Motorists are reporting some confusing signs around one of the approaches to the new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge.

 

For the morning rush hour, drivers from the Illinois side on Interstate 70 noticed a closed sign over the exit for the bridge, even though the Stan Span is officially open. Some GPS units are not recognizing the bridge yet--although it appears Google Maps has updated to include the bridge.

 

Transportation officials are still optimistic and say the bridge will reduce traffic on the Poplar Street each morning by about 20 percent.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri education officials are digging into proposals to help struggling school districts.

Three Missouri districts, including Kansas City, are currently unaccredited, and a 2013 law gave the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education more power to intervene in struggling school systems.

More than a half-dozen improvement plans have been submitted by school districts, education organizations and the Cities for Education Entrepreneurship Trust, a private school reform group under contract with the state.

The State Board of Education scheduled a work session on the proposals Monday. The education department plans to present its recommendations to the board on Feb. 18.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - More Missouri students could get personal help with filing out college applications this fall.

The Coordinating Board for Higher Education has announced an expansion of "College Application Week."

More than 2,000 students filled out applications during the inaugural event last October at 26 high schools in St. Louis, Kansas City and parts of rural Missouri. The board says it hopes to double the number of participating high schools this fall.

The program is available to all high school seniors, but the goal is to increase the number of applications from students in low-income families and those who would be the first in their families to attend college.

Members of the Missouri College Advising Corps provide one-on-one help to students when filling out applications.

   CHICAGO (AP) - Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk and Democratic congressman Danny Davis say they want an end to federal government price protections for sugar farmers.
   The Farm Bill that passed this month leaves intact the government's depression-era program, which supports prices and protects growers from foreign competition.
   Candy makers and other food and beverage companies long have said the protections artificially restrict supplies, force consumers to pay more and only benefit a few thousand well-off growers.
   The two Illinois lawmakers are held a news conference Sunday to highlight their efforts. They were joined Sunday by Bill Kelley, vice chairman of Jelly Belly.
   They say 130,000 U.S. jobs have been lost to overseas competitors over the past 15 years because of the sugar program.
