Pats player Hernandez taken from home in handcuffs

Wednesday, 26 June 2013 08:32 Published in National News

 NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been taken from his home in handcuffs after a Boston semi-pro football player was found dead in an industrial park a mile from his house.

 

   Family members say the dead man, 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, was dating a woman whose sister is Hernandez's fiancee. Officials ruled the death a homicide but did not say how Lloyd died.

 

   It's unclear why Hernandez was being taken into custody Wednesday morning and put into the back of a marked police car.

 

   State police have searched in and around Hernandez's home in North Attleborough several times. At least three search warrants have been issued in connection with the investigation.

 

   Hernandez attorney Michael Fee hasn't discussed the investigation.

Azarenka pulls out of Wimbledon with injury

Wednesday, 26 June 2013 08:31 Published in Sports

 LONDON (AP) - Second-seeded Victoria Azarenka has pulled out of Wimbledon after hurting her right knee in her opening-round win.

 

   Early in the second set of her match against Maria Joao Koehler, Azarenka did the splits near the baseline, then crumpled to the grass, clutching her right knee and sobbing.

 

   Azarenka recovered after a medical timeout to finish out the 6-1, 6-2 victory on Monday but she moved gingerly after falling and said she wasn't sure about the extent of the injury.

 

   On Wednesday, minutes before her second-round match against Flavia Pennetta was to begin, she pulled out of the match.

 

   Considered one of Serena Williams' toughest matchups, Azarenka has won the last two Australian Opens and had reached the semifinals in her last two Wimbledon appearances.

 

Environmental groups protest landfill use

Tuesday, 25 June 2013 11:30 Published in Local News

Three environmental groups are joining forces and calling for the protection of Missouri's waterways. The Sierra Club, the Missouri Coalition for the Environment, and the Labadie Environmental Organization met near the banks of the Mississippi Tuesday morning. They are all worried about toxic landfills that lie in flood plains near the Mississippi, Missouri and Meramec Rivers. Among their concerns is a proposal by Ameren to build a coal-ash landfill near the Labadie power plant in Franklin County. 

Tonight in Union, Missouri, The Missouri Public Service Commission is holding a hearing about Ameren's proposal to build that coal-ash landfill. That meeting is at East Central College at 6:00pm.

In related news, the EPA will host a meeting at Pattonville High School tonight to discuss the results of a radiological detecting airplane that flew over the West Lake Landfill in March. The EPA will also discuss the results from groundwater testing conducted in April.
