   St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley will have to try again to fill a vacant seat on the Board of Police Commissioners.  That after the County Council rejected one of two nominees Tuesday night.  

   The council unanimously approved former Hazelwood Mayor T.R. Carr, but refused to seat former MSD chief Robert Baer.  

   Republican Councilman Greg Quinn said that his objections had centered on Baer's connection to Dooley campaign manager John Temporiti.  Quinn suggested that Baer's appointment was part of a scheme to fire Police Chief Tim Fitch in retaliation for the chief calling in the FBI to investigate the Gregory Sansone-Police Crime Lab contract scandal.

   Dooley called Quinn's reasoning "insulting."

   Two seats remain vacant on the police board.

   Missouri's execution of the "Good Samaritan Killer" remains on hold.  

   Allen Nicklasson had been scheduled to die by lethal injection at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday for killing businessman Richard Drummond in 1994.  Drummond was shot to death after stopping to help when a car carrying Nicklasson and two others stalled along I-70 in central Missouri.

   Monday night, a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted Nicklasson a stay of execution.     Nicklasson is arguing that he didn't receive adequate legal representation at his trial.

   Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster appealed that stay to the U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday evening.  Koster says the high court told his office that no ruling would be issued before 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday.  

   If the court rules against Nicklasson, he could be executed at any time on Wednesday.

 

  

More radioactive waste discovered at West Lake Landfill

Tuesday, 10 December 2013 04:26 Published in Local News

   The construction of a trench designed to keep the slow smoldering fire at the Bridgeton Landfill away from radioactive soil buried at the West Lake Landfill may have hit a snag.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that EPA testing has revealed more radioactive material at West Lake.  

   The paper reports that Florissant City Engineer Tim Barrett wrote about the newly discovered materials in a letter to Mayor Thomas Schneider.  Barrett wrote that the EPA is expected to release a report on the new findings later this week.  

   Barrett also wrote that the location of the radioactive materials and the results of additional testing will determine how and where the trench will be built.
