KATTERJOHN: Climbing mountains for Parkinson'sRestricted Content

July 20, 2009
Chris Katterjohn
What is it about mountains? People climb them because they’re there. People climb them because the experience is humbling and rewarding. People climb them because they represent a physical and mental challenge that, once met, is deeply satisfying.

KATTERJOHN: Tut-tut, looks like parochialismRestricted Content

When prominent Egyptologist Zahi Hawass shared stories at a recent event about his personal meeting with President Obama, my pride was momentarily dashed by the behavior of the people sitting at the next table. When Hawass noted how impressed he was with our new president, these people became incredulous. They started snickering like schoolchildren.

Chris Katterjohn
In southwest Florida, the take on Tony Dungy's departure was a little different than it was in Indianapolis. In Tampa, where Dungy's family lives, the story was played like the return of a native son.

  1. The deductible is entirely paid by the POWER account. No one ever has to contribute more than $25/month into the POWER account and it is often less. The only cost not paid out of the POWER account is the ER copay ($8-25) for non-emergent use of the ER. And under HIP 2.0, if a member calls the toll-free, 24 hour nurse line, and the nurse tells them to go to the ER, the copay is waived. It's also waived if the member is admitted to the hospital. Honestly, although it is certainly not "free" - I think Indiana has created a decent plan for the currently uninsured. Also consider that if a member obtains preventive care, she can lower her monthly contribution for the next year. Non-profits may pay up to 75% of the contribution on behalf of the member, and the member's employer may pay up to 50% of the contribution.

  2. I wonder if the governor could multi-task and talk to CMS about helping Indiana get our state based exchange going so Hoosiers don't lose subsidy if the court decision holds. One option I've seen is for states to contract with healthcare.gov. Or maybe Indiana isn't really interested in healthcare insurance coverage for Hoosiers.

  3. So, how much did either of YOU contribute? HGH Thank you Mr. Ozdemir for your investments in this city and your contribution to the arts.

  4. So heres brilliant planning for you...build a $30 M sports complex with tax dollars, yet send all the hotel tax revenue to Carmel and Fishers. Westfield will unlikely never see a payback but the hotel "centers" of Carmel and Fishers will get rich. Lousy strategy Andy Cook!

  5. AlanB, this is how it works...A corporate welfare queen makes a tiny contribution to the arts and gets tons of positive media from outlets like the IBJ. In turn, they are more easily to get their 10s of millions of dollars of corporate welfare (ironically from the same people who are against welfare for humans).
