Cancer prevention study needs St. Louis participants

Tuesday, 19 February 2013 11:55 Published in Local News
The American Cancer Society is seeking 300,000 people nationwide for a comprehensive cancer prevention study.

Researchers are looking for environmental, lifestyle, and genetic causes of cancer and they plan on using the information gathered to find ways to prevent and ultimately cure the disease. "Currently, there are no other studies of this magnitude in the US that enable researchers to look at various racial and ethnic populations and cancer risks," stated Mike Dany, Executive Vice President for the American Cancer Society.

Some of St. Louis' top employers are now teaming up with the American Cancer Society to help recruit local participants. UMB, Centene, Edward Jones, KPMG, Maritz and Monsanto will be encouraging all of their employees to enroll. Dr. Jeff Michalski, a radiation oncologist at Washington University says St. Louis is a perfect place to draw upon study participants.

"St. Louis is a very diverse community," said Michalski. "And to translate the discoveries that this cancer study will have to a broad community, the population enrolled has to reflect the population as a whole."

The American Cancer Society's goal is to sign up 1,000 people from the St. Louis area between the ages of 30 and 65. Participants will be asked to submit blood and then fill out periodic surveys every few years. Enrollment starts April 23. To sign up for the study you can go to cancerstudymo.org or call 888-604-5888.

Car thefts up, police blame new law

Monday, 18 February 2013 10:06 Published in Local News
St. Louis County police says a revised law could be to blame for an up-tick in stolen cars. The Post-Dispatch reports the law, which took effect last August, made it legal to sell a nonfunctioning vehicle 10 years or older without a title. The law was intended to help rural landowners get rid of abandoned vehicles on their property. Instead, police say, thieves are making off the cars and selling them for scrap, often making between $200 and $500.

Local reaction to Pope Benedict's resignation

Monday, 11 February 2013 11:23 Published in Around Town
Local religious leaders were stunned to hear the news that Pope Benedict will be stepping down at the end of the month.

When asked about the possibility that St. Louis' own Cardinal Timothy Dolan taking over as Pope auxiliary Bishop Edward Rice said that's better left for a higher power to decide "He's a hometown boy, I'm a hometown boy, so it would certainly be tremendous and certainly he would be up for the job. You know...it's not a pat answer, it's the truth, but we have to rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us."

Selected as the 265th Pope in 2005, Benedict will become the first Pope to resign since Gregory XII in 1415.
