St. Louis pops conductor Richard Hayman dies

Thursday, 06 February 2014 04:22 Published in Local News
   ST. LOUIS (AP) - Richard Hayman, longtime pops conductor for the St. Louis Symphony and other symphonies around North America, has died.
   The St. Louis Symphony says Hayman died Wednesday. He was 93 and had been recently placed in hospice care in New York, but a cause of death was not released.
   Hayman became the symphony's principal pops conductor in 1976. He held similar posts in Detroit, Hartford, Conn., and in Calgary and London in Canada.
   Hayman was chief arranger for the Boston Pops Orchestra for more than 30 years, under both Arthur Fiedler and John Williams. He also worked in Hollywood, orchestrating and arranging for films such as "Girl Crazy," `'Meet Me in St. Louis," and others.
   Funeral arrangements are not complete.
 

GOP led MO Senate kills Medicaid expansion

Thursday, 06 February 2014 04:18 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Senate has defeated an attempt to expand Medicaid eligibility to several hundred thousand lower-income adults.
   The 23-9 vote Wednesday followed party lines, with majority Republicans voting against the expansion and minority party Democrats supporting it.
   The vote marked the first official rejection of Medicaid expansion this year since Democratic Governor Jay Nixon renewed his call for it during his State of the State address. Republicans repeatedly rejected similar proposals last year.
   About half of the states have expanded Medicaid under the terms of President Barack Obama's health care law. States that do so can receive enhanced federal payments.
   But Missouri's Republican lawmakers continue to express concerns about the potential long-term costs.
 

Recent snow could cause longer MO school year

Thursday, 06 February 2014 04:10 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's education department says the latest in a series of winter storms could cause school districts to extend classes into the summer.
   Department of Elementary and Secondary Education spokeswoman Sarah Potter says public schools have already had more snow days than usual in the current academic year.
   Many districts have had to call off classes the past two months because of snow, ice and cold temperatures. Potter says schools might need to cut short spring and summer vacations.
   The department requires school districts to build six snow days into their calendars and those days must be made up in full. Subsequent snow days only count for a half day that must be made up during the academic year.
