December 20, 2016 Governor Wolf Discusses Benefits of Medicaid Expansion and ACA in Response to Request from Majority Leader McCarthy SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Healthcare, Medicaid Expansion, National Issues, Press Release, Public Health Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Wolf responded to Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s request for input regarding the health care system in Pennsylvania. Governor Wolf outlined the importance of ensuring that Pennsylvanians continue to have access to affordable, quality health insurance and discussed how Medicaid expansion and the Affordable Care Act have benefitted the people of Pennsylvania. Governor Wolf also sent letters to the Pennsylvania delegation highlighting the specific benefit these programs have had in congressional districts.“In Pennsylvania, an additional 670,000 Pennsylvanians received health insurance through Medicaid expansion,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “Medicaid expansion has also served as a critical resource for Pennsylvanians who are suffering from a substance use disorder as our commonwealth battles an unprecedented prescription drug and heroin public health crisis. Through Medicaid expansion, almost 63,000 newly eligible Medicaid enrollees were able to access drug and alcohol treatment that is critical to helping patients’ recovery.”“Americans need real, meaningful health care coverage. They need options that are affordable, easy to understand, responsive to their needs, and available immediately – with no lapse in coverage. They need leadership and compassion and solutions – and together, we can provide them with all of those things. I look forward to future conversations. Thank you again for the opportunity to contribute to this incredibly important dialogue.”Governor Wolf highlighted the following statistics:After expanding Medicaid in February 2015, more than 670,000 Pennsylvanians have enrolled in HealthChoices, Pennsylvania’s mandatory managed care Medicaid program.U.S. Census data shows that the commonwealth’s uninsured rate has dropped from 10.2 percent in 2010 to 6.4 percent in 2015.In the first year of Pennsylvania’s Medicaid expansion, almost 63,000 newly eligible Medicaid enrollees accessed drug and alcohol treatment. This coverage is essential in battling the opioid and heroin public health crisis that took over 3,500 lives in Pennsylvania in 2015.In 2016, more than 439,000 Pennsylvanians had selected health coverage through the Marketplace. Seventy six percent of those Pennsylvanians received subsidies to make those plans more affordable and 60 percent of those enrollees could obtain coverage for $100 or less after tax credits.To read the full letter, click here.To view one of the letters Governor Wolf sent to the Pennsylvania delegation, click here.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf

Submitted by Hartley JewelersWhen Joe Lozito began his quest for the perfect engagement ring for his fiancée, Jen O’Neal, he had an inkling of where to begin, but no idea about the long journey the ring would take, nor about the journey the stones had already taken.Jen sums up the ring’s journey: “The stone came from my parents, the diamonds from his parents, and it was made by a jeweler in Washington.”The stories of the stones begin in New York and Thailand. Let’s start with the New York stones. Joe grew up in New York, the son of opera singers. Joe’s mother, Adele, died when he was 15, and her wedding ring was safely set aside. Because the ring had been stored away for many years, Joe had forgotten what it looked like. At Joe’s request, his father, Art, showed him the ring, which had a marquise stone and four small diamonds. With his father’s blessing, Joe took the four small diamonds, and his brother received the larger stone.When Joe asked Jen’s dad for his blessing to marry his daughter, Jen’s mom offered the center stone of her ring, a star sapphire. Jen, who grew up in Olympia, fondly remembers her mom wearing the ring, and the sapphire is even more meaningful since it is Jen’s birthstone.Joe wanted the heirloom stones – four small diamonds and a star sapphire – to be made into a contemporary engagement ring. Jen’s family had long shopped at Hartley Jewelers in Olympia, so Joe talked to Rick Hartley about designing Jen’s ring.The design process started with making two-dimensional sketches. When the ring design drawings satisfied Joe, the goldsmith, DeAnn Hamilton, created a wax mold. Joe approved each step of the process through photographs because he was in New York. When the design was finalized, a casting mold was made. After several more steps in the process, finally, the ring was completed.“It’s an extensive process,” explains DeAnn. “Once the custom ring is created, we destroy the mold, so it’s truly one-of-a-kind.”The star sapphire had come from Thailand when Jen’s father served in the military and went to Vietnam during the war, about 1968–69. “It was an awful place that he didn’t want to be,” says Jen. “My mother didn’t want him to go.” One day he went to Thailand with a Thai friend who took him to a jewelry store. There Jen’s dad bought the star sapphire stone for his wife in Olympia. “He brought something beautiful back from such an ugly time in their lives,” Jen says.During the first four months of Joe and Jen’s engagement, Jen wore a green plastic engagement ring, a nod to the couple’s interest in science fiction. She was patient because she knew a real ring was in production.About designing a contemporary ring, Rick Hartley says, “We get to blend a heritage from two different families into an heirloom ring that is a daily part of their lives. They are wearing part of their histories. We help them create something that’s unique and different.”When Joe finally had the ring in his hands in New York, he took Jen to a waterfront town with crab houses and seafood shacks – a town that reminds her of Olympia – to give her the ring.Joe and Jen were married on Oct. 22 on Long Island. They incorporated other family heirlooms and vintage items, including a cake knife and old books, into their wedding décor.They live in New Jersey and work in New York City.By Paula Rudberg Lowe.

By Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily Sports EditorIf the Nelson Leafs didn’t have bad luck the team would have no luck at all.Already icing one of the youngest rosters in the entire Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, the Leafs played most of last weekend without the services of three veteran players — forwards Gavin Currie and Cody Abbey and defenceman Tyler Parfeniuk.The result had the Leafs losing two of three, including a 6-2 pasting at the hands of the lowly Grand Forks Border Bruins.On the positive side, the 2010 KIJHL finalists did manage to get its first win of the season, a 3-2 win against an ever-improving Penticton Lakers squad, to right the ship, a little.“We haven’t been healthy since the beginning of the season,” Leaf coach and GM, Chris Shaw told The Nelson Daily Tuesday.“We have such a young club that the impact of losing three veterans is huge and changes the dynamics of the team.”Currie did manage to get in a few shifts during the loss to Beaver Valley and Sunday’s win over the Lakers, but did not look at full strength fighting a nagging upper body injury.Abbey spent Sunday’s encounter sitting in the stands. The Leafs definitely missed the 6’2”, 200-pound winger huge body in front of the net.As for Parfeniuk, the rugged Kelowna defenceman has played in just one game this season thanks to a shoulder injury.Shaw expects Abbey and Currie back in the lineup in the return match Saturday against the Bruins in Grand Forks.However, Parfeniuk will remain on the disabled list. “The game last week was a weird one,” Shaw explained when asked about the loss to the Bruins. “Grand Forks scored six power play goals, which is almost unheard of in junior hockey.”“Still there are no excuses the way we played in Grand Forks,” he added.Shaw did add a fresh face to the Leaf lineup Sunday in the form of Marcus Dhal, a speedy, but small, 17-year-old forward from the Calgary Royals of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.At 5’8”, 165-pounds, Dahl adds some speed to the Leafs front line.“He’s a skilled forward who played last season for the Okanagan Hockey Association Major Midget team,” Shaw said.The road doesn’t get any easier for the Leafs. After playing Grand Forks Friday, Nelson plays host to the always-tough Fernie Ghostriders Saturday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.STAT LINE: Nelson, 1-4, is not only last in the Murdoch Division, but the Green and White hold down the bottom spot in the league in goals scored this season at 1.80 per game. Fernie Ghostriders are tops with 4.70 goals per game. Nelson has also allowed 4.40 goals per game, second worst in the KIJHL behind Princeton Posse. . . . Connor McLaughlin leads the team in scoring with four points, including three goals. In contrast, Thierry Martine of Osoyoos Coyotes and Duncan Schulz of Kamloops Storm lead the league, each with nine points. Martine has six goals in four [email protected]
Kayden Peck, Brandon Tutte and Ben Berard replied for South Island.Saturday, South Island scored three consecutive goals in a wild second period to grab the first win of the series.After Korbyn Chabot of Cranbrook gave Kootenay a 2-1 lead, Cam Coutre, Ben Grist and Berard scored in a span of eight minutes to give the Royals a 4-2 lead after 40 minutes.Shawn Campbell of Castlegar opened the scoring for Kootenay while Peck had the other goal for South Island.Solomon Burk of Castlegar and Jason Mailhoit were in goal for Kootenay, which improves to 5-24-5 on the season.The Ice return to action this weekend in Nelson when the club hosts North Island Silvertips in a two game series beginning Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.Sunday, the puck drops at 8 a.m. in the NDCC Arena. Nelson’s Keaton Roch scored with six minutes remaining in the game to lift Kootenay Ice into a 3-3 tie with South Island Royals in BC Major Midget Hockey League action Sunday at the NDCC Arena.The power play goal by Roch allowed the host Ice squad to escape the weekend series with at least a point in the Major Midget standings.South Island double Kootenay 4-2 Saturday.Justin Podgorenko of Nelson, also scoring on the power play, and Tanner Costa of Castlegar also had goals for Kootenay.
