CONTRACT, from page 1A elections have been settled, we all have a better sense of hospital finances -- which are looking much more en- couraging," the board can revisit the issue. In the meantime, an exten- sion would at least provide a level of security for Hath- away, he said. Elliott explained he felt September was too soon to make an informed decision, because he wanted to see if the dismal financials of April were an anomaly. (Chief Financial Officer John Nadone reported there had been a significant up- swing in May and June.) Also, Elliott wanted to see if any of the three board members up for. election -- himself, Flanigan and Then -- were replaced. In that case, he felt the community deserved to have the new board members in on the CEO's contract negotiation. Then disagreed with let- ting a new board make the decision on a new contract. Elliott said, however, that was why he wanted to see Hathaway receive the pro- tection that extending the existing contract until De- cember 2011 would afford. Board member John Kim- mel pointed out that the board could, in fact, chose to revisit the new contract is- sue at any time -- "you can always install a new con- tract," he said. Elliott's amendment went to a vote with Elliott, Flani- gan, Satterfield and Kimmel voting for it, and Then ab- staining. There was some procedur- al confusion surrounding the vote, but Satterfield reit- erated what the board had voted for: "Bill's amend- ment would be to reconsider (the new CEO contract) in January and to offer an ex- tension of the current con- tract with new dates, etc., until the end of 2011." Flanigan said if "time and opportunity is changed with regards to finances and all," the board should consider addressing the new contract issue again before January, "so as not to keep Mr. Hath- away waiting." Satterfield agreed, but said Elliott's concern re- garding the hospital's "fi- nancial uncertainty" and the upcoming board election (which could potentially re- place a majority of mem- bers) was warranted. "I think there's some val- ue to acknowledging tle public's right to participate in all of this." Hathaway was visibly up- set by the board's action, but made no comment dur- ing the meeting, and he was unavailable for comment by press time. After the meeting, Satterfield said there had been some question regard- ing "procedural process in order to secure this action," and the board would likely make some "clarification of action taken" later. take your treatment beyond your hairline You trust us with your tresses.

In addition FRC's completion rate is 34.36 percent, which is within the top 10 in the state. When the two num- bers are totaled, Feather River College has a com- bined total for the most re- cent cohort of 70.56 percent, within the top three commu- nity colleges in the state. Student Right-T0-Know refers to a federally mandat- ed publicdsclosure of all colleges completion rate and transfer rate. The intent of SRTK is to provide to con- sumers a statistic of compa- rable effectiveness that they can use in the determina- tion of college choice. All colleges nationwide are re- quired to participate in the disclosure of rates as of July 2000. To determine SRTK num- bers, a cohort of all certifi- cate-, degree- and transfer- seeking first-time, full-time students are tracked over a three-year period. Feather River is well above the statewide averages for com- munity colleges, which are: completion rate 24.78 per- cent and transfer rate 16.69 percent.

Thrall said she was pleased that "for the most part they are retaining all of the current employees and doing business pretty much exactly the same way that they've been doing, which we've been happy with." Perreault commended Byrne for getting a new con- tractor in line with only 90 days' notice from the previ- ous contractor that it wouldn't be continuing into the next fiscal year. He also noted that the new contract called for 150 days' notice on any change so it would be easier next time. Need help REPI NG If it's ing we can'll find semele can. I Lic. #453927 (5 283-2035
