Local leaders have put out the call to those in need and to those who can help.

Cool Down St. Louis and Ameren kicked off their annual summer program to keep St. Louisans safe from the deadly heat, delivering 240 air conditioners today to elderly and disabled residents, and pledging assistance to the elderly and disabled.

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says donations are critical to the program's success, "It is important to note that eventually, all the funds will be exhausted this year. And remind you that 100 percent of proceeds, 100 percent of private donations that go to this, go directly to helping someone in need. There are no administrative costs that come out of our donations. 

If you would like to donate a new or slightly used air conditioner, Vatterot Colleges are taking donated units and they will refurbish them if necessary. For more information go to CoolDownStLouis.org.

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Southern Illinois University President Glenn Poshard says the school has met a budget milestone.

He told The Southern Illinoisan Editorial Board on Monday that for the first time in several years SIU has been able to enter the next fiscal year with a budget equal to the previous year. University officials had been bracing for another 5 percent cut, but instead were able to convince state lawmakers to reinstate funding at the previous year's level. The school's budget will be $203 million.

Poshard also discussed enrollment. He says it's unrealistic to think the school's declining enrollment will turn around. But Poshard says he sees evidence enrollment is moving in the right direction. He says he has confidence Chancellor Rita Cheng will accomplish the task.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A central Missouri couple is concerned that a former soldier will be granted visitation or custody of the child he conceived with their 14-year-old daughter.

 

   Pulaski County Associate Circuit Judge John Clayton is scheduled to hold a hearing Tuesday in the guardianship and adoption case filed by a Pulaski County couple regarding their grandson.

 

   The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the girl's parents are seeking to terminate the parental rights of the father.

 

   A military court in 2012 found the father not guilty of aggravated sexual assault, statutory rape and committing an indecent act with the couple's daughter. She became pregnant in 2010.

 

   The father is seeking to gain custody or visitation and to change the boy's name. He says he's wants his parental rights recognized.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill says she is supporting a super political action committee encouraging Hillary Rodham Clinton to run for president in 2016.

McCaskill is the first sitting member of Congress to endorse the group, called Ready for Hillary.

The organization does not have official ties to the former secretary of state but it's trying to lay the foundation for another Clinton campaign.

McCaskill was an early supporter of Barack Obama when he was running for president in 2008. She says it's important for supporters of Clinton to start early and build a "grassroots army from the ground up" to help the former first lady if she decides to run for president.

McCaskill was re-elected to her second term in the Senate in 2012.

Monday's afternoon's storm and flooding left thousands without power in the St. Louis area. Ameren reports only a handful of homes and businesses remain without power Tuesday morning.

At the height of the Monday afternoon storm over 4,000 were without power in Missouri and another 1,000 in Illinois.

They were most heavily concentrated in Webster Groves and Affton. Lights were also out at several businesses at the intersection Hampton and Chippewa.

The greatest threat from the storms was flooding. 

Some areas in and around St. Louis absorbed several inches of rain in short order. Flash flooding, a problem in several areas including South City on Kingshighway near Chippewa, where Jerry Ackerman says his Toyota showroom got a little wet.  (Yeh, it kinda happened real quick here. The rain came down, water starts shooting out of the manholes and the next thing you know it's up to our front window here in the showroom.)

Ackerman says everything was fine until drivers ventured through the water, creating waves which pushed the H2O into his business. There was about three inches of water to mop up.  Reporting in South St. Louis city, I'm Vicki Pimentel, KTRS news.
