BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comThe Economic Development Advisory Board is focusing their energy on bringing economic development education to the region. Jeff Hendry, executive director of the North Florida Economic Development Partnership, visited the Economic Development Advisory Board on Wednesday with an offer to assess the economic hotspots in the area. NFEDP is the designated regional organization that represents the economic development interests for the 14-county RACEC, rural areaa of critical economic concern. Hendry said the mission of the organization is threefold, to promote economic assets for the region, recruit big businesses as well expand existing businesses and to work as a liaison between the Department of Economic Opportunity and Enterprise Florida, an organization that works to facilitate job growth statewide. Hendry told the board they would benefit from the involvement of his organization because of their ability to successfully research and secure grants. Florida has some of the most complex state incentives that are out there, Hendry said. Hendry invited the board to a pilot seminar for Economic Development Academy targeted towards business leaders. Hendry called the seminar an economic development 101 and said it would be a highly interactive course. Board member and Florida Power and Light representative Jeff Simmons announced an educational seminar funded by FPL and Florida Gateway College for elected and appointed officials. Dale Boyette of Boyette Strategic Advisors, a nationally known consultant in economic development and site development, will speak at the seminar. According to Simmons, his specialty is working in the area of public policy and working with incentive packages. Not only does he work with the entities that we are looking to attract to bring jobs here, but hes also got a lot of experience in working with economic development organizations and municipal, county, state and local governmental entities, Simmons said. Simmons called the seminar, Playing to Win in Economic Development, a kickoff seminar for the NFEDPs Economic Development Academy. It is an invitation only event that will be held in the Florida Gateway College media center on June 11. We are going to be promoting it and getting the word out to all elected officials throughout our region, Simmons said.

Scott refuses guns ban at convention By MITCH STACYAssociated PressTAMPA Florida Gov. Rick Scott has rejected a request from the Tampa mayor to prohibit the carrying of guns in downtown during the Republican National Convention this summer because it would infringe upon sacred constitutional traditions, according to a letter released Wednesday. Concerned about the politically charged atmosphere on the streets outside the convention hall, Mayor Bob Buckhorn wrote to Scott Tuesday asking for an executive order that would temporarily override state laws allowing people with concealed weapons permits to transport firearms downtown. The Republican governor fired off a letter to Buckhorn later Scott SCOTT continued on 3A13 charged in hazing case at Florida A&M By MIKE SCHNEIDERAssociated PressORLANDO Thirteen people were charged Wednesday in one of the biggest college hazing cases ever prosecuted in the U.S., accused in the death of a Florida A&M University drum major who authorities say was mercilessly pummeled by fellow members of the marching band.

He then sorted fruit and put it in boxes and bags at a packing plant.Former Wisconsin chief to step into Martin caseAPPLETON, Wis. A former Appleton police chief will step into the middle of the Trayvon Martin case in Florida. Richard Myers has been appointed interim police chief of Sanford, Fla. Myers will begin his job in Sanford at the end of the week. Myers was Appletons chief for nearly 12 years and left in 2007 to head the police department in Colorado Springs, Colo. He retired last fall. Sanfords current chief, Bill Lee, stepped aside from his job to let emotions cool after Martins death. The 17-year-old was fatally shot in February by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who claimed self-defense. The lack of an arrest for 44 days led to nationwide protests about the handling of the racially-charged case.Santa Rose County deputys home burglarizedMILTON The Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Office is investigating the burglary and arson of a deputys home in northwest Florida. Authorities say Lt. Chris Watson and his wife were out of town when the home was robbed on April 21. It was then set on fire, which caused extensive damage.

Watsons patrol car was vandalized and his personal car was stolen. A $5,000 reward is being offered by officials for information leading to the arrest and conviction.

The Tuesday evening blaze at Tyler Perry Studios in southwest Atlanta will be recorded as undetermined, Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin J. Cochran said in an emailed statement. The intensity of the fire in the area of origin consumed any evidence that would lead to a cause of ignition, Cochran said. There were no reports of injuries from the blaze that began shortly before 9 p.m. Tuesday and burned through the exterior facade of a large building, Atlanta fire spokesman Capt. Jolyon Bundrige said. It was all in flames, Dorothy Ware, who lives in a high-rise apartment next door to the studio complex, told The Atlanta JournalConstitution. Flames shot as high as nearby trees that stand about as high as a six-story building, Ware said. The building started popping, Ware said. Whatever the fire was hitting, was blowing up. There were plenty of sparks coming over here where we are. More than 100 firefighters responded to the four-alarm blaze. Perry whose films include Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Why Did I Get Married? and Daddys Little Girls was at the complex Tuesday night and spoke with Cochran. The studio said Perry thanked Atlanta firefighters for their quick response and limiting the damage. We are grateful that there were no injuries, and that 99 percent of the damage is limited to the backlot facade, the statement said.Attorneys for daughter, husband try to settle Gabors care fightLOS ANGELES Zsa Zsa Gabors daughter and husband are attempting to settle a dispute over the 95-year-old actress care and finances outside of court, attorneys told a probate judge Wednesday. The two sides will meet with a retired probate judge in late June to try to mediate their issues without the need for a lengthy court fight. Gabors daughter Constance Francesca Hilton has asked that a conservatorship be created to oversee the actress medical care and ensure that her assets are being properly protected. The petition is opposed by Frederic von Anhalt, Gabors husband of 25 years and her caretaker. Hilton appeared for a brief scheduling hearing Wednesday but did not speak.PBS plans documentary on history of Latino AmericansNEW YORK PBS will air a sixhour documentary series on the history of Latinos in the United States.

