SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A Springfield zookeeper will be laid to rest near St. Louis on Tuesday.

 

   The funeral for 62-year-old John Bradford will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday at Dietrich-Mothershead Funeral Home in De Soto, southwest of St. Louis. A visitation will be held at the funeral home from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday.

Peabody Energy to pay $310 million to miners' union

Thursday, 10 October 2013 10:07 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Coal producer Peabody Energy Corp. says it will pay hundreds of millions of dollars to settle a drawn-out legal dispute over health-care and pension benefits for thousands of retirees of bankrupt Peabody spinoff Patriot Coal Corp. The St. Louis-based companies and the United Mine Workers of America union announced the deal late Wednesday and say it will be submitted for consideration to a St. Louis federal bankruptcy judge overseeing Patriot's bankruptcy. As part of the deal, Peabody will pay $310 million over four years to fund the health and pension benefits to settle all claims by Patriot and the miners' union. Peabody also will provide about $140 million in letters of credit to Patriot, which expects to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy by the end of this year.
