Hungry for solutions Fate of senior programs still in doubt BY APRIL WILKERSON THE JOURNAL RECORD

OKLAHOMA CITY – State programs for senior citizens won’t face the magnitude of budget cuts once feared, thanks in part to a $5 million infusion for senior nutrition. But Oklahoma’s recent budget woes, coupled with an aging population, should prompt discussion on a new model for funding senior programs, said Lance Robertson, director of the Aging Services

Division for the Department of Human Services. The Legislature earmarked $5 million for senior nutrition, which doesn’t fully replace the amount cut from the program in the fiscal year that is coming to an end, Robertson said, but it certainly provides a boost. This fiscal year, 26 senior nutrition centers had to close their doors and 52 others reduced their services. Carla Brunson, director of the Kiamichi Area Nutrition Project in southeastern Oklahoma, said telling seniors and center employees the news was among the hardest things she’s done. Last October, she had 19 nutrition centers; she had to close four and consoli-

date two. “I had to look them in the eyes and tell them we had to close their center,” Brunson said. “It was awful.” Robertson said it’s too early to tell if the $5 million will restore all the nutrition centers. Staff at the 11 Area Agencies on Aging will submit their plans to the Aging Services Division, then the state will have a better picture of how the $5 million will be used. Some centers reopened with other money, such as tribal dollars and private donations, and they may not choose to come back under the state’s umbrella, he said. In Brunson’s area, several churches rallied to help their nutrition centers stay

afloat, and the communities of McAlester and Red Oak chipped in as well. Robertson said such community support should be the future of senior and nutrition programs. “The funding for the senior meals program, both state and federally, is only intended to kick-start the local program,” he said. “It’s not intended to sustain you forever. Even when the Older Americans Act passed federally in 1965, they said the federal government will fund this program at a level sufficient enough to get things going in the states. That’s a tough thing to accept, but there will never be enough See HUNGRY, Page 22

Home care program receives high praise BY APRIL WILKERSON THE JOURNAL RECORD

OKLAHOMA CITY – Last year, for the first time, more senior citizens received at-home care through the state’s ADvantage program than went into Medicaid nursing homes. ADvantage, the 16-year-old state program that allows nursing home-eligible seniors and adults with disabilities to receive their care at home, continues growing in popularity. And the staff at the Aging Services Division of Oklahoma’s Department of Human Services is happy to provide it. In the end, the cost of caring for people at home is one-third less than if they were in the nursing home. “I often think in life, particularly in your latter years, that it’s the littlest of things that give you comfort and pleasure,” said Lance Robertson, director of the Aging Services Division. “A lady on the ADvantage program who I spoke to recently was so delighted to be able to stay at home because she was able to still have her dog that she’s had for the past 15 years. The nursing home she was looking at understandably had a no-pets policy. That dog is every bit of a family member to her. This program is how people remain dignified in their latter years. We all know about the comforts of home, and having those in that final stage of life is See PRAISE, Page 23

City cautiously optimistic about revenue increase BY BRIAN BRUS

Stan Johnson targets $5B plateau Tulsa net-lease brokerage outlines national expansion

THE JOURNAL RECORD

BY KIRBY LEE DAVIS OKLAHOMA CITY – City sales tax revenues continued to climb in May, 7.67 percent higher than the same month a year ago, City Manager Jim Couch said Tuesday. But as positive as that sounds, he said, it still doesn’t quite match Oklahoma City’s financial position of three years ago. “May’s revenues exceeded expectations for Oklahoma City and many others throughout the state,” Couch said in his report to City Council members. “While one month does make a trend, this is the best Oklahoma City has performed against the prior year so far this fiscal year, displacing last month’s previous top performance. Oklahoma City’s 7.67-percent increase marks the first time in 15 consecutive months for sales tax revenues to have exceeded those of the same month in the prior year.” On an unrelated issue, Moody’s Investor Service has upgraded the municipal government’s debt rating to triple-A level, Couch said, matching Standard & Poor’s highest rating for the city. “The city’s long history of conservative financial policies and strong, stable management continue to contribute to the maintenance of this high rating,” Couch said. “Moody’s believes that city leadership will continue to apply prudent financial planning and implementation to preserve a strong financial position, meeting future capital needs with conservative debt management practices.” Bond ratings are issued before a public body such as a city or state government can issue bonds to finance major capital projects such as streets, bridges, mass transit, sidewalks and park improvements. The high ratings mean lower interest rates, which makes more funds available to spend on projects. The rating also implies confidence in the city’s investment climate, officials said. That conservative outlook was expressed again Tuesday as city officials discussed the tax revenues increase ahead of the annual budgeting process, which much be completed by June 30. “We need to remember that as we go into the budget … we’re $15.5 million below last year and we’re $19.7 million below target,” Couch said. Mayor Mick Cornett said, “We’d love to think the recession is over. We just don’t know yet. We need a couple more of these before I feel really good about announcing to ourselves that the good times have returned to Oklahoma City. “But it sure looks good and there’s every reason to be confident as far as I’m concerned,” Cornett said. Council member Patrick Ryan agreed with his peers’ caution: “I think we ought to keep this whole year as conservative as we can, because I think we’re in for some longterm, secular changes in the financial system.” Oklahoma City municipal government’s revenues for funding public services rely on fluctuating sales taxes instead of steadier property taxes common in other parts of the country.

TULSA – Stan Johnson Co. has launched a national branch expansion targeting $5 billion transaction volume – five times its projected 2010 results. That goal would establish the Tulsabased brokerage as the national leader in triple-net building sales. At $600 million transactional volume in 2009, Stan Johnson Co. ranked third behind CB Richard Ellis and Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services. “We already see ourselves as the No. 1 brand,” said Executive Managing Director Daniel E. Herrold, coordinator of the expansion plan. “We want to try to be No. 1 in both market share and brand.” Stan Johnson defied the national recession to test the waters in November 2008, creating a Houston office under Herrold. That organic expansion has grown from two brokers to six. By January, the Houston office had completed more than 20 deals topping $75 million in volume “We turned a profit in our first 12 months,” said Herrold. “It was a good barometer for what we were able to potentially do in other markets.” In January the Tulsa brokerage outlined five other logistical targets – Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York or Philadelphia. Two months later SJC brought together two established Chicago brokers, Brandon Duff and Brad Feller, to form its second national branch. “Our vision is to have six to 10 offices, each with more of a regional focus geographically,” said Herrold, who anticipates the company employing up to 15 brokers per office. “I could envision one more office opening in 2010, and two the following year,” he said. “That’s kind of my personal goal. Now Stan (Johnson, founder) would tell you, ‘Let’s open three or four this year,’ but we have to be smart about it.” While certain Tulsa brokers ponder relocating to organically build offices,

choked off developer activity in many retail markets. Since new product had represented 70 percent of Stan Johnson sales activity, extending its broker reach would allow the company to connect with more investors seeking to sell netlease properties. That “resell” business had comprised 30 percent of activity before the recession. “That percentage may be more balanced out today because new construcSee PLATEAU, Page 22

Tax credit for industry restored BY M. SCOTT CARTER THE JOURNAL RECORD

OKLAHOMA CITY – Last Friday, in the final minutes of the legislative session, state lawmakers restored a previously eliminated tax credit for the wind energy industry after industry lobbyists mounted a full-scale assault. The credit, bundled in House Bill 3024, passed the House on a 91-8 vote at 4:34 p.m. Friday. Then, at 4:51 p.m., just nine minutes before the Senate was forced to adjourn for the year, the bill passed the Senate 443. Written by state Rep. Jeff Hickman, RDacoma, and state Sen. Mike Mazzei, RTulsa, the legislation restored tax credit

payments for the wind industry, historic property renovations and businesses that invest in infrastructure and add employees. Originally part of the “revenue enhancement” component of the $6.68 billion budget bill, those tax credits had been eliminated by Senate Bill 1267, which gutted several credits, including a tax credit for zero-emission power plants such as wind farms. The tax credit moratorium was set to generate about $25 million; of that figure, about $600,000 was used to fund the zero-emission facility tax credit. Industry officials touted the credit, passed several years ago, as responsible for bringing several large wind-energy projects to the state.

But as the session wound to a close, the enhancement package – along with the budget, itself – proved unpopular with many business and conservative groups. In a media statement released as the budget deal was being voted on, the conservative group Oklahomans for Responsible Government complained the deal included gimmicks and didn’t cut spending deep enough. “The budget agreement reached between Governor Henry and legislative leaders relied far too much on so-called ‘revenue enhancements’ and not enough on budget cuts,” said Brian Downs, OFRG’s executive director. “While lawSee CREDIT, Page 23

Back to auction block by July? Some real estate analysts see delaying tactics in withdrawal from sheriff sale BY KIRBY LEE DAVIS THE JOURNAL RECORD

TULSA – Mid-Continent Tower may return to the auction block by July. Originally listed among Tuesday’s Tulsa County sheriff’s sale properties, the historic Tulsa skyscraper was yanked from the list Friday for unspecified reasons. “They were very reluctant to share any rationale for waiting,” said Terry Argue, whose company Argue Properties has managed the 321,500-

square-foot tower through more than a decade of court receivership. Friday’s abrupt move led some real estate executives to question whether the building sale would indeed happen this summer – or year. “I’m guessing that was a ploy to get somebody to react,” said Howard Wolf, managing broker of Wolf Group Properties in Tulsa. “The reason they pulled was they didn’t want to drive a stake into the sand. They didn’t want to publicly state a price for that.” With three buildings packaged for auction – the original 16-story Cosden Building opened in 1918, the 36-story addition by Reading and Bates in 1984 and a seven-story parking garage across the street – Tulsa County appraisals had set the combined value at $17.9 million. Bidding would have required a two-thirds opening amount. Some Oklahoma real estate veterans had equated that to a steal, while others had grumbled that the June 1 auc-

tion date left too short a timetable for potential buyers to complete due diligence or line up financing. Friday’s delay could allow brokers like Tim Strange, managing director of Sperry Van Ness/William T. Strange and Associates, to shore up offers by potential buyers. Already having one in hand, Strange said Tuesday he was pursuing that possibility. “I can say the same thing,” said Wolf. “I have a guy who can do that. The reason he’s not taking it seriously is there’s very little information. The product needs to be marketed.” Wolf, who thought the building would draw better results marketed by a traditional property receiver rather than through a sheriff’s sale, doubted the 36-story tower would reach a sales resolution before the end of the year. But Argue said he expects building See AUCTION, Page 22

