  • Could Queen of Hearts Drawings Be Illegal?Could Queen of Hearts Drawings Be Illegal?

    BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) — A newspaper investigation has found that at least a dozen raffles conducted largely by veterans’ organizations in southwest Illinois may not be in accordance with state law. The Belleville News-Democrat says its investigation revealed that some Queen of Hearts raffles appear to violate parts of the state’s Raffles and Poker Runs Act. The investigation also found ordinances in cities hosting raffles don’t appear to be consistent with state law or enforced. Gambling critics and experts say if state laws aren’t followed or enforced it could lead to issues, including the government seizing prize money. The raffles started gaining popularity over the last two years. Players buy tickets in hopes of being drawn to choose a playing card from a board. If the player gets the queen of hearts they win the jackpot. If not, the game continues with an increasing jackpot. Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

  • Scouting For Food Donations Approach Two MillionScouting For Food Donations Approach Two Million

    ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The grand total is 1.98 million food items collected by St. Louis area Boy Scouts for this year’s “Scouting For Food” drive. Greater St. Louis Area Council Scout Executive Ron Green says more than a million blue plastic bags were handed out last weekend, for people to fill up and place on their doorsteps this weekend, “We even experienced, in one neighborhood, some homes that didn’t have bags out, and when they saw the Scouts collecting (on Saturday), they literally came out of their houses with food for the Scouts to take.” All the donated non-perishables will be given to local food pantries. Green says those who missed the opportunity may drop-off donations at any of 44 MERS Goodwill stores through November 25th. He figures those donations will push this year’s total over two million. Last year’s “Scouting For Food” effort brought in a record 2.25 million items. Green says the lessons learned from the annual service project are immeasurable, “Whether they stay in Scouting or not, our young people are instilled with the value of doing service for others. I think that stays with them for a lifetime.”

  • AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young dies at 64AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young dies at 64

    Watch Video AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young has died after battling dementia for several years, the band announced Saturday. He was 64. Young died at home with his family at this bedside, the band said in a statement. Young, along with his brother Angus, founded the legendary rock band in 1975 in Australia. “Renowned for his musical prowess Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer and visionary who inspired many,” the statement said. “From the outset, he knew what he wanted to achieve and, along with his younger brother, took to the world stage giving their all at every show. Nothing less would do for their fans.” Young played rhythm guitar to Angus’ lead, and his driving riffs and mop-top hair were signatures of the band’s sound and image for decades. Angus Young, in a separate statement added that Malcolm took “great pride in all that he endeavored.” “His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed,” he wrote. “As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever.” Young left AC/DC in 2014 after the band said he had been struggling with an undisclosed ailment, later revealed to be dementia. He was replaced by his nephew, Stevie Young, for the band’s world tour in 2015. “He was older than me — I always looked up to him,” Angus Young said of his brother in an interview last year with Rolling Stone Magazine, saying he was “always one to battle through.” “He would look at me in times of crisis and go, ‘We’ll just go in and do some work. We’ll sit and write some songs,'” he said. “He had that drive, and I feel obligated to keep it going, maybe because I was there in the beginning with him.” Rock and roll royalty AC/DC was inducted in 2003 into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, which described its sound as “scorched-earth, metallic hard rock which has rarely deviated from a template of headbanging-inducing guitar riffs, flashy drums and banshee-yell vocals.” “In the process, AC/DC have carved out a niche somewhere between hard rock and heavy metal that’s been an inspiration to aspiring musicians — and given us crank-up-the-volume radio staples ‘Back In Black,’ ‘Highway to Hell’ and ‘You Shook Me All Night Long,'” the hall of fame notes on its website. The band is also one of the best-selling in music history, according to the Recording Industry Association of America, having sold more than 70 million albums in the US. The band’s original lead singer, Bon Scott, died in 1980. He was replaced by Brian Johnson. Young’s fellow musicians, as well as rock n’ roll fans, voiced their condolences Saturday on Twitter. “RIP Malcolm Young,” wrote singer-songwriter Ryan Adams. “He was the founding member of AC/DC & the engine that roared behind the most powerful band in the world.” Guitarist Eddie Van Halen said “it is a sad day in rock and roll.” AC/DC plans to create a memorial website at which fans can send messages to Malcolm Young’s survivors, including his wife, O’Linda; children, Cara and Ross; son-in-law, Josh; three grandchildren; and his sister and brother. The family asked that in lieu of flowers, fans donate to The Salvation Army. By Marilia Brocchetto and Dakin Andone, CNN

