Injured dog found at Humane Society in St. Louis

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 00:13 Published in Local News

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Humane Society of Missouri is seeking information about a severely injured dog left outside its St. Louis headquarters this past weekend.

   The female Dalmatian mix was abandoned early Saturday outside the organization's Macklind Avenue offices. The dog's right paw had been chewed off and skin and tissue licked off its rear left paw, exposing bone. Its rear legs were infected with gangrene. The injuries were severe enough that the dog was euthanized.

   The society is offering a $1,000 reward for information about the injured animal. It operates an animal cruelty hotline at (314) 647-4400.

 

New technology offers clues into New Madrid Fault

Monday, 07 October 2013 04:30 Published in Local News

   CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - New research by the U.S. Geological Society suggests that while the New Madrid Seismic Zone hasn't produced a major earthquake in more than 200 years, the risk remains.

   The Southeast Missourian reports that scientists used new technology to develop high-resolution imagery of the seismic zone centered around New Madrid, Mo. The imagery allows for more detailed mapping, showing weak rocks in the zone that are found at deeper depths in the Earth's mantle compared to surrounding areas.

   Findings were published recently in the Earth and Planetary Science Letters journal.

   University of Memphis earthquake expert Charles Langston says at least 200 earthquakes occur in the seismic zone every year, but most are very small. He believes there's a good chance of a damaging quake in the next 50 years.

 

STL Aldermen consider McKee's Northside TIF this week

Monday, 07 October 2013 03:45 Published in Local News

   A U.S. Congressman and the Mayor of St. Louis will both go before the Board of Aldermen this week in hopes of forwarding the long-stalled Northside Regeneration Project.  

   Aldermen are considering a bill that would tweak developer Paul McKee's nearly $400 million tax increment financing package to account for delays suffered while the city fought a lawsuit against it.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the fate of the project's TIF is unclear.  

   Congressman William Lacy Clay and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay will speak in favor the 1,500 acre project.  But only one of the five aldermen whose wards make up the project area just north of downtown, 5th Ward Alderwoman Tammika Hubbard, clearly supports Northside.  

   And one, Alderman Freeman Bosley Senior, has threatened to block the bill if there isn't more community input in the project and better protections for current homeowners.
