By AMANDA WILLIAMSONawilliamson@lakecityreporter.comP ublic defender, city councilman, Olustee Battle commanding general, National Guard lieutenant colonel. Dennis Roberts has worn many titles through the course of his life, but on Wednesday he added one more to his long list of honors: 2013 Lake City Columbia County Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year. Roberts community involvement includes 12 different organizations, as well as the time served in the military and as public defender for the Third Circuit Court. But since retiring in January, Roberts said he will not continue to be as involved in the community as he was in the past. By being involved, its a way of paying things back, he said. I encourage every-one to be involved. Join the chamber. Do something that will continue to make the city a better place. Roberts was presented the award during a Wednesday Chamber of Commerce luncheon honor-ing the local businesses of the year and the citizen of the year. About 120 people attended the event. Lake City Medical Center won the award for Large Business of the Year, and Pro Motion Physical Therapy took home the title of Small Business of the Year.

By GARY FINEOUTAssociated PressTALLAHASSEE In uncharacteristic style, Gov. Rick Scott is already raising ques-tions about some of the early budget propos-als emerging from the Republican-controlled Legislature. Scott on Tuesday openly questioned whether or not House Republicans were going to recommend a $2,500 across-the-board pay raise for teachers. Its one of Scotts priorities for the session. The Republican governor noted that the initial outline for the House budget calls for across-the-board pay raises for state workers but not teachers. Scott called the distinction interesting. State workers deserve to be paid fairly, said Scott, who recommended a one-time bonus for state employees in his proposed $74.2 billion budget. But I find it interesting that the speaker is against the pay raise for classroom teachers but is OK with an across-the-board pay raise for state workers. Weatherford responded to the governor initially on Twitter, suggesting that the gov-ernors staff had misread the initial House proposals. He ended his message on Twitter with (hash)truth. He pointed out later that the House had pledged to set aside more than $1 billion in extra money for public schools. Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, said that was enough money for school districts to raise teacher salaries following negotiations with local unions. The governor must be confused, Weatherford said. His staff must have mis-interpreted our budget ... Every teacher is going to benefit from our investment in edu-cation. This year marks the first time in six years that state legislators actually have a budget surplus as they craft a new spending plan for County woman killed in crash with log truckBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comA 26-year-old Columbia County woman was killed Wednesday morning when her 2004 Kia was struck head-on by a log truck in Baker County. Lindsay Danielle Chace, 26, of Lake City, was killed in the wreck. None of the other motorists or passengers involved in the crash were injured. The wreck occurred about 5 a.m. Wednesday on U.S. 90 at the intersection of West Thomas Drive. According to Florida Highway Patrol reports, Chace was driving a white Kia Optima headed east on U.S. 90. Chaces vehicle was followed by a green, 1994 Cadillac driven by Fate J. Holcy, 64, of Macclenny, who was traveling with Lawrence David Phillips, 41, of Jacksonville. At the same time, Ernest Thomas Williams, 43, Jacksonville, was driving a 2001 International semi tractor-trailer carrying tim-ber that was westbound on the highway. Gary Maurice Hannans, 43, also of Jacksonville, was a passenger in Williams vehicle. For reasons that remain under investigation, Chaces vehicle crossed the center line and collided head-on with the log truck, FHP said. After the initial impact, Chaces vehicle and the log truck left the roadway and went into the tree line on the southern shoulder of the highway. Chamber honors local businesses for contributions. Public colleges have big impact By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comFlorida Gateway College and the 27 other public col-leges across the state are credited with boosting the states economy by more than $26.6 billion annually, according to a study by state officials. The study indicates the economic impact of the col-leges is through direct and indirect income and eco-nomic activity of current and former Florida College System students in the workforce. The Council of Presidents and the Florida College System commis-sioned Economic Modeling Specialists International to conduct the study. FGC president Dr. Chuck Hall said its important to get the word out about the economic boost the colleg-es provide for the state and local economies.

