High Springs looks



to bridge gap in



revenue shortfall
Water rates may increase


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -
Money and water. Society
demands one to survive and
biology demands the other,
and High Springs is running
low on both. In a special
commission meeting
Monday evening, city staff
and commissioners, water
and wastewater experts,
and residents mulled over
how to compensate for
revenue shortages and what
direction the city sewer
project should take.
The city's water utility
has been running on a
mounting deficit for the past
three year, losing revenue
in the face of foreclosures


and vacant buildings, and
budget transfers continue
to be made to other city
accounts.
As an "enterprise fund,"
money from the city water
account is transferred as
payments to the general
fund. As explained by
the city's finance director
Helen Mclver, activities
performed in the licensing
and billing department are
budgeted under general
funds, but the activities are
associated with the water
utility, so the water account
must reimburse .the general
fund.
This practice is standard

acres of dry grass land Friday afternoon. Strong winds stoked the flames up a hill
close to a vacant house, but there were no reports of fire damage to the structure.

caused a debris fire to reignite Friday
afternoon in Alachua. Donna Blalock
of Alachua said her husband had
been burning yard debris early in the
morning and believed the fire was fully
extinguished'when they left their home at
Shaw Farms in Alachua.


Blalock said when they arrived back
at home later that day, her husband went
out to what was left of the debris fire and
used a rake to make sure it was burned
out. "When he did that, the wind caught it
and the fire just took off," she said.
"Within 15 minutes, the fire had made

No merger for Sheriff and

By PATRICIA HOYOS
Today Reporter
ALACHUA COUNTY
- After encountering much
opposition, the proposed
plan to merge the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office
and the Gainesville Police
Department has come to its
end.
The county's legislative
delegation decided
Monday to withdraw the
bill. The Gainesville City
Commission had strongly
opposed the consolidation
idea.
The Alachua Police
Department and the High
Springs Police Department
had taken no position in
the issue since the bill
wouldn't have impacted

Joel DeCoursey Jr. had
said, "We don't have a dog

Waldo Chief of Police
M.A. Szabo had also said
that the merger would
not affect the residents
of Waldo, but he also
didn't see it benefiting


Gainesville. "I think the

officers it has," he said.
The bill was created
by the Police Benevolent

at a vacant neighboring
home.
Shortly after noon,
firefighters from Alachua
County Fire Rescue were
called to the scene along
with a Florida Division of
Forestry truck. The fire
had burned about 18 acres
of mostly dry grassy land,
but it also moved into an
adjacent lightly wooded
area, burning nearly all of
the underbrush.
Driven by a constant
and swift wind Friday,
the fire raced up a pasture
toward the vacant home,
burning the grass on all
sides. There was no visible
damage to any structures as
a result of the fire.
Firefighters and


Division of Forestry
officials gained control
of the fire shortly after
arriving by cutting a path
around it to prevent further
spreading. They remained
at the scene dousing the
smoldering underbrush in
the wooded lot for several
hours.
"Thanks to those
firefighters. They did such
a wonderful job at getting
over here and stopping the
fire," Blalock said.
Despite recent rains,
burning can still be risky
according to Ludie Bond,
a Wildfire Mitigation
Specialist with the Florida
Division of Forestry.
"Oftentimes, people
think that because it rained,


it's safe to burn," Bond
said, adding, "But the dead
and dry grass absorbs little
moisture and dries out
quickly, making it more
likely to catch fire."
The grass fire in
Shaw Farms was just
one in Alachua on Friday
afternoon. Another fire,
closer to Interstate 75 in
Alachua scorched some
50 acres and forced the
shutdown of traffic on
the highway for a short
time Friday. That fire was
reportedly also the result
of a homeowner burning
debris.

