Riverview Gardens will bus to Mehlville

Tuesday, 09 July 2013 23:50 Published in Local News

   Many parents in the unaccredited Riverview Gardens school district are unhappy after district officials announced they'll bus students to the Mehlville School District in order to comply with a Missouri Supreme Court ruling.  The South County district is about 30 miles from the failing one in North County.  

   Parents aren't the only one's expressing concerns.  Mehlville's superintendent says his district lacks the space for transferring students.  Eric Knost says his district welcomes the transferring students, but warns that Mehville's classrooms are already at capacity.  

   Riverview officials say they're working to re-earn accreditation quickly and hope that parents will keep their kids enrolled there.

IL Lawmakers poised to override Quinn's gun bill

Tuesday, 09 July 2013 02:38 Published in Local News

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Lawmakers are set to meet in Springfield to consider a bill allowing the concealed carry of weapons in public on the day of a court-mandated deadline to pass such legislation.

   Gov. Pat Quinn has asked for sweeping changes to a concealed carry bill, but lawmakers have been less than enthusiastic, so far, and are expected to override his changes.

   Quinn wants an ammunition limit and to prohibit guns in any place that serves alcohol, among other provisions. He has backed his changes by focusing on violence in Chicago.

   But several lawmakers say Quinn proposed changes come too late in the process.

   Illinois is the only state without a law to allowed concealed carry. A federal appeals court ruled the state's ban unconstitutional and set a Tuesday deadline to allow it.

   

 

Something new flying at Lambert...bees

Monday, 08 July 2013 02:12 Published in Local News

   Lambert Airport will soon have some new tenants...bees.  

   The St. Louis Airport Authority has approved a three-year lease with Robins Apiaries to keep bee hives on a 400 square foot patch of land near a seldom-used runway. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the airport will collect $75 a year in rent from 76 year old beekeeper Jim Robins.  

   A plentiful supply of white dutch clover blooming near billion dollar W-1-W project runway drew Robins to the site.  The runway opened in 2006, but hasn't seen much traffic since TWA filed for bankruptcy and American Airlines yanked hub status away from Lambert.

   Lambert will be the third major US airport to host bee hives.  Chicago's O'Hare International and Seattle-Tacoma International both have significant bee operations.
