LATEST: Nine-yr-old boy shot in north city

Wednesday, 10 July 2013 04:40 Published in Local News

A nine-year-old boy continues to fight for his life after being shot in the head overnight.  

St. Louis Police say the child was riding in a car with his father and two other men, an 18-year-old and a 22-year-old. They were travelling on Goodfellow near Lillian Avenue around 3:30am Wednesday when the boy was hit. 

They took the child to a nearby police station for help where he was rushed to St. Louis Children's Hospital. Police tell KTRS news no one else was hurt.  

Goodfellow was closed Wednesday morning between Lillian and Sherry Avenues while police investigated.

 

Panera pulls "pay-as-you-want" campaign

Wednesday, 10 July 2013 04:29 Published in Local News

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - Panera Bread's latest pay-what-you-can experiment will be retooled and brought back next winter as a seasonal offering.

   The Meal of Shared Responsibility was pulled Wednesday.

   Since March, Panera had offered a single menu item, Turkey Chili in a Bread Bowl, at its 48 St. Louis-area restaurants.

   Customers set their own price.

   The idea was that the needy could get a nutritious meal for whatever they could pay; those paying above cost make up the difference.

   Panera founder Ron Shaich told The Associated Press that too few needy people were participating, in part because most Panera locations are in middle-class and affluent areas.

   And after initial publicity and marketing, awareness dropped off.

   Shaich believes a better plan is to offer the program for short periods, when in-store marketing can remain focused.

 

   MARYVILLE, Ill. (AP) - U.S. Rep. John Shimkus' office says doctors performed two medical procedures on his heart after he noticed his heart was beating with an abnormal rhythm.

   The Republican congressman's office say doctors in St. Louis earlier Tuesday performed an electrophysiology test and a procedure known as an ablation. An ablation is a non-surgical procedure used to correct an abnormal heart beat.

   Shimkus' office says doctors expect him to make a full recovery.

   Shimkus is at home in Collinsville and will miss all House of Representatives votes this week. He plans to return to a normal work schedule the week of July 15.

   The 55 year old Shimkus represents Illinois 15th Congressional District. He's been a member of Congress since 1997.
