Manchester police and the FBI are asking for help identifying a man they believe spiked the soup the Dierbergs at Lafayette Center. Employees pulled the soup container on Thursday, after witnesses saw a man pouring a foreign substance into the container near the salad bar. The soup was removed before any was purchased. The soup-spiker was caught on surveillance video before he could make his escape. He's described as a Caucasian man between 50 and 60 years old with a heavy build and light beard.
A standing-room only crowd will have to come back another night to see the conclusion of Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul's impeachment hearing. Proceedings lasted for a little more than six hours last night. Hundreds of residents and spectators packed the Ellisville Elementary School gymnasium, which was chosen to host the event because of the expected size of the crowd. Ellisville City Counsel members are seeking to remove the 32-year-old Mayor for office, claiming he abused and overreached his authority. Paul's lawyer Chet Pleban unsuccessfully tried several methods to get the hearing thrown out. Pleban says the counsel is biased and the lawyer for the prosecution was illegally chosen. All of Pleban's objections were overruled. The hearing is scheduled to resume tonight at 7:00.
(ST. LOUIS) – St. Louis Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Monday the club has acquired defenseman Jay Bouwmeester from Calgary in exchange for minor league defenseman Mark Cundari, the rights to goaltender Reto Berra as well as a conditional 1st round pick in 2013. If the Blues miss the playoffs this season, the Flames will receive the Blues' fourth round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft and St. Louis' first round pick in the 2014 draft.
“We've been looking to acquire a top left handed defenseman and Jay represents that and is an elite player in our game,” said Armstrong.
Bouwmeester, 29, has dressed in 33 games for the Flames this season posting 15 points (six goals, nine assists) and 16 penalty minutes while ranking 13th among all defenseman in time on ice per game (25:09). The 6’4, 212-pound defenseman has appeared in 10 National Hockey League (NHL) season, including stints with Florida and Calgary, recording 300 points (71 goals, 229 assists) and 463 penalty minutes in 750 career games. In addition, Bouwmeester has played in 621 consecutive NHL games.
The Edmonton, Alberta native was originally drafted by Florida in the first round (3rd overall) of the 2002 Entry Draft. Bouwmeester will not count against the Blues 23 man roster until he clears through immigration procedures.
