Powerball winner drawn in Missouri

Thursday, 26 December 2013 12:45 Published in Local News

It was a very Merry Christmas for one lottery player in Missouri.  The winning Powerball ticket from last night's drawing was sold in Missouri and matched all six numbers. The jackpot totaled $71.5 million. The winning numbers were: 23, 28, 38, 39, 56, and the Powerball number was 32.

Lottery officials advise that if you hold the winning ticket, be sure to sign the back and put it in a safe place until you can take it to the Missouri Lottery Headquarters in Jefferson City. 

The Missouri winner has 180 days to claim this prize, which in this case is June 23, 2014.  The winner can select to receive the jackpot prize in 30 graduated annuity payments or in one lump-sum payment worth approximately $39.8 million before taxes. 

Newborns are focus of heart disease screening

Thursday, 26 December 2013 12:33 Published in Local News

  JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri is preparing to start screening every newborn for a heart disease that can cause developmental delays or death if left untreated. The screenings for critical congenital heart disease are required under a new state law that takes effect January 1st. The Department of Health and Senior Services says an estimated 140 babies are born in Missouri each year with the disease.  The noninvasive screenings measure oxygen in the blood and show if a newborn needs treatment with a catheter or surgery.   The Missouri agency says the tests will prevent babies from being sent home with the risk of developing serious complications in the first few weeks of life.

Colborne's SO goal lifts Flames over Blues 4-3

Tuesday, 24 December 2013 00:00 Published in Sports
 
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Joe Colborne scored the only goal of the shootout to give the Calgary Flames an improbable 4-3 come-from-behind win over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.
 
Colborne took the first attempt in the shootout and beat Jaroslav Halak on a deke for his third goal on four attempts this season in the tiebreaker.
 
Reto Berra turned aside T.J. Oshie, Derek Roy and Magnus Paajarvi in the shootout to earn the win. Mark Giordano forced overtime by dramatically scoring the tying goal with five seconds left in the third period.
 
Patrick Berglund's holding penalty gave Calgary a power play with 1:37 left, and Flames coach Bob Hartley added more pop by pulling Berra for a 6-on-4 skating edge.
 
Jiri Hudler's long diagonal pass was hammered in from the faceoff dot by Giordano, who one-timed a blistering slap shot past Halak to send the sellout crowd into a frenzy.
 
Hudler and Mike Cammalleri also scored for Calgary (14-17-6), which kicked off a five-game homestand. The Flames snapped a three-game losing streak.
 
Kevin Shattenkirk, Jaden Schwartz and Paajarvi scored for the Blues (24-7-5), which took three out of four points in Alberta and are 5-1-2 in their last eight.
 
The Flames have battled injuries all season, and there were more announced on Monday. Left wing Curtis Glencross (high ankle sprain) and former Blues defenseman Kris Russell (sprained knee), will be out for an extended period after they were hurt at Pittsburgh on Saturday in the final stop of a five-game trip.
 
St. Louis scored the lone goal of the first period, just eight seconds into its first power play.
 
Off a faceoff win deep in the Flames end, the Blues worked the puck around. Brendan Morrow's nifty cross-ice backhanded pass landed on the stick of Shattenkirk, who broke in from the blue line and scored his fifth goal of the season into the open side.
 
Schwartz scored through a screen as the Blues took a 2-1 lead less than two minutes after Hudler tied it at 12:06.
 
Just 44 seconds later, the Blues increased their lead to two on a goal from their high-energy fourth line.
 
Berra's pass around the boards was intercepted by Adam Cracknell, who zipped a pass to Maxim Lapierre in the slot. Lapierre's shot was stopped, but Paajarvi corralled the rebound and stuffed in his third goal.
 
The Flames cut the deficit to 3-2 at 11:05 of the third when Paul Byron set up Cammalleri from behind the net for his team-leading 12th goal.
 
Berra made 32 saves to improve to 5-8-2. Halak stopped 26 stops and fell to 17-6-3.
 
NOTES: Glencross, who earlier missed 15 games with a knee injury, will be out for eight weeks. Russell will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks. Taking Russell's spot on the Calgary blue line was Chris Breen. ... With Alex Steen (upper body) out for the Blues, 20-year-old Dmitrij Jaskin, recalled from Chicago (AHL), made his season debut. He played alongside Oshie and David Backes. ... Only Hudler, T.J. Brodie and Chris Butler have played in each of Calgary's 37 games.
