ASHLEY D. SWANSON | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Phil de Tooth (William Boehler) and Flossy Dailey (Emma Stump) tie up Dr. Molar (Clark Gibbs), and Nova Caine (Amanda Eastin) after discovering their evil plan during a dress rehearsal June 13. D.K. Molar is set to be performed Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23, at 7 p.m. both nights at the Allegro Wolf Arts Center in Sutton.

Allegro Wolf will present a melodrama this weekend, June 22 and 23, as well as three skits performed by upcoming young actors.

With both days starting at 7 p.m.—with a cash bar and reception hour starting at 6 p.m.—the audience will delve into the world of D.K. Molar, a depraved dentist who steals gold from patient’s teeth and replaces them with fools gold.

However, his new receptionist, Flossy Dailey, begins to notice something amiss within the dentist office, and sets out to find out what and who’s behind it.

Plans set for future of Sutton Community Home

Article Image Alt Text

The vision of the Sutton Community Home has led the facility down a new and positive future, as after several months of examination and discussions about what direction to build the future of the home has finally come to life.

The SCH staff and board have been working hard to battle the financial burdens of drastically reduced Medicaid rates—a large number of residents currently residing at the home are on Medicaid—combined with low occupancy numbers off and on.

In addition, low staffing challenges, at times, have forced the Sutton facility to have to rely on agency staffing, which in many cases costs 50 percent more than workers who are employed by the home.

After months of discussion, members of the Sutton Community Home Board and staff have made the decision to move forward with a plan that will include three different levels of assisted living care.