  • Ceremony at courthouse leaves children and adults smilingCeremony at courthouse leaves children and adults smiling

    EDWARDSVILLE, IL - The Madison County Courthouse was packed Saturday morning.  Dozens of families joined a celebration marking National Adoption Day.  Hon. David Hylla, Chief Circuit Judge for Illinois’ 3rd Judicial District called it, “The happiest day in the courthouse.” Several judges finalized adoptions during an event that included gifts for children, face painting and visits from superheroes dressed in costumes. One of the law firms playing a leading role in a majority of Saturday’s adoption is Crouse Cobb & Bays.  Susan Crouse Wolk is a paralegal with the firm and also recently adopted a child. “People will come up to me all the time and say, oh your daughter is so lucky you adopted her.  I’m the lucky one,” said Crouse Wolk. Dr. Kimberly Jackson made the adoption of her 4-year-old son Jacob official. “The fact I have that opportunity feels like a pleasure and an honor to me,” she said. The event included foster, private and adult adoptions. There are more than 100,000 children in the foster care system in the United States, according to Hylla.  The judge said Saturday’s ceremony is the biggest adoption event in Missouri and Illinois. “The kids really need to have families to teach them all about life and guide them.” Said Crouse Wolk. Organizers say having a day to celebrate adoption helps make an unforgettable event even more memorable.

  • Top general says he’d push back against ‘illegal’ nuclear strike orderTop general says he’d push back against ‘illegal’ nuclear strike order

    The top US nuclear commander said Saturday he would push back against an order from President Donald Trump for a nuclear strike if it were “illegal.” Speaking at the Halifax International Security Forum in Nova Scotia, Canada, Gen. John Hyten, who is the commander of US Strategic Command, shared what would happen if he were ordered to launch a nuclear strike. “I provide advice to the President,” Hyten said. “He’ll tell me what to do, and if it’s illegal, guess what’s going to happen? I’m gonna say, ‘Mr. President, that’s illegal.’ Guess what he’s going to do? He’s going to say, ‘What would be legal?’ And we’ll come up with options of a mix of capabilities to respond to whatever the situation is, and that’s the way it works. It’s not that complicated.” US Strategic Command oversees US nuclear weapons and missile defense. Hyten’s remarks come after a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing this week on the President’s authority to launch nuclear weapons — the first such congressional hearing in more than 40 years. While the President retains that authority, Hyten publicly emphasized that the US military always has the obligation to follow only legal orders, including those entailing the launch of nuclear weapons. At the Senate hearing this week, experts testified that the use of nuclear weapons must be proportional to a threat, and the Pentagon has extensive options for use of conventional weapons against North Korea. “We are concerned that the President of the United States is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic that he might order a nuclear weapons strike that is wildly out of step with US national security interests,” said US Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut. Republican members of the committee were less blunt in their criticism of Trump’s judgment but did seek assurances that there are legal and strategic oversight measures in place to prevent the rash use of nuclear weapons. Ultimately, some of those who testified warned against legislative changes to rein in the President’s authority to exercise nuclear authority. Brian McKeon, who served as principal deputy undersecretary of defense for policy in the Obama administration, told the committee: “I think hard cases make bad law, and I think if we were to change the decision-making process in some way because of a distrust of this President, I think that would be an unfortunate precedent.” By Daniella Diaz, CNN

  • Cost of a Thanksgiving meal drops for second straight yearCost of a Thanksgiving meal drops for second straight year