Charlie Crist holds a big edge over Republican Gov. Rick Scott among regis-tered Florida voters in a hypothetical gubernatorial matchup in 2014, a new poll shows. Crist was favored by 50 percent while Scott was preferred by 34 percent in a survey of 1,000 registered vot-ers conducted March 13-18 by the Quinnipiac (Conn.) University Polling Institute. It also showed that Democrat Alex Sink, who lost to Scott in 2010, would defeat the governor by a margin of 45 percent to 34 percent if the elec-tion were now. The polls margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. Half of those surveyed said they view Crists switch from the GOP to the Democratic Party as a sign that he is a pragma-tist, compared to 40 per-cent who saw it as a nega-tive and an indication that Crist lacks core beliefs. The fact that voters think its an asset that former Gov. Charlie Crist moved from conservative Republican to a Democrat with very different politi-cal views will be a key metric to watch between now and the 2014 voting, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the institute. Those numbers indicate Republicans will have a tough job turning around Crists lead over Scott by reminding voters of Crists evolution.Girls punishment video goes viral CRESTVIEW The parents of a teen who was disciplined by holding a sign at a Panhandle inter-section say critics should walk a mile in someones shoes before judging them. Passing motorists snapped pictures and took video of 13-year-old girl on Saturday. One motorist called police who left after confirming that the girl was aware of her punish-ment and wasnt in any harm. Her father, Gentry Nickell, was standing nearby. The Northwest Florida Daily News reports her parents say they were shocked to learn the video went viral. The sign described the girl as a self-entitled teen-ager with no respect for authority who makes Ds in school. The newspaper reports the girl told her mother she wasnt scarred by the punishment. They say her behavior has improved since the punishment.Country singer injured in crash OCALA Police cited country music singer David Allen Coe for run-ning a red light before his vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer. Ocala police say Coe was driving a 2011 Suburban early Tuesday when he ran the red light. The truck hit the SUV broadside, pushing it into a nearby parking lot. The truck flipped on its side, wrapped around a pole and spilled the radishes and corn it was hauling. A message on his website says 73-year-old Coe is recuperating from his accident and will be ok. His agent told the news-paper that Coes concerts in St. Louis and Louisville, Ky., have been cancelled. Authorities say the trucks driver 50-year-old Robert Johnson and 49year-old Lisa Meade also were injured.School bus driver faces charges TAMPA The video of a Hillsborough County school bus driver who pushed a girl off the bus has been released. The State Attorneys Office released the video Wednesday and shows 41-year-old Stephanie Wilkerson using her foot to push an 8-year-old girl off the bus last October. Wilkerson was charged with aggravated child abuse. Police said Wilkerson was driving special-needs children to school in Tampa on Sept. 28 when the girl wanted to get off the bus. She was told to wait her turn, but police say the girl slapped and pushed the driver. As the girl walked off the bus, she stopped on the steps and thats when police say Wilkerson pushed her with her foot. The student fractured her ankle.Car runs into group of people POMPANO BEACH Authorities are question-ing the driver whose car struck a crowd of about 20 people in Pompano Beach, injuring at least five people. Broward Sheriffs Office spokesman Mike Jachles says the 23-year-old female driver drove into the crowd at the end of a road Wednesday after an ongo-ing dispute. Jachles says the driver accelerated into the crowd and struck at least five people. A 2-year-old child was airlifted to the hospital as a precau-tion. Two adults also were taken to the hospital.

Its a Brad Brad World began with Goreski trying to kick-start his styling business. He kept racks of clothes in his garage, worried about money and needed to get his name out there. The show is now in its second season on Bravo (Wednesday, 10 p.m. EDT), and the former style director for Rachel Zoe has turned things around. (Goreski was featured on Zoes Bravo series before landing his own show.) He counts a number of Hollywood leading ladies as clients, including Jessica Alba, Rashida Jones, Stacy Keibler and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Hes also the head brand stylist for Kate Spade. So what does he do for those famous faces? Its a very simple process, he explained in a recent interview. I bring a very edited rack, and I know the top five things that (the client) is going to like. When he dressed Alba for the Golden Globe Awards, it was the first dress that we tried on, Goreski said. We tried on maybe three or four after that and were like, This is it, he said. And I think that is a really good way to work. Goreski, 35, said dressing celebrities is more than feeding their egos. People arent hiring me to be a yes man, he said. They have their girlfriends for that. He said a stylist has to able to say why something doesnt look great on a client or why it wont be received well. You cant just say it doesnt look good on you, you have to say this: Its not flattering, the colors off, it wont photograph well from the side, theres nothing really special about it.Bobby Brown starts DUI jail sentence LOS ANGELES Bobby Brown has surrendered to authorities and will begin a 55-day jail sentence for a driving under the influence conviction. Browns attorney and a spokesman for the city attorneys office say the R&B singer turned himself in at a Los Angeles courthouse Wednesday. Brown pleaded no contest to DUI and driving on a suspended license in February. He will also be required to serve four years on informal pro-bation and complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program after he is released. The conviction is Browns second for DUI in less than a year. He avoid-ed jail after pleading no contest to a March 2012 drunk driving case.Manager: Gaga recovers after hip surgery NEW YORK Lady Gagas manager says the pop star is doing unbelievable a month after she had hip surgery that caused her to cancel her U.S. tour.

