Park For Parking Planned For Aiken ByJEANEHALL StattReprter "It will look just like a park, except when a car is parked there," City Manager Roland Windham said today in describing a parking area being constructed behind the Aiken Public Safety Department. The parking area, which will provide 18 diagonal parking spaces, will be constructed of the jumbo type brick, which has openings down the middle. Windham said the brick will be placed on a compacted base with top soil in the openings for the planting of grass. "This parking area was in the original plans for the public safety building," Windham said "But we've just now been able to start construction." The parking area, when completed, will be mowed, just like other planted areas.

It is located in the Pendleton Street parkway. Windham said the type of construction is in keeping with the "Old Aiken" theme of revitalization in the downtown area. "This is a fairly inexpensive way of paving, since it requires only the brick, top soil and labor," Windham said. The parking area was designed by Robert Marvin, a landscape architect of Walterboro, who also designed the landscaping for the public safety building. The construction of the parking area will be done under the direction of John F.

Elliott, a member of the City of Aiken Parks Commission, using city employes. Weather permitting, the brickwork is expected to begin Surviving are his widow, Mattie Mae Sedwick Harley, Augusta; one sister, Harriett Harley, North Augusta; two brothers, Aldria Harley, North Augusta and Andrew Harley, Augusta.

Rain is.predicted for the southern Atlantic Coast region from Virginia to Florida. Cold temperatures are forecast for much of the nation. (AP Wire- photo) this week.

The type of brick and planting to be used in the Aiken parking area is also used extensively in Hilton Head in areas designed by Marvin. In addition to the grass plantings, the area will also contain plantings of small trees or shrubs which will further serve to give the area a park- like appearance. Trees to be used in the plantings will be dogwood and Bar- barypear. Windham said the new parking area will alleviate the parking in parkways that have been occurring on Edgefield Avenue. The parking spaces will be used by persons with business in the public safety building and not for personnel.

Windham said the city plans to rework the park area on Edgefield Avenue, providing at the same time, eight more of the same type of parking spaces as will be in the Pendleton Street parking area.

I think they can understand these things in the administration of the program. Ellis said the biggest complaint he receives from the medical community is the amount of paper work involved in filing Medicaid claims. "More than anything else is the bureaucracy and the amount of book work necessary for them to give us the information we must have if we're to repay them for their services," Ellis commented.

Locally, several doctors expressed the opinion that they would rather revert to a non-government method of handling medical care for low income how he feels about this, Ellis replied, "You just take the millions of dollars that the physicians in this state are getting in total whereas they were getting nothing before the advent of Ellis stated, "Of course, it's their privilege now to five their services to a client if they want to do it." "But," Ellis emphasized, "this is money they weren't getting before Medicaid." The Aiken County Medicaid tab for 1975-76 was $3,129,404.54. This represents medical services of various vendors in the county such as the doctors, dentists, drug stores and other miscellaneous groups. A survey of area drug stores revealed that owners and managers feel much the same way many local doctors do. Too much red tape and too much paper work which result in long waiting periods before reimbursem*nt comes through. Only one pharmacist refused to release the information.

The pharmacist at Eckerds Drugs in Aiken said that because Eck- erds is a chain store, he could not release the information. He referred the Aiken Standard to a regional office. was asked what their average reimbursem*nt is per month. assistant'manager for Revco, also a chain drugstore, said, "We receive about J500 a month." The pharmacist for Bath Pharmacy, William G. Sawyer, said his store averages "about $900 a month." D.W.

Davis, manager of Warrenville Drug, stated that he receives approximately $800 monthly for claims submitted to DSS for Medicaid payment. Gregory Drug's owner, George A. Gregory, said his Medicaid income is only about $300. But, he pointed out, "I have only been open about a year." Gregory said about five per cent of his claims are "kicked out on technicalities." He said he usually resubmits those and eventually gets paid. The owner of two large drug stores in Aiken, who asked not to be identified, said one of his stores does between $5,000 and $6,000 a month in Medicaid.

The owner of another store, who also asked not to be identified, said his store handles about $2,200 in Medicaid each RegaVdless of the prescription or its cost the drug stores' profit on each prescription is $1.90. DSS officials and the owners of local stores stress that Medicaid is a money-losing -proposition for them. Several local owners say they only service Medicaid recipients as a public service. Indirectly, Planned Parenthood of Aiken County also receives small amounts of Medicaid money. Mrs.

