CHICAGO (AP) - Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts says a $500 million deal with the city of Chicago to renovate the nearly century-old Wrigley Field is a milestone.

Ricketts spoke to reporters Monday at Wrigley Field, the day after the deal with the city was announced. The plans include an electronic video screen and more night games. It still needs final approval.

Ricketts says money earned from the proposal would give the team the resources to get to the World Series. He says if the plan is approved the team would "win the World Series" for its fans and players. The last World Series championship for the Cubs came in 1908 - six years before Wrigley was built.

Ricketts calls it a "massive investment" that includes community contributions, like $1 million for a park.

Officials with Republic Services say the smell at Bridgeton will get worse before it gets better.

Monday's rain pushed back the start of work to remove sections of concrete pipe in the landfill. Engineers say the pipe removal will make the ground in and around the landfill safer, but the smell will be worse while work is underway.

The project was initially supposed to be completed on April 30, but with rain forecast through Thursday, it is still unclear when work will get underway. Contractors and company officials will meet midweek to discuss a starting date.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The federal Social Security Administration now says that its investigators were not able to read an electronic list of concealed gun permit holders from Missouri.

In an email Monday, a spokesman for the federal agency says it distributed incorrect information last week when it said the disk was read before it was destroyed.  The agency's retraction came after Missouri Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer held a news conference Monday recounting what he had been told about the disk by the agency's inspector general.

The miscommunication highlights the confusion about an issue that has been a growing concern among Republican lawmakers. They fear gun owners' privacy rights were violated when the Missouri State Highway Patrol provided the list of permit holders to a federal investigator.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Someone purchased a $1 million lottery ticket in St. Louis County and the Missouri Lottery is urging that person to come forward.

The Mega Millions ticket was purchased at a Circle K convenience store on Watson Road in St. Louis County for the April 12 drawing. The recipient matched all five white-ball numbers drawn, and because that person chose the Megaplier option, the prize rose to $1 million.

The winning number combination was 1, 10, 13, 19 and 21.

Mega Millions winners have 180 days from the drawing to claim the prize - in this case, until Oct. 9. Missouri Lottery offices are in St. Louis, Jefferson City, Springfield and Kansas City.
