Leading local news coverage on the Peninsula
By Carla K. Johnson
CHICAGO — The Obama administrationis delaying yet another aspect of the healthcare law, putting off until next Novemberthe launch of an online portal to the healthinsurance marketplace for small businesses.The move, announced Wednesday, wasneeded because repairs are still underway tothe troubled HealthCare.gov website, whichis the primary way for individuals to applyfor insurance, and that has priority, federalofficials said.In a conference call with reporters,administration officials said employers whowant to buy marketplace plans for theirworkers now will need to go through anagent, broker or insurance company thisyear, instead of using the government web-site. The administration said the plan willstill allow small businesses to buy cover-age but avoid slowing technical repairs tothe hobbled federal online site.Under the law, most small businesses donot have to provide coverage. But firmswith 50 or more employees face a mandateto offer insurance or risk fines from the gov-ernment in 2015.The HealthCare.gov site, where individu-als without employer-sponsored health carecan shop for insurance, is now smoothlyhandling 25,000 users at the same time andis on track to meet its goal of handling50,000 simultaneous users by Saturday, saidadministration spokeswoman JulieBataille. “We have a lot of work left to do inthe next few days,” she said.

Two Burlingame High School sopho-mores want to help feed the less fortunatewith a program they started this summerthat gets girls involved in helping a partic-ular cause.Eleni Rally and Gracie Brand launchedtheir nonprofit Camp for a Cause in Augustraising more than $2,100 for their firstcause, Alzheimer’s disease research andcare. Their second camp, a Thanksgivingsession, began Sunday and runs until tomor-row. The cause this time is InnVisionShelter Network in San Mateo. The eightcampers, age 10-12, are baking bread forthe cause, learning and performing dancesand volunteering as a camp onThanksgiving morning to help prepare theThanksgiving meal. “Our idea for this organization was to cre-ate a way to do meaningful community serv-ice, and have fun while doing so,” theywrote in a statement. “We decided to gather agroup of campers to help us with our cause,by means of a common passion — dance.We knew that our first cause would beAlzheimer’s, in that we both have hadfriends and family suffer from or die fromthis disease.”The girls are starting out small and local,but hope to expand their work to help manyother causes that are important in the world. “We hope that we can raise awareness andteach others that doing charity and serviceis very fulfilling and fun too,” they wrote.What do the two like about running thecamp?“We love that we can dance and work withyoung girls, because it is always fun andexciting,” they wrote. “The campers get sointo learning the dances, performing andraising money, it is very touching. The workis all so worth it knowing that at the end of the day, we will have made a differencethrough our fundraising and volunteering.”For this Thanksgiving event, they hopeto raise close to $1,000. The camp is volun-teering at First Step for Families in SanMateo from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. onThanksgiving morning and they are donat-ing dozens of pumpkin bread loaves toShelter Network to give to its residents anddonors.Over summer vacation, the two girls planto have at least two weeks of camp, but thecauses they will be supporting are stillundetermined, as well as the dates.For more information or to make a dona-tion to their cause, visitcampsforacause.org. The camp will perform11 a.m. tomorrow at the Burlingame Avenuetrain station. Camp for a Cause baked morethan 100 loaves of homemade pumpkinbread. Sixty were donated to the VendomeHotel in San Mateo and the rest will be soldby the campers to raise money for theShelter Network.
