The Knoxville High School was a sea of pink this past Saturday as it hosted the 10th annual Coaches vs. Cancer fundraising event.  The event began in the morning and featured alumni basketball games, a silent auction and a survivor’s ceremony held between the varsity basketball games with Chariton. During the survivors ceremony, organizers of the Knoxville Cancer Relay donated a large check to Coaches vs Cancer which totaled a stunning $23,501.67  With the donations from Saturday, the Knoxville Coaches vs Cancer event looks to easily hit its goal of $57,000, which would top over $500,000 donated in the past ten years.

An Ottumwa non-profit serving people with disabilities says it is being crushed by the privitization of Medicaid.  Tenco Industries serves over 300 people with disabilities in the Ottumwa area; Dr. Kent Walker, a physician and Tenco board member, said when the state ran the Medicaid program, only 10 percent of their claims were rejected.  Under the new system, only 50% of claims for December have been processed, and 90% of those processed have been rejected.  Governor Kim Reynolds has promised Tenco she is personally working to fix the problem for the organization and overhaul the process in general.
