Winter claims holiday casualty in Edwardsville

   EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Students in the southwestern Illinois town of Edwardsville can blame the snow and cold for the loss of a pair of planned days off.
   The Belleville News-Democrat reports that the school board voted Monday to call off the March 3 Casimir Pulaski Day holiday. A teachers-only work day on March 21 was also called off.
   Students in the district have already had 10 days off this winter due to snow and cold.
   Superintendent Ed Hightower said a full spring break is still planned April 14-18 and school is still scheduled to end as planned on May 28. But he warned that winter isn't over.
   Pulaski Day honors the Polish-born nobleman who trained American cavalry during the Revolutionary War and gave his life for the war effort.
