Two Delaware County jail employees have been suspended after a prisoner was prematurely released last week when they failed to finish reading the bail conditions for the inmate, officials said. At least seven inmates at the George Hill Correctional Facility in Thornbury Township have been mistakenly released this year through paperwork errors or confusion over identities. Officials have acknowledged problems with procedures and paperwork. Christianus Felten, 42, of Upper Darby, is again behind bars after spending a night out. Felten, in jail awaiting trial in an alleged burglary, was approved for electronic home-monitoring after his bail was reduced at a preliminary hearing Dec. 7, according to Robert DiOrio, solicitor for the Delaware County Prison Board.

Bodyguard overtime has been a hot-button issue in cash-strapped Camden ever since former Mayor Milton Milan's bodyguards, Miguel Torres and Pierre Robinson, racked up thousands of dollars in overtime.

KHELI Muhammad was trying to schedule a routine pediatrician's appointment last summer when she discovered that her 2-year-old son, who has a congenital heart disorder, had been kicked off the Medicaid rolls. The 30-year-old mother of two boys was stunned. "It is written in stone that he's covered," Muhammad said of Samad, who qualifies for Medicaid based on his serious medical condition, not the family's income level. "He's pacemaker-dependent . . . [H]is heart will not beat without a pacemaker.

The paperwork required to obtain insurance and Medicare benefits has grown so complex over the years that many of those who have to rely on the coverage simply give up before they start. "They're buffaloed by the towering pile of forms filed with legalese and questions that don't seem to make sense," said Eleanor Davis, a volunteer who works with veterans organizations in filing claims for members. Federal aides estimate that as many as a third of those entitled to benefits never seek them and an even higher percentage fail to appeal when applications are rejected.

The Pennsylvania Office of the Auditor General has cut a check to the Borough of North Wales for the state's contribution to the borough's pension plans. Much to the surprise of Borough Council and members of the Police Department, it was for $6,315. They had been expecting almost $40,000.
