Besides the Pope coming to D.C. and hundreds of Catholics (including those in the STL) making a trek to see him, the big story in the STL is, Do you know where the Boony hat Bandit at? Well, The St. Louis Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation increased its reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a bank robber known as the "Boonie Hat Bandit." John V. Gillies, Special Agent in Charge, said Tuesday that investigators believe the "Boonie Hat Bandit" to be responsible for seven bank robberies in St. Louis and St. Charles County since November 2007.Authorities said a $5,000 reward has been issued for information on the suspect. Now is it me, or I got a feelin folk are gonna start purchasing Boony Hats cuz of this? Or T shirts saying, I found the Bandit, Gimme my 5 grand. LOL

Police has a St. Louis man is in custody after allegedly shooting letter carrier Terry Marcrum(PICTURED) , a 44-year-old letter carrier, who was shot in the shoulder and back of the head while delivering mail just before 2 p.m. Monday. . at an apartment in the 3400 block of Giles Avenue, about one block east of where Marcrum was attacked at Potomac Street and Spring Avenue. Police said a gun had been recovered. They also do not suspect that the incident was gang related.
\Mail carrier is shot on his route; friends, police are asking why He was in uniform but delivering mail in his own car at the time of the shooting in the South Grand neighborhood. Mail carrier Terry Marcrum speculated Tuesday that he was shot in cold blood for some kind of gang initiation, but city police who announced an arrest hours later said it was not. Marcus speculates that he knew the grandmother of the alleged gumen beause of her residence is part of his postal route.
hospital upgraded his condition Tuesday to fair, from critical. Now the thing that OUTTOWN cant understand was, why was Marcum deluivering mail in his own car? Strange indeed .......................
A spokesperson for the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District said a fight broke out between two female middle school students April 3. The Maplewood Police Department said the school resource officer was forced to use a stun gun on one of the students because she was combative. While the mother of the teen makes no excuses for the fight, she questions the tactics used by the school resource officer. The police department said he did not break any rules, but a school resource officer who used a stun gun on a 13-year-old student has come under fire. Her daughter was taken to the hospital and was released after the hospital determined she was not injured. The district has asked the officer to not come back. Both of the students have been suspended. The officer has been reassigned at the Maplewood Police Department.

Scientists used a vacant lot near a grade school in East St. Louis to test a new method of addressing lead-contaminated soil — by mixing it with waste sludge that could render the lead chemically harmless. But no one told local residents that some experts believe the sludge itself could be dangerous.An investigation by The Associated Press raises new questions this week about the 2001 East St. Louis project, and a similar one in Baltimore. In both cases, scientists using federal money spread sludge made from wastewater solids and other materials on lots in poor neighborhoods to test whether it might protect children from lead poisoning in the soil.


Local preacher and activist Rev. Cleo Willis laid in front of a Metrolink bus Friday to protest high gas prices and bus fares and a shortage of
construction jobs for African-Americans in the city. Willis was accompanied by a number of sign-carrying protestors, who stood nearby while he lay down beneath the bus.Police arrived on the scene and arrested Willis shortly after the incident began.
Prior to the protest, willis said, "I am going to be walking toward an oncoming bus tomorrow afternoon, and it's going to stop me, or I am going to stop it. For yawl who keep up with Willis' outlandish protests, in 2003 he and a group of activists were arrested after stepping on the tracks in front of a crowded MetroLink train after a Cardinals game. In 1999, Willis was part of a large protest in which participants stood on Interstate 70 and stopped traffic. Each of those protests focused on the alleged lack of construction and contracting jobs awarded to black residents in the St. Louis area..

The President Casino in downtown St. Louis is reopen after Mississippi River floodwaters receded.
President Casino officials say the river rose to the point that operations had to be temporarily suspended on Saturday, but said clean-up was minor. The casino reopened Tuesday.
The casino is housed inside a boat on the river, just north of the Gateway Arch. It is owned by Las Vegas-based Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. The temporary shut down was the first flooding closure for the President Casino in about six years.

IRStensions. Hope ya'll filed your taxes or at least got that extension. If you lived in the County (the city, so sorry) yawl got an extention until May 19 if you sent in your materials and put on the front of the envelope
" Missouri Flood Victim."

Ted Foster and Sons White House funeral home on Halls Ferry Rd. was foreclosed but failed to notify family members and friends arriving for scheduled services. Bodies were removed and the business had been foreclosed early on Friday.
No one was present at the funeral home to redirect mourners to the new location. Many people had rushed to be on time only to find out the services were at another chapel.

