NPR and the Center for Public Integrity are making public for the first time a watch list of the chronic violators of air pollution rules. The list was created in 2004 to help Washington crack down on long-term violators that states and regional EPA offices had failed to bring into compliance with the Clean Air Act. NPR and CPI are the first media outlets to obtain and publish the list, as NPR's Elizabeth Shogren reported today on Morning Edition.

The St. Louis Blues have fired head coach Davis Payne, and hired Ken Hitchcock to take his place.
Payne earned a 67-55-15 record with the Blues, but missed the playoffs in both 2010 and 2011. He was the coach of the team's minor league affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen, before being named the interim head coach of the Blues on January 2, 2010. The team removed the interim title on April 4, 2010.
It’s scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Central Standard Time on Wednesday, November 9th, and will be broadcast over every radio station, TV station and cable network across the country. Mike O’Connell with the Missouri Department of Public Safety says state officials are helping spread the word, so that residents don’t mistake the test for a real emergency.
