Sunday, 07 July 2013 07:58 Published in Local News

BRIDGETON, Mo. (AP) — A 79-year-old driver has died after crashing into a pedestrian at a St. Louis-area bus stop.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Elizabeth Baylark of St. Louis suffered a "medical condition" Friday before losing control of her car. The vehicle then went off the right side of the road and struck a 21-year-old woman at a bus stop bench.

Baylark was pronounced dead at a Bridgeton hospital. The pedestrian sustained moderate injuries and was taken to a Creve Coeur hospital.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri's education system will be the focus of a newly formed state House committee that will consider ways to improve outcomes and better prepare students for college and adulthood.

The House Interim Committee on Education has scheduled its first meeting for next Thursday at the state Capitol. The panel will examine education issues during the summer and fall before lawmakers return in January for their next legislative session. Republican House member Steve Cookson of Poplar Bluff will lead the interim committee.

House Speaker Tim Jones created the new education committee. He says he wants the committee to develop bipartisan solutions that "deemphasize the education bureaucracy" and focus on providing children the best education possible.

30 killed in school attack in Nigeria

Saturday, 06 July 2013 07:45 Published in National News

POTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) — Islamic extremists have killed 29 students and one teacher in an attack on a boarding school in northeast Nigeria.

Survivors being treated for burn and gunshots wounds say some students were burned alive in the attack before dawn Saturday on Government Secondary School in Mamudo town in Yobe state.

As he wept over the bodies of his two boys, farmer Malam Abdullahi swore he would withdraw three remaining sons from a nearby school.

He complained there was no protection for students despite the deployment of thousands of troops since the government declared a state of emergency mid-May in three northeastern states.

Dozens of schools have been torched and unknown scores of students killed among more than 1,600 victims slain by extremists since 2010.
