It's Monday, which means that the local news sites won't contain any current news until around noontime. Here's what I could dig up.
A- Herald: Morin.
B- Sun-Sentinel: Florida, still waiting to join the modern world.
A recent study by the Pew Center for the States found that only 23.5 percent of Medicaid-enrolled children, age 18 and under, received any sort of dental care in 2008, the most recent year for which federal data were available. (In Idaho, the top-ranked state, 61 percent of eligible children saw a dentist.)C- CBS4: Thanks, Apple!
In a separate 2010 study, the center gave Florida an "F" grade for failing to enact stronger policies to improve access to dental care for disadvantaged children.
The state has struggled with the problem of access to dental care for more than a decade.
In 2000, a federal General Accounting Office review of dental disease among low-income groups found that only 11 percent of Florida adults on Medicaid made a yearly trip to the dentist.
Florida's essential problem: too few dentists are willing to treat low-income patients.
That's because they say the Medicaid reimbursement rates, fixed by the state Legislature, are woefully inadequate.
A break in the case came after a security camera captured two men in a silver colored Jeep pulling into the parking lot of the Fish House in Key Largo on April 2nd. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said one of the men, Ovalle, is then seen breaking a window in another vehicle, reaching inside and removing a black case with a laptop computer and several other items inside, including an IPhone. Investigators made note of the extensive tattoos on his arm.D- CBS4: Just when you thought the tourists had thinned out.
Investigators said the victim had an application on her IPhone which tracks the phone. Using the app they were able to track the phone to a Homestead trailer park where it showed the phone to be in a back bedroom. Detectives went to the trailer and knocked on the door. The woman who answered said the bedroom at the back belonged to her son, Fernando Ovalle. She said he wasn’t home, and she would not tell detectives where he was.
They discovered, through investigations, that Ovalle drives a silver colored jeep. Pictures on Ovalle’s MySpace page show extensive tattoos on his arm matching those on the surveillance tape.
