   The 2016 Democratic National Convention won't be held in St. Louis.  

   The Gateway City was one of about 30 cities to receive letters inviting them to compete to host the convention.  St. Louis officials plan to decline.  

   Mayor Slay's chief of staff Jeff Rainford tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the city is focused on the private fundraising efforts for the ongoing $380 million Gateway Arch grounds redo.  Rainford says its a really big project and must remain the focus for now.  

   He added that St. Louis might bid for the convention in 2020.

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Maronite Catholic Church in the United States is about to ordain its first married priest.
   A Maronites' spokesman in St. Louis says Pope Francis gave his permission for married Deacon Wissam Akiki to be ordained. The ceremony is set for Thursday.
   Maronites are among more than a dozen Eastern Catholic church groups in the United States. Eastern Catholics accept the authority of the pope, but have many of their own rituals and liturgy.
   Maronites overseas ordain married men. But the practice was banned in the U.S. in the 1920s. The U.S. Maronites' spokesman says the pope made an exception in this case and didn't lift the ban.
   Popes have made exceptions before for other traditions, including for married Anglican clergy who have joined the Catholic Church.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri lawmaker with a seriously ill daughter is encouraging colleagues to pass legislation that could make it easier for patients to gain access to experimental medications.
   A House committee heard testimony Wednesday on legislation by Representative Jim Neely that would let drug manufacturers give or sell medicines still in the investigational stages to patients. Neely says many terminally ill patients are willing to try medicines that don't have approval from the federal Food and Drug Administration. But he says access is limited to those medications.
   Neely is a Cameron physician whose 40 year old daughter is dealing with colon cancer and liver failure. He says the legislation may be too late for his own family but could help others.
   Several parents whose children have had serious illnesses testified for the bill.

   Drivers may still face delays along Interstate 70 near Lambert Airport while police work the scene of a fiery crash on an outer road.  

   Police say the accident on Natural Bridge at Woodson resulted from a police pursuit.  About 2:00 a.m. a car evading a police stop plowed into a light standard and burst into flames.  

   Fox 2 News is reporting that a police officer was shot when emergency crews approached the burning car and tried to put out the fire.  That officer was reportedly wearing a vest and wasn't seriously injured.  Police had to back off until the gunfire subsided.  

   The car was completely destroyed in the fire.  Someone inside that car apparently died, as the St. Louis County Medical Examiner was called to the scene.  

   Natural Bridge Road remains closed at Woodson.  But all lanes of I-70 have reopened in both directions.

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A federal judge says he can't accept a plea deal for a former Illinois judge on heroin and gun charges because the prison term is too light.
 
Michael Cook pleaded guilty in November as part of a deal with prosecutors that called for him to serve 18 months in prison. But on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Joe Billy McDade rejected the deal, saying Cook deserves more prison time.
 
An attorney for the former St. Clair County judge declined to go through with the sentencing. He has three weeks to work out another deal with prosecutors. Cook also can ask for a jury trial.
 
The case involves the death of Associate Judge Joe Christ, who was with Cook at a hunting cabin when he overdosed on cocaine last year.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missourians could buy motorcycles on Sunday under legislation endorsed by a state House panel.
Many states have repealed bans on selling retail on Sunday, but Missouri still prohibits dealers from selling cars, trucks and motorcycles on that day.
The measure endorsed by the House General Laws Committee Tuesday would remove motorcycles from that list. Supporters argue it would make Missouri more competitive with neighboring states, including Kansas, that permit such sales on Sunday.
The legislation now heads to the Rules Committee and is sponsored by Republican Rep. Caleb Jones, of Columbia.