My true love gave me a city


We don't live in a city. In fact, the
closest city is an.hour away from where we
live. When we go to the city, my kids are
fascinated by some of the sights.
It's not like we don't have these things
where we live, it's the sheer abundance of
them in the city that is so amazing to them.
I didn't know that they could
be amazed and bored at the
same time, however. It seems to
happen only when there isn't a
computer screen or a TV nearby
to distract them from their
amazement. Boredom causes
strange things to happen. Some
might say that strange can be
good, but my children would
.deny that to their dying day.
At one point on our trip to
the city, one of them had a song
stuck in their head leftover from Laura
Christmas. This song is all
about what someone's true love
gave them for Christmas.
Moder-day economists like to suck all
the joy out of this song by tallying up what
such gifts as six geese a'laying and five
'golden rings might cost in today's market.
As if anyone would want to give up their
bathtub to seven, count 'em seven, swans
a'swimming, even if it was the thought that
counts.
As far as I know, some of these gifts
given by the anonymous true love are more
like events that could'happen randomly
if you were in the right place at the right
time. For example, there is no way to give
a person a live partridge in a live pear tree
unless you happened upon one on your
daily stroll through the pear orchard. Or


perhaps you may have attended the Macy's
Thanksgiving Day Parade and video-taped
all the drummers drumming, and pipers
piping (which surely totaled more than 11
or 12) and gave the tape to your true love.
However, the only time you might
witness ten Lords a'leaping is if someone
set Parliament on fire. So
it goes without saying
that the traditional gifts
one gives to one's love on
SChristmas have changed.
This doesn't keep
people, including my
-children from updating
(some might. say
butchering) the song by
changing the gifts to things
that make sense in this
century.
Snyder If going to the city was
nyer a spectacular event for
them, you can understand
why they might be moved to capture the
experience in a song commemorating all
the "gifts" they were given during this
event. Of course, we must remember that
without "boredom," this song never would
have happened.
10. Green Lights I was whining about
the red lights we kept hitting, so every
green light was a blessing.
9. Taxi Cabs Taxis are rare where
we live. My children always thought they
were a myth.
8. Garbage Cans -Apparently we have
a scarcity of garbage cans in our town,
because my kids thought the fact that there
was a receptacle for trash on every corer
was outstanding. If only city dwellers


would use them.
7. Surly Bums This one wasn't
a positive aspect of the city, merely an
observation that when one, was spotted,
they almost always looked angry unless
they were asking you for money. We did
not judge, but there was a lively discussion
about the adjective that should be used
here. Surly won because it sounded...
awesome!
6. Chinese Restaurants Obviously my
children like Chinese buffets. Including
them in the song was simply an effort to
remind me, often, where they wanted to eat
dinner that night.
5. Tall Buildings This was the easy.
one they chose for the part of the song that
crescendos to enthusiastic, off-key chaos.
4. Stop Signs Where there wasn't a
red light, there was a stop sign.
3. Match Box cars My youngest boy
was getting fidgety. and was thrilled to
realize that I had brought these in the event
that he should become so.
2. Fuzzy Puppies These were being
walked by a harassed young lady who was
trying to keep them from tripping anybody.
The puppies were decidedly not fuzzy,
being possible descendants of naked mole
rats, but my children needed an adjective
with two syllables.
1. A Baby In A Car Seat Said baby
smiled at my daughter from a car in the
next lane. She said the baby deserved to be
number one. Can't argue with that!

VAUSE:
Continued from page Al

Vause and Surrency's previous work


relationship raised conflict of interest issue


mayor advisory panel from 2007 to 2008
and was also chair of the planning and
zoning board for the City of Hawthorne.
"Because' she is from Hawthorne,"
said Vice Mayor Matthew Surrency, "she
has a feeling for what's going on in the
community and what its needs are."
But things won't be easy. With a
budget that is still unbalanced, Vause has
a lot on her plate.
"It's a challenge right now," she
said. "In the last three years, we've had
three different clerks, city managers
and accounting programs, so I think
transferring information and getting on
top of everything is going to be our main
goal."
According to City Commissioner
William Carlton, open communication
between the interim city manager and the
commission is key in improving the city's
condition. "Our city only has one way to
go and that's up," he said. "If we continue
to have this transparency, where we know
what's going on, it will be really good for
US."
In a meeting prior to Vause's hiring,
commission members decided the salary


