Vice News Tonight interview with Andrew Yang

Rock Island Trail Gets Option To Raise Money, But No State Funds

A bill before Gov. Mike Parson would set up a fund to accept donations and grants to develop the 144-mile former Rock Island rail line as a recreational trail.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources would manage the fund, but there will be no state money committed to the project.

Greg Harris, executive director of the Missouri Rock Island Trail, Inc. advocacy group, said even without state dollars, the fund is important.

“It sends a message to everyone that this is what the state wants,” Harris said.

Circus Flora's 33rd Season Takes Audience Members On Flying Adventure Inside Schnucks Grocery Store

Circus Flora is a longstanding tradition for many St. Louisans and is back in action this month for its 33rd season. This year’s show is bringing audiences to an unlikely place for an adventure – a grocery store. Schnucks, to be exact.

On Thursday’s St. Louis on the Air, St. Louis Public Radio’s Jeremy D. Goodwin talked about how “The Caper in Aisle 6” takes a usually mundane trip to the store and turns it into an exciting visual performance for circusgoers.

Joining him for the discussion were Jack Marsh, Circus Flora’s artistic director, and Alex Wallenda of the Flying Wallendas high-wire act.


As Floodwaters Remain High, Many In St. Louis Wonder If They'll Reach Flood Of '93 Levels

Andrea Mcmanus and her three children had lived in their apartment in Grafton for less than six months before they evacuated to escape the rising Mississippi River floodwaters.

They left on March 22, as the flood overtook Grafton and began rising downstream in St. Louis. The Mississippi has been above flood stage at St. Louis for more than 80 days and last weekend surpassed the 1973 level, the second highest on record.

Many residents, government officials and scientists compare it to the Great Flood of 1993, when the river crested at 49.6 feet, the highest flood on record for the St. Louis region. Some residents worry that it could surpass that height.

“You live on the river, you know you can wait it out,” Mcmanus said. “But this year, they say, I’m sure it’ll probably get worse than ‘93.”
