Embarq Missouri, Inc. has filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking competitive classification for all of its business services (other than exchange access services) in its Buckner, Odessa, Oak Grove, Pleasant Hill and Salem exchanges. Embarq also seeks competitive classification for all of its residential services (other than exchange access services) in its Salem exchange. If competitive status is granted, Embarq would no longer be subject to price or rate regulation by the PSC in those exchanges listed above. Embarq would be permitted to raise or lower telephone rates at its own discretion, subject to the marketplace. The Office of the Public Counsel is a separate state agency that represents the general public in matters before the commission. Those wishing to comment should contact either the Office of the Public Counsel (Governor Office Building, 200 Madison Street, Suite 650, P.O. Box 2230, Jefferson City, MO 65102-2230, telephone (866) 922-2959, or the Public Service Commission staff (P.O. Box 360, Jefferson City, MO 65102, telephone 1-800-392-4211. The PSC staff, the Office of the Public Counsel and any other interested party is to file any objections or recommendations regarding Embarq’s request by June 13, 2008. In this case, state law requires the commission to issue its decision within 30 days of Embarq’s June 3
rd filing.  Under the law, the 30-day criteria for determining competitive classification is based upon the existence of two other nonaffiliated entities providing basic local telecommunications service, one of which may be a wireless provider, the other a wire line company providing local voice service using facilities in which it has a partial or full ownership interest. If any party opposes Embarq’s application, a hearing will be held on June in Jefferson City.

Brendan Ryan's two-run single highlighted a five-run seventh inning, as the St. Louis Cardinals downed the Houston Astros, 5-4, in the rubber match of a three-game series at Minute Maid Park. Brian Barton, Troy Glaus and Yadier Molina each had a hit for the Cardinals, who were held to four in the game. St. Louis has won two straight and four of its last six overall. St. Louis starter Kyle Lohse (7-2) gave up three runs on five hits in six innings of work to collect the win. Ryan Franklin struck out the side in the ninth to notch his eighth save of the season.
