by 14 – you gotta finish the game,” head coach Bobbie Kelsey said. “Obviously that team is very experienced and found a way to pull away from us – but I was very proud of them because we’re one of the least experienced teams in the country.”Although Wisconsin struggled to close the game against Gonzaga, UW scored eight points in the final minute to seal the deal Sunday against Washington State. As Washington comes to Madison, Kelsey welcomes an opponent she used to see a lot of dating back to her assistant coaching days at Stanford.Her coaching tenure at Stanford also included a Final Four run, during which the Cardinal matched up against Xavier, the former coaching home to current Huskies head coach Kevin McGuff. Kelsey said she expects her sideline adversary to key on some mistakes the Badgers made last weekend.“You kind of think about what he did then, because you don’t really change a whole lot,” Kelsey said. “He’s going to trap you; he’s going to run off-ball screens.”This comes after Friday’s game, in which Wisconsin coughed up 21 turnovers to a pressing Gonzaga team.The Huskies will likely lean on redshirt senior Kristi Kingma for their press, the only current Huskies player Kelsey said she distinctly remembers coaching in what was then the Pac-10.The 5-foot-11 guard/forward led Washington with 15.6 points per game last season and has scored in double figures in all four of Washington’s victories thus far.One thing Washinton will not bring to Madison, however, is a deep lineup. The Huskies have run with a seven- or eight-player rotation throughout all four games this season, even in blowout victories.The Badgers have spread minutes through nine- or 10-player rotations through their three games, so a possible advantage may be in overall team depth. Senior guard Taylor Wurtz noted an up-tempo game may be the Badgers’ best ally.“A big thing we’re keying on is offensive boards … and just playing good, high-pressured defense,” Wurtz said. “We really want to push the tempo.”Pushing the tempo becomes a more difficult task, considering this will be the Badgers’ third game in just six days, including a pair of flights to and from the state of Washington.Morning practices have seemingly become a regularity for a team that has spent loads of time on the road lately. Although in just her second year with the team, sophomore forward Jacki Gulczynski said she thinks the team has adapted to its hectic schedule, noting it provides a great chance for the team to come together.“We’ve bonded as a team, adding a lot of team chemistry, especially on the road,” Gulczynski said.A chaotic schedule can lead from one game to the next, and scouting opponents tends to take a backseat. At this point in the season, the Badgers are just trying to key on themselves.“We went over their scheme and what they’re going to do,” Gulczynski said. “At the end, we’re just trying to focus on what we’re trying to do, our end.”last_img read more
