New dental school addresses Mo. dentist shortage

Wednesday, 02 October 2013 09:01 Published in Local News

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A new Kirksville dental school is seeking to ease a shortage of dentists in Missouri.

 

   The Columbia Missourian (http://is.gd/5WDHI6 ) reports that the Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health opened Tuesday at A.T. Still University. The only other dental school in the state is at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

 

   The new dental school's initial class of 42 includes only nine Missouri residents. But the school hopes that its health center placement program will persuade many of them to remain in state.

   Dentists are in short supply across much of the state. Missouri ranks 41 out of 50 states in adult oral health based on the percentage of adults who regularly visit the dentist. But the low number of dentists is not the only factor holding down the ranking.

 

Judge rules with KKK over leafleting lawsuit

Wednesday, 02 October 2013 08:48 Published in Local News

 ST. LOUIS (AP) - For the second time this year, a federal court has ruled that the eastern Missouri town of Desloge cannot ban the Ku Klux Klan - or any other group - from passing out handbills.

 

   U.S. Magistrate Judge Nannette A. Baker's ruling Tuesday stops Desloge from enforcing an ordinance that prohibits leafleting on the street. The American Civil Liberties Union sued on behalf of the KKK.

 

   The ACLU initially filed suit in 2012, and a judge struck down the original ordinance. Desloge revised the law, but the ACLU also challenged the revision, claiming that it, too, violated free speech rights.

 

   Desloge City Administrator Greg Camp says the ordinance is aimed at keeping pedestrians safe, not singling out offensive groups.

 

   Camp says city officials haven't decided whether to appeal.
