Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones is weighing in on the felony charges leveled this week against state Representative Steve Webb.

Jones issued a statement Friday saying,  “As elected officials, our actions must be held to the highest standards and the strictest letter of the law. The allegations against Rep. Webb are egregious.

Although as a nation of laws we believe that every individual is innocent until proven guilty, the allegations alone besmirch not only Rep. Webb's name and reputation, but also unfairly tarnish the large majority of outstanding public servants who always obey the laws they are elected to craft.

Rep. Webb must now search his conscience and take whatever action is necessary to preserve the integrity of his caucus, his colleagues and the institution of the Missouri House.

I also trust the good people of Missouri will realize this is an isolated incident and not at all reflective of what I know to be the ethical and lawful behavior of the many, many men and women who serve honorably in the Missouri House of Representatives.”

Representative Webb has been charged with theft and campaign finance violations. Prosecutors say he solicited donations for an event in Washington DC and, instead, deposited that money in a personal account.
 

The City of St. Louis Red Light Camera Safety Program remains open and fully operational.  That is the message from city counselor Patty Hageman.  

Hageman says this week's court decision regarding the Ellisville program does not affect the City of St. Louis.

She advises that If you receive a red light camera ticket in the City of St. Louis, you need to pay it or contest it in court.

Unlike Ellisville, the City’s program allows vehicle owners to refute that they were driving at the time of the violation.  

Hageman expects the state Supreme Court to eventually clarify procedures that cities must use for issuing citations.  

Since the inception of red light safety cameras in the City of St. Louis, officials say violations at camera intersections have decreased by nearly two-thirds. 

Steen, Elliott lead Blues over Flames 3-2

Thursday, 07 November 2013 22:37 Published in Sports

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Alexander Steen scored his league-leading 14th goal, Brian Elliott stopped 18 shots for his 100th career win and the St. Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 Thursday night.

The Blues have won five of six and are 6-1-1 at home. Calgary has lost four of five and eight of 11.

Maxim Lapierre and Vladimir Tarasenko also scored for St. Louis.

Elliott, who got the start in place of Jaroslav Halak, improved to 2-0-1 with his second straight strong performance. He stopped 31 shots in a 4-0 win at Florida on Nov. 1.

Steen has a point in a career-best nine games in a row. He has scored in all but two games this season.

Steen converted on a backhand from the slot in the second period to push the lead to 3-0.

Tim Jackman and Mike Cammalleri scored third-period goals for Calgary. Cammalleri tallied at 14:49 to bring the Flames to within 3-2.

Calgary rookie goalie Reto Berra fell to 1-2 in his third career start.

Tarasenko broke an eight-game scoring drought with his fifth of the season on the power play at 3:01 of the opening period. He put home a rebound of a shot by Jay Bouwmeester.

Lapierre pushed the lead to 2-0 just over seven minutes later with his first goal as a member of the Blues.

The Flames, who were 0 for 6 on the power play, have failed in their last 28 man-advantage chances.

St. Louis defenseman Jordan Leopold recorded two assists. Kevin Shattenkirk picked up an assist in his seventh successive game, the longest such streak in the NHL this season.

NOTES: Calgary forward Curtis Glencross is out four to six weeks with an MCL sprain suffered in Tuesday's 5-1 loss at Minnesota. ... The Blues have scored first in their last six games.... St. Louis opened a season-trying five-game homestand that concludes Nov. 16 against Carolina. ... The Blues have not allowed a power play goal in the last four games. ...Calgary did not record its third shot on goal until 14:30 left in the second period.
