Daily Dose: Report on Cancer Risk at Weldon Springs is Questioned

St. Louis Post-Dispatch took a look at a state report which found that radioactive waste at the Weldon Spring site was not causing residents of St. Charles County to have a higher risk of leukemia. Some have questioned why the report didn't break down the rates of cancer by zip code. 

Blogger Bob McCarty raised some questions about this report in a post on Jan. 23. Check out his thoughts here.

Now onto news from the neighborhood: 

  • St. Charles Suburban Journals posted a photo from the Fife and Drum Corps parade down Main Street Saturday. 
  • We're still looking for people who might be interested in writing about politics for St. Charles Patch. Shoot an email to kalen.ponche@patch.com.
