City crews busy patching potholes

Monday, 13 January 2014 06:59 Published in Local News
A break in the weather allowed St. Louis city street crews to patch the pavement yesterday in an attempt to manage the growing number of potholes.  Officials hoped to have most of the major holes on the arterial roads fixed with a temporary patch on Monday. The storm of a week ago, coupled with frigid temperatures and then fast melting, has created craters on streets throughout the area. The pothole patching is a temporary fix which will hopefully last until getting more attention in the Spring. City officials are asking residents to report potholes to the Citizens' Service Bureau by calling 314.622.4800, tweeting to @stlcsb, or filling out a request for service online.  The Streets Department has also set a goal of patching potholes reported to the CSB within 48 hours of getting a request. 
 

Missouri football standout's arrest tied to drugs

Saturday, 11 January 2014 20:24 Published in Sports
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Missouri receiver Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested in southwest Missouri after an officer found about a pound of marijuana in the vehicle he was in with two other men.
 
Green-Beckham, a sophomore who led No. 5 Missouri in receptions last season, and the other men were released without formal charges after their arrest late Friday, Springfield police said in a statement.
 
Green-Beckham, John W. McDaniel and Patrick Prouty, were pulled over late Friday because the vehicle McDaniel was driving had expired license plates, police said. The statement said the officer smelled marijuana in the vehicle and found "approximately a pound of marijuana and assorted drug paraphernalia" in the vehicle.
 
Green-Beckham, McDaniel and Prouty were booked into the Greene County jail for distribution of a controlled substance. All three were released without bond or charges while the case is investigated.
 
Missouri spokesman Chad Moller said the school was "aware of the situation and working to learn more."
 
The 6-foot-6, 225-pound Green-Beckham was considered the top prospect in the nation when he signed a letter of intent with Missouri. He set national prep records of 6,353 career yards receiving and 75 touchdown catches at Springfield Hillcrest High. Last season, he had 59 receptions with a 15-yard average and 12 touchdowns.
 
In the SEC championship game against Auburn, he caught six passes for 144 yards and two scores. His 27-yard catch set up Henry Josey's go-ahead score in the Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma State.
 
Green-Beckham was charged in October 2012 with marijuana possession after he and two teammates were reportedly smoking pot in a campus parking lot near Memorial Stadium. All three later pleaded guilty to second-degree trespassing in the case.

No. 21 Missouri survives scare, 70-68, over Auburn

Saturday, 11 January 2014 20:20 Published in Sports
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Earnest Ross made himself right at home in his old arena.
 
The former Auburn player hit four free throws down the stretch and Jordan Clarkson scored 20 points to lead No. 21 Missouri to a 70-68 victory at Auburn Arena on Saturday.
 
"You heard the boos," Clarkson said. "I think he quieted them down when he hit those free throws. It was a big win for him.
 
"He was more focused. You could see it in his eyes that he was ready to play on the defensive and offensive end. He finished the game out for us."
 
Ross, who spent two seasons at Auburn before transferring in 2011, scored 16 points for Missouri (13-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference). He made four straight free throws in the final 1:34.
 
"Coach told me to just knock the free throws down and to be calm and patient," Ross said. "That was what I did. I just took my time, believed in myself and knocked them down."
 
The game went down to the final moments.
 
Unable to get off a tying 3-pointer, Chris Denson missed a layup with 5 seconds left but drew the foul for Auburn (8-5, 0-2). He made one free throw then Torren Jones stepped on the baseline after rebounding the missed second attempt.
 
Wes Clark batted away Tahj Shamsid-Deen's long inbounds pass to end the game and Jabari Brown collected the ball just before time ran out.
 
Brown added 15 points on 4-of-13 shooting. Ross had seven rebounds and was perfect on eight attempts from the line.
 
Missouri dominated in rebounds with a 44-28 advantage and bounced back from an overtime loss to Georgia that snapped a nation's-best 26-game home winning streak.
 
"We got crushed on the backboard," Auburn coach Tony Barbee said. "I thought that was where the game was won and lost, in the trenches. I thought defensively we played a great game. I thought offensively we executed fairly well, shooting almost 54 percent in the second half.
 
"But when it matters most, in those key moments, your execution has got to be at its highest. And in those key moments, those last three or four possessions, our execution was at its lowest in this game."
 
Shamsid-Deen had 13 points and six assists for Auburn. Denson had 11 points despite a 3-of-10 performance in free throws.
 
Missouri shot 32.7 percent (17 of 52) from the floor but also made 31 of 41 free throws. Jones had 11 rebounds.
 
"I thought we showed great toughness," Missouri coach Frank Haith said. "We didn't shoot the ball well but we rebounded well. That's an area we struggled with the other night against Georgia."
 
Auburn fared much better from the field, hitting 23 of 53 shots (43.4 percent). But Auburn also made barely over half from the line, 14 of 26.
 
Denson's drive gave Auburn a 67-66 lead with 1:51 left. Missouri reclaimed the lead with two free throws by Ross.
 
Ross then blocked Harrell's shot on the other end. He was Auburn's leading scorer and rebounder in his final season before leaving, and shook off a steady stream of heckling from students.
 
"To come out and play my old school on the road, it was a great feeling," Ross said. "I'm glad we got the win."
 
Auburn walk-on Alex Thompson, who had eight points, drew a charge against Clarkson with just over a minute remaining. But Denson missed his shot and Ross made two free throws with 29 seconds left to set up the final sequence with Auburn needing three points.
 
Thompson had scored just one point in five appearances this season. He played an increased role with starter Allen Payne limited to two minutes with a hamstring injury.
 
Before the game, Barbee also announced the indefinite suspension of reserve forward Chris Griffin for violating an undisclosed school policy.
 
Clarkson had hit three of four free throws after Auburn's Matthew Atewe fouled out and was called for a technical, giving Missouri a 56-51 lead with 8:12 left.
 
Brown's long 3-pointer with 7 seconds left had given Missouri a 33-30 halftime lead and capped a closing 8-0 run.
