Blue Cross extends payment deadline to Jan. 30

Thursday, 09 January 2014 03:12 Published in Local News
   CHICAGO (AP) - People who signed up recently for health insurance with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois now have until Jan. 30 to pay their first month's premium and still get coverage for all of January.
   Company spokesman Greg Thompson says customers must pay their first month's premium before coverage for medical benefits begins. But claims for services received between Jan. 1 and when the first payment is received will be processed retroactively.
   Blue Cross has the most customers in the state's individual market.
   Thompson says the company is extending the payment deadline to give customers extra time to plan their household budgets.
   The extension applies to people who bought a Blue Cross plan either on the new insurance marketplace or directly from the insurance company.
 

Warning issued over boiling water experiment

Wednesday, 08 January 2014 04:16 Published in Local News

   Don't play with boiling hot water.  That's the message from officials at St. Louis Children's hospital after two children were treated Tuesday for facial burns.  

   Hospital spokeswoman Abby Wuellner told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the pair had been injured when they threw a pot of boiling water into the air outside to see if it would turn to ice crystals or snow before hitting the ground.  

   The paper reports that interest in the at-home experiment has peaked since video of a Wisconsin weatherman doing it on Monday went viral.

Woman charged for lying about where she found stray dog

Wednesday, 08 January 2014 04:14 Published in Local News

   A Lincoln County woman is facing misdemeanor charges for lying to police about where she found a stray dog.

   On December 27th, Jessica Dudding took a yellow Labrador she'd found in Lincoln County to Wentzville and told police she'd found the dog on Wentzville Parkway.  Lincoln County has no animal shelters.  

   Wentzville police took the lost dog to the city shelter.  

   The dog's owner had to pay 250-dollars in shelter fees and a 50-dollar fine for letting his dog roam loose in Wentzville.  So Dudding told police where she really found the dog, so his owner wouldn't be fined.  And that's when police charged her with a crime.  

   Wentzville Police Major Paul West told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that they had to charge her because "you don't get to lie to the police."  

   West says the judge could dismiss the charges when Dudding goes to court January 21st.  

   The dog's owner has said he'll pay any fine assessed against Dudding.