Orlando hotel following a performance against a rival school. While the most sensational hazing cases have typically involved fraternities, sororities or athletic teams, the FAMU tragedy in November exposed a brutal tradition among marching bands at some colleges around the U.S. The death ... is nothing short of an American tragedy, said State Attorney Lawson Lamar. No one should have expected that his college experience would include being pummeled to death. Eleven defendants were charged with hazing resulting in death, a felony, and misdemeanor offenses that all together could bring nearly six years in prison. Two others face misdemeanor charges. It was not immediately clear whether those charged were all students or whether they included faculty members or others involved in the road trip. By Wednesday afternoon, two students were in custody at the Leon County jail in Tallahassee: Rikki Wills, 24, and Caleb Jackson, 23. Both are charged with felony hazing resulting in death. Wills, who was also drum major, declined comment when reached by phone. No working phone number was available for Jackson. The names of the 11 others have not been released. Jackson was serving probation for a felony battery charge, according to state and local records. He was arrested in 2009 by Tallahassee Community College police for battery and resisting without violence and arrested again by Tallahassee police a year later, according to county jail records. Champion had bruises on his chest, arms, shoulder and back and died of internal bleeding, Lamar said. Witnesses told emergency dispatchers that the drum major was vomiting before he was found unresponsive aboard the bus. The prosecutor gave no motive for the beating. But witnesses said Champion might have been targeted because he opposed the routine hazing that went on in the marching band or because he was gay, according his familys attorney. Legal experts had predicted more serious charges, such as manslaughter or seconddegree murder. Champions mother, Pam, said she was glad charges were brought but disappointed they werent more severe. I thought it should send a harsher message, she said. Lamar said prosecutors didnt have the evidence to bring more serious charges. The testimony obtained to date does not support a charge of murder, in that it does not contain the elements of murder, he said. We can prove participation in hazing and a death. We do not have a blow or a shot or a knife thrust that killed Mr. Champion. It is an aggregation of things which exactly fit the Florida statute as written by the Legislature. Hazing in Florida was upgraded to a felony in 2005 following the death of a University of Miami student four years earlier. Chad Meredith was drunk and died trying to swim across a lake at the behest of his fraternity brothers. No charges were filed, but a civil jury ordered the fraternity to pay Merediths parents $12 million. Champions death has jeopardized the future of FAMUs legendary marching band, which has performed at the Grammys, presidential inaugurations and Super Bowls and represented the U.S. in Paris at the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution. FAMU, based in Tallahassee, has suspended the band and set up a task force on curtailing hazing. Hazing has long been practiced in marching bands, particularly at historically black colleges like FAMU in the South, where the band is often as revered as the football team and members are campus celebrities. Much of the hazing reported at FAMU has involved students trying to get into certain cliques within the band, and it has typically included punching, slapping and paddling. Solomon Badger, chairman of the FAMU board of trustees, said the school is doing everything it can to eradicate hazing. He said of the charges: I hope this wraps its arm around everything we have been plagued with the last six months. Richard Sigal, a retired sociology professor at the County College of Morris in Randolph, N.J., who holds anti-hazing workshops at schools, said he could not recall another hazing case with so many defendants. Most cases dont result in criminal charges, and those that do typically end in plea bargains with little or no jail time, Sigal said. Champions parents have sued the bus company owner, claiming the driver stood guard outside while the hazing took place. The company said the driver was helping band members with their equipment. The lawsuit described two types of hazing that took place on the bus. In one ritual, students ran from the front of the bus to the back while other band members slapped, kicked and hit them. A student who fell was stomped and dragged to the front to run again. In a ritual known as the hot seat, a pillowcase was placed over the students nose and mouth and he or she was forced to answer questions. If the student gave the correct answer, the pillowcase was removed briefly; a student who supplied a wrong answer was given another question without a chance to take a breath, the lawsuit said. Tuesday, denying the request in no uncertain terms. Scott said banning firearms in downtown Tampa would infringe on citizens constitutionally protected rights to legally arm themselves. Scott wrote that while he shared Buckhorns concern about violent anti-government protests and other civil unrest, it is unclear how disarming law-abiding citizens would better protect them from the dangers and threats posed by those who would flout the law. It is at just such times that the constitutional right to self-defense is most precious and must be protected from government overreach, Scott wrote. I am confident the many federal, state and local law enforcement agencies focused on the RNC will fully protect Floridians and visitors, without the need to resort to sweeping infringements on our most sacred constitutional traditions. Buckhorn, a Democrat, told reporters Wednesday he was disappointed but not surprised. I believe that there is no reason to have a concealed firearm in downtown Tampa that week, Buckhorn said in a statement. And, to be clear, I am far less concerned with those who have concealed weapons permits than the ones who may somehow acquire a weapon and use it to create mayhem....These are extenuating circumstances and should be treated as such. Scott, who was elected with tea party support and endorsed by the National Rifle Association, has made it clear about his stand against any gun-control efforts. One of the bills