COMING WEDNESDAY Local news roundup. 78 52 Fog early WEATHER, 2A Lake City ReporterTUESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | 75¢ LAKECITYREPORTER.COM CALL US:(386) 752-1293SUBSCRIBE TOTHE REPORTER:Voice: 755-5445Fax: 752-9400 Vol. 138, No. 220 12nd medevac provider comingBy DEREK GILLIAMdgilliam@lakecityreporter.comStarting next year, two medevac helicopters will be on stand-by in Lake City instead of just one. Lake City Gateway Airport will see the addition of another heli-pad and another medical crew, along with an additional helicop-ter to fly the seriously injured to hospitals in the area. The Lake City City Council on Monday approved a lease agree-ment with Med-Trans Corp. for the company to fill a vacant prop-erty at the airport. The addition of a second emergency helicopter at the airport will allow for quicker response to major wrecks or other disasters that would require a helicopter for transport to a hospital. Brian Burrell, regional business director with Med-Trans, said the company plans on spend-ing $70,000 to $80,000 before the helicopter will be brought onto the property. He said the company will bring in a manufactured building to house staff and will pour a new helipad at the airport. Med-Trans will use Trauma One for medical staff, pilots and the engineer, Burrell said. Trauma One was partnered with Air Methods, but the contract with Air Methods ends on Jan. 3. Toby Witt, regional business manager with Air Methods, said Air Methods has been in Lake City for around 10 years, and that the company will continue to serve the area with medical transport by helicopter. Air Methods will continue to use the Lake City Gateway Airport, but hasn’t released the name of the company that will staff Air Method’s helicopter. New ‘cliff’ offer from GOP ASSOCIATED PRESSPresident Barack Obama waves after speaking at the Rodon Group, which manufactures over 95% of the parts for K’NEX Brands toys, on Friday. The visit came as the White House continued a week of public outreach efforts, while also attempting to negotiate a deal with congressional leaders.$2.2 trillion plan includes Medicare age hike By ANDREW TAYLORAssociated PressWASHINGTON—House Republicans on Monday proposed a new 10-year, $2.2 trillion blue-print to President Barack Obama that calls for increasing the eligi-bility age for Medicare and lower-ing cost-of-living hikes for Social Security benefits. The proposal from House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and other Republicans comes in response to Obama’s offer last week to hike taxes by $1.6 trillion over the coming decade but large-ly exempt Medicare and Social Security from budget cuts. The GOP plan also proposes to raise $800 billion in higher tax revenue over the decade but it would keep the Bush-era tax cuts — including those for wealthier earners targeted by Obama — in place for now. Boehner said the GOP proposal is a “credible plan” for Obama and that he hopes the administra-tion would “respond in a timely and responsible way.” The offer comes after the administration urged Republicans to detail their proposal to cut popular benefits programs like Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid. “After the election I offered to speed this up by putting revenue on the table and unfortunately the White House responded with their la-la land offer that couldn’t pass the House, couldn’t pass the Senate and it was basically the president’s budget from last House Republicansmake the presidenta counteroffer.

Associated Press NEW YORK The Bowl Championship Series gave college football a national championship matchup low on controversy and loaded with star power. No. 1 Notre Dame against No. 2 Alabama in Miami on Jan. 7 for the national title. No complaints. That Fiesta Bowl with No. 5 Oregon against No. 7 Kansas State looks good, too. After that, well, you can see why so many fans are so eager to get rid of the BCS. No. 4 Florida goes to the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans to face No. 22 Louisville, a Big East team that was unranked as recently as last week. Wisconsin will be the first five-loss team to play in the Rose Bowl when it faces No. 8 Stanford in Pasadena, Calif. Then theres the Orange Bowl in Miami, where No. 13 Florida State will face No. 16 Northern Illinois, the Mid-American Conference champion that took advantage of the lackluster Big Ten and Big East champions to slip into the BCS with a 12-1 record.

Team percentages are derived by dividing a teams actual voting points by a maximum 2875 possible points in the Harris Interactive Poll and 1475 possible points in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Six computer rankings are used to deter mine the overall computer component. The highest and lowest ranking for each team is dropped, and the remaining four are added and divided to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage.

