Poinsettias on sale at SEMO

Friday, 29 November 2013 08:46 Published in Local News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - Horticulture students at Southeast Missouri State University have evaluated 42 varieties of holiday poinsettias and are selling the plants to the public.

Three breeding companies sent rooted cuttings to the Cape Girardeau school's greenhouse in August. Greenhouse staff and students grew the plants and sent their analysis to each company.

Greenhouse manager Denise Pingel says seven of the varieties haven't been released to the market for commercial production.

She says most of the plants are red, but the greenhouse also tested a few varieties of white, pink and burgundy poinsettias and some with multiple colors.

The sale of several thousand poinsettias began last week and continues through Dec. 24.

Edwardsville fire under investigation

Friday, 29 November 2013 08:29 Published in Local News

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Illinois state fire investigators are trying to determine what sparked a southwestern Illinois house fire that killed its occupant and his dog early Thanksgiving Day.

Madison County Coroner Steve Noon says the man's body was found after firefighters doused the rural Edwardsville fire. The blaze was reported shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday by a neighbor.

Noon says the man was found in an upstairs bedroom, and that an autopsy is planned. The coroner says the fire's origin doesn't appear to be suspicious.

The victim's name hasn't yet been released.

 

Washington dog found after 9 days under rubble

Friday, 29 November 2013 03:25 Published in Local News

WASHINGTON, Ill. (AP) - A dog and his owner have been reunited after the animal was found under a pile of rubble more than a week after a tornado ripped through a central Illinois city.

Jacob Montgomery of Washington and his dog Dexter were separated when the Nov. 17 tornado damaged Montgomery's third floor apartment.

Montgomery is a member of the Illinois National Guard.

A guard spokesman says a neighbor sent Montgomery a Facebook message nine days later to tell him Dexter had been found under debris where the apartment used to be.

An animal rescuing organization had oaxed the 6-month-old puppy out of the rubble with hot dogs.

A veterinarian found Dexter to be malnourished, but without any major injuries.

Montgomery says as soon as the dog saw him "his tail started going."
