   Health officials are reminding residents, there is still time to get a flu shot. Due to the high number of cases in the region, Barnes-Jewish Hospital is providing free flu shots to people 18 year old and older next week. The shots will be offered at a two-day clinic.
   This year’s vaccine is well-matched to protect against the strain of H1N1 hitting relatively young and middle-aged adults particularly hard this winter.
   Barnes-Jewish has reported 9 deaths from the flu so far this year and the peak flu season is just getting underway.
   The shots will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, January 20-21, at the O’Fallon Park Rec Complex, 4343 West Florissant, St. Louis.

   Police are digging for evidence at the home of an elderly woman who was found frozen to death in her driveway last weekend.  Glen Carbon police say their investigation isn't related to the death of 83 year old Mary Kampwerth.  

   Illinois State Police and local officials say they're acting on a tip regarding some type of criminal activity, but won't comment on what the crime was or who may be involved.  

   Investigators using heavy equipment have checked 90-percent of the property, focusing a lot of attention on a pond behind the home.    

   The search of the home and property along Illinois Rte. 159 halted late Tuesday night because of cold and darkness, but investigators say it will resume Wednesday morning.

According to a new survey, Scottrade Center is one of the best stadiums to take in an NHL game.
 
Stadium Journey magazine named Scottrade the fourth best fan experience. The editors ranked the stadiums in the categories of food and beverage, atmosphere, neighborhood, fans, access, return on investment and extras. The magazine said "The enjoyment of attending Blues games keeps getting better and better, and if you are fortunate to attend an NHL game in St. Louis, you will see just how rewarding it is.” Only Xcel Energy Center (Minnesota Wild), Verizon Center (Washington Capitals) and the Tampa Bay Times Forum (Tampa Bay Lightning) were voted higher.
