Police searching for Vianney High burglar

Wednesday, 18 September 2013 01:06 Published in Local News

   Kirkwood Police are asking for the public's help to catch a burglar who broke into Vianney High School early Sunday morning.  Police say a man used a BB or pellet gun to break a door window to get inside about 2 a.m.  

   Police say he pulled on a mask after getting inside and tried to enter several classrooms.  But he was caught on camera, both inside and outside the building.  

   Police say the suspect approached and left the school on foot via Maryhurst Drive.  

   He's described as a white male, 18-25 years old, wearing a blue T-shirt with chest emblem, two tone knit hat, blue jeans, and black shoes.  

   Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Tim Brand at 314-984-6903 or the Kirkwood Police Department at 314-822-5858. 

 

IL Medicaid cleanup yielding lower-than-hoped savings

Wednesday, 18 September 2013 00:02 Published in Local News

   CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois officials say the state saved about $44 million in five months because of a vendor's work to scrub unentitled Illinois residents from the Medicaid rolls. Department of Healthcare and Family Services Director Julie Hamos detailed the savings Tuesday at a legislative hearing in Chicago.

   The work by Reston, Va.-based Maximus resulted in the state canceling Medicaid for more than 125,000 people. Outsourcing that task will cost the state about $70 million over two years.

   Hamos says 40 percent of the people kicked off Medicaid had no medical costs in the past six months, resulting in lower than projected savings.

   She says Illinois officials still would like to complete the contract with Maximus and will appeal an arbitrator's ruling that would require the contract to be canceled Dec. 31.

 

TX Gov. Perry heading back to Missouri

Tuesday, 17 September 2013 04:27 Published in Local News

   Texas Governor Rick Perry will be back in Missouri at the end of the month.  

   Perry had created a buzz earlier this summer with an ad campaign that attempted to lure businesses away from Missouri.  He visited the state to lobby, unsuccessfully, for an override of Governor Nixon's tax cut veto.  

   Perry, fellow former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, and anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist will all address the Conservative Political Action Conference, or "CPAC" gathering St. Louis.  The regional convention of the American Conservative Union is a showcase for the conservative political movement.

   Other confirmed participants include Missouri's junior Senator Roy Blunt and Kansas Governor Sam Brownback.
