MADD honors Illinois efforts to combat drunk driving

Friday, 10 January 2014 02:54 Published in Local News

   Illinois' efforts to keep drunk drivers off the roads is earning recognition from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers.  MADD has given the state its highest rating for drunk-driving prevention.  

   Illinois has earned five stars in MADD's 2014 Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving report, which was released Thursday.  Some of the reasons cited in the report:  the state's use of sobriety check points and an all-offender ignition interlock law that took effect in 2009.

Schnuck's shuffles leadership of grocery chain

Friday, 10 January 2014 02:50 Published in Local News

   You could call it the Schnuck's shuffle.  

   The youngest of the Schnuck brothers is getting ready to take over the family business.  

   Fifty-five year old Todd Schnuck has been COO of Schnuck's Supermarkets since 2009.  The grocery chain's current chief executive, 63 year old Scott Schnuck, says its time for new leadership.  

   Scott Schnuck will take over as chairman when his older brother, 65 year old Craig Schnuck retires in March, but says he'll stick around until fall to help his younger brother Todd transition into the role of president and CEO.  

   The company also announced Thursday that former Aldi and Walmart executive Anthony Hucker will assume the role of COO.

   The extended winter break continues for Johnson-Wabash Elementary students in the Ferguson-Florissant School District.  A sprinkler head burst Tuesday night, causing significant water damage to the school and forcing officials to cancel classes for the rest of this week.  

   District officials say they don't want to keep kids home until all of the repairs are made.  So, starting Monday, classes will be held at the First Baptist Church of Ferguson in the 300 block of North Florissant Road.  

   District officials plan to meet with families Thursday at 5:30 at Johnson-Wabash Elementary School to share information about the temporary relocation.
