DYER, Ind. (AP) — From extended blood pressure cuffs to roomier dental exam chairs and wider terry cloth hospital slippers, the health care industry continues to adapt to larger patients as America's obesity rate climbs.

In Lake County, 36 percent of adults are considered obese, defined as having a body mass index greater than 30, according to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute most recent County Health Rankings.

"We are one of the most weight-challenged counties in a state that ranks 13th in the nation," said Kathy O'Donnell, a nurse and manager of the Midwest Bariatric Institute at Franciscan St. Margaret Health hospital in Dyer.

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — Trustees at Ohio University have stepped in after the Internal Revenue Service said the school's president must pay taxes on the free, on-campus lodging provided for him.

An ongoing IRS audit of OU found that President Roderick McDavis should be paying taxes on his free residency in the 7,000 square-foot university-owned house in the heart of the Athens campus in southeast Ohio.

The university's board of trustees voted last month to cover the unexpected cost of about $19,000 in federal, state and local taxes for this year. The university is also going to cover the taxes on McDavis' term life insurance, which the audit also said was taxable. That brings the total to about $30,000.