CHAMB ER: Annual awards presented at luncheon Continued From Page 1Awere selected from among four citizens, five small businesses and six large businesses. Chamber members nominated people and organizations for the titles, and question-naires were sent to each nominee. A panel of eight judges selected this years winners. All of these businesses have really made Lake City a better place to live and work and play, said Joel Foreman, Chamber president. Were here to celebrate them. Anytime Fitness and Catholic Charities were also under consideration in the small business category. Columbia Bank and PotashCorp. of White Springs were nominated in the large business cat-egory. The winners were honored by their awards. I am very humbled to receive this award as Citizen of the Year by a community that I truly care about, Roberts said. I believe the Chamber is the heart and soul of the business community. There has to be a rallying point, and the Chamber is that. Both Foreman and Chamber President-elect John Kuykendall said Roberts deserved the title of Citizen of the Year. Kuykendall has known Roberts since 1994 through the Rotary Club. He didnt have to be involved in all of the things hes been involved in, Kuykendall said. Hes gone well above what the normal person would do for Lake City. Roberts has served as president for the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of Lake City, C.A.R.C, Third Circuit Bar Association, Columbia County Bar Association, Three Rivers Legal Services, Lake City-Columbia County UF Alumni Club, as well as serving three terms as the commanding general for the Olustee Festival, chief justice for the B.P.O.E Club, military coordinator for the Lake City Air Show, vice chair and trustee for the Lake City Medical Center and as chair for the Third Circuit nominating committee. Roberts was born in Union County, but he fell in love with Lake City when he attended Lake City Junior College. After graduating from the University of Florida, he moved here while pursuing his masters degree. From 1980 to 1984, Roberts served as a city councilman and attended University of Florida Law School. He also served in the Marine Corps and the Florida Army National Guard. Im very proud of him and his accomplishments, said Roberts wife, Tina. Roberts and his wife have been married for 38 years, and plan to cel-ebrate their anniversary on Friday. They have three children and three grand-children. Hes always put his family first, and is a very devoted father and grand-father, she said. Hes always found the time to give back to the communi-ty, no matter what he was doing, and hes instilled that in our children. Pro Motion and Lake City Medical Center repre-sentatives both thanked the Chamber for the honor. Six years ago, Pro Motion began as a small business hoping to provide a different environment for patients seeking physi-cal therapy. The owners, Melinda and Brian Sganga, wanted to offer one-on-one therapy. A few years ago, we got some really good advice from a business owner, Melinda said. You are your best resource. Brian said he and his wife have worked hard to build and maintain Pro Motion. In a small business world, change is what makes it happen, he said. If youre not changing, I truly believe youre fail-ing. Large business winner Lake City Medical Center has existed in its current spot since 1999, offering a wide variety of medical services including reha-bilitation, cardiology and general medicine. The medical center currently has 66 beds for general care and six for critical care. Construction has started on a third floor that will increase the facility to 99 beds. Ive never seen a community come together like this one, hospital CEO Mark Robinson said. What it boils down to for us is the people. We couldnt do it without all of you. CRASH: Woman killed Continued From Page 1AHolcys vehicle was struck in the front as the other vehicles went off the road. Chace, who was wearing a seat belt, was pro-nounced dead at the scene. The fuel tank on the log truck ruptured and spilled a small amount of diesel fuel onto the roadway and its shoulder, FHP said. U.S. 90 was closed for investigation and clean-up until about 3 p.m. No charges have been filed in connection with the crash, pending com-pletion of the investiga-tion, FHP said. COUNTY: Company wants help with site plan Continued From Page 1AManufacturing. The company plans to build a mulch manufacturing and commercial fire wood business. Suwannee Lumber submitted a Local Incentive Ordinance Application to the county Economic Development Department that requested assistance with drainage, infrastructure issues and site clean-up, according to a letter from county Administrative Manager Lisa Roberts. Frank Darabi, an engineer and president of Darabi and Associates, prepared a proposed site rehabilita-tion plan. Years of operations have resulted in the on-site storage of various mate-rials, which must be removed before any construction activities can com-mence, Darabi wrote in the proposal. The cost to prepare the site rehabilitation and improvement plan would be $14,500. Roberts notes that the study fee might be eligible for reimburse-ment if a rail spur were built to allow box car loading and shipment. Also on the meeting agenda is a public hearing on an ordinance amend-ment that would require paving of all private roads that are to be maintained by the county. County Manager Dale Williams said the amendment would reduce the number of options availiable for maintenance of private roads by the county. He said several years ago the county created a program that allowed residents to have the county main-tain private roads including dirt roads through a non ad valorem tax assessment. The ordinance states, Graded roads will not be permitted within the road maintenance service unit, and all references to grading or graded roads shall be deleted. Williams said the county does not now maintain any private dirt roads. BUDGET: Scott miffed Continued From Page 1Athe fiscal year that starts on July 1. The state is expected to take in an extra $3.5 billion in the coming year. Based on the lat-est forecast, legislators could set aside $1 billion in reserves, meet crucial needs such as increased student enrollment and still have roughly $1 bil-lion left over. Thats money that could be used for the pay raise, or tax cuts or even incentives sought by some of Floridas profes-sional sports teams Both the House and Senate are just beginning to work on budget propos-als. Its normally a process that isnt resolved until right before the end of the 60-day session. Scott, like past governors, has generally remained on the sidelines publicly while lawmakers begin work on the state budget. Former Gov. Jeb Bush one year did threat-en to veto the budget unless lawmakers agreed to put aside money for an education program he was championing. In his budget proposal Scott called for the state to set aside $480 million for teacher raises. Weatherford has hinted that the House would rath-er see teacher pay raises go to those teachers who receive high marks under a new evaluation system that has been put in place. That point of view has been echoed by Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville. FORT LAUDERDALE A South Florida couple has been convicted of exploiting a 94-year-old woman with dementia who prosecutors say dis-inherited her family and handed over her $10 mil-lion estate.

