Creve Coeur-based Monsanto has announced that it will create nearly 700 jobs with a massive expansion project. The plant-science giant says it will spend over $400 million to improve it's Chesterfield research center. With the expansion, Monsanto says they will bring high-paying, high-tech jobs to the St. Louis area. The expansion will include new green houses, laboratories, and office space. The state of Missouri will help finance over $31 million of the project, if the company succeeds in creating 675 jobs. Construction is expected to begin in August with a completion date sometime in 2017. 

Dem, GOP senators reach background check deal

Wednesday, 10 April 2013 09:22 Published in National News

 WASHINGTON (AP) - A Senate aide and a lobbyist say two senators have struck a bipartisan deal on expanding background checks to more firearms purchases. The agreement could build support for President Barack Obama's drive to curb gun violence.

 

   Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania planned to announce their pact Wednesday.

 

   Gun control advocates consider background checks the most effective of the proposals Congress is considering for reducing gun violence.

 

   The deal would expand the checks to cover all commercial sales, such as at gun shows and online. Private transactions that are not for profit, such as those between relatives, would be exempt.

 

   Currently, the system only covers sales through licensed gun dealers.

 

   The aide and lobbyist spoke on condition of anonymity to describe private talks.

 

COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - An Italian greyhound that spent eight months on the lam is back in his southwestern Illinois home after being returned from where he turned up more than 900 miles away.

 

   Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis (http://bit.ly/Y9rhBc) reports 5-year-old Dauz went missing from the Dausman family's fenced Collinsville yard in July of last year, only to turn up last month at an animal shelter in Fairfax, Va.

 

   Alicia Dausman believes Dauz was stolen by a friend's family member who temporarily was living with them.

 

   Dauz was reunited after the Virginia shelter scanned the digital identification chip implanted in the dog's neck and notified the family.

 

   Dausman says the pet is thinner, lighter in color and barks raspier, but appears happy to be home.
