Plans are not definite, but the committee is thinking of forming the Shelby County Medical Services Corp., a tentative name, according to Sidney optometrist Dr. John Beigel, chairman of the group. If the county is to successfully compete, a corporation is needed to make money available to help new doctors get started, said Dr. Beigel. The new physicians would be expected to later re-pay the corporation, he added.

“It feels good,” said Stauffer, “Especially since my first year we only won three games. But the girls here keep getting better and better.”
