Schwartz scores in 6th straight; Blues top Wild

Wednesday, 01 January 2014 00:37 Published in Sports
 
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Jaden Schwartz scored for the sixth straight game and the St. Louis Blues hung on to beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night.
 
T.J. Oshie also had a goal for St. Louis, which is 5-0-2 in its past seven road games. The Blues are 8-1-2 in their last 11 games overall.
 
Ryan Suter scored in the closing seconds for the Wild, who have lost a franchise-record six straight games in regulation and are 5-12-1 in their past 18. They have gone 10 straight games without a win in regulation, leading to speculation regarding coach Mike Yeo's job status.
 
St. Louis, 13-0-1 against the Central Division, hadn't allowed a goal to the Wild for 212 minutes, 52 seconds until Suter scored with 8.3 seconds left in the game.
 
Brian Elliott (10-1-2), who made 24 saves, went 6-0-1 with a 1.67 goals-against average in December. The Blues are 5-0-2 in their last seven games against Minnesota, outscoring the Wild 22-8.
 
Minnesota had allowed 24 goals in its previous five games - 11 in its last two - and much of Monday's practice surrounded defensive-zone coverage.
 
Yeo switched up the defensive pairings with Suter and Jared Spurgeon playing together, and Jonas Brodin pairing with Marco Scandella. Suter and Brodin have been the team's top defensive pair for most of the season.
 
The switch seemed to work early as Minnesota limited the Blues to seven first-period shots, none that were difficult for goalie Josh Harding to handle.
 
Oshie gave the Blues a 1-0 lead at 6:49 of the second period.
 
Mikael Granlund turned the puck over as he tried to come out of the Minnesota end, and Schwartz snapped a quick backhanded pass to Oshie, who was behind two Wild defenders. Oshie, a Minnesota native, deked Harding and tucked the puck into the net.
 
Schwartz made it 2-0 a little more than nine minutes later when his wrist shot from low in the right circle was partially stopped by Harding, but the puck trickled across the line. Schwartz has 11 points in eight games.
 
Minnesota, which entered averaging the second-fewest goals per game in the NHL (2.22) and the fewest in the Western Conference, was on the power play for most of the period's final two minutes. The Wild failed to generate a shot and were loudly booed off the ice when the period expired.
 
The Wild had another power play early in the third, but Schwartz had the best scoring chance when he got behind two defenders and was stopped by Harding.
 
NOTES: St. Louis RW Chris Stewart was hit in the face by Jason Pominville's shot in the first period and didn't return. ... St. Louis played without two of its top scorers, Alexander Steen (upper body) and David Backes (upper body). ... This is the eighth consecutive year and 10th time in team history the Wild played at home on New Year's Eve.

Energy efficient home is model for low income housing

Tuesday, 31 December 2013 10:35 Published in Local News
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Columbia city officials say they hope an energy-efficient home will be a model for future low-income housing projects.
Habitat for Humanity is building the "net-zero" home, which includes solar panels and a solar water heater, low-flow plumbing fixtures and LED lighting.
It's the first time the organization has built such a home, which also has 45 percent more insulation than previous homes. The home also will be completely accessible to the disabled.
About a year ago, the city asked non-profit organizations to submit designs for energy-efficient homes that low-income families could afford.
The Columbia Missourian reports the house will sell for $107,000. It is expected to be completed in late spring or mid-summer next year.
 

Inmates allege cruel punishment at St. Clair County jail

Tuesday, 31 December 2013 10:23 Published in Local News
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - Dozens of inmates at a southwestern Illinois jail allege their constitutional rights were violated when they underwent group strip searches.
The federal lawsuit against the St. Clair County Jail was earlier filed this month in East St. Louis. The (Belleville) News-Democrat reports the inmates seek $10 million alleging "cruel and unusual" punishment.
The 29 inmates allege multiple body cavity searches were conducted in front of other inmates and guards.
The lawsuit contends the searches should been done in private.
St. Clair County Sheriff Rick Watson couldn't be reached by the newspaper. He didn't immediately return messages left Tuesday.
 A similar lawsuit against the jail was dismissed last week. The judge ruled strip searching prisoners as a group didn't violate the Constitution if it wasn't intended to humiliate prisoners.