he signed into law after this years legislative session prevents doctors from asking patients about gun ownership. Doctors had urged a veto, contending that it would violate the doctorpatient relationship. For the convention, Tampa city leaders have already proposed a host of banned items (lumber, hatchets, gas masks, chains and super soaker water cannons) but they are prevented from outlawing concealed guns. Buckhorn had said the state law has made the city look silly, particularly because officials can ban water guns but not real ones. Tampa wants to ban those items within a wide Event Zone, which includes a protest area with portable toilets, water, a stage and a microphone for protesters. Outside that area, people will be allowed to march down an official parade route as long as they have a permit. The exact location of the protest zones and security perimeter will be decided later. Members of a group called the Coalition to March on the RNC said they plan to speak out against the limitations at a Tampa City Council meeting Thursday. The guns issue is more complicated in Charlotte, host city for the Democratic National Convention. The city in January adopted an ordinance allowing it to set up extraordinary event zones designated areas where people wont be allowed to carry backpacks and other items. The city wanted to ban guns in those zones. State law, though, allows people to carry concealed weapons unless theyre at a parade or protest. That makes it unclear exactly where and when people are allowed to carry guns. The Republicans will gather for the nominating convention at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa Aug. 27-30, and the Democrats will follow a week later at Charlottes Time Warner Cable Arena. The Secret Service has banned civilians from carrying guns inside the arenas.SCOTT: Refuses to ban handguns at this summers RNC convention in TampaContinued From Page 1A ASSOCIATED PRESSFlorida State Attorney Lawson Lamar, right, announces charges against 13 people in the hazing death of Florida A&M University drum major Robert Champion during a news conference in Orlando Wednesday,
I n 10 days, I traveled to five states (six, if you count Nevada, where I live) in three time zones, to speak at five, count em, separate events. For some people -politicians and touring musicians and wanted felons on the lam -this might seem purely routine. I am not one of those people. Nor do I know any of them personally. But I will say this: Whoever they are, wherever they roam, I hope they remem-ber to carry change for vending machines. Late at night, when things close up tighter than last years stretch pants, quarters are your best friends. I spoke first in Bristol, Tenn., at an awards ceremony for community volunteers, and the next day, at the public library in Bristol, Va. It was 34 degrees, with snow flurries, and I had not taken a jacket. Or socks. In Abilene, Texas, I spoke at the 25th anniversary of Disability Resources Inc., a won derful organization that provides housing and other services for developmentally disabled adults. It was 103 degrees, and I was wearing wool. Finally, I spoke in my home state of North Carolina, at a pair of fundraisers. At one event, someone posed a question that stumped me. Id been talking about the way things were when I was growing up, how folks went to church, families gathered for dinner and children played tag instead of texting on cellphones. The question, in effect, was this: What can we do to ensure that the lives of our children and grandchildren will be enriched, not diminished, by technology? The best answer I could think of was a story Id heard about a woman who insisted that cell phones and other gadgets had to be dropped in a basket at the door until dinner was over. Sunday morning, I put on all my new socks, packed up my umbrellas, checked out of the hotel and began driving south from Mocksville to Landrum, S.C., to spend a week visiting my sister and other family. To drive down I-85 wouldve taken three hours, more or less, but Id had my fill of freeways. So I got off the big-rig beaten path and picked my way over winding, country roads. I wish you couldve ridden with me. Carolina is green most all year round, but in spring, it turns a paler shade with buds of new growth, offset by bursts of creamy-white dogwoods and neon-pink azaleas. I passed countless houses in which families had apparently gathered for Sunday dinner, spill ing over onto porches and into yards, where children ran laugh ing, chasing each other. What can we do to ensure that the lives of our children and grandchildren will be enriched, not diminished, by technology? I still dont know the answer. But I do have a little more hope. T he Obama adminis-tration announced two weeks ago that it would renomi-nate Republican Commissioner Kristine L. Svinicki to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, but it has yet to act. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, refuses to say whether he will bring up her nomination for a vote. Apparently, Ms. Svinickis membership is getting black-balled. By law, the minority party in the Senate picks two com-missioners of the five-mem-ber NRC, while the White House chooses the other three, including the chair-man. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, submitted Ms. Svinickis name to the president for renomination in December 2010 so it could be wrapped up well before her term expires in June of this year. Background and ethics checks were con-cluded quickly. After inexpli-cable delay, the White House privately committed to move on Ms. Svinicki in January but then went radio silent until Mr. McConnell worried about the impending expiration of her term lambasted the apparent effort to hold her back. Confirmation fights are common enough, but whats not is a public campaign by the majority to keep someones name from even being sent to the Senate for debate and a vote. Mr. Reids willingness to come out publicly against Ms. Svinickis very nomina-tion points to collusion with the White House to kick the only female commissioner off the team. More damning are persistent allegations that Mr. Reids former staffer, NRC Chairman Gregory B. Jaczko, doesnt play well with girls. Before Mr. Jaczko was chairman, Ms. Svinicki was confirmed unanimously by a Democrat-controlled Senate in 2008, with members of both parties singing her praises. A nuclear engineer with indus-try experience, she