Loop Trolleys approved

Tuesday, 12 March 2013 09:50 Published in Local News
Streetcars will be returning to the Delmar Loop. Monday evening, the University City Council unanimously approved conditional use permits for the Loop Trolley Company. Plans call for the streetcars to run down Delmar to DeBalivier, then south to the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park. The project is expected to cost around $40-million, with $25-million coming from a federal grant. The trolley should be up and running by late summer of 2014.

Three jail escapees back in custody

Tuesday, 12 March 2013 09:40 Published in Local News
Three jail escapees are back in custody.

Authorities found the three on Tuesday afternoon in a scrap yard where one of the men used to work. Matthew Cook, Kade Stringfellow, and Rodney Green escaped from the Butler County Jail by crawling out through the ceiling. After escaping, the men had to walk about five miles to get to the scrap yard. Cook and Stringfellow were being held on unrelated murder charges, while Green was accused of taking part in a violent home invasion.

No word on any additional charges after the escape attempt.

Hundreds of nurses protest at SLU hospital

Monday, 11 March 2013 11:52 Published in Local News
Nurses from Saint Louis University and Des Peres hospitals took to the streets in Midtown Monday morning. About 200 nurses marched up and down Grand Avenue in front of SLU Hospital. Part of National Nurses United, the RNs are calling on Tenet Healthcare Corporation to renew and extent their contracts. Tenet Heathcare owns and operates SLU and Des Peres hospitals. SLU nurse Aaron Southworth tells KTRS that more nurses means better heath care.

"Making the patient/staffing ratio better will benefit all nurses, it will benefit patients, and it will benefit the hospital as a whole," said Southworth.

Among other concerns, the nurses want management to hire lift teams for patients. They say nurses have some of the highest rates of back injuries from moving patients. The nurses also expressed concerns when it comes supplies, staffing, and overall policy matters.

In a statement released to KTRS News, SLU says they will continue to negotiate with the nurses in good faith and they hope to reach an agreement that's beneficial to both sides.
