SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A Springfield man is one of four soldiers killed in an attack in Afghanistan.

The Army announced Tuesday that 24-year-old Special Agent Joseph M. Peters and the three other soldiers died Sunday in Kandahar Province when their unit was hit by an improvised explosive device.

Peters was assigned to the 5th Military Police Battalion from Vicenza, Italy. He was a special agent assigned to the 286th Military Police Detachment.

He served two deployments in Iraq before being assigned to Afghanistan.

Peters is survived by a wife and 20-month-old son.

Financial firm fined 200K over free tickets

Tuesday, 08 October 2013 16:09 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Chesterfield-based financial services firm has been fined $200,000 by securities regulators for giving away thousands of free sports tickets to school board members, superintendents and other government officials.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that municipal bond underwriter L.J. Hart & Company was fined by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority for violating so-called "pay for play" rules designed to keep corruption out of the municipal bond business.

The company and the independent regulator declined to identify the ticket recipients.  The company's past clients include the Normandy, Lincoln County, Winfield, Warren County, Grandview, Windsor, Hillsboro and Festus school districts.

School officials received tickets to St. Louis Cardinals, Rams and Blues games, as well as pro contests in Kansas City.

A tournament that hosts the best amateur junior golfers in the world, will continue to call St. Louis home.

The Missouri Bluffs Golf Club in St. Charles will host the American Junior Golf Association's St. Louis Classic. The tournament runs June 2-5 in 2014 and will return to the Bluffs in 2015 and 2016.

Missouri Bluffs Head PGA Professional Ty Zimmerman says the St. Louis area will be getting one of the nation's top junior golf events.

"This is one of the top junior tours of the world, and we're very excited for these young men and women to come here to the Missouri Bluffs and compete on this challenging Tom Fazio design in the first week of June" says Zimmerman.

The St. Louis Classic will feature 96 of the top-ranked men's and women's junior golfers, with an additional 100 local golfers competing for an opportunity to play in the tournament.