Paul D. (Margaret) Weston, director of the planned parenthood unit, said, "We don't get any (Medicaid funds) per se." She explained that Planned Parenthood provides services through the Lower Savannah Health District on "a contractual basis and they channel the money back to us." She said that the amount each month depends on the number of clients they see. "The problem," Mrs. Weston commented, "is that people don't want to tell us they're on Medicaid." She said they average between 15 and 20 Medicaid patients each month. Under Medicaid, clients can receive family planning services, physicals and some contraceptives.

Mrs. Weston said their goal is "to just serve the patients." So far, she added, "we haven't had to turn any away." Even though Medicaid is a federally sponsored program -under the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, each state sets up its own mechanism for dispensing the joint federal-state funds. Therefore, Medicaid differs from state to state with Arizona being the only state without Medicaid. Hospital and physicians care are the top ranking items under Medicaid. In many'staTes, Medicaid also pays for such services as dental care, prescribed eye glasses and other miscellaneous items.

The federal government contributes from 50 per cent (to the richest states) to 78 per cent (to the states with the lowest per capita income) df medical care costs for those eligible. Last year alone, Medicaid paid bills for more than 22 million people. While there are some similarities between Medicaid and Medicare, the Medicare program is an insurance program for almost everybody over the age of 65 regardless of financial status. Money for this program comes from trust funds for insured people. Medicare is a blanket program that does not vary from state to state.

Currently, Medicare, which is operated through the Social approximately 11 per cent of the people this country who are eligible. Some people can have both Medicare and Medicaid. In some cases, Medicaid can pay what Medicare does not pay. For instance, Medicaid can pay the $104 Medicare does not pay in each benefit period for eligible people. Also, Medicaid can pay the first $60 per year of medical care costs and can pay what Medicare does not pay of the remaining reasonable charges for eligible people.

Army To Enroll In Public School PLAINS, Ga. (AP) Amy Carter enrolls in January as a fourth grader at the Thaddeus Stevens School in Washington, D.C., it will mark the first time in seven decades that a presiden'ts child has attended public school. President-elect Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, announced Sunday that 9-year-old Amy will attend Stevens, a 108- year-old school with a predominantly minority enrollment about six blocks from the White House. The last president to send a child to public school was Theodore Roosevelt. He sent his son, Quentin, to Washington's since- demolished Force School from 1904 to 1906.

The town of Salley centered a float entitled "A Chitlin a Day Keeps the Swine Flu Away." After the parade, 22,000 hungry people walked over to the Crescent Cities Vocational School for the real event eating chitlins. Plates of chitlins, pork and beans, cole slaw and bread were served up to the real gourmets.

Those who had not yet cultivated a taste for chitlins, were able, to buy plates of barbequed pork or chicken. Exhibits by local craftsmen had been set up near the school. Novelty items and antiques could be bought as a reminder of the festivities. Chitlta itrnt T-shirts, hamper itkkers or lapel pins were also available. Carnival rides were available for the young.

The day came to a close with a aad. west- era music show ia the school MdHorimn aad a street dance. By the eid of the day, those 22,000 people 'plumb tuckered out' were eating chitlins, dancing and from just seeing old friends.

Department (Continued From Page 1) The meeting was described as going as "smooth as clockwork, "by Hatcher. Aiken attorney, B. Henderson Johnson, served as moderator of the meeting. He described it as one of the most "harmonious public meetings" he had ever attended. "There was a real spirit of cooperation between the old officers and the new officers," Johnson said.

The reorganizing of the Center Fire Department was held due to the Center Fire District, which encompassed six areas, being voted out in a special election held last March. The Center Fire Department was organized in 1965 and became a part-of the Center Fire District in July of 1975. Later, members of the areas represented by the fire district felt they had not been fully informed of all the aspects of becoming a fire district and asked that the election be set aside. This was done by Judge Rodney A. Peeples who ordered the new election last March.

The district was turned down by, 1,306 to 632. The election which first formed the fire district, produced a 396 to 67 favorable vote. The reorganizational meeting was suggested by Judge Peeples in an order concerning the liquidation of assets of the defunct Center Fire District. Other fire departments throughout the area which were once represented by the fire district, have gone back to the original volunteer fire departments which existed prior to the fire district being formed.
