NWS Storm Spotter training classes offered

Friday, 07 February 2014 02:14 Published in Local News
   Storm spotters play an important role in monitoring the weather around the St. Louis area, especially during the spring storm season.  The National Weather Service is gearing up for spring by offering Storm Spotter training classes across the metro area.  
   The next class is Saturday at 9:00 a.m. at the Justice Center in St. Peters.  But if you want to be a registered storm spotter and can't make the class, there are 16 others scheduled across the metro area before the end of March.
   The classes are free and open to everyone, but only those who are high school age or older can sign up as a volunteer storm spotter.  Registration isn't required for most classes.  Check the National Weather Service's storm spotter class schedule for more information: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=schedule.

Afghan Taliban say they captured NATO military dog

Friday, 07 February 2014 01:35 Published in National News
   KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The Taliban say they have captured a military dog belonging to NATO forces in Afghanistan, releasing a video of the canine wearing a high-tech harness.
   Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said Friday that the dog was captured during a battle about a month ago in Laghman province, east of the capital, Kabul.
   The insurgents sent by email a video showing a brown dog held on a leash by a Taliban fighter. It wore a harness mounted with a video camera and a voiceover said the dog was being called "Colonel."
   Mujahid said by telephone that the dog is in good health and is not being mistreated.
   The NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan confirmed Friday that one of its military dogs went missing during a mission in December. It gave no other details.

St. Louis pops conductor Richard Hayman dies

Thursday, 06 February 2014 04:22 Published in Local News
   ST. LOUIS (AP) - Richard Hayman, longtime pops conductor for the St. Louis Symphony and other symphonies around North America, has died.
   The St. Louis Symphony says Hayman died Wednesday. He was 93 and had been recently placed in hospice care in New York, but a cause of death was not released.
   Hayman became the symphony's principal pops conductor in 1976. He held similar posts in Detroit, Hartford, Conn., and in Calgary and London in Canada.
   Hayman was chief arranger for the Boston Pops Orchestra for more than 30 years, under both Arthur Fiedler and John Williams. He also worked in Hollywood, orchestrating and arranging for films such as "Girl Crazy," `'Meet Me in St. Louis," and others.
   Funeral arrangements are not complete.
