Missouri man admits defrauding Pulaski Bank

Sunday, 22 December 2013 08:36 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A 52-year-old has pleaded guilty to fraudulently obtaining millions of dollars in loans from a suburban St. Louis bank.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Michael Filmore of Chesterfield entered the plea Friday in federal court. Filmore admitted through his plea that he lied about the destination of the money and falsified a brokerage account statement claiming $5.5 million to back up a $1 million line of credit.

Filmore told Pulaski Bank that the loans would be used to broker and lease medical equipment. Many of the loans were in the name of his business, Healthcare Partners Group LLC.

According to court testimony, Filmore obtained more than $6 million through fraud and still owes more than $5 million.

Rural Missouri residents more likely to be uninsured

Sunday, 22 December 2013 08:34 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Missourians who live in rural areas are far less likely to have health insurance than those living near big cities, according to U.S. Census data.

The Associated Press examined county-by-county data for 2011, the most recent year available.

The numbers show the uphill climb facing President Barack Obama's health care overhaul in Missouri, which opted against setting up its own exchange and instead allowed the federal government to run it.

Missouri overall ranks right in the middle of the nation in the percentage of uninsured residents under age 65 — tied with Washington state at 25th with 16 percent uninsured. But in 34 of Missouri's 115 counties, one-fifth to one-quarter of non-senior residents lack health insurance. Twenty-seven of those 34 counties have fewer than 25,000 residents.

Winter storm moves through Missouri and Illinois

Sunday, 22 December 2013 08:32 Published in Local News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A winter storm is moving into Missouri this weekend, bringing freezing rain and snow.

The National Weather Service said Saturday that winter storm warnings were in effect for much of the state, except the extreme southeast, where flood warnings have been issued.

Freezing rain and sleet began hitting south-central and southwest Missouri on Friday night. Throughout Saturday the freezing precipitation began spreading to the north and east. Accidents were reported in the Kansas City metropolitan area and points to the north and east.

The freezing rain was expected to switch to snow in the evening hours in west-central and northwest Missouri. Forecasters say accumulations will range from 6 inches or more in northwest Missouri to 1 inch or less in an area from Clinton to Columbia.

Temperatures are expected to begin dropping overnight and into Sunday.
