Metro-east town latest to mull allowing chickens

Wednesday, 14 August 2013 03:36 Published in Local News

   A metro-east village is considering an ordinance that would allow residents to raise poultry.

   The Alton Telegraph reports that Godfrey trustees early next month will consider an ordinance related to raising chickens on property zoned as residential. The Godfrey measure is patterned at least partly after one in nearby Alton.

   Godfrey resident Kenny Feazel is hungry for the change. Unaware they were illegal, he's been raising chickens since April to have fresh, organic eggs because his wife is too sensitive to store-bought ones. The couple also raises their eight chickens to produce fertilizer for their organic garden.

   A Feazel neighbor complained about the birds, prompting Grafton officials to take a look at the issue.

   Godfrey lies along the Mississippi River in Madison County, north of St. Louis.

 

 

More questions raised over County PD crime lab contracts

Wednesday, 14 August 2013 03:14 Published in Local News

   More questions are being raised over contracts for the new St. Louis County Police Crime Lab.  

   At Tuesday night's St. Louis County Council meeting, Councilman Gregg Quinn (R-Ballwin) called for an inquiry into the $3.75 million contract awarded to a company co-owned by Police Board Chairman Gregory Sansone.  SM Mechanical, LLC was hired by the general contractor to install the ventilation system at the new crime lab.

   Last week, County Police Chief Tim Fitch asked the FBI to investigate the deal.  Fitch had questioned the subcontracting process earlier this year, but County counsel Patricia Redington ruled that the situation didn't violate the conflict of interest provisions in the county charter.

   Quinn says the County Charter specifically prohibits appointed officials from benefiting financially from such contracts.

   County Executive Charlie Dooley responded to the concerns by proposing legislation Tuesday night that would modify county ordinances to hold subcontractors to the same ethical standards as contractors. 

   Dooley told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he's disappointed that Chief Fitch went to the FBI instead of coming to him with his concerns.

 

Cards beat Pirates in 5 hr, 14 inning game; move to within 2

Wednesday, 14 August 2013 02:19 Published in Sports

   Backup outfielder Adron Chambers singled home the winning run in the 14th inning as the Cardinals outlasted the Pittsburgh Pirates and cut into their NL Central lead with a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night.

   Sam Freeman (1-0) allowed a walk in a scoreless 14th for the Cardinals, who saddled the Pirates with their fourth straight loss and pulled within two games of them with a win in the 4-hour, 55-minute game.

   Pittsburgh had four hits the first time through the order against Adam Wainwright and led 3-0 after two innings on homers by Andrew McCutchen and Jordy Mercer. They had six hits the rest of the way.

   Both teams had chances in extra innings before the Cardinals, who had dropped four of five, cashed in.

   Jon Jay singled off Jared Hughes (2-3) with one out in the 14th with his fourth hit. Jay stole second and then raced home and beat left fielder Starling Marte's throw.
