   Four projects by the crew that broke a natural gas line, causing an explosion that destroyed a Soulard business Wednesday, are on now hold.  That after city officials learned the South Dakota-based Four Winds company was operating without a city business license.  

   Maggie Crane, a spokeswoman for the Mayor's office, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the company had been hired by subcontractor MasTec, to install fiber optic cable for AT&T when the accident happened.  

   The gas rupture forced the evacuation of 14 people from the Stars Design Group just before explosions rocked the block.  

   Crane says the city also hadn't been given the required 24-hours notice that work on the project was beginning.  So Four Winds other projects for AT&T were halted Thursday.

   Storm spotters play an important role in monitoring the weather around the St. Louis area, especially during the spring storm season.  The National Weather Service is gearing up for spring by offering Storm Spotter training classes across the metro area.  
   The next class is Saturday at 9:00 a.m. at the Justice Center in St. Peters.  But if you want to be a registered storm spotter and can't make the class, there are 16 others scheduled across the metro area before the end of March.
   The classes are free and open to everyone, but only those who are high school age or older can sign up as a volunteer storm spotter.  Registration isn't required for most classes.  Check the National Weather Service's storm spotter class schedule for more information: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=schedule.

   KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The Taliban say they have captured a military dog belonging to NATO forces in Afghanistan, releasing a video of the canine wearing a high-tech harness.
   Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said Friday that the dog was captured during a battle about a month ago in Laghman province, east of the capital, Kabul.
   The insurgents sent by email a video showing a brown dog held on a leash by a Taliban fighter. It wore a harness mounted with a video camera and a voiceover said the dog was being called "Colonel."
   Mujahid said by telephone that the dog is in good health and is not being mistreated.
   The NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan confirmed Friday that one of its military dogs went missing during a mission in December. It gave no other details.

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- T.J. Oshie scored 3:29 into overtime, leading the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.
 
Oshie jammed the puck in from the side of the net as the Blues, who scored a 3-2 shootout win Nov. 21 in Boston, swept the season series.
 
Alexander Steen and Jaden Schwartz also scored for St. Louis, which blew a 2-0 lead in the third period as Boston scored in a span of just over 2 minutes.
 
Boston had won in its last three trips to St. Louis, and this was the first Blues' home win against the Bruins since Oct. 6, 2006, in a shootout. The last regulation win at home against Boston came on Dec. 18, 1999.
 
David Krejci and Brad Marchand scored for the Bruins.
 
Steen gave the Blues a 1-0 lead with his 28th goal when he ripped a slap shot from the top of the right circle to beat Tuukka Rask at 15:48 of the first period. Jaden Schwartz fed the puck to Steen, who has eight points in his last nine games.
 
Schwartz made it 2-0 when he snapped a wrist shot from the left circle at 3:32 of the second period. The shot by Schwartz grazed the left shoulder of Rusk, who was screened by Kevan Miller. It was the 18th goal by Schwartz.
 
St. Louis' Jaroslav Halak stopped 24 shots in the first two periods before allowing two on the first seven shots in the third.
 
Krejci scored for Boston on a wrist shot from the top of the slot at 9:16, and Marchand then scored on a rebound of a shot by Johnny Boychuck at 11:24.
 
The Blues went 0-for-3 on the power play, and are now 0-for-12 in the last three games.
 
Boston is 7-2-1 in its last 10 games, and the Bruins dropped their first on the road in their last six games.
 
NOTES: Hall of Fame inductee and former St. Louis Rams player Aeneas Williams dropped the ceremonial first puck. ... Boston captain Zdeno Chara was not at the game. He has left for the Olympics, where he is to carry Slovakia's flag in the opening ceremonies. Defenseman David Warsofsky took his place in the lineup. ... Blues F Vladimir Sobotak (knee) and F Vladimir Tarasenko (flu) did not play. ... Boston D Adam McQuaid (lower body) did not play. ... Blues F Brenden Morrow played his 900th career game. He is the 47th active player to accomplish the feat.
