   A group of north county residents want their neighbors near the West Lake Landfill to put more pressure on elected leaders to clean up the site.  About 100 people attended a public meeting Thursday night hosted by the West Lake Landfill Community Group and Missouri Coalition for the Environment.  

   MCE's Ed Smith told the group that the current fire smoldering at the Bridgeton Landfill isn't the first to threaten the radioactive site.  "There was a landfill fire in the early 90s closer to the radioactive wastes than the current landfill fire," he said.

   That's why the groups say plans to build a barrier between the smoldering Bridgeton Landfill and West Lake isn't enough.  They want local leaders to put pressure on the Army Corps of Engineers to remove the soil, as they're doing at other radioactive waste sites.

   Missouri State Representative Bill Otto was among the political leaders who attended last night's meeting.  He told Fox 2 News that EPA work on the barrier project that had stopped because of the government shutdown is back on track.  "They're getting back in the office," he said.  "And getting ready to resume the work that they had started or were tasked to do with the landfill."

  Bridgeton Landfill LLC released the following statement:  "We're eager to resume work with  the EPA in conjunction with state agencies to begin the next stage of the construction."

  Pattonville Fire officials along with St. Louis County Councilman Steve Stenger and representatives from County Executive Charlie Dooley's office also attended the meeting.

   Organizers are calling on residents to note odor issues and contact their local politicians to make a change.

Man arrested in O'Fallon, Ill. bank heist

Thursday, 17 October 2013 03:53 Published in Local News

   O'FALLON, Ill. (AP) - A man suspected of robbing a southwestern Illinois bank is jailed pending charges, as authorities try to figure out whether he may have been involved in holdups in other states.

   Investigators say the man was arrested Tuesday near a Swansea cornfield after they found a car matching the description of a vehicle that had been used two hours earlier to rob the Bank of O'Fallon.

   The search for the man involved dozens of law enforcers and an Illinois State Police airplane.

   Authorities say the man entered the bank, implied he had a weapon and demanded money from a teller before running away.

   O'Fallon interim police chief Jeff Wild says the man may be responsible for other bank robberies outside Illinois. 

   There's no immediate word on charges. The FBI is investigating.

 

Stolen booze could mean hard time for Alton man

Thursday, 17 October 2013 03:10 Published in Local News

   A metro-east man is facing felony charges for allegedly shoplifting a single bottle of liquor.  

   Madison County prosecutors have charged 23 year old Jason Whitney of Alton with felony theft.  Police say a worker at a Godfrey supermarket caught Whitney red-handed early Saturday morning.  

   Sheriff's Captain Mike Dixon told the Belleville News-Democrat that the alleged theft qualifies as a felony because of Whitney's burglary conviction earlier this year.
