   There are a lot of problems with Missouri's school transfer law, but no easy solutions.  That's what state lawmakers heard from St. Louis area school administrators and state educators during five hours of hearings Tuesday.  

   The legislators are considering changes to the current law that allows students in unaccredited districts to transfer to better schools at the expense of their home district.  Issues of cost were a repeated theme yesterday.  

   Three districts in the state are currently unaccredited: Normandy, Riverview Gardens and Kansas City.  But with 11 other districts only having provisional accreditation and new state education standards, there is concern that the transfer situation could be much more widespread in the next few years.

   Firefighters in the Monarch Fire Protection District can wear their "Pink Heals" tee shirts during Breast Cancer Awareness Month after all. 

   After hearing from an angry crowd at Tuesday night's board meeting, the district board rescinded their earlier ban, but with conditions.  The shirts must be redesigned without a union logo and must clearly identify firefighters as Monarch employees. 

   One of the board members who had banned the shirts, Robin Harris, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the fire chief has been directed to submit design changes by Wednesday.

IL AG Warns: Watch for Health Insurance Scams

   As the health insurance exchanges get rolling, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is warning insurance shoppers about potential scams.  

   Madigan says scam artists may try to take advantage of the new program.

   Some may try to obtain personal and financial information to steal someone's identity. Others may try to sell fake health insurance plans.  Madigan says consumers should never have to pay anyone to help them enroll in a health plan.
