Funeral arraignments set for Rep. Ike Skelton

Wednesday, 30 October 2013 14:45 Published in Local News

LEXINGTON, Mo. (AP) - Funeral services have been announced for former Missouri congressman Ike Skelton.

The Walker-Nadler-Fuller Funeral Home says visitation is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday in Grondyke Hall at Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington.

Skelton's funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at Wikoff Hall, also on the Wentworth campus. A burial service with military rites is to occur at the Machpelah Cemetery in Lexington.

Skelton died this past Monday of complications from pneumonia at a hospital in Virginia. He was 81.

Skelton served in the U.S. House for 34 years before losing re-election in 2010. He never served in the military but was chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and a staunch advocate for the armed forces.

 

More than a dozen cars involved in pile-up on I-70

Wednesday, 30 October 2013 13:26 Published in Local News

A massive pile up on Interstate 70 in downtown St. Louis today involved more than a dozen cars, but miraculously, no one was seriously hurt.

Shortly after 5 AM there were two separate accidents in the depressed section of the highway. The accidents involved several cars and a semi truck. Emergency crews were forced to shut down a section of the interstate to clear the wreckage. Police have not released an official cause of the crash.

But the roads were wet and there was fog in the area so those conditions could have played a role.
