ASHLAND, Mo. (AP) — One lane of a heavily traveled highway between Jefferson City and Columbia is closed by a rock slide, and officials predict occasional delays for several weeks.

<br><br>

The Missouri Department of Transportation announced the closing of one northbound lane of U.S. 63 on Friday afternoon.

<br><br>

The slide was reported late Thursday along a rock bluff south of Ashland, near the Boone-Callaway county line. MoDOT plans to solicit bids Monday on a contract to stabilize the bluff, with work possibly starting Tuesday.

<br><br>

The northbound lane is expected to remain closed for about 10 days. MoDOT says U.S. 63 will be closed periodically throughout the project, which is expected to be finished in early May.

SUNSET HILLS, Mo. (AP) — The staff at a Goodwill store in St. Louis County has tracked down a couple who accidentally dropped off $5,000 in cash.

KSDK-TV reports the money turned up among bags of donations left in mid-March at the MERS/Goodwill store in Sunset Hills.

An employee found the money and reported it to supervisors, who reviewed surveillance video to narrow down the possible donors.

They turned out to be a couple from Affton who donated six trash bags of items on March 13th. The woman's 96-year-old father had recently passed away, and she didn't notice the cash among the clothing and other items bagged up for donation.

The accidental donors now have their money back.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Air Force says it cost $2.1 million to send two nuclear-capable B-2 bombers on a training exercise over South Korea that was widely viewed as a show of force in response to weeks of threats from North Korea.

<br><br>

The service's Global Strike Command said Friday in a statement that the total flight time for the B-2s was 75 hours. The aircraft made the more than 6,500-mile round trip from Whiteman Air Force Base in Warrensburg, Missouri to a South Korean island range on Thursday.

<br><br>

North Korea has threatened nuclear strikes on Washington and Seoul.

<br><br>

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the decision to send the B-2s for drills with South Korea was part of normal military exercises with a close ally and not intended to provoke a reaction from North Korea.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has signed legislation authorizing tax incentives for big-time sports events and some charitable donations.

<br><br>

Nixon highlighted his support for the charitable tax breaks by traveling to a food bank in Cape Girardeau on Friday. He signed the sports incentives without comment.

<br><br>

The sports legislation authorizes up to $3 million of tax credits annually for organizations that host amateur sporting events such as NCAA tournaments or Olympic trials. Lawmakers hope the cash will help Missouri compete with other states.

<br><br>

The other bill reinstates tax credits for donations to food pantries, child advocacy centers and pregnancy resource centers that had expired in recent years. Nixon says the tax credits can leverage private donations to help "our most vulnerable citizens."

<br><br>

Both bills were passed by the Legislature on March 13.

The impeachment hearing Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul, will continue as planned on Monday night.

<br><br>

A judge ruled against Paul's lawyer, Chet Pleban's request to postpone the hearing. The Post-Dispatch reports that Pleban claimed the city council was biased against Paul and the impeachment proceedings were unconstitutional. The judge said those issues should be raised at the hearing, which is being held one night before the city council elections.

<br><br>

Paul is facing impeachment for several reasons, including allegedly throwing a former council member out of a meeting last year.

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- A southwestern Illinois meat cutter who sued after a prize for his hole in one during a charity golf tournament wasn’t paid out as promised has carded a legal victory.

<br><Br>

The (Alton) Telegraph reports that a Madison County judge has awarded Donald Beiermann of Godfrey an $11,000 judgment against the Alton church that sponsored the tournament and the Godfrey course that hosted it.

<br><Br>

Beiermann scored the ace on the 17th hole, where a sign promised such a feat would win an $11,000 trip for four to California’s Pebble Beach Golf Course.

<br><Br>

A specialty insurer refused to pay, arguing the contract provided that the hole in one must be on a hole at least 165 yards long. Biermann’s ace, witnessed by three companions, was on a hole 149 yards long.

ST. CLAIR, Mo. (AP) - A fat cat that drew international attention when its owner turned him over to a shelter is now living at a sanctuary for hard-to-place animals in eastern Missouri.

<br><Br>

The cat, named Biscuit, weighed 37 pounds when he was taken to the St. Charles shelter. More than 110 people offered to adopt him before he was placed with a couple from Eureka earlier this month.

<br><Br>

However, Biscuit fought with a cat at that home and the couple couldn't keep him. On Saturday, Biscuit was turned over to The Shannon Foundation sanctuary for hard-to-place animals outside St. Clair in Franklin County. He'll stay there permanently, living with about 75 other animals.

<br><Br>

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Biscuit weighed 33.2 pounds on Thursday. His goal weight is 14.8 pounds.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two of the top teams in soccer's English Premier League are coming to St. Louis for an exhibition match.

<br><br>

   The St. Louis Cardinals announced Friday that Busch Stadium will host a game on May 23 between Manchester City and Chelsea.

<br><br>

   St. Louis has a long soccer heritage but has been hurt in recent years because of the lack of an appropriate venue for big-time matches.

<br><br>

   Vicki Bryant, vice president of event services and merchandising for the Cardinals, says the hope is to make a high-profile match an annual event.

<br><br>

   The match will be the first professional, non-baseball sporting event at Busch since the stadium opened in 2006.

<br><br>

   Tickets starting at $30 go on sale Tuesday, with a pre-sale Monday for Cardinals season ticket holders.