served out her term with distinction and was on track to be given another until she helped blow the whistle on persistent bully-ing by Mr. Jaczko. Along with her fellow commissioners, Ms. Svinicki signed an October let-ter to then-White House Chief of Staff William M. Daley plead-ing for help with Mr. Jaczkos outrageous and worsening behavior since assuming the chairmanship. After the let-ter leaked to the public late last year, all five commission-ers were summoned before Rep. Darrell Issas House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Testimony of his peers revealed that Mr. Jaczko is prone to continued outbursts of abusive rage, ranting at the staff, raging verbal assault and inspiring panic attacks in subordinates, particularly women. This was on top of an inspector generals report that mentioned staff complaints about Mr. Jaczko creating an intimidating work environ-ment. In the face of such evidence, Mr. Jaczkos defense that hes just passionate about safety is pretty weak tea. If Mr. Jaczko backed by Mr. Reid is allowed to have his way, the NRC will become his personal He-man Woman-Haters Club. Republicans need to step up and force Ms. Svinickis nomination so she can keep her job. After all, the best way to defeat bullies is to stand up to them. DemocratsHe-manWoman-Haters Club ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW K ill millions here, kill millions there, and pretty soon you are talking about a brutal system that does not work. That was pretty much the way of things in China under the collectivism-worshipping phi-losophy of leader Mao Zedong, himself worshipped to this day though his philosophy has been partly tossed out. But just partly.The Communist Party is still running things and is still auto-cratic and cruel even as it has allowed relatively free markets enough wiggle room to make China a major economic power. So whats next? The question has produced all kinds of answers, from mul-tiple predictions of great power and wealth to some of a great leap backwards. A new compli-cation is the escape from house arrest of a blind dissident aided by many others at enor-mous risk. The story of Chen Guangcheng, now ensconced at the U.S. Embassy, highlights human rights abuses and the willingness of some to put their lives on the line to end them, and comes side-by-side with other revealing news. There is, for instance, the arrest of Bo Xilai, a populist, high-living party chief about to move still further up the lad-der until revelations disclosing, among other charges, that his wife may have played a role in the murder of a British visitor. The party is going to junk this career, but are members going to look hard at a system said to create princelings unanswer-able to anyone except each other, and then just sometimes? We will see as the people react. The Chinese hardly have a free press, but they do have the Internet, and as much as offi cials try to cripple parts of it, it is getting more and more gabby, including numerous discussions about Bo. Information of some kinds is death to tyranny. The Communists cannot be happy. Other worries for the party:-For all the economic improvements, hundreds of millions still live in rural pov-erty, village governments are corrupt, there is no privately owned land and the country experiences literally thousands of uprisings, demonstrations and riots. Just as some insist China cannot handle freedom, others say more will need to come soon if the nation is to keep up its economic growth. If the Communist Party stays in power without significant reforms, it is argued, prosperity may recede as expectations rise and more unrest develops, all of this producing chaos of a kind only the worlds most populated nation can experience. Millions would be stuck in awful conditions of desperate want and the United States would be hurt, too. Though many deny it, trade with a bus-tling, hustling China means we are better off, too. I am among those who have not forgotten the tele-vised events at Tiananmen Square when some rolled out a Goddess of Liberty statue look-ing remarkably like our own Statue of Liberty. The tanks soon rolled in, killing hundreds, and that glorious moment in 1989 evaporated except in the sad but hopeful sense of some of us that there is a very real Chinese hunger for liberty. Other reasons to want the Communists out of power or reformed? They are internation-ally irresponsible, as in refusing to help keep nuclear weaponry out of the hands of Iranians, and a possible military threat down the road. No expert can tell you what is going to happen, and I cer-tainly cannot, but the dissident episode is one more warning that change in China is sorely needed.

BY E-MAIL: email@example.com T he one-year anni-versary of Osama bin Ladens death has brought out the worst in President Obamas supporters. The foot-ball spiking and victory danc-ing has spun out of control. However, the more liberals hype Mr. Obamas supposed role in the process, the less rel-evant he seems to be. The Obama re-election campaign has come under fire for questioning whether presump-tive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney would have ordered the bin Laden mission. Recent revelations about the operation show it wasnt exactly a profile in cour-age for Mr. Obama. According to a memo from then-director of the Central Intelligence Agency Leon Panetta, obtained by Time mag-azine, the most critical deci-sions were delegated to Adm. William McRaven as the head of Joint Special Operations Command. The timing, operational decision-making and control are in Adm. McRavens hands, Mr. Panetta wrote. All Mr. Obama did was approve the risk profile, the broad framework of the opera-tion. Had things gone wrong, the buck would have landed on Adm. McRavens head. The premise behind the notion that the bin Laden raid decision was a gutsy call is that Mr. Obama would have paid a political price had the mission failed. Some liken it to the 1980 Desert One Iranian hostage-rescue-mission fiasco that harmed President Carters re-election effort. This is false. Had the bin Laden takedown failed, there would have been no political price because no one would have known about it. The mission would have been just another of the many secret government operations kept under wraps. Because there was no downside risk at least not to Mr. Obama personally the deci-sion cannot legitimately be called gutsy. Politically, it was a gimme.