While the Minutes investigation didnt allege poor care for patients at hospitals owned by the company, the report did suggest that supervisors at some hospitals set quo tas for doctors to meet for emergancy room inpatient services. Inpatient services are typically more expen sive, and profitable for a hospital compared to outpa tient observation. Jack Berry, executive director of Lake Shore Hospital Authority, which leases the land where Shands Lake Shore oper ates, said he watched the report and thinks the alle gations are baseless. I saw it, heard it and none of it is true about our hospital as far as I know, he said. Rhonda Sherrod, mar ket chief executive officer for Shands Lake Shore, declined comment, but Market Director Linda Silecchia sent an email with the companys official response. In the response, HMA said the company sent admissions data that dem onstrated the companys hospitals emergency room admissions rates were in line with national norms and consistent over a sev eral-year period. The company said 60 Minutes relied entirely on disgruntled former employ ees of the company and former contracted phy sicians, several of whom are seeking financial gain through active litigation with Health Management (Associates). Furthermore, 60 Minutes failed to iden tify a single patient who had been inappropriately admitted from any of the companys emergency rooms, including by the physicians interviewed. In a Nov. 30 confer ance call anticipating the airing of the segment on Minutes, Eric Waller, HMA senior vice presi dent and chief marketing officer, said the companys emergency room admis sion rate was 13.3 percent. Waller went on to say that the companys emer gency room admission rate for Medicare patients had decreased from 36.4 percent to 34.4 percent. Again these are in line with the national norms. he said in a prepared stste ment. No statistical sig nificance. mitigation specialist and public information officer at the Suwannee Forestry Center, said the local wild fire activity reported during November is within normal limits. However, he noted that the area is in the midst of a rainfall deficit. We have a rainfall deficit now in our six-county area, he said. Generally speak ing its about 2 -3 inches, but there are a couple of spots where it may be up to four inches. The National Interagency Fire Center Office of Predictive Services is fore casting normal tempera ture and precipitation lev els from December March with average wildfire poten tial. Although the forecasts sound comforting, we can not ignore the possibility of serious fire risk, Wisner said. We have not had sig nificant rainfall in over the past two months. Were already seeing counties to our west, out in the Panhandle, drift ing back into having an abnormally dry drought situation, Wisner contin ued. We dont foresee that drought, within the next three months or so, is going to be a problem like it was many months ago when we had exceptional drought throughout our area. Wisner said the impor tance is not the amount of the deficit, but that there is a deficit. Many people in our area dont realize there is a rainfall deficit, because there are still people trying to recover from Tropical Storm Debby flooding and they are probably very relieved there is no rain falling on them right now, he said. From the perspec tive with whats happen ing with the forest fuels grasses and vegetation which we look at as fuels for fires we have to look at it as things are getting more dry and when things start to get more dry we have a propensity to have wildfires. Wisner said recent frosts have cured surface fuels, making them more volatile and noted lower humidity levels and gusty winds will increase wildfire potential. Under dry, windy con ditions dried grasses will ignite easily and fire will spread quickly, he said. The area through all of North Florida is drying out and when it dries out that gives us a pretty good fire risk. Although Florida Forest Service officials are grant ing some controlled burn permits, Wisner suggest ed residents check with forestry officials before setting any fires. Its a day-to-day call, especially this time of the year, he said, describing fire activity. The weather and atmospheric condi tions really vary widely this time of the year. Residents should check on the weath er conditions daily. Page Editor: Jim Barr, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2012 3A 3A No Runaround -No Hassle We can help.

