The Lord's work

Posted By on Wed, Jul 19, 2006 at 5:28 AM

Ted Suhl, the politically powerful operator of the Lord's Ranch treatment facility in northern Arkansas, got a grilling before a legislative committee yesterday. Stephens Media reports, including protests from the governor that favors provided by Suhl, like a recent jet flight for a political appearance, have no influence on the millions Suhl is making off state contracts. Perhaps not. But scant oversight, questionable admission policies, and exploding costs have to make you wonder about the administration gatekeepers.

Look this afternoon for a cover story in the Times on the Lord's Ranch and the broader issue of mental health care for young people.
