  • Waitlists ease as more doctors offer addiction treatment

    Updated: 5 hr ago

    COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) — Vermonters struggling with addiction who have had to face lengthy waitlists for treatment are getting some relief. Vermont Public Radio reports (http://bit.ly/27RCGYg ) the number of people waiting for treatment at the state's hub centers has dropped by about 100 as the number of residents in treatment has increased by several hundred. The shift comes after Gov. Peter Shumlin visited the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington and pleaded for doctors to do more. Dr. Patti Fisher says she was asked to help address the waiting list and says not many physicians were signing up to prescribe buprenorphine, also known as Suboxone, as part of addiction treatment.

    IDOMENI, Greece (AP) — It grew to the size of a small town, becoming a symbol of Europe's closed border policy for migrants and refugees. On Tuesday, Greek authorities began to dismantle it. Starting at dawn, police moved more than 2,000 people out of Idomeni, the sprawling makeshift camp on the Greek-Macedonian border, and sent in bulldozers to begin erasing the tent city. The move definitively dashed the dreams of the thousands who had camped there for months in the hope of eventually being able to reach the continent's wealthy heartland. The refugees — many from Syria and Iraq — had stubbornly resisted government efforts to leave the site voluntarily, braving torrential rainfall and winter weather.

    Updated: 5 hr ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Many of America's young adults appear to be in no hurry to move out of their old bedrooms. For the first time on record, living with parents is now the most common arrangement for people ages 18 to 34, an analysis of census data by the Pew Research Center has found. And the proportion of older millennials — those ages 25 to 34 — who are living at home has reached its highest point (19 percent) on record, Pew analysts said. Nearly one-third of all millennials live with their parents, slightly more than the proportion who live with a spouse or partner. It's the first time that living at home has outpaced living with a spouse for this age group since such record-keeping began in 1880.

    Brandy McDonnell | Updated: 6 hr ago

    Oklahoma-born and bred singer-songwriter Parker Millsap released today the playful official music video to his ballad "Pining," from his 2016 album "The Very Last Day." Directed by Matt Bizer, the video, which debuted via Rolling Stone, features the Purcell native riding a motorcycle, driving a convertible and captaining a little boat through a big storm in front of an obvious green screen. (My favorite part is him fake-steering the car with his feet while playing guitar.) At the end of all his "travels," he gets the girl, naturally. "Pining" is one of my favorite songs from "The Very Last Day," which Millsap co-produced with Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Dixie Chicks, John Prine). “He is very

    Updated: 6 hr ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — The nation seems to be kicking its smoking habit faster than ever before. The rate of smoking among adults in the U.S. fell to 15 percent last year thanks to the biggest one-year decline in more than 20 years, according to a new government report. The rate fell 2 percentage points from 2014, when about 17 percent of adults in a large national survey said they had recently smoked. The smoking rate has been falling for decades, but it usually drops only 1 point or less in a year. The last time there was a drop nearly as big was from 1992 to 1993, when the smoking rate fell 1.5 percentage points, according to Brian King of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC reported the ne

    William Crum | Updated: 7 hr ago

    May Avenue could reopen this week to limited traffic where the bridge over Northwest Expressway partially collapsed. Plans are to restore one lane of traffic northbound and one lane southbound on the western spans of the bridge. A 52-foot span on the east side fell onto Northwest Expressway last Thursday after being hit by a truck hauling construction equipment. Debris was removed in time to reopen Northwest Expressway to traffic about 8 p.m. Saturday. Oklahoma City Public Works Director Eric Wenger told the city council Tuesday that the two spans on the west side were undamaged by the accident. Lanes will have to be cut through the medians at either end to route traffic onto the undamaged

    Updated: 7 hr ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — New guidelines say weight-loss surgery should become a more routine treatment option for diabetes, even for some patients who are mildly obese. Obesity and Type 2 diabetes are a deadly pair, and numerous studies show stomach-shrinking operations can dramatically improve diabetes. But Tuesday's guidelines mark the first time the surgery is recommended specifically as a diabetes treatment rather than as obesity treatment with a side benefit, and expand the eligible candidates. The recommendations were endorsed by the American Diabetes Association, the International Diabetes Federation and 43 other health groups, and published in the journal Diabetes Care. "We do not claim that surgery should be t
