Eckert's pushes back strawberry season

Tuesday, 07 May 2013 12:33 Published in Local News

Cloudy skies and heavy rain over the past few weeks have delayed the strawberry harvest at Eckert's Orchards. The annual strawberry festival at the local orchard has been pushed back this season.

Last year, drought had a negative impact on the strawberry crop. This season's cold and wet weather is having a similar negative impact.

A man convicted for his role in a deadly version of the Knockout Game has been sentenced to 55 years in prison. 20-year-old Elex Murphy was found guilty last month of killing an elderly immigrant and injuring his wife while the two were walking home from a grocery store in Dutchtown. Prosecutors said Murphy and a group of friends approached the couple near Chippewa and Spring Streets, when Murphy punched 72-year-old Hoang Nguyen in the face. He later died from his injuries. 

Chess Championships being held in St. Louis

Thursday, 02 May 2013 10:25 Published in Local News

Chess players and fans from around the world are gathering in St. Louis for the chess circuit's biggest event of the year. 

For the fifth year in a row, the US and US Women's Chess Championships are being held at the The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis at 4657 Maryland Avenue in the Central West End.

Fox Sports Midwest will broadcast the action over a live stream. If you plan on checking out the action in person, tickets to the tournament are $10 per round. 

One of the biggest names in the tournament this year is one of the smallest people. 12-year-old Sam Sevian from California is the current, reigning, under-12 world champion. Sevian was extended a wildcard invitation to play in the tournament. 

Club spokesman Mike Wilmering says chess is putting St. Louis on the map.  

"St. Louis really has become recognized as the chess epicenter internationally," Wilmering said. "I think more people are starting to open up their eyes and realize we have a really great thing here in St. Louis." 

Opening ceremonies kick off tonight at 6:00pm. Play continues through May 13.
