We will hear more from Scott Schnuck today in a you tube video about a credit  and debit card breach. The grocery chain now says 2.4 million Schnucks customers may have been compromised between December of last year and March 2013.

Schnucks says only the card numbers and expiration dates were stolen, not the credit card holder's identity.

“On behalf of myself, the Schnuck family, and all of our 15,000 teammates, I apologize to everyone affected by this incident,” said Scott Schnuck in a press release. “Over the years, technology has helped us deliver superior customer service, but it also introduces risks that we have actively worked to manage through compliance audits, encryption technology and various other security measures.”

The company also sent news outlets a timeline showing what happened and when. The company says it was told of an issue on March 15, formed a response team on March 19, contacted police on the 20th, began to identify the problem on the 28th, but did not communicate any concern to customers until March 30.

According to the company, “if you used your card at any one of the 79 affected stores between December 2012 and March 29, 2013, your card could have been accessed.”  Click here for the FULL LIST

The company has declined to do interviews due to legal concerns over pending lawsuits. The company is preparing a video statement instead.

Schnucks has set up a call line for customers to use for any questions. The number is 1-888-414-8022. The line is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5p.m. and the weekend of April 20-21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Customers have asked me if it is safe to shop at Schnucks,” Schnuck said. “Yes, we believe it is, and we will work hard to keep it that way.”

A kayaker is safe this morning following a dramatic rescue from the Missouri River Sunday afternoon.  

Firefighters report  that around 4:30 p.m. witnesses saw the man's kayak flip, throwing him into the water.  His kayak broke apart and sank.  

It happened between Howell Island and the St. Louis County riverbank west of Chesterfield Valley and Spirit of St. Louis Airport.  

Fire officials say the man stayed afloat by clinging to a log until rescuers reached him.  He was taken to a hospital to be evaluated for hypothermia.  

MoDOT urges caution in work zones

Monday, 15 April 2013 06:47 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri transportation officials are urging motorists to be cautious in highway work zones.

The reminder comes as the Transportation Department prepares for spring and summer roadwork. It also coincides with National Work Zone Awareness Week.

A Missouri law approved last year requires drivers to change lanes and yield for transportation agency vehicles with amber or white lights, including those marked for emergency response or motorist assistance.

MoDOT says that 16 of its workers have been killed on the job since 2000. MoDOT employee Clifton Scott was struck and killed on Interstate 70 in Independence last September, while helping reroute traffic around the scene of a four-vehicle accident.
