Health care worker accused of beating patient

Thursday, 07 November 2013 14:12 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Florissant home health care worker is charged with third-degree abuse for allegedly using a belt to beat a group home resident who soiled a car as the pair returned from a shopping trip.

KMOV-TV reports that 23-year-old Daniel Bonner was charged Tuesday with a misdemeanor offense in St. Louis County Circuit Court.

He is accused of assaulting a man with mild retardation and schizophrenia in late September while working at a group home managed by Preferred Alternatives Inc. in St. Charles.  The company says Bonner has since been fired. Online court records don't list an attorney for Bonner.

The group home resident was treated at an area hospital for cuts and bruises.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's fourth- and eighth-graders are doing about the same on math and reading tests as they were two years ago and about average when compared with the rest of the country.

That's according to the 2013 Nation's Report Card, which was released Thursday. The results come from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP, which is given to a sample of students.

Among fourth-graders, 39 percent scored at or above the NAEP proficient level in reading and 35 percent in math. The percentages were similar among eighth-graders, with 36 percent scoring at or above proficient in reading and 35 percent scoring at or above the proficient level in reading.

Missouri education commissioner Chris Nicastro says the state still has "work to do."

 

Debate over future of embattled state lawmaker

Thursday, 07 November 2013 13:29 Published in Local News

The future of a troubled state lawmaker is unclear. Democratic Missouri State Representative Steve Webb was charged yesterday for theft and campaign finance violations.

Prosecutors say that Webb solicited donations for an event in Washington DC, instead, he deposited that money in a personal account. Shortly after the charges, the AP reported that House Minority leader Jake Hummel said Webb told his office he planned to resign. Later Wednesday, Webb told reporters he had no plans to step down. 

Thursday, Hummel released a statement saying standing by his previous comments, that Webb told him he planned to resign. Hummel continues that for the sake of his family and constituents, Webb should resign. Webb represents portions of North St. Louis County, including Florissant.
