Post, Guardian win Pulitzers for NSA revelations

Monday, 14 April 2014 14:19 Published in National News
   NEW YORK (AP) - The Washington Post and the Guardian have won Pulitzer Prizes in public service for revealing the massive U.S. government surveillance effort.
   The awards, American journalism's highest honor, were announced Monday.

   The stories are based on thousands of documents handed over by NSA leaker Edward Snowden.
   The Boston Globe has been awarded a Pulitzer Prize in breaking news, and The New York Times has won two Pulitzers in photography categories.

STL Aldermen approve downtown music festival deal

Monday, 14 April 2014 14:12 Published in Local News

   Mega-concerts are coming to downtown St. Louis after the city's Board of Aldermen on Monday approved a bill that would grant Los Angeles-based ICM Partners and its company, Summer Rocks LLC, excusive access to the Gateway Mall over Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.  

   Mayor Francis Slay, who supports the measure, still must sign it, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that today's 21-4 vote allows the concert producers to begin lining up financial partners and talent for the music festivals.  

   Under the terms of the deal, Summer Rocks would guarantee the city $50,000 per festival in the first 10 years of a possible 20 year agreement. It also would pay up to $400,000 per festival for city services and a percentage of ticket sales.  

   Organizers say they expect to begin with a country music festival on Memorial Day weekend 2015.  

IL lawmaker weigh ban on traffic ticket quotas

Friday, 11 April 2014 17:11 Published in Local News

   Traffic ticket quotas may soon be a thing of the past in Illinois.  

   A proposal to outlaw them has cleared the state Senate and will be considered in the House. The legislation says police officers can't be evaluated on the number of citations they write.

   The bill's sponsor says it will let officers use more discretion in deciding whether or not to give someone a ticket.