CLIFF: GOP proposal includes more revenue Continued From Page 1A HMA: Baseless, local official says February, Boehner told reporters. The Boehner proposal revives a host of ideas from failed talks with Obama in the summer of 2011. Then, Obama was willing to dis cuss politically controver sial ideas like raising the eligibility age for Medicare, implementing a new infla tion adjustment for Social Security cost-of-living adjustments and requiring wealthier Medicare recipi ents to pay more for their benefits. On Monday, Obama did not respond to ques tions from reporters on his reaction to the Republican counteroffer or whether he had seen the proposal. The clock is ticking clos er to the end-of-year dead line to avert the fiscal cliff, which is a combination of the expiration of Bush-era tax cuts and automatic, across-the-board spending cuts that are the result of prior failures of Congress and Obama to make a bud get deal. Many economists say such a one-two punch could send the fragile economy back into recession. GOP aides said the plan was based on a plan floated by Erskine Bowles in tes timony to the special defi cit supercommittee last year in effect a milder version of the highly con troversial 2010 Bowles proposal that caused both GOP and Democratic lead ers in Congress to recoil. By GOP math, the plan would produce $2.2 trillion in saving over the com ing decade: $800 billion in higher taxes; $600 bil lion in savings from costly health care programs like Medicare; $300 billion from other proposals like forc ing federal workers to con tribute more toward their pensions; and $300 billion in additional savings from the Pentagon budget and domestic programs funded by Congress each year. Under the administra tions math, GOP aides said, the plan represents $4.6 trillion in 10-year savings. That estimate accounts for earlier cuts enacted during last years showdown over lifting the governments borrowing cap and also factors in war savings and lower interest payments on the $16.4 trillion national debt. Last week, the White House delivered to Capitol Hill its opening proposal: $1.6 trillion in higher taxes over a decade, a possible extension of the temporary Social Security payroll tax cut and heightened presi dential power to raise the national debt limit. In exchange, the presi dent would back $600 billion in spending cuts, including $350 billion from Medicare and other health programs. But he also wants $200 billion in new spending for jobless ben efits, public works projects and aid for struggling hom eowners. His proposal for raising the ceiling on gov ernment borrowing would make it virtually impossible for Congress to block him going forward. Republicans said they responded in closed-door meetings with laughter and disbelief. The GOP plan is cer tain to whip up opposition from Democrats opposed to any action now on Social Security, whose defenders say should not be part of any fiscal cliff deal. And Democrats also are deep ly skeptical of raising the Medicare age. Both ideas were part of negotiations between Boehner and Obama in the summer of last year. In a letter to the presi dent, Boehner and six other House Republicans insisted that the November election that returned Obama to the White House and the GOP to majority control in the House requires both par ties to come together on a fair middle ground. With the fiscal cliff near ing, our priority remains finding a reasonable solu tion that can pass both the House and Senate, and be signed into law in the next couple of weeks, Republicans wrote. FIRE: 15 blazes reported in area in November Continued From Page 1A PROJECTS: Hundreds of jobs could result Continued From Page 1A development department, since October the EDD has participated in seven projects that collectively rep resent close to half a billion dollars of investment and more than 1,000 potential jobs. Its really for education purposes to tell them (board members) whats coming our way, Quillen said. With these opportunities, some weve been able to compete on and some weve have not. Im trying to help my board and folks understand over time what it really takes to be competitive. Some of those projects require buildings that we may not have and some of them may require locations that are out of our control. There are all kinds of criteria that different projects demand, that wont allow us to compete. Quillen said he added the infor mation to his monthly report in order to share the information with others about the activity the eco nomic development department has experienced. Hopefully we are competing for a good number of those seven projects, not all of them, but out of the ones we are competing on, if we could do one or two of those projects, that would be wonderful, he said. Were get ting some good looks. The seven projects were listed under code names, as allowed under Florida law. The projects include: Project Redwood, a distribution center, potentially creating 500 jobs; Site Selection, a call center sur vey; Project Reach, a call center, potentially creating 150 jobs; Project Spark, a manufacturing company, potentially creating 400 jobs; Project Century, food manufac turing; potentially creating 50 jobs; Project Bark, a wood pellet facil ity, potentially creating 80 jobs; and Project MegaSite, Original Equipment Manufacturing, no details on potential job creations. In addition, David Ramsey, Gainesville Council for Economic