San Benito man accused of stealing thousands from Los Fresnos dentist

Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio said investigators arrested Francisco Hernandez-Limon on Wednesday on Rio Hondo Independent School District property.

According to the district’s website, Hernandez-Limon worked as a bookkeeper.

The allegations, however, stem from when Hernandez-Limon worked at Los Fresnos Family Dentistry.

In June 2016, Lucio said that office’s owner contacted him to file a report about $48,000 that was missing from the books.

Investigators later discovered a total of $308,000 that was missing and accuse Hernandez-Limon of stealing it through various methods.

“He found different means to go ahead and take money,” Lucio said at a Thursday news conference.

Hernandez-Limon took cash from Los Fresnos Family Dentistry, forged checks, used the company credit card to charge personal items and gave himself unauthorized bonuses, Lucio explained.

“It didn’t happen overnight,” Lucio said of the allegations.

As far as recovering the stolen money, Lucio said a court may take up restitution and the victim can always try to recover damages through the civil process. Hernandez-Limon was arraigned at 2 p.m. Thursday on a charge of misapplication of fiduciary property.

Lucio said the suspect, if convicted, could be sentenced up to 99 years in prison, but not less than five years, and also face a $10,000 fine.

In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the increasing number of cosmetic dentistry and orthodontic treatments as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global dental implants market:

Increasing number of cosmetic dentistry and orthodontic treatments

Dental aesthetics emphasize on enhancing the dental and facial appearance through cosmetic treatments. Cosmetic dentistry procedures are used in dental diseases such dental caries and periodontal diseases as well as for tooth whitening and bleaching that improves the color of the teeth. The use of CAD/CAM systems has improved the accuracy of these procedures. 3D technology is being extensively used to design and develop dental prosthesis and dental impressions.

Dental clinics and dental implant vendors use various marketing strategies that help to create customer interest. The awareness levels about cosmetic dentistry are high in developed and developing countries. Therefore, many people in these countries are choosing dental implants to avoid social stigma and to improve appearance. The availability of advanced dental implants, the presence of prosthetic products such as dental crowns, the increasing investments in R&D for the development of dental implants, and the presence of many dentists and dental care professionals skilled in cosmetic dentistry procedures will drive the growth of the global dental implants market.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for in-vitro diagnostics, “In most of the developing and underdeveloped countries, including the countries in Africa, the lack of awareness about dental hygiene is leading to periodontal diseases. Periodontal diseases are associated with tooth loss. Tooth loss can also be caused by age-related degenerative changes in the geriatric population. The increasing edentulous population because of dental diseases and age-related dental conditions will increase the demand for dental implants during the forecast period. Dental implants are essential for the fitment of dental prostheses such as crowns and bridges.”

The increasing number of public and private dental clinics and the growing governmental support in developed countries such as Canada, Japan, the US, and the UK and a few developing countries such as China have increased the number of prosthetic implantations and cosmetic dentistry procedures.

These clinics are expected to increase the adoption of dental implants through their specialized services.

Girl Scout makes scrapbooks for seniors

She watched her grandmother struggle with lung cancer and saw how she cherished a scrapbook she made for her.

When Hannah Heilman, a junior at Greenwood Community High School, was pursuing a project idea to earn the coveted and highest award in Girl Scouts, she decided to make scrapbooks for dementia and Alzheimer’s patients at Greenwood Village South. She presented the residents with their scrapbooks in February.

She spent nearly 150 hours piecing together the books for 15 residents and put in extra pages for them and their families to fill in their own memories.

Anything the residents did in their lives was eligible for the scrapbook, and Heilman worked with each of the families to figure out what should be included. Family members provided written descriptions of memorable things they had done, such as taking vacations, favorite hobbies and favorite foods.

Hannah Heilman, a junior at Greenwood Community High School, goes over the scrapbook she made with Rose Martlage-Henneke, a resident at Greenwood Village South. Heilmade scrapbooks for 15 residents at the retirement community to help them remember their lives.

The intent was to allow residents struggling with diseases that caused memory loss to connect with their memories and to give staff a way to get to know the patients better, said Suzy Heilman, Hannah’s mother.

“My heart was touched. It was so incredible to see how much I was able to touch these residents’ lives,” she said.

Residents cried happy tears when she presented them; one nonverbal resident mouthed “thank you.” The residents now have scrapbooks of their families that some told Heilman they would treasure forever, Hannah Heilman said.

“Many tears and hugs followed as they went through the books together, page by page. The looks of joy on their faces were priceless,” Suzy Heilman said.

Hannah’s project started a few years ago when her grandmother, Pat, was dying of lung cancer.

She decided she wanted to make a scrapbook of her grandmother’s life. The scrapbook has since become a family memento, with family members thumbing through it and friends looking through it at Pat’s funeral, Suzy Heilman said.

“This was a very touching gift from her heart as she and Pat went thru the pages together. That book was looked through many times by other family members during Pat’s time in hospice and then later by Pat’s friends at her funeral,” she said.

When Hannah needed a Gold Scout project, she said she wanted to give some of that same joy to residents of Greenwood Village South.

“The project had a huge impact on my life and was eye-opening,” she said. “I learned so much about each person’s life. It was crazy to see this long life that each person lived, which was unique to themselves.”

Future residents also will be able to have scrapbooks, as Heilman will collect surveys that families fill out and will make scrapbooks for them as well.

What is Colorado State looking for in its next men’s basketball head coach?