for the interim position would be $800
per week with no benefits. "Since we are
not familiar with the status of our budget,
we thought $800 would be appropriate,"
Surrency said. "We'll start with that and
once we get a balanced budget, we'll go
from there."
Aside from her city involvement,
Vause also served as the president of
Florida Septic Inc., a local company in
which Surrency is also an employee. The
company is now run by other members of
the Vause family.
When asked whether Vause and
Surrency's previous work together could
create a potential conflict of interest,
Carlton said, "I hope not. That was my
first concern as well, but I've known
her family, especially her father, for a
long time and I don't think there is any
conflict."
According to Surrency, Vause stepped
down as president of the company in
November 2010, before the commission
had decided to take any action with the
city manager position. She is now a
consultant for the company.
"She is no longer in charge of any


day-to-day operations," he said. "She's
just an employee like me now."
As Vause tries to clean up the mess
that former city manager Ed Smyth has
left for her, the city commission will
continue to look for someone to fill the
permanent city manager position.
According to Surrency, the
commission is working with the
International City/County Management
Association's (ICMA) Range Rider
program to find someone to fill the
permanent position. The Range Riders
are retired city and county managers who
volunteer to counsel their colleagues.
Those who put their application in
for the interim position are still being
considered for the permanent spot as
well, Surrency said.
As of now, the commission is unsure
of when they will hire a permanent city
manager. "It could be anywhere from 90
days to six months to a year," Surrency
said, "but the Range Riders think we can
do it relatively quickly in the three-to-six-
month time range."

ROBBERY:
Continued from page A4


Suspect


has several


felonies on


his record

Alachua County Sheriff's K9 unit,
officers established a perimeter and
found Prose hiding inside a cow
feeder. He was arrested and charged
with armed robbery and resisting
arrest. A search yielded about $100
in cash.
Although officers believe Prose
never had a weapon, he could still
be charged with armed robbery, said
APD Officer Jesse Sandusky.
Armed robbery, a first-degree
felony, carries a penalty of up to
30 years in prison. Prose, who has
several felonies on his record and
was arrested in late November on
charges of simple battery, faces a
lengthy sentence if charged with
and convicted of armed robbery.

Cindy Tompkins named High Springs

Community School Teacher of the Year


Masters at the University of
Florida and landed at Santa
Fe High School, where he
teaches ninth through 121
graders in band, jazz band,
chorus and piano.
When asked what his
instrument of choice is, he
proudly proclaims, "I'm a
percussionist."
Now 30, he's been
playing the drums since
third grade.
"Music education'
seemed like the natural path
for me," he said.
"Teaching music," he
continued, "is an absolute
passion...for me, it's about
the process...seeing how
students' lives are changed
by it."
Bisco sees this
recognition as an honor,
and for him it served to
reaffirm that all the hard


work put in does pay off.
Since coming to SFHS,
he started the choral
program there, which he
said is unique because most
schools in the county don't
have one.
Arts education -
whether it's music or acting
or painting, he said, is
important.
"Through the process
of making music, kids get a
rewarding experience."
At High Springs
Community School, eighth-
grade science teacher Cindy
Tompkins was recognized
as teacher of the year after
refusing nominations in the
past.
Tompkins has been
teaching for 27 years. She
possesses an impressive
level of expertise in her area
and she's dedicated to kids'


success both reasons, said
Principal Jeffrey Means,
that she was selected.
She has a knack for
relating scientific concepts
in the classroom to everyday
life, he explained, and she
does "fantastic, in-depth
laboratory experiments."
Means noted that while
she has a good rapport with
her students, she doesn't try
to be their friend.
"There's a mutual
respect," he said.
Of being selected,
Tompkins said, "I am
honored to represent the
outstanding teachers who
help make High Springs
Community School the
outstanding school that it
is."

