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.

Navy seeks more sexual assault survey responses

Saturday, 21 December 2013 08:13 Published in National News

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Participation is lagging in an anonymous survey geared to learning how big of a problem sexual assault is in the Navy and Marines.

The Navy said earlier this month that it had only received about half as many responses as it did to its last survey, conducted in 2011. The current online survey opened on Oct. 15 and closes Jan. 6.

Getting sailors to voluntarily fill out the surveys is important to determine how wide a discrepancy there is between the number of sexual assaults that occur and those that are officially reported.

The Navy says that in the 2012 fiscal year, more than 10,000 sailors reported that they were victims of unwanted sexual assault. But only 700 formal complaints were filed.
