    LACEY, Wash. -- A family is outraged that their $30 bounced check for school lunches has exploded into an $800 charge. A giant lunch bill has left a bad taste with Dr. Christina Johnson-Conley. Her two children attend North Thurston High School in Lacey and eat lunch there every day. But last year the family bounced a $30 lunch payment check. They just found out that their wages were garnished nearly $800. "I support our school district, but not in this way," said Johnson-Conley. The North thurston school district said it had no choice but to do everything to collect...

    That amount – $328 per month – is the national average for the mid-tier “silver” premium based on HHS calculations for approved plans in 48 states. The challenge, of course, is that like all of healthcare itself, your mileage will vary. Both individual and family insurance rates will vary dramatically based on a host of variables. Those variables – age, marital status, geographic location and income – will each have a significant impact on the final monthly amount. The most difficult single component in the equation is income – which determines the amount of Federal subsidy any given taxpayer will...

    Almost every state in the U.S. has made cuts to its public-employee pensions, seeking to dig out from the economic downturn, but so far the measures have fallen well short of bridging a nearly $1 trillion funding gap. Since 2009, 45 states have rolled back pension benefits for teachers, police, firefighters and other public workers, including cuts by Michigan and California this month. Next week, Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich is expected to sign legislation requiring, for example, that certain teachers work longer and pay more toward their pensions.

    As red-light enforcement cameras start taking money shots at 10 city intersections today, police are warning that it's illegal to try and thwart the technology. Starting today, owners of vehicles the cameras catch running red lights will receive $75 civil fines. The cameras photograph rear license plates, and citations are mailed to registered vehicle owners. Officials are cautioning drivers not to use clear sprays and license-plate covers advertised as preventing cameras from taking readable images of plate numbers. "It's against the law," said Executive Assistant Chief of Police Martha Montalvo, who oversees the camera program. Most of the stealth products...

    SCO to send out Linux invoices By Stephen Shankland Staff Writer, CNET September 2, 2003, 5:54 PM PT The SCO Group is turning up the heat in its attempt to impose Unix license fees for Linux use: It plans to begin sending invoices to companies before the month is out. The Lindon, Utah-based company announced in August that it wants corporations to buy Unix licenses for using the similar Linux operating system, asking $699 for a single-processor Linux server. But Tuesday, SCO spokesman Blake Stowell said the company will begin the more active approach of sending invoices requesting payment...
