*A cold front moving through today brings chilly temps back to the region for the rest of the week. Look for highs in the 30s and through the weekend

*We told you about a new possible ice irena in Creve Coeur for the Blues and other local hockey teams. Well it's drawing opposition from people who say it will ruin the park.  St. Louis County Planning officials listened to a packed house of speakers during a hearing in Clayton last night. Opponents say they're not against hockey, they just wish the facility would go somewhere else besides a park.Katherine Dockey of the Open Space Council says the project will be, "Larger than the size of a super Walmart."


*Venus and Serena Williams will square off in Saturday's Australian Open final, making it the ninth time the sisters will meet in a Grand Slam final, and first time since Wimbledon in 2009.They each won their semi-final match yesterday in Melbourne. Serena comes into the match as the number-two seed, while Venus is a 36-seed. Serena is trying to win her record 23rd Grand Slam title and Venus is trying for her eighth.


*In his first network TV interview since becoming president, Donald Trump fielded questions from ABC's David Muir on such topics as immigration, his planned border wall, voter fraud and torture.During the hour-long special, Trump mostly stuck to issues he hammered home during his campaign. He continued to say that he would construct a border wall, but now he admitted that Mexico won't pay for it -- at least initially. He said U.S. taxpayers will finance the wall, but he promised that "we will be in a form reimbursed by Mexico."......As for his unproven claims about voter fraud, Trump said that an investigation will be launched because "if you look at voter registration, you look at the dead people that are registered to vote who vote, you look at people that are registered in two states, you look at all of these different things that are happening with registration."......In other parts of the interview, Trump said torture "absolutely" works, claimed the media tried "to demean me unfairly" with its inauguration coverage and all the networks aside from Fox News covered his CIA speech "very inaccurately."
