   The impacts of the federal shutdown on the local St. Louis economy probably won't amount to much -- as long as it doesn't last long.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that economists and business leaders generally agree that a few days of federal worker furloughs and closed federal parks won't have a big impact.  But with about 25,000 St. Louis area residents working for the federal government, and many thousands more working for private companies that rely on federal contracts, a long-term shutdown could have greater impact.  

   Right now, the paper reports that private employers like Boeing and Unisys aren't changing staffing levels, but all say they are monitoring the situation.

2 people struck and killed on I-70; Eastbound lanes closed

Wednesday, 02 October 2013 00:09 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Authorities continue to investigate two separate incidents in north St. Louis in which pedestrians were struck and killed by vehicles.

 

   The first happened just before 10 p.m. Tuesday when a person was struck on eastbound Interstate 70 near Salisbury Street. Lanes in both directions were closed for several hours after the accident. Police say the driver who struck the pedestrian was found. It wasn't clear if the driver would face charges.

 

   In the second case, a man was struck by two cars as he was crossing Natural Bridge Avenue near Kingshighway just before midnight Tuesday. The drivers stopped and cooperated with authorities.

 

   Names of the victims have not been released.

Online health insurance exchanges now open

Tuesday, 01 October 2013 03:36 Published in Health & Fitness

   The online health insurance exchanges are now open in both Missouri and Illinois.  The online marketplace is a key component of the federal health care law.  

   Illinois officials have set up their own marketplace at GetCoveredIllinois.gov.  

   Missouri voters chose to bar their government from setting up its own marketplace.  So the federal government is running the exchange for Missouri residents at Healthcare.gov.

   Consumers have until December 15th to sign up if they want coverage to start on January 1, but enrollment is open until March 31.
