Grant's Farm Turns 60

Friday, 11 April 2014 06:52 Published in Local News
AFFTON, Mo. (AP) - One of the St. Louis area's most popular attractions is celebrating a milestone.
 
Grant's Farm opens for its 60th season on Saturday. The sprawling facility in south St. Louis County is operated by Anheuser-Busch and is home to some of the Budweiser Clydesdales. It features wild animals, tram rides, baby goat feeding and other activities and draws about a half-million visitors each year.
 
New for this year will be paddle boat rides on Mirror Lake and a parakeet feeding experience. Grant's Farm also plans to offer "surprises" on 60 days. All will be promoted on the attraction's Facebook page starting May 5.
 
There is no fee to tour Grant's Farm. Parking is $12 per car and $30 for buses, RVs and oversized vehicles.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A task force would be charged with trying to bring the Super Bowl to Kansas City under a resolution passed by the Missouri Senate.
 
The Senate voted unanimously Thursday to send the measure to the House. If adopted there, the state Department of Economic Development would be asked to form a group to "examine what measures need to be taken" for Kansas City to host the game.
 
Resolution sponsor Sen. Paul LeVota, of Independence, says Arrowhead Stadium's $350 million renovation in 2010 would help make it an attractive venue.
 
The most recent Super Bowl was played in an outdoor stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The 2015 game will be played in Phoenix.
 
 
 

Tax Cuts Debated In Missouri Legislature

Friday, 11 April 2014 06:33 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's Republican lawmakers are advancing a pair of tax cut proposals for potential debate in the coming weeks.
 
A House committee on Thursday endorsed legislation already passed by the Senate that would cut income tax rates for individuals and some business owners. That proposal is projected by legislative researchers to reduce state revenues by $620 million annually when fully phased in.
 
Also Thursday, a Senate committee changed and endorsed a tax cut bill that previously passed the House. As revised, that plan would cut income taxes only for businesses, not individuals. Its cost is estimated at about half the amount as the other bill.
 
Committee approval of the bills means they could soon be considered by the full House and Senate.
