REPUBLIC . MAIL yed Wednesday, November U, 1979 The Arizona Republic A17 Nursing Gk? rj) m QI m to Continued from Al L rvJV n tfrrrrrri a T Koory suggested that the county approve the $29.50 rate effective this month or next month, depending on what could be done with the $250,000 in salary savings, and that the county pursue contracts next year. But that proposal was dropped after the nursing home administrators said it was unacceptable. Rowland said that if the contracts cannot be negotiated within the $9.4 million budgeted for nursing home care plus the $480,000, he will suggest changing the county's eligibility requirements for nursing home care. The county pays for the care of indigent patients under income and asset limits established by the state and helps patients who cannot afford nursing home care. Campbell said he was "very disappointed" that the county would consider changing eligibility requirements to meet the financial limitations. Diane Cusack, president of the Board of Health, urged the supervisors to reach an agreement on the issue. She pointed out that last W ML savings from vacancies in several top administrative posts in the Department of Health Services. The action was approved on a 3-1 vote, with Supervisors Ed Pastor, Fred Koory and Hawley Atkinson supporting the decision, Tom Freestone dissenting and George Campbell abstaining. Dr. George Rowland, director of health services, said he expects to have the contracts ready for the supervisors' approval within two weeks, and he believes they will not require more than the additional $480,000 authorized by the supervisors Tuesday. But Campbell warned that the board was "asking for major trouble" by pursuing the contract negotiations with the Dec. 1 deadline only two weeks away because the county could face paying the full rates or moving the patients if the negotiations fail. "We're not going into anything that hasn't been there all along," responded Koory, who added that the county will move patients if negotiations break down and the nursing homes insist on charging their full rates. Campbell and Freestone urged that the board first set a new rate Campbell proposed $29.50 and then proceed with the contract negotiations. But their proposal was rejected.

Solar ponds were developed in Israel during the 1950s, but energy from other sources seemed cheap and plentiful so the concept was put on the shelf. Low-temperature turbines, which Bronicki's firm Ormat Turbines Ltd. manufactures, have a somewhat similar tale. They were developed during the 1950s to generate electricity from low-temperature fluids, such as those that might come from a solar collector. The fluids are used to vaporize a low-temperature gas, such as freon, and the vaporized gas spins the turbine to generate electricity. Bronicki said the turbines were modified in the early 1960s to use diesel or kerosene as a heat source rather than solar fluids and, marketed worldwide. There are 2,500 such turbines now working in 40 countries, he said. The units are sealed, so they require very little maintenance, he added. "Now they are being applied again to solar," he said. In the prototype, a 70,000-square-foot pond is used to run a 300-kilowatt generator. The next step will be to couple a half-square-mile pond with a 5-megawatt generator, the basic unit to be used in the Dead Sea, Bronicki said. The energy potential of a solar pond is measured by its size and depth, said Bronicki. "On the Israeli side of the Dead Sea, we calculate a potential of 2,000 megawatts," he said. "Currently, the total installed generating capacity in Israel is 2,000 megawatts. So this could be a significant development for Israel. "Right now, the priority is making the 5-megawatt unit work during the next three years," Bron-. icki said. "Necessity has given us quite a push."

"I don't think the 60-day period means very much because the Justice Department can come down with an objection any time it wants," he added. A lawsuit by three members of minority groups sought to have last week's primary election postponed pending the Justice Department ruling. But the court let the election proceed after the city said it would isolate the votes of persons living in the-questioned area. The federal suit still is pending, however, with the plaintiffs asking the court to direct the city to establish a ward system. No hearings have been scheduled. NOW $20 OFF!

Bruce Babbitt has recommended three applicants for the post of state revenue director. The committee, which conducted a nationwide search, recommended Franklin D. Aleshire, former Scottsdale city manager who is a consultant; J. Elliott Hibbs, Iowa's deputy revenue director, and William L. Shoemaker, director of the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation. Babbitt is expected to pick one soon to replace Neal G. Trasente, whom he removed as head of the Arizona Revenue Department for alleged failure to carry out departmental reforms promptly. "All three are outstanding," said Roxana Bacon, a Phoenix lawyer who headed the committee. More than 150 applications were received. The three finalists were selected after 10 semi-finalists had been interviewed. Aleshire, 55, is president of the Arizona City Management Association and chairman of the management committee of the Maricopa Association of Governments.
