MEHLVILLE, Mo. – The mother of a Mehlville School District kindergartener says Beasley Elementary read a letter to her son—written by another parent, questioning his behavior—but won’t let her see it. The district has another take on the matter. Brandi Ruhland wants to know why the kindergarten teacher read a letter to her son written by a classmate’s parent and she isn’t allowed to see the letter. “It’s ridiculous. Anything shown to a 6-year-old can be shown to their parent,” she […]
ST. LOUIS – On Wednesday, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner said the judge, special prosecutor, and St. Louis police involved in the case against her former lead investigator in the Eric Greitens impeachment case were not playing by the rules. On Thursday, the NAACP and Missionary Baptist State Convention of Missouri backed Gardner, while the St Louis Police Officers Association claimed the circuit attorney is a menace to society. Adolphus Pruitt, president of the St. Louis NAACP, and Pastor […]
ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner is saying enough is enough and defending herself from what she calls attacks from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and its union. Gardner says she wants to set the record straight about an on-going investigation that has nothing to do with her.

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis is considered a frontrunner to land an MLS team. However, it’s not a done deal. Our city has competition. Caroline Kindle-Betz, who is part of the ownership group trying to bring a team to the Gateway to the West, says they’re working as if the team will be given to St. Louis. “It’s Sacramento and St. Louis; that is what they have said,” said Kindle-Betz, president of the Enterprise Holdings Foundation. MLS Commissioner Don Garber […]
TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. – Medical marijuana is coming to Missouri but CBD oil is already here. What’s the difference between the two? And why is CBD oil getting so popular? The CBD oil business is expected to be a $22 billion business in the United States by 2021. There is no doubt CBD oil is a hot commodity. It’s a wellness product being used to treat people’s pain and anxiety but it’s not psychoactive. That’s the big difference between […]
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. – A police pursuit in the Metro East ended on Route 3 near the Poplar Street Bridge. Two suspects were taken into custody and one of them had been shot by police.

ST. LOUIS – Twenty-five MoDOT vehicles have already been hit in 2019 in the St. Louis-area. That includes the truck-mounted attenuators (TMAs) that protect workers from oncoming traffic, plows, and salt trucks. Every time one of the TMA trucks is hit, it costs between $25,000 and $30,000 to fix it. “From the police reports, a majority of them are from distracted driving. Not paying attention,” said Bob Becker, a MoDOT spokesman. Becker said some of the accidents are because of […]
ST. LOUIS – These St. Louis City properties are vacant, distressed, and in need of serious repair and remodeling. But if someone is interested in buying the residence and fixing it up, the city will sell the home for just a dollar. “It’s a good program. It gives people the opportunity to really invest back in the city,” said John Parker, St. Louis Development Corporation. Parker says Alderman John Collins-Muhammad put forth a bill to move property in the city […]
CREVE COEUR, Mo. – Nobody was answering the doors of the management offices Monday morning at the Laser Spine Institute. In fact, the Creve Coeur facility was empty. Their St. Louis website is still active. Customer Mike Fielder expressed frustration over the lack of response. “I tried calling and they come on and they say thanks for calling and give their spiel and the next thing you know phone goes dead,” he said. Fielder said his wife had back surgery […]
ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – It’s not what most people would do on a Friday morning – taking time out of the day to pay respects to a man you didn’t even know. But hundreds of strangers became an impromptu family of sorts on a cold morning to get into Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery to honor a 50-year-old veteran who died without a family. Sergeant Robert Kenneth Wunderlich was buried at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery at 10 a.m. with no family […]

Deonte Taylor was previously charged with sodomizing a then-7-year-old boy at Hazelwood Elementary School in November 2015. Between February 7 and February 26 this […]
