May be Friday before power restored in some areas

Thursday, 26 December 2013 01:58 Published in National News
   LITCHFIELD, Maine (AP) — Some people in the United States and Canada who've been without electricity since Saturday may not get their lights back on for another day.
   That could change as more snow creeps into Maine and parts of Michigan and cold temperatures keep ice from melting off power lines and tree branches, posing new risks for outages.
   Utilities are advising customers that restoration efforts are being slowed by fallen trees.
   Tens of thousands of homes were still without power on Wednesday in Michigan, down from more than 500,000 at the storm's peak. Maine had about 60,000 without power, down from more than 100,000.
   Canadian utility officials warned that some customers could be without power until Saturday.
   The storm that started Saturday and continued Monday is being blamed for at least 27 deaths.

Rams claim they've overcharged fans, ask for tax refund

Thursday, 26 December 2013 01:46 Published in Local News

   The St. Louis Rams are again asking the state of Missouri to refund some of the taxes they've paid.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the team has filed six appeals since 2008 asking for a total of $4.7 million.  

   This time, the team is claiming it collected too much in taxes from ticket buyers -- about 40 cents per $100 ticket.  The paper reports Rams attorneys have filed a tax appeal asking for a $401,000 refund.  And they want the state to forgive another $445,000.  

   The Rams say they discovered they've been charging state sales taxes on base ticket prices plus city taxes.

   The team admits it can't return the money to ticket buyers.
