St. Louis, MO, October 25, 2022– Lumeris, a leading provider of the technology, insurance capabilities and expertise to support value-based care models, announced today the 2023 market expansion of Essence Healthcare, the company’s wholly owned Medicare Advantage (MA) plan, into five new states and 44 new counties. This expansion is a 223% increase in county coverage in just one year, marking the company’s explosive growth due to customer and provider satisfaction with Essence’s distinctive MA plan and benefits.

“We are passionate about our vision to create the system of care every doctor wants for their own family,” said Michael Long, chairman and CEO of Lumeris. “While the health care delivery system in the United States has struggled to balance quality, cost, and patient and physician satisfaction, Lumeris has demonstrated that it is not only possible, but also scalable.

Judge appoints lawyer to represent interests of Orioles owner Peter Angelos; Georgia, Louis Angelos appear at court


A judge appointed a lawyer on Thursday to represent the interests of Peter Angelos, who has been incapacitated by illness as his family fights over control of his assets, including his legendary law firm and the Baltimore Orioles.

Baltimore County Circuit Judge Keith R. Truffer also moved to avoid a threat by Wells Fargo to freeze the Angelos law firm’s accounts because of the family dispute over the ownership and management of the practice, known for winning billions of dollars on behalf of asbestos and tobacco victims.

But the judge saved for another day decisions on other requests from the feuding family’s lawyers, including whether the law firm should be placed under a temporary conservator.

Truffer appointed Benjamin Rosenberg, founder and chairman of Rosenberg Martin Greenberg in Baltimore, to represent Angelos in the legal proceedings that have his wife, Georgia, and elder son John, the Orioles chairman and CEO, facing off against younger son Louis.

Georgia Angelos, 80, waited in a courthouse hallway, expecting to be called to testify at the hearing, but Truffer determined that would be unnecessary. Louis Angelos, 53, who has been managing his father’s law firm, sat in the courtroom with his attorneys. John Angelos, 55, was not seen in the courtroom.

For all of Peter Angelos’ prominence in legal, political, philanthropic and sports circles, he and his family have largely shunned the spotlight that they now find themselves in.

“This family has always been a very private family,” noted Jeffrey E. Nusinov, who represents Louis Angelos, at one point during the hearing.

Trident Refit Facility Kings Bay Dry Dock Completes Recapitalization Project; Holds Re-Opening Ceremony


KINGS BAY, Ga. (Oct. 18, 2022) – Trident Refit Facility Kings Bay held a ceremony marking the re-opening of its dry dock at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Georgia, Oct. 18.

The nearly $600 million Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Southeast recapitalization project began in the summer of 2020.

More than 1,000 people worked on the project, spearheaded by Alberici-Mortenson, Joint Venture.

“I am super proud of what Resident Officer in Charge of Construction (ROICC) Trident and our contractor partners have been able to accomplish in 15 short months,” said Cmdr. Marcel Duplantier, ROICC Trident. “To be able to look out across the dry dock and see the massive transformation this project has provided to this critical infrastructure is truly remarkable.”

The 15-month project consisted of three phases which included construction of temporary work and storage spaces, procurement of long lead items, replacement of roof and wall panels, recoating of all structural steel, replacement of utility systems that support the docked submarine and replacement of all of the dry dock systems that move water in and out of the dock, as well as various upgrades.

Having a functional dry dock ensures the eight Ohio-class submarines homeported at the base can keep up with maintenance schedules, remain operational and continue the mission of strategic deterrence.

Georgia Garden Danger: Poisonous Snakes


Any of Georgia’s many venomous snakes could be slithering in the weeds as you’re clearing out your garden. Learning how to recognize dangerous snakes is essential to the safety of your family and pets. Just as important is knowing the do’s and don’ts when you identify that a snake has nested on your property and that includes having a trusted wildlife control and removal expert on call.

We can’t give snakes a completely bad rep, not even those with poisonous, lethal bits. Why not, you ask?

  • Snakes are an important component of the Georgia ecosystem because of their crucial role as both predator and prey.
  • Snakes are environmentally beneficial because they eat all kinds of rodents such as rats, mice, and other animals deemed to be pests.
  • Some varieties of snakes serve as bioindicators of levels of pollutants in land and aquatic ecosystems.

Believe it or not, there are laws protecting snakes. Even so, you don’t want snakes going after your small pets, slinking around your property or sneaking into your house. These factors make snake identification and control and removal of snakes a responsibility for all homeowners to share.

Common Venomous Snakes in Georgia

The primary group of venomous snakes in Georgia are the Pit Vipers, which have a heat-sensing pit between the eyes and nostril. Pit Vipers have fangs that fold against the roof of the mouth. Most, but not all, pit vipers have triangular-shaped heads (as do a small variety of non-venomous water snakes). The pupil of the eye is vertical.