Outreach vice president, is scheduled to be a guest speaker at the meeting. Quillen said Ramsey is entrepre neurship and innovation is a big focus of the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce. The underlying theme there and the reason for having Ramsey here is build the relationship with Gainesville so that we understand fully what theyre doing and trying to figure out ways that we can take advantage of activity that they have down there, Quillen said. Area residents will receive better service with two helicopters located at the citys airport, Witt said. Were got medical staff hired, and were ready to go Jan. 3, Witt said. He said the medical staff, along with pilots and engineers, have been iden tified, but that the company hasnt given permission to be named yet. Burrell said Med-Trans plans on being ready Jan. 3, and will be able to start work sometime in the mid dle of December. Were going to be mov ing quick, he said. A lot of work to be done. In other business: The city approved a token of appreciation of $50 for part-time employ ees and a $100 for full-time employees. The cost will be around $24,000. City Manager Wendell Johnson said the city should rec ognize the work that city employees do. The Lake City Fire Department eliminated three battalion chief posi tions, and reclassified the position to firefighter. The move will save the city about $65,000 a year. There are currently two battalion chief positions filled by the city, but one of the battal ion chiefs is a candidate to for assistant fire chief and the other will be retiring, Interim Fire Chief Frank Armijo said. HELIPAD: Quicker service Continued From Page 1A CDC: Flu season starts early, could be bad one Associated Press NEW YORK Flu sea son in the U.S. is off to its earliest start in nearly a decade and it could be a bad one. Health officials on Monday said suspected flu cases have jumped in five Southern states, and the primary strain circulat ing tends to make people sicker than other types. It is particularly hard on the elderly. It looks like its shaping up to be a bad flu season, but only time will tell, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The good news is that the nation seems fairly well prepared, Frieden said. More than a third of Americans have been vac cinated, and the vaccine formulated for this year is well-matched to the strains of the virus seen so far, CDC officials said. Higher-than-normal reports of flu have come in from Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have a friend, “Cara,” who lives in another state. It’s not a very reciprocal friendship. Cara calls us frequently, but wants to talk only about her prob-lems, which are never-end-ing. When she visits, she demands our full attention at all times. Frankly, we find her exhausting and would like to cut her out of our lives. Our worry is that we are some of the few friends Cara has left. She has alienated most of her other friends as well as her parents, sometimes over trivial matters. We know she’s depressed and has emotional issues, and we suspect she may have a mental illness. She has been suicidal in the past, but now refuses to see her therapist. We’re worried that if we don’t continue serv-ing as her talk therapy -which we find draining -Cara might become so depressed she’ll hurt her-self. How do we extricate ourselves from this rela-tionship while still doing the right thing? -WORN-OUT BUT WORRIED IN CHICAGO DEAR WORN-OUT: You and your wife are well-meaning, but neither of you is qualified to be Cara’s therapist. Allowing her to monopolize your time and sap your energy may momentarily lessen her pain or anxiety, but it hasn’t -and will not -give her the tools she needs to fix what’s wrong. You can extricate yourselves by encouraging her to talk to a mental health professional. It doesn’t have to be the therapist she no longer wants to see, but it does need to be someone who has the training to help her. You should also shorten the length of the conversa-tions. This is happening to you because you are allow-ing it. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are retired and enjoy going out for a nice dinner occasionally. We go to chain restaurants, hotel restaurants and local dinner establishments. We order lighter meals than we used to, and with the cost of dinners these days we have been finishing our entire meal. Our problem is that again and again, our serv-er makes a comment about our finished plates. It might be, “You were really hungry, I see!” or, “Wow! You really enjoyed that!” It is uncomfortable to hear these comments about our eating habits and it spoils our enjoyment. This may be an attempt on their part to be friendly, but we don’t like it. How do we let them know this is crossing the boundaries of professional behavior? -EMBARRASSED IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. DEAR EMBARRASSED: I hope you realize that for many people this would not be a problem. You needn’t be confrontational -all you need to calmly say is, “When you say that, it makes me uncomfortable, so please don’t do it again.” No servers want to offend a guest, and they are not mind readers. However, they are all aware that their tips depend on how their service is regarded by customers -so I’m sure your comment will be taken to heart. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Sort through your personal papers and see where you stand.

