    Schock: Bill passed by Congress empowers those with disabilities

    Thursday, December 18 2014 6:28 PM EST2014-12-18 23:28:30 GMT
    U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock said a “no brainer” bill that will give people with disabilities new freedom to set aside savings has won passage in Congress. “Unfortunately right now our society penalizes folks who are living with a disability from creating a nest egg and providing for themselves and doing what all of us think is the responsible thing of saving for a rainy day,” Schock said.

    David Carrothers had more than a casual interest in Wednesday's announcement concerning the United States and Cuba agreeing to re-establish diplomatic relations and dialing back some of the economic and travel restrictions between the two countries. Carrothers, a Culver-Stockton College professor and a former member of the U.S. Air Force Strategic Air Command, was visiting Cuba year ago at this time.

    '12 Hours of Giving' set for Friday at Quincy Blood Donation Center

    Thursday, December 18 2014 1:45 PM EST2014-12-18 18:45:34 GMT
    The American Red Cross hopes Friday's 10th annual "12 Hours of Giving" will serve as a pre-emptive strike against expected blood shortages over the Christmas and New Year's periods. "Many donors are busy with holiday activities, inclement weather can force the cancellation of blood drives ... (and) some donors become temporarily ineligible because of seasonal illnesses," Corey said.
