Tennessee hospital won’t charge tornado victims medical fees

first_imgiStock(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — A Tennessee hospital won’t charge any medical fees for the dozens of patients who were affected by last week’s deadly tornadoes.A spokeswoman for Cookeville Regional Medical Center told ABC News 82 people were treated for injuries after Tuesday’s storms that ripped through Nashville and other central Tennessee counties. The hospital will bill each patient’s insurance company and accept the insurance’s payment as payment in full, according to Melahn Finley, a spokeswoman for Cookeville Regional Medical Center.“We will not bill patients for the remaining portion after insurance,” she said in a statement. “If they don’t have insurance, they will not be charged.”At least 24 people have been killed by the tornadoes that struck Nashville and the surrounding areas in the early morning hours on Tuesday. Eighteen of those reported fatalities took place in Putnam County, where the National Weather Service said an EF4 tornado, with top winds of 175 mph, struck.Nashville Mayor John Cooper said Thursday officials were still surveying the damage and there were at least 385 residential properties and 184 commercial buildings that sustained “major damage or were completely destroyed.”As of Saturday evening, 9,700 households remain without power in Tennessee, the majority of which are located in Davidson County, according to the Tennessee governor’s office.

Fuel fix

first_imgAlso, the 2002 farm bill, which was passed early last summer, will provide some relief for farmers, he said.“This is a very generous farm bill,” he said. “Even if we have a depressed farm economy this bill will put money into the farm economy to pay bills.”According to the energy department, Georgia and the Gulf Coast states have the cheapest gasoline, averaging $1.579 a gallon as of early March. The West Coast has the most expensive unleaded gasoline, averaging $1.932 a gallon as of the same time. By Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaFuel is an important part of farming, but it’s normally not considered a major cost to farmers. But, if the United States invades Iraq, that could change, says a University of Georgia agricultural economist.Georgia farmers will soon be entering their fields to plant this season’s crops like peanuts, cotton, corn and tobacco. And they’ll be using a lot of fuel to keep their tractors and trucks and such on pace to get this crop in the ground and grown.High priceHistorically, war in the Middle East sends gas prices soaring in the United States and around the world. It also seems that all fingers now point to a U.S.- led invasion of Iraq – closer to sooner than later. Troops are in place and ready to go. Some reports say it could happen in a matter of weeks or even days. This situation has happened before. And when it did, fuel prices spiked, said Bill Givan, an Extension economist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.During the initial phase of the 1991 Gulf War, crude oil jumped above $40 a barrel, he said. Crude oil is used to produce gasoline and other fuels.VolatileKey price indicators for crude oil are volatile right now. The Organization of the Petroleum Producing Countries (OPEC) crude oil prices have danced around $32 a barrel, higher than its target prices of $22-$28 per barrel, for several months. West Texas Intermediate oil, U.S. crude oil, is around $36 a barrel, a level not seen since Oct. 1990, according to the Energy Department’s Energy Information Administration. Oil prices are expected to go even higher this go around.As of the second week in March, national unleaded gasoline prices averaged $1.686 a gallon. It now costs 54 cents per gallon more than this time last year to fill up on a tank of unleaded gas.Diesel fuel prices are already at record highs. It costs about 58 cent per gallon more than this time last year to fill up on a tank of diesel, according to a recent survey of service stations by the Energy Information Administration. The department predicts that U.S. fuel prices will soon reach an all-time high.Razor’s edge“Normally, fuel costs are not a major input farmers have to face,” Givan said. But he added the margin of profit now sits on a razor’s edge for many farming operations. Any increase in any cost, like gasoline, would cut into an already small margin of profit. The costs of some farm fertilizers and chemicals go up as crude oil prices increase, too, further cutting into profits.According to a study by the American Farm Bureau Federation, farmers pay an extra $1 billion in manufactured inputs, such as fertilizer, electricity and pesticides, for every $3 increase in the prices of a barrel of crude oil.But farmers, now, have had several years of depressed commodity prices and tough times. As a result, most farmers are running their businesses as efficiently as they can. If they’re not, Givan said, they’re probably not running at all.last_img read more

