   After website issues caused a slow start, new data from the federal government shows enrollment in health-care plans through federal and state online marketplaces is taking off, particularly when it comes to young women.
   Laura Burbank, the lead certified application councilor for Planned Parenthood of St. Louis says more insured, young, women today will mean a healthier Missouri in the future.  "Women and families are going to have a lot more options to take care of themselves and their families," Burbank said.  "And that's going to really have long-term health impacts on our community."
   Burbank says she's not surprised to see so many young women taking advantage of the Affordable Care Act, because of features such as preventive care, maternity services and prescription birth control with no co-pay. "Having them included at no cost really kind of frees women up to be able to make those health-care choices for themselves," she said.
   According to the federal data, nearly 55,000 Missourians already have signed up for a marketplace plan. Nationwide, 55 percent of the 3.3 million new enrollees are women, with one in three of those who signed up in January younger than age 35.  
   Open enrollment ends March 31.
 

   It should be business as usual Friday at the Bank of America building in downtown St. Louis after an overnight hazmat scare.  

   St. Louis Police and Firefighters were called in about 12:30 a.m. after employees at the office tower found a white, powdery substance spilling out of a package.  

   Hazmat crews investigated and determined the substance wasn't dangerous.  There's no word what that white powder may have been.

Caseyville board reinstates fired police chief

Friday, 21 February 2014 03:22 Published in Local News
   CASEYVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The village board in Caseyville has voted to reinstate the village's police chief who was fired last week.
   Caseyville Police Chief Jose Alvarez was fired just five months after taking over for a predecessor who killed himself. But board members voted Thursday to reinstate Alvarez. Board member Rick Casey Jr. tells the Belleville News-Democrat that he voted to reinstate Alvarez because "the process in which he was fired was not right."
   At the time Alvarez said he wasn't aware that he'd been fired. When he fired Alvarez, Caseyville Mayor Len Black said he wanted to take a different direction with the city's police department.
   Black hired the 61-year-old Alvarez last September after the suicide three months earlier of former police chief J.D. Roth.
