   HERCULANEUM, Mo. (AP) - For more than two centuries, the Mississippi River town of Herculaneum has been tied inseparably to lead. The heavy, dull-gray metal has long been mined in southern Missouri.
   But the end of the long tradition is in sight for the small community about 25 miles south of St. Louis. The company that runs the smelter, Doe Run Company, has decided to cease most operations at the end of the year, citing rising regulatory costs.
   Lead has been both kind and cruel to Herculaneum. It has given the town an identity and ready jobs, but it also has created environmental and health concerns so worrisome that the federal government designated it a Superfund site.
   Many of the town's children were found to have dangerously high lead levels in their blood

   A suspect is in custody following an hour-long chase that left police officer injured.  

   Authorities say the chase started about 4:00 p.m. Monday in Potosi after the suspect took off during a traffic stop.

   The suspect stopped briefly for a DeSoto Police officer, but then rammed the police cruiser, causing it to strike the officer.  

   "The subject stopped outside Potosi, the officer exited his car and then the subject went in reverse.  He then hit the officers car." said Sgt. Kevin Miller of the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

   It's not clear how serious the officer's injuries are.

  The chase ended about 5:00 p.m. at Telegraph and Tenbrook in Arnold. The Missouri Highway Patrol says the man got out of the vehicle and surrendered.

   A pilot and passenger are both being treated for injuries after a small plane crashed in Jefferson County Monday evening.  It happened about 9 p.m, about two miles south of Festus City Airport.  

   Sheriff's deputies found the plane in a farm field near the 2600 block of Plattin Road.  

   Both men were conscious and able to speak to emergency crews when they were airlifted to Mercy Medical Center in Creve Coeur.  The extent of their injuries is not known.  

   KSDK-TV reports that the pilot is identified as 65 year old Jim Smith.  His 40 year old son, Christopher Smith was also on board when plane went down.  

   It's not clear what caused the crash.

   An Imperial, Missouri woman could spend a year in prison for beating her son's alleged heroin dealer with a baseball bat.  

   It took a Jefferson County jury about two hours Tuesday night to find 54 year old Sherrie Gavan guilty of third-degree misdemeanor assault.  

   Gavan admits that in December 2011, she hit Josh Loyd with a bat after seeking him out to tell him to stay away from her son, Clayton.  Her attorney had argued "self-defense," saying Gavan had believed the teen was going to hit her with a brick.  

   Gavan says she just did what any parent would have done, especially a parent who knows what heroin does to their child. "It's like my husband said, there’s two ways out:  you stop or you die," she said.  "And I did not want to bury my son.  I could not bury my son."

   Gavin says even though she could go to prison, she'd do it again, because her son is alive, graduating high school with straight "A's" and getting ready for college.