Explaining a simple proposal to help people squirrel away gold for their golden years, Hillary Clinton said that a person “should not require a Ph.D. to save for retirement.” But can even Ph.D.s understand liberalism’s arithmetic and logic? Consider the controversy over the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, which is up for renewal. Most Republicans favor extending it. Almost all Democrats, and some Republicans, favor expanding it in a way that transforms it. SCHIP is described as serving “poor children” or children of “the working poor.” Everyone agrees that it is for “low income” people. Under the bill that Democrats hope to pass today over the president’s veto, states could extend eligibility to households earning $61,950. But America’s median household income is $48,201. How can people above the median income be eligible for a program serving lower income people? Politics often operates on the Humpty Dumpty Rule (in “Through the Looking Glass,” he says, “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less”). But the people currently preening about their compassion should have some for the English language. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Clinton’s idea for helping Americans save for retirement is this: Any family that earns less than $60,000 and that puts $1,000 into a new 401(k)-type plan would receive a matching $1,000 tax cut. For those earning between $60,000 and $100,000 the government would match half of the first $1,000. She proposes to pay for this by taxing people who will be stoical about this – dead people – by freezing the estate tax exemption at its 2009 level. A conservative case can be made for something like Clinton’s proposal. It is a case for reducing the supply of government by reducing demand for it, and doing so by giving people ownership of enlarged private assets as a basis for their security. President Bush made this case in his advocacy of personal accounts financed by a portion of individuals’ Social Security taxes and invested in funds based on equities and bonds. When he proposed this, Clinton stridently opposed him, and not just because she thought it would undermine Social Security’s solvency and political support. She also said it was a dangerous gamble that would make retirement insecure by linking retirement savings to the stock market. Today her Web site calls her proposal a way to save for “a secure retirement.” After an undisclosed epiphany, she belatedly recognizes that 401(k) funds invested in equities are a foundation for security. John Edwards, too, has puzzling ideas. For the entertainment of Iowans, he has reinvented himself as a 19th-century Kansan – Mary Elizabeth Lease, the prairie populist who urged farmers to “raise less corn and more Hell.” In August, Edwards urged an Iowa audience to throw off Washington’s yoke: “We need to take the power out of the hands of these insiders that are rigging the system against you.” To measure how much Iowans are suffering from the rigging, Stephen Slivinski of the libertarian Cato Institute was asked to mine the most recent Census Bureau data. He concluded that Iowans paid $15.6 billion in revenues to the federal government and got $19.4 billion back, a gain of $1,286.53 per Iowan. But that is not all. Washington has rigged the system to inundate corn-growing Iowa with subsidies for corn-based ethanol. Slivinski says it is difficult to pin down the Iowa corn farmers’ harvest of dollars because the subsidies come from exemptions from excise taxes and tariffs (54 cents per imported gallon) that stifle competition from cheap ethanol imports. It is, however, reasonable to add $2 billion to Iowa’s gain from Washington’s rigging of the system, so the average Iowan’s gain is at least $1,963.65. Suppose Iowa did not have crucial presidential nominating caucuses. Or suppose it had them but that its crucial crop were, say, broccoli rather than corn. Would the federal government still be, well, rigging the system to create a phony “market” to satisfy a specious “demand” for mandatory and subsidized ethanol? No, but it probably would be mandating broccoli at every meal. George Will’s e-mail address is [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The beautiful thing about multi-disciplinary sporting events is how the non-stop action from start to finish is spread over a long period but still does not leave the audience bored. Sport today is no longer just about going to the venues and catching the action.The way television cameras are able to capture all the thrilling moments, even people without access to venues are able to soak in the atmosphere.People in the sub-continent, and specifically India, are lucky that within a month they have got to see the highs and lows of the Commonwealth Games and now the Asian Games. A big indicator of the success of the Games is how the opening ceremony is executed. In Beijing, an effort was made to keep things under wraps.That was understandable as the western media wanted to portray China negatively all along. The 2008 Beijing opening ceremony not only was high intensity and showcased the Chinese culture and ethos, it was also able to beat the highest Olympic standards set by previous host cities.After that, it was New Delhi’s turn to dazzle at the Commonwealth Games opening and it happened. As much as the media tried to create a negative hype over the Rs 40 crore aerostat, it was a big success. And so were the Games for what it produced in terms of results for India.Now that Guangzhou has used the whole city to capture the essence of what can be done for an opening ceremony, the standards set are so high that whichever city now hosts big Games will be under pressure to try something more