St. Louis City police continue an effort to connect with residents in crime-ridden neighborhoods. Chief Sam Dotson and other officers along with various city employees were knocking on doors in the Vandeventer neighborhood of north St. Louis Tuesday morning. They were handing out CrimeStoppers information, talking with residents and offering city services like street cleaning and tree removal. Chief Dotson says that fighting crime is a team effort.

"That's why we've brought a significant show of force to the neighborhood, so the criminal element sees us," Dotson tells KTRS's Michael Golde. "We haven't given up on this neighborhood."

A mobile command van was also stationed in the area, and apparently for good reason. Right in front of the van, an officer spotted a .40 caliber shell casing laying in the middle of West Evans Avenue.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Some Republicans in the Missouri House say a veto override appears likely for a high-profile gun bill, but the odds remain uncertain for a tax-cutting measure after a meeting of GOP lawmakers.

   House Republicans who attended a private weekend caucus said Monday that there was a lot of discussion about the income tax cut vetoed by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.

   The bill's sponsor, Rep. T.J. Berry of Kearney, says he feels more optimistic about the prospects of an override. But the meeting may not have changed too many minds. Rep. Don Phillips, of Kimberling City, says he still plans to vote "no."

   Rep. Doug Funderburk, of St. Peters, says his bill attempting to nullify some federal gun-control laws received little Republican opposition and appears poised for a veto override.

   EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - The chief federal judge in southern Illinois is warning citizens not to fall for a telephone scam involving jury duty and possible identity theft.

   U.S. District Judge David Herndon says the caller poses as a court official and threatens prosecution for shirking jury duty. The caller then tries to extract confidential data from the call's recipient.

   Herndon warns the calls don't involve actual court officials, are bogus and could be used for identity theft and fraud if the person called divulges such things as his or her Social Security or credit card numbers.

   The judge adds federal courts don't require anyone to provide sensitive information by telephone, with most legitimate contact taking place by mail.

   Herndon urges anyone who gets such a call to notify the local federal court clerk.

   The FBI is investigating a former metro-east official accused of embezzling more than $750,000 over the last 10 years.

FULTON, Mo. (AP) - A central Missouri nuclear power plant is back on line slightly more than three weeks after a small fire.

Ameren Missouri said Monday its Callaway Energy Center near Fulton has resumed operation.

The Callaway County reactor supplies about 20 percent of the electricity Ameren sells to its 1.2 million customers. Other Ameren plants made up for the lost power while the nuclear plant was offline.

The reactor shut down automatically the night of July 26 when power cables that connect the plant to the electric grid shorted, causing the small fire.

Ameren said the arc was caused by a ventilation louver that dislodged and moved close to the cables. The utility says inspections showed no need to replace major equipment.
