23 arrested in stunt motorcycle crackdown

Friday, 30 August 2013 15:16 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A gathering of stunt motorcyclists in the St. Louis region is off to a testy start.

 

   St. Louis police on Thursday night arrested 23 people and towed 24 motorcycles from an area near Interstate 70.

 

   Police spokeswoman Schron Jackson says officers observed about 40 motorcyclists driving recklessly through the city. She says they were doing stunts on city streets, running red lights, driving on sidewalks and driving on the wrong side of the road.

 

   Jackson says the motorcyclists fled when police approached. Those apprehended are expected to be charged with careless and reckless driving. Fifteen of the suspects are from outside the St. Louis area.

 

   The riders are in St. Louis for the annual "Ride of the Century" gathering sponsored by a St. Louis stunt team known as Streetfighterz.

 

Mo. authorizes $7M of tax credits before deadline

Friday, 30 August 2013 15:15 Published in Local News

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri authorized more than $7 million of additional tax credits shortly before the expiration of a program aimed at redeveloping large impoverished or blighted areas.

   Documents provided by the Department of Economic Development show it authorized nearly $5.8 million of tax credits for a Joplin entity responsible for redeveloping areas hit by a 2011 tornado. The agency also authorized an additional $1.4 million of tax credits for a north St. Louis project spearheaded by developer Paul McKee.

 

   Both tax credit authorizations occurred Wednesday - the final day possible under a 2007 law that created the "Distressed Areas Land Assemblage Tax Credit." That law allowed $95 million of tax credits. But the program used just half that amount before expiring.

 

   McKee lobbied unsuccessfully this year for lawmakers to extend the program.

 

Cards Acquire Axford

Friday, 30 August 2013 11:02 Published in Sports

On Thursday, the Cardinals optioned pitchers Michael Wacha and Michael Blazek while recalling left handed reliever Sam Freeman to add a fresh arm to the bullpen for their weekend series in Pittsburgh. Friday the Cardinals acquired right handed reliever Jon Axford from the Milwaukee Brewers for a player to be named later.  Axford lost the closer role in Milwaukee this season.  He accumulated a 6-7 mark with a 4.45 ERA.  Last season Axford had 35 saves for Milwaukee and lead the National League with 46 saves in 2011.
