Officials: Smelly drinking water poses no health risk

Thursday, 06 March 2014 13:07 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis officials say the Missouri River is to blame for a foul smell in drinking water.
 
Water commissioner Curt Skouby told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the odor and taste should be gone within days. Meanwhile, he says the water is safe to drink.
 
Officials say upriver snowmelt and changing temperatures, along with naturally occurring material in the river, is causing the odor.
 
Kansas City, Mo., has also had complaints about its water in recent days.

Report: More Illinois kids with health care

Thursday, 06 March 2014 12:55 Published in Local News
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A new report shows fewer Illinois children are without health insurance, but the number of cases of child abuse is climbing.
 
The annual report released Thursday comes from a non-partisan organization advocating for policies concerning children called Voices For Illinois Children.
 
The report shows the percentage of children without health insurance fell from 6 percent to 3 percent since 2008.  It also found Illinois has "significantly narrowed" racial and ethnic disparities in children's health insurance coverage.
 
But cases of child abuse and neglect have risen 13 percent since 2006. Some of the largest increases were in DuPage, Kane, Macon, Vermillion and Will counties.
