UPDATE: STL plow crews finish with side streets

Thursday, 09 January 2014 16:57 Published in Local News
   St. Louis officials are waiting to see if city residents can navigate their neighborhoods a little better now that the side streets have been plowed.  
   After nearly a foot of snow fell last weekend, followed by sub-zero cold, many residents complained that the streets in their neighborhoods were impassable. So Mayor Francis Slay announced Thursday that it was time for the city to experiment with plowing those side streets.  At a press conference, Slay said, "Too many people have been getting stuck on these side streets.  Too many people cannot get off their streets. They’re angry, and I hear them."
   In a Twitter post this morning, Slay's chief of staff Jeff Rainford wrote that the plows had finished about 4 a.m.   Rainford indicated they cut a single row down the middle of each street in an effort to make the streets passable without burying the cars parked along the curbs.
   The city is asking for feedback on change. City residents are invited to share their opinion here.
 

Lawsuit challenging same-sex tax filing rule in Missouri

Thursday, 09 January 2014 15:46 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A lawsuit is challenging Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon's order that the state accept jointly filed tax returns from same-sex couples legally married in other states.
 
Nixon said the directive applies to tax filing status and doesn't authorize same-sex marriage. The Missouri Constitution states only marriages between a man and a woman are valid in the state.
 
The lawsuit asks Nixon's order be declared unconstitutional. It was filed by officials from the Missouri Baptist Convention Christian Life Commission and the Missouri Family Policy Council.
 
Missouri's tax code is tied to the federal code. Nixon said couples who file joint federal returns must file state taxes jointly. Federal officials determined legally married same-sex couples would be treated as married regardless of where they live.
 
A Nixon spokesman declined comment about the lawsuit.

Christie arrives in NJ town to apologize to mayor

Thursday, 09 January 2014 15:37 Published in National News
FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie has arrived in a northern New Jersey borough to apologize in person to the mayor for traffic jams that were apparently created as political payback.
 
Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich had urged the governor not to make the trip late Thursday, though he said he accepts the governor's apology. Sokolich wants to see if more details emerge from various investigations.
 
Christie did not comment as he entered the Fort Lee municipal building.
 
The governor publicly apologized at a Trenton news conference Thursday morning after emails seemed to show an aide wanted highway lanes near the George Washington Bridge closed in September because the mayor wasn't endorsing Christie.
 
Christie fired the aide.
 
Sokolich says he hopes Christie will apologize again if investigations reveal additional misconduct.
