The line is open: UAMS and Facebook on the closeout

Posted By on Tue, Jan 8, 2013 at 4:09 PM

Is it only Tuesday? Week seems longer already. Final nights:

* MORE ON UAMS AND THE GOODHAND FAMILY: Melony Goodhand's decision to leave UAMS for a medical center job in Tennessee has been the subject of some discussion here, given the $312,000 she'll receive over the next 12 months for agreeing to be available to answer any questions the campus might have for their former CFO. Another UAMS employee asked what the move meant for the rest of the Goodhand family, particularly her husband, also a UAMS employee. The answer from UAMS spokeswoman Leslie Taylor:

Bob Goodhand has been an employee of Information Technology at UAMS for the last 8 years. He is a project manager involved in the implementation of Epic, our new electronic medical records software. Effective January 1, Bob’s status changed from full-time to part-time. He is working 20 hours a week (at a salary of $50,931) to allow him to complete work that was already in progress. This will allow him to complete configuration of project management tools which will allow for better comprehensive management of the individual application task management tools currently in place for the Epic project. His employment with UAMS will be completed no later than March 22.

I asked if he'd be working in Little Rock or Tennessee.

He is going to be working remotely. It is not unusual to have IT employees who work from locations off campus and even out of state. We have other IT employees both full time and part time who do so.

* 'SOCIAL' MEDIA: KTHV reports on the arrest in Lonoke County of a Little Rock man who shot a woman in the leg on a date arranged after a meeting on Facebook.

* SPEAKING OF SOCIAL MEDIA — JUST IN TIME FOR THE NEXT STORM: Entergy has created an FAQ Facebook page about storms. I haven't looked to see if it includes info on installing a gas generator.

* DEBT REDUCTION: Ezra Klein presents lots more info and graphs on deficit reduction. A lot more has been done already by the Obama administration and Congress than you might know or Tom Cotton or Tiny Tim Griffin of Otto would like to admit.
