Fuelwood Permits

Winter is not too far away and many people may want to start preparing, as days are getting shorter and cooler weather is moving in.

The Department of Natural Resources wants to remind residents that 2014 firewood permits are still available.

The cost is $20 for one permit per family and is good for 90 days.

Each permit allows up to five standard cords of deadened down wood from the state forest.

Permits can be purchased at the DNR office in Atlanta or with a mail–in order form that can be found at michigan.gov/fuelwood.

ARMC Provides Online Health Records

Board of Trustees members at Alpena Regional Medical Center discussed a new, digital program allowing patients to see their full medical history.

Patient Portal is a new, online tool inpatients and outpatients can use to access all of their ARMC health information. The portal was introduced in the middle of August, and has since had a steady increase of use by ARMC patients.

Members of the Board are happy with the success of Patient Portal so far, and believe it will continue to gain users, especially since it allows users to access Lab Results, Radiology Reports, and more, faster and more convenient than waiting for a printed report.

Another benefit of the program is that Primary Care Physicians can see the full medical history of their patient through the portal, which may help with future diagnoses and effective medication.

"That's part of the grand plan which is electronic health record, and the connectivity, so that the physicians, whether it be in the emergency room or the family provider... has access to that electronically," said George Smart, Vice-President of Finances and IT services.

Anyone interested in joining the Patient Portal can join by visiting the website below or sign up in person at Alpena Regional Medical Center.
