B4 The Arizona Republic Sunday, April 25, 1993 Cruiser control for a clogged artery Arizona Town Hall urges health coverage for everyone CRUiStf, from page HI McDonald's restaurant just south of Rocscr Road, a favorite hangout for cruisers. "The cruisers account for some business, but I think wc probably lose a little business, too," Burnett said, In front of the McDonald's, five tccn-age girls in tube tops and tight shorts pranced along the sidewalk, calling to boys cruising past in cars. "Hey, YOU! Yes you guys!" a girl with curly black hair shouted. "Come over here and talk to us!" As the girls shouted and waved, a "dropped," metallic-blue '64 Chevy Irnpala with four young men inside did a hard right into the McDonald's. Audra Hayes, 21, who works at a Dunkin Donuts a few blocks south of the McDonald's, has little use for cruisers.

"It's awful on Friday and Saturday nights," she said. "We get almost no business. Kids hang out in the parking lot and scare away customers. We're open until II p.m., and I'm alone, and it's scary," weeks, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

for those age 15 and younger. Sixteen-and 17-year-olds must be home by midnight. "A lot of the worst trouble happens at one, two, three in the morning, when a lot of kids are still driving around," Phoenix Police Sgt. Ron Vasquez said at the Harmon Park recreation center, where curfew violators are1 brought and where they await a parent or guardian to pick them up. So far, police efforts have had little impact on the cruising scene, where friendships develop, dates are made and scores are settled.

Adrian Flores and his friends think there's no way the police can drive the cruisers off Central Avenue. "Look how many of us there are," Flores said, pointing to the street, where the stereos in passing cars blared rock or rap music. flores laughed. "They gonna put everyone on South Central in jail? I don't think so." ARIZONA, from page 1)1 not necessarily be forced to provide health insurance. Some delegates had argued for a provision of insurance outside the workplace.

But others noted that 84 percent of Arizonans now are covered, most through their jobs. The other 16 percent could be covered through AHCCCS, the report said. A sliding-fee schedule could be used so that those who could afford to do so would pay for part of their care. AHCCCS generally was praised by the Town Hall, which was attended by 154 people, many of them connected with the medical field. "Town Hall believes that AHCCCS is a viable model for the rest of the country because AHCCCS plans have begun to integrate illness care, public health and preventive programs effectively," the report said.

AHCCCS has been widely praised for its efficiency. However, the group also was told that federally funded programs such as AHCCCS often are guilty of using their muscle to negotiate too-low prices with hospitals. That often results in hospitals charging private patients and their insurers more, a process called cost shifting. "Cost shifting is in reality government plunder. The biggest cost shifter in this state, besides Medicare, is AHCCCS," said Reid Wood, president of Marcus J.

Lawrence Hospital in Cottonwood. "Using AHCCCS as a model for the rest of the country is like saying we need to use Madonna as an example of chastity." Dr. Leonard Kirschner, the director of AHCCCS, denied Wood's charge and later said that he hoped the group's work would influence the Legislature. "You have some very influential members of the Legislature here," he said. "It is part of the educational process."

The cars inched along, stopped, then moved a few feet while the youths hang out the windows and shout at one another. The cops looked like they would rather Ik somewhere anywhere else.
