Cost of Energy Rising

Whether you're paying at the pump, or paying a check in the mail, you've probably noticed there's no rest for the energy weary. The cost of gas is way up, and the cost of energy seems to be following. Today the price at the pump is $3.19 a gallon, and the energy crisis could get worse- Ameren UE customers could soon pay more. The Missouri Public Service Commission is expected to grant a rate increase to the St. Louis-based utility today. With the approval, Ameren's revenue would rise by about $45 million annually. That's a 3.4% rate increase for a residential customer.

Attorney General's Troubles Continue

Five Republican senators have joined Democrats, calling for the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. President Bush is still standing by Gonzales, saying he's done nothing wrong. However, lawmakers in Bush's party want Gonzales to go because of the way he handled the firings of eight federal prosecutors. Gonzales' former White House liaison, Monica Goodling, is set to testify today about the firings before a White House panel. A no-confidence vote is expected later this week.

Falwell Funeral

Reverend Jerry Falwell will be laid to rest today on the campus of the school he founded, Liberty University. Falwell died a week ago at the age of 73. Thousands of people attended four days of public viewing that ended yesterday, and thousands more are expected for the funeral at Thomas Road Baptist Church. Falwell founded the church more than 50 years ago. It started with 35 members but now has 24,000.

Flood Damage Assessments

State teams will begin assessing flood damage to Missouri public buildings and infrastructure in 32 counties today. More than 600 homes and businesses across Missouri suffered recent flood damage. Today teams will figure out how much damage was done to railroads, bridges and the public infrastructure. That information will be used to help Missouri's requests for federal disaster relief.

MU Baseball on the Move

Mizzou's men's baseball team is having a season to remember. Head Coach, Tim Jamieson will likely be named Big 12 Conference Coach of the Year today, but he says the focus should be on his players

"Guys that pull for each other, pick each other up, find ways to help each other win baseball games. And that's what we've done all year, it's not just one guy," said Jamieson.

The Tigers are getting ready to square off in the Big 12 tournament tomorrow as the 2-seed against Oklahoma. 'Baseball America' ranks Missouri 11th this week, the Tigers highest ranking of the season. All this good news is just a prelude to the best news: Mizzou could earn a number one seed and host a regional when the NCAA Tournament field is announced next week.