A jury on Tuesday found each of them guilty of one count of financial exploitation of an elderly person, which is a first-degree felony. Franke and Javellana are from Hollywood.

BY EMAIL: email@example.com 4AOPINIONC huck Hagel deserves praise -four words I did not expect to be writing -for announcing an expan-sion of the U.S. missiledefense system. Fourteen additional ground-based long-range missile interceptors are to be installed in Alaska by 2017 at a cost of $1 bil-lion. Their purpose: to destroy inter-continental ballistic missiles before those ICBMs reach their intended victims. Combined with interceptors in California, this will bring the total number of West Coast interceptors to 44. More praise will be due if this turns out to represent a broader change of heart on missile defense within the Obama administration. Consider: In 2001, Barack Obama, then an Illinois state senator, said flatly: I dont agree with a mis-sile-defense system. Seven years later, during his first presidential campaign, then-U.S. Sen. Obama pledged to slash $10 billion from the Pentagons missile defense budget -about $1 billion more than the U.S. was spending on missile defense at the time. Nevertheless, in 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the U.S. was prepared to provide a global missile defense umbrella. That would have been historic -but it never got off the ground (you should excuse the expression). Instead, missile-defense spending was cut by $1 billion that year, and there have been cuts every year since. In a speech to the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday, Rep. Mike Rogers, an Alabama Republican and chair-man of the House Armed Services Committees strategic forces sub-committee, charged that the dam-age done to missile defense by this Administration will take billions of dollars to undo, and finding that money is so much tougher now. For a very long time, Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl, just retired, argued strenuously for the development of a comprehensive system to protect America from missile attacks, both conventional and EMP (electromag-netic pulse). In a 2005 Washington Post op-ed, Kyle explained: A single Scud missile, carrying a single nuclear weapon, detonated at the appropriate altitude, would inter-act with the Earths atmosphere, producing an electromagnetic pulse radiating down to the surface at the speed of light. ... (T)he effect would be to knock out already stressed power grids and other electrical sys-tems across much or even all of the continental United States. ... Iran has surprised intelligence analysts by describing the mid-flight detona-tions of missiles fired from ships on the Caspian Sea as successful tests. North Korea exports missile tech-nology around the world. Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., and other members of the House Missile Defense Caucus also have attempted to make the pro-missile-defense argument. The Heritage Foundation produced a very good documentary film on the missile threat and the need to counter it. Quite a few scholars and opinion writers have beaten the drum as well. These efforts produced mea-ger results -at most, the cuts were not as deep as they might have been. So why the change now despite soaring debt and sequestration? For one, 28-year-old Kim Jong Un has turned out to be a chip off the old communist bloc -as bellicose a North Korean dictator as his father and grandfather before him. In recent days, Kim has threatened to launch nuclear attacks against both South Korea and the U.S. And Kim seems to be putting his missiles where his mouth is. His new road-mobile intercontinental ballistic mis-sile, which can be easily hidden and launched with little or no warning, represents a clear and present dan-ger to South Korea, Japan, Alaska and Hawaii. The Pentagon expects California, Oregon and Washington state to be within reach before very long, too. For these and other reasons, the imminent introduction of new inter-ceptors in Alaska points the U.S. in the right direction -but it should be only the beginning. The East Coast of the United States cannot be adequately protected by missile-defense interceptors in Alaska and California. Installing a third antimis-sile site on the East Coast would be prudent if this slice of America -which, if memory serves, has some fairly major population centers -is to be protected. It was 30 years ago this week that President Reagan first proposed that America build a global mis-sile-defense shield. He envisioned a nuclear strategy based not