ASSOCIATED PRESSRepublican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney applauds as he listens to his wife Ann, at a campaign stop in Chantilly, Va., Wednesday Romney stumps for small businessBy KASIE HUNTAssociated PressCHANTILLY, Va. Kicking off his Virginia campaign, Republican Mitt Romney said Wednesday hell do the opposite of what President Barack Obama has done to help the economy. His wife, Ann, chipped in by appealing to women voters in a key region of a state both candidates will fight over until Novembers election. What I would do? People ask me, What would you to get the economy going? and I say, Well look at what the presidents done and do the opposite, Romney told a group gathered at a warehouse in northern Virginia. Romney also mocked Obamas recently unveiled slogan: Forward. Forward is his new slogan, and its like, forward, what, over the cliff? Romney joked Wednesday night with donors who gathered at the Ritz Carlton in Pentagon City, just outside Washington. Romney was in the Washington area to raise money and hold a series of meetings at the Republican National Committee, where hes working to integrate his campaign with the national party apparatus. He planned a meeting Wednesday with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. Priebus and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell introduced Romney at the evening fundraiser, the first such event that was opened to media coverage. Only two reporters were given access to Romneys 20-minute speech to donors, and no television cameras or photographers were allowed inside. The northern Virginia suburbs of Washington are a region of a key swing state that will be critical for Romney. Obama won Virginia in 2008 after backto-back Republican victories by George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004. Romney aides say driving up Republican turnout in this area of the state could make a difference for the former Massachusetts governor. The campaign moved Iowa operative Sara Craig, partially credited for Romneys stronger-than-expected performance in the Iowa caucuses, to Virginia to run the state in the general election. The campaigns recent days have been marked by foreign policy issues, with the anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden. On Wednesday night, Romney made reference to Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng, the blind activist who sought asylum at the U.S. embassy in Beijing, saying that Chen chose the American embassy because the country represents freedom. But Romneys campaign largely returned Wednesday to familiar themes of the economy and jobs. He painted small businesses as heroes of the economy and said legislation Obama signed to regulate the banking industry has ended up hurting smaller institutions. Theyve gotten bigger; and the small community banks are the ones that have been most hurt, Romney said. Adviser recounts Edwards wifes reaction to affairBy MICHAEL BIESECKERAssociated PressGREENSBORO, N.C. A former adviser to John Edwards recounted Wednesday how the former presidential candidates now-deceased wife indignantly confronted her husband, baring her chest in front of staff members the day after a tabloid reported that he was cheating on her. During a session that saw Edwards adult daughter flee the courtroom in tears, Christina Reynolds described how a very upset Elizabeth Edwards stormed away from her husband, then collapsed in a ball on the pavement outside a private airplane hangar. Reynolds and another woman guided the anguished wife into a nearby ladies room to compose herself, but she soon returned to the private hangar to again confront her husband. In front of several staff members, the woman who had endured grueling treatments for breast cancer took off her shirt and bra, exposing her chest. You dont see me anymore, Reynolds quoted Elizabeth Edwards as screaming. He didnt have much of a reaction. As staffers scrambled to cover up Edwards wife and huddle her into a car, Reynolds heard the Democratic candidate use a cell phone to call his wifes doctor to ask for help. Edwards then boarded a waiting jet and took off for his scheduled appearance in South Carolina, Reynolds said. She testified that Elizabeth Edwards had known about her hus bands affair with Rielle Hunter before The National Enquirer made it public in October 2007. Hers was the most stirring testimony of the day at Edwards trial on corruption charges, as prosecutors worked to build a timeline of the affair and efforts to cover it up. Shortly before Reynolds began her account of what happened that day at the Raleigh airport, Edwards turned to his daughter Cate, who has been seated in the front row for much of her fathers trial. I dont know whats coming, Edwards was heard saying. Do you want to leave?
BY R. ALONSO-ZALDIV ARAssociated PressWASHINGTON More than 3 million health insurance policyholders and thousands of employers will share $1.3 billion in rebates this year, thanks to President Barack Obamas health care law, a nonpartisan research group said Thursday. The rebates should average $127 for the people who get them, and Democrats are hoping theyll send an election-year message that Obamas much-criticized health care overhaul is starting to pay dividends for consumers. Critics of the law call that wishful thinking. The law requires insurance companies to spend at least 80 percent of the premiums they collect on medical care and quality improvement or return the difference to consumers and employers. Although many large employer plans already meet that standard, its the first time the government has imposed such a requirement on the entire health insurance industry. This is one of the most tangible benefits of the health reform law that consumers will have seen to date, said Larry Levitt, an expert on private insurance with the Kaiser Family Foundation, which analyzed industry filings with state health insurance commissioners to produce its report. Kaiser is a nonpartisan information clearinghouse on the nations health care system. Still, health insurance is expensive, and $127 may not even pay a months worth of premiums for single coverage. And the insurance industry says consumers should take little comfort from the rebates because premiums are likely to go up overall as a result of new benefits and other requirements of the law. The net of all the requirements will be an increase in costs for consumers, said Robert Zirkelbach, spokesman for Americas Health Insurance Plans, the main industry trade group. Given that health care costs are inherently unpredictable, its not surprising that some plans will be paying rebates to policyholders in certain markets, Zirkelbach added. But the Kaiser report said the rebate requirement may be acting as a brake on the industry, discouraging insurers from seeking big premium increases to avoid having to issue refunds later and face possible criticism. The new law has provided an incentive for insurers to seek lower premium increases than they would have otherwise, the report said. This sentinel effect on premiums has likely produced more savings for consumers and employers than the rebates themselves. The study found the largest rebates will go to consumers and employers in Texas ($186 million) and Florida ($149 million), where Govs. Rick Perry and Rick Scott have been among the staunchest opponents of the federal law. Both states applied for waivers from the 80 percent requirement and were turned down. Hawaii is the only state in which insurers are not expected to issue a rebate. Heres how the rebates break down nationally: More than 3 million individual policyholders will reap rebates of $426 million, averaging $127 apiece. These are consumers who are not covered through an employer and buy their policy directly. Consumers in Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Arizona are most likely to be eligible. Insurance companies must notify policyholders, and the rebates are due by Aug. 1. Some companies have already begun to pay. In the small-employer market, plans covering nearly 5 million people will receive rebates totaling $377 million. Employers do not have to pass their rebates on to workers, and can also take them as a discount on next years premiums.

