  • Isms: Original views on life from rural America

    LuAnn Schindler, Publisher|Nov 30, 2023

    An email landed in my inbox and caught my attention. I don’t watch a lot of television, unless the Weather Channel and sporting events count. And, if by some chance I watch a network show, I’m continually disillusioned by the number of advertisements promising health benefits ... until you read the fine print and learn all the unwanted side effects. According to newly-released data from the Federal Communications Commission, based on complaints about commercials, the top five most con...

  • Fighting for long-term fiscal health

    REP. ADRIAN SMITH|Nov 30, 2023

    Two weeks ago, I supported a one-year extension of current Farm Bill programs. While a conventional five-year reauthorization of the Farm Bill is preferable, many of these critical programs lapsed Sept. 30. The current lapse shouldn't affect 2023 crops, but a one-year extension was necessary to prevent reverting back to pre-1930s farm policy as we begin 2024. I'm pleased Congress has acted to ensure American producers will have another year of certainty as they work to put food on our table and...

  • It's a desert out there Nebraska

    J.L. Schmidt, Statehouse Correspondent Nebraska Press Association|Nov 30, 2023

    Just when you thought the drought was bad, deserts have started popping up in Nebraska. Pick a topic: childcare; food; maternal health care. They have been discussed in the interim by lawmakers and deserve to be included among bills under consideration next session.

For example, the state could help encourage more doctors to dedicate their time and specialty to labor and delivery care...

  • Protecting seniors' access to healthcare

    SEN. DEB FISCHER|Nov 30, 2023

    Nearly 1.2 million Americans live in nursing homes today. The vast majority of those Americans are seniors, people who urgently need the specialized care that long-term nursing facilities provide. That's especially true in small towns, where a greater percentage of the population is over 65. But this fall, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services proposed a rule that could close nursing facilities across rural America. The rule proposed in September has the stated goal of improving care in...

    LuAnn Schindler, Publisher|Nov 30, 2023

    Basketball enthusiasts may notice one rule change when regular-season play begins tonight. The one and one is done.

  • Medicare Advantage

    Tom Dean MD|Nov 30, 2023

    TV is flooded these days with commercials encouraging everyone to sign up for Medicare Advantage. What is MA and why are they doing this? First of all, a bit of history. For more than 30 years, Congress has debated whether the private insurance industry could deliver Medicare benefits more efficiently than the federal government. In 2003, these efforts evolved into what is now known as Medicare Part C or, more commonly, Medicare Advantage. MA plans, operated by private insurance companies, cover...