TULSA – The Central Hockey League and the International Hockey League signed a letter of intent to form a Double-A league beginning in the 2010-2011 season, officials announced on Tuesday. It is too early to tell what the impact would be on Tulsa, which plays in the Central Hockey League, said Steve McCall, Tulsa Oilers broadcaster and media relations director. “CHL officials meet beginning Thursday in Gilbert, Ariz., to work out the remaining material terms,” McCall said. Operating guidelines, including the teams competing in the CHL, divisional alignment, the 20102011 regular-season schedule and various hockey operations issues, will be discussed at the CHL Summer Conference. Talks will continue at the IHL meetings in Las Vegas on June 21 to 23. “We expect some of their teams will be playing in the league,” McCall said. Schedules will be released in mid-July, he said. Tulsa will likely maintain its rivalry with Wichita and Colorado. The Oklahoma City Barons will join the Triple-A American Hockey League and be affiliated with the Edmonton Oilers in the National Hockey League. Tulsa is not affiliated with an NHL squad. The arrangement between the CHL and the IHL should create an innovative and exciting Double-A level professional hockey league, said Dennis Hextall, IHL commissioner. “The two leagues each have long-standing histories and share the common goal of solidifying minor professional hockey for our players, our passionate fans and their communities. I believe this arrangement will enable our teams to recruit the best young talent to join our league, with the potential of improving their game and moving up to the higher leagues,” Hextall said. Both leagues have worked hard to establish tremendous entertainment at a great value for their fans, said Duane Lewis, CHL commissioner. “And, by combining our resources, we believe we can strengthen those efforts, providing greater fan interest as well as a stronger brand,” he said.

OKC apartment complex sold for $3.18 million BY BRIANNA BAILEY THE JOURNAL RECORD

OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City apartment complex has sold for roughly $1 million less than what it went for just three-and-a-half years ago. The Delaware-based limited liability company Summerscape Holdings finalized its purchase of the Summerscape apartment complex at 3250 SE 44th St. for $3.18 million last week from Oklahoma-based Summerscape Group LLC.

“While the owners recognized a fairly large loss on the sale, they were glad to sell it and be released from the liability,” said Mike Buhl, president of the Norman-based Commercial Realty Resources, who represented the seller in the transaction. “I think we will continue to see more sales like Summerscape as the transitioning aspects of the local multifamily market become more transparent.” The Summerscape Group purchased the 125-unit apartment complex on 12.03 acres in January 2006 for $4.2 million,

according to the Oklahoma County assessor’s office. As part of the recent sale, the Oklahoma company negotiated a deal that allowed Summerscape Holdings to take over their loan on the property and exit the market, Buhl said. “This sale demonstrates the market conditions for many owners who acquired similar assets during the boom periods of the past several years and are now faced with loan maturities that force them to sell,” Buhl said. The Summerscape complex is just the

latest of several multifamily residential properties that have sold at a loss, said independent real estate consultant Darren Currin. “I think every apartment deal that has closed this year has sold for an amount that was less than the previous sale,” Currin said. “We’re seeing a lot of troubled assets in the market.” The 102,285-square-foot complex of one- to three-bedroom apartments built in 1968 is near SE 44th Street and S. Bryant Avenue, just down the road from Tinker Air Force Base.

PROGRAM DETAILS WOUNDS OF WAR Oklahoma Chautauqua will bring The Wounds of War: A Tale of Two Americas to Oklahoma State University-Tulsa June 8 through June 12. The performances and accompanying workshops, free and open to the public, are sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa. The Chautauqua program will explore the injuries that the Civil War left on the nation and its people. Appearing in costume, scholars will recount stories in the characters’ own words and in the language of their time. A question-andanswer session with each scholar both in and out of character will follow each performance. Scholars performing in this year’s living history program will be portraying Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, two of the most famous and celebrated generals in American history; William Seward, well-known political figure and U.S. secretary of state under President Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson; Maj. Martin Delany, an African-American abolitionist and the first African-American field officer in the U.S. Army during the Civil War; and Clara Barton, a teacher, battlefield nurse and organizer of the American Red Cross. Ken Busby, executive director of the Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa, says these characters are historical figures who were wounded in body, mind and spirit by the war, a great divide in the nation. Daily workshops will take place at noon and 5:30 p.m. each day in OSU-Tulsa’s Conference Center, North Hall 150. Following Chautauqua tradition, the performances will be presented in a tent.

OG&E announces smart-grid agreements OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Gas and Electric on Tuesday announced two smart-grid agreements. The electric utility announced a stipulated agreement with all the parties to its application at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission that, if approved, would authorize the Oklahoma City-based company to spend up to $366.4 million on smart-grid deployment by the end of 2012. OG&E also announced an agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy finalizing the process for receiving $130 million in stimulus funding for smartgrid implementation. Receipt of the stimulus funding is a condition of the stipulated agreement and will reduce the cost of deployment by more than onethird. “These two agreements are important steps for the rollout of one of the most comprehensive smart-grid programs in the nation,” said Pete Delaney, chairman, president and CEO of OGE Energy Corp., parent company of OG&E. “The smart-grid program as we’ve designed it is an essential component in our strategy to directly engage our electric customers in an effort to help them manage energy consumption.

This Side of the Fence: Space for a future As a recent transplant to Oklahoma City from Cincinnati, I have shopped locally for books to send back home showcasing our new home. I’ve come across a few that have highlighted the architectural history of Oklahoma City. I agree that there are some buildings that just need to be done away with, but there were some gorgeous buildings with so much character that are only a memory now. I was stunned at some of the decisions that made way for what I would consider to be eyesores presently. As Oklahoma City evolves, it will be a shame that we can’t offer the architectural tours that are so popular in other cities because of the losses.

The tax credit moratorium: What it would mean for wind Clouds of oil are billowing into the Gulf of Mexico and they want to curtail tax credits to the wind energy. When will they finally figure out that zero emissions are good for both the environment and the economy?

We need to send BP a thank-you note. Yes, that mess in the Gulf of Mexico is the largest man-made environmental disaster in the history of history and, yes, it is to the Valdez spill what Katrina was to yesterday’s rainstorm. Environmentalists, and pretty much every other resident of this planet, are outraged. The popular mantra will have something to do with the evils of Big Oil and the drive of corporate greed outweighing human and ecological welfare, and that cry will sound loudly and long. British Petroleum, Transocean and the rest of the industry will be quick to point out that the restrictions placed on offshore drilling (not on the coasts, please, only in the Gulf, and then not quite so close to shore, please) forced the development of deepwater drilling. And, they’ll contend, it’s just awfully darn difficult to handle a problem that’s a mile underwater. If there’s a problem on

land, or even in shallow water, a human can go fix it. But no one’s diving a mile below the surface to fix a problem, and it’s a lot harder to do with robots. To wit: Day 44 is here and the goo continues to spew. They will also point out that the disaster is the first of its kind and that as an industry they have a perfectly admirable safety record among offshore platforms. All of that is true. But all of it will be hard to sell to a public that is unsympathetic to the industry in particular and, at the moment, not feeling too friendly toward big business in general. We have, now, a moratorium in the Gulf that could turn into a long-term ban. Carry that thinking forward and we cut off 20 percent of our oil supply. That would mean a substantial increase in our dependence on imported oil from countries that present some trust issues or a quick shift to other energy sources. No one is ready to fill the family Suburban with gas that’s $5 per gallon, so closing the valve on the Gulf pipeline even partially will cause shrieks from wallet pain. Nonetheless, it is possi-

ble, albeit unlikely, that the hole in the bottom of the sea that has run amok could tip the sentiment scales just far enough that the national mood turns away from the oil spigot. Where to turn? Right now the oil and gas industry in Oklahoma is a lot more gas than oil. If we turn away from our oil addiction, we pivot to electricity generated by wind, natural gas and coal. Two of those are great news for Oklahoma. And if we cut down on gasoline-powered cars, we end up with vehicles powered by electricity or compressed natural gas, which is selling at retail stations for about $1.25 per gallon. Either way, Oklahoma wins again. The BP/Transocean mess in the Gulf will hurt the energy industry. It will lead to more regulations and higher costs for any company that wants to extract oil from the sea. But Oklahoma’s energy companies do their drilling on land, and they mostly drill for gas. Even if our national conscience eventually gets over this spill, it’s another push away from oil dependence. Crazy as it sounds, that’s good for Oklahoma.

Midwest economic index up for 6th straight month OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – The economy in nine Midwest and Plains states continues to strengthen, but a new report released Tuesday suggests businesses are reluctant to hire new workers, so unemployment will likely remain high. The overall Mid-America Business Conditions index rose for the sixth month in a row in May, but economic doubts remain because of the financial turmoil in Europe and concerns that exports will suffer if the dollar continues strengthening. “There is just too much economic uncertainty right now for firms to hire more aggressively. It is going to take many months before most states in the region recover jobs lost since the recession,” Creighton University economics professor Ernie Goss said. The report, which is based on a survey of supply managers and business leaders, uses a collection of indexes that range

from zero to 100, and any score above 50 suggests economic growth in the next three to six months. Scores below 50 suggest a contracting economy. The overall index grew to 64.2 in May from April’s already-strong 61.7, suggesting good things for the economy in Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma and South Dakota. For the fifth month in a row, Oklahoma’s overall index came in above growth-neutral. Its overall index rose to 59.8 in May from 59.7 in April. Components of Oklahoma’s overall reading were new orders at 66.9, production, or sales, at 55.8, delivery lead time at 86.8, inventories at 45.9 and employment at 43.9. Oklahoma is regaining some of the more than 52,000 jobs it has lost since the recession began, Goss said.

