CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A new $23 million hotel and field house project in suburban St. Louis will cater to traveling athletes and their families.
GoodSports Enterprises Global says it has picked a site in Chesterfield, near the new St. Louis Premium Outlets. The hotel will have 130 rooms and the field house will have 85,000 square feet. Construction is expected to begin in the fall, and the hotel and field house should open in 2015.
Sarasota, Fla.-based GoodSports Enterprises plans to start construction this spring on similar projects in Ohio and Wichita, Kan. Overall, the company plans to develop 25 locations over the next four years.

   Boeing employees in St. Louis should know later this year if they're going to keep building F-18 Super Hornet fighter jets for the U.S. Navy after 2016.  

   The Navy had planned to switch over to the new F-35 Joint Strike Fighters built by Lockheed-Martin.  But the F-35 project has been plagued with delays, cost overruns and other problems.  So the omnibus spending bill signed into law last week (Jan. 17) contains a down payment of $75 million for 22 of Boeing's F-18s, even though the Navy didn't ask for them.  

   The law requires Navy officials to take another look at adding to the existing F-18 fleet as a hedge against more problems with the F-35.

   Bitterly cold weather and extreme wind chills are creating a dangerous situation for anyone who has to venture outside.  Local hospitals generally see a spike in emergency room visits from patients affected by the cold.
   Barnes-Jewish Hosptial ER Dr. Brian Froelke told Fox 2 News that in this weather, it doesn't take long to get into trouble.  "The risk is the possibility of frostbite," Dr. Froelke says.  "You have somewhere between ten minutes to a half an hour, depending on how cold it is."
   Dr. Froelke says its important to dress in layers and cover up any exposed skin.  
   Parents are especially encouraged to keep an extra eye on kids who will be waiting at the bus stop or walking to school in this weather.

   With dangerous sub-zero wind chills back in the St. Louis area, city officials are scrambling to fund an overflow shelter for the homeless that's already blown its budget.  
   The mayor's office says the community center at Tucker and Park costs about $1000 a night to keep open.  It provides shelter for 125 people.  The city's budget allotted for 20 days of operation this winter.  But because of the unusual amount of cold and snow, the shelter has already been open for 27 days, and the winter is only half over.  
   St. Louis Human Services Director Bill Siedhoff told Fox 2 News that the budget can't dictate the city's response to the cold.  "Mayor Slay has made it very clear," Siedhoff said.  "This is a necessity.  We will find the money.  We will find it some place.  We have to.  It’s a responsibility the city has."
   Siedhoff says the shelter will remain open as long as the extreme weather continues.
