The first of two meetings to is set for tomorrow for North St. Louis County residents  who want answers to questions about the putrid odor from  smoldering garbage at the Bridgeton Landfill.

 They've also worried about the proximity of the underground fire to radioactive waste at the adjacent West Lake Landfill.

    The Missouri Coalition for the Environment tells KTRS news now those concerns have drawn the attention of Erin Brockovich and her legal team. The environmental activist was portrayed by Julia Roberts in the 2000 film about her battle against a utility accused of polluting a small California town's water supply.

     A Los Angeles attorney and an environmental investigator who work with Brockovich will meet with residents and answer their questions tomorrow  morning at eleven at the Operating Engineers Union Hall off  Hollenburg Drive.

   Brockovich, who was initially supposed to attend the meeting, will NOT be there. It’s unclear if her absence is related to her arrest in Nevada last week for boating while intoxicated.

   Local environmental groups have pushed for years to have the Army Corps of Engineers take control of the cleanup and excavate tons of Cold War-era nuclear weapons waste that was deposited illegally in the early 1970s.

    A second meeting is set Monday night with State Rep. Bill Otto, of St. Charles at Pattonville High School.  Otto said the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Department of Health and Human Services and technical experts hired by the DNR to assess the landfill fire will be available via webcast to present information and answer questions.

 

Two schools to close in Cahokia, IL

Thursday, 13 June 2013 11:10 Published in Local News

Administrators of the school district in Cahokia, Illinois plan to close two schools in an effort to spare education programs and teaching jobs.

The board is looking to close an early childhood center and the freshman academy. The freshmen will be merged in with students at the regular high school.

 

GODFREY, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois prosecutor says a boy bitten by a pet monkey during a dog event will undergo precautionary rabies vaccinations rather than having the primate euthanized to see if it's infected with the disease.

Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons tells The (Alton) Telegraph that the decision involving the 6-year-old boy came after the prosecutor's office consulted with the child's parents.

The monkey named Nina has been in quarantine since it bit the boy June 2 when the child tried to pet the java macaque during a yearly "Bark in the Park" event in Godfrey. 

No charges have been filed, and Gibbons' office is trying to determine who legally owns the monkey.

Dr. David Hall with Madison County's animal-control office says his agency was seeking advice from the Illinois Department of Agriculture.