    ARKANSAS -- The cost of a Thanksgiving feast is the cheapest it has been since 2015, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation. The organization has surveyed the average cost of a Thanksgiving Day meal since 1986. For the 32nd year, AFBF found the national average for the Thanksgiving meal for ten people to be just over $49, or about 1.5% cheaper than in 2016. This marked the second consecutive year that the cost has declined. American Farm Bureau Federation Walmart has since released a Thanksgiving dinner menu of its own with prices found on items inside its stores. The list includes some store brand items: Butterball Frozen Turkey - $0.98 per lb. (14 lbs = $13.72) Great Value Turkey or Brown Gravy Mix - $0.52 (x2 = $1.04) Great Value Cornbread Stuffing - $0.75 (x 3 = $2.25) Sweet Potatoes - $2.94 (x 1 three lb bag = $2.94) Marketside Hawaiian Style Rolls - $2.50 (x3 = $5.00) Great Value Green Beans – $0.50 (x 4 = $2.00) Fresh Cranberries - $1.98 for 12 oz (x1 = $1.98) Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pie - $2.97 (x1 = $2.97) Whipped Cream - $1.24 (x1 = $1.24) Total = $33.14 before tax The retail giant also recommended Thanksgiving meal shoppers beat the last minute crowds, especially on the Monday before Thanksgiving Day, which has been Walmart's biggest day for turkey sales. According to the survey, turkey saw one of the largest drops in price since last year. The Farm Bureau attributed the decrease to continued large inventory in cold storage.

  • Missouri seeks input on how to spend $41M from VolkswagenMissouri seeks input on how to spend $41M from Volkswagen

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The state of Missouri is looking for input on how to spend $41 million from a national settlement with Volkswagen over the automaker’s emissions cheating scandal. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that options include buying electric vehicles and electric charging stations for the state. Missouri got the money after it was discovered that Volkswagen violated federal clean air laws by equipping diesel vehicles with devices to cheat emissions tests. The German company settled with the U.S. Department of Justice for $14 billion in 2016. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources now is holding public hearings across the state to gather residents’ input on what to do with the state’s share of the settlement money. Upcoming hearings are scheduled for Nov. 30 in Springfield and Dec. 7 in Jefferson City. ___ Information from: St. Louis Post-Dispatch, http://www.stltoday.com

The Kansas City Star reported that former Speaker Tim Jones, a Republican who left the House in 2014, transferred about $650,000 raised from campaign contributors into a PAC called Leadership for America. Jones is the sole donor. While the PAC donated around $18,000 to charities and $10,000 to GOP candidates this year, the Star reported that it also spent heavily on golf outings, travel, liquor, cigars and other expenses, potentially violating the prohibition against using campaign money for personal business. Jones used Twitter to dismiss questions surrounding his PAC, calling The Star report a “defamatory hit job.”

  • Francis Howell Swimmer Will Spend Her Winter Break In GhanaFrancis Howell Swimmer Will Spend Her Winter Break In Ghana

