U.S. House approves compromise bridge name

Wednesday, 26 June 2013 02:50 Published in Local News

   Local political leaders are it calling an impressive display of bipartisan support and compromise.  The U.S. House on Tuesday voted to name the new Interstate-70 bridge over the Mississippi River as the "Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge."  

   Missouri lawmakers had wanted to name the span after the Cardinal's legend.  Illinois lawmakers had wanted to name the bridge to honor veterans.  Tuesday's 395-to-2 House vote would do both.  

   The measure now moves on the U.S. Senate.

Peabody Opera House/Scottrade Center job fair

Wednesday, 26 June 2013 02:33 Published in Around Town

   Two downtown St. Louis venues are getting together to fill a number of part-time positions.  

   Peabody Opera House and Scottrade Center are holding a joint job fair Wednesday, June 26, from 3-7 p.m. at Scottrade Center.  Job seekers can enter through the main atrium entrance at 14th and Clark.  

   Both venues have openings in  guest services and security.  The jobs are for the upcoming event season at Peabody Opera House and 2013-2014 Blues hockey season at Scottrade.  

   A second job fair will be held Wednesday, July 10th.  

  More information can be found on the Peabody Opera House website

 

   School board members won't be able to hire family members for supervisory positions in the Fox School District if they adopt a proposed anti-nepotism policy at tonight's board meeting.  

   The Jefferson County district has been struggling with the issue since the district hired Kelly Nash as food services director late last year.  Nash is a former McDonald's assistant manager with a high school diploma and no advanced certifications.  She's the daughter-in-law of Linda Nash, who was president of the school board at the time.

   The policy to be voted on tonight would prohibit board members from hiring relatives to supervisor positions, such as principals, assistant principals and department directors.