OPINION Tuesday, December 4, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com 4A4AOPINIONTo the Editor:I took part in the Riders with Caring Hearts bike rally which benefited the Christian Service Center. What a wonderful experi-ence to be with such car-ing people! Thanks to RountreeMoore and their employ-ees, the American Legion and their volunteers, volunteers of the CSC, the great people of Columbia County Cycles, the riders and businesses in our com-munity which contributed greatly to make it a suc-cess. As a volunteer at the CSC, I see the needs of those in our community and the pain people suffer due to the conditions of the economy, health issues and just plain circumstanc-es of life. It is a rewarding experience to be able to help in a small way. (We are always looking for new volunteers, btw.) I would like to extend an invitation to those reading this letter to donate to the CSC before Christmas. All donations of money are matched by gener-ous donors at this time, so your donation is worth twice as much and will do twice as much good. We might think about this also: We are often tempted to buy that extra little something for Johnny or Sue at this time of year. Why not donate the amount you would spend on that trinket or toy or sweater in Johnny’s or Sue’s name and give that individual a card which explains the “pay it for-ward” gift. Generosity can and should come from all. No matter if it’s a simple smile for someone, a visit to a nursing home, or some-thing bought, all gifts are precious. Whether you celebrate the holidays and/or the Holy Days, reach out to our community. Your ges-ture will benefit all of us. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all. Micheline Adamcewicz Lake City Reasons America has lost its way To the Editor:Why have we as a country lost our way? Why are we following Europe into an unsuccessful socialist system that has bankrupt-ed its own governments? When we were world leaders, almost everyone worked and the family breadwinners supported the family, not the govern-ment. We weren’t politi-cally correct and those who wanted to went to the churches of their choice. The harder you worked and improved your educa-tion, the more successful you were. Parents were parents and made the children do what they were told. Teachers taught the brightest in the class and helped the rest keep up. Yes, some failed but many succeeded. Children knew they would be held respon-sible for their actions. People from all over the world still come to this country, work hard and build successful lives for themselves and their fami-lies. Unfortunately, those born here don’t have the same desires, dedication and work ethic. Could this possibly be one of the rea-sons we as a country have lost our way? Irv Crowetz, Lake City H aving spent most of my undergradu-ate years in Southeastern Conference towns, I have never been a fan of Notre Dame football. But on Jan. 7, I will be rooting for the Fighting Irish to whip their SEC opponent in this season’s Bowl Championship Series game. I will be rooting for Notre Dame because the university is doing what all schools with football teams should be doing: caring as much about its players’ academic success as it does about winning on the field. These priorities consistently pay off for every-one involved. Notre Dame’s football program is the first to be ranked No. 1 in the BCS standings while hav-ing the nation’s highest graduation rate. This is a great accomplishment when big-time college football is rightly being accused of lowering or ignoring academic stan-dards for winning sea-sons. The fighting Irish’s most recent NCAA graduation rate was 97 percent, 20 points higher than the other top BCS programs. I learned about this achievement in a Chronicle of Higher Education interview with the Rev. John I. Jenkins, Notre Dame’s president. In my view, all college presidents should heed Jenkins’ advice and study his observations. He said that on-the-field and off-the-field success can be seamless if there is “real commitment up and down the line.” When recruiting, college coaches must emphasize this approach with high school coaches, school staffs, parents and play-ers. At Notre Dame, once players are on campus, they receive help from a dedicated support staff and professors who see them as students first. “If all those parts are working — and if you get good kids — then you can do it,” Jenkins said. Brad Wolverton, the Chronicle’s interviewer, asked if Notre Dame gives itself an advantage at the outset by recruit-ing fewer players who will fail academically. Jenkins acknowledged that some students lack academic preparation to succeed at Notre Dame. It would be unfair, he said, to the student and disadvantageous for the team to bring in those who will fail in the class-room. “Our admissions staff looks at SATs and prepa-ration, but there is also an element of charac-ter,” he said. “It’s not as much about smartness. It’s commitment. If a kid is committed to do the work, that kid, if he has the basic ability, can suc-ceed.” He said a president’s personal involvement is the key to the dual suc-cess of winning on and off the field: “The role of the president in any area is to just set the tone and expectations, and hire people who buy into the right values and hold them accountable for results. But if your rheto-ric is belied by how you reward people and how you hold them account-able, it will be