Today is primary day in the City of St. Louis. It's also the day we'll learn who will be the next mayor.

That's because the winner of today's Democratic Primary will face only Green Party Candidate James McNeeley in the general election April 2nd. And city voters haven't elected a non-Democrat to the post since Republican Aloys Kauffman won a second term back in 1945.

The Democratic incumbent, Mayor Francis Slay is running for a record fourth term. His chief Democratic rival is Aldermanic President Lewis Reed.

Both candidates spent Monday night campaigning and going over their "get out the vote" efforts -- preparations that could prove critical, with an election day weather forecast that calls for rain and snow.

The polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Expect to pay more to park at Lambert Airport beginning next month. That's the word from the St. Louis Airport Commission which is expected to vote this week to increase the rate to park.

Parking at the airport's two primary garages would go from $2.50 per hour, up to $5 for the first two hours, or any fraction of that time. Under the proposed new rate structure, it would cost $5 to park for 30 minutes, and $10 to park for three hours. The same amount of time under current rates would cost $2.50 and $7.50 respectively.

Rates will also likely go up at three other airport facilities. The increases are expected to generate an additional $1.5 million in revenue.

Airport officials say they're also hoping to free up some space in the two busiest parking facilities by encouraging those picking up arriving passengers to use the cellphone lots instead of terminal parking.

The interim dean of St. Louis University's law school is resigning. Attorney Tom Keefe says he made "politically incorrect" statements that were inappropriate for a person in his position.

Keefe has held the temporary academic post since August. He had volunteered to take the position without pay.

Keefe is also being accused of sexual harassment. He denies that charge, but says he has made some inappropriate comments and may have been misinterpreted.

Keefe says he isn't being pressured to step down.

The university hasn't released a statement on Keefe's resignation.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's revenues are up nearly 9 percent through the first two-thirds of the state's fiscal year.

Figures released Monday by the state Office of Administration show Missouri's finances have improved mainly because of a decline in tax refunds and an increase in individual income tax collections.

Through February, net general revenues were up 8.7 percent compared with the same period a year earlier. The total includes a 5.5 percent increase in individual income taxes and a 16.5 percent decline in tax refunds. Sales tax collections have remained relatively flat for the fiscal year.

Missouri's 2013 budget year began last July and runs through the end of this June.

Tax collections in February alone were virtually unchanged from February 2012. But for the entire fiscal year, collections were up $394 million.

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn says the state budget he'll present this week will be "hard and difficult" because of Illinois' massive pension debt.

The Democrat told reporters Monday he has to lay out the facts for the lawmakers to see the strain Illinois' nearly $100 billion in unfunded liability is going to affect other areas. He says that includes education.

Quinn gives his budget address Wednesday.

His administration has already projected a cut of about $400 million to education. Quinn says the agreement reached with the state's largest union last week is a good step forward.

After 15 months at the bargaining table, Quinn's administration and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees reached an agreement where workers will pay more of their health costs.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Constitution already enshrines the right to bear arms, but a state senator wants to expand that protection.

The Senate General Laws Committee scheduled a vote Monday on the proposal by Republican Sen. Kurt Schaefer, of Columbia.

The proposed constitutional amendment would define the right to bear arms as "inalienable" and require the state to defend against any "infringement" of that right.

Schaefer filed his measure shortly after President Barack Obama outlined his plans for stricter federal gun control laws.

If passed by both the House and Senate, the constitutional amendment would need to be approved by Missouri voters.

UPDATE:
Learjet landed safely at Lambert Airport just after 1:30 PM. No visible damage to plane. Emergency crews on scene to examine plane. EARLIER:
Lambert Airport is preparing for the emergency landing of a Learjet that is reporting disabled landing gear.

The plane had been circling Parks Airport in Cahokia. The pilot of the plane alerted the tower of a problem just after 12 o'clock, and the tower in turn notified the fire department. An employee of Parks Airport, and she confirms 8 passengers are on board the plane, which she believes was heading for St. Louis.

Apparently the jet is experiencing problems with the landing gear...the nose gear to be more specific...its having problems extending the nose gear underneath the front of the Learjet.

In situations like these, the airport will handle these emergencies on a case-by-case basis.
