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.

REPUBLIC, Mo. (AP) - A southwest Missouri high school teacher says the state should add bass fishing as a high school sport.

Jim Huson, a teacher at Republic High School, says a proposal to add the sport will be on the spring ballot for high school administrators. He says bass fishing would become a sport if it gets approval from 50 percent, plus one, of the administrators.

KY3-TV reports approval would allow students to fish for state and national championships.

If approved, schools could have up to two boats with two students fishing in each boat. Teams would have a five-fish limit, and the team with the five heaviest fish wins.

GODFREY, Ill. (AP) - Authorities in Madison County are searching out anyone who may have bought things from an alleged burglar of storage units, and they're confident the purchasers will remember the seller.

Twenty-four year old Adam Roberts is accused of three felony counts of burglary related to thefts last month from as many as 28 storage units in his hometown of Godfrey.

What makes Roberts distinctive is the skeleton-style tattoo over his face - artwork sheriff's Capt. Mike Dixon calls "just odd."

Authorities say they've recovered $1,000 worth of stolen property taken in the break-ins, but they suspect Roberts or an accomplice may have sold other items.

Roberts is jailed on $60,000 bond. Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney.

Anyone having information concerning this investigation or the stolen property is urged to contact the Madison County Sheriff’s Office at the following numbers:

618-692-4433 (Dispatch Center)
618-692-0871 (Investigative Division)
618-296-3000 (Anonymous Tip Line)

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A fan made a half-court shot before the Missouri Valley Conference tournament final, but missed a $50,000 jackpot because he forgot to hit a 3 pointer first.

Alex Pertmann of Maryland Heights, Mo., made a layup on his first try and free throw on his second effort, then scampered to mid-court, where he hit nothing but net with a couple of seconds left on a 24-second clock Sunday. After being informed of the error, and with no time remaining, Pertmann went back to the 3 point line and missed a couple of attempts.

As a consolation prize, the Valley gave the 22 year old Pertmann four tickets to the conference tournament for life.

The Valley has held the promotion every season since 2004. Pertmann, who plays intramural basketball at UMSL, was the first to come close to cashing in.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Old Slave Road in suburban St. Louis could be getting a new name.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Historic Preservation Commission in Wildwood is considering whether to recommend a name change.

Residents who live along the road complain that the name tends to offend people. Opponents say residents are trying to sanitize history.

Spanning just six-tenths of a mile, the private street used to be the main road to a planation home and runs past a historic slave cemetery.

Historic Preservation Commission chairman Lynne Martin says the current name dates only from about 1979, when a developer platted the subdivision along the road.

Most of the property owners are recommending renaming it Elijah Madison Lane to recognize a former slave who fought in the Civil War.
