In a move to keep Vermont tax dollars at work, the State Treasurer s Office has announced plans to make millions of dollars in short-term deposits available to area banks as a source of working capital. By utilizing a federal program designed to promote liquidity in the national economy, these deposits by the State will be fully guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or FDIC.In October, the FDIC created the Transaction Account Guarantee Program (TAGP). The program allows participating financial institutions to provide customers with full coverage on specific types of transaction accounts. The FDIC hopes such guarantees will encourage more deposits and help increase the amount of funds available for lending to consumers and businesses. The money available for deposit is from the State of Vermont s short-term operating fund funds that vary depending on the financial needs of the State, said State Treasurer Jeb Spaulding. By utilizing the FDIC program, we can provide area banks with the opportunity to put this money to work for their customers and at the same time allow us to earn interest on the funds in a secure environment.In April, the Treasurer s Office made available more than $13 million in deposits. Those deposits will be withdrawn by the end of the month. The FDIC program offering full coverage is in effect through December 31, 2009. My hope is that we will have funds to deposit again in this type of account later this year. Programs like this can help insured banks increase their lending to consumers and businesses and help support our Vermont economy, said Spaulding.Banks eligible to accept the deposits must certify they are participating in the TAGP and be based in or have branch operations located in Vermont. To date, three banks have expressed interest in the program. They are Citizens Bank, Connecticut River Bank N.A., and KeyBank.Banks interested in participating in the program should contact the Treasury Operations Division of the State Treasurer s Office at (802) 828-2301 or toll-free in Vermont at (800) 642-3191.Source: Vermont Treasurer’s Office
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Three Long Island medics were among 13 suspects arrested Friday for alleged roles in a scheme to bilk Medicaid and Medicare by having patients undergo unnecessary tests in exchange for painkillers, authorities said.Valley Stream residents Dr. Paul McClung and Reynat Glaz, a physical therapist, as well as Marie Nazaire, a physician assistant from Melville, were among those charged in a pair of federal indictments, authorities said. The arrests stemmed from a probe of three Brooklyn-based pill mills—doctors’ offices that overlook patients’ signs of addictions when prescribing painkillers.“Prescriptions for oxycodone were treated as a commodity and patients were a means to an end—the end being money,” said Bridget Brennan, New York City’s Special Narcotics Prosecutor. “Patients endured unnecessary procedures knowing they would receive a monthly prescription for the most sought after narcotic on the black market. The fusion of pill mill and Medicaid mill harmed countless people throughout the region.”Prosecutors said the 13 suspects are facing a combined 477 charges, including conspiracy, criminal sale of a prescription for a controlled substance, health care fraud, falsifying business records, money laundering and scheme to defraud by unlawfully selling prescriptions.Their arrests were the result of a joint investigation between the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), New York State authorities, Nassau County police, Suffolk County police, Port Washington village police and Rockville Centre village police. Officials dubbed the four-year investigation “Operation Avalanche.”The case began to unravel when agents in the DEA’s Long Island District Office identified a group of so-called doctor shoppers—people that rack up prescriptions for painkiller that they then abuse or sell—who frequented two Brooklyn clinics, authorities said.The DEA estimated that six million Oxycodone that the doctor shoppers got from the pill mills were sold on the black market, where they are believed to have a combined street value of up to $100 million. In return for the tests that the pill mills required the doctor shoppers to take, the clinics received $24.6 million in Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements, authorities said.The alleged ringleader, Dr. Lazar Feygin, hired McClung and others in 2012 to orchestrate the pills-for-tests scheme, but the following year McClung and others opened their own practice, where they replicated the conspiracy, authorities said. Nazaire and Glaz also worked for Feygin, where they allegedly had supporting roles in the scam.

Portmore United FC are ready and willing to play the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) final against Montego Bay United (MBU)FC in St James on Sunday at 4 p.m. “We won’t mind taking the trophy if they (MBU) are not there; however, the fans will be cheated,” Andre Waugh, technical director of five-time national champions Portmore United told the RSPL weekly press conference at the Red Stripe Hospitality Lounge yesterday morning. MBU failed to send any representative as they continued their protest against the move by the Professional Football Association of Jamaica (PFAJ) decision to stage the final at 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 1 at the Montego Bay Sports Complex, St James. Waugh said MBU’s absence from the press conference is an issue for that club. “We won’t be caught up. We will remain focused on the game,” he stated. Portmore have beaten MBU the three times that the teams have met in the RSPL preliminary stage this season, but Waugh is not taking his opponents lightly. “We have beaten them three times this season, but we won’t be complacent. We want to go all the way by adding the title to the regular season trophy we won for ending on most points.” The Portmore technical director added that he expects MBU to show for the final. “We expect MoBay to turn up, so we will go there to win,” he pointed out. BIG LOSS Portmore United will be without inspirational captain Omar Daley for Sunday’s game, and Waugh admitted that it is a big loss. “Omar Daley is out for the final because of an injury. His absence will be a big loss as he is a good leader, on and off the field,” the Portmore technical director said. He added that he had no problems with the decision to play the match in Montego Bay. “Once the decision was made, we worked with it and we have no problem with the venue and time of the game. We have no fear,” Waugh, who is also physical trainer for the Jamaica national senior team, said. Promoted Portmore United returned to the RSPL after being demoted two seasons ago. Last season, they captured the St Catherine FA Major League and knockout titles. They then won the South Central Confederation Super League and went into the Jamaica Football Federation premier league qualification play-offs and came out on top ahead of the University of the West Indies FC.
