Members of law enforcement, Child Protective Services and the Sacramento County Probation Department conducted a truancy sweep Thursday. The goal was to get children back in school.

Officials visited the homes of parents whose children haven't been showing up for school. They called it a "knock and talk." Officers warned parents that if their child continued to be truant, arrest warrants could be issued. Authorities said they are trying to make a difference.

Dustin Strout has no family. He has resided in a mental institution, two group homes, five foster homes, several friends' homes and numerous homeless shelters for nearly 20 years, but nowhere within those places did his family reside.

"I didn't want toys; I wanted family love." Strout remembers crying over not having a biological mother. "I wanted the person who gave birth to me to be there," he said. By the time Strout was 9, he had entered and left four more foster homes. "They just didn't know how to deal with me because I had so much confusion and so much anger."

No place in Maine has been harder hit by painkiller abuse than Washington County.

Maine was hit earlier and harder by prescription painkiller abuse than much of the nation. And Washington County, at its eastern tip, has been considered ground zero for painkiller abuse in Maine for the past decade, since an explosion of addiction in Down East Maine and in West Virginia earned OxyContin the nickname "hillbilly heroin."

Orange County prosecutors today declined to file criminal charges stemming from a child-neglect probe of Nadya Suleman, who became known in the media as ''Octomom'' after she gave birth to octuplets in 2009.
