The Bad; the Plainfield Boys after a close struggle succumbed to the semi-pro St. Anthony 66-62. St. Anthony is one of the top teams in the Country. The Cardinals can hold their heads high.
Plainfield a City of nearly 50,000 souls needs its own medical facility. It need not be as grandiose as the MRMC was before closure. Instead it must have a short term acute unit as well as an ER that can take care of the most urgent cases. Included would be an OB unit and a same day surgical suite. Some of the older facility could contain and extended (long term) care section which would be low maintenance. There has to be the capability of emergency major life savings services as well as the normal support diagnostic units.
This briefly is the type facility that JFK fears and do anything to prevent. An empty lot for supposedly a project that will never be built is preferable to a competitor, even one with limited capabilities.
9AM: Read in this morning's papers that Plainfield had to play most of the game without Sears who was injured. More credit to the Cards who were competitive.