Athletic director Joe Parker said he will use a search firm to find Larry Eustachy’s replacement and hopes to make hire within 30 days

FORT COLLINS — Larry Eustachy’s career at Colorado State didn’t end well, but it doesn’t seem to have negatively affected the way potential replacements are viewing the job.

"What I’m encouraged by is the outreach that we’ve seen and the number of people who have expressed interest in this job is, not overwhelming, but it illustrates to me we have a very good opportunity," CSU athletic director Joe Parker said Friday as he discussed the end of Eustachy’s time in Fort Collins before looking ahead to the future.

Parker said he’d like to make the hire within 30 days, that he will use a search firm and will take advice from a small advisory committee, although he’s not sure yet just how much that committee will be involved in the process.

Eustachy was one of the 10 highest-paid coaches in the Group of Five conferences, set to make more than $1 million next year before resigning last Monday. His replacement likely won’t make nearly that much.

"I don’t know that we need to be at that level again," Parker said, adding that the average head coach in the Mountain West makes about $600,000 a year. "I think we may have an opportunity to economize a little bit there. If you look at the salary pool for our assistant coaches, I believe it still is the highest in the Mountain West. I think that’s important to give them that pool to resource themselves the right way and get them the right level of coaching talent around them."

Talk of CSU women’s basketball legend Becky Hammon, an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs, taking the job has swelled since it became clear Eustachy was on his way out. Sources have told the Reporter-Herald Hammon doesn’t have a great relationship with Colorado State and her coming back to coach the men’s program in Fort Collins is highly unlikely.

When asked if he was open to a female candidate, Parker smiled and said: "I’ve thought a lot about that. The most frequently recommended candidate probably. I’m not closing the door on any thought at this time."

Other possible candidates include:

• South Dakota head coach Craig Smith, a former CSU assistant under Tim Miles.

• Drake head coach Niko Medved, a former CSU assistant under Tim Miles.

• Oklahoma assistant Chris Crutchfield, whose athletic director at OU, Joe Castiglione, has a close relationship with Parker.

• Utah assistant DeMarlo Slocum, a former CSU assistant under Tim Miles.

• Weber State head coach Randy Rahe, a former CSU assistant under Stew Morrill.

• East Tennessee State head coach Steve Forbes.

• Northern Colorado head coach Jeff Linder, a former Boise State assistant.

Parker said a previous connection to Colorado State is a plus but not a requirement.

"If our fan base had some familiarity with the person, I think that helps initially gain some traction within the community," he said. "I don’t think it’s a necessary requirement, but it’s one that if we can marry it with all the other things we want in this coaching role, I think it’s a plus."

Parker also said he met with the basketball team Friday to get feedback from players on what they want out of CSU’s next head coach.

"They want someone that is an experienced winner. They want someone who can identify talent. That’s something that was clear," Parker said. "They want a coach that invests in the relationship the coach has with the players. They want someone that holds them accountable.

"They want someone who can help them perhaps make the next step in their career if they continue to play basketball through the relationships that coach may have."

The athletic director also said players expressed a desire for a coach who has a balanced philosophy and isn’t just about defense. In terms of what he’s looking for specifically, Parker said he prefers someone who played the game collegiately and who grew up with a parent or family member who coached.

Colorado sweeps UCLA behind Collier’s 19 points

BOULDER, Colo. — Dominique Collier celebrated Senior Day with a season-high 19 points and Colorado beat UCLA 80-76 Sunday for its first-ever season sweep of the Bruins.

Colorado (16-13, 8-9 Pac-12) took a nine-point lead into the locker room at halftime but came out cold in the second half, missed 14 of 18 shots and watched the Bruins (19-10, 10-7) roar back behind Aaron Holiday (21 points) and Kris Wilkes, who finished with 20 points.

UCLA went ahead 56-54 on Alex Olesinski’s basket with 8:41 remaining, but the Bruins wouldn’t score again until Wilkes’ jam with just under four minutes left after the Buffaloes had surged to a 71-57 lead.

The Bruins had one last run left in them and cut Colorado’s lead to 77-73 on Holiday’s layup with 40 seconds left. Holiday sank a deep 3 to make it 80-76 with 15 seconds left.

George King added 16 points for Colorado and Lucas Siewert had 15.

Both teams sank 14 3-pointers, the Bruins in 31 attempts and the Buffs in 30. Namon Wright’s 3 at the buzzer gave Colorado a 45-36 halftime lead.


UCLA: The Bruins failed to join USC and Arizona in the 20-win club and were swept by Colorado for the first time since the Buffaloes joined the Pac-12 in 2011. The Bruins are heading in the wrong direction down the stretch. After winning six of their previous seven, they lost both games on this trip. They also lost at Utah 84-78 on Thursday night.

Colorado: The Buffaloes’ only conference win on the road came against UCLA at Pauley Pavilion on Jan. 13, when they won 68-59. They’re now 4-11 against the Bruins, but 3-3 at home. Colorado coach Tad Boyle improved to 3-7 against UCLA while Bruins coach Steve Alford fell to 5-3 versus Colorado.


UCLA: The Bruins visit archrival USC next Saturday night before heading off to the Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas. UCLA edged the Trojans 82-79 in a thriller on Feb. 2.

Colorado: The Buffs wrap up the regular season at Utah on Saturday. Colorado beat the Utes 67-55 in Boulder on Feb. 2.
