U.S. Census Bureau Issues Report on Health Insurance Coverage in 2013

The U.S. Census Bureau recently released its report, Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2013. While previous reports often compared statistics from prior years, this report includes a "complete redesign of the health insurance questions," so caution is recommended when comparing figures from the 2013 report to estimates from prior years.

Amherst Police Looking for Suspects in Home Invasion


AMHERST, NY- Amherst police are looking for the three suspects who they say broke into a home and tied up the victim early Thursday morning.

Police say the three black men, wearing dark clothing, broke in through the side entrance of a home on Klein Road in Amherst just after midnight.

Before the men broke in, the victim was home by herself. During the incident, the victim suffered some cuts and bruises.

According to police, the men taped the hands and feet of the 70-year-old female victim, stole about $1,000 in jewelry, and then drove off. Police say the suspects may be driving an older model, maroon colored vehicle.

"It's a horrible crime that happened in our town and we're doing everything in our power to bring them into custody," said assistant chief Charles Cohen of the Amherst Police Department.

I'm looking to buy a home. What are some common mortgage mistakes to avoid?

Navigating the complex world of mortgages can be difficult. As a result, it's easy to make mistakes when applying for a mortgage loan.

Here are some common mortgage mistakes you should try to avoid:

·         Taking on a mortgage that is too big for you to handle. The mortgage you are qualified or preapproved for isn't necessarily how much you can afford. Be sure to examine your budget and lifestyle to make sure that your mortgage payment--including any extras, such as mortgage insurance--is within your means.

·         Neglecting to read the fine print. Before you sign any paperwork, make sure that you fully understand the terms of your mortgage loan and the costs associated with it. For example, are you are applying for an adjustable-rate mortgage? If so, it's important to be aware of how and when the interest rate for the loan will adjust.