on the cold comfort of MAD (mutually assured destruction) but on devel-oping the capability to intercept and destroy strategic ballistic mis-siles before they reached our own soil or that of our allies. In 1983, science was not yet up to the task. Now we have the technological way, the question is: Do we have the will? Do Obama and his top advisers now agree with missile defense? C haos theory -no, not the operating principle of Congress -is the attempt to predict the consequences of systems that are so complex their functions seem to be random. A popular illustration of chaos theory is the butterfly effect, where a butterfly flapping its wings -say, deep in a South American jungle -sets off an escalating series of consequences until one of them becomes disastrously large, like a hurricane in the Atlantic. We seem to be dealing with the economic equivalent of the butter-fly effect with the banking crisis in Cyprus. Cyprus, a member of the European Union, has a population of only about 800,000 and a gross domestic product of $24.69 billion, by some estimates. But somehow its banking system, which The Wall Street Journal describes as opaque, has attracted $91 bil-lion in deposits. Much of that money is from Russia, from oligarchs who want their millions stashed safely away from the prying eyes and grasping hands of the Russian government. The situation is similar, but not quite analogous, to that of Iceland, which attracted huge deposits from the United Kingdom and, like Cyprus now, found itself in deep financial trouble when the time came to make good on those depos-its. There has already been a run on Cypriot banks, temporarily brought to a halt when the ATMs ran out of cash. The government closed the banks, at least until Thursday. Although Cyprus -and here is where the butterfly effect comes in -accounts for only 0.2 percent of the eurozone GDP, the fear is that the Cypriot panic will spread, causing runs on banks in larger, more eco-nomically significant countries like Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain. The European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the European Commission weighed in with an offer of a $13.07 billion bailout, but in return the lenders want Cyprus to raise $7.5 billion from bank depositors. Cyprus proposed to do this by imposing a 6.75 percent levy on bank accounts up to $130,000 and 9.9 percent on those above. Depositors, not surprisingly, are balking and the Cypriot parliament may balk. But the consensus seems to be that the percentages may change and the depositors and par-liament will come around. If the eurozone is lucky, the butterfly is just harmlessly flapping its wings. Cliff May Q Clifford D.

an update on Phase 1 of the project at the Columbia County Public Library West Branch to the TDC Board of Directors. The board could not make any recommenda-tions as it did not have a quorum for the meeting. The meeting continued, but no action was taken. The Columbia County Board of County Commissioners and the TDC approved the project early this year. it calls for $2.9 million in improve-ments to the complex to be done in four phases. Youth baseball was delegated the responsibility of managing the bulk of improvements at the facil-ity by the county commis-sion, Harvey Campbell, TDC executive director, said. The budget for the improvements calls for the TDC to spend $1,747,355, and the county to spend $1,179,102. The improvements in Phase One include bring-ing the bleachers and sidewalks into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Three new rest room/ concession buildings are also in Phase 1, as are repairs to the roofs of the softball dugouts and con-cession building. Muenchen reported three bids were received for the construction of the rest room/concession buildings. The total cost per bid would be $449,424, $419,700 and $408,801. Friday or Monday we will start construction, Muenchen said. ... Thats our plan. There is an issue that could stop the plan. The county and TDC had directed metal roofs be placed on the rest room/concession buildings, but youth baseball has con-cerns about the roofs suf-fering dents from base-balls and softballs. The netting and shading that would protect the roofs from damage will not be in place until later. Youth baseball recommends shingle roofing be built. Before construction begins, Muenchen said, youth baseball wants clar-ification on the type of roofs for the buildings. Clarification could be made at the todays coun-ty commission meeting at 5:30 p.m. at the School Board Administrative Complex.

