ST. LOUIS (AP) - An environmental group says it plans to soon sue utility provider Ameren over what it calls repeated violations of federal air pollution standards.
 
The Sierra Club told Ameren Corp. it plans legal action in the next 60 days over what the group says are nearly 10,000 violations of the Clean Air Act since 2008 at coal-fired power plants in St. Louis, Jefferson and Franklin counties
 
The alleged violations involve the amount of soot released from smokestacks at the Meramec, Labadie and Rush Island plants.
 
A company official says Ameren follows EPA air pollution standards and that the excessive releases cited by the Sierra Club "occur infrequently."
 
Environmental groups have filed similar lawsuits in other states, including Illinois. The 60-day notice is required under federal law to allow for possible negotiations.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - St. Charles County drivers pulled over at several recent safety checkpoints received something other than the usual verbal warnings, traffic citations or even drunk-driving tickets.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that government subcontractors working on behalf of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration instead asked motorists to voluntarily submit blood and saliva samples in exchange for cash. Two off-duty county sheriff's deputies in marked patrol cars initially flagged down the drivers.
 
The St. Charles County Sheriff's Department now says it will no longer participate in future surveys. Lt. Dave Tiefenbrunn acknowledges some motorists may have thought participation was mandatory, though no action was taken against drivers who refused to stop.
 
Impaired drivers were not arrested. Instead, survey takers were supposed to make sure such drivers got home safely.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Prosecutors will no longer seek the death penalty against a southwest Missouri man who is charged with killing a classmate.
 
Prosecutors said Wednesday that they dropped the possibility of capital punishment after 20-year-old Gabriel Roche of Republic agreed to have his case decided by a judge, not a jury.
 
Roche is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the December 2011 death of 17-year-old Weston North. Roche took his classmate to a secluded area and stabbed him before slitting his throat.
 
Prosecutors say Roche believed North was a police informant.
 
The Springfield News-Leader reports Roche's attorneys didn't dispute that their client killed North. They asked the judge to consider charging him with second-degree murder, arguing that Roche was on drugs and hallucinating during the killing.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Sens. Claire McCaskill and Roy Blunt are taking different approaches to buying health care policies through new online marketplaces.
 
The federal health care law requires members of Congress and their staff to get insurance through a health insurance exchange.
 
Blunt says he already has selected a plan through the District of Columbia's exchange. He will receive an employer contribution to put toward the purchase price, but the Republican senator says he will donate an equal amount to charity.
 
McCaskill says she plans to shop next week for a policy for herself and two daughters on the Missouri exchange, which is run by the federal government. The Democratic senator won't receive an employer contribution for her policy.

FREEBURG, Ill. (AP) - A state arbitrator says a southwestern Illinois village acted appropriately when officials fired two police officers who pulled pranks on colleagues, broke into the evidence locker and damaged police property.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports arbitrator Gerard Fowler has ruled the conduct of John Blomenkamp and Steve Burrows "was so egregious and so harmful to the prosecution of future cases that the village was well advised to terminate their employment as police officers."
 A lawyer for the officers had argued that 4,300-resident St. Clair County village's actions against his clients may have been politically motivated by their union activities.
Blomenkamp and Burrows had sought their jobs back and pay retroactive to their firings in August of last year.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County judge has ordered the county to pay $5.9 million to three trash haulers in a dispute over changes the county made in its trash districts five years ago.
 
Judge Barbara Wallace on Wednesday ordered that the county to pay $4.9 million to Waste Management of Missouri, $590,000 to American Eagle Waste Industries and $384,000 to Meridian Waste Services.
 
The trash haulers sued the county in 2008 in a case that went to the Missouri Supreme Court. They argued that the county broke a state law by not giving the haulers two years' notice before changing trash districts in unincorporated parts of the county.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports County Counselor Patricia Redington indicated the county will "aggressively pursue" further legal action in the case.
