Jack Clark challenges Pujols to lie detector test

Monday, 14 October 2013 14:55 Published in Local News

The feud between former Cardinals sluggers Albert Pujols and Jack Clark has taken another turn.

It all started when Jack Clark went on the air this summer, accused Pujols of using performance enhancing drugs. Pujols then threatened to sue Clark and the radio station that employed him, which led to Clark's termination.

Monday, Clark's lawyer Albert Watkins sent a letter to Pujols' attorney, requesting that the former Cardinals MVP take a polygraph test to prove he didn't use steroids. The letter states that if Pujols won't take a polygraph, Watkins has been instructed to proceed with a highly charged, entertaining, and public spectacle.

Pujols has always vehemently denied any steroid use. 

Nixon releases money to help rebuild Missouri school

Monday, 14 October 2013 13:43 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has released $1 million in state funding to help rebuild a northeast Missouri vocational school destroyed by fire.

Lawmakers included funding for the Pike-Lincoln Technical Center in the current year's budget, but Nixon vetoed the appropriation.

The Legislature overrode the veto in September. But Nixon then froze the spending while determining if there was enough money in a particular fund to pay for it and whether the fund could legally be used for the project.

Nixon's budget director said Monday that the $1 million for the school had been released last week.
