A public memorial service is scheduled today for St. Louis native and Colorado's top prison official, who was shot to death at his home last week.

A private funeral was held yesterday for former Missouri official Tom Clements, according to his obituary in the Colorado Springs Gazette. The man suspected of killing Clements died following a shootout with authorities in Texas.

The 58-year -old Clements was born in St. Louis. He attended Hazelwood High and St. Louis Community College. He graduated from Mid-America Nazarene University and earned a master's degree from the University of Missouri.

Before moving to Colorado in 2011, Clements worked for the Missouri Department of Corrections for 30 years, most recently as director of adult institutions.

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow can keep letter carriers from delivering a message: stopping Saturday mail delivery is a bad idea. Despite Sunday's snow storm, letter carriers rallied outside the main post office in downtown St. Louis.

U.S. Postal Service officials have announced plans to end Saturday mail delivery in an effort to cut $2 billion in costs. But the letter carriers argue that USPS will also lose business if Saturday mail delivery is stopped.

Sunday's rally in St. Louis was one of dozens across the country staged by the postal workers' union as part of their National Day of Action.

A tractor-trailer fire caused delays for drivers along Interstate 44 in the City of St. Louis overnight.

Crews had to closed eastbound I-44 at Vandeventer just before midnight while emergency crews worked to contain it. The right two lanes reopened about 12:30 a.m. but the left lane remained closed.

It's not clear what sparked the fire, but the tractor and trailer appear to be total losses. Both have burned down to their metal frames.

There's no word of any injuries.