    ST. CHARLES, Mo (KMOX) – Reagan Cathcart worked for months to gather two pick-up truck loads of soccer balls, cleats, jerseys and warmups, that are currently being delivered to Ghana. Just a few days after Christmas, she’ll be reunited with the soccer equipment and be able to hand it out to hundreds of kids near the city of Yendi. The Francis Howell High School sophomore is going with a group of 50 people, many of whom work in the medical field, as part of the semi-annual Care4Ghana mission trip. They’ll be gone for more than a week, carrying out medical procedures such as hernia repairs, thyroid surgery, c-sections, and anything else that comes through the hospital door. Dr. Patricia Limpert, a breast surgeon at St. Luke’s Hospital, has gone on both of Care 4 Ghana’s first two mission trips. She said in 2013 they performed 70 surgeries on one trip, then in 2016 it was up to 100. Her husband, Dr. Jonathan Limpert, is a surgeon at Mercy Hospital in Washington, Mo., and was one of the mission’s organizers. He works with Cathcart’s uncle, and when he met Cathcart’s father, he suggested his daughter may be willing to contribute to the next trip. “In return for going, I would have to do a service project,” Cathcart says. “And along the way I heard that kids over there just go bananas for this soccer thing.” Cathcart’s athletic expertise rests in the swimming pool, as a member of the 2nd place in 200 Yard Freestyle Relay team in last year’s Missouri State Finals. But she recruited the help of the Francis Howell soccer programs, Soccer Master and the community to help gather the soccer equipment. “We’ve tried in the past to get different (soccer) equipment for them, different balls, shoes, uniforms and just haven’t been as successful,” Patricia Limpert says. “Now, Reagan has probably 30 totes of equipment that we are going to be able to take to that school.” The soccer equipment is currently inside a 40-foot cargo crate, on a nearly two-month boat trip from the U.S. to Ghana. Limpert says it costs about $15,000 to transport all of their medical supplies and food for the week. And when it makes port in Ghana, it will still take about a month to get it 400 miles north to Yendi. It isn’t the first time Howell has donated its lightly used soccer gear. In an episode of ABC’s “The Amazing Race” you can see a local from the east African country of Zanzibar wearing a Vikings t-shirt. @FrancisHowell I was watching the Amazing Race and this kid from Zanzibar had an interesting shirt, thought you should see pic.twitter.com/pJXRMQLhHm — Joey Holzen (@JoeyHolzen) April 15, 2017 While Cathcart is in Ghana she’ll be in the operating room, observing and learning. She’ll be transporting patients from their village to the hospital and back. She’ll help the nurses chart medical information, care for the new born babies and even entertain the kids with balloon animals. The medical work will last for about four and a half days. Then on the last day, they’ll deliver the soccer gear. Cathcart plans to pursue a career in medicine, possibly Neurology. This trip will not only give her a look into a possible future, but also a chance to find a passion for medicine. “I just really like the aspect of helping people,” Cathcart says. Limpert is looking forward to working with Cathcart during each step. “It’s going to be just awesome to be able to have that one-on-one time with her and really teach her just the cool thing about what the world of medicine can be,” Limpert says. “Because truly you have to have the passion in today’s world.” Follow us on Twitter | Like us on Facebook

    HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - For the last three years, one man has made it his mission to help others. Now he's being recognized for his good deeds by the Queen of England. Rodney Smith Jr. has mowed over 2,000 lawns for free in the three years since he decided to devote himself to helping the elderly, disabled, veterans, and single mothers. What started with a goal of cutting 40 lawns, turned into the Raising Men Lawn Care Service, an organization with eight chapters around the United States that benefit not only the homeowners but also the young men and women who learn about "accomplishment, appreciation and purpose which comes from giving selflessly," according to Smith Jr. His personal mission now includes the help of 150 kids across the country. They've all taken the pledge to be a shining example in their communities, helping those that need it while teaching the kids the importance of giving back. Smith Jr.'s selfless work hasn't gone unnoticed. Last week he flew home to Bermuda to receive the Queen's Award and Badge of Honor, presented by the Governor of Bermuda on the Queen of England's behalf. "It makes me feel good to see that the Queen has recognized everything we've done so far," Smith Jr. told WHNT. "God works in mysterious ways. He shows you what He wants to be done, and He's told me He wants me to do all of this, so I'm just listening to Him." What's next in his journey? Smith Jr. says he's still waiting for that answer. "I don't know yet. He hasn't told me yet. But hopefully soon," he said. It's been a big venture, something Smith Jr. says he never expected. "I saw an elderly man cutting his grass and decided to pull over and help him out," he said. "That night I went home and decided to cut grass for the elderly, disabled, veterans and single mothers. I never thought it would grow into a foundation and inspire kids to do the same thing." The community following for Raising Men Lawn Care has grown to more than 58,000 people from all over the world that have supported and encouraged him along the way. Raising Men Lawn Care does more than mow lawns.  If you'd like to know more about how they are helping the homeless this winter, click here.

