   Several St. Peters residents are calling for their alderman to resign after he was charged with marijuana possession.  Alderman Tommy Roberts was charged after St. Peters police found marijuana in his home August 7th.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that about a half-dozen residents called for Roberts resignation at Thursday night's meeting of the Board of Aldermen.  None of the aldermen responded to the comments last night.  

   Roberts, who has Hodgkin's lymphoma, a form of cancer, said shortly after his arrest that the marijuana possession was "a medical issue."

Controversial cell tower approved in St. Peters

Friday, 13 September 2013 02:48 Published in Local News

   Some St. Peters homeowners are upset after a controversial cell phone tower was approved by the Board of Aldermen on a 6-2 vote Thursday night.  

   It was the second time St. Charles Tower had applied for a special use permit to build a 90 -foot tower in the 700 block of Jungerman Road.  The first time, the permit was denied because of it's proximity to a daycare.  

   But that was before Missouri's new Uniform Wireless Communications Infrastructure Deployment Act, which took affect at the end of August.  The legislation makes it more difficult for local communities to block cell tower construction.  

Putin hails Syria's action on chemical weapons ban

Friday, 13 September 2013 02:44 Published in National News

   BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan (AP) — Russia's President Vladimir Putin says that Syria's move to join an international convention banning chemical weapons has proven its good faith.

   Speaking at a summit of an international security grouping dominated by Russia and China, Putin said Friday the move showed that Syria has "serious intentions to embark on that path."

   Syria made a formal bid Thursday to join the Chemical Weapons Convention. The U.N. welcomed the move, but said that it could take 30 days for Syria to become a member.

   Russia proposed on Monday that Syria surrenders control over its chemical weapons to the international community for its eventual dismantling to avoid a U.S. military strike, and Damascus quickly jumped at the offer. Top U.S. and Russian diplomats are holding talks in Geneva to discuss the plan's specifics.
