Monday, 17 February 2014 08:18 Published in Local News

   CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Officials are set to announce a new president the Southern Illinois University system Monday afternoon during a meeting in Edwardsville.

   Board members say nearly 100 people applied for the job.

   The new president will replace Glenn Poshard, who's retiring and plans to step down in June even though his contract expires in 2015.

   SIU has campuses Carbondale and Edwardsville, and medical and dental schools in Alton and Decater.

   St. Louis' Burnin' Love festival at Forest Park will be held on what's expected to be the warmest day of the year so far.  

   The outdoor festival celebrating the Gateway City's 250th anniversary had originally been set for Friday night, Valentines Day, but had to be rescheduled because of bitter cold and icy conditions at the venue.  

   The event will now be held Tuesday evening at the top of Art Hill.  

   Festivities will include music, food, fire dancers, video presentations and a World Record attempt.  More than 300 St. Louis couples plan to get engaged, or re-engaged simultaneously.  There will also be special activities for the kids.  

   The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and caps off with fireworks at 9:15.    

SIUE bans E-cigarettes indoors

Monday, 17 February 2014 07:45 Published in Health & Fitness

   Smokers of electronic cigarettes will have to go outdoors like smokers of traditional tobacco products at one St. Louis area college campus.  The Belleville News Democrat reports SIU-Edwardsville has banned electronic cigarettes indoors.  

   Campus officials told the paper that they felt the need to set a policy on E-cigarettes, since its the state's indoor smoking ban doesn't address them.  Electronic cigarettes deliver nicotine via water vapor instead of smoke from burning tobacco.  University officials say there's not enough data on the safety of the water vapors to non-smokers nearby.

   Under SIUE's new policy, E-cigarettes may only be used outdoors, at least 15 feet away from an entrance.
