AP-MO--St.LouisRightNow 11-02 0459 AP-MO--St. Louis Right Now News of the St. Louis Region PAIN STUDY SLU study examines why blacks get less treatment for lower back pain ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Researchers at Saint Louis University want to know why blacks receive less treatment for lower back pain than whites. A team at the university will use a 900-thousand-dollar grant from New Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, which is part of the U-S Department of Health and Human Services. Lead researcher Raymond Tait says the study follows up on earlier work in which the university documented disparities in treatment for those who suffered work-related injuries. Now, researchers want to learn why. The goal is to design ways to reduce the disparities. REPUBLICANS FOR CHOICE Former Gov. Whitman to discuss Republicans for Choice Committee ST.

(AP) -- The Missouri Highway Patrol hopes to wrap up its investigation into a deputy's fatal shooting of two men within two weeks. The shooting happened October 23rd near Troy, about 50 miles north of St. Louis. The name of the deputy has not been released. The deputy tried to stop a pickup truck for speeding. The pickup allegedly tried to elude the officer by pulling into a subdivision and stopping on a driveway. The officer pulled up behind the pickup and fired shots when it moved backward toward him, killing driver Tyler Teasley and passenger Michael Brown Junior. Relatives of Teasley and Brown say Teasley simply failed to engage the truck's parking brake. USO SALUTE Event will recognize enlisted members and officers ST.
