STL has cheapest gas in the nation...for now

Monday, 07 October 2013 03:41 Published in Local News

   Finally, St. Louis is topping a national list everyone wants to head.  The Lundberg Survey of fuel prices reports that the Gateway City has lowest gasoline prices in the nation.  

   The survey released Sunday put the price at the pump in St. Louis at $3.01 per gallon.  

   The survey indicates that the average U.S. price of a gallon of gasoline has dropped 14 cents over the past two weeks to $3.38. Diesel was down 4 cents at $3.92 gallon.

   San Francisco has the highest prices at $3.88 per gallon for regular unleaded.  

   Both man and beast will benefit from a busy fundraising weekend in St. Louis.  

   Thousands turned out at Forest Park for the 19th annual JDRF Walk to cure diabetes.  Officials estimate about 25,000 people took part in yesterday's walk which raised money for people living with type-one diabetes.  

   Soldier's memorial was the starting place for the fourth annual "Pedal the Cause" fundraiser.  The cycling event raises money for cancer research at the Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.  In the first three years, the event has raised more than four million dollars for cancer research.

   And the Animal Protective Association of Missouri hosted its 23rd annual Canine Carnival Sunday at Tilles Park.  Dogs and their owners participated in agility contests, a cheese ball toss, and a celebrity-judged "ugliest" dog contest.  The Canine Carnival is the APA's biggest event of the year.

 

Non-tenured U of I faculty want more security

Monday, 07 October 2013 03:08 Published in Local News

   URBANA, Ill. (AP) - The growing number of professors at the University of Illinois who don't have tenure want somebody besides their students to listen to them.

   The Champaign News-Gazette reports adjunct faculty, instructors, lecturers and others who don't have tenure are hoping the school will take steps that would give them more job stability. Some are even assessing the need for a faculty union in Urbana.

   Tenured faculty say their non-tenured colleagues deserve a stronger voice in what happens on campus.

   Administrators in the school's provost office have been reviewing issues that are specific to non-tenured instructors. A spokeswoman says the goal is to have some policies in place sometime during this academic year.
