Half-Hour Hurricanes: Where were the Warnings About St. Louis's Ultra Storm?

As clips of hurricane-strength winds uprooting trees across St. Louis in late July made national news, many commentators spoke of the awesome power of nature. But this storm was not an act of god.

Local radio DJ advocates hitting bikes with vehicles

During morning rush hour 6/2, a DJ for Bernie Miklasz Show on local "sports" station, AM 1380, said the proper place for bicycles is underneath cars. This comes barely 1year after local radio DJs suspended for prompting listeners to forceably disarm cops. Unclear whether the DJ advocating violence against bicyclists could receive similar treatment. For context, 12% of all roadway injuries in Missouri are on bike.
Update: Bernie issues apology for guest, and legal threat.

Metro Holds Public Hearing in East St. Louis on Fare Increases

The Metro conducted its East St. Louis public hearing on a proposed fare increase for the MetroLink, MetroBus, and Call-A-Ride. Todd Plesko, Chief of Planning and System Development, began the meeting explaining Metro’s analysis and laying out the fare increase schedule for all attendants.

Diesel costs, normal inflation, and budget balance were laid to blame for the proposed fare increases. Mr. Plesko explained that other measures were taken before fare increases were considered. Following his explanation, he invited those in attendance to speak up one by one, standing in the front of the room, with their concerns and comments.

STLIMC Dot Org is Back!

The website is back!

As our most dedicated readers are aware, the St. Louis Indy Media Center website has been down for some time. The server is finally in its new home in Seattle, which was our biggest hurdle to get over. A new site design is established and a new IMC application is installed, both of which should make things easier to navigate and to publish.

Email imc-stlouis (at) if you have any questions about the site or suggestions.
