Poplar Street Bridge gets a new "official" name

Monday, 07 October 2013 12:22 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A downtown St. Louis bridge referred to by locals using its geographic designation has been renamed for a prominent area politician.

What locals call the Poplar Street Bridge was technically known as the Bernard F. Dickmann Bridge after a former St. Louis mayor. But the bridge spanning the Mississippi River and connecting St. Louis to Illinois will now be officially known as the Congressman William L. Clay Sr. Bridge.

Clay is a former Democratic congressman and civil rights leader who was Missouri's first black congressman and spent more than three decades in the U.S. House of Representatives.

He attended a Monday morning dedication ceremony along with Mayor Francis Slay, Gov. Jay Nixon and Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr., the honoree's son.

Centreville boy hit by TV during car crash dies

Sunday, 06 October 2013 09:21 Published in Local News

ALORTON, Ill. (AP) — A 16-month-old southern Illinois boy has died after being hit by an unsecured television during a car crash.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Marshawn Billops of Centreville, Illinois died Friday evening at St. Louis Children's Hospital about five hours after the car he was riding in crashed into a light pole in Alorton.

An unsecured television hit the boy as it flew out of the back seat of the car and caused severe head injuries that led to his death, police said.

Alorton police say the television was a flat-screen weighing about 80 pounds. Billops' mother and sister suffered minor injuries and were able to get out of the car. Police say Marshawn was trapped inside the car and had to be rescued.

Boehner: No idea when government shutdown ends

Sunday, 06 October 2013 09:17 Published in National News

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker John Boehner (BAY-nur) says he doesn't know when the government shutdown will end and says it's up to President Barack Obama to start negotiations.

The Ohio Republican said Sunday that he will not allow his GOP-led House to vote on a bill reopening the government without serious talks about spending. He also says he will not go forward with a bill increasing the government's borrowing authority without a similar conservation.

The government partially shut down last week amid Washington gridlock and faces a make-or-break deadline later this month about the nation's borrowing power. Republicans have refused to budge without concessions on Democrats' health care law. Democrats have resisted GOP efforts to dismantle that health care law.

Boehner spoke to ABC's "This Week."
