   A controversial contract that would bring two major music festivals to downtown St. Louis is moving forward in the Board of Aldermen.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the convention and tourism committee Wednesday gave 8-0 approval to a bill that would give Summer Rocks LLC exclusive access to the Gateway Mall over Memorial Day and Labor Day for music festivals.  

   The bill would also prevent the city from allowing another for profit music event anytime during the summer.

   Dozens of residents and local musicians voiced their opposition to the 20 year lease during a three hour hearing before the committee vote.  

   The measure now moves to the full Board of Aldermen, who aren't expected to vote on it until sometime in April.

   KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — The Wall Street Journal is reporting that U.S. investigators suspect a missing Malaysian jetliner flew on for four hours once it lost contact with air traffic controllers.
   The suspicion is based on data from the plane's engines that are automatically downloaded and transmitted to the ground as part of routine maintenance programs.
   The report raises questions as to why the Boeing 777 was flying like that, and if anyone was in control during that time.
   The plane's last known confirmed position was roughly halfway between Malaysia and Vietnam.
   Malaysian authorities have since said they tracked what could have been the plane changing course and heading west.
   Investigators have not ruled out any possible cause to explain the disappearance of the plane and the 239 people on board.
