   A death penalty case in St. Charles County is the first in more than a decade.  

   Sixty-three year old Terry Culberson is accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend, 55 year old Dorothy Hall in the face five times.  Her body was found inside Culberson's O'Fallon, Missouri mobile home on February 5, 2013.  

   St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar says the brutality of the murder was a factor in deciding to ask for the death penalty. "St. Charles County has not requested a death penalty since 2002, so it's a very unique situation," he said.  

   Lohmar says Culberson's past conviction for assault with the intent to kill was also a factor.  A trial date has not yet been set.

 

Zoo-Museum Dist. looking for ways to raise funds

Tuesday, 01 October 2013 02:33 Published in Local News

   If the Zoo-Museum District doesn't expand to include more counties around the St. Louis metro area, visitors may have to start paying admission to visit the St. Louis Zoo, Art Museum and other cultural venues.  

   That's according to Zoo-Museum District Board member Charlie Valier.  With grand plans to expand the zoo across I-64/US-40, civic leaders are trying to find the best way to raise the hundreds of millions of dollars needed.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Valier told the board yesterday that there are three options to raise revenues:  Ask voters to raise the tax rates; Charge admission; or widen the Zoo-Museum District to include St. Charles, Jefferson and Franklin Counties in Missouri, and Madison and St. Clair Counties in Illinois.  

   Valier told the paper that six counties support cultural venues in the Denver area, and three support those in Detroit.

Monarch bans firefighters pink "breast cancer" tees

Tuesday, 01 October 2013 02:07 Published in Local News

   The firefighters in the Monarch Fire Protection District won't be pretty in pink for this year's breast cancer fundraiser.

   The bright pink tee-shirts they've worn during Breast Cancer Awareness Month for the last four years have been banned this year by the district board.  

   Two of the district's three board members told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the shirts aren't professional and could lead to confusion among the public, since firefighters sell the tees to raise funds.  

   Firefighters say the move is political, since the shirts bear the firefighter's union logo.  

   Relations between the board and the International Association of Firefighters has been tense since the April board election.
