Yang talks divesting from policing and prisons and reinvesting in communities hit by gun violence,

Yang answered a question from Taylor Martin and Jesse Holmes — two high school students from Washington, D.C. — about making gun violence a public health issue and reallocating resources form policing and incarceration to communities that have been harmed by it.

Yang called the criminal justice system “inhumane” and called for the end of private prisons. He said that money should go to families and communities that can create small businesses and increase the buying power of black consumers to improve neighborhoods.

We pay a “higher and darker price” by putting money towards prisons and over-policing minority communities, he said, adding, “We need to treat gun violence like a public health crisis."

Dr. Marty Makary On Why Health Care Costs Keep Skyrocketing -- And What To Do About It

Much of the conversation about contemporary American health care revolves around money more than actual medicine. But given the crushing costs associated with seemingly every aspect of the industry, that focus isn’t so surprising.

As Dr. Marty Makary of Johns Hopkins University notes in his newly published book, “The Price We Pay: What Broke American Healthcare — And How To Fix It,” one in five Americans currently has medical debt in collections.

On Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air, Makary joined host Sarah Fenske to talk about his research into why costs are skyrocketing — and what can be done to redesign the broken U.S. health care system.

Makary, who is a surgeon and professor of health policy as well as an author, joined the talk show in advance of his appearance Wednesday evening at St. Louis County Library.

Endangered Species Find A Peaceful Home On Land Used To Train For War


Fort Leonard Wood is home to more than 6,000 soldiers and at least three endangered species.

Those animals and two more that are threatened are protected and cared for despite living among shelling and other military training.

And scientists flock to the installation, saying it’s a boon to their research and gives them an opportunity to help these animals.

Fort Leonard Wood is the confirmed home of three endangered species: the spectaclecase mussel, the gray bat and the Indiana Bat. Also on base are two threatened species: the eastern hellbender salamander and the northern long-eared bat.

St. Louis Blues Raise Stanley Cup Championship Banner

The rafters at Enterprise Center have gained what St. Louis hockey fans have long sought — a Stanley Cup championship banner.

In a pregame ceremony prior to Wednesday night’s home opener, St. Louis Blues fans roared as the team raised the banner before a capacity crowd.

The ceremony began with narrated videos containing highlights of the hockey team’s historic run. Many of the videos featured players hoisting the Cup during the postgame ceremony in Boston after Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, at the championship parade down Market Street and individually, when each player had their own day to spend with the trophy.

In a darkened arena and with a dramatic puff of dry-ice smoke the banner began its slow ascent accompanied by the familiarity of “Gloria,” the song that became last season’s anthem.

New Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic In Fairview Heights Was Built In Secret


Planned Parenthood is taking a step to increase access to abortions in the metro-east and the region with a new state-of-the-art center in Fairview Heights.

Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region will expand abortion services in the new facility, providing both surgical and medication abortions. It is expected to begin seeing patients in late October.

“We are thrilled to be able to better serve our patients through this new center, both in Southern Illinois and around the region,” said Yamelsie Rodriguez, president and CEO. “Close to 5,000 people sought care at our Fairview Heights health center last year alone, and this new center will allow us to serve even more.”

The new center will replace the current Fairview Heights Health Center on Illinois 159, which offers medication abortions only. The new center, located at 317 Salem Place, previously was a medical building. Renovations have been underway for more than a year. It was built in secret to avoid delays, Planned Parenthood has acknowledged.
