New law gives thousands of dollars to treat autism, related disorders

Stephanie Sanchez / Cronkite News Service
FACE OF AUTISM: Steven Ugol plays with autism therapist Kelley Land on Friday at his Scottsdale home, the day Gov. Janet Napolitano signed a bill that will require health plans to cover autism treatment. The measure is nicknamed “Steven’s Law” after Steven, who has autism and benefited from treatment.

Autism disorders may no longer lead to overwhelming out-of-pocket expenses after the passage of Steven's Law by the state Legislature last week.

Opinions: Game time

Today marks the second day of A-Week, the school-spirit-laden week of events and entertainment put on by the Programming and Activities Board.

However, like us, you might be planning to boycott the week because of its false advertising of "seven days of free events" when in reality, it only has only six days planned.

What is the mysterious seventh day of nothingness? What are they plotting? We don't know about that, but what we do know is that PAB is hiding something. You better believe we're on to them.

Opinions: Get jobs, homeless people

OGINO: Homeless people have the easiest gig on the planet. Sit there and beg, stand up and beg, follow someone for a few steps and beg.

But what do homeless people do to earn my money and pity? I go to work five days a week to earn a paycheck. Does a homeless person clock in to take your hard-earned coins? Those dimes and nickels could be used to do your laundry, buy a soda or play "Dance Dance Revolution."
