   Witnesses are calling it a frightening situation.  

   A toddler stopped traffic on Southwest Avenue in south St. Louis Monday.  Fox 2 News reports that the child had been in the care of the Top of the Hill Daycare in the 5800 block of Southwest, when he wandered into the middle of the street.  

   One witness says the child in the street wasn't the only thing that was disturbing. "And on the curb, probably the hero in this thing, was a little girl, who was probably about five, holding back other toddlers from running into the street."

   Several cars stopped, their drivers corralling the child and getting him out of the road, then calling police.

   Police are now investigating.  

   The daycare has a sign that reads “state licensed,” but according to the Department of Health And Senior Services, that license expired at the end of March.  Police say the daycare is licensed with the city of St. Louis.

   The St. Louis Cardinals make it a habit to honor others before many of the team's home games.  But Monday night, it was the baseball franchise that was honored.  

   The Environmental Protection Agency recognized the team with a plaque for their leadership in food recovery and recycling.  

   By composting leftovers, like old hot dogs, and donating unused, uncooked food to food pantries, the team has kept 2000 tons of waste out of landfills.  According to the EPA, that’s far and away the best of any pro sports franchise.

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois farmers still can't begin planting their corn crops due to muddy fields caused by the heavy rains that inundated the state in recent weeks.

   The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that as of Monday there's been no significant planting done in Illinois because many fields are simply too wet for farmers to get out in them in tractors.

   The USDA says just 1 percent of the state's corn crop has been sown. This time last year, three-quarter of the state's cornfields were planted, more than double the five-year average of 36 percent.

   Nationwide among key farming states, 4 percent of the corn crop is in the ground, down from 49 percent a year ago at this time.

   There's more fallout from an attack on a student inside a community college restroom.  

   St. Louis Community College Chancellor Myrtle Dorsey announced in a letter Monday that the president of the Meramec campus, where the attack occurred, has resigned.  Meramec President George Wasson's resignation is effective immediately.  

   This follows sharp criticism about the college’s handling of the attack.  The suspect, 18 year old Jevon Mallory, had been taken into custody, immediately after the incident, but was released by campus police with a warning.  

   He was re-arrested five days later and is currently in jail, facing felony assault charges.

   Another issue of contention is the fact that no campus alerts had been issued after the attack.  

   Wildwood Campus President Pam McIntyre will take over as interim president of the Meramec campus during a search for Wasson’s replacement. Wildwood’s vice president will be interim president of that campus.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Missouri's two U.S. senators want the Pentagon to reconsider a proposed troop realignment that could reduce the number of soldiers stationed at Fort Leonard Wood in south-central Missouri by nearly 4,000.
 
   Republican Sen. Roy Blunt and Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, wrote a joint letter Monday to U.S. Army Secretary John McHugh saying they're concerned about possible plans to reconfigure brigade combat teams at the Pulaski County installation. A preliminary report by the Army's Environmental Command includes a possible force reduction of 3,900 of the more than 27,000 troops at Fort Leonard Wood in fiscal year 2011. Blunt and McCaskill are on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
 
   The Army is holding a public meeting on the proposal Tuesday evening at Fort Leonard Wood.

 ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A St. Charles man charged in the death of a 4-month-old girl now faces additional charges, including first-degree murder and forcible sodomy.

 

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Monday that 24-year-old Jordan Lafayette Prince is also charged with child abuse in the baby's December 2012 death. He was originally charged with second-degree murder and endangering the welfare of a child.

 

   Court records show that the cause of death was asphyxiation, but the child also suffered serious injuries related to sodomy, which caused internal bleeding.

 

   Prince told police he became frustrated with the baby because she wouldn't stop crying. He's been jailed on 150,000, cash bail.

 

   A lawyer representing Prince didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Monday.

The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have purchased the contract of right-handed pitcher Seth Maness  from Memphis (AAA) and optioned left-handed pitcher Marc Rzepczynski to the triple-A club.   Maness, 24, was the Cardinals Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2012 and will be making his Major League debut with his first appearance.

Maness was 2-2 with a 4.32 ERA in four starts at Memphis this season, striking out 18 and walking just three in 25.0 innings pitched.  Maness was an 11th round selection for the Cardinals out of East Carolina University in 2011.

The 6-0, 190-pound North Carolina native has displayed impeccable control throughout his pro career, allowing just 18 total walks in 247.2 innings pitched.   Maness worked six or more innings in each of his four starts at Memphis and has done so in 27 of his 38 career minor league starts.

Rzepczynski made nine appearances to begin the 2013 season with St. Louis, allowing seven runs in 8.0 innings of work with no decisions.

Maness will join the Cardinals for tonight’s series opener against the Reds and will wear uniform # 61.
