The Missouri Supreme Court issued a decision yesterday denying the long-term, same-sex partner of a Missouri Highway patrolman survivor pension benefits.  

Cpl. Dennis Engelhard died on Christmas Day in 2009 when he was struck by a vehicle while investigating a traffic accident on Interstate 44 in Eureka.

Missouri offers a payment to the surviving spouse of a Highway Patrol officer killed in the line of duty.

But the statute governing survivor benefits defines marriage as between a man and woman. Missouri also has a prohibition on same-sex marriage in the state Constitution.

Engelhard's partner, Kelly Glossip, did not receive the benefit and argued that the state violated the equal-protection clause of the state constitution.

The Supreme Court, in a 5-2 ruling, concluded Glossip is ineligible for survivor benefits because the two were not married — not because Glossip is gay.

The ruling states that the fact the two could not be married in Missouri is not relevant. 

Steen's late goal lifts Blues over Jets 3-2

Tuesday, 29 October 2013 23:31 Published in Sports

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59.4 seconds left to break a tie and Jaroslav Halak made 21 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

The Blues, who won their second in a row, have recorded points in five successive games. Winnipeg has lost five of six. The Jets finish a four-game road trip with a 1-2-1 mark.

The Jets beat St. Louis 4-3 in a seven-round shootout on Oct. 18 in Winnipeg. Halak improved to 7-1-1. He is 5-2 lifetime in seven starts against Winnipeg.

Brenden Morrow and Alex Pietrangelo also scored for the Blues, who improved to 5-1-1 at home. Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler tallied for the Jets.

Steen scored his league-leading 11th goal off a pass from Jay Bouwmeester. Steen has goals in each of his last five games. Little tied the game 2-2 at 10:27 of the third period with a shorthanded goal. He tipped in a pass from Andrew Ladd, who finished with two assists.

Pietrangelo wristed a shot behind goalie Ondrej Pavelec at 4:16 of the final period to give the Blues a 2-1 cushion. It was Pietrangelo's second goal of the season and only his 31st in 234 games covering six seasons.

The Blues jumped in front 1-0 on Morrow's goal early in the first period off the rebound of a shot by Ryan Reaves.

Winnipeg tied the game on the goal by Wheeler at 11:20 of the first period. The Jets broke an 0-for-26 power-play drought with the two-man advantage. Wheeler converted on a rebound of a shot by Ladd for the Jets first power-play goal in nine games.

Police urge extra vigilance on Halloween

Tuesday, 29 October 2013 10:05 Published in Local News

With Halloween just a couple of days away, St. Louis County Police want to remind residents to make it a time of treat rather than trick.  

Police are urging people to remember that Halloween is a time of high pedestrian and vehicle traffic and to remain cautious and aware while enjoying any festivities.

Officials say some important tips include, driving slowly through neighborhoods and having children stay in large groups as there is safety in numbers.

Staying in lighted areas is also a safety precaution.

County police chief Tim Fitch says they are offering Halloween Safety Centers and extra patrols throughout every precinct on Halloween night.
