Doctors denounce Medicare scale Traffic mirror
breakage stirs safety concern
CHICAGO (AP) — Doctors ai the American Medical Association’s convention said they are all for changing the way Medicare reimburses them. They just don’t want to be paid less.
A Bush administration plan to take effect in January would do just that.
The AMA’s policy-making House of Delegates on Thursday, the last day of its annual convention in Chicago, adopted resolutions denouncing the plan as “demeaning and misleading” and calling for a lobbying effort to change the fee structure
“We support payment reform,” said board member Thomas Reardon, a family pracutioncr from Portland, Ore “But we want it done in a fair and equitable manner ”
The AMA also warned that the plan could dimmish the access senior citizens have to health care.
Senate rejects handgun change
WASHINGTON (APj — A proposed sever.-da> waiting period for handgun purchases survived an important test in the Senate early today when lawmakers rejected an alternative measure backed by the National Rifle Association.
The Senate voted 54-44 against the NRA-backed alternative, which gun-control supporters said was merely designed to sabotage the waiting period in the so-called Brady Bill.
The alternative, proposed by Sen Ted Stevens, R-Alaska. was similar to a plan rejected by the House las: month when it passed the Brady Bill in an historic break with the NRA
Instead of requiring a waning period, Stevens' measure would have given states two years to set up a system to let gun dealers check computerized criminal records to determine if a purchaser was a convicted felon
The vote to defeat the proposal was important test for the Brady Bill in the Senate, where the measure s supporters had acknowledged they faced a tougher fight than in the House

Vandals continue to cause traffic safety problems ai the intersection of Rosemary Drive and Fredericksburg Road by breaking the traffic mirror there.
Residents traveling downhill ai Rosemary use the mirror to see oncoming traffic on Fredericksburg. said Council Member Clinton Brandi, who lives in the area. A private individual purchased the first mirror and each replacement mirror, all installed by the city, he said.
Each of the round two-foot convex mirrors costs at least $100, City Manager Paul Grohman said.
Brandt said he thinks the vandal lives in the area or travels the roads daily because the last few mirrors installed were broken immediately.
The last one, installed the afternoon before graduation, was broken by the next morning, he said Brandi urges anyone with information to call the police department
The city next plans to install a virtually indestructible polished chrome mirror, Grohman said.
