St. Louis plays host Thursday night to a soccer exhibition featuring a pair of rivals in the English Premier League. With the Cardinals on the road, Busch Stadium welcomes some of the top soccer talent in the world. But those with a ticket need to heed some warnings. KTRS' Vicki Pimentel has this report.
"Soccer fans heading to Thursday night's exhibition between Manchester City and Chelsea should expect extra security checks at the gates. St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson says it will be a lot like the playoffs or World Series, but planning ahead can save fans time.
Dotson says, 'Post-Boston, the stadium has put in new security measures where they do random wanding. They've always done bag checks now they're doing an additional layer of security to look for those types of things. So leave those items at home; pocket knives, pen knives, mace, guns, no place at a soccer match.'
Chief Dotson also urges the public not to leave a weapon in the car and not to leave anything you value, visible. Reporting from St. Louis city, I'm Vicki Pimentel, KTRS news."
Construction is set to begin this morning on Stage 3 of the Page Extension, and MoDOT local leaders are gathering in St. Charles County later Wednesday morning to mark the occasion. KTRS's Michael Golde has a preview...
"Ground is being broken today where the final 9 miles of route 364 ends at I-64. It's all part of a nearly $120 million dollar project that will include a 4-lane divided highway from Mid Rivers Mall to I-64 in St. Charles.
St. Charles and MoDOT are roughly splitting the price tag. Phase 3 is designed to relieve congestion in the central portion of St. Charles and to provide another route into st. Louis.
The Page extension is expected to be completed by November 2014."
O'FALLON, Ill. (AP) - An Illinois Army National Guard veteran and former sports journalist says he's running for a southern Illinois congressional seat.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Republican Doug Bucshon is seeking the 12th Congressional District seat held by Bill Enyart, a Democrat who was elected to his first term last November.
A 20-year veteran of the state's National Guard, Bucshon has never held political office. Since retiring from active duty, he has covered University of Illinois basketball and football.
The 12th District stretches from the Illinois suburbs of St. Louis to the state's southernmost tip.
Enyart succeeded Democrat Jerry Costello, who retired after more than two decades in office.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois Senate has again approved a plan to address so-called Smart Grid technology over the objection of Gov. Pat Quinn.
Senators voted 44-11 Tuesday to override Quinn's veto earlier this month. Quinn claimed the bill undermined oversight and would force automatic rate hikes.
Senate President John Cullerton disputed those claims. A three-fifths majority was needed. It now heads to the House.
ComEd pushed the bill as a way to clarify 2011 legislation allowing utilities to raise rates to fund a high-tech system. But executing it has been tricky.
The Illinois Commerce Commission and ComEd disagreed over implementation. ComEd filed a court appeal over technical matters and faces a class-action lawsuit over installation delays.
The proposal clarifies some of those issues and hastens installation.
