   Seventeen East St. Louis firefighters will lose their jobs at the end of the month.  The Belleville News-Democrat reports that City Manager Deletra Hudson sent a letter to the firefighters saying the city  "has been forced to make some difficult financial decisions to meet its budgetary obligations."  

   The firefighters had been hired with federal grant money.  When the grant ran out in March, East St. Louis Mayor Alvin Parks said the city found some extra money to keep the firefighters on the job until the end of September.  

   Parks told the paper that he expects eight of the laid off firefighters to be called back when the new city budget kicks in January 1st.

   East St. Louis currently employs 54 firefighters.

   WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (AP) - The water has gone down but the need for volunteers to clean up damaged homes remains high in a south-central Missouri county swamped by last month's floods.

   The Pulaski County town of Waynesville was among the hardest hit amid several days of heavy rain in early August.

   Isabel Lambert is the volunteer coordinator for the county's Community Organizations Active in Disaster, or COAD. COADs are public-private partnerships that respond to disasters.

   Lambert said Thursday that more than 230 homes in the Waynesville still have mold, ruined drywall and other problems. She's seeking volunteers to gather at 9 a.m. Friday and Saturday and again Wednesday through Saturday for the next two weeks at Waynesville City Park to help with cleanup.

   For more information, send email to the Pulaski County COAD: pulaskicoad@gmail.com or call 573-337-2286.

A main throughway in north St. Louis was closed for hours today as crews dealt with a road collapse.

It appears that a fire line broke a water pipe under the road near the intersection of North Broadway and North Market. The broken pipe opened up a hole in the street that is about 80 feet long, 10 feet wife, and 8 feet deep.  

North Broadway has been reopened, but the southbound lanes remain closed.

DEXTER, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri man who says he had sexual contact with as many 300 people since being diagnosed with HIV has pleaded not guilty to infecting another man with the virus.

David Mangum entered the plea Thursday. Stoddard County prosecutor Russell Oliver says more potential victims have come forward since Mangum was charged last week with recklessly infecting another with HIV, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Oliver says additional charges are expected. Mangum's attorney didn't return messages.

Court documents allege Mangum told detectives in Dexter, a small town in southeast Missouri, that he had unprotected sex with as many as 300 partners since he was diagnosed a decade ago. As many as 60 of those contacts allegedly occurred after he moved to Missouri from Dallas in 2011.

MINDENMINES, Mo. (AP) - A homely bird with a rather unappetizing diet will get its due when a southwest Missouri state park celebrates International Vulture Awareness Day.

The Carthage Press reports the staff at Prairie State Park in western Barton County has planned several activities for Saturday's observance, most of them aimed at children.

Vulture Awareness Day was started by bird conservation groups in England and South Africa. It's now observed by zoos, wildlife centers and other organizations around the world.

Prairie State Park specialist Dana Hoisington says vultures help keep the environment healthy by feasting on dead animals that other carnivores are unable to eat.

Along with vulture-related projects, park employees hope to attract a real vulture or two Saturday by placing a ripe carcass a careful distance from the visitors' center.
