ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court's decision to move ahead with two executions this year is being questioned by some death penalty observers and opponents.

The state High Court on Wednesday set execution dates for condemned killers Allen Nicklasson and Joseph Franklin.

Missouri plans to become the first-ever state to use the anesthetic propofol for lethal injection. Propofol was used in the death of pop star Michael Jackson.

States are scrambling because makers of drugs previously used in executions now prohibit their use.

Executions have been on hold in Missouri since the court declined last August to set dates for six inmates.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster applauded the court's decision. But Death Penalty Information Center executive director Richard Dieter says using propofol will essentially be "an experiment with a human subject."

It is National Check the Chip Day. That's not chocolate chips or potato chips. It's microchips!

Those little silicon chips implanted in pets greatly increase the chance of finding your furry friend if it's lost or stolen. But a microchip only works if it's registration information is accurate.

Call in the Humane Society of Missouri and their Animal Medical Center of Mid-America. They are offering free chip checks for you pet and a discount on having a chip inserted. Microchips usually cost $42 but through Saturday, you pay only $25.

The Humane Society asks that you make an appointment for that, but if you just want a check of an existing chip they offer free walk-in visits.  For more information call 314-951-1534.

As first In a letter leaked to KTRS News, St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch is telling County Executive Charlie Dooley to back off his investigation into the contract award process.

In today's letter, Fitch accuses county COO Gatry Earles of requesting information from the police that had been shared with the FBI. Fitch says this request for confidential information is "at the very least unethical and unprofessