The Doe Run Company’s Buick Mine and Mill, part of the company’s Southeast Missouri Mining and Milling Division (SEMO), has earned the highly coveted Sentinels of Safety award for its outstanding safety performance in the Large Underground Metal Mine category. The award honors the facility as the safest large underground metal mine in the country for 2007. Co-sponsored by the National Mining Association (NMA) and Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), the Sentinels of Safety awards were developed in part by President Herbert Hoover more than 75 years ago and are recognized as one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious occupational safety awards. The Doe Run Company and its predecessor companies have now won the national Sentinels of Safety award 24 times since 1971.

Rich Harden continued his brilliance for the Cubs, throwing six effective innings to give Chicago a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in the rubber match of a three-game set at Busch Stadium.

The righty gave up two runs -- none earned -- and only three hits in five innings while walking four and striking out two to take the loss. Albert Pujols scored a run and drove in another while Felipe Lopez drove in the other run for St. Louis, which has lost two straight. The Cards and Pittsburgh will play this weekend.