Now the experts say theres strong evidence that both habits may help prevent the disease from coming back. New guidelines issued Thursday by the American Cancer Society urge doctors to talk to their cancer patients about eating right, exercising and slimming down if theyre too heavy. Thats not something most doctors do, said Dr. Omer Kucuk, an Emory University oncologist who has researched the effect of nutrition on prostate cancer. Theyre focused on surgery, chemotherapy or other treatments for their patients, he added. Usually the last thing on their mind is to talk about diet and exercise, Kucuk said. Cancer society officials have long encouraged healthy eating and exercise as a way to prevent certain cancers. They and others have tried to spread that gospel to cancer survivors as well. Indeed, the cancer society has a certification program for fitness professionals who work with cancer survivors. But until now, the group didnt think there was enough research to support a strong statement for cancer survivors. Hastine Reese, a breast cancer survivor, says she began to exercise because her husband not her doctor pushed her. Besides being good for her health, he thought it might help pull her out of the depression that followed her diagnosis and double-mastectomy. When youre first diagnosed with cancer, you go into a dark place, said Reese, as she finished a one-hour exercise class this week at DeKalb Medical Center in Decatur, Ga. Exercise has changed that. Im coming into the light, and its getting brighter and brighter, she said. Being overweight or obese has long been tied to an increased risk of several types of cancer, including cancers of the colon, esophagus, kidney, pancreas and in postmenopausal women breast. But there hadnt been much evidence on the effects of diet and exercise for people who had had cancer. The last five years saw more than 100 studies involving cancer survivors, many of them showing that exercise and/or a healthy diet was associated with lower cancer recurrence rates and longer survival. Most of the research was on breast, prostate and colorectal cancer. The evidence is more meager when it comes to other cancers, including the deadliest kind, lung cancer. Also, most of the work involved observational studies, which cant prove a cause and effect. Still, the volume of research was compelling. Weve got enough data now to make these recommendations, said Colleen Doyle, the organizations director of nutrition and physical activity. At least two other medical groups have strongly recommended exercise and healthier eating for cancer survivors, but the cancer societys new guidelines are expected to have much greater impact. Its the nations largest cancer charity in both donations and the number of volunteers, and it funds more cancer research than any other non-governmental agency. There was a time when cancer patients were thought of as gaunt and dying souls. Many cancers were diagnosed at a late stage, after the disease had ravaged the body and caused weight loss. But better screening and treatment has made early diagnosis of cancer more common and survival more likely. Today, more than two-thirds of cancer patients live at least five years. The ranks of cancer survivors have grown, with more than 12 million Americans identified as cancer survivors. Meanwhile, obesity has boomed. More than twothirds of U.S. adults are now considered overweight or obese. The guidelines recognize that for some people just eating enough food is a priority, and that diet advice can vary during treatment. The cancer society also notes that some people may be too weak at times for vigorous exercise. But experts say that even modest activities, like lifting soup cans while watching TV, can help. Women seem to take to exercise and diet recommendations more readily than men, or to push their spouses to follow the advice, some doctors said. Most of Reeses classmates were women. I find women to be very, very proactive, said Dr. Allen Lawhead, a gynecologic oncologist at DeKalb Medical Center. Men, we traditionally go back into our man cave and hide. Lawrence Genter, a survivor of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, was one of three men in Reeses class of about a dozen. Im here because of my wife, he said. For another cancer survivor, exercise came easy but eating healthy was a challenge. During chemotherapy, nausea is common and food can seem unappetizing. The key thing is to eat period whatever you can get down and keep down, said Bob Falkenberg of Alpharetta, Ga., who was a marathoner and long-distance cyclist before he was diagnosed with leukemia. What did he eat during chemo? Mexican food. Hamburgers. I had people bring in pizza at one point, he laughed.Above: Motivational bracelets are seen on the wrist of cancer survivor Susan Morris, 65, of Decatur, Ga., as she talks with her exercise group after a class, in Atlanta in this April 25 photo.

