Environmentalists sue MO over renewable energy

Monday, 26 August 2013 00:42 Published in Local News

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - An environmental group is heading to court in another attempt to overturn the way Missouri officials have implemented a 2008 ballot initiative about renewable energy.

   The initiative requires investor-owned utilities to tap renewable energy sources for at least 5 percent of their electricity by 2014, with that amount gradually rising to 15 percent by 2021.

   In 2011, the Legislature blocked part of an administrative rule that would have required the electricity from renewable energy sources to be produced or sold in Missouri. The result is that utilities have been able to purchase credits for renewable energy produced by others.

   A lawsuit filed this past week on behalf of the Missouri Coalition for the Environment challenges the legal basis for the Legislature's action.

 

Blanchette Bridge reopens ahead of schedule

Monday, 26 August 2013 00:35 Published in Local News

   There's good news for I-70 drivers.  The Blanchette Bridge is back to five lanes in each direction.  

   MoDOT reports that crews finished work well ahead of this morning's deadline, opening all lanes on both spans Saturday.  

   Transportation officials say drivers should expect occasional lane closures middays and overnight as crews finish work on the underside of the bridge structure.  

   The bulk of the work on the $64 million project has been completed two months ahead of schedule.

 

   Mehlville middle and high school students will have a ride home from after-school activities, even if they've transferred in from the unaccredited Riverview Gardens School District.  

   The Mehlville School board approved a plan (5-2) Thursday to use district buses to haul students to north county after late activities.   The $76,000 needed will come from tuition received from the unaccredited district.  

   Mehlville Superintendent Eric Knost says he expects at least 15 of the 215 transfer students will need the late ride each day.

   Riverview Gardens is responsible for general transportation costs, but it doesn't have to cover after-school activity runs.
