Re: “Another mass shooting: Nine reported dead in Missouri

this is the second tragedy where the proximity to St.Louis is worked into the story, it is equally close to Kansas city and nearly an hour closer to Springfield.

Re: “Riverfest in contract dispute with headliner CeeLo Green over length of show

When it was time for Cee Lo's show to start, a pair of performers who called themselves part of the Cee Lo Experience came out and did nearly 20 minutes sans Cee Lo, then a DJ was wheeled out on a platform and she did at least 20 minutes.....THEN Cee Lo came out and did a short show - he will claim the Cee Lo Experience combined to do the required time.

Re: “Arrest made in Forest Place apartment fire

It's not unusual for the ATF to be involved and to bring charges in Arson cases involving use of explosives - there is precedent for their involvement and other examples recently this story explains
"In 1978, ATF developed the NRT to bring its expertise to federal, state and local investigators in meeting the challenges faced at the scenes of significant explosives and arson incidents. The NRT consists of four teams organized geographically to cover the United States. Each team can respond within 24 hours to assist state and local law enforcement/fire service personnel in onsite investigations."…

Re: “Saturday's Jimmy Buffett concert cancelled

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR. (DECEMBER 6, 2013) Verizon Arena regrets to announce that tomorrow night's
Jimmy Buffett concert, Saturday December 7th, has been cancelled due to severe winter weather conditions,
including freezing rain, sleet and snow.
The National Weather Service has issued an ice storm warning for Pulaski County and the surrounding
counties, prompting officials to cancel this weekend's concert.
Michael Marion, General Manager of Verizon Arena, said "I've spoken personally to the Arkansas Highway
Department, our local meteorologists and have read all of the reports and the conditions for this weekend are
simply prohibitive for us to host Jimmy Buffett tomorrow night. We regret we have had to cancel the concert, but
our patrons safety is always first and foremost."
Refunds are available at point of purchase. Tickets purchased by phone or online through Ticketmaster will be
automatically refunded.

Re: “The unbearable plainness of Panera

in 1987, the year I graduated from college in St.Louis, one of the first St.Louis Bread company locations opened on Delmar in University City in an area St.Louis natives know as the loop and I was immediately a fan. It was similar to what is now nationally franchised by the corporation that purchased the successful St.Louis based company and rebranded it for the wider market as Panera, but was very unchain like. It used fresh baked bread, fresh sliced meat and cheese and heathy ingredients for those who wanted a healthy alternative to greasy fried meat. I can't say the franchised version of this wonderful little sandwich/bakery I walked into 26 years ago matches up to the original but I still think it's better than many of the alternatives, but There has never been a corporate built franchise of popular privately owned restaurant that does (if you are familiar with St.Louis, think Casa Gallardo) here's a blurb from wikipedia about the purchaser of Panera

"Panera considers its legacy to have begun in 1981 with the original Au Bon Pain Co., co-founded by current Panera CEO Ron Shaich. In 1993, Au Bon Pain Co. purchased the St. Louis Bread Company, which was founded by Ken Rosenthal in 1987. At the same time, the St. Louis Bread Company was renovating its 20 bakery-cafés in the St. Louis area.[6]"
