Independent accounting firm BKD came to the Platte Valley Wednesday evening to discuss projected revenue and expense streams for a critical access hospital in Saratoga. The numbers presented show a hospital operating in the red. The financial outlook may not be as bad as the bottom suggests, though.

  1. I love listen to Bigfoot radio all the time. But I really like the morning show with Jim. However this comment is a kudos to the radio station for playing the National Anthem, “Star spangled Banner”. In these times of political madness. It is a breathe of fresh air to here it at any time. Thanks Jim for keeping the patriotic feeling going ever day. It kind of reminds me of my younger days staying up late and the TV station would sign off with the national Anthem. God bless America..
