Submitted photo Moncriffe said that since the shooting his client is taking some antidepressants, but not any psychotropic drugs. The victim's family filled the jury box to witness the guilty plea. Her mother, Linda Golden , said during an interview on the courthouse steps afterward that she had not heard any apologies from McClain, but she understood that the defendant's mother and three children were suffering, too. Children miss mother Golden spoke in a strong voice until she talked about how much her grandchildren miss their mother. "Her 6-year-old screams out her name, cries, and says he misses and loves her so much. Her 3-year-old sees her picture and says, 'That's my Mommy when is she coming home?' The baby will never know his mother," she said, her eyes filling with tears. On the day of the shooting, Schuchardt had taken her baby to the pediatric center for a checkup. McClain was waiting in the parking lot with a handgun and shot her several times, authorities said. Despite her wounds, she tried to save her baby from McClain, investigators said. McClain struck the dying mother with her car as Schuchardt reached into the Lexus screaming, "My baby!" She was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital in The Woodlands, where she died. The baby was found unharmed hours later with McClain's sister.

She was knocked over and trampled, suffering two broken arms, a fractured collarbone, a broken jaw and several fractured ribs.

Any of the School Nurse Organization of Minnesotas 350 members are eligible for the Nurse of the Year or Administrator of the Year awards. To win, members are nominated and evaluated under a seven-part rubric. The award really could go to anybody we have so many great nurses, Whittet said of District 11 coding salary staff.

Kia Nurse Commits To UConn

Court papers said prescriptions were also written in the names of Bernie Fine's wife, Laurie Fine; a second daughter, Sheila Fine, 24; and son-inlaw, Quint Streeter, 26, without proper authorization. The Fines were among seven people listed in the state case as having received prescriptions for oxycodone and hydrocodone from Havens. Court records don't show that the state charges have been resolved. Havens' lawyer, Patricia Campbell, and First Chief Assistant District Attorney Rick Trunfio did not return phone messages. The prosecutor in the federal case, Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Spina, said he was unaware of the status of the state court charges. A written settlement of the federal case says that Havens prescribed 36 medications to people who were not her patients "without a medical purpose and outside the usual scope of her professional practice" between Jan. 1, 2012, and June 21, 2012. Havens was not admitting to any wrongdoing by signing the agreement, the document says. She surrendered her registration number with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in July 2012, according to the agreement.

Rousseaus windfall, though large for bingo, was a fraction of the winnings the casino paid out in October, which totaled nearly $30 million, according to Ciara Green, a spokeswoman for the casino. Winning $54,000 at bingo is raretypical windfalls in bingo are usually from several hundred to several thousand dollars, Green said. Pechanga Bingo is unique in Southern California because players can win the progressive amounts without additional buy-ins or bets, Green said. Each player automatically gets a shot at winning one of five multi-progressive bingo jackpots, which are classified by color, red, green, blue, yellow and purple. A player wins the progressive amount when he gets a bingo and also has five number boxes in a straight line appearing as the same color.

Merrilie Rousseau, a nurse from San Marcos, won $54,000 playing bingo at Pechanga casino in Temecula. The Lady Lions and Huskies were her final two schools, although Indiana was still in the running at the end. Nurse canceled scheduled visits to Kentucky and Tennessee. Nurse visited UConn as late as earlier this month, and from all indications, that is when she grew to really love the program. The Huskies (4-0), who play Oregon on Wednesday at the XL Center , are still waiting to hear from 6-4 center/forward A'ja Wilson of South Carolina, considered the top unsigned player in the United States. Wilson reportedly is deciding between South Carolina and UConn. The end of the fall signing period is Wednesday. Nurse, the youngest member of the Canadian national team, is the niece of former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb and his wife, Raquel, a former Syracuse basketball player. Nurse helped Canada earn a silver medal at the FIBA Americas World Championships in Xalapa, Mexico.
