Build-a-Bear looking to rebuild business strategy

Monday, 20 January 2014 09:44 Published in Local News
OVERLAND, Mo. (AP) - The new chief executive of Build-A-Bear Workshop Inc. sees a comeback in the near future for the Missouri-based company.
The company, which allows customers to customize and "build" stuffed animals, has seen its sales decline since in 2007, with only one profitable year in the last four years.
Sharon Price John, who became chief executive officer of the Overland-based company six months ago, says she is optimistic that changes initiated recently will help the company turn around.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports John made her case to investors in a meeting last week at a conference in Florida.
She says the company declined in part because it did not respond to economic changes. Among other moves, the company is closing 60 underperforming stores and is updating its marketing.
 

Salting the walkways could damage plants and shrubs

Monday, 20 January 2014 09:39 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Salt used to make roads and sidewalks passable after winter weather can damage surrounding plants.
The Department of Conservation says Missourians can protect plants by creating drainage channels or barriers, using ice melting chemicals in moderation and by being particularly careful about applying salt in late winter and early spring.
Damage can be treated by pruning dead or deformed branches and washing away surface salt residue. Powdered gypsum can be applied if soil has been contaminated by long and heavy exposure. Moderately contaminated soil should get 100 to 200 pounds of gypsum for every thousand square feet.
Officials say symptoms of exposure to salt spray include yellowing or dwarfing of foliage.
   
 

Argument over vehicle prompts father to shoot son

Monday, 20 January 2014 09:36 Published in Local News
UNION, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri man is charged with first-degree assault for allegedly shooting his son in an argument over a vehicle.
Authorities say 67-year-old Charles W. Crow of Franklin County is also charged with armed criminal action.
Deputies were called Friday evening to a home in a rural area between Union and St. Clair, where 39-year-old Nathanial Crow had been shot. He was airlifted to a suburban St. Louis hospital with a chest wound and is in stable condition.
Witnesses told authorities that Nathaniel Crow was retrieving a vehicle in his father's possession, prompting an argument. Charles Crow is jailed on $100,000 cash-only bond.
