St. Louis, Mo. – The movie "The Game of their Lives" has wrapped in St. Louis. Cast and crew spent more than a month in the city shooting scenes for the film, which tells the story of the 1950 US World Cup soccer team.
Several team members were from St. Louis, including Frank Borghi. He and the others helped serve as consultants to the actors portraying them.
"I think it's been great. They've really done a lot for St. Louis and the Hill area, which I'm a part of. I really enjoyed it, it's been a thrill for me," Borghi said.

Washington, D.C. – House Majority Whip Roy Blunt confirmed today he has early stage prostate cancer. And the Missouri Congressman says he'll have his prostate removed next month.

St. Louis, MO – A state appeals court in St. Louis yesterday said police may get a search warrant for a blood sample if a drunken-driving suspect refuses a breath test.
The ruling preserves how authorities handle DWI cases statewide. At issue was whether drunken-driving suspects could avoid giving blood or urine samples by first refusing a Breathalyzer test. Current state law says no test shall be given to a DWI suspect if he or she refuses.
But the judges said that applies only to police who seek other tests without a warrant.