“Based on the latest state job data and Oklahoma’s recovery from the 2001 recession, I do not expect the state to fully restore these jobs until October 2011,” he said. Goss, who oversees the survey, said it will take many months for most states in the region to recover the jobs they lost during the Great Recession, so unemployment won’t improve quickly even though the employment index hit its highest level in nearly four years. The employment index increased to 60.1 in May from April’s 58.4 and March’s 57.9. “The financial turmoil in Europe is a threat to the economic expansion under way. It has increased the value of the dollar, which has made U.S. manufactured goods and farm products less competitive abroad,” Goss said. But thus far the stronger dollar hasn’t hurt exports. The export order index grew

to 59 in May from April’s 57. The import index also improved in May to 63.2 from April’s 59.8. Goss said the survey shows that the region’s business managers remain optimistic about the next six months. The May confidence index slipped to 69 in May from April’s 72.9 but remained well above the growth-neutral score of 50. The prices-paid index, which tracks the cost of raw materials and supplies, remained high in May at 80.4, but it was down slightly from April’s 81.2. For the fourth consecutive month, supply managers increased inventory levels. The survey’s inventory index increased to 54.6 in May from April’s 53.2. For other components of the overall index, new orders increased to 72.4 from April’s 70, production or sales hit 72.2, up from 65.8, and delivery lead time grew to 62.1 from 61.4.

Education budget cuts force drastic district moves BY MURRAY EVANS ASSOCIATED PRESS

OKLAHOMA CITY – With the Washita Heights School District out of money and no help apparent on the horizon, Superintendent Steve Richert went before the school board and told its members he needed to lose his job – because the district would have to be shut down. The district’s already precarious financial situation became untenable when state appropriations began to be cut as legislators scrambled to make up a $669 million budget hole for the current fiscal year. Richert worked the numbers and determined his school district – which served the tiny Washita County towns of Corn and Colony – would run out of money by May 1. The western Oklahoma district was able to finish out the school year, barely, and now has been consolidated with neighboring Cordell, leaving Richert to wrap up Washita Heights’ remaining business by June 30. “Technically and legally, Washita Heights is a memory right now,” Richert said, sitting in his office. “We no longer exist.” Similar stories are being told across Oklahoma. Two other districts – Goodland in Choctaw County and Boley in Okfuskee County – have consolidated with neighboring districts. School patrons in Braman in

Kay County and White Oak in Craig County voted to eliminate their high schools in an effort to preserve their districts. On Thursday, the state Board of Education denied accreditation to the Bell Public School in Adair County and next month plans to force it to consolidate with

a neighboring district. Bell ended the school year more than $200,000 in debt. The culprit in most of the closures and consolidations? A lack of students, which translates to less public funding. Small schools already struggling to maintain instructional standards were pushed over the virtual precipice by state funding cuts. And those cuts aren’t done yet, as lawmakers had about $1.2 billion less to spend for the upcoming fiscal year than for the current one. A $6.7 billion state budget originally included $2.375 billion for common education, although state education officials say that number dropped by $8.5 million even as the budget agreement worked its way through the Legislature. A bill awaiting Gov. Brad Henry’s signature would eliminate reimbursements for school districts for tax exemptions given to businesses. Although legislative leaders say common education received “only” a 2.9-percent budget cut, that was from a revised, $2.446 billion appropriation level determined in March, after the budget crunch hit the state in earnest. When compared to what the Legislature appropriated last May for the current fiscal year – about $2.572 billion – schools will see a budget reduction of about 7.6 percent. And, according to state Department of Education officials, it’s really a little worse: 8.9 percent after figuring in other reduc-

tions and shortfalls such as state funding for rising health care costs. “I would say it’s the most devastating cut education has ever taken,” state Superintendent Sandy Garrett said. “It’s a very sad state of affairs and the more we can do to make our message clear and to not be using a wrong-percentage cut ... then perhaps folks will start understanding that (the state’s) priorities are misplaced.” After Bell is consolidated, Oklahoma will have 528 districts – four fewer than last year, but a number that some legislators still calls excessive. State Sen. Steve Russell, R-Oklahoma City, is a vocal critic of what he believes is bloated administration within Oklahoma’s public school system. Russell said Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia combined have fewer school districts than Oklahoma. “How can we justify having more school districts than those four states combined?” Russell asked. “And they’re Southern states with very similar social values that we have here in Oklahoma. They get it, that you cannot have an overadministration and expect dollars to go to teachers in the classroom.” A graduate of Del City High School with two children who attend public schools, Russell said he believes too many See DRASTIC, Page 22

ENDING MEDICARE CAN REDUCE RATIONING, COSTS “The decision is not whether or not we will ration care – the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.” These are the words of Donald Berwick, President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It appears to me Berwick has had his eyes closed for quite some time. In February, I wrote about the need for Medicare reform and how Congress must do something about the upcoming 21-percent cut in Medicare reimbursements. Fast-forward four months. On Friday, Congress again agreed to delay the same 21-percent cut, creating an apparent short-term solution to a longterm problem. But the real problem is a program on the verge of bankruptcy that continues to price medical providers out of treating Medicare recipients. The result is rationing of care, which has already begun. Some of our country’s most prestigious medical centers are already changing their policy on Medicare patients. The Mayo Clinic, one of the most recognizable names in medicine, has chosen to be nonparticipating in the Medicare program. They still see patients with Medicare, but they don’t accept Medicare as payment in full. Instead, the Mayo Clinic requires patients to cover the additional costs that Medicare doesn’t cover. In addition, their primary-care clinic in Arizona has quit accepting Medicare altogether. Why? Because they, like most U.S. hospitals and physicians, lose money on Medicare. Not making less money, not breaking even – but losing money. To cover losses due to Medicare, the cost is passed on to non-Medicare consumers, driving up the cost of health insurance premiums and treatment. The result is a short-circuited system that makes quality medical treatment too costly for many. According to the 2009 Social Security and Medicare Trustees Reports, the two programs have a combined unfunded liability of more than $107 trillion, seven times the size of the U.S. economy and 10 times the size of the outstanding national debt. The unfunded liability is the difference between the benefits that have been promised to current and future retirees and what will be collected in dedicated taxes and Medicare premiums. This funding gap can only be closed by substantial tax increases, large benefit cuts or both. The most realistic and logical answer – cutting Medicare altogether – is not a popular one. But it makes the most sense. Every American becomes eligible for Medicare at the age of 65, whether they need the program or not. In 10 years, Bill Gates will be Medicare-eligible. Warren Buffett’s been eligible See HOLDEN, Page 23

Dieting for dollars? More U.S. employees trying it BY MIKE STOBBE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATLANTA – How much money would it take to get you to lose some serious weight? $100? $500? Many employers are betting they can find your price. At least a third of U.S. companies offer financial incentives, or are planning to introduce them, to get their employees to lose weight or get healthier in other ways. “There’s been an explosion of interest in this,” said Dr. Kevin Volpp, director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Health Incentives. Take OhioHealth, a hospital chain whose work force is mostly overweight. The company last year embarked on a program that paid employees to wear pedometers and get paid for walking. The more they walk, the more they win – up to $500 a year. Anecdotal success stories are everywhere. Half of the 9,000 employees at the chain’s five main hospitals signed up, more than $377,000 in rewards have already been paid out, and many workers tell of weight loss and a sudden need for slimmer clothes. But does will this kind of effort really put a permanent dent in American’s seemingly intractable obesity problem? Not likely. “It’s probably a waste of time,” said Kelly Brownell, director of Yale University’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity. Brownell’s assessment is harsher than most. But the science seems to back him up. Only about 15 to 20 U.S. studies have tried to evaluate the effect of financial incentives on weight loss. Most of those studies were small and didn’t look at whether such measures worked beyond a few months. None could make conclusions about how much money it takes to make a lasting difference for most people. Perhaps the largest effort to date was an observational study by Cornell University. It looked at seven employer programs and the results were depressing: The average weight loss in most was little more than a pound. Sure, there are grounds for optimism. Smaller experiments report some success. And other studies have shown

Covidien to buy medical device maker ev3 for $2.6B BY MARLEY SEAMAN ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK – Covidien PLC said Tuesday it is buying medical device maker ev3 for $2.6 billion in cash as it continues to revamp its business. Covidien, which makes drugs and medical devices, will pay $22.50 for each share of ev3, a premium of nearly 19 percent over Friday’s closing price. Ev3’s devices are used in endovascular surgeries, or operations in which surgeons make small incisions and maneuver devices in the body using major blood vessels. Other products are used in neurovascular procedures, or procedures involving both blood vessels and nerves. Ev3

expects $520 million to $530 million in revenue this year. Ev3 also makes stents and balloon catheters, which are used to open arteries that have been blocked by fatty plaque. The boards of both companies have approved the deal, and investors who own 24 percent of ev3 shares have also agreed to vote in favor of the sale. The companies say the deal should be complete by July 31 assuming regulators approve. Covidien, based in Dublin, Ireland, will fund the purchase with a combination of cash and debt. It said the transaction will reduce its earnings per share by 5 to 8 cents this year and 10 to 15 cents in 2011. Ev3 shares gained $3.31, or 17.5 percent, to

$22.23 in midday trading, and reached an annual high of $22.27. The stock has traded between $8.83 and $20 over the last 12 months. The shares set an annual high in May after the Plymouth, Minn., company said it finished filing for regulatory approval of a device that is intended to divert blood away from cerebral aneurysms during surgery. The company hopes the Pipeline Embolization Device will be approved in 2011. A cerebral aneurysm is a weak spot in the wall of a blood vessel inside the brain. Covidien expects more than $11 billion in revenue in its current fiscal year, which ends in September. It gets most of its revenue from medical devices. In addition to vascular

devices, those products include surgical instruments, tissue grafts, monitoring devices and ventilators. It also sells brandname and generic drugs and drug ingredients, and medical supplies. In a note to clients, Jefferies & Co. analyst Joshua Jennings said the deal makes sense for both companies because there is very little overlap between ev3’s products, especially its central vein access and neurovascular devices, and the products sold by Covidien. “From a product standpoint, the acquisition of ev3 will enable Covidien to significantly expand its presence in the vascular See DEVICE, Page 22

