County Ambulance Service Idea Has Cool Reception Several meetings (with no decision reported) have been held in this area recently regarding a proposed change in ambulance service iij Kossuth county. Present at one of the most recent sessions here were Mayor Bill Finn, City Attorney Russ Buchanan, County Attorney W. B. MacDonald, Civil Defense Director Wayne Keith and Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst. At any rate, it is probable ambulance service will continue as is until about June 1. Before that time, some action will have to be taken to assure the entire area of service. Proposed legislation is now in committee in the Iowa House of Representatives which would give counties authority to operate ambulance services. At present, only cities and towns can do so. One suggestion here is that the county develop a volunteer emergency corps, similar to a volunteer fire department, but rumor has it the board of supervisors isn't interested in operating an ambulance service. Three private ambulance operators, Allen Blake, LuVerne, of Blake Funeral Homes, Bob McCullough ofMcCullough's Funeral Chapel and Charles Hamilton of Hamilton Funeral Home, Algona, have indicated they wish to discontinue ambulance service. Two others, Garry Funeral Home, Bancroft, and Hyink Funeral Home, Whittemore, expect to continue their service. It has been apparent during recent years (during conversations with various ambulance operators by the Upper Des Moines) that it gets more difficult all the time to make ends meet for a private operator in that business. One major problem has always been the difficulty in collecting for services from some persons who needed an ambulance following an emergency. One mortuary when contacted by the UDM stated the new wage and hour law will raise the cost of hiring someone to take telephone calls-and make the ambulance business even more difficult than in the past. Of course, the wage and hour set-up carries with it time and a half pay over 40 hours. Under the proposed legislation, drivers of ambulances would be specially trained and qualified. Some legislators reportedly feel the proposal will die in committee and never make it to the floor of the legislature. In the meantime, more meetings will be held in an attempt to solve the ambulance problem (one which has never before faced county residents) before June 1. New Bancroft Postmaster Donald H. Degen has been appointed postmaster at Bancroft by President Johnson, subject to Senate confirmation. He has been acting postmaster since November, 1965, when Mrs. Flora Bradley retired. The Degens have farmed near Bancroft since 1954 when they moved here from Sioux City. Degan grew up and attended St! Joseph's School at Granville. His wife is the former Ann McGuire of Bancroft.
