Vikings, Rams Look To Keep Slim Playoff Hopes Alive

Two teams looking to stay in the playoff hunt square off Sunday as the Minnesota Vikings lock horns with the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. The Vikings beat the Bears 21-14 at home this past Sunday to improve to 7-and-6. They are tied with Washington and Dallas, one game out of the final playoff spot in the NFC. The Rams are just a half-game further back at 6-6-and-1. St. Louis notched its third straight win this past Sunday, rallying for a 15-12 victory over the Bills at Buffalo.

Football fans should plan ahead and pay close attention to traffic routing and parking around the Edward Jones Dome as Broadway in front of the Dome and the broadway exits off Eastbound I-70 will be closed to traffic during the Rams game Sunday. The street closure adds another level of security and ensures optimal fan experience.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
