House Selling for a Dollar

One dollar will get you a charming, two-story historic brick farm house in Southern Illinois, but here is the catch: before you can move in you have to actually move the house.

The developer wants to build new home in the area of the farm house but before she can, the farm house must be moved, so she is giving the house away at a great deal, to anyone who can move the house.

However, don't go breaking your piggy bank just yet. Preservation experts say moving the 1860s farmhouse will cost you more dollars; millions of dollars.

Neighbors are hoping someone will save this piece of history, but others say the odds of survival are slim and the piece of history will be demolished.

    Madison Co. Emergency Room is covered by ARNP's and PA's seven days a week and sometimes by an MD for one night shifts. The ARNP's and PA's are covered by an MD, not on site at the hospital or in the ER, but via telephone coverage. Is this becoming a nationwide practice? Do patients who go to the ER know that they are not beeing treated for their emergencies by a doctor? How safe is this practice? Although PA's and ARNP's are cost saving for the hospital, what is the ratio between the savings and the potential liabilities for the malpractice insurance this may cause? What is the potential for fraud when filing for insurance charges since PA's and ARNP's are paid lower as opposed to MD visits? Hmmmm.... Just curious....
