North Dakota - AP - A school superintendent in North Dakota will resign after he says he took a gun to school to protect himself.

Tioga Superintendent D'Wayne Johnston said in an interview Wednesday that he brought the weapon to the high school on Oct. 2 because of a threat from a boy that resulted in the student's expulsion. Johnston says he should have instead asked for more help from police.

Johnston refused to go into detail about the threat but says the boy had previous discipline problems.

After several people saw the gun, Johnston acknowledged carrying it.

The school board accepted Johnston's resignation at an emergency meeting Friday. The resignation takes effect at the end of the school year.

District officials don't think the incident will result in any criminal charges against Johnston.

St. Louis City Water and Street crews are being credited for their fast work after a water main break in downtown.

The pipe burst in the early afternoon. Water crews were forced to dig out a large hole in the middle of Clark Street in front of the police headquarters. Work was initially planned to carry into the night, causing traffic problems as fans head downtown for the Cardinals and Blues games.

Instead, crews repaired the main and placed steel plates over the hole so they could reopen the road. Work to fill in the hole will happen at a later time.

Death row inmate asks for stay of execution

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 16:24 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - An attorney for condemned killer Allen Nicklasson is asking the Missouri Supreme Court for a stay of execution, citing concerns about Missouri's planned use of the anesthetic propofol for the first time as a lethal injection drug.

Attorney Jennifer Herndon filed the motion on Wednesday. It wasn't clear when the court would issue a ruling.

The Missouri Department of Corrections has expressed confidence in propofol as an execution drug, but Herndon raised concerns that it could cause Nicklasson to suffer.

Nicklasson was convicted of the 1994 killing of Excelsior Springs businessman Richard Drummond, who stopped to help when a car used by Nicklasson and two others broke down on Interstate 70. Another man in the car, Dennis Skillicorn, was executed in 2009.