  • Japanese rail company sincerely apologizes after train leaves 20 seconds earlyJapanese rail company sincerely apologizes after train leaves 20 seconds early

    TOKYO – The Tsukuba Express was scheduled to depart Tokyo for Tsukuba at 9:44:40. Instead, it left at 9:44:20. If you’re thinking, “the horror!” then you’ll be glad to hear that management for the Japanese rail company has formally apologized for the train’s 20-seconds-early departure. “The crew did not sufficiently check the departure time and performed the departure operation,” it said in an official statement and “sincere” apology that led to bemusement on the internet. “I once had an Israeli bus driver laugh at me after he closed the door on my hips and drove off with my legs hanging out of the bus. I am so envious of Japan right now,” one person tweeted. The BBC reports that it’s “rare” for trains in Japan to be off-schedule, and another tweet highlights that fact, noting, “Have been on a train in Japan where I heard an apology for the train running one minute late.” The statement notes that there were no official customer complaints lodged about the early departure from a station just north of Tokyo, but apologizes if any customers missed the train by 20 seconds and were forced to wait for the next one—four minutes later, reports Bloomberg. Yahoo News UK notes that Japan’s trains are “among the most reliable in the world,” offering a mournful comparison to Britain, where “commuters are only too acquainted with the daily frustration of late trains on the way to work.” And the New York Daily News notes things aren’t much better in that newspaper’s fair city, where subway delays collectively add up to 34,900 hours on the average weekday. The Japanese company’s apology “is exactly what Japan is about,” sums up one Twitter user. (Meanwhile, in NYC’s transit department, leaking corpses on the job.)

  • Deadly sugar addiction – why carbs, not fats, are the problemDeadly sugar addiction – why carbs, not fats, are the problem

    ST. LOUIS -- Some doctors say sugar may be the number one killer in America right now. That may sound like a stretch, but you can see why they make that claim. Diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and obesity can all be partially attributed to too much sugar. Mike Norton, 51, had been an athlete most of his life. He thought he was doing everything right with diet and exercise, but then he suffered a heart attack just over five years ago. “I consumed carbs all the time, not knowing that they were bad for you until I had some medical issues, then I found out otherwise,” he said. Norton was a ticking time bomb. “I know factually it was my diet,” he said. Norton thought he was eating healthy: low fat, low calories, but loads of carbs – which means lots of sugar. “Load up on pasta before a run or a ride,” he said. “So that’s what I did and I did that for decades. After I finished eating a heavy carb meal, within an hour I was hungry, so I would eat more. And it was self-perpetuating.” That is one of the main symptoms of a carb addict. You can't stop eating, especially after a high carb big meal, because carbs turn into sugar. If some sugar sensitive people have just one piece of candy, they have intense cravings for more. So after his health scare, Norton cut out all carbs and started eating fattier, more calorie dense foods. “My energy level is much higher. My mental acuity. My weight has gone down about 25 pounds and I have sustained that weight loss,” he said. And his test results back that up. “I was a pre-diabetic. I’m not anymore. My cholesterol is down tremendously since being on this diet,” Norton said. Dr. Rick Lehman, Orthopedic Surgeon and Director with the U.S. Center for Sports Medicine in Kirkwood, works with athletes every day. And he agrees that sugar addiction is a big problem. “I think sugar in and of itself is one of the worst foods you can possibly eat,” he said. Research shows that sugar affects the brain in the same ways as cocaine or heroin. Scans show identical areas of the brain light up when exposed to drugs or sugar. “Sugar addiction is really no different than opioid addiction. People have looked at all these things that are similar to opioid addiction,” Lehman said. “It’s a real effort, it’s not as easy as saying, ‘Hey, I’m going to eat junk food.’” So how did all the companies get it so wrong with the low-fat craze? The American Medical Association Journal reported last year sugar companies paid researchers in the 1960s and 1970s to downplay the role sugar has on health. And with that research, the blame shifted to fatty foods. So to make low fat foods taste better, sugar-based additives were put in most everything. “When we all believed that fats are bad and carbs were good, so we were eating low-fat cookies and low-fat food, and what happened to America? We got immense. We got giant,” Lehman said. And for people like Norton, who have cut carbs out, life has gotten so much sweeter. “For me personally, it’s all about quality of life. I now have the ability to exercise at not quite the intensity I once did, but without worrying about having a heart attack,” Norton said. “So for me, that gave me a level of freedom that I didn’t have prior to being on this diet.” Of course, some say that sugar addiction is a cop-out for people who simply lack the will power to say no to certain foods. Doctors said that's the same excuse made in the 70s as research started coming out about smoking. When you engineer foods to make you dependent upon them, you can really see how hard it is for some people to stop.

