St. Louis – St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says he's less than optimistic about the immediate future of American Airlines in St. Louis.
The Mayor and Missouri Governor Bob Holden traveled to American's headquarters in Dallas Friday to meet with American CEO Gerard Arpey. Slay says the airline chief was not specific on plans for the St. Louis hub.

Hermann, MO – A new tractor and refrigerator might not seem the loftiest of goals for the Missouri couple who won half the $261 million Powerball jackpot. But Hermann residents William and Claudia Walkenbach say their new status as multi millionaires hasn't sunk in yet.
The east-central Missouri couple can take the money either as 30 annual installments of around $4 million, or a lump-sum payment of about $74 million dollars.
The couple bought the ticket Wednesday at the Hermann Fuel Mart. The other winner lives in Pennsylvania.
