It appears the St. Louis Community College system will be seeking a new Chancellor.  

The St. Louis Post Dispatch is reporting that the board of trustees has voted in closed session not to renew Myrtle Dorsey's contract. Her tenure runs out in June of 2014.

Dorsey has come under criticism for the handling of an attack on a female student in a restroom on the Meramec campus and the followup  handling of the suspect. The fallout forced George Wasson, then president of the Meramec campus, to resign.

Renovations start at Illinois governor's mansion

Wednesday, 31 July 2013 12:17 Published in Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Renovations are underway at the Illinois governor's mansion, even though the 158-year-old home hasn't been used much during the past two administrations.

Lee Enterprises newspapers' Springfield bureau reports the state's awarded almost $339,000 for three contracts on work to the 16-room Georgian-styled home.

Contractors are spending the summer replacing climate-control systems and an emergency generator at the Springfield manor.

The home hasn't undergone a major renovation since 1971.

The property's been mostly unoccupied for the past two administrators. Ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his family continued to live in Chicago and Gov. Pat Quinn said he'd live in the property, but the newspaper says he spends most nights in Chicago.

The work is paid for by liquor taxes, license plate fees and video gaming proceeds.
