Morning fire in Madison County destroys home

Thursday, 30 January 2014 09:58 Published in Local News
Two people escaped a three-alarm fire early this morning in Madison County.
Fox2 News reports that authorities believe an explosion started the blaze which destroyed a home in the  400 block of Valley Drive in Rosewood Heights.  The fire was reported just before 6:30 a.m.
The fire chief says there was some type of explosion inside the garage and the fire spread through the main part of the home.
Both people in the home were taken to an area hospital for smoke inhalation.  A house next door was also damaged by the explosion.  
The fire chief says the fire is not suspicious. There are reports that the family had propane tanks in the garage. The State Fire Marshall will investigate the cause of the blaze. 

Record award in railroad accident case

Wednesday, 29 January 2014 11:29 Published in Local News
In what may be a record in Jefferson County, a jury has awarded $12.5 million to a railroad worker whose right leg was amputated after being run over by a train.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that 51 year old Michael Bolen of Jackson, Mo., was hurt in May 2012 as he was directing trains in a rail yard in Crystal City.
He claims he was walking along the track and tripped over a boulder that was left in the rail yard. He fell onto the tracks and both legs were run over by a slow-moving train.  His right leg was crushed and he also lost part of the heel on his left foot. 
Bolen's attorney, Nelson Wolff, told the newspaper that Bolen was a conductor/switchman for BNSF Railway and said the train company was negligent in having a rocky area where workers walked.
Wolff said this may be the largest personal-injury verdict in the history of Jefferson County. 

The St. Louis Public School District will adjust the 2013/2014 school calendar to make-up two of the six instructional days lost due to inclement weather this winter.  Snow, ice and extreme cold temperatures resulted in the District cancelling classes on January 6 – 10 and January 21. 

The District will cancel a Professional Development day scheduled for Friday, February 14, 2014 and use this day as a full instructional day for students and staff. 

The District is also cancelling the Parent/Teacher Conference Day scheduled for Friday, March 14, 2014 and will use this day as a full instructional day for students and staff. 

The 3rd Quarter report cards will now be sent home to parents via students on March 14.

As there are approximately two months of potential winter weather remaining, the District will withhold making a decision on the remaining four snow days until the threat of additional winter weather passes. 

The adjusted calendar is now available on the District website: www.slps.org.