among most comparable
local municipalities.
However, when the city
began experiencing losses
in water revenues, it
didn't adjust the transfers
proportionately.
Adding to the city's
financial woes is the
expense of the community's
ongoing sewer project.
City Commissioner
Dean Davis said many
residents thought it was
a bad idea from the start,
but the city entered into an
agreement with the USDA's
Rural Development agency
for financing of a municipal
wastewater treatment
system.
The project has been
conducted in phases, and
the next scheduled phase
of the project is on hold
pending the validation of an
approximately $4 million
federal bond to fund it.
' Included in the next
phase is an -expansion of
the existing wastewater
treatment plant.
Due to the city's cash
shortage, created in part by
declining water revenues,
there is concern that the
city's bond issuance will

"This gives us a good
chance to start some of
the dialogue that we need
to start having sooner than
later," said Commissioner
Susan Baird.
According to a report
by Alachua County Public
Works, 85 percent of roads
in the county need some
kind of repair. Public
Works' 2010 pavement
condition analysis showed
that' if the roads aren't
fixed, they will continue
to rapidly get worse.
Currently, 49 percent of
roads need major repair
and 8 percent of roads need
structural repair.
"We feel like this is
the effective way to fix a
problem ofthis magnitude,"
said David Cerlanek,


not be approved. Without
it, construction will be
at a standstill until an
alternative source of
funding can be secured.
Regardless of public
opinion on whether
expansion of the waste
water treatment system is
popular, the plant is fast
approaching capacity.
If the plant isn't
expanded, the city is at risk
of regulation violations
and could incur "severe
fines" or "the possibility"
of the system being shut
down, explained city
utilities superintendent Don
Deadwyler.
If the city can't produce
evidence of financial
stability, the bond to fund
the sewer plant expansion
won't be issued. City
Manager Jenny Parham
has yet to hear back on
whether the bond has been
approved, but for now the
waste water treatment plant
depends on those funds for
the next phase.
Commissioners

The Public Works
report said that the gas tax
revenue is not sufficient
to solve the county's road
problem. The proposed
sales tax is supposed to
generate enough revenues,
to fix the problem.
During the public
comments portion of
the meeting, several
attacks were made on the
commission and how it has
handled the budget in the
past.
"We've been spending
on our wishes and ignoring
our needs," said one county
resident. This ending

Hawthorne looks to account


for Wild Spaces funds


By MISHRI BHATIA
Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE The Hawthorne City
Commission made a motion to create a
separate bank account designated for the
Wild Spaces & Public Places money at a
commission meeting Tuesday night.
Interim City Manager Ellen Vause
said opening a separate account from the
general fund is the first step in getting the
money to where it should be.
The Wild Spaces & Public Places
program allocated $142,898.65 to the
City of Hawthorne through an initiative
approved by voters in November 2008
that raised the sales tax by one-half cent
to conserve land and improve recreation
facilities. As of Dec. 31, 2010, the city had
spent $27,800.73 on recreation, leaving a
current balance of $115,472.92.
This money, which was deposited into
the city's general fund, was unaccounted for


Christian Popoli reviewed
the city's rate history and
billing structure, proposing
an increase on the base rate,
from the current $6 for the
first 3,000 gallons used to
$14.
Commissioner Eric
May estimated the increase
would impact about 27
percent of water utility
users. Those with higher
usage would also see an
increase in their bills, he
explained, but it would not
be as extreme.
"It's almost like a
regressive tax," he said,
"because it hits the minimal
users the hardest."
May said he was against
raising rates, and suggested
that the city review the
general fund and cut costs
where possible. This should
be done, he said, before
passing the financial burden
on to the taxpayers.
One resident suggested
looking at increasing solid,
waste rates instead, saying
there is a broader customer
base and would result in a
smaller burden spread over
more people.
Parham said it would
hypothetically be allowed


criticized the county
acquiring land and
narrowing of Main Street
in Gainesville instead of
spending the money on
roads. Others suggested the
county tighten its budget
and look for funds for the
road management program
elsewhere.
If the commission
decides to support the
referendum, the decision
of whether to implement
the one-cent tax would go
to the voters in the 2012
election.
Commission Chair Lee
Pinkoson said, "I would
stay tuned, and we'll see
where this conversation
goes."