Congress investigating J&J ‘phantom recall’ BY MATTHEW PERRONE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – Congressional Democrats are investigating an alleged “phantom recall” by Johnson & Johnson, in which the company hired a contractor to buy up defective painkillers instead of issuing an immediate recall. The company’s handling of problems with its Motrin tablets came to light last week at a congressional hearing to examine ongoing quality issues with J&J medica-

tions. Lawmakers began investigating the company over its most recent recall of more than 130 million bottles of children’s medicine, some of which contained tiny particles of metal. On Tuesday lawmakers announced an investigation into the company’s handling of an older quality issue with more than 88,000 Motrin packets distributed in 2008. In a May 28 letter obtained by The Associated Press, a House committee chairman asks J&J’s CEO William Weldon to turn over information relating to the so-

called phantom recall. “It raises the question of whether Johnson & Johnson placed a higher priority on preserving the reputation of its Motrin brand than it did on consumer protection,” states the letter from Chairman Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y., who chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. A memo titled “Motrin Purchase Project,” obtained by congressional investigators instructs employees: “You should simply ‘act’ like a regular customer while

making these purchases. There must be no mention of this being a recall of the product!” J&J later recalled the medication in July 2009 after Food and Drug Administration officials learned about the contractor’s activities. Towns asks J&J to identify all J&J employees involved with the decision to repurchase the Motrin. He also asks whether the company has used contractors See PHANTOM, Page 22

Foundation awards grant to OMRF researcher OKLAHOMA CITY – The Arthritis Foundation has cited one of Tim Griffin’s research papers as the second most influential publication in the field for all of 2009. The foundation also awarded the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation researcher a $200,000 grant to continue his work, which examines the role of the weight-regulating hormone leptin in the progression of arthritis. Griffin joined the OMRF faculty in 2008, fresh out of post-doctoral training at Duke University. “Our initial findings yielded a lot of unanswered questions, and what we learn through future studies could have a broad impact on improving our population’s health,” said Griffin, an assistant member of OMRF’s Free Radical Biology and Aging Research Program. In research using obese laboratory mice, Griffin found that osteoarthritis in the animals may not only be caused by carrying too much weight, but also by other obesity-related factors such as leptin production. These findings are consistent with prior research showing that obese people are also more likely to have osteoarthritis in non-weight-bearing joints, such as the hand. “Osteoarthritis is an incredibly painful disease. It’s the primary cause of disability in the United States, and it creates a real challenge for those suffering from this disease to live active, healthy lives,” he said. “If we can stop the vicious cycle and stop the osteoarthritis, we might make it easier for people to exercise, lose weight, and live a longer, healthier life.” Griffin’s findings, published in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism, were chosen for recognition from among leading papers published in numerous high-profile scientific journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine, Science, Nature and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The research also led to the award of an Innovative Research Grant from the Arthritis Foundation.

Study: 10 minutes of exercise, hour-long effects BY LAURAN NEERGAARD ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – Ten minutes of brisk exercise triggers metabolic changes that last at least an hour. The unfair news for panting newbies: The more fit you are, the more benefits you just might be getting. We all know that exercise and a good diet are important for health, protecting against heart disease and diabetes, among other conditions. But what exactly causes the health improvement from working up a sweat or from eating, say, more olive oil than saturated fat? And are some people biologically predisposed to get more benefit than others? They’re among questions that metabolic profiling, a new field called metabolomics, aims to answer in hopes of one day optimizing those benefits – or finding patterns that may signal risk for disease and new ways to treat it. “We’re only beginning to catalog the metabolic variability between people,” says Dr. Robert Gerszten of Massachusetts General Hospital, whose team just took a step toward that goal. The researchers measured biochemical changes in the blood of a variety of people: the healthy middle-aged, some who became short of breath

with exertion, and marathon runners. First, in 70 healthy people put on a treadmill, the team found more than 20 metabolites that change during exercise, naturally produced compounds involved in burning calories and fat and improving blood-sugar control. Some weren’t known until now to be involved with exercise. Some revved up during exercise, like those involved in processing fat. Others involved with cellular stress decreased with exercise. Those are pretty wonky findings, a first step in a complex field. But they back today’s health advice that even brief bouts of activity are good. “Ten minutes of exercise has at least an hour of effects on your body,” says Gerszten, who found some of the metabol-

ic changes that began after 10 minutes on the treadmill still were measurable 60 minutes after people cooled down. Your heart rate rapidly drops back to normal when you quit moving, usually in 10 minutes or so. So finding lingering biochemical changes offers what Gerszten calls “tantalizing evidence” of how exercise may be building up longer-term benefits. Back to the blood. Thinner people had greater increases in a metabolite named niacinamide, a nutrient byproduct that’s involved in blood-sugar control, the team from Mass General and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard reported last week in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Checking a metabolite of fat breakdown, the team found people who were more fit – as measured by oxygen intake during exercise – appeared to be burning more fat than the less fit, or than people with shortness of breath, a possible symptom of heart disease. The extremely fit – 25 Boston Marathon runners – had tenfold increases in that metabolite after the race. Still other differences in metabolites allowed the researchers to tell which runners had finished in under four hours and which weren’t as speedy. “We have a FILE PHOTO

chemical snapshot of what the more fit person looks like. Now we have to see if making someone’s metabolism look like that snapshot, whether or not that’s going to improve their performance,” says Gerszten, whose ultimate goal is better cardiac care. Don’t expect a pill ever to substitute for a workout – the new work shows how complicated the body’s response to exercise is, says metabolomics researcher Dr. Debbie Muoio of Duke University Medical Center. But scientists are hunting nutritional compounds that might help tweak metabolic processes in specific ways. For example, Muoio discovered the muscles of diabetic animals lack enough of a metabolite named carnitine, and that feeding them more improved their control of blood sugar. Now, Muoio is beginning a pilot study in 25 older adults with pre-diabetes to see if carnitine supplements might work similarly in people who lack enough. Next up: With University of Vermont researchers, she’s testing how metabolic changes correlate with health measures in a study of people who alternate between a carefully controlled Mediterranean diet and higher-fat diets. “The long-term hope is you could use this in making our way toward personalized medicine,” Muoio says.

Poll finds debt-dogged Americans stressed-out BY JEANNINE AVERSA ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – The economy trudges ahead yet debt dogs many Americans, stressing them out even as they firm up their own financial foundations. There are new jobs produced but old worries persisting for people despite belttightening and boosted savings, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll. About 46 percent of those surveyed say they’re suffering from debt-related stress, and half of that group described their stress as “great deal” or “quite a bit.” On the other hand, about 53 percent say they feel little or no stress at all. That’s in line with findings from last year, even though times seem better today: The economy is growing and generating jobs, and households have made progress in repairing their financial footing, trimming debt, watching spending and saving more. It’s a big turnaround from a year ago – a shrinking economy, jobs jettisoned as businesses struggled to survive the deepest recession since the 1930s. So why aren’t the stressed – and the notso-stressed – feeling better? For starters, it just doesn’t feel much like a recovery to many people. Unemployment is stubbornly high – 9.9 percent. The jobless face fierce competition for work. Those with a job are watching their paychecks shrink. A growing number of people are at risk of falling into foreclosure, and only those with the most stellar credit probably can get a new loan. AP-GfK polls show that only 20 percent say the economy is good, compared with 15 percent last year. Cynthia Bryant, 73, feels stress from her bills – much of that heartburn related to medical expenses. “I need a different car. I can’t afford it. I have to watch every penny that comes in,” says Bryant, who worked as a purchasing agent for a computer company before she retired. Bryant, who lives in a Denver suburb, gets by on a fixed income that hasn’t budged, although her expenses – rent, groceries and other basics – have risen. Ken Goldstein, economist at the Conference Board, a research group that keeps close tabs on consumers, says it’s people’s individual circumstances – more so than their sentiment about the economy – that shape their confidence and their stress over debt. “It’s about what happens

Laid off twice in the past two years, Standridge has watched her income drop. She worries about losing her current job as an administrative assistant for a company that designs and builds wastewater control systems. Standridge and her husband, who works

People are whittling their debt. The average amount owed on credit

cards is $3,900, the poll said. That’s down from $5,600 in the fall and $4,900 last spring. Families with incomes over $50,000 have sliced their credit card debt by more than half, yet their stress from debt hasn’t changed much – it’s moderately low. Families with incomes under $50,000, however, have added only slightly to their See STRESSED-OUT, Page 23

AIG won’t accept lower Prudential offer for AIA BY ROBERT BARR ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON – Bailed-out U.S. insurer AIG said Tuesday it won’t accept a lower offer for its Asian insurance business from Prudential, which proposed a $5 billion cut to calm rebellious shareholders who thought the price was too high. London Stock Exchange-listed Prudential PLC initially agreed to pay $35.5 billion for AIA, the Asian insurance business of American International Group Inc. Faced with the growing possibility that it could not win 75-percent backing from shareholders, Prudential lowered the offer to $30.375 billion. “After careful consideration, the company will adhere to the original terms of its previously announced agreement with

Prudential,” AIG said in a statement. “The company will not consider revisions to those terms.” “The board of Prudential is considering its position,” the company said in a brief statement to the London Stock Exchange. “A further announcement will be made when appropriate.” AIG, majority-owned by the U.S. government, planned to use the proceeds from the sale to repay U.S. taxpayers for some of the $180 billion it got in bailout money during the financial crisis. Barrie Cornes, analyst at Panmure Gordon in London, said he believed AIG had killed the ambitious deal. “We think that AIG’s response is a surprise given the market movement since the deal was announced and the obvious opposition to the excessive price being paid by

Pru’s shareholders,” Cornes said. Prudential shares were 6.9 percent higher at 579 pence in midafternoon trading on the London Stock Exchange, a sign that the market would regard the collapse of the AIA deal as positive at least in the near term. Pru shares had been at 603 pence before the announcement of the proposed takeover of AIA. Prudential needs to line up support from holders of 75 percent of its shares by June 7. If the AIA deal falls through, Prudential will owe AIG a termination fee of $230.6 million. Opponents of the deal have formed a Prudential Action Group, which is seeking to muster support for a vote of no confidence in the Prudential’s chief executive Tidjane Thiam. The group claims that at least 15 percent of shareholders intend to

vote against the deal. AIG hoped to raise a total $51 billion from the Prudential deal and the sale of its American Life Insurance Co. division to MetLife Inc. “Clearly as majority owner of AIG, the hand of the U.S. government is writ large over the apparent rejection of price conciliation,” said Howard Wheeldon, senior strategist at BGC Partners in London. “Pity, but then again, why should they renegotiate just because the other side got its sums wrong?” Prudential disclosed on Tuesday that its lower offer included $23 billion cash, $5.375 billion worth of shares in the combined companies and $2 billion in notes. Prudential saw the acquisition of AIA as See OFFER, Page 23

