World Series security a top priority

Friday, 25 October 2013 10:05 Published in Local News

Law enforcement officials are reminding fans and visitors to St. Louis to secure any valuables in their car by placing them out of sight and locking their doors.  

St. Louis police and the Cardinals are committed to ensuring a safe 2013 World Series experience, but they will need an assist from the public.

The Redbirds and Boston Red Sox play Games 3, 4 and 5 on Saturday, Sunday and Monday at Busch Stadium.  

Officers will patrol in both uniform and undercover capacities -- in both marked and unmarked vehicles.  They will also have more foot and mounted patrols. 

Police are encouraging anyone who sees suspicious activity to alert a nearby officer or call 911.

There will be a pre-game pep rally at Ballpark Village beginning at 3:30 each afternoon and the gates to the stadium will open at 4:30 each day. 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A prominent Kansas City defense attorney has been hired to represent a northwest Missouri man at the center of a teen sexual assault case that has gained national attention because of the way it was handled.

 J.R. Hobbs confirmed Thursday that he will assist the Maryville native who was 17 in January 2012 when a 14-year-old girl claimed he plied her with alcohol and sexually assaulted her.

Daisy Coleman says justice was not served when Nodaway County prosecutor Robert Rice dismissed felony charges against the boy, along with a second 17-year-old accused of recording the incident on his cellphone.

Jackson County prosecuting attorney Jean Peters Baker was appointed Monday as special prosecutor in the case and will decide whether evidence supports refiling of charges.


The Rally Squirrel in a trademark battle

Friday, 25 October 2013 07:56 Published in Local News

Superstition has always been a part of sports and Cardinals fans are well aware of it's place in Redbird folklore.  From red, soul-patches on the chin to playoff beards, fans and players alike have their connection to the mystique of superstitions. 

So it shouldn't be a surprise that the memory of the 2011 Rally Squirrel would be a possible court battle.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that there is a lingering trademark dispute at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office over the furry little fellow.

The Cardinals are contesting an October 2011 application by a Fenton businessman for a federal trademark on the Rally Squirrel for shirts and related memorabilia. 

Phil Rideout, told the newspaper  that he thinks he was the first one to make a Rally Squirrel T-Shirt in 2011 and says he applied to register the trademark.  

But the Cardinals filed an opposition with the trademark office in 2012 saying the Rally Squirrel was immediately associated with the team.

The two parties are now trying to negotiate a settlement.