innovative. Having seen Beijing, New Delhi and now Guangzhou, I am convinced that when it comes to planning and execution, the Chinese are the masters.advertisementIf the opening ceremony on Friday night captured millions of hearts in Asia and possibly other continents, the efforts which they have put in to create infrastructure is amazing.At a time when New Delhi is undecided on whether India should bid for the 2019 Asian Games, we need to learn from the Chinese. If Beijing showed to the world what worldclass infrastructure was all about, the port city of Guangzhou is almost of the same standard. Guangzhou created a huge sub-city where everything seems well planned. We were told on landing at the Baiyun airport that the Asian Games zone was a city within itself and self-sustained.I wanted to see for myself the big difference between what New Delhi did for the Commonwealth Games and how Guangzhou is handling the challenge. Undoubtedly, though you had countries like Britain and Australia in the CWG, the Asian Games is far bigger.The sheer number of events, the venues and the logistics involved is mind boggling. Yet, the Chinese organise things in such a cool manner, there is minimum fuss even about the tough things they have to handle. Before leaving for Guangzhou, I read on the web about the city being a high crime zone and how people could sedate or even paralyse you by injecting some stuff! Mercifully, the efficient policemen have ensured nothing like that takes place.Those lucky enough to go to the main city say it’s throbbing with life after sunset and people of all colour and creed are able to soak in the atmosphere. However, within the Asian Games sub city, the sports complexes are awesome.The security tents for cops and a few more features which were referred to as ‘overlays’ during the CWG are there for all to see. However, China has not spent crores of yuans for hiring them on rent! If India wants to learn from Guangzhou, there are many lessons.Organising a Games of this stature means leaving nothing to chance. Miles of highways, bridges, metro networks, volunteers, spick and span venues and a Games Village of high standards with no fear of snakes, dogs and monkeys: this is what Guangzhou has to show. No wonder, they call China a real [email protected]
Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Subramaniam Badrinath scored half-centuries in Chennai’s 18-run win over Delhi during an IPL match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk, Chennai, on Thursday. Score | PhotosChasing 177, Delhi could only manage to score 158/6 against a superior Chennai side in this 56th IPL match.Keeping in mind the massive 177-run target Delhi openers Naman Ojha and David Warner got off to a quick start. But, the quick start came to an abrupt halt in the third over when Ojha took the aerial route off Chennai paceman Albie Morkel. The ball took a long loop only to land in the safe hands of Shadab Jakati at mid-off when the team total was 30. Ojha scored 25.Soon new man Colin Ingram too was back in the dugout after a superlative catch by Dwayne Bravo off R Ashwin saw him get out on 7. And Delhi were down to 54/2 on the first ball of the 8th over.Bravo not just showed his prowess in the field but also performed with the ball. He got rid of Delhi opener David Warner. Warner tried to pull Bravo, but Murali Vijay cut short his stroke by taking a neat catch in the deep. Warner departed on 21 and Delhi lost their third wicket on 64 in the 10th over.On the first ball of the 16th over, a turner off R Ashwin uprooted Venugopal Rao’s off stump and he fell for 30 and Delhi were down to 107/4.Bravo struck again in the 18th over and got rid of captain James Hopes, leading the side in the absence of captain Virender Sehwag, cheaply even as Delhi were reduced to 127/5 and were looking down the barrel.advertisementIn the last over Delhi Andrew McDonald fell to Doug Bollinger and Delhi were 150/6 with four balls remaining in their innings.Chennai inningsSkipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Subramaniam Badrinath scored half-centuries as Chennai posted a commanding 176/4 against Delhi.Earlier, Chennai captain M.S. Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat in the 56th IPL match of the season. But Chennai failed to bag an early advantage as Delhi paceman Irfan Pathan got rid of opener Michael Hussey in the sixth ball of the innings trapping him leg-before when Chennai were batting 6.Post that setback, Chennai opener Murali Vijay and left-hand batsman Suresh Raina tried to get the innings back on track, but in the sixth over Delhi paceman Varun Aaron, touted as the fastest bowler in the country, scalped Raina on 14 with Pathan performing the final rites at long on. Chennai lost their second wicket on 41.Later Murali Vijay and S Badrinath got going against the Delhi attack, but their partnership too did not last long as Delhi medium-pacer Ajit Agarkar despatched Vijay in the 11th over as Chennai lost their third wicket on 68. Vijay scored 35 off 33 balls.Then Chennai skipper M.S. Dhoni hit a couple of good shots towards the fence to raise his team’s tempo.Soon Dhoni and S Badrinath got going against Delhi bowlers, thwarting their attack, stealing the runs and putting those odd ones past the boundary. Gradually and steadily the Chennai run rate started to increase.Finally, S Badrinath was run out on 55 in a bid to increase the run rate in the last over off Irfan Pathan. But, the damage had already been done as Badrinath and skipper M.S Dhoni scored 96 runs for the fourth wicket.Post Badrinath’s dismissal, Dhoni hit two over the fence shots even as the last over fetched 17 runs and Chennai ended their innings on 176/4. Dhoni remained unbeaten on 63.