NTF to honour Prof. Ikulayo with post-humus award

first_imgThe Nigeria Tennis Federation has revealed plans to honour its late board member, Professor (Mrs) Philomena Ikulayo with a post humus award.NTF 1st vice president, Yemi Owoseni disclosed this at the burial ceremony of the deceased which took place on Friday at Ijurin-Ekiti, her husband’s hometown.According to him, the significant contribution of the deceased to the development of Nigerian tennis cannot be downplayed hence the need to honour her. “Maybe we should have done this before she died but it is worthy to note that her role in tennis development in Nigeria is enormous.Owoseni, who represented the NTF at the burial of the deceased, disclosed that the award will be given to her at the Central Bank of Nigeria Open Tennis Championship which will take place in Lagos in May.On his part, NTF President added that Prof. Ikulayo has always been one of the faces of the federation in major events in the country and it is befitting that she is honoured at the next CBN Open which is the biggest domestic tournament in Nigeria.“She demonstrated her commitment for tennis throughout her year as a board member of the NTF. We owe it a duty to honour her with an award which I must point is well deserved. We will live with the memories of her love for tennis,” Ndanusa said.The late Ikulayo, who died on March 24, 2016 at 68, was a professor in Education/ Human Kinetic & Health Education in the University of Lagos.A barrister at Law, she is credited to have co-authored 173 publications and she had at several times deliver papers at events organized by the Sports Ministry in Nigeria. She was survived by her husband and four children.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Men’s basketball: Hayes, Koenig named to preseason watch lists for positional awards

first_imgThe Wisconsin men’s basketball team may have lost two of the country’s best players in Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker last year to the NBA, but that doesn’t mean the Badgers have run out of stars.Once again, UW will have a pair of players in the national spotlight to start the 2015-16 season, as both junior forward Nigel Hayes and junior guard Bronson Koenig were added to the watch lists of their respective positional awards.Men’s Basketball: Badgers to be featured in ESPN, CBS TV lineupsThe men’s basketball season tickets sold out in four minutes Thursday — and those ticket-holding Badgers fans might find themselves Read…Hayes has been named to the watch list for the Julius Irving Award, which recognizes the top small forward in the country, while Koenig will be up for the Bob Cousy Award for the best point guard in the country. Both awards contain 20 finalists each in their preseason watch lists.For Hayes, the preseason awards continue to accumulate, as he has already been named a preseason All-American by Sporting News. The forward will look to build on a strong sophomore campaign where he averaged 12.4 points and 6.2 rebounds while starting all 40 games for Wisconsin, and he now enters a junior season where he will likely be at the head of UW’s offense.Men’s basketball: Nigel Hayes named to Sporting News’ preseason All-American teamNigel Hayes will have lofty expectations to fulfill this season. Hayes, a men’s basketball junior forward, earned preseason All-American honors Monday Read…Koenig stepped onto the national scene last season after he took over as the team’s starting point guard when then-starter Traevon Jackson went down with a leg injury. As a result, Koenig started the final 24 games for the Badgers and finished with averages of 11.5 points and 2.7 assists per game. The then-sophomore also made a habit of hitting clutch shots late in games for UW.Hayes joins Dekker — who was a finalist for the award last year — as the only Wisconsin players to be named to the Irving watch list, while Koenig joins the ranks of four former UW point guards — Devin Harris, Jordan Taylor, Trevon Hughes and Kammron Taylor — to make the preseason watch list for the Cousy award.last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington vs. Mulvane casino location fight of the mid-2000s had a rather Hatfield vs. McCoy quality to it. And today it is becoming quite clear why the casino location was so important to civic leaders in both communities.With the Kansas Star Casino located at Exit 33 within the Mulvane city limits, the municipality received an extra $3 million in 2013 to its coffers. As a result, Mulvane property tax owners saw a 10 percent reduction in their property taxes and five percent on their electrical bills, said Kent Hixson, Mulvane City Manager.Also, the increased budget has allowed Mulvane to provide a plethora of services that was unattainable in the past.Mulvane saw its assessed valuation increase from $32.1 million in 2012 to $91.9 million in 2014.At the same time, the city of Wellington saw its assessed valuation dip from 43.4 million in 2012 to 41.4 million in 2014. And yet, Wellington still has more expenses. Its projected expenditures in 2014 will be $35.8 million while Mulvane is expected to have $21.6 million in expenses. In 2012, Mulvane’s budget was at $12.07 million.Mulvane city taxpayers are levied 41.80 mills to Wellington’s 51.49 mills. For a $100,000 appraised home, Mulvane homeowners pay $481 to Wellington’s $592. Not so in 2012 when Mulvane residents had a city tax rate higher than Wellington’s.“The real prize of having the casino is the property tax extension,” Hixson said. “We received $1.8 million from gaming revenue. We also received $1.2 million in property tax valuation increase.”The Wellington vs. Mulvane fight less than a decade ago was whether a Kansas casino would be located at Exit 19 within the Wellington city limits or at Exit 33, which was near Mulvane. Three lottery votes later, the Kansas Lottery Commission would award  it to Peninsula Gaming of Debuque, Iowa, to manage the facility at Exit 33. The city of Mulvane then did a snake annexation to incorporate the proposed facility which held up in Kansas Supreme Court.The Kansas State Legislature then enacted into law that the city of Mulvane, Sumner County and Sedgwick County governments would receive one percent of every dollar made at the casino. The city of Wellington was to receive no gaming revenue.While the dollars being doled out are the same for the three taxing entities, its impact is quite different. The Sedgwick County’s operating budget of 2013 is $390 million, so a $1.8 million increase may be nice, it hardly makes a huge impact on the county.In Sumner County, the impact is much more significant with a $23.5 million budget. In Mulvane, the impact of a $12.5 million budget in 2012 is even more significant.“Wow, I could have done all kinds of things with that money,” said Wellington City Manager Gus Collins, who directed his city council to raise property tax revenue two mills to pay for city expenses for 2014.Here are things the city of Mulvane will be doing because of the casino revenue:•Reduce city property taxes 10 percent- $310,000;•Reduce electrical rates 5 percent – $275,000;•Increase the library budget 63 percent -$90,000;•Add two police officers -$90,000;•Employee Health Insurance Premium increase- $210,000;•Offer a secondary source of water treatment plant -yearly bond debt payment- $600,000;•Alcohol and Drug Prevention grants-$50,000.•Water tower yearly debt payments- $130,000;•Electric system upgrades -$250,000;•Street system improvements -$100,000;•Sanitary sewer system improvements -$100,000;•Water system improvements – $50,000;•Park system improvements -$50,000;•City hall improvements -$150,000;•Fire and ambulance equipment replacement- $100,000;•EMS substation staffing and operating costs – $345,000;•Water treatment, plant staffing and operating expenses – $100,000.The total expenses equal the $3 million Mulvane is receiving in gaming revenue.•••••Casino law enforcementSeveral Sumner Newscow readers have expressed to us concerns about the amount of law enforcement being provided by Mulvane.The Sumner County Sheriff’s office recently expanded its budget to $689,338 for 2014, in part to beef up county-wide security.Hixson said Mulvane has beefed up its police officers with two extra officers costing the city an extra $90,000. The officers are not full-time but regularly patrol the area. The estimated drive is four miles from the west city limits to the casino.Mulvane did add a Police/EMS service substation. That cost the city $345,000 and will include two full-time employees in the area.Hixson said the reason the city went with a police/EMS service station is because of safety reasons.“If something was to happen at the casino, we would be able to respond quickly,” Hixson said. “Otherwise, we might get caught by a train (which passes across the E. 119th Street that connects Mulvane to the casino. That could add up 27 minutes getting there and time is crucial during a medical emergency.”Also, Mulvane EMS has a working relationship with Sumner and Sedgwick County for emergency protection.As far as building a Mulvane police sub-station, Hixson said he didn’t think it was necessary. The Kansas Star provides its own security and the city of Mulvane also works closely with the Sumner County Sheriff’s office.He said that crime is up in Mulvane because of the casino. But also has revenue because of casino crime which has helped the city financially.last_img

