Six MO state park beaches closed as summer begins

   As the weather heats up with the start of summer tomorrow, many Missouri residents will head to their state park beaches.  But the Department of Natural Resources says a half-dozen of those beaches are closed.  

   Five state park swimming beaches were closed after tests this week showed high levels of bacteria.  A sixth beach - at Mark Twain State Park - remains closed because of flooding.  

   DNR officials say the beach at Harry S. Truman State Park and the Grand Glaize beach at the Lake of the Ozarks are among those that are off limits due to bacteria.  Other beaches closed include the Pittsburg beach at Pomme de Terre, St. Joe's State Park in Park Hills and Wakonda in northeastern Missouri.
