Brussels, Belgium – The head office of the European Union will decide whether to approve a biotech corn made by St. Louis-based Monsanto.
European Union governments today (Monday) split 9-9 on Monsanto's Roundup Ready corn.
Under EU rules, the application now goes back to the executive European Commission, which backed it after it received a clean bill of health from EU food safety authorities last year. A commission decision is expected after September 29th.
St. Louis, MO – Metrolink is warning riders to expect delays today (Monday). That especially goes for people headed to Lambert Airport.
A section of the Metrolink tracks between Wellston and Lambert closed Sunday after a train car carrying track rails tipped and knocked over three poles. Those poles carry wires that supply Metrolink's power.
Metro spokeswoman Adella Jones says one track is open between Wellston and Lambert Airport. But she says most people will probably need to take buses from those affected stations.