Study: Digital ticketing reduces collisions BY D. RAY TUTTLE THE JOURNAL RECORD

SAND SPRINGS – Sand Springs police report that vehicle crashes dropped 11 percent in the year since beginning use of an electronic ticketing program. The Sand Springs Police Department purchased electronic ticketing devices from Tulsa-based Saltus Technologies a little more than a year ago and launched a yearlong study using the electronic traffic citation system, branded “digiTicket,” on May 15, 2009. The Sand Springs police and Saltus released results on Tuesday. “I think it’s a tremendous part of our organization,” said Assistant Police Chief

U.S. probes reports of mats trapping pedals in Fords BY STEPHEN MANNING ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – Federal safety regulators are investigating a few reports of gas pedals becoming trapped by floor mats in 2010 Ford Fusions and Mercury Milans. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened a preliminary investigation Friday after receiving three such complaints involving unsecured all-weather floor mats. There are no reports of crashes or injuries. A Ford spokesman, Said Deep, said the problem was due to drivers stacking all-weather mats on top of floor mats that come with the vehicle. Ford’s allweather mats have warnings advising customers not to pile them and to secure them properly to the floor, he said. In a consumer advisory Tuesday, NHTSA said the problem was most likely to occur when a driver pressed on the pedal while merging or passing in traffic. The safety agency also warned Fusion and Milan owners not to stack mats. The issue is similar to Toyota’s problems with floor mats that led to the recall of more than 5 million vehicles worldwide. In those cases, drivers said their vehicles sped up when pedals became lodged under all-weather mats that were stacked on top of the floor mats. To solve the problem, Toyota shortened its gas pedals and took out some of the carpet padding below the pedal. Safety officials said the investigation covers about 250,000 Fusions and Milans. The preliminary investigation is meant to try to verify whether the complaints have merit and gauge the seriousness of any potential problems. The Fusion, a midsize sedan, is one of Ford’s most popular models, with more than 70,000 sold in the first four months of 2010. This year, Ford has sold about 11,500 Mercury Milans, a car that is essentially the same as the Fusion.

Our stats show there has been a reduction in the number of vehicle collisions.” From July 2008 through May 2009, collisions dropped 5.3 percent. Over a twoyear period, collisions dropped more than 16 percent within the Sand Springs community. Saltus developed digiTicket, which allows officers to use a hand-held mobile computer to scan a driver’s license bar code, which automatically enters the driver’s data.

Hewlett-Packard to cut 9,000 jobs in services unit BY BARBARA ORTUTAY ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK – Hewlett-Packard Co. said Tuesday it will lay off about 9,000 workers in the unit that provides technology services to other businesses as the company consolidates and automates its commercial data centers. The cuts will be made over about three years and amount to some 3 percent of HP’s global work force of 304,000 employees as of October 2009, the most recent figure available. The company said it plans to replace two-thirds of those jobs, hiring 6,000 people to boost its global sales and delivery staff. HP said the job cuts will result from productivity gains and automation in the data centers, which are clusters of computers that HP’s business customers tap into to store data, run software and perform other tasks. Like most companies that offer such services, HP has data centers around the world. HP did not specify the locations of its planned cuts. Once it completes the restructuring, HP said it will see savings of about $500 million to $700 million a year. HP, which is based in Palo Alto, Calif., said it will take $1 billion in charges, about half of it in the current quarter and the rest by October 2013, the end of its fiscal year.

The charges, which are largely for severance expenses, will be excluded from the company’s adjusted earnings results. HP, the world’s biggest maker of PCs and printers and the top technology company by revenue, has been working to expand its business in other areas as PC profit margins are usually thin. To boost its services business, the company bought Electronic Data Systems, a rival of IBM Corp., in 2008, cutting 24,600 jobs as part of that acquisition. HP said the commercial data centers will help its corporate clients run their businesses faster and more efficiently. Ann Livermore, executive vice president for HP Enterprise Business, said the company is confident its actions will “provide a foundation for growth for the next 10 years.” “We believe that these sets of actions will enable HP to grow better than the market,” she said in a conference call with analysts. Standard & Poor’s equity analyst Tom Smith applauded HP’s latest actions, calling them the “next step toward efficiency gains” after the initial integration of EDS. In addition to business services, HP is also pushing into the mobile market with its planned acquisition of struggling smart phone maker Palm Inc., announced in April.

Feds open criminal probe of Gulf oil spill BY BEN NUCKOLS AND JANE WARDELL ASSOCIATED PRESS

PORT FOURCHON, La. – Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that federal authorities have opened criminal and civil investigations into the nation’s worst oil spill, and BP lost billions in market value when shares dropped in the first trading day since the company failed yet again to plug the gusher. Investors presumably realized the best chance to stop the leak was months away and there was no end in sight to the cleanup. As BP settled in for the long-term, Holder announced the criminal probe, though he would not specify the companies or individuals that might be targeted. “We will closely examine the actions of those involved in the spill. If we find evidence of illegal behavior, we will be extremely forceful in our response,” Holder said in New Orleans. With the ambitious “top kill” abandoned over the weekend, BP’s hope to stanch the leak lies with two relief wells that won’t be finished until at least August. The company is, however, trying another risky temporary fix to contain the oil and siphon it to the surface by sawing through the leaking pipe and putting a cap over the spill. Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the national incident commander, said Tuesday that BP was making its first major cut with super shears that weigh 46,000 pounds and resemble a giant garden tool. The company will also use a powerful diamond-edged cutter the resembles a deli slicer to try to make a clean cut above the blowout preventer, then will lower a cap over it with a rubber seal. After several failed attempts to divert or block the well, BP’s latest attempt involves cutting the broken riser pipe, making it spew as much as 20 percent more oil into the water for days while engineers try to position a cap over the opening. Eric Smith, an associate director of the Tulane Energy Institute, said the strategy had about a 50- to 70-percent chance to succeed. He likened it to trying to place a tiny cap on a fire hydrant. “Will they have enough weight to overcome the force of the flow?” he said. “It

could create a lot of turbulence, but I do think they’ll have enough weight.” BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said there was no guarantee the cut-andcap effort would work. He did say the company has learned from past efforts to contain the leak, which gives them a better shot at success. “I’m very hopeful,” Suttles said. “I think we’ll find out over the next couple of days.” The cleanup, relief wells and temporary fixes were being watched closely by President Barack Obama’s administration. The president gave the leaders of an independent commission investigating the spill orders to thoroughly examine the disaster and its causes, and to follow the facts wherever they lead, without fear or favor.

The president said that if laws are insufficient, they’ll be changed. He said that if government oversight wasn’t tough enough, that will change, too. Meanwhile, BP spokesman Graham MacEwen said the company was awaiting analysis of water samples taken in the Gulf before making a final determination on whether huge plumes of oil are suspended underwater. CEO Tony Hayward said Sunday there was “no evidence” of the plumes even though several scientists have made the claims. Billy Nungesser, president of Plaquemines Parish, fired back at Hayward. “We ought to take him offshore and dunk him 10 feet underwater and pull him

up and ask him ‘What’s that all over your face?’“ said Nungesser. On the business side of things, the company’s share price, which has fallen steadily since the start of the disaster, took a turn for the worse Tuesday, losing 15 percent to $6.13 in early afternoon trading on the London Stock Exchange. That was the lowest level in more than a year. The shares have now lost more than a third of their value, wiping some $63 billion off BP’s value, since the explosion at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig six weeks ago. BP said early Tuesday it had spent $990 million so far on fighting and cleaning the spill, with multiple lawsuits for damages See SPILL, Page 23

No more record low: Canada raises interest rates BY ROB GILLIES ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO – Canada on Tuesday became the first Group of Seven nation to raise interest rates since the global financial crisis, but said any further hikes would depend on global economic conditions. The Bank of Canada increased its key interest rate by a quarter point to 0.50 percent from a record-low rate of 0.25 percent. The bank said thus far the impact of Europe’s sovereign debt crisis in Canada has largely been limited to a modest fall in commodity prices. It said the decision to raise rates still leaves considerable monetary stimulus in place. Economists widely expected the central bank to raise rates after the country’s economy grew 6.1 percent in the first three months of this year, emerging from the global downturn faster than the U.S.

Canada withstood the global economic crisis better than most developed countries. Canada has not experienced the failure of any major financial institution, and there has been no crippling mortgage meltdown or banking crisis due to greater regulation. “While Canada joined with other countries in taking interest rates down to virtually zero the sense of crisis was never as great here,” said Avery Shenfeld, chief economist at CIBC World Markets. The government recently tightened some mortgage rules over concerns low rates could lead to a bubble. A hot housing market fueled by low rates and rising inflation factored into the rate hike. The bank noted the robust 6.1-percent growth of Canada’s economy led by housing and consumer spending. But Canada’s economy, a resource-rich economy dependent on oil and other commodity prices, remains vulnerable to a global downturn.

Shenfeld pointed out that the central bank didn’t include the usual statement about further rate hikes being required. “They’ve left themselves an out to stop after one trivial move if financial markets and commodity markets continue to tell them that the global economy is going in the other direction,” Shenfeld said. Canada’s dollar fell 0.64 to US95.19 cents after the announcement. The central bank said economic conditions around the world are uneven and there’s the possibility of renewed weakness in Europe. “Given the considerable uncertainty surrounding the outlook, any further reduction of monetary stimulus would have to be weighed carefully against domestic and global economic developments,” the bank said Royal Bank Chief Economist Craig Wright noted that although Canada is the first of the G-7 countries to raise rates it is a very modest move. The G-7 includes the United States, the United Kingdom,

France, Germany, Italy and Japan. Australia’s central bank left its key interest rate unchanged at 4.5 percent Tuesday, citing increased caution among investors in the wake of Europe’s sovereign debt crisis. Australia, which like Canada is heavily dependent on commodity exports, has increased the interest rate six times since October. Wright said Canada’s central bank’s statement shows that further rate hikes are not assured. “It’s probably well-warranted given the uncertainties out there,” he said. Mark Carney, the head of Canada’s central bank, had pledged in April, 2009 to hold rates at the historic-low through mid2010, but said in his last statement in April that the need for record-low rates is now passing and it is appropriate to begin to lessen the degree of monetary stimulus. Carney is a former Goldman Sachs executive who took the central bank’s top post on Feb. 1, 2008.

