   CHICAGO (AP) - A pair of new Illinois laws will fund diabetes research and track economic costs of the disease.

   Gov. Pat Quinn signed the bills Thursday at a conference organized by the University of Chicago Medicine's Kovler Diabetes Center.

   One measure creates a special license plate. Just over half of the $40 cost of the plate will go to the Diabetes Research Checkoff Fund.

   House minority leader Tom Cross sponsored the bill. He hopes the license plate will serve as a "moving billboard" for diabetes awareness.

   The second bill requires the Illinois State Diabetes Commission to report regularly on the economic and social costs of diabetes and efforts to prevent the disease.

   The laws take effect Jan. 1.

   The Illinois Department of Public Health says about 800,000 state residents have diabetes.

 

   The parents of a Lincoln County girl who reported being molested by a priest are now suing St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson, claiming he knew the priest was a danger to children. The suit, filed Friday in Lincoln County, asks for unspecified damages.  

   The teenage girl had told police last June that Father Xiu Hui "Joseph" Jiang, an associate pastor at the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica in the Central West End, had molested her.  The 30 year old priest was later charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Long awaited grocery store coming to the Loop

Thursday, 18 July 2013 03:37 Published in Local News

   Good news for the growing resident population in the Delmar Loop:  A grocery store is coming.  

   Washington University will formally announce on Thursday that specialty grocer Global Foods Market has agreed to lease nearly 15,000 square feet in the five-story student apartment building going up at Delmar and Eastgate.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that it will be the second Global Foods Market in the metro area.  The first opened in Kirkwood in 1999.  

   The paper reports that Blueberry Hill owner Joe Edwards will put his new Peacock Loop Diner in the building next door.  

   The Lofts of Washington University will house about 600 students beginning in August of next year (2014).
