Syphilis Rates Increase in Boone County, Nationwide

Nov 19, 2015

National rates of syphilis were high last year according to the data released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday.

Two restaurants in the Columbia Mall food court are closed following numerous health code violations. The health department found the violations after responding to a report from a customer who found cockroaches in her food.

In addition to the presence of cockroaches, violations at Famous Cajun Grill and Stir Fry 88 included open containers of food, improperly stored raw food and temperature violations of cold holding units.