FDA clears Amgen’s bone-strengthening drug, Prolia BY MATTHEW PERRONE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday approved Amgen’s bone strengthening drug, Prolia, for postmenopausal women at risk for fractures, a potential blockbuster market. The injectable drug is given once every six months to increase bone mass and strength. Analysts think Prolia should bring Amgen billions in revenue after it is launched. Sales of the company’s former top sellers, the anemia drugs, Aranesp and

Epogen, have dropped in recent years due to safety concerns and label restrictions. Pill-based osteoporosis drugs, such as Fosamax and Zometa, have been available for more than a decade. But Amgen Executive Vice President Dr. Roger Perlmutter said many women can’t tolerate those drugs or have trouble remembering to take a daily medication. Amgen said in a statement that Prolia is the first drug to target a cellular pathway that breaks down bones. One out of every two women over age 50 will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis, which causes bones to

become brittle, according to an FDA statement. An analysis cited by Amgen estimates that osteoporosis-related fractures will cost the U.S. health care system $25 billion annually by 2025. FDA approved the drug based on a 7,000-patient study conducted by Amgen that showed reduced vertebrae and hip fractures in postmenopausal women. Common side effects with the drug included back pain, high cholesterol and urinary bladder infections. Thousand Oaks, Calif.-based Amgen will be required to distribute patient guides

explaining the drug’s risks. Global sales of osteoporosis treatments topped $8 billion last year, including hundreds of vitamin brands and drugs like GlaxoSmithKline PLC’s Boniva and Merck & Co. Inc.’s Fosamax. With eight other pills and injectable medicines on the market, analysts say Prolia’s success likely will hinge on its price. Prolia will cost $825 per injection, which the Amgen says is competitive with existing treatments. Shares of Amgen rose $1.74, or 3.4 percent, to $50.76 in after-hours trading.

Citi restructures U.S. consumer finance business NEW YORK (AP) – Citigroup Inc. is closing 330 branches of its U.S. consumer finance business as part of a restructuring aimed at finding a buyer for the unit, the bank said Tuesday. The branch closures at CitiFinancial will result in about 500 to 600 job cuts across 48 states, the bank said. The U.S. business of CitiFinancial will also be split into two parts, one

offering personal, home equity and refinancing loans and the other handling loan modifications and restructuring, Citigroup said. CitiFinancial will be renamed after the reorganization is complete. The restructuring “will provide a lot of clarity” into CitiFinancial’s operations for potential buyers of the business, CitiFinancial CEO Mary McDowell said in an interview.

Citigroup split itself into two parts last year – Citicorp and Citi Holdings, the division holding noncore, riskier assets including the mortgage-backed securities that undermined the bank and other financial institutions. CitiFinancial is a part of Citi Holdings. Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit said earlier this year that the bank would continue selling off Citi Holdings, which had $547 billion worth of assets

at the end of 2009. Citigroup received $45 billion in government bailout money at the height of the financial crisis. It raised $20 billion in December to help repay the money it received as part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program. The remaining $25 billion was converted to stock last fall, giving the government what is now a 22-percent ownership stake.

Stocks turn sharply lower in late trading NEW YORK (AP) – Stocks took another late-day dive Tuesday after the government said it was starting criminal and civil investigations into the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped almost 113 points. Its plunge came shortly before the close and minutes after Attorney General Eric Holder made the announcement. Stocks in energy companies and oil service providers tumbled on the news, and other stocks followed. Holder would not say which companies or individuals might be under investigation. But investors quickly dumped stocks across the energy industry. BP PLC, which operated the rig that caused the spill, fell almost 15 percent. Anadarko Petroleum Corp., which has a stake in the rig that exploded, tumbled nearly 20 percent. Oil services company Halliburton Inc. fell almost 15 percent. Analysts have said the oil spill has been among the many issues nagging at investors in recent weeks. Among the fears in the market is the potential economic hit from the spill. But Tuesday’s announcement raised the possibility that oil companies might have to pay out huge amounts in fines, or see their operations hampered by a government investigation. “Right now it’s headline risk that’s killing us in this market,” said Ken Kamen, president of Mercadien Asset Management in Hamilton, N.J. He said the question marks that pop up when news breaks are making traders think it’s safer to just retreat. “When you just get over third-degree burns you don’t go too near that stove. Last year is not too far out of peoples’ minds,” Kamen said, referring to the market’s slide in 2008 and early 2009. Trading was choppy for much of the day before Holder’s announcement, a sign that investors weren’t sure where to put

Specialist Gerard Petti, left, works at his post on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday. AP PHOTO their money. Investors were juggling worries about Europe’s debt problems with upbeat reports on U.S. manufacturing and construction. The euro slid as low as $1.2112, its lowest level since April 2006, before climbing back to $1.2232. The euro’s moves against other currencies have come to reflect traders’ confidence in Europe’s ability to manage a sovereign debt crisis that started in Greece but has spread to other European nations like Portugal and Spain. Stocks did get some early support from the Commerce Department’s report that construction spending rose by the biggest amount in nearly a decade. The 2.7-percent April gain was the largest since August 2000. Economists forecast spending would be flat. However, homebuilders’ stocks fell although the report showed a

big jump in residential building. That blip upward was expected to disappear now that a homebuyers’ tax credit has expired. Meanwhile, the Institute for Supply Management said its manufacturing index fell to 59.7 in May from 60.4 in April. The figure was better than economists’ forecast of 59. The Dow fell 112.61, or 1.1 percent, to 10,024.02. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 18.70, or 1.7 percent, to 1,070.71, while the Nasdaq composite index fell 34.71, or 1.5 percent, to 2,222.33. About four stocks fell for every one that rose on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to 1.4 billion shares. Volume was light because some traders were away for a long Memorial Day holiday. Light volume can intensify swings in the market. Ryan Detrick, senior technical strate-

gist at Schaeffer’s Investment Research in Cincinnati, said volatility is likely to continue through the summer in part because some everyday investors who put money into the market before its drop in May are giving up. That leaves the pros who use automated trades to try to profit from moves in stocks. “It just seems like it’s computers versus computers,” he said. “This volatility is probably here to stay, unfortunately, but that doesn’t mean that the market is going to collapse.” Bond prices rose, sending interest rates lower. The yield on the benchmark 10year Treasury note fell to 3.27 percent from 3.29 percent late Friday. The dollar fell against most other major currencies, while gold rose. Crude oil fell $1.15 to $72.82 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. BP’s U.S.-listed shares dropped $6.43, or nearly 15 percent, to $36.52. Offshore drilling contractor Transocean Ltd., which owns the well, fell $6.73, or 11.9 percent, to $50.04. Anadarko fell $10.23, or almost 20 percent, to $42.10. Halliburton dropped $3.68, or 14.8 percent, to $21.15. Among consumer stocks, Procter & Gamble Co. rose 7 cents to $61.16 and Kraft Foods Inc. rose 30 cents to $28.90. Homebuilder KB Home fell 75 cents, or 5.2 percent, to $13.73, while Toll Brothers Inc. fell 94 cents, or 4.5 percent, to $20.13. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies fell 20.65, or 3.1 percent, to 640.96. Overseas, Britain’s FTSE 100 fell 0.5 percent, Germany’s DAX index rose 0.3 percent, and France’s CAC-40 slipped 0.1 percent. Asian markets fell following a report that China’s manufacturing industry slowed last month. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng fell 1.4 percent, while Japan’s Nikkei stock average lost 0.6 percent.

Good news for drivers: Gas prices can fall more (AP) – Gasoline prices dropped on Tuesday for the 26th straight day as lower oil prices continue to work their way to the nation’s drivers. It looks like there is room for pump prices to move even lower. After hitting a national average of $2.929 per gallon on May 6, retail gasoline prices have fallen 20.2 cents, or nearly 7 percent, to $2.727 per gallon on Tuesday. Tom Kloza of the Oil Price Information Service said while the daily streak of lower prices is likely to end before mid-June, prices still have another 10 or 12 cents to fall. Prices in some parts of the country already are well below the national average. Ohio, Missouri, South Carolina and Oklahoma are among the states where gas has dropped below $2.60 per gallon. Retail gasoline prices fell 0.5 cents overnight, 5.5 cents in the past week and 15.6 cents in the past month. Pump prices are 21.5 cents higher than a year ago. The Energy Department’s weekly report on gasoline prices showed a national average of $2.73 for a gallon of unleaded regular last week. Pump prices declined in all parts of the country. Gas was still about $3 a gallon on the West Coast. The cheapest gas, at an average of $2.63 a gallon, was in the

Midwest. Oil prices finished lower on Tuesday

after testing higher levels. Benchmark crude for July delivery fell $1.39 to settle at

$72.58 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Oil prices moved higher earlier in the session as the euro rose against the dollar, but fell back as the euro weakened again. Commodities priced in dollars, like oil, become more expensive for investors holding euros when the dollar gains. U.S. stock markets rose at first, after the Commerce Department said construction spending grew by the biggest amount in nearly a decade and the Institute for Supply Management said its manufacturing index came in better in May than economists forecast. The bottom fell out at the end of the day. Energy stocks were pounded by news of a criminal probe into the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The Dow Jones industrial average lost about 113 points. The Nasdaq and the S&P 500 were down more than one and a half percent. In other Nymex trading in July contracts, heating oil lost 3.41 cents to settle at $1.9704 a gallon. Gasoline lost 4.41 cents to close at $1.9825 a gallon. Natural gas fell 9.3 cents to settle at $4.248 per 1,000 cubic feet. In London, the Brent crude July contact fell $1.94 to settle at $72.71 on the ICE futures exchange.

