MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) - A hole similar to one that trapped a 6-year-old Illinois boy beneath 11 feet of sand has been found on the same northern Indiana dune.
National Park Service Ranger Bruce Rowe says a crew setting up ground-sensing equipment to examine Mount Baldy at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on Monday spotted a 10-inch wide hole resembling the size and shape of the pocket described by the boy's family.
Rowe says the hole is about 100 yards east of where Nathan Woessner, of Sterling, Ill., was trapped and is about 5-feet deep. He says the dune will remain closed until scientists determine what is causing the holes.
Emergency workers freed Nathan after he was trapped for more than three hours on July 12. He was hospitalized for two weeks.
A traffic note for the upcoming weekend. MoDOT plans to close the ramp from eastbound 64 to Vandeventer on Saturday morning at 6 AM.
The closure is part of the Tower Grove Project that will build a full interchange at Tower Grove and Boyle and replace four bridges over the interstate. The ramp will remain closed until spring of next year.
The City's health department director testified at a Medicaid hearing at St. Louis Community College on Wednesday.
Pam Walker says 57,000 people in the St. Louis are are uninsured, and about 90% of those would qualify for Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. The City's health director says 26 other states have already expanded their Medicaid, and if the state of Missouri fails to do so, it would be a major safety net issue in St. Louis City.
Currently, only pregnant women, children, and the disabled are covered by Medicaid. Walker wants to see it expanded to cover 133% of poverty, which is about $26,000 for a family of four.
It appears union workers and Metro Transit still have a long way to go before agreeing on new contracts. Union members from the St. Louis area cast a symbolic vote Tuesday.
Labor leaders says workers voted in favor of a mediator's recommendations related to pensions and pay but rejected recommendations related to health insurance.
John Nations, Metro president and CEO says the transit agency doesn't have the money to meet workers demands. He's urging the two sides to sit down and negotiate.
Union officials say they don't expect a strike this month, but say if transit officials don't negotiate in good faith, a work stoppage could come next month.
