Mizzou's Pressey to enter NBA draft

Wednesday, 10 April 2013 11:19 Published in Local News

Mizzou guard Phil Pressey announced he's declaring for the NBA draft.

Missouri announced Wednesday that the junior point guard has decided to hire an agent and declare for the 2013 NBA Draft.

Players who declare have until April 16 to withdraw and retain their NCAA eligibility, but Pressey’s decision to hire an agent – Creative Artists Agency – effectively shuts the door on a return to Missouri.

The trial resumes tomorrow for an East St. Louis, Illinois woman accused of animal abuse.

A pit bull puppy was found tied to her her ex-husband's pickup truck and was dragged down a St. Louis interstate.

The case now goes to the defense on Thursday after prosecutors yesterday rested their case in the bench trial of 41-year-old Benetta Johnson.

Authorities believe Johnson tried to return the dog now dubbed Trooper to her ex-husband and, according to her statement to police, told her 13-year-old son last November to put the dog in the bed of her former spouse's pickup truck.

The teen instead tied the puppy to the truck's trailer hitch, and the driver didn't see the dog and began driving down Interstate 55.

The dog survived but underwent a series of operations.

 

If your commute takes you near Hanley and Manchester Roads, you might want to try another way to get to your destination.

MSD crews are making emergency repairs to a major underground storm water sewer pipe that might have completely collapsed.

MSD says the 42-inch corrugated metal storm water sewer pipe runs under all lanes of Hanley Road. MSD says they first found out about it Tuesday when they got a report of a sinking roadway. 

Each of Hanley's outside lanes are closed to traffic south of Manchester. Some 40,000 motorists travel on Hanley every day.
