Mrs. J. A. Davis
Mrs. J. A. Davis has been quite sick
for several days of pneumonia at her home at the corner
of Fulton and Sixth streets. Her condition yesterday
afternoon became so serious that it was thought that she
could not live through the night. Her sons, Chris, who is
a street railway conductor in St. Louis, and Al, of
Kansas City, were telegraphed for. The former arrived
this morning and the latter is expected this evening.
Mrs. Davis is reported better today.

Fraud Unit number one.
Attorney General Chris Koster
said yesterday that Missouri has earned the
distinction of obtaining more Medicaid fraud
money per grant dollar spent than any other state
in the nation. According to national data from
the federal Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS), the Attorney Generals
Medicaid Fraud Control Unit obtained $18.81 for
every federal dollar received in federal fiscal
year (FFY) 2008.
"Efficiency of government
is critical, particularly during these
challenging economic times," Koster said.
"Missouris Medicaid Fraud Unit has
used all tools available to return those stolen
health care dollars to Missouri."
The Attorney Generals
Medicaid Fraud Control Unit received a grant of
$1,582,000 from HHS in federal fiscal year 2008,
and used that funding to recover $29,753,505, for
the return rate of $18.81 per grant dollar and
the top ranking.
Koster said to increase the
programs effectiveness, the unit reaches
out to state agencies that oversee Medicaid
programs; hospitals and other large health
providers; and other states to obtain leads on
possible Medicaid fraud.

They can explain what happens from that point

the charge is there in the first place.

HERES A TIP
To make a
great place for face cloths and even books in
your bathroom, install a window box on the
inside. Find a window box that will fit on the
ledge and secure it in place. Bathroom windows
usually are small, and its a great place to
stash stuff and keep it out of the way.
restaurants have really durable kid cups that
come with a kids meal. We tend to save
these, like most parents. I have several in the
car, washed and stacked with their lids.
Ive also stashed some individually wrapped
straws with them. Whenever we go to the park, we
can pull them out and fill them at the water
fountain. Its really convenient, and we
dont feel bad if they need to get trashed
or we lose track of them." -- T.C. in Texas

finger, cut the finger off a rubber glove and
wear it. It can help to keep a slipping bandage
in place, and if you secure it with waterproof
tape, you can keep your wound dry.
love pizza, but dont like reheated pizza --
at least I didnt until I found out about
this little trick. Microwave the slice to warm.
Then slip it into a nonstick skillet to cook the
rest of the way. It takes only a few minutes, but
you end up with a crispy crust and no cheese
melting off the side (you can just flick it back
on). Its great!" -- M., via e-mail
knuckles? Its not surprising at this time
of year. Let your lip balm do double duty. Rub it
into the dry skin at your knuckles and around
your nails for some instant dry-skin relief.
