Shrewsbury police say a suspicious event in a part this month was just an innocent mistake.

Police issued a warning on Tuesday after a couple came forward saying a woman tried to walk away with their young boy in the park. The mother said a woman approached her two-year-old son, grabbed his hand, and started to walk away. The mother believed her son was being abducted. The mother grabbed her boy and the woman walked away.

It turns out the woman works at a concession stand and was just trying to help the boy find his parents. Police say there was no ill intent and are calling the situation a misunderstanding.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The State Board of Education is increasing its oversight of Missouri's unaccredited schools and hiring a consultant to help develop an improvement plan.

The board's action comes in advance of an Aug. 28 effective date for a new law allowing the state to more quickly intervene in unaccredited schools. Three districts currently lack accreditation - Kansas City and the suburban St. Louis systems of Normandy and Riverview Gardens.

State Education Commissioner Chris Nicastro says state personnel will increase classroom visits and interaction with local education officials.

The board also approved a contract with The Cities for Education Entrepreneurship Trust to analyze the reasons for failure in the Kansas City School District and make recommendations to improve it. The suggestions also could be used for other schools.

 

Express Scripts will add over 1,000 jobs to the St. Louis area over the next five years.

Governor Jay Nixon made the announcement today. He says the medication management giant is expanding its campus and will create around 1,500 new jobs. Express Scripts managed over 1.4 billion prescriptions last year.

The expansion is being paid for with nearly $7 million in bonds.
