   The company that's taking over Ameren's coal-fired power plants in Illinois wants to take over their 5 year pollution waiver as well.  

   Dynegy Inc. agreed to acquire the plants six months after the Illinois Pollution Control Board granted a variance giving Ameren more time to meet stricter air pollution limits at their central and southern Illinois plants.  

   Ameren and Dynegy are expected to argue that the subsidiary formed to acquire the plants can't afford the costly pollution controls in a depressed power market, and would have to close some plants if a waiver isn't granted.

   Several St. Peters residents are calling for their alderman to resign after he was charged with marijuana possession.  Alderman Tommy Roberts was charged after St. Peters police found marijuana in his home August 7th.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that about a half-dozen residents called for Roberts resignation at Thursday night's meeting of the Board of Aldermen.  None of the aldermen responded to the comments last night.  

   Roberts, who has Hodgkin's lymphoma, a form of cancer, said shortly after his arrest that the marijuana possession was "a medical issue."

   Some St. Peters homeowners are upset after a controversial cell phone tower was approved by the Board of Aldermen on a 6-2 vote Thursday night.  

   It was the second time St. Charles Tower had applied for a special use permit to build a 90 -foot tower in the 700 block of Jungerman Road.  The first time, the permit was denied because of it's proximity to a daycare.  

   But that was before Missouri's new Uniform Wireless Communications Infrastructure Deployment Act, which took affect at the end of August.  The legislation makes it more difficult for local communities to block cell tower construction.

   The next phase of work on the new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge will require a heavily traveled interstate to be shut down for more than a week.  

   At 9 p.m. Friday, Illinois transportation crews plan to close eastbound I-64 from the I-55/70 split to 18th Street.  It's expected to remain closed until 9 a.m. on Monday, September 23rd.  

   IDOT officials say the closure is necessary so that crews can build ramps to the new bridge, and drivers should expect long delays until the work is done.   

   The primary detour is eastbound on I-55/70 to I-255 south, which will add five-to-ten minutes during off-peak hours.  Drivers who can avoid the area over the next nine days are advised to do so.
