The nephew of a Missouri man who killed five people at a suburban St. Louis city council meeting is running for a seat on that same governing body. 
   Jayson Thornton tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he doesn't want Kirkwood to be known only for the Feb. 7, 2008, massacre in which his uncle, Charles "Cookie" Thornton stormed into the council chamber and started shooting.
   Five people were killed and one more was seriously wounded before police fatally shot Cookie Thornton, who was mad about race relations in the Meacham Park neighborhood where Jayson Thornton now lives with his wife and children.
   The 30 year old is scheduled to appear at a forum in Kirkwood Monday night alongside candidates Timothy E. Griffin, Bob Sears, Paul Ward and Gary Reim.
