Coca-cola closing Maryland Hts. plant

Friday, 24 January 2014 03:48 Published in Local News

   Another business is closing up shop in the St. Louis Area.  KSDK-TV reports that the Coca-Cola production facility in Maryland Heights will close permanently March 28th.  

   Maryland Heights Mayor Mike Moeller tells the station the closure will affect about 100 employees.  Most of them are production workers and maintenance mechanics.  

   Moeller says Coke is indicating the displaced workers will be offered jobs at other facilities, training for new positions, or a severance package. 

Mystery illness sends 3 Hazelwood children to hospital

Friday, 24 January 2014 03:42 Published in Local News

   Doctors are still trying to determine what caused three young children to become sick inside their Hazelwood home.  

   Authorities say the children's babysitter called 9-1-1 Thursday afternoon when she had trouble waking the children, ages two, three and four.  Firefighters pulled the children from the home on Tamma Lane and rushed them to DePaul Hospital.  

   Just what made them sick is still a mystery.  Firefighters checked the home for carbon monoxide leaks, but found none.  Initial toxicology tests also gave no clues.  

   The children were later airlifted to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital for more extensive testing. Hazelwood police say they're being told the children are expected to recover.  

Injunction a blow to Mo. health care law

Friday, 24 January 2014 03:37 Published in Local News
   ST. LOUIS (AP) - A federal judge on Thursday granted a preliminary injunction against Missouri's law requiring a state license to serve as a navigator to help consumers sign up for coverage through the new health insurance marketplace.
   An attorney for the St. Louis-based plaintiffs calls the ruling by U.S. District Judge Ortrie Smith a "huge victory." 
   A new state law requires insurance counselors to receive at least 30 hours of training and pay a small fee in order to help online shoppers negotiate the federal insurance exchange. Missouri's Republican-led Legislature opted against setting up a state-run exchange.
   The lawsuit filed in November said the requirements conflict with the federal Affordable Care Act.