empty.” He said the players’ graduation rate is tied to the athletic director’s compensation package, and the athletic direc-tor has to make sure the coaches understand that high graduation rates are essential. “Frankly, I don’t think it makes much differ-ence what I say to play-ers,” Jenkins said. “What makes a difference is what coaches tell them.” The obvious question was asked: Do Fighting Irish players consistently have high graduation rates because they take those mythically easy courses like basket weav-ing and physical educa-tion? Players take the same rigorous courses other students take, and they have the same majors, Jenkins said. In fact, Notre Dame does not have PE or recreational-development majors. And it is not a fluke that Andrew Hendrix, the quarterback, is a premed major. Jenkins said he understands public cynicism about college sports, especially lucrative foot-ball programs. For too long, too many schools have ignored academic success to win games. He said if colleges disregard the connection between academic success and winning on the gridiron, they become “a lesser version” of professional sports. “What makes college athletics interesting is that the kids are stu-dents,” he said. “That’s why it’s so important across higher education for us to bring those two things together.” No matter which team puts the most points on the scoreboard Jan. 7 in Miami, the Fighting Irish will be victorious.

BY EMAIL: news@lakecityreporter.com Circumstances surrounding the departure of executive director David Still from the Suwannee River Water Management District last spring remain murky at best. First he was quitting, then he changed his mind. At which point he was fired by a sharply divided governing board. To hear Still tell it – as he did last week to the Tampa Bay Times – he was forced out by Gov. Rick Scott, who didn’t want to hear what he had to say about the state of North Central Florida’s rivers, lakes and freshwater springs. Whether that’s true we don’t know.Still also says he opposed the decision by the St. Johns River water district to grant JEA a permit to draw up to 155 million gallons of water per day from the Floridan Aquifer, for the purpose of cooling turbines at its power plant. Still told the Times that the Department of Environmental Protection somehow silenced him at the final hearing, clearing JEA’s path to the 20-year permit. Not sure about that one, either.What we do know is this: Florida’s springs, lakes and streams are drying up at an alarming rate, and public confidence in our water management districts to do anything about it is eroding even faster. Still’s claims, belated as they are, only add to our concerns. Here in Columbia County those concerns are more than just environmental nostalgia. Eco-tourism – a fancy name for something that’s been around forever, in our view – could one day become a staple of the local economy. That once was the case in nearby White Springs, when even U.S. presidents made the trek to bathe in the supposed healing waters of the geyser that gave the little town its name. The practice has long since gone out of fashion, but little matter: the spring dried up decades ago. As for today’s dilemma, all that’s needed is the political will to do something about it. What’s lacking is exactly that.

By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE Floridas latest search for a new schools chief has attracted a list of more than 60 applicants, including a university president as well as the outgoing schools superintendent for Indiana. The question is whether this batch of candidates will be enough to convince state education officials that they have found the right person for the job. The State Board of Education in September extended the search for a new Florida Education Commissioner until last Friday after board mem bers were dissatisfied with the initial round of applicants. The job of appointed education commissioner is one of the most high profile education jobs in the state. The next per son hired will have to help the state transition to new testing standards and a merit pay system for school teachers. One of those who applied for the job by the Friday deadline was Tony Bennett, a Republican who was ousted this November by Indiana voters after he spent four years putting in place changes modeled on those pushed by former Gov. Jeb Bush. Bennett is a member of a coalition of state school officials oper ated by Bushs education foundation. Your state was the leader in starting this movement of making decisions based solely on kids, and I would like to take Florida to the next level, wrote Bennett in his letter to Florida offi cials about the job. Another last-minute applicant for the job is Randy Dunn, president of Murray State University in Kentucky. Dunn has been Murray State president since 2006, but prior to taking that position he was state super intendent of education in Illinois. A Kentucky news paper recently reported that faculty at Murray State are concerned that Dunns contract is due to expire in 2014. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER NEWS TUESDAY DECEMBER 4, 2012 6A Name Brand Gently Used Childrens Clothing Maternity Clothing Cribs High Chairs Toys 471 SW 247 Branford Crossing 752-9885 (Across from the fairgrounds) NEW MERCHA N DISE A RRIVI N G D AILY Bring your unwanted Gold, Silver & Platinum to someone you can trust Precious metals are seeing record values.

