Stan Musial bridge to open in Feb.

Monday, 20 January 2014 04:17 Published in Local News
   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge is scheduled to open early next month.
   The new bridge will carry Interstate 70 over the Mississippi River. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the four-lane, cable-stayed bridge and associated highway projects are being funded with a combination of Missouri, Illinois and federal money.
   The Missouri Department of Transportation says the  bridge will be open from noon to 4 p.m. on Feb. 8 to walkers, runners and bicyclists who want a close-up view of the bridge. Festivities include a ribbon-cutting and a 3 p.m. parade.
   Department spokesman Andrew Gates says the agency is preparing for as many as 20,000 people to attend the events.
   Gates says the bridge is expected to open to traffic Feb. 9.
 
   A Chesterfield man is expected to recover after falling through the ice on Creve Coeur Lake Sunday while trying to rescue his dog.  
   Captain Robert Daus of the Maryland Heights Fire Protection District says passersby saw the man go out onto the ice after his dog fell through.  He was able to pull the dog out, but then fell in himself.  He was stuck.  
   Captain Daus tells Fox 2 News that crews put on their ice rescue gear on the way to the scene, and immediately went to work. They used a rope to secure the man and pull him out.
   "This is what we train for," Daus said.  "We hope we never have to use this type of training, honestly, but you know, this is where we get out there and it pays off."
   Daus says the man, who's in his late 60's, was taken to the hospital with hypothermia, but is expected to recover.  So is his dog. 
 

Jailed American appears before reporters in NKorea

Monday, 20 January 2014 02:58 Published in National News
   PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) - An American missionary who has been jailed in North Korea for more than a year has appeared before reporters and is appealing to the U.S. government to do its best to secure his release.
   The missionary, Kenneth Bae, made the comments Monday at what he called a press conference held at his own request.
   Bae was arrested in November 2012 while leading a tour group. He was accused of crimes against the state and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor. He was moved to a hospital last summer in poor health. He is the longest-serving American detainee in North Korea in recent years.
   Bae expressed hope that the U.S. government will do its best to secure his release.