Congrats go out to two STL mover and shakers will be featured in the May issue of Ebony Magazine. They Business mogul David L. Steward (upper right) and U.S. Congressman William Lacy Clay.

Here is what the article stated:

April 12, 2008. Here's a report - sent in by one of's faithful readers:

I attended "Saint Louis" from flavor of love, Million Dollar Man party that occured at a popular night club in St. Louis. First off the b*tch gets on the microphone saying "Yah hoe's thought I couldn't do it but look at me now" vs saying, thank you for attending my event. She also had a special guest who was "Gravee" and she was looking a mess as well! But anyway the contest was suppose to be for her to find her "Million Dollar Man", in St. Louis. As soon as the contest got started the first contestant to hit the stage was weird looking guy. A gentleman on the stage asked the guy to step down from the stage which started the madness! As the other contestants were walking across the stage, the weird guy that was kicked off the stage was still upset and going off. So that's when "Saint Louis", got smacked at her own party by the guy and that's when the fight occurred. After the fight was over, the contest was shut down and everybody was told to leave. She is soooooooo ghetto and how do you get smacked at your own party? Further more you got kicked off the second show and ugly ass Flav didn't even remember your name.......................So Sad!

Little Rock Nine’s Thelma Mothershed Wair, 67, spoke to a group of St. Clair County teachers at Belleville West High School Friday morning. Fifty years ago, Thelma Mothershed Wair and eight other students integrated Little Rock High School, forever becoming known as 'The Little Rock Nine.' For nearly 30 years, Thelma Mothershed Wair taught in the East St. Louis public schools. She spoke to St. Clair County teachers about the experience that made her a part of national history. Wair, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, has since retired from teaching and returned to Little Rock, adding that her hometown has changed. Teachers gathered at Belleville West High School for a series of workshops and to celebrate Wairs' achievements as an educator and a trailblazer.
Wair was honored at a luncheon after the workshops, hosted by educators in East St. Louis School District 189........................................Why did Laughs on the Landing on Laclede’s landing change names to House of Comedy? Same management different name.

Several STL stars were seen last week I at various spots. Newcomer rapper Ludy was spotted with his girlfriend at Flamingo Bowl last Saturday. They were hugged up when they left there. Boxer Cory Spinks was enjoying the cruise on Olive and 170 in his BMW. Don’t know where he was goin’, but we’re sure he was NOT going to Knockouts Bar and Grill. A couple of socialites were working out at Bally Total Fitness in Clayton--Valarie Johnson and FREE TIME’s Adrian Saddler. She, who was incognegro with a cap over her head, was givin him a workout on legs.

A strange occurrence happened last weekend when three hip-hop vans were spotted , two in the E Side area

Rapper Cane’s van that was promoting his single, “Get Dirty Wit it,” It was parked at the Phillips 66 in Shiloh Illinois near midnite on Monday morning.

Ludy’s van going up Delmar toward the Loop area. His van was promoting his mixtape, “The Takeover

Rapper P Dub’s van traveling down I-64 toward Fairview Heights and kept going east. The van was promoting his new CD, “The Turning Point.” And the single, “Good Thang.” I guess he’s back doin secular music after doing a couple of CDs on the gospel tip.

The question is where all these vans were going?

Speaking of STL rappers, one in particular is doing his thing on the gospel tip. MYNISTA a.k.a. Docta Wuzdead (who used to be known only as "Synista") he has a testimony to rap on with life on the streets and his turning his life around.

What was up with a homeless man walking naked in teh Delmar loop last weekend?

STL got hoaxed. This week, OUTTOWN got word of two hoaxes that got started on two STL stars. One was that STL rapper Dutch Jackson got killed in a car wreck. Well come to find out, according to a source, he and his manager faked his death to kill off his rap name so he can start over. Whats up with that?Well, if you wanna kill off your career, faking your death is mos def not the way to do it. Wouldnt that enhance it? We're just sayin. The other came via email on So Diverse's email of its co-founder Jameelah E. gettin stranded in Lagos, Nigeria and her requesting money (Hmmm, sounds smelly already) The following is what was emailed to OUTTOWN and hundreds of others:

I Hope this message meets you in best of health, Pardon my mistakes because I am in a hurry writing this, I had travelled to Nigeria for official purposes, Unfortunately for me all my money was stolen at the hotel where I lodged, I am so confused right now, I do not know what to do or where to go,I did not bring my phone here, I have access to only emails, please can you send me $4000 today so I can return home, as soon as I get home I would refund it immediately.