Obamacare foes vent to state Senate panel By KELLI KENNEDY Associated Press FORT LAUDERDALE, Dozens of tea party activists and conservative religious leaders flooded a state Senate meeting on the Affordable Care Act on Monday, calling the law a gross overreach by the federal govern ment and begging lawmakers not to implement it. The first meeting of the Senate Select Committee on Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, chaired by Republican Sen. Joe Negron, was a fiery one as lawmakers discussed what will be one of the most critical and contentious issues of the upcom ing legislative session. The state must decide whether to expand its Medicaid rolls to offer coverage to more residents and whether to set up a staterun health exchange or allow the federal government to run the program. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has been a vocal critic of the health care law. He softened his stance after the election, sig naling he wants to work togeth er with the feds, but is worried about the cost to taxpayers. A rowdy conservative crowd commandeered a nearly hourlong public comment section, stressing that the constitution does not grant the federal gov ernment the authority to make health care decisions, despite a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that upheld most of the health care law. All but one spoke against Obamacare. We will not comply with this unlawful mandate, Pastor James Hall of the Baptist Coalition of North Florida said to rousing applause. Constitutional attorney Krisanne Hall said she travels the country talking to citizens and religious groups who echo that sentiment. She asked the Senate committee to consider how it will deal with citizens when they law fully and constitutionally stand and say we will not comply. Democratic Senate Minority leader Chris Smith was booed when he reminded the crowd that the federal government stepped in to uphold justice in civil rights cases. Our Constitution is an imper fect document. If it was perfect it would not have amendments to it. The constitution had to be amended through time. Sometimes you need change and I look forward to looking at this law, he said. The committee made no deci sions Monday and lawmakers gave little indication of what they might decide. The state has until Dec. 14 to tell federal officials if it will set up its own health exchange, an online marketplace where resi dents and small businesses can shop for health care coverage. The state can also partner with the federal government on an exchange or allow the feds to run the program entirely. One of the most critical deci sions will be whether Florida decides to expand its Medicaid rolls to offer coverage to more residents. The Obama adminis tration is offering to absorb the cost for the first three years and pick up 90 percent of the tab after that. Florida has one of the highest rates of uninsured residents and some of the most stringent eligi bility requirements in the coun try for Medicaid. A family of three with an income of $11,000 a year makes too much and single residents are not covered. Officials estimate close to 900,000 residents could be cov ered under expanded Medicaid rolls by fiscal year 2020-2021, costing the state $330 million. But a committee adviser said federal officials have indicated that states might be allowed to partially expand the rolls which could cost less. For exam ple, instead of offering coverage for residents who qualify up to 138 percent of the poverty level, the state could choose to expand coverage at a lower percentage. States can also retract their expansion at any time. If we didnt expand Medicaid theres the potential that people that would have been covered under Medicaid expansion could in fact be covered through the exchange through some type of subsidy, said Negron. He reminded the committee that the state will spend about $21 billion on Medicaid this year. Medicaid covers nearly 3 million people. About half are children. Lawmakers say Medicaid must be overhauled because its eating up about 30 percent of the state budget. Its crowded out our ability to fund high education, transporta tion and other equally valid and worthy parts of our budget, said Negron, who spearheaded the 2011 passage of two historic bills that privatized Medicaid state wide. The state is still waiting for federal officials to sign off on that request. Sen. Eleanor Sobel, DHollywood, also stressed the states high rates of uninsured residents. I think that needs to be reck oned with and we need to adjust our attitudes so we make sure that everyone has health insur ance ... thats affordable and accessible, she said. We will not comply with this unlawful mandate. Pastor James Hall, the Baptist Coalition of North Florida By JULIE PACE Associated Press WASHINGTON