A car accident victim was being transported to the hospital on the craft when it went down in Coffee County.
TRIA, a law signed into law in 2002, establishes a risk-sharing partnership between the federal government and the insurance industry and without that federal support, most insurers will be unwilling to offer coverage, which translates into no major sporting events!
This is no joke! It almost happened to soccer fans! Continue reading

Golly-gee-bob! Look at how well Obamacare is working! For the insurance company’s bottom line that is.. And for us insured little people? Not so good..

capitalism is alive and well in the health care marketplace. In the first quarter after the insurance provisions of the Affordable Care Act have gone “live,” the insurers are now releasing their earnings reports. How is it looking so far? Great for the insurers, not so great for the insured..

How many celebrities will we need to lose to prescription drug abuse before doctors stop prescribing them? Is the high profile deaths of many of our beloved music and screen stars not enough to make you stop? Are you fearless, hiding behind a medical degree?
Celebrities wake up! The doctors want you to get on these drugs and the reason is simple, once you’re hooked, they have you right were they want you. The masterful dispensing of these legal killers is no different from the drug pusher on the street, except for the fact, doctors have a licenses to kill. Once you’re dependent on the drugs you will need your prescription every 30 days (or less) which means your doctor will be seeing a lot more of you. Maybe you won’t have to pay, maybe your insurance company is footing the bill, but you will pay and possibly with your life.
Maybe you’re not famous, you may be a star father, mother, sister or brother. The doctors don’t care who you are or what you have to lose, they simply want to keep the money and you coming in.
Now there are some good eggs, some doctors who do not prescribe pain medication willy-nilly, and to those fine men and women of the medical profession I solute you, however, to the docs who continue to write those prescriptions to folks who either do not require them or are at high risk for abuse, I say this, your days of manipulating the system will soon come to an end, and in the end your trail of destruction, all be it great, will always lead back to you and your conscience.
Wow! The bad rep actress Lindsay Lohan is reported to be cast in Robert Rodriguez “Grindhouse” spin-off “Machete.” After her disastrous habits put her in the dumps, and she became ‘insurance liability’ to be in movies, looks like the stars have aligned once again for Lindsay’s acting career…
Lindsay tweeted this on her Twitter page: “Something was made official today!!!!!!!!!” with a link to “Machete’s” IMDB.com page.
“I can’t say too much about it. Except that we start shooting in a couple weeks. These things come together very quickly,” Rodriguez said. “We’re casting right now, and the script just came out great… There are a lot of people we’re sending it to, big names — but nobody that we’ve signed yet.”
He adds, “Lindsay is cool. There’s actually a cool part in the movie for her — if she takes it.”
…and she took it! Good move LL.
90210 star Shenae Grimes says people who wonder about rumors swirling around her – that she has an eating disorder, behaves badly on set and is a party girl – should ask her before believing what they read.
“Nobody has asked me about it. I really can’t help what someone thinks of me because they are reading a paper and choosing to believe it,” Grimes, who denies the rumors, tells PEOPLE in its new issue.
The 19-year-old Toronto native says the experience of moving to Los Angeles earlier this year parallels that of her character, high school student Annie Wilson. “It was a huge culture shock,” says Grimes, who became tabloid fodder the minute she was cast in the CW show, a remake of the uber-successful 1990s FOX drama.
Soon after her newfound notoriety kicked in, Grimes – and her female 90210 costars – were slammed for being too thin and accused of having eating disorders. “It’s so frustrating,” the 5-foot-3-inch Grimes says, noting that she does not have an eating disorder, but did have a close friend struggle with one for years.
“Meet me in person, and you can’t say anything. No bones sticking out,” Grimes, who has been thin all her life, tells PEOPLE. “Just because people are calling you skinny doesn’t mean I’m like, ‘Yay!’ No! You’re telling me I don’t look right. This is me, this is my body – I have accepted it.”
As for being a diva at work and a party girl at night, Grimes shrugs it off. “The hours I work I definitely can’t,” says the self-described homebody who likes to watch DVDs and hang out with friends.
“These are stories that have been written about everybody,” says the star. “Of course we’re the new girls on a hit show so we’re plopped into these little boxes. And people buy it. It makes me totally second guess anything I’ve ever read about anybody.”