and possibly spent on other expenditures.
"It is not uncommon for the money to
be put into the general fund," Vause said.
"But we need to ensure that the money goes
into the designated Wild Spaces projects."
Creating a separate account will serve
as an "internal central mechanism to make
sure the money is spent properly," Vause
said.
She hopes that with help from the
Alachua County Office for Management
and Budget, she will come up with a
payment plan for the Wild Spaces money
by the next commission meeting on Feb.
15.
"I am confident that we can get it done
and have the money available for the
designated Wild Spaces projects within 24
months," Vause said.

Plow Days this weekend


at Dudley Farm


By RACHEL RAKOCZY
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY Dudley
Farm Historic State Park
will host its annual Plow
Days on Friday and
Saturday.
The event allows the
public to take a step back in
time to see how fields were
plowed before tractors
became a farmer's best
friend.
"We no longer plow
with horses and mules,"
said event coordinator
Ashley Pass. "This is a way
for people to see how things
were done in the past."
Draft horses, mules
and oxen will be at the
event so park volunteers
can demonstrate how crop
fields were plowed for
spring planting. There will
be farmstead hosts to tell


the history of the houses
and do laundry the old-
fashioned way, but the
focus will be on the fields,
Pass said.
Public information
specialist Kristin Lock, from
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
said Plow Days is unique
in the state park system. It
began on a smaller scale
in 1996 as invitation-only
before Dudley Farm opened
in 2001, she said.
Admission is $5 per
vehicle up to eight people
on the day of the event, as
on any other park day. The
event lasts from 10 a.m. to
2 p.m.


Friday is geared toward
students and Saturday is
for the general public. Pass
said she hopes to have a
larger turnout this year.
"We expect more
people than last year," she
said. "There was very low
attendance because of the
weather."
Dudley Farm also
hosts three other events
throughout the year: An
Evening at Dudley, Quilt
Show and Cane Day,
according to the Dudley
Farm Web site.

Ask Your Dentist
by Douglas M. Adel, D.D.S.

Dental home first aid kit


.Q: What should I keep
on hand for dental first aid?
A: Your first step in a
dental emergency should
be to see if your dentist is
available. But since that
won't always he the case,
here are some items you
should have available until
you can get to the dentist's
office: A mild pain reliever
like aspirin or acetaminophen
to help get you through the
early stage of a toothache.
A topical, over-the-counter-
anesthetic ointment pr liquid,
like Anbesol or Campho-
Phenique, to apply to mouth
sores. Sterile gauze pads to
staunch bleeding. Dental
wax, which you can get from
your dentist and is excellent
for covering a protruding or
irritating wire from braces


or to temporarily cover the
sharp edge of a chipped
tooth.
Some techniques you
can use at home include
dissolving plain table salt or
baking soda in warm water to
make a soothing mouthwash
in the event of pain from
irritation inside the mouth
or toothache. Also, you can
make an effective icepack by
putting ice cubes in a plastic
bag and wrapping the bag
with a damp dishtowel. It's
a good practice to keep your
dentist's phone number in a
prominent place, along with
the location of the nearest
hospital emergency room.
Talk with your dentist about
how you should react to
dental emergencies at home
or at work.

within city policy.
While the meeting
focused on the debate
over raising water
rates, Jon Dinges of the
Suwannee River Water
Management District
made a presentation about
declining groundwater
supply in North Florida
and the issue of demand
surpassing supply. His
message was that the entire
district, including High
Springs, must start looking
at, alternative water sources
"and be acutely conscious of
water conservation.
Dinges said the city's
sewer system could prove
to be a great asset in the
future, as reclaimed water
can offer multiple uses as
an alternative to what's left
in the ground.
No official action was
taken during the meeting,
and discussion concerning
water rates and the city's
financial condition is
scheduled to resume at
the Feb. 10 commission
meeting.

