Most the canceled flights are at O'Hare International Airport.

Dow Jones industrial average trades at a new high

Tuesday, 05 March 2013 08:45 Published in National News
NEW YORK (AP) - The Dow has never been higher. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped nearly 100 points early Tuesday, reaching an all-time high, powered by China's strong economic growth targets and a jump in European retail sales.

Shortly after the opening bell the Dow was trading at 14,222. It's on track to close above its record of 14,164 reached on Oct. 9, 2007. It's up 7.8 percent for the year.

The Standard & Poor's index rose 11 points to 1,536. It's also within striking distance of its own record of 1,565. The Nasdaq was up 30 points at 3,212.

Asian markets rose as China pledged to stick to ambitious growth targets for its economy, the world's second largest. European stocks also jumped because of retail sales in the region rose sharply.

Slay and Reed cast votes in Mayoral primary

Tuesday, 05 March 2013 06:50 Published in Local News
Today is primary day in the City of St. Louis.Mayor Francis Slay lead the way by being first in line to cast his vote and hoping to lead the city for a record fourth term. Slay told reporters after voting that it was a hard-fought campaign.

Slay says, "The most important thing about the election is about leadership, competency, integrity and that's what we brought the city government and that's what we ask voters is to keep the city moving forward."

It's also the day we'll learn who will be the next mayor. That's because the winner of today's Democratic Primary will face only Green Party Candidate James McNeeley in the general election April 2nd. And city voters haven't elected a non-Democrat to the post since 1945.

The Democratic incumbent, Mayor Francis Slay is running for a record fourth term. His chief Democratic rival is Aldermanic President Lewis Reed. Both candidates spent Monday night going over their "get out the vote" efforts -- preparations that could prove critical, with rain falling when the polls opened and snow forecast for later in the day. The polls opened at 6.
