The Go! St. Louis marathon 2013 is being called a big success.
The event attracted more than 10,000 runners for the half and full marathons that were run through St. Louis and Clayton on Sunday. Thousands more participated in fun events on Saturday.
Geoffry Kiprotich of Sylvania, Ohio, and Autumn Ray of Tucson, Arizona were the winners of the 26.2 mile race.
The Ellisville City Council is expected to decide Monday evening whether or not to impeach their mayor, Adam Paul. The council has scheduled public deliberations at 6:00 p.m.
If the council votes to oust Paul, he has said he'll sue.
The council has already retained attorneys to defend the impeachment, but the vigor of that defense is up in the air, since a newly elected council will be seated April 17th.
Three new council members were elected April 2nd - two of them are Paul supporters. The third hasn't made her position known. Paul opponents Matt Pirrello and Rose Acup will remain on the council, along with Linda Reel, who had voted against charging Paul in the first place.
Mayor Paul was elected in April 2012 after campaigning against tax increment financing for a development that includes a new Walmart store. The TIF was approved despite his opposition.
What began as a river rescue is now a recovery operation.
A small fishing boat capsized on the Mississippi River Saturday afternoon, dumping two men and a 10 year old boy into the wind torn water.
A towboat crew found the boy and pulled him to safety.
More than two dozen fire and rescue crews spent the day Sunday searching for the boy's step-father and another man, but both are still missing. Hartford Fire Assistant Chief Bill Owens says they searched in the water and along the banks from Hartford, Illinois south to the Chain of Rocks Bridge.
By Sunday afternoon Owens expressed little hope that the men would be found alive.
Owens says the boy was wearing a life jacket when he was pulled from the water. It's not known if the men were wearing theirs, since two life jackets have been found in the area.
Crews will resume searching Monday morning using sonar provided by the Illinois Conservation Department.