Powered by Firework The last generation of Indian cricket had the exceptional Rahul Dravid in the lineup. Nicknamed ‘the Wall’, the iconic cricketer is hailed as one of the greatest batsmen ever to grace the 22 yards, and is also the fourth highest run scorer in Test cricket. But does this enormous talent pass onto the next generation? Say hello to Samit Dravid, the 14 year old son of Rahul who is following his father’s footsteps, piling up gigantic knocks on the pitch!Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/TOISamit is a regular for the cricket team of Mallya Aditi International School based in Bengaluru, and has been a stunner in inter school tournaments in the state of Karnataka. In the past three months, the teenager has been on peak form, and his recent heroic showcase against BGS National Public School in the final of the BTR Shield under-14 Group I, Division II tournament is grabbing everyone’s attention.Samit scored an eye catching 211 runs from 144 balls, including asn astounding number of 24 boundaries and a single six. The youngster’s gigantic score ensured a huge 132 run victory for Mallya Aditi IS in the final, and to clinch the trophy at the RSI cricket ground.Advertisement Samit was the highest scorer of the tournament, with 681 runs from five games, with three centuries and one half century.However, this is not the first time Samit has landed a double century. In fact, this is his third 200 in the Karnataka state inter school championships in the past three months. He grabbed eyeballs in the an U14 Karnataka state inter-zonal cricket match back in December 2019. Captaining for Vice-President’s XI, Samit landed a stunning 250-ball-201 against Dharwad Zone.Advertisement The teenager scored another double century for his school in this month. In an U14 BTR Shield match against Sri Kumaran Public School, the Mallya Aditi IS star put up another double century, scoring 204 runs in the match a couple of weeks back.With continuous performances like these, its no doubt that Samit is already under the radar of the senior team selectors. The Men in Blue fans, who cherished Rahul Dravid and his memorable innings in his prime, will be eager to see his son join up the international squad and compliment his father’s legacy.Also read-Meet Shashini Puvi, the 6 year old Indian Chess prodigy whipping up a storm!10 year old Indian kid Dani PK scores ridiculous goal straight from the corner kick!

