St. Louis gas prices remain lower than national average

Monday, 09 December 2013 08:15 Published in Local News

Average retail gasoline prices in St. Louis have fallen 2.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.99 per gallon for regular gas on Sunday.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 0.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.24 per gallon. This is according to the gasoline price website StLouisGasPrices.com. 

Prices yesterday were 3.3 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 9.8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

The national average has increased 3.9 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 10.4 cents per gallon lower than one year ago. 

HONG KONG REPORTS 2ND H7N9 BIRD FLU CASE

Monday, 09 December 2013 07:37 Published in Health & Fitness

HONG KONG (AP) -- Hong Kong reported its second human case of H7N9 bird flu just days after the first, raising fears that the virus is spreading beyond mainland China.

The Health Department said late Friday that an 80-year-old man being treated for a chronic illness in the hospital was found to have the bird flu strain.

Authorities in the Asian financial and transport hub have been monitoring H7N9 closely since it was first identified in April. Infectious diseases are a particular concern in Hong Kong, where a decade ago the Sars virus killed 299 people. Hundreds in other countries also died.

H7N9 has sickened about 140 people and killed 45, almost all of them in mainland China. Taiwan has had one case.

The virus appears to have stalled since Chinese authorities cracked down on live animal markets following the initial outbreak. Medical authorities say it doesn't appear to be easily contagious between humans.

Health officials said that the second patient lived in Shenzhen, the mainland Chinese city across the border from Hong Kong, and sought treatment in the hospital. Authorities were looking for people who may have been in contact with him, including relatives, hospital staff and the taxi driver who brought him to the hospital.

Officials have stepped up border checks and raised the alert level after the first case, an Indonesian maid, was reported on Monday.

Newspaper editor's murder under review

Monday, 09 December 2013 06:08 Published in Local News

  COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A Columbia police detective is taking a fresh look at a journalist's 2001 slaying after one of two men originally convicted of murder was freed after his case was overturned.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports police are reviewing the sizable case file in the death of former Tribune sports editor Kent Heitholt, who was strangled and beaten to death in the newspaper's parking lot.

Ryan Ferguson spent nearly a decade in prison, but was released in November after an appeals court panel ruled that prosecutors wrongly withheld evidence from the defenses. Missouri's attorney general opted to not retry Ferguson.

Chuck Erickson continues to serve a 25-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to killing Heitholt. Ferguson says his former high school classmate is innocent.
