Unlike cold fronts, warm systems have an upward direction, or northerly push, as they cross the United States from west to east. Some come in from Northern California and up as far as Washington. Those coming in to the north usually cross with a southerly tendency until they reach the Chicago area, and then slant upward and pass over New England. Some coming in over California slant downward toward the Gulf and then move up the east coast. Others, which never cross into the United States, come out of the Caribbean and move up the east coast. Then there are the lows which cross in on the west coast, moving northeast. They may cross into the country from New Mexico to Oregon, and usually pass out of the country along its north- ern borders, between eastern Montana and New England. The main route of these lows is the Great Lakes region. The Southeastern states, generally speaking, and except for coastal areas, are off the beaten track of these sys- tems. Sheriff sells nursing home The Ridgeview nursing home lo- cated at US 81 and 23rd Street in Belleville has been sold by the Repub- lic County sheriff to satisfy a judge- ment which resulted from a civil court case dating to 2000. An attorney for the plaintiff in that case submitted the winning bid of $89,000 for the now closed nursing home. Schlicht was awarded the judge- ment after his firm failed to received payment for a new roof installed on the nursing home several years ago. Schlicht was also the head of a com- pany which had managed the nursing home for Kansas Health Care System and that company's owner, Bob Gilkeson. At that time the nursing home was known as the Lutheran Home. The case seeking repayment for the roof was one of several complicated civil trials involving the rmrsing home. Gilkeson announced earlier this year he .planned to close the facility and the patmnts were moved to other facilities. Work hrd and complain less.
