Drivers in Chesterfield Valley have some headaches ahead.

Starting Wednesday drivers in both directions on Kehrs Mill Road will have to share a single lane of traffic. The consolidation will take place between Jeffrey's Crossing Lane and Courtyard Mill Lane.

The closure is part of an $8.3 million realignment of Kehrs Mill that will make room for a new lane of traffic on the road. Temporary electronic signals will be placed to control the flow of traffic. The one-lane will start at noon Wednesday.

PRAGUE (AP) - The state-owned Czech brewery Budejovicky Budvar NP says an Italian court has banned its bitter rival Anheuser-Busch InBev from using the Budweiser trademark in that country in the latest ruling in their long legal battle over the brand name.

At the same time, Budvar says the Supreme Court allows the Czech brewer to return to the Italian market with its Budweiser Budvar lager in what Budvar director Jiri Bocek calls "a great victory."

The court's ruling means the end of two cases in which AB InBev challenged Budvar's Budweiser trademark in Italy and the right of its importers to use the names of Bud and Budweiser for selling Czech beer.

Budvar has been fighting for over a century with Anheuser-Busch over use of the Budweiser brand.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A Jefferson County Democrat says she plans to seek her party's nomination in Missouri's 8th Congressional District election next year.

The Southeast Missourian reports that DeSoto resident Barbara Stocker will formally announce her candidacy on Wednesday morning at the Cape Girardeau federal courthouse. Stocker is a retired biochemist who worked at the former Ralston Purina Company as well as the Monsanto Company in the St. Louis area. She calls herself a "kind-hearted old lady who wants to make government work again."

Salem Republican Rep. Jason Smith won a special election in June and plans to seek re-election in 2014.  He is finishing the unexpired term of Jo Ann Emerson, who resigned.

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder is also considering the congressional race after unsuccessfully seeking to replace Emerson.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former procurement officer for the Boeing Co. based in Missouri is accused of providing inside information to help a Washington state subcontractor win more than $2 million in aircraft parts orders.

An indictment filed in federal court in St. Louis charges Deon E. Anderson, of the St. Louis area, and Jeffrey Lavelle, of Mukilteo, Wash., with mail fraud and wire fraud. Lavelle owned and operated J.L. Manufacturing, a machine shop in Everett, Wash.

The indictment says Anderson gave J.L. Manufacturing and Lavelle non-public competitor bid and historical price information for Boeing military aircraft order requests for quotes.

It says Lavelle used the information to submit about nine different bids on behalf of his company to Boeing. The indictment says that in return Lavelle paid cash to Anderson.

The indictment made public Monday also charges Robert "Bobby" Diaz Jr., of Alta Loma, Calif., and William P. Boozer, of Hacienda Heights, Calif.

A call left with Lavelle at J.L. Manufacturing Tuesday morning was not immediately returned.

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Southwestern Illinois authorities say a 28-year-old man stabbed two people during a weekend home invasion in what may be a case of mistaken identity.

Madison County prosecutors charged Grant Connor of Bridgeview with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and home invasion.

State's Attorney Tom Gibbons says Connor knocked on a Glen Carbon home's door claiming to have a disabled car. Then he charged, stabbing a 35-year-old man who offered to let him use the telephone.

That victim managed to grab a knife and stabbed Connor in the throat while a 33-year-old woman tried to intervene before also being stabbed.

The victims were released from a hospital. Investigators say Connor may have been searching for someone else with a similar name.

Court records don't show whether Connor has an attorney

Keep your pennies in your pocket!  That is the message from Metro Transit.

Beginning Monday pennies will no longer be accepted as payment on its MetroBus vehicles. Several months ago, the agency began phasing out rarely used 50-cent coins and $2 bills.

New fareboxes will still accept $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills, along with nickels, dimes, quarters and dollar coins. As with the old equipment, the new fareboxes will require exact change or a valid Metro pass or ticket.

The new machines provide more detailed passenger boarding information which will allow Metro to plan routes to better meet customer needs.

In the future, the new system will also allow customers to use faster and more convenient smart card technology payment methods.

Habitat for Humanity will be dedicating five new homes in the historic Cardondelet neighborhood this morning. The projects were almost never completed after thieves stole more than $18,000 dollars worth of power tools from two of the construction sites last spring. In late April, thieves broke into a trailer parked in front of a home on Virginia Avenue and stole $13,000 worth of tools. Then in early May, thieves walked away with tools and a generator from a home on Michigan Avenue. A local Home Depot store replaced all of the stolen items after Habitat appealed to the public for help. Habitat for Humanity has built over 300 homes in the St. Louis area.

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois woman faces up to 60 years in prison after being convicted of playing a role in the 2011 carjacking and slaying of a bingo-playing grandmother.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports a St. Clair County Circuit judge found 39-year-old Belleville resident LaTosha Cunningham guilty of murder.

A co-defendant, 21-year-old DaQuan Barnes, has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder related to the death of 85-year-old Yoko Cullen. He awaits sentencing Oct. 30.

Authorities allege that Barnes, Cunningham and another man staked out waited for Cullen outside a Collinsville bingo hall where one of them knew she played, then stopped her from driving away.

Authorities say Cullen was forced into her trunk and driven to East St. Louis, where her car was set on fire while she was inside.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A downtown St. Louis bridge referred to by locals using its geographic designation has been renamed for a prominent area politician.

What locals call the Poplar Street Bridge was technically known as the Bernard F. Dickmann Bridge after a former St. Louis mayor. But the bridge spanning the Mississippi River and connecting St. Louis to Illinois will now be officially known as the Congressman William L. Clay Sr. Bridge.

Clay is a former Democratic congressman and civil rights leader who was Missouri's first black congressman and spent more than three decades in the U.S. House of Representatives.

He attended a Monday morning dedication ceremony along with Mayor Francis Slay, Gov. Jay Nixon and Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr., the honoree's son.

Civilian employees, who were furloughed from Scott Air Force Base last week, are back at work.  Scott spokeswoman Karen Petitt says the 35-hundred affected workers were notified Sunday that they should be back on the job today.

The decision came after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel this weekend ordered 350,000 military personnel, furloughed by the federal government's shutdown, back on the job.  Those workers at Scott represent about two-thirds of the installation's non-military staff of 13,000 employees.  Scott Air Force Base is one of the region's largest employers.
