WAFF - Alabama may just be the worst state in America to lose a limb on the job when it comes to worker’s compensation. Everything down to our toes has a price but workers in our state have a much different experience than those in other states in claiming their benefits. Workers compensation is not a foreign concept. But here in Alabama, it’s an especially touchy subject. While employers are familiar with state policies, the average worker does not know what to expect until something horrible happens.

The Star Tribune - State regulators have suspended the license of an Edina dentist whose teenage patient died last June after a procedure to have her wisdom teeth removed. Sydney Galleger, a junior at Eden Prairie High School, went into convulsions during the June 9 surgery and was rushed to a hospital, where she died. The Minnesota Board of Dentistry cited "imminent risk of harm" in its order against Dr. Paul Tompach of Edina Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The order said the board "received credible information" that Tompach "failed to appropriately manage a medical emergency, and enabled medical personnel (i.e., an unlicensed dental assistant, licensed dental assistant, and student intern) to perform tasks which exceeded the legal scope of practice."

CBS - Police are investigating a brazen burglary at Barsky Diamonds in Center City that was all caught on surveillance cameras. “I had a bunch of trays of diamond earrings down here and they took them all,” says owner Nathan Barsky. When the store closes, so does the security gate. It’s supposed to guard the gems inside. But Barsky says early on the morning of February 13, thieves hot-wired it open. Once that gate was up, the thieves had to get through the door. But the glass has been treated so it can’t be broken. So the burglars had to jimmy the locks.
