State Sen. Anita Yeckel Has Heart Bypass Surgery

State Sen. Anita Yeckel, R-Sunset Hills, underwent open heart bypass surgery Thursday at St. Luke's Hospital in Chesterfield. Yeckel, 54, was in satisfactory condition, a hospital spokesman said Friday. She is expected to make a complete recovery, a statement from her office said. The senator had chest pains on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday, tests showed the need for surgery, the statement said. Yeckel's district includes most of south St. Louis County. She was elected to the state Senate in November. SPRINGFIELD Rep. Wooten Moving, Won't Run For Re-election In '98 State Rep. Chuck Wooten, R-Springfield, says he won't run for re-election next year. Wooten, 69, has served five terms in the Missouri House. He is giving up his District 137 seat to move to a historic house that is just outside the area he represents. Wooten, a retired postal worker, was first elected to the House in 1988. He is a member of the House Budget Committee, where he has worked for funding for projects at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds and Southwest Missouri State University. This session, he was behind the effort to put a veterans cemetery in Springfield. Wooten said his new house is on the west side of Jefferson Street in Springfield; his district's boundary is the east side of the street. Although he will be living outside his district before his term expires in January 1999, Wooten said he may legally continue to serve and will do so. AP KANSAS CITY Workers Sorting Through Mail Truck Crash Debris Workers at the main st office in Kansas City on Friday began sorting through tubs of ash- and chemical-covered mail after the tractor-trailer hauling it crashed and burned near Quincy, Ill. About 14 large tubs of mail - mostly correspondence - was all that remained of the thousands of pieces being trucked from Kansas City to Chicago when the truck crashed Tuesday, said Rick Shaver, a postal manager. "We're hoping (the sorting) won't take more than a week to 10 days," Shaver said. "It's going to be a really dirty, labor-intensive job." The truck was about three-quarters full of personal letters, business statements, birthday cards, money orders and Priority Mail packages when it crashed. About half was burned, and the rest of it was soaked by firefighters. The driver, Ronfred O. Lawrence, 62, of Olathe, Kan., was in critical condition Friday at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield, Ill. EDITOR PROMOTED Editor Of Star Is Selected As Newspaper's Publisher Arthur S.
