Chara all action, little talk in Stanley Cup pursuit

Chara all action, little talk in Stanley Cup pursuit BOSTON (AP) Zdeno Chara didn't say much to his teammates when he showed up, as usual, one game after a puck bloodied his face and knocked him out of the Stanley Cup Final. And it wasn't just because it was difficult for him to talk. ''He doesn't need to say anything, really,'' forward Charlie Coyle said on Tuesday, a day before Game 7 of the NHL championship. ''It's already known.'' Nine days after Chara left Game 5 with blood dripping from his face, and three days after Boston won in St. Louis to force the series to the limit, the Bruins and Blues will bring the confetti down on another hockey season Wednesday night.

Albert Pujols received plenty of love from Cardinals fans in his return to Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Pujols on Friday played at Busch Stadium for the first time since leaving the Cardinals to sign with the Angels in free agency after the 2011 season. Prior to the start of the game, the Cardinals played him a tribute, and a lengthy standing ovation ensued.

Here is the tribute video:

And here’s a look at the ovation:

The love for Pujols was continual. He also received a standing ovation as he headed onto the field for warmups prior to the game too.

Then the ovation was the loudest when he came to the plate in the top of the first inning. Catcher Yadier Molina, his former teammate, even gave him a big hug.

Pujols flied out, but the feeling in the park was special.

The love from the Cardinals fans was well-deserved. Pujols spent 11 seasons with the Cardinals, winning three NL MVP Awards and two World Series. During his time with St. Louis, he established himself as the best player in the league and got off to one of the most impressive starts to a career in MLB history.

East St. Louis police officer accused of lying about overtime hours

East St. Louis police officer accused of lying about overtime hours EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – A federal grand jury indicted an East St. Louis police officer Tuesday for allegedly taking more than $130,000 in fraudulent overtime pay, US Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois Steven Weinhoeft said. According to court documents, Mario Fennoy is accused of submitting more than 50 false requests for overtime pay—totaling more than 200 hours—between April 2017 and March 2018. Prosecutors said Fennoy spent extended periods of time at his second home when he was supposed to be at work on patrol. He allegedly cleared calls and reported that he was responding to dispatches when, in fact, he never left the residence.

Some Cardinals fans were upset that Pujols chose to leave St. Louis in free agency, but the stats show it all worked out well for the franchise. He gave the Cardinals his best seasons and never came close to replicating that success with the Angels. He was a career .328 hitter with the Cardinals and has batted .258 with the Angels. His OPS has gone from 1.037 to .767 as well.

Ferguson hires new full-time police chief.
FERGUSON, Mo. – The city of Ferguson has once again looked outside the St. Louis area to find a new police chief. On Tuesday, the city announced it had hired Jason Armstrong to lead the department. Armstrong, who comes from the Atlanta suburb of Forest Park, Georgia, will take over for former chief Delrish Moss. Moss left the Ferguson Police Department after more than two years to return to south Florida for family reasons. Some residents were concerned the department went outside the region to make the hire, worried that someone without ties to the area might also pick up and leave.