approaches to slim the nation. Food companies, worried about potential anti-obesity rules and laws, have publicly endorsed the first lady’s message and recently pledged to offer lower calorie foods, change recipes and cut portion sizes. While watching to see if food makers follow through, some experts remain fascinated by the idea of using economics to get people to eat better and exercise. Sales taxes have been used to drive up the cost of cigarettes and drive down smoking rates, and Brownell and others are pushing for similar taxes on soda. Companies tend to be more interested in incentives than disincentives like taxes. But the perks they attach to wellness programs come in a variety of forms and sizes. Some reward employees just for having a health evaluation or simply enrolling in a class – whether they complete it or not. Others require measurable weight loss or exercise achievement, sometimes structuring it in a contest along the lines of The Biggest Loser TV show. Some companies offer money, some vacation trips. Some refund the cost of Weight Watchers classes. Others reduce health insurance premiums. The value of rewards can range from measly to thousands of dollars. Hunches and human resources budgets – not research – often drive decisions about financial incentive details. Companies are quite frank about it. OhioHealth set the maximum reward for its step-counting program at $500. “It just sounded right to us. We thought that would be a big enough number to help people think twice,” said Lisa Meddock, OhioHealth’s benefits manager IBM rewards employees for doing 12week Web-based health programs. They

offer $150 per program completed because there was a feeling that was the right amount to get people involved, said Dr. Joyce Young, the company’s wellbeing director. Companies “are making best their guesses about what might work and giving it a shot,” said Robert Jeffery, a University of Minnesota professor. He’s been experimenting with financial incentives and weight loss since the 1970s and is perhaps the most veteran researcher in the field. If companies asked the experts, they might be counseled to make their incentives more dramatic – more cash or a bigger penalty in premium costs. Psychologists say people are more motivated by the risk of losing their own money than by a chance they’ll win somebody else’s. Applying that idea to weight loss, some studies have set up refundable

bond systems: Volunteers sign a contract agreeing to lose a certain amount of weight by a certain date or they forfeit their deposited money. One of the seven companies in the Cornell study offered a refundable bond option to employees. Its average weight loss was nearly 4 pounds. That doesn’t sound like a lot but it’s almost twice as much as the average weight loss at companies that paid quarterly rewards. A 2008 University of Pennsylvania study found that after 16 weeks people who put their own money on the line lost about a pound more, on average, than people who got cash from others. Besides employers, a few companies market refundable bond contracts to people trying to lose weight. Using a twist of black humor, a company called StickK.com, sends the forfeited money from those who fail to an organization the

customer despises. “The most popular is the George W. Bush Presidential Library,” said Sam Espinosa, a company spokesman. “Last year, we sent $6,000 to them.” Such programs are voluntary. But critics say that while they may work for a few very motivated people, they may not be effective for most. Some employers worry that if they go too far, it may seem coercive and even grounds for a lawsuit. “They’re very nervous about doing anything that might seem invasive,” said Helen Darling, president of the National Business Group on Health. Many employers believe the wisest approach is to use financial incentives as just one facet of a broader effort to create a culture that makes it harder to be lazy and gluttonous. Kevin Acocella illustrates their point. Acocella, a 35-year-old IBM marketing manager, was 5-feet-9 and a chunky 185 when he decided two years ago to enroll in the company’s Web-based fitness program. IBM’s worksite wellness program is often called a model, with roughly half of the work force earning at least $150 a year for taking part. But Acocella failed twice. The money got his attention. But the problem, he said, was the culture he was in. “In New York City it was, ‘What restaurant can we go to, or what bar can we go to?’“ Early this year, Acocella moved to the IBM office in San Jose, Calif. “Here it’s, ‘What activity can you do, and what can you go see, and how can we figure out a way to not take a car there,’“ he said. Acocella had lost 9 pounds in the three months he’s been there. He recently signed up for the IBM reward program again, but this time it’s incidental to his new active lifestyle. “The real issue was getting myself in a program I could actually do and could keep up with. I don’t think those things swing on a dollar,” he said.

Too many Oklahoma cities don’t devote any of their budgets to senior programs, he said. But there should be other funding sources, including private corporations, philanthropic individuals and organizations, and Indian tribes, he said. “You can’t overnight switch things and make that commitment, but we need to be headed in that direction,” Robertson said. “I would challenge every community in our

high-paid administrators are keeping state dollars for education from going where they’re needed – to teachers and classrooms. “It’s very hard to justify $250,000 salaries for superintendents when the commanding general of all forces overseas doesn’t even make $200,000,” Russell said. “Who has more responsibility – someone in charge of 1,000 students or someone in charge of thousands of soldiers’ lives in lifeor-death situations?” Russell said that, given the state’s massive budget shortfall, he expected education to take deeper cuts. “You cannot put 98 percent of the state’s budget cuts on 45 percent of the budget. It does not work,” he said. “And if you try to take a stand and portray these things to the Oklahoma people, then sud-

state, when they develop their city plans, what does it say about how it will care for seniors? Most city plans are silent on the issue. It’s because if a senior center and a meals program exists in their community, the state and federal government has always paid for it. So it’s never been written into a community plan. “I think we need to recognize the importance of that and, at the community level, keep a close eye on how we could shift things, particularly with the aging population that every community is experiencing,” Robertson said. As more senior programs become selfsustaining, they can serve as models for other communities. Not every program will look the same, he said, but each can serve as an example. Robertson said he’s planning a

“town hall” circuit across the state later this year to talk to community leaders about taking a proactive approach to supporting their seniors. Oklahoma, unlike some other states, has the ability to create those models of senior support because of the camaraderie of its residents, he said. “What I’d like for us to do down the road is to very strategically target what dollars we have available in a way that is a catalyst for communities to get going, and then back off,” Robertson said. “Not punish them and take their money away, but their money goes away because now they’re a self-sustaining model. Then we can put those dollars in another area that needs to get moving. “Of all states, Oklahoma has that natural

kindred spirit that would make one think we ought to be doing this well. But we’re not. But once it takes hold, we could become a model of excellence for the nation because we know how to take care of our own,” he said. “We don’t live in a fragmented society like some other states or metro areas where no one knows their neighbor.” In the short term, Robertson will have to address the budget cut for state fiscal year 2011. He said he’s estimating a $1.1 million cut to the Aging Services Division, which is far more bearable than the 18- to 20-percent cut he was anticipating. He said the division of 260 people will face a further reduction in administrative costs, such as phones and travel, along with another round of voluntary buyouts and a small cut to programs.

new construction and potential new construction. “But I think it’s going to be very slow and steady growth,” he continued. “It’s not going to be the exponential growth that we’ve seen from 2003 to 2007.” He anticipates $1 billion transactional volume for Stan Johnson this year. “We’re certainly on pace to that,” he said. “This year has been a better year than last year, and with the broker growth that we’ve experienced, this year we’ll probably exceed a billion.” Expanding allows Stan Johnson Co. to expand beyond the manpower limitations of its Tulsa base, home to 19 brokers and

15 support staff. Stan Johnson builds its regional offices under lead brokers who rely on the Tulsa headquarters for administrative and infrastructure needs. Each lead broker may anchor a team of two to four brokers. “A lot of it’s at the discretion of the lead broker,” said Herrold. “Our vision is to have four to five lead brokers in each regional city.” Herrold said Stan Johnson’s broker communications and connectivity provide the foundation for its net-lease expertise. Modern technology systems promise to help maintain that through this expansion.

Through this expansion, Stan Johnson Co. hopes to gain market share by increasing the productivity of its existing brokers while adding more brokers. The firm also hopes to augment its headquarters staff, which had 13 brokers when Herrold joined eight years ago. One area where Herrold doesn’t anticipate much growth is Oklahoma City. That 2006 office was set up to accommodate David Akeman. “We don’t envision that office growing unless he were to add to his team,” said Herrold. “He commutes back almost every other week to stay connected with the Tulsa office.”

denly you hate teachers and children. “I don’t hate teachers and I don’t hate children, but I do hate waste and I hate people denying there is a problem.” There was no denying a problem existed before the school year began in Braman, located about five miles south of the Kansas state line. Superintendent Rustin Clark said that because of declining enrollment, the district faced potentially major financial issues and that before the budget cuts hit severely, patrons decided in February to try and preserve the district by closing the high school at the end of this school year. While the budget cuts “were not the deciding factor for us,” Clark said that “it certainly validated that we made a good decision.” “Even if the state had not cut, we were going to have to do something,” he said. “The community was faced with a tough decision. If they did nothing and they kept the high school, the district would have

been completely broke at the end of next year. They would have had to close the whole district. Or, they could cut off the high school and run an efficient K-8 district and maintain it into the foreseeable future.” The state’s two largest districts are dealing with funding issues in part by laying off teachers. The Oklahoma City Public Schools district sent notices to 363 teachers that they might not be employed for the 2010-11 school year. District spokeswoman Kathleen Kennedy said it’s likely that between 130-150 teachers won’t be rehired. The district also plans to close five elementary schools. In the Tulsa Public Schools district, 286 teachers have received non-renewal letters. Spokeswoman Tami Marler said the district plans “to bring back as many as possible” depending on the amount of budget cuts. While larger districts cut teachers, smaller ones simply are trying to survive,

something Washita Heights wasn’t able to do. Richert’s district had 24 employees – including himself – that were let go when the district closed. He fears the same thing will happen in rural towns across Oklahoma. “I look around this area and I look at Retrop, Rocky, Lake Valley, Cowden, Cloud Chief – all very good communities that lost their school” and all but disappeared, he said. “That is so unfortunate that this is happening to rural America. “I don’t want to point the finger at anybody, at our school board. We did what we thought we had to do because of the finances. The Legislature has to do what it has to do and make tough decisions. It’s just a result of economic conditions, not just in Oklahoma, but the entire world. We have to be willing to make the kind of adjustments and sacrifices necessary. You can’t make decisions based on emotion. You’ve got to make them on the facts.”

For those Medicare-eligible individuals who can afford health insurance, it’s time to say “Thank you for your patriotism, but Medicare is now closed.” Berwick’s already stated there will be

some sort of health care rationing. By creating a needs-based program that citizens must qualify for instead of a program like Medicare, we can limit rationing and allow providers to avoid the bureaucracy and focus on treating patients.

