Arch grounds project will be delayed again

ST. LOUIS (AP) - It will take longer than expected to complete a $380 million renovation project on the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports a construction schedule released Tuesday says the project is not expected to be completed until the end of December 2016.
Project supporters had hoped to finish the renovation by the Arch's 50th anniversary in October of 2015. A six-month delay was announced last fall.
The National Park Service's new timetable includes a one month delay for the park over Interstate 70, five months for the Arch grounds' north park and seven more months for the south park.
A renovation of the bathrooms in the museum under the Arch will be the last component finished.

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The federal agency that oversees two popular rivers in southern Missouri is trying to balance the competing needs of preservationists who want more environmental protection against nearby property owners fighting for less government regulation.
   Paddlers, partiers, boat owners and other outdoor devotees have long flocked to the spring-fed Current and Jacks Fork rivers. The two bodies of water make up a national park known as the Ozark National Scenic Riverways.
   The National Park Service is updating its management plan there for the first time in three decades and held a series of public hearings and meetings in January. The agency's preferred alternative would close 65 miles of undesignated horse trails and unauthorized stream crossings while also adding restrictions on the use of motorized boats.

   Despite the federal shutdown that has closed hundreds of National Parks Service sites, World War II veterans from St. Louis were able to visit their memorial in Washington D.C. yesterday.  

   It was initially feared the veterans, on Honor Flights from Missouri and Illinois, many in their nineties, wouldn't be allowed to view the memorial because of the shutdown.  

   On Tuesday, images of vets stepping past ribbons and barricades to access the site garnered negative national attention.  But yesterday, 29 local veterans were welcomed by Park Service rangers at the site.