Report: Rebates from health care law will top $1B
BY DENISE LAVOIEAssociated PressWEST BRIDGEWATER, Mass. Steve Wohlen lay on his front lawn, blue, unconscious and barely breathing, overdosing on heroin. His mother ran outside, frantically assembling a pen-like canister. Her heart pounding, she dropped to her knees and used the device to deliver two squirts up her sons nostrils. Within minutes, his eyes opened, color returned to his face, and he sat up brought back from a potentially lethal overdose by a drug commonly known by its old brand name, Narcan. The drug, widely sold under its generic name, naloxone, counteracts the effects of heroin, OxyContin and other powerful painkillers and has been routinely used by ambulance crews and emergency rooms in the U.S. for decades. But in the past few years, public health officials across the nation have been distributing it free to addicts and their loved ones, as well as to some police and firefighters. Such giveaways may have saved more than 10,000 lives since the first program was started in 1996 in Chicago, according to a survey by the Harm Reduction Coalition, a national group that works to reduce the consequences of drug use. Opponents say that making the antidote so easily available is an accommodation to drug use that could make addicts less likely to seek treatment. The objections are not unlike those raised decades ago when addicts were first issued clean needles to curb the spread of AIDS. But Wohlen and his mother see things differently. I just didnt want to be that mother standing next to that casket, Linda Wohlen said. Supporters of the distribution programs say getting naloxone into drug users homes saves lives that might otherwise be lost waiting for an ambulance. The question has always been: How can we get people treated before they die? If an overdose of the drug is taken at home, you wont have enough time to get that patient to the emergency room before respiratory depression leads to death, said Dr. Russell Portenoy, chairman of pain medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York. The problem has become more urgent: Heroin overdose deaths in the U.S. nearly doubled over the last decade, from 1,725 in 1999 to 3,278 in 2009, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. During the same period, deadly overdoses from opiate-like drugs, including painkillers, have nearly quadrupled, from 4,030 to 15,597. Naloxone works by blocking certain drug receptors in the brain. It has no effect on alcohol or cocaine overdoses but can be used against such painkillers as OxyContin, Percocet and Vicodin. Normally available only by prescription, it is issued to people like Linda Wohlen through 50 programs in more than 188 locations around the country, including Baltimore, New York and San Francisco, according to the survey, published in February by the CDC. Thousands of people have been trained to use injectable and nasal spray forms of the drug. Other countries are also distributing the drug to the public, including Britain, Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan. Most of the U.S. programs are run by state or local health departments and addiction support groups. If youve ever talked to a parent who watched their kid overdose, you wouldnt wonder why we are doing this, said Hilary Jacobs, deputy director of the Bureau of Substance Abuse Services in Massachusetts, where state officials began a distribution program in 2007 that they say has saved about 1,300 lives. The state has spent about $841,000 issuing free naloxone, each dose costing the Public Health Department $16. In New Mexico, which has one of the highest drug overdose death rates in the country, health officials estimate the statewide naloxone distribution program that began in 2001 has counteracted 3,000 overdoses. In Wilkes County, N.C., an Appalachian area with an alarmingly high rate of prescription drug deaths, a nonprofit organization called Project Lazarus has taken a slightly different approach: It persuaded doctors to prescribe naloxone in tandem with painkillers to certain patients. The practice, along with an all-out education campaign, has been credited by the organization with reducing overdose deaths 69 percent between 2009 and 2011. 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY MAY 3, 2012 8A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2012 Page Editor: Xxx, 754-xxxx8AHealth Accepting New PatientsMedicare, Blue Cross and most insurance plans accepted, worker compensation Specializing in adult medical care including: Accepting New Patients SOUTHERN INTERNAL MEDICINEVisit our website at www.SouthernInternalMedicineLC.com386-719-2540 Allison B.

Tigers to compete in state championship By BRANDON FINLEY firstname.lastname@example.org Columbia High will be represented in the 4X100 relay at the FHSAA Class 3A state track meet at the University of North Florida. The team of of Rakeem Battle, Trey Marshall, Cornelius Montgomery and Zedrick Woods will rep resent the Tigers beginning at 4 p.m. on Friday. The Tigers finished with a time of 42:33 to qualify for the state meet but are look ing to beat that time in the championship. We want to run a 41 flat, By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com The road to a state cham pionship usually begins with one of the areas domi nant teams. Fortunately for Columbia High, they have an unusual first-round playoff game. The Tigers travel to Middleburg High at 7 p.m. today to take on the Broncos in the first round of the FHSAA Class 6A playoffs. The Broncos had an unusual regular season fin ishing with a 7-13 record that included winning the District 3-6A tournament to qualify for the state play offs. Middleburg will likely start pitcher Jeb McLendon in the first round of the playoffs. McLendon led the Broncos to a 5-4 win against No. 1 seed Leon High in the district championship with a no-hitter. Middleburg was plagued by five errors, but were able to overcome the fielding mistakes. Columbia will send Kellan Bailey to the mound, who has yet to suffer a loss this season. Bailey was equal ly impressive during the Tigers district tournament appearance. The senior had a com plete-game performance with five strikeouts and two hits to lead the Tigers into the playoffs with their opening-round win against Atlantic Coast High. Columbia won the game 6-0 behind Bailey (8-0). Bailey sports a 0.00 ERA for the season, has 65 strikeouts and has allowed only 20 hits in 41 innings. The Tigers will also have Alan Espenship and Jayce Barber available in relief. Espenship didnt give up an earned run in the regular season and Barber regis tered a respectable 3.27 ERA during the regular season. Barber issued 28 strikeouts and Espenship issued 13 in only 16 innings. The key for the Tigers playoff run will be the pitch ing, however, as Columbia has struggled from the plate this season. As a team the Tigers are only batting .230 and are led by Blaine Courson, who is the only Tiger batting over .300 for the year with a .354 aver age. Levi Hollingsworth leads in the power catego ries with 15 RBIs and four home runs for the season. Columbia would face the winner of Stanton Prep and Leon with a win against Middleburg.

It took us a long time to get back here, Battle said. Its good to represent the school and bring back the tradition knowing that we have two and three more years to do it. Columbias main competition looks to be Lincoln High, which won the state-qualifying meet, but Marshall believes that the Tigers can prevail. Weve beat them before, he said. We can do it again. ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this Nov. 27 file photo, former San Diego Chargers grea t Junior Seau smiles during his induction into the Charg ers Hall of Fame during a halftime ceremony of an NFL football game in San Diego. Police say Seau, a former NFL star, was found dead at his home in Oceanside, Calif., on Wednesday after responding to a shooting there. He was 43.Junior Seau found dead at California homeAssociated PressOCEANSIDE, Calif. Former NFL star Junior Seau was found dead at his home Wednesday, authori-ties said. Police Lt. Karen Laser confirmed the death but released no other details. U-T San Diego reported that a 911 call came from the home at 10 a.m. Seau was a standout linebacker with the University of Southern California before going to the San Diego Chargers, whom he led to the Super Bowl following the 1994 season. Everyone at the Chargers is in complete shock and disbelief right now. We ask everyone to stop what theyre doing and send their prayers to Junior and his family, the team said in a statement. Seau remained with the Chargers until 2003 and went on to play with the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots before retiring after the 2009 sea-son. In October 2010, Seau survived a 100-foot plunge down a seaside cliff in his SUV, hours after he was arrested for investigation of domestic violence at the Oceanside home he shared with his girlfriend. The woman had told authorities that Seau assaulted her during an argument. There was no evidence of drugs or alcohol involved in the crash and Seau told authorities he fell asleep while driving. He sustained minor injuries. Seau spent parts of 20 seasons in the NFL, including 1990-2002 with his hometown Chargers. He led them to their only Super Bowl appearance, was voted to a team-record 12 straight Pro Bowls and was an All-Pro six times. He amassed 545 tackles, 56 12 sacks and 18 interceptions in his career.
