The Bright Side, August 17, 2022

The City of Lake Geneva Fire Department could have an edge over the rest of the county in the near future. Chief Peters is researching the possibility of bringing in more emergency room tools to the scene of serious accidents and emergency calls. The chief is considering the purchase of an ultrasound machine to help patients with internal medical problems. The ultrasound machine would help detect internal bleeding, abdominal injuries, finding difficult veins, fluid around the heart and lungs, along with the cardiac activity. Without this device, and the training needed to operate them, paramedics aren’t always able to determine exactly the proper care an injured or extremely ill patient needs, and this makes it difficult to transfer to the best facility possible to handle the specific needs. Without the machine, it’s almost impossible to diagnose among certain heart issues that require very different treatments.

Living Here, August 17, 2022

Former mayor Tom Hartz and Vandewalle and Associates have very likely conspired to violate the homeowners living on South Street. When Tom Hartz was mayor, before the reign of Charlene Klein, he had this great idea to get a grant from the state TAP grant fund, so that environmentally sensitive and people-responsive projects could be funded. This great thought process and idea resulted in the City of Lake Geneva being given approval for a million-dollar grant. This money was set aside to be spent on a walking/bike path to be put in paralleling South Street, running a mile and a half long from one end of South Street to the other (connecting to paths already there on each end). That money sits in a fund waiting for plans to be approved, and therein lies the rub.

Surprising Stuff, August 17, 2022

The medical mess we are all caught up in. The modern medical experience continues to flow toward discovery, the discovery that it’s becoming a sad adventure for most people. Medicare Advantage is a highway robbery contract designed to steal from older citizens. Emergency rooms ask now for only three things; name, date of birth, and insurance coverage that can be instantly checked. Doctor’s offices, when called for an appointment, have staff who basically ask for the same information and then put you on hold to check the insurance before you can even get an appointment. Some, like a local podiatrist who shall remain nameless, located over there by the BP on Highway 50 near Walgreens, won’t book an appointment with anyone who has any kind of governmental insurance. No Medicare, no community care with the Veterans Administration, and no Badger care either. Bring cash and lots of it.