IMPROVEMENTS:
Continued from page A I


Project to include realignment


of U.S. Highway 441 intersection


sector.
In addition to paving,
current plans also call for
replacing the existing four-
way stop with a roundabout
at the intersection, one of
the busiest in the downtown
area. The project's scope
also entails an entirely new
underground storm water
management system using
crates or cages that would
be installed underneath
the Skinner Park baseball
field. Engineers working
on the plan expect the
underground system to
provide a significant
improvement in reducing
flooding during heavy
rains.
In keeping with the
design theme of the Main
Street and downtown area,
both NW 142nd Terrace
and NW 150th Avenue
will also have curbs, storm
gutters, sidewalks, red brick
crosswalks and paved side-
street parking. The project
would constitute the first
major aesthetic 'connection
between the Main Street
and Alachua Towne Centre
areas.
Although not depicted
in the latest renderings,
a portion of NW 142nd
Terrace is slated to be
shifted eight feet westward.
The move would not only
pull the sidewalks further
away from the scout hut
located along the road, but


or mo

it would also allow for a
realignment of NW 142nd
Terrace at U.S. Highway
441 to make the intersection
more perpendicular. The
two roads meet at an angle
that often impedes driver
visibility.
The costs of the
improvements are being
funded through the city's
Downtown Redevelopment
Trust Board (DRTB), a
community redevelopment
agency. A portion of ad
valorem taxes paid by
property owners in the
downtown district to
the City of Alachua and
Alachua County are set
aside for projects of the
DRTB each year.
Just last year, NW 150th
Avenue east of Main Street
was repaved and updated
through the DRTB. The
agency was also responsible
for reconstructing Main
Street to include its
distinctive curve and red
brick crosswalks decades
ago.
Engineering plans for the
NW 142nd Terrace and NW
150th Avenue project are
about 90 percent complete,
city officials say. The
acquisition of land and land
rights necessary for the
overhaul is expected to take
a few months.

only three games remaining
in the regular season, the
Santa Fe High School boys
basketball team cruised
past the Union County

Union County didn't
get on the board until
midway through the first
quarter and trailed Santa
Fe the entire game. At the
end of the first, the Raiders
were up 18-4, and closed
out the half up 31-18.
Santa Fe maintained
their lead into the third
quarter, scoring 8 points to
the Wildcats' 12, taking a
39-30 lead into the fourth
quarter. That was as close
as Union County would
come, as Santa Fe came on
strong in the final quarter,
scoring 25 points to the
opponent's 13.
Leading in scoring was
Santa Fe senior point guard
C.J. Wakeley with a game
high 23 points, including
a trio of 3-pointers in the
fourth quarter. Junior
forward Marcus Gaddy led
in rebounds with 7 while
Wakeley led with 3 steals.
Wakeley, senior forward
Diante Davis and senior
forward Shaquan Jones led
in assists with 2 each.

Imagine the most
devastating human
virus ever created, then
imagine it in the hands of
a demented world dictator
who'd use it to bring the
world to its knees and
force everyone to pay
homage to him. What
would the people of the
world sacrifice to find
this man and take the
horrible "weapon of mass
destruction" away from
him? And if the worst
were to happen, the virus
gets unleashed and the
world is suddenly infected,
what effort would be made
to find the antidote?
Did you know that such
a virus has been unleashed
and we're all infected with
it? It's called death and it
attaches itself to us at birth.
Along with death comes
a particular way or habit
of thinking and living.
People run themselves to
the grave trying to find
ways and means to ignore
it, mask it, or delay it as
long as possible. This


culture of death is with
us, individually and
corporately.
There are some
darkened souls who
believe that death holds a
certain power, it's a force
exerting itself, and if they
could hold death captive to
serve their will, they could
control the world around
them.
What drives this
fascination with death?
What does the Church have
to say to a world cowering
in fear of death? What is
the Western Church to do
in a world where death
seems to reign supreme?
There are some who've
adopted a darkened way of
viewing the world. They
suggest a simple solution
to the problem; renounce
this world and all human
sensations that come from
contact with material
things.
Some Christians have
come to the conclusion
that because death is 'in'

The Church's
thoughts on death need
to be confronted with the
inexpressible truth of the
doctrine of the Incarnation
of the Son of God, Jesus
Christ. It's in creation that
the liturgy of fellowship
between God and man is
revealed most perfectly in
Jesus Christ. To believe
that God isn't interested in
fellowship with us, at least
here and now in creation,
is to lose all hope. But, the
Gospel reminds us that we
don't have to persuade God
to desire fellowship with
us, that it's His passion for
fellowship with us that sets
the agenda for salvation.

