SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — The newest members of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame include men who helped lead the St. Louis Cardinals to championships in the 1960s.

The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that Roger Maris and Curt Flood were inducted Thursday in Springfield, along with scout Tom Greenwade. Another Cardinals star from the era, Mike Shannon, was honored as the 26th Missouri Sports Legend with a bust at the museum. Shannon has been a broadcaster for the team for more than four decades.

The ceremony also honored the 1964 and 1967 World Series champion Cardinals teams. Flood and Shannon were on both teams. Maris was traded from the New York Yankees to the Cardinals prior to the 1967 season.

All three also played on the 1968 team that lost the World Series to Detroit.

   Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich says his audit of Brentwood city government revealed sloppy accounting and a lack of documentation at city hall.  Schweich says those factors were behind his rating the St. louis County suburb as "poor."

   The audit came about because of a citizen petition drive that began in 2011. Residents became concerned about the city's finances after former city administrator Chris Seemayer pleaded guilty to stealing $30,000 but continued to collect city benefits.

   St. Louisans had a chance to review the framework of the expansion plans the Saint Louis Zoo is developing for the old Forest Park Hospital complex. Zoo officials unveiled some initial ideas for the 13 1/2 acre area across Interstate 64, south of the Zoo at an open house Wednesday evening.  

   Zoo President and CEO Dr. Jeffrey Bonner explains what will be the first order of business once ground is broken.  "We see immediate activity. We're going to go in and start renovating that seven story parking garage as quickly as we can. We'll do demolition for the main part of the hospital building as quickly as we can."  Bonner went on to say, "The real planning starts now, when we take all of this wonderful input and then develop a strategic plan, what we're going to do for the next five, six or seven years."

    Dr. Bonner says they are open and listening to many suggestions regarding the development.  "I can see a commercial presence," he said.  "I can see not doing it too, but I think it would be more welcoming place if there were certain services that we could provide for our visitors and, for that matter, neighbors and other people nearby."

   The start date for renovations has not been determined.

Grab your friends and family for lunch, dinner or happy hour and help raise money and awareness in the first "Dine for Relief" in support of the fight against Scleroderma.  

Scleroderma comes from two Greek words: “sclero” meaning hard, and “derma” meaning skin.  Scleroderma is a chronic autoimmune disorder which means the body's tissues are attacked by its own immune system.  Scleroderma is an overproduction of collagen that can result in thickening or tightening of skin and scarring of internal organs. 

Participating restaurants will donate a percentage of the check to The Relief Foundation started by St. Louis Scleroderma patient, Kelly Ellison.

In order for The Relief Foundation to benefit, you must take a restaurant-specific flyer with you when you dine. Go to www.relief-foundation.org

Participating restaurants are:

Monday, April 29 

California Pizza Kitchen

All of the street, bridge and interstate improvements planned for downtown St. Louis are on track to be finished on time.  That was the message from Missouri and Illinois transportation engineers when they briefed the East-West Gateway Council of Governments Wednesday.  

   High water on the Mississippi River has caused some delays for crews building the new River Bridge, but project officials say the work continues and they still expect to finish by early next year.  

   Some of the other projects planned for downtown St. Louis over the next two years include the park that will cap the I-70 depressed lanes, new ramps connecting I-70 and I-55 to the Poplar Street Bridge and a year-long resurfacing project on the MLK bridge.
