ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis and Chicago are both pursuing the global headquarters of agribusiness giant Archer Daniels Midland Co., which last week announced it needed better access to its global customers and an international airport.
ADM currently is based in the central Illinois city of Decatur, roughly halfway between Chicago and St. Louis. The company is so far staying mum about where it wants to base 200 executive and information technology jobs.
A St. Louis man redefined the phrase, out of the frying pan and into the fire.
Clayton police were conducting a traffic stop when the suspect jumped out of his car and started run. He just didn't have a very good sense of direction...he ran across the street and directly into the St. Louis County Police headquarters.
Officers inside the building took the man into custody and charges are pending.