The Coast Guard also announced that it was replacing the admiral who has been the federal on-scene coordinator since the oil rig exploded, though the agency said the change was previously planned. Rear Adm. Mary Landry will now return to duties as commandant of the 8th Coast Guard District in New Orleans to focus on hurricane season preparations. BP failed to plug the leak Saturday after several attempts with its top kill, which shot mud and pieces of rubber into the well but couldn’t beat back the pressure of the oil. The spill has already leaked between 20 million and 44 million gallons, according to government estimates. The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration also announced that almost one-third of federal waters – or nearly 76,000 square miles – in the Gulf were closing to commercial and recreational fishing because of the spill. The relief well is the best chance to stop the leak.

makers talked about cuts as high as 10 percent, in the end the overall cut was less than 4 percent. As a result, closing the $1.2 billion budget gap used only $256 million in cuts, relying on gimmicks like a tax on health care claims and raiding the Rainy Day Fund to the point where only $100 million is left for 2012 and beyond.” But by late Friday, the revenue component of the budget had, again, undergone major changes, including the reinstatement of many previously eliminated tax credits.

debt, while their stress level rose sharply. Goldstein says human nature can factor into people’s feelings of debt-related stress. “You have the optimists and the pessimists. You get half the world looking up at the stars and the other half with their head down looking at the mud,” he says.

People defaulting on mortgages and other loans factor into the reduction, economists point out. Household debt fell 1.7 percent last year

the earth. If it misses, BP will have to back up its drill, plug the hole it just created, and try again. “The probability of them hitting it on the very first shot is virtually nil,” said David Rensink, incoming president of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, who spent most of his 39 years in the oil industry in offshore exploration. “If they get it on the first three or four shots they’d be very lucky.” The trial-and-error process could take weeks, but it will eventually work, scientists and BP said. Then engineers will then pump mud and cement through pipes to ultimately seal the well. On the slim chance the relief well doesn’t work, scientists weren’t sure exactly how much – or how long – the oil would flow. The gusher would continue until the well bore hole collapsed or pressure in the reservoir dropped to a point where oil was no longer pushed to the surface, said Tad Patzek, chair of the Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering Department at the University of Texas-Austin.

very important.” Continuing the ADvantage program is a vital part of the division’s four-year state plan, which it recently finished. Last fiscal year, 24,000 Oklahomans received a variety of ADvantage’s 16 services, ranging from home health visits to meals. The program started small, with about 36 seniors, then around 2004, it took off. To qualify, seniors must be able to care for themselves enough to stay at home and have support from family and friends. Velma Butler of Oklahoma City said her ADvantage case manager is one of her favorite people, helping her when she needs something new, like a rail bar for her tub. Butler’s family visits regularly too, cooking meals to give her a break from the frozen meals that are delivered. “The program has just been so wonderful for me. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world,” she said. Seniors in the ADvantage program also are more likely to receive continued visits and support from their family, Robertson said, because they feel more comfortable calling or dropping by. The challenge of the ADvantage program is that it has grown so much that it has operated over budget for the past several years, Robertson said. The budget for the program is about $41 million in state dollars, but the division was over budget

this year by about $12 million, he said. But in recent years, the program has seen something of a plateau, so it shouldn’t face any budgetary hurdles, he said. Another component of the ADvantage program, CD-PASS, also has been appealing to some Oklahoma seniors. CD-PASS – consumer-directed care — differs from ADvantage in that qualifying seniors get to choose their own health care providers or home health agencies instead of the state doing it for them. For seniors with a high mental acuity, it’s a good option, Robertson said. CD-PASS has been a pilot project in Tulsa for several years with 425 seniors choosing their own care. He said he’d like to see the program expanded statewide, but there isn’t enough money. Tom Dunning, programs administrator for Home and Community Based Services of the Aging Services Division, said CD-PASS isn’t for everyone, but for those who can manage the work, it pays off, especially when it comes to setting their own schedules. “So many times, our traditional system has said, ‘We’ll have an attendant at your home at 7 a.m.,” Dunning said. “Well, what if I don’t want to get out of bed at 7? It’s no fault of the aide or home health agency, that’s just how the care delivery system nationwide has evolved. So in the past few years, there’s been a push toward finding a way to let consumers manage their own care.”

Henry in restoring tax incentives for zero-emission power plants such as wind farms,” said Denise Bode, CEO of the American Wind Energy Association. “We also very much appreciate the strong support we have received from AWEA members OG&E and DMI Industries, our regional partner The Wind Coalition headed by Paul Sadler, and the Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce on this issue.” Bode said many companies were looking at locating facilities in Oklahoma and the lack of a tax credit could have proven costly. “A number of companies are looking at sitting these facilities in the Sooner State,” she said. “Tens of millions of dollars for the Oklahoma economy are at stake in the competition for new facilities going on at the state level. The wind industry can rest assured that it is wel-

come in one of the top wind states in the country.” Senate Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee, an Oklahoma City Republican, said the lastminute change was made to protect the industry. “It’s a fledgling industry and we want to push it,” he said. Yet even with the changes, not every wind energy representative was pleased by the legislation. Mike Bergey, president of Norman-based Bergey Windpower, said even with the last-minute change, the state is at a competitive disadvantage in alternative-energy legislation. “It’s better than Senate Bill 1267, but it still puts us in a poor competitive position versus neighboring states that are incentivizing and promoting energy development,” Bergey said. Downs agreed, saying lawmakers

“made things difficult” for next year’s Legislature. “It’s unfortunate that lawmakers chose to find ways of raising more money instead of limiting the size of government during an economic downturn,” Downs said. Bergey said it was ironic that earlier this month, lawmakers and the governor “were bragging about the signing of a bill to set wind power goals, when neighboring states actually have a mandate.” “We passed a very watered-down goal, bragged about it, then two weeks later kicked the industry in the stomach,” he said. “It’s a funny way to attract new jobs to Oklahoma. It does sting when the oil and gas industry gets a gift and we get a lump of coal, but we’ll adjust.” House Bill 3024 is currently awaiting review by Henry.

to $13.5 trillion, according to the Fed. It was the first annual drop, based on records going back to 1945. People on average carry around $44,000 in debt – mortgages, credit cards, auto loans and other consumer debt. That’s a far bigger load than in the early 1980s, when unemployment topped 10 percent. In 1982, per capita debt totaled about $14,000 in today’s dollars. At the same time, people are building up their savings – 4.2 percent of their disposable income last year, the most since 1998, the Commerce Department says. A Debt Stress Index tied to the AP-GfK poll was 29.2 in May, unchanged from a year ago. The reading signals moderately low

stress. Paul J. Lavrakas, a research psychologist and AP consultant who analyzed the APGfK survey, finds that among those with the most stress from debt are women, married couples, people ages 30 to 44, and the poor – households with incomes less than $20,000. Those with the least debt stress include men, retired people, single people, those 60 and older, and the wealthy – households with incomes greater than $100,000, he says. Last year, Democrats felt better about their finances than Republicans, despite generally being in worse shape. That sense seems to have worn off: Democrats now report higher debt stress levels on average

than Republicans. Retired mechanical engineer Patrick Burns, 60, of Allyn, Wash., is among those who isn’t stressed over debt. He keeps his IOUs to a minimum. “I’ve never really gotten into debt,” he says. “I’ve always kind of lived within my means, and I’ve found there’s a lot less stress with that.” The AP-GfK poll involved interviews with 1,002 adults and was conducted May 711. The margin of sampling error was plus or minus 4.3 percentage points. AP director of polling Trevor Tompson and writer Christine Simmons contributed to this report.

Wildlife diversity biologist

BY BRIAN BRUS THE JOURNAL RECORD

OKLAHOMA CITY – Melynda Hickman is the kind of person who enjoys seeing strangers wandering through her yard. As long as they have fur or feathers, the more the merrier. Antennae also, but scales less so. “And I can’t say that I’ve ever had anyone mention armadillo as a species they want to attract,” said Hickman, the state Department of Wildlife Conservation’s wildlife diversity biologist in charge of Oklahoma’s backyard wildscaping program. “I don’t get a lot of interest in opossums or raccoons or skunks, either. “And I haven’t met anyone who has asked about encouraging snakes to their property, but I suppose it’s possible,” she said. Wildscaping is similar to landscaping, but with the emphasis shifted to making the environment inviting and comfortable to nonhunting critters. If she can help an urban landowner attract frogs, bats or songbirds, for example, then Hickman has done her job. If a landowner is looking for a black-and-orange tenant, for example, berries are important. Orioles appreciate plants that produce fruit in early summer such as raspberries and blackberries, and fruits that come into their own a little later such as the native rough-leaf dogwood with its little white berries. Sumac shrubs are also good producers for orioles, Hickman said. The wildscaping itself doesn’t have to be elaborate.

Unfortunately, bats don’t read the same textbooks people do, so they don’t know they’re supposed to come into our yards to eat our mosquitoes. - Melynda Hickman

Something as simple and small as a container garden with the right flowers on the porch will suffice, given the right weather and a little time. It does take planning and an appreciation for the limits of the environment, however. Even the most succulent fruit smorgasbord isn’t going to mean much if an animal can’t find water nearby. Downtown living provides its own challenges as well, although ducks seem to have a knack of landing in fountains each year. Hickman provides pointers

on how ornamental koi gardens can be adapted for shallow-water birdbaths. All species are not created equal in the public’s eyes, of course. Owls and hawks are invited to help displace rodents. Squirrels are fun to have around, at least until they get into an attic or start stealing birdseed. Frogs and toads are sought out because they’re innocuous and helpful for insect control, and people often ask about attracting bats for the same reason, specifically to eliminate mosquitoes. “Unfortunately, bats don’t read the same textbooks people do, so they don’t know they’re supposed to come into our yards to eat our mosquitoes,” Hickman said. “The Mexican free-tailed bat forages up higher in the sky where the moths are. Fortunately, those moths are pretty hard on our crops, so it still works out for the best.” The department offers the public a wildlife certification program for wildscaping. Applications, maps, photos and follow-up surveys provide feedback so Hickman can track her success. She is the sole administrator for the program, though, so site visits are rare. She also gets feedback through the program’s online newsletter. The ultimate goal is for people to enjoy the natural resources of their state more. “It’s not really a big change in wildlife populations. It’s just a way of trying to do something for the animals, to bring them closer to home,” she said. “We have more and more people moving into urban areas, and if you can do something on your property like that, I think you’ll find it enhances your own life and experience of the incredible diversity of wildlife we have in Oklahoma.”
