County Health Plan Offers Coverage For Uninsured

News Photo 9/1/14 - A basic services healthcare plan is being offered to eligible Livingston County residents who for whatever reason did not sign up for the federal insurance marketplace. The Livingston Health Plan provides basic medically necessary and primary health care for the uninsured. It’s described as one time, temporary coverage for residents that fall between 138% to 200% of poverty level or around $23,400. The plan is being offered from now until the end of the year, when individuals can get signed up for open enrollment on the federal marketplace. Livingston County Department of Public Health Director Diane McCormick says the federal healthcare exchange will open up for re-enrollment November 15th and the local plan fills the gap, allowing residents to review all of the opportunities on the federal marketplace and then get signed up so it will go into effect January 1st. There is no fee associated with the Livingston Health Plan but residents will need to meet the eligibility requirements. McCormick says there are a fair number of documented foreigners from various countries throughout the world living in Livingston County. She says those individuals who are not able to sign up for the federal marketplace because they’re not US citizens are eligible to enroll in the local plan. To set up an appointment, contact the Livingston County Department of Public Health. A link is below. (JK)

23 Firefighters Complete Basic Training in Two Local Programs

News Photo 9/1/14 - After months of training as part of two local programs, 23 firefighters are moving to the next level. The Livingston County Fire Academy recently graduated 14 new firefighters as part of the Firefighter I & II Academy hosted by the Brighton Area Fire Authority, The firefighters completed a comprehensive program that included more than 300 hours of base level training as required by the state. The program included hazardous materials, incident command, firefighting, strategy, tactics, and all the baseline skills a new firefighter needs to be successful in a fire department. The firefighters in the academy were from Walled Lake, South Lyon, Brighton, Green Oak, Hartland, and White Lake. Fire Chief Michael O’Brian says the program teaches the base line skills while instilling teamwork, dedication and commitment but also demonstrating the need for collaboration with other departments. In addition to the academy, the Authority’s Emergency Medical Responder Course was able to train nine new responders from Brighton, Fenton, and Argentine in the minimum level of emergency services – a program that is said to be core for many fire departments response to vehicle accidents and medical emergencies. Both courses had a 100% pass rate. (JM)

Fowlerville Man Still Critical After I-96 Crash West of Howell

News Photo 8/31/14 - A Fowlerville man was still in critical condition Monday after a 2-vehicle crash Saturday on I-96 west of M-59. According to the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department, 53-year-old Robert Heilner was westbound on the freeway at about 6:40 a.m. when the pickup truck he was driving was rear-ended by a Toyota Avalon driven by 31-year-old Rick Wilcox of Lowell, Michigan. According to Undersheriff Mike Murphy, the GMC Sierra truck Heilner was driving rolled over several times before coming to a rest. Murphy tells WHMI that no charges have been issued yet in the accident - although it appears the Toyota driver was at fault. Westbound I-96 was shut down for four hours as a result of the accident. Heilner was airlifted by Survival Flight Helicopter to the University of Michigan Hospital, where he remained in critical condition at midday Monday.(TT)

DETROIT (AP) - The trial to determine whether bankrupt Detroit's restructuring plan will be approved is set to begin just over a year after the city sought court protection in July 2013. The confirmation trial for the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history starts Tuesday in federal court. Pensioners already have approved the settlement plan, but at least one creditor says it is discriminatory.

DETROIT (AP) - Detroit police say two teenagers and a man have died in overnight shootings. They tell WWJ-AM that a male and a female teenager were fatally shot about 3:45 a.m. yesterday on the city's west side. Police tell the Detroit News someone forced the victims from a car before shooting them. No arrests have been reported in the killings.

DETROIT (AP) - Detroit police say that a police lieutenant was injured while trying to stop a larceny suspect from fleeing. Police spokesman Sergeant Michael Woody tells WWJ-AM that police originally thought the lieutenant was hurt by a hit-and-run driver during a traffic stop, but that was incorrect. Woody says the lieutenant hurt his ankle after the suspect fled Sunday. It happened about noon on the city's west side.

MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say they're investigating the shooting of a 13-year-old boy during a football game at Muskegon High School. The Muskegon Chronicle and WOOD-TV say the shooting happened Friday night. Muskegon police are asking for help from people who can help them find out how it happened. Muskegon beat Detroit Catholic Central 21-14.