OBITUARIES COLLEGES: Economic impacts total $26.6 billion Continued From Page 1Aalways seem to be the lead dog in the race, and I think the colleges are finally deciding to stand up, he said. We know what were doing, we know how successful it is and our students know, but other people dont always remember that. Its important to get the word out and let people know what the colleges are doing. The study showed that the 28 colleges serve one out of every 21 Floridians and 88 percent of FCS graduates are employed or are con-tinuing their education within one year of graduation. The study also noted that the average salary of FCS bachelors degree graduates is $46,186 and the aver-age starting salary of FCS associate degree graduates is $44,095. Hall said he did not have an estimated dollar amount just for FGCs impact on the local economy. We dont have those figures, he said. Weve looked and we dont have them. We just dont know. We know that our students are out there and theyre significantly a part of the economy, and were contribut-ing members to the economy. I think 88 percent of the people who went to school in the Florida College System are still in Florida. The students are here, were training them, theyre staying and thats what we want them to do. Hall said he believes the studys findings were released Tuesday because its time for legislators to pass the state budget and FCS officials want legislators to know what the colleges are doing. Its kind of strategically planned, he said. The governor is getting ready to make a run for his second election, and the legislature is get-ting ready to start putting the budget together. So, its a perfect time to tell people: Hey, heres who we are and this is what were doing, at a time when the governor wants more jobs and more money in the economy. Florida College System schools offer a range of certificates and degrees that prepare students for the workforce. The study indicated that for every $1 students invest in FCS, they receive a cumulative $6 in higher income over the course of their careers.

PROJECT: Work to start Continued From Page 1A Cancer fighting partnership
By LINDSEY TANNER AP Medical Writer CHICAGO Want to know how much a hip replacement will cost? Many hospitals wont be able to tell you, at least not right away if at all. And if you shop around and find centers that can quote a price, the amounts could vary astronomically, a study found. Routine hip replacement surgery on a healthy patient without insurance may cost as little as $11,000 or as much as $126,000. Thats what researchers found after calling hospitals in every state, 122 in all, asking what a healthy 62year-old woman would have to pay to get an artificial hip. Hospitals were told the made-up patient was the callers grandmother, had no insurance but could afford to pay out of pocket thats why knowing the cost information ahead of time was so important. About 15 percent of hos pitals did not provide any price estimate, even after a researcher called back as many as five times. The researchers were able to obtain a complete price estimate including physician fees from close to half the hospitals. But in most cases, that took con tacting the hospital and doc tor separately. Our calls to hospitals were often greeted by uncertainty and confusion, the researchers wrote. We were frequently transferred between departments, asked to leave messages that were rarely returned, and told that prices could not be estimated without an office visit. Many hospitals are just completely unprepared for cost questions, said Jaime Rosenthal, a Washington University student who coauthored the report. Most hospitals arent intentionally hiding costs, theyre just not used to patients asking. Thats par ticularly true for patients with health insurance who dont bother to ask because they know insurance will cover it, said co-author Dr. Peter Cram, a researcher at the University of Iowas medical school. But he said thats likely to change as employers increasingly force workers to share more health care costs by paying higher copayments and deductibles, making patients more moti vated to ask about costs. A California study pub lished last year about sur gery to remove an appendix found similar cost dispari ties. Commenting on the study, American Hospital Association spokeswoman Marie Watteau said hospi tals have a uniform set of charges. Sharing meaning ful information, however, is challenging because hospi tal care is unique and based on each individual patients needs. She said states and local hospital associations are the best source for pricing data, and that many states already require or encour age hospitals to report pric ing information and make that data available to the public. U.S. insurance compa nies typically negotiate to pay less than the billing price. Insured patients health plans determine what they pay, while uninsured patients may end up paying the full amount. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER HEALTH THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 2013 Page Editor: Jim Barr 754-0424 6AHealth S O U T H E R N INTERNAL MEDICINE S O U T H E R N INTERNAL MEDICINE Specializing in adult medical care including: Dr. Guy S.