DEAR ABBY: While standing in a serving line at a restaurant, a man com-mented to my wife about her weight. She was very upset. My take was, Dont talk to strange men. Later, I wondered whether I should have confronted the guy, slugged him or waited for him in the park-ing lot. As a young man I was prone to rash actions. I would like to think in my golden years that I have outgrown this tendency. Still, Im not sure I handled the situation correctly. I want my wife to be confi-dent that I would come to her defense. Please advise. -TEXAS TOM DEAR TEXAS TOM: Although as a young man you were prone to rash actions, as a mature one you gained the ability to control your temper. Had you confronted the boor, the situation would have escalated and you could have wound up in the pokey charged with assault. Im advising you that you were correct to do nothing. The man is lucky your wife didnt serve him a fist sandwich. A less-er woman might have. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: When my husband, Jeff, and I mar-ried, we drew up a medi-cal proxy and health-care directives should future incapacitation arise. Jeff is now terminally ill with brain cancer and has about five months to live. Over the last two years he has been through four surger-ies, 25 doses of radiation, countless doctors appoint-ments, physical therapy and enough pills to fill a steamer trunk. I had to quit working because Jeff is now my full-time job. As his illness progresses, we have discussed placing him in a hospice. He demands that I lift, jerk and pull him in and out of bed. When I can no longer do this, he wants me to install a hoist. He needs assistance eating, dressing, bathing, using the toilet and is in a wheelchair. Jeffs tumor is growing, causing pressure and affecting his mental attitude. Hes impatient, demanding, selfish and nasty. Im caring for him at home because its his home and I am his wife. At what point do I put him in a hospice facility without his family calling me a witch and Jeff kicking and screaming to be let out and return home? -END OF MY ROPE DEAR END: Please accept my sympathy. Your husband is sick and in pain, probably frightened and the cancer may have affected his ability to think rationally. If you havent discussed this with your husbands doctor, you must. It may not be necessary to place Jeff in an in-patient facility because many terminally ill patients can receive the same care in their homes. However, it will take a referral from a doctor, certifying that your husband has six months or less to live. Much of the cost is covered by Medicare, and most insurance also covers it. For your sake and his, you should contact the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. It can help you find a hospice pro-vider. The toll-free phone number is 800-658-8898 or log onto www.nhpco.org. Because youre afraid of criticism from Jeffs family, tell them that he -and you -need them to step in and help with his care because it has become more than you can handle alone. If they agree, it will give them precious time with him. If not, theyll be in no position to criticize you. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): A happier atmosphere will develop if you get to know your colleagues bet-ter. Forming an alliance with someone you feel has similar goals will help you bring about reforms that lead to greater efficiency and profits. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Volunteer to do some-thing nice for someone and you will enhance your reputation. Research an area of interest and you will find a way to incorpo-rate it into your plans. An old idea, look or trend can be brought back to life successfully. +++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Diversify, and you will come up with something special. Love is in the stars, and making romantic plans will pay off. A little extra attention to your home will result in added comfort and efficiency. Protect your assets and the people you love. +++++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): A change of plans may not suit you, but instead of making a scene, make whatever alterations are necessary and go about your business. Dont waste time trying to convince someone to do things your way. Give others freedom and space. ++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Protect your position, reputation and status. Not everyone will be support-ive, and some may even try to make you look bad. You will overcome any opposition if you keep your story straight and live up to your promises. ++++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take the path that offers the most in return. Dont waste your time try-ing to win someone over who isnt interested in contributing to your cause. Check out new locations that will make you recon-sider your options and your direction. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Share your feelings, and concentrate on rela-tionships that are impor-tant to you. Make personal alterations that will add to your appeal and boost your confidence. The way you handle others will deter-mine how far you advance. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Secrets will not help you get to the bottom of a situation that is caus-ing you grief. You have to address issues head-on if you want to be able to move forward. Revenge and jealousy are a waste of time. Focus on success. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Network, socialize and interact with people who share your interests. A partnership you develop will enable you to further your ideas and plans. Both personal and professional changes can and should be put into play. ++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Dont let anyone put demands on you or your time. You have to give your undivided attention to the projects and people who can benefit you most. Home improvements should be made that add to your comfort and improve your health. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Dont agree to do things you dont want to do. Someone you love will help you recognize what you must do to stabilize your life. Change is required, but it doesnt have to cost you. Moderation is your ticket to advancement. +++++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Disappointment is likely if you count on someone. Do whatever needs to be done and keep moving. Dont let any-one play emotional mind games with you. Do your best to pay off outstand-ing financial, emotional or physical debts. +++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
