It appears Alton High School fell victim to senior pranks overnight. When custodians arrived at the school this morning, they discovered buildings and trees covered with toilet paper and graffiti.

County cop accused of targeting blacks, fired

Tuesday, 14 May 2013 09:04 Published in Local News

A St. Louis County police lieutenant has been fired, nearly six months after accusations that he ordered officers to target black people. Patrick Hayes was fired on Monday following a six-month internal investigation that began with an anonymous tip. According to the anonymous letter sent last December, Hayes ordered his officers to arrest  black people near the South County Center and a Wal-Mart store in the area. Hayes' attorney has vowed to appeal. 

Bridgeton Landfill debate continues

Monday, 13 May 2013 12:54 Published in Local News

Residents and environmental groups are voicing their concern over the continuing stench coming from the Bridgeton Landfill. 

 

Homeowners within the so-called stink radius say the problem is only getting worse and they worry about the possible hazards. Meanwhile, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster has filed a law suit against Republic Services, the owners of the Landfill, saying they violated environmental law. Now the owners are offering hundreds of households the option of relocating to a hotel as the work continues. Darlene Martin has lived in the area for 33-years and she doesn't see that changing anytime soon.

 

"For years we've been trying to sell our house. That's what I want personally is to get out of there. And what are the chances now? I have no chance of selling the house now."

 

Work at the landfill is scheduled to resume May 20th. A first hearing against Republic Services is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