President Barack Obama wants Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz to stay on as his partys chairwom an. Wasserman Schultz has overseen the Democratic National Committee since early 2011. Party officials credit her in part with help ing the president carry her home state of Florida, as well as leading the party to an expanded majority in the Senate and more seats in the House. Ive asked Debbie Wasserman Schultz to con tinue her excellent work as chair of the DNC, Obama wrote on Twitter Monday. Thanks for all you do, Debbie. The tweet was signed bo, which the White House says is a signal that the president wrote it per sonally. Wasserman Schultz also took to Twitter to respond, writing, Thank you, Mr. President. I am honored to serve. Democratic officials said Obama asked DNC mem bers to back Wasserman Schultz when they meet in January, just after the pres idents inauguration. A mother of three and a breast cancer survivor, Wasserman Schultz, 46, has represented a reli ably Democratic Fort Lauderdale-area district since 2005. Along the way she has earned a reputa tion as a workhorse and as an outspoken liberal happy to duke it out on television with her Republican coun terparts. Throughout the presiden tial election, Wasserman Shultz was a particularly prominent spokeswoman for Obama in Florida, the critical swing state where the president eked out a close win in the November election. As a Jew and a strong advocate for Israel, she also provided a bul wark for Obama against Republican efforts to paint him as anti-Israel. Wasserman Schultz also buoyed her reputation as a fundraiser during the 2012 election cycle, with Democrats noting that she was particularly adept at bringing into the fold donors to Bill and Hillary Clinton who had been wary of supporting Obama. She supported Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary. ASSOCIATED PRESS Preident Barack Obama said he wants U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., to stay on as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, a post she has held since early 2011. She agreed to do so. Wasserman Schultz to stay on as chairwoman of DNC 60 vying for schools post AROUND FLORIDA Christmas Eve to be paid holiday TALLAHASSEE State workers will get Christmas Eve off as a paid holiday. The Tallahassee Democrat reported Monday that Gov. Rick Scott has directed execu tive agencies to shut down on Monday, Dec. 24. That will give workers a four-day weekend, rather than making them come back for one day and then having another day off. Workers who perform essential functions will still have to work, but theyll get an equal amount of paid administrative leave to use in the next six months. Scott similarly closed executive agency offices on Dec. 23, 2011, his first year in office. Former Gov. Charlie Crist granted state workers both Christmas Eve and New Years Eve off with pay in 2008. Four kittens found in freezer ST. PETERSBURG A Tampa Bay area man faces charges after authorities said a visitor found four kittens one of which was dead in his freezer. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office reported that 38-year-old Rodney Blanchard asked a friend to get a beer out of his freezer Sunday. Instead of beer, the friend said she found kittens in individual sandwich bags. When the friend tried to remove the kittens, she said Blanchard made her leave. Thats when she contacted authorities. Deputies reported find ing three orange and white males, which were still alive, and a dead, calico female. They were approxi mately six weeks old. The surviving kittens were taken to a local ani mal hospital. Officials also removed an adult cat from the home. Blanchard was charged with four counts of animal cruelty and one count of misdemeanor battery. Teen dies while spear fishing KEY LARGO Authorities say a 19-yearold from Miami died while free diving and spear fish ing offshore of the Upper Keys. Monroe County Sheriffs officials say the accident happened Sunday near the lighthouse at Tennessee Reef. The teen was with friends on a private ves sel. When he failed to resurface after a dive, his friends called the sheriffs office. The sheriffs dive team responded, along with the U.S. Coast Guard and the Wildlife Conservation Commission. The teens body was recovered and taken to the county medical examiners office. Pilots body found following crash APOLLO BEACH Authorities have recovered the body of a pilot a day after his helicopter went down in Tampa Bay. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office says the body of 60 -yearold John Lawrence Ward was found Saturday in the shallow waters of Tampa Bay just off Apollo Beach. The body was turned over the medical exam iners office where an autopsy will determine an official cause of death. Associated Press
