Professional fighter nominates nurses for award
St. John's Hospital nurses Ashley Hull and Megan Simpson received the Daisy Award for the care they provided professional fighter Matt Hughes after a car he was in was hit by a train. Hughes sustained a traumatic brain injury, and doctors were surprised when he emerged from a nine-day coma.

Ill. county urges residents to get flu shots

Baby boomers are most likely to seek vaccinations, and more men and children should follow their example, Brown says.