  • Father finds man in teen girl’s closet with her underwear and pictures, police sayFather finds man in teen girl’s closet with her underwear and pictures, police say

    PHOENIX – A Phoenix father came home to find a man inside his daughter’s closet with the girl’s underwear and pictures, according to KTVK. Police arrested Michael Zabalza Ruelas, of Glendale, who is facing one count of second-degree burglary. Police said on Thursday, Nov. 9, the family arrived home when they noticed their dog was barking at the closet. The father went to investigate and found Ruelas inside with photos of his 16-year-old daughter, her underwear and lotion, police said. The father then threatened to hit Ruelas with a crowbar and he took off out of the house, court documents said. He then drove away and the mother was able to get his license plate number, police said. Officers later spotted the suspect driving by the house and he was pulled over. After being arrested, police said Ruelas admitted to getting into the house through a window and “collected panties from different laundry baskets inside the house.” Ruelas said he took some of the underwear with him when he left the house, and the clothing items were inside the car when he was pulled over, according to police. He made his first court appearance and bond was set at $3,500. He’s had several run-ins with the law, including DUI, false reporting and failure to appear for a driving on a suspended license charge.

  • Couple shot in church while discussing gun safety, police sayCouple shot in church while discussing gun safety, police say

    A call to police about “shots fired” at a church in eastern Tennessee turned out to be an accidental shooting during a discussion on using weapons to protect the congregation, police say. Tellico Plains Police Chief Russ Parks told CNN affiliate WVLT that the initial call on Thursday reported two people shot outside the First United Methodist Church and that an “active shooter situation” was underway. Nearby schools were placed on lockdown according to the police Facebook page. When police arrived, they found two people with minor gunshot wounds inside a fellowship hall at the church. Chief Parks said Wayne Reid, 81, was showing his unloaded handgun to other members of the church during a luncheon where the conversation turned to “bringing guns to church and protecting themselves.” Reid apparently reloaded the gun and put it in a holster, then was asked again to show the weapon. When he pulled it out the gun went off in his lap, according to police. Reid and his wife Kathy were injured in the incident. The family told WVLT that “the bullet only grazed (Kathy’s) stomach,” and that she suffered a broken arm. Wayne Reid was injured in the hand. Police ruled the shooting accidental. It comes less than two weeks after a gunman killed 25 people and an unborn child at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas.

It will feature jazz, blues, poetry and storytelling.

    Earlier this week during an intense fire at a warehouse in south St. Louis, St. Louis Fire Deputy Chief Brian Walsh called for a fire engine to sound its horn – an audible signal telling firefighters to get out of the building and away from the fire. “That evacuation call saved lives,” said Capt. Garon Mosby of the St. Louis Fire Department. “That evacuation was probably one of the best things happening because we had members on the roof and quite a few members in the basement.” Mosby joined St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh to give an update on the warehouse fire, recount the ordeal and address more broadly the dangers firefighters face. As of noon Friday, the warehouse continued to burn. “We still have crews on the scene pouring just a tremendous amount of war,” Mosby said. The basement – where the fire started – had only two access points. Recounting the moments before a tremendous amount of energy caused a wall to collapse on a firetruck, Mosby said that it was “one of the

Though the virtuoso performer has been hailed as a successor to such greats as Ella Fitzgerald and Betty Carter, she is very much a contemporary singer. Salvant, a Haitian-American who grew up in Miami, has grown to love jazz standards, show tunes and songs many might miss, like the Kurt Weill/Langston Hughes piece "Somehow I Could Never Believe."

