Some St. Louis cable TV customers may be disappointed Friday when they try to tune in to watch the Cardinal's second NLDS game against the Pirates. That's because it won't be available for most customers with basic cable.
The 1:00 p.m. game will air on MLB Network, which isn't available to everyone. Charter customers will need a cable box and the select tier or higher subscription. AT&T subscribers with the two highest-level tiers get MLB. DirectTV customers must have a choice tier or better to see the game. And Dish Network subscribers will need at least a top 200 package or a separate sports package.
Viewers can check with their television providers to find out if MLB Network is included in their subscription, or check MLB's local listings at: www.FindMLBNetwork.com.
Two Missouri residents are among five people killed in a rock slide on a Colorado hiking trail. Chaffee County Sheriff Pete Palmer says all five were members of an extended family.
The sheriff's department reports that 10 year old Baigen Walker and 22 year old Paris Walkup, both of Birch Tree, Missouri, were among the dead.
Their aunt and uncle, 45 year old Dawna Johnson, 46 year old Dwayne Johnson, and the couple's 18 year old daughter, Kiowa-Rain Johnson were also killed.
All of the victim's bodies have now been recovered.
The Johnson's 13 year old daughter, Gracie survived the slide with a broken leg.
After a drug scandal rocked the county courthouse, St. Clair County officials are expanding their drug testing program. The board decided unanimously Monday night to expand the random drug testing to hundreds of additional employees.
Ironically, the new policy won't apply to the circuit court system where the scandal broke. That's because the courts are a separate government entity.
In March, Circuit Judge Joe Christ died while staying with Circuit Judge Michael Cook at a hunting lodge. In May, Cook was charged with heroine possession and a weapons violation. A probation officer and another man are also facing charges.