Routine hip replacement surgery on a healthy patient may cost as little as $11,000 or up to nearly $126,000. Toohey said he has good health insurance that covered most of the costs, and it didnt occur to him to ask about price beforehand. Patients bills can vary substantially for same work. Medicaid plan revealed By GARY FINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE The decision to offer Medicaid coverage to roughly 1 mil lion Florida residents under the federal health law is trig gering partisan bickering amid competing proposals to pass up billions of federal dollars entirely or to accept the money but funnel it into private insurance. A week after House and Senate committees in the Republican-led legislature vetoed expanding Medicaid, two very different Medicaid expansion proposals are emerging in the Senate. Sen. Joe Negron wants to offer residents vouchers to purchase private insurance. But its unclear whether fel low Republican lawmakers will accept federal dollars to pay 100 percent of the programs costs for three years or shun the offer and rely on state dollars. Under President Barack Obamas health care law, the feder al government would pay the entire cost of Medicaid expansion for three years, with the federal share grad ually dropping to 90 per cent. Negron said hes confi dent his bill is laid out in a way that would qualify for funds under The Affordable Care Act. He hopes to have a program ready for enrollees beginning in October. The majority of the residents newly eligible for coverage are childless adults. The money that is avail able is paid for by taxpayers of Florida. I voted against expanding Medicaid. I dont support doing it that way, Negron said Tuesday. We dont want to do it the Washington way. We want to do it the Florida way. Republican Gov. Rick Scott is already voicing sup port for Negrons proposal. Scott said it is in line with his desire to helping the states uninsured while it is 100 percent federally funded. Im confident that we have enough time left dur ing the session that the Legislature will do the right thing, Scott said. The Stuart Republican lawmaker wants Florida Healthy Kids to oversee the program, saying it has a good track record with the state and strong doc tor participation. Insurers under Negrons plan would be required to spend 85 percent of their funds on health services a measure that protects forprofit companies from scrimping on patient care. The Senate Appropriations Committee is expected to take up Negrons proposal Thursday. Meanwhile, Sen. Aaron Bean wants to pass up the free federal dollars and instead use state funds to help residents pay for a basic insurance plan. Bean and several other conserva tive lawmakers have spo ken out against the so-called Obamacare law, saying the federal government cant afford the money its bor rowing and they dont want Floridians to contribute to the federal governments lack of fiscal sobriety. Bean is slated to pres ent his proposal Wednesday to the Senate Health Policy Committee. Lawmakers have until early May to pass a proposal and send it to Scott. Both plans would require residents to pay premiums and co-pays. Negrons bill doesnt go into details of co-pays and premiums but he said fed eral regulations allow mod est co-pays of around $3.80 for a hospital visit for those living below 100 percent of the poverty level. Health officials: 1 in 50 school kids have autism By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer NEW YORK A gov ernment survey of parents says 1 in 50 U.S. schoolchil dren has autism, surpassing another federal estimate for the disorder. Health officials say the new number doesnt mean autism is occurring more often. But it does suggest that doctors are diagnos ing autism more frequently, especially in children with milder problems. The earlier government estimate of 1 in 88 comes from a study that many consider more rigorous. It looks at medical and school records instead of relying on parents. For decades, autism meant kids with severe language, intellectual and social impairments and unusual, repetitious behav iors. But the definition has gradually expanded and now includes milder, relat ed conditions. The new estimate released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would mean at least 1 million children have autism. The number is important government officials look at how common each illness or disorder is when weighing how to spend lim ited public health funds.

Palatka mounts late rally to beat TigersFrom staff reportsColumbia Highs baseball team looked like it was on its way to picking up a vic-tory against Palatka High at the baseball grounds in Jacksonville on Tuesday, but a late rally left the Tigers on the wrong end of a 3-2 contest. Leading 2-1 in the seventh, the Tigers gave up two runs off back-to-back hits from Blake Summers and Cody Reed to produce RBIs. Caleb Vaughn suffered the loss after pitching 6 23 innings. Head coach Jonathan Ulsh offered up a simple reason for the Tigers struggles. We didnt hit, didnt win, Ulsh said. The Tigers lost a pair of contest at Chiles High as Columbia took on Hoover High (Ala.) and the hosting Timberwolves. In the opening game, the Tigers fell, 11-1, against Hoover. The Tigers one run came off of Dalton Mauldins RBI to score Sam Bass. Bass reached on a double earlier in the inning. The Tigers had two hits in the contest. Mauldin took the loss after pitching three innings and giving up five runs off of six hits and a walk. Vaughn pitched in relief and gave up one earned run off of two hits, which were both doubles. Columbia fell behind 11-0 against Chiles before battling back to fall 12-7. Levi Hollingsworth, Kaleb Thomas, Brent Stalter and Mauldin each had two hits in the contest. Thomas delivered three RBIs, while Mauldin had two. Hollingsworth, Bass and Mauldin each scored two runs and Stalter crossed the plate once. Stalter took the loss after pitching two innings and giving up five earned runs off of five hits. He struck out three batters and walked two. Columbia (2-12, 1-1 district) will travel to Wolfson High at 6:30 p.m. today for a district contest. The Tigers close out the week at Fort White High at 3 p.m. on Saturday.Lady Tigers tennisColumbia Highs girls tennis team closed out its regular season at Suwannee High on Tuesday. In a rebuilding year, the Lady Tigers put on one of their strongest perfor-mances, but came up short against the Lady Bulldogs. Suwannee High picked up the match win with a 5-2 victory. The Lady Tigers Paula Giminez picked up a win in her No. 2 singles match and Haley Wheeler picked up a win in the No. 5 slot. The Lady Tigers are off for spring break and dont have another match sched-uled this season. Columbia will compete in the district tournament at Jonesville Tennis Complex in Gainesville on April 1.