Santa Fe Lady Raider soccer takes District 5-3A title


Special to
Alachua County Today
What ended in
regulation play and two
10-minute overtime
periods as a 2-2 tie, became
an unbelievable, well
fought victory for the Lady
Raiders after two rounds of
penalty kicks were over.
Santa Fe lost to
Suwannee last year in the
District Final, but brought
the trophy back home. It
was the most exciting and
physical game yet between
the two rivals. The game
was played in Live Oak at
the Paul Langford Stadium,
home of the Suwannee
Bulldogs.
Jessie TenBroeck
scored first for Suwannee
in the 31st minute and
the score was 1-0 at the
half. In the 48th minute,
Senior Lindsey Rivas sent
a rocket shot on a free kick
to score. Again, in the 49th


minute Rivas sent a low
ball, fed to her by Junior
Jayme Lamb into the left
corer, which Bulldog
Goalkeeper Autumn
Summerfield could not
save. That gave the
Raiders a 2-1 lead. In the

Medicare enrollment and general information


SBy RUQAYYAH NICHOLAS
Office of Social Security
Special to
Alachua County Today
Need Medicare Part B?
If you're eligible, now is the
time to sign up. The general
enrollment period for
Medicare Part B runs from
Jan. 1 through March 31.
Before you make a decision
about general enrollment,
let us fill you in on some
general information.
Medicare is a medical
insurance program for
retired and disabled people.
Some people are covered
only by one type of
Medicare; others opt to pay
extra for more coverage.
SUnderstanding Medicare
can save you money; here
are the facts.
There are four parts
to Medicare: Parts A, B,
C and D. Part A.helps
pay for inpatient hospital
care, skilled nursing care,
hospice care, and other
services. Part B helps
pay for doctors' fees,
outpatient hospital visits,
and other medical services


and supplies not covered
by Part A. Part C allows
you to choose to receive
all of your health care
services through a provider
organization. These
plans, known as Medicare
Advantage Plans, may
help lower your costs of
receiving medical services,
or you may get extra
benefits for an additional
monthly fee. You must have
both Parts A and B to enroll
in Part C. And, Part D is
the Medicare Prescription
Drug Program.
Most people first
become eligible for
Medicare at age 65,
and there is a monthly
premium for Medicare Part
B. In 2011, the standard
premium is $115.40. Some
high-income individuals
pay more than the standard
premium. Your Part B
premium also can be higher
if you do not enroll during
your initial enrollment
period, or when you first
become eligible.
There are exceptions to
this rule. For example, you

can delay your Medicare
Part B enrollment without
having to pay higher
premiums if you are
covered under a group
health plan based on your
own current employment
or the current employment
of any family member. If
this situation applies to
you, you can sign up for
Medicare Part B without
paying higher premiums:
* Any month you are
under a group health
plan based on your own
current employment or
the current employment
of any family member;
or
* Within eight months
after your employment
or group health
plan coverage ends,
whichever comes first.
* If you are disabled
and working (or you
have coverage from
a working family
member), the same
rules apply.
Remember: Most
people are automatically
enrolled in Medicare Part
B when they become
eligible. If you don't enroll
in Medicare-Part B when
you first become eligible to
apply and you don't fit into
one of the above categories,
you'll have to wait until the
general enrollment period,


which is January 1 through
March 31 of each year. At
that time, you may have to
pay a higher Medicare Part
B premium.

about Medicare Parts
A, B, C, and D, visit the
Centers for Medicare
& Medicaid Services
(CMS) website at www.