    ST. LOUIS (AP) – St. Louis police officers will be required each month to read and acknowledge an order reiterating the rights of journalists. The move comes after the St. Louis Post-Dispatch met with city and police officials to discuss officer-journalist relationships. One of the newspaper’s reporters was arrested in September while covering civil unrest downtown. Police commanders can use their discretion to grant journalists select privileges at a scene so long as the officers’ duties and the safety of other members of the public won’t be compromised. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Friday the police order states that journalists must be provided at least the same access others are given. The police department also will send all officers an advisory asking them to allow journalists to do their jobs and increase officer training in dealing with journalists.

    ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) – A judge has agreed to once again push back the trial date for a St. Louis-area woman accused of fatally shooting a man to shift attention away from herself in another killing. A new trial date for Pamela Hupp will be set within 10 days. Hupp is accused of killing 33-year-old Louis Gumpenberger at her O’Fallon home in 2016. Her trial was first scheduled for last month, then April. Her attorneys requested another delay because they say they have yet to receive all of the evidence. Hupp is accused of trying to make it appear Gumpenberger sought to kidnap her and recover $150,000 in insurance money she received after her friend, Betsy Faria, was killed in 2011. Betsy Faria’s husband believes Hupp should be investigated in his wife’s death. (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

About 2,000 AT&T employees vacated the building in September. The building, previously owned by Chicago-based InvenTrust Properties Corp., was placed into receivership earlier this year after U.S. Bank National Association Trustee sued its former owner and seized it.

  • Congressman Davis Says Standard Deductions Will Double Under Tax BillCongressman Davis Says Standard Deductions Will Double Under Tax Bill

    ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Illinois congressman Rodney Davis says the house tax bill is not about politics or the legacy of Republicans and Democrats. It’s about middle-class Americans who have not seen a tax break in more than 30 years. Davis says tax brackets are lowered and the standard deduction is doubled. “That means 90 to 95 percent of my constituents in central and southwestern Illinois are going to take the standard deduction. They can take it on a postcard, because that’s the only math they’re going to have to do,” he says. The Davis’s statement says in his district, a family of four making the median income of $78,509 will see a tax cut of $1691, and the first $45,000 of an individual’s income and $90,000 for joint filers will be taxed at 12 percent.

    While selecting images for the art show “On the Street Where I Live,” Amanda Verbeck of Pele Prints saw certain themes emerge in artists submissions: impermanence, restlessness, transition and instability. She wants the show at Webster Arts to explore the places where people live and their relationships with their neighbors. “When we think about a street where we live, we’re talking about home, we’re talking about place, we’re talking about all these that affect our environment – nature environment or social environment,” Verbeck said. “Those are both really important points to me, to not only have [the show] reflect the social context in which we live, but also the physical context in which we live.” Those themes emerged even though artists who submitted work for the show hail from more than 17 states.

    Classical Indian dance is a traditional art form with roots in India that date back over 2,000 years. The rhythmic dance often tells stories with body movements, facial expressions and symbolic clothing. On Thursday’s St. Louis on the Air , host Don Marsh talked to Dances of India members about the history and tradition of their dance. The company was founded in St. Louis in 1976 and was the first of its kind established in Missouri. “What really distinguishes it from other art forms around the world is the depth and range of expression in storytelling – because that’s so integral to the art form,” Nartana Premachandra, dancer and president of Dances of India, said. The intricate depths of the facial expressions and body movements are meant to transmit stories to an audience not able to read. Theckla Mehta, artistic co-director of Dances of India, danced throughout her life. She said she became interested and then astonished by Indian dancing when her Indian husband took her to a
