Proton radiation now available in St. Louis

Friday, 20 December 2013 11:32 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Proton radiation, designed to get rid of cancerous cells but spare healthy tissue, is now available for the first time in St. Louis.
 
The first use of proton radiation occurred Thursday at Barnes-Jewish Hospital during treatment of Steven Osborne, who has a brain tumor.
 
The proton machine cost $20 million and was delivered to the hospital in 2011. Software glitches held up use of the machine. Larger proton systems have previously opened at 11 other locations around the country.
 
Not everyone is a supporter. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that some criticize the massive and expensive machines as a symbol of rising health care costs, and note that there is no evidence that patient outcomes are better.

Police: Elderly St. Peter man missing

Friday, 20 December 2013 11:22 Published in Local News
A elderly St. Peters man has been missing for over 24 hours. 89-year-old Clarence Johnson was last seen on Thursday morning.
 
His family says he went to visit a friend around 10:30 Thursday morning. When his daughter called to check in that evening, his friend said she was not aware he was planning to come by the house and never made it.
 
Police say Johnson’s daughter believes he may have some memory loss and may be lost somewhere in the area. Clarence is described as a white male, 6-foot-1 inches tall, weighing about 210 pounds.  He was last seen in his gray 2005 Toyota Avalon with a Navy insignia Missouri plate DE403.
 
Anyone with information is asked to call St. Peters police at 636-278-2222.
 

Trooper the dog headed to forever home for Christmas

Friday, 20 December 2013 09:43 Published in Around Town

Just in time for Christmas, a dog that was severely injured after being dragged for nearly a mile down I-55 last November is getting a forever home.  

 

Trooper the dog went home Thrusday with his new owner.  The St. Louis man who adopted the energetic pit-bull is an experience dog owner who recently lost his own pit-bull after years of companionship.  Humane Society of Missouri president Kathy Warnick says narrowing down the list of applicants wasn't easy.

 

Trooper's new "dad" works from home, so he'll be able to spend lots of time with the dog as he continues to recover from his injuries.