congratulate our delegates on the good work they have done so far and are still doing. it doesnt necessarily trump the right of someones conscience to abstain from something they find morally reprehensible" Same-sex marriage opponents also argue that there is a form of reverse discrimination going onthat their views against same-sex marriage should be tolerated and protected just like the views of people who support it "Unfortunately same-sex marriage advocates have increasingly treated people who believe in traditional marriage as the legal equivalent of bigots and even racists" Frank Schubert political director for the National Organization for Marriage tells TIME in an email "They brook no disagreement with their ideology and they tolerate no dissent Therefore legislation like this in Kansas becomes necessary to assure that people are not forced to personally be part of something they cannot in good conscience support There are plenty of people willing to serve a gay marriage ceremony without having to force everyone to do so" But the implications of bill in Kansas its critics emphasize go far beyond wedding ceremonies The measure explicitly states that no individual has to treat any marriageof any orientationas valid if it "would be contrary to the sincerely held religious beliefs" and can refuse to provide services like adoption counseling or employment benefits related to the celebration of any such marriage Those individuals would be protected from civil lawsuits that might arise as a result of that denial "The language of the bill really allows discrimination in virtually every aspect of somebodys life" says Rho She says the language could potentially protect an employer who for instance chose not to promote a woman because she was not as submissive in her heterosexual marriage as his religion dictated just as much as a vendor who refused to sell wedding rings to a lesbian couple "Theyre really opening the door for all kinds of litigation" she says Sarah Warbelow state legislative director for the Human Rights Campaign a gay rights advocacy group says theyre monitoring more than a half-dozen bills related to refusal of services for same-sex couples across the country all introduced in 2014 Whether those bills in states like South Dakota and Tennessee can eventually stand as laws may be affected by upcoming Supreme Court cases she says The high court is still deciding whether it will hear an appeal from a New Mexico-based photographer who refused to take photos for a lesbian couple’s commitment ceremony And the court has agreed to hear a case involving Hobby Lobby While that case primarily concerns whether employers have to provide insurance coverage for birth control if it violates their religious beliefs Warbelow says that a ruling allowing Hobby Lobby to deny such coverage "certainly opens up the question of what other types of laws corporations can ignore simply because they have religious or moral objections" Warbelow says the freedom of speech and religion argument doesnt hold water "That isnt consistent with interpretation of civil rights law going back decades" she says "Once you open your doors to the general public you are expected to serve the general public provided that an individual can pay for the service" For now Miller says she expects Phillips will continue to refuse to make any wedding cakes for same-sex couples who may come asking at his bakery even though he faced up to a year of jail time the last time he did so “Its not about tolerance” Miller says “If it really was

warplanes have bombed targets inside Syria every day While that may seem an awful lot like war to those being pounded it hardly feels that way to most Americans When US troops are in combat on the ground they’re generally accompanied by reporters who in recent conflicts have been able to fill TV screens and the Internet with up-close scenes of the action But when the US elects to conduct an air war Americans generally witness the action from airborne targeting cameras or social-media posts from the ground Both of those of course have their own problems: footage released by the Pentagon has been editedscrubbed if you preferand represents only a tiny fraction of what was recorded The provenance and indeed the authenticity of cell phone videos allegedly capturing what is happening on the ground gives a similarly incomplete and often suspect picture of what’s happening The US military’s assault against targets belonging to two groups of Islamic militants inside Syria has become almost background noise for most Americans Granted the airmen involved are at risk but the nation generally seems to focus on warand holds its breathonly when US ground troops are involved in combat For Americans that’s a double-edged sword For sure it cuts down on the risk to US military personnel But it also makes accomplishing President Obama’s declared missionthe destruction of the Islamic State
