US EMPLOYERS ADD 175K JOBS DESPITE HARSH WEATHER

Friday, 07 March 2014 07:37 Published in National News

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. hiring improved in February from the previous two months despite a blast of wintry weather, likely renewing hopes that growth will accelerate this year.

The Labor Department says employers added 175,000 jobs last month, up from just 129,000 in January, which was revised up from 113,000.

The unemployment rate rose to 6.7 percent from a five-year low 6.6 percent. More Americans started looking for work but didn't find jobs. That's still an encouraging sign because more job hunters suggest that people were more optimistic about their prospects.

The figures were a welcome surprise after recent economic reports showed that harsh weather closed factories, lowered auto sales, and caused existing-home sales to plummet.

Cole's goal, assist lead Blues over Predators 2-1

Thursday, 06 March 2014 23:11 Published in Sports
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Ian Cole had a goal and an assist to lead the St. Louis Blues to their third straight win, 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.
 
Magnus Paajarvi had the other goal for the Blues, who have won all four of their games against Nashville this season.
 
Ryan Miller stopped 20 shots to win his third game in as many starts since being acquired from the Buffalo Sabres on Friday. Nick Spaling scored for the Predators, losers of six of seven.
 
Cole scored the game's first goal at 4:03 of the opening period after Steve Ott won a faceoff in the left circle and Cole beat Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne with a wrist shot high to the far side.
 
Ott's assist was his first point as a Blue.
 
Nashville drew even at 10:28 of the first on Spaling's 11th goal of the season.
 
From the right half boards, Patric Hornqvist sent a pass in front, where Spaling tipped the puck high over Miller's right shoulder.
 
St. Louis regained the lead at 8:18 of the second on Paajarvi's sixth of the season.
 
Paajarvi took a pass from Roman Polak in the neutral zone and then skated into the Nashville zone on the right side, where he cut into the right faceoff circle and beat Rinne with a quick wrist shot.
 
Alexander Steen was awarded a penalty shot at 15:27 of the second period after being fouled from behind on a breakaway, but Rinne gloved down Steen's wrist shot from the right side.
 
Steen has converted one of two penalty shot attempts this season, while Rinne has turned aside the two that he has faced.
 
NOTES: Hornqvist's assist was the 100th of his career. . Nashville C Mike Fisher has points in five consecutive games, equaling a season high. . The Blues are 34-1-4 when scoring first this season
 

Sierra Club sues Ameren

Thursday, 06 March 2014 11:10 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A national environmental group is suing a St. Louis-based utility, claiming thousands of violations of federal clean air laws.
 
The Sierra Club filed a federal lawsuit against the Ameren Corporation Wednesday in St. Louis. The complaint seeks to compel Ameren to reduce pollution at three Missouri power plants and asks the court to levy financial penalties for past violations.
 
The lawsuit says Ameren's own testing shows nearly 10,000 violations since 2009 at the utility's Meramec power plant in St. Louis County, the Rush Island plant in Jefferson County, and the Labadie (LA-buh-dee) plant in Franklin County.
 
Ameren's vice president of environmental services, Mike Menne, says the suit has no merit. He says a federal court in Texas recently rejected a similar case filed by the Sierra Club.
