For now Old Slave Road,a  private street in Wildwood, will retain its name.

The Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis reports a city council committee is recommending that the town keep Old Slave Road as the name of a private street. The city council has the final say. 

Wildwood’s Administration/Public Works Committee voted 6-1 last week to keep the name.

One resident, Karen Fox, who lives on Old Slave Road, filed paperwork in October to change the name to Elijah Madison Lane.

Some have said the Old Slave Road name honors the area’s history and the black families who lived there descendants of slaves who came to the area from Virginia in 1837. Others find the name offensive.

   Just a week after severe storms brought damaging wind and tornadoes to the St. Louis area, the threat of more dangerous weather is in the forecast.  Hazelwood residents continue to clean up after a twister ripped through their community last week. But their mayor is hoping they'll now shift focus from patching roofs to preparing for the next round of storms.  

   Mayor Matthew Robinson says he hopes people heed the warning the next time the tornado sirens sound.  "When they do," he said, "obviously you can see what we went through here in Hazelwood.  People need to take shelter, because you never know.  You never know when that train’s going to be coming.”

  The mayor says if temporary tarps are damaged in this next round of storms, there are materials and supplies and volunteers that’ll come out again and help patch them up again. 

  Meanwhile residents in one storm-battered Hazelwood apartment complex are still trying to recover.  That includes Renee Fletcher, who spent  Tuesday gathering her things from her damaged apartment before they could be ruined by more bad weather.

   Fletcher says some things have already been ruined.  "There is significant molding that’s already taking place in the building," she said.  "So definitely, you want to get your things out, but it’s not safe for you to be in there anyway."

   Fletcher had lived at the Teson Garden Apartments when the tornado struck last week.  All nine buildings in the complex were so badly damaged, they've been condemned. Police say residents have until 6:00 p.m. Wednesday  to collect their belongings.  Then the buildings will be closed up for repairs.  Two of the buildings may need to be torn down.

   Authorities are taking extra security precautions around St. Louis in light of the Boston bombings.  

   St. Louis Police and Metro Transit authorities say they'd added security measures downtown Tuesday during both the Mayor's inauguration and the Blues game.  But they say there have been no specific threats made.  The extra measures are precautionary.

   There was a stepped up police and security presence both inside and outside Scottrade Center Tuesday night.  Hockey fans endured long lines to get inside, passing through extra screenings that included metal detectors and bag searches.  

   Just before the Blues game against the Vancouver Canucks, the team paid tribute to the Boston victims with a moment of silence.