DEAR ABBY: My 22-year-old daughter became pregnant from a guy she had dated only a few months, but never seriously. After weeks of wondering what she was going to do, she decided that terminating her preg-nancy was the best thing to do considering she has limited income and still lives with me. I, however, am pro-life, although I do feel that in cases of rape or incest it is acceptable. My daughter knows how I feel about this. I supported her in her decision, but did not agree with it. Abby, I have taken this really hard. I have cried every day since she had the abortion, and Im torturing myself thinking this is my fault because I went against everything I believe in when I support-ed her in her decision. Why am I beating myself up about this? Is it because shes my daugh-ter, because I am pro-life or both? How can I stop blaming myself for her decision? -TORTURED IN THE SOUTH DEAR TORTURED: The decision about whether or not to terminate the pregnancy wasnt yours to make; it was your daughters. Being pro-life, you have your own convic-tions, but you acted as a loving parent should -you supported your child. If you feel you could benefit from counseling to help you through this, ask your doctor for a referral. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are having a disagreement and Im won-dering if you could weigh in. We keep a handgun hid-den in a locked safe in our bedroom. (An access code is required to open it.) We also have a 1 1/2-year-old daughter. On the recommendations of a co-worker, we recently hired a baby sit-ter whom we used for an evening while we attended a party. She seemed like a nice young lady. My problem is, when she arrived, my husband immediately announced that we had a gun upstairs. He felt it was her right to know. I think, because the gun isnt accessible, the information was use-less to her and actually may have put our family in danger. How do we know she wont mention it to someone who will target us for a break-in in order to steal it? To me, having a (SECURED) firearm in our house is no one elses business but ours. What do you think? -NOT THE WILD WEST DEAR NOT THE WILD WEST: I think you are cor-rect. Your husband exhibit-ed poor judgment by shar-ing what should have been confidential information. ** ** **DEAR ABBY: My colleagues and I are con-cerned about a close friend and co-worker. He insists that its not against the law to read books while driving. He says he does it only on highways because everyone is going the same speed and direction and you only need periph-eral vision. In every other aspect of his life, this man fol-lows the rules to the letter and is a highly respected teacher. Is it true that this is legal? -CONCERNED IN OHIO DEAR CONCERNED: Of course not! A distracted driver who is reading books is at least as danger-ous as one who is eating, texting, applying makeup, shaving or talking on a cellphone. This highly respected teacher doesnt have my respect; hes a menace on the highway. DILBERT BABY BLUES HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dont fold under pressure. Watch what everyone does and make a decision based on facts. A new beginning will bring you greater choice, but its up to you to take the first step. Alone time will help you sort through your thoughts. ++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): Be a leader, do your thing and make your dreams come true. Helping others will enhance your reputation and give you a chance to show everyone what you can do. Show off a little. It will do you good and build your confidence. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stand back so you dont lose sight of what everyone else is up to. Put everything you know into play once you feel confident that you are in control. Consider criticism an act of jealousy. Dont underestimate the compe-tition. +++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dont feel the need to make a move. Impulse is the enemy, especially when it comes to your rep-utation. Youll find creative ways to get what you want. Develop your skills or update your approach and revisit old clients, friends or lovers. +++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep everything out in the open for all to see. Its important to deliver exact-ly what you are promising. Additional responsibilities will be dumped in your lap if you arent truthful. Fix up or invest in your home and personal finances. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Favors will be granted. Get involved in organiza-tions that can help you get ahead or enhance your reputation. Relationships are on the rise, and mak-ing a promise to some-one you think is special will bring high returns. ++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Jumping to conclu-sions or making assump-tions will lead to trouble. You are best to concen-trate on what you can do to maintain what youve worked so hard to acquire. Listen carefully to what your colleagues or superi-ors are saying. ++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do things differently and you will draw a crowd. Believing in your skills and talent is half the battle. You will impress someone with your thoughtfulness as well as with your vision. Dont let home improvements go over budget. +++++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): It will be difficult to know which way to turn. Having too many choices or too many people inter-fering in your decision is likely to lead to taking on too much when you should be sizing down. Rethink your strategy. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Easy does it. You are likely to be misinter-preted if you are too hasty in the way you present your objective. Discuss how your plans will affect others and you will avoid unnecessary opposition as well as helpful sugges-tions. +++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Consider your attributes. With a couple of slight changes to the way you present what you have to offer, you can turn something you enjoy doing into a prosperous endeav-or. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Networking will bring good results. Engage in functions that allow you to promote a concept you have been developing. Updating your image or indulge in self-improve-ment projects that will boost your confidence. Love and romance should end your day. +++++ CELEBRITY CIPHER Abigail Van Burenwww.dearabby.com BLONDIE BEETLE BAILEY B.C.
