Rock slide causes lane closure on US 63

Saturday, 30 March 2013 07:34 Published in Local News

ASHLAND, Mo. (AP) — One lane of a heavily traveled highway between Jefferson City and Columbia is closed by a rock slide, and officials predict occasional delays for several weeks.

<br><br>

The Missouri Department of Transportation announced the closing of one northbound lane of U.S. 63 on Friday afternoon.

<br><br>

The slide was reported late Thursday along a rock bluff south of Ashland, near the Boone-Callaway county line. MoDOT plans to solicit bids Monday on a contract to stabilize the bluff, with work possibly starting Tuesday.

<br><br>

The northbound lane is expected to remain closed for about 10 days. MoDOT says U.S. 63 will be closed periodically throughout the project, which is expected to be finished in early May.

Goodwill returns accidental $5,000 donation

Saturday, 30 March 2013 07:31 Published in Local News

SUNSET HILLS, Mo. (AP) — The staff at a Goodwill store in St. Louis County has tracked down a couple who accidentally dropped off $5,000 in cash.

KSDK-TV reports the money turned up among bags of donations left in mid-March at the MERS/Goodwill store in Sunset Hills.

An employee found the money and reported it to supervisors, who reviewed surveillance video to narrow down the possible donors.

They turned out to be a couple from Affton who donated six trash bags of items on March 13th. The woman's 96-year-old father had recently passed away, and she didn't notice the cash among the clothing and other items bagged up for donation.

The accidental donors now have their money back.

Air Force says B-2 mission cost $2.1 million

Saturday, 30 March 2013 07:28 Published in Local News

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Air Force says it cost $2.1 million to send two nuclear-capable B-2 bombers on a training exercise over South Korea that was widely viewed as a show of force in response to weeks of threats from North Korea.

<br><br>

The service's Global Strike Command said Friday in a statement that the total flight time for the B-2s was 75 hours. The aircraft made the more than 6,500-mile round trip from Whiteman Air Force Base in Warrensburg, Missouri to a South Korean island range on Thursday.

<br><br>

North Korea has threatened nuclear strikes on Washington and Seoul.

<br><br>

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the decision to send the B-2s for drills with South Korea was part of normal military exercises with a close ally and not intended to provoke a reaction from North Korea.
