Police search for man who robbed nun in St. Louis

Thursday, 10 October 2013 07:52 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are looking for a man who robbed a nun.

 

   Authorities say the victim was walking to St. John the Baptist School on the city's south side around 5 a.m. Thursday when a man armed with a screwdriver robbed her and took her wallet. The nun was not injured, and the man ran away.

   

 

Don't be alarmed by the overwhelming stench of death coming from the Missouri Botanical Gardens. It's just the corpse flower in bloom. The rare plant known as titum arum is expected to bloom within the next few weeks. Only 160 of the tall, stinky flowers have bloomed worldwide, including two at the Botanical Gardens last year. Experts say the corpse flower is extremely hard to cultivate and will only bloom under the right conditions. If you're interested in taking a whiff, daytime viewing of the flower is included with admission to the gardens. 

SSM Health Care cutting jobs

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 07:35 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis-based nonprofit hospital system is cutting jobs. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/19zhw51 ) reports that SSM Health Care is making the announcement this week to employees. Spokeswoman Kristen Johnson says that out of respect for affected workers, details won't be made public until later this week. Some health care organizations, including BJC HealthCare in St. Louis, have cut staffs in part due to reduced government reimbursements from Medicare and Medicaid services. Johnson declined to say why SSM's layoffs were necessary. SSM has 18 hospitals, two nursing homes and more than 150 outpatient sites and operates in Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma and Wisconsin.
