Where to See It: Total Lunar Eclipse Coming Tax Day Eve
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 13, 2014 - The first total eclipse of the moon since December 2011 will be visible in North America, just in time to greet last-minute tax filers in the United States.

The total lunar eclipse, resulting from the Earth's position between the moon and sun, will occur early Tuesday morning at 12:53 a.m. EDT Tuesday. It will reach totality at 3:06 a.m. EDT and end at 4:24 a.m. EDT.

"A front will stretch from central Quebec down through the Appalachians into the Gulf Coast," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said. "It will bring clouds, showers and even thunder in the South and mid-Atlantic. It will be mostly dry but clouds will be streaming into New England."

High pressure systems over the Canadian Prairies, Texas and Oklahoma will be in control bringing clear skies and good viewing conditions to the central U.S. and parts of the Southwest, Edwards said.

However, many Americans may not be in a good place to see the eclipse because of cloudy and rainy conditions.

"A storm off the Pacific Northwest coast will bring clouds and showers to western Washington and Oregon," he said.

In addition to the eclipse, Mars will be on a close approach to the Earth, about 57 million miles away.


AG Obtains Restraining Order on Auction House
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 13, 2014 - Attorney General Chris Koster has obtained a temporary restraining order from the St. Louis County Circuit Court, prohibiting Ivey-Selkirk Auctions and Appraisals from conducting further business and disposing of items and documents while an investigation and civil lawsuit move ahead.

Koster is investigating Ivey-Selkirk for failure to pay consumers for consigned items sold at auction. Today's restraining order is related to a civil petition filed on April 3 accusing the company of unfair business practices and making false promises in violation of Missouri's Merchandising Practices Act.

Malcolm Ivey operates Ivey-Selkirk Auctions and Appraisals on Forsythe Boulevard in Clayton. Koster's lawsuit said that, over the last several months, approximately forty consumers have complained to his office that they did not receive payment for items the company auctioned on their behalf. Others complained of payment checks returned for insufficient funds. Consumers have reported that calls to the company are unreturned and doors are locked during business hours.

On April 1, the Attorney General's Office worked in cooperation with Clayton Police Department and St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch to execute a search warrant of the offices of Ivey-Selkirk, in furtherance of the investigation.

"We are examining very closely the circumstances that apparently led this company to cease doing business, leaving consumers without payment," said Koster. "Our priority is to protect consumers who never received the money they were owed."

Koster's civil petition asks the St. Louis County Circuit Court to permanently prohibit Malcolm Ivey from offering auction services in Missouri, to provide consumers their money or their items back, to pay civil penalties, and to reimburse the state for the cost of the investigation.

Koster encourages Ivey-Selkirk consumers who did not receive payment for items the company auctioned to file a complaint with his office's Consumer Protection Division by calling 800-392-8222 or online. Anyone with information on Ivey-Selkirk should contact the Attorney General's Office at 800-392-8222.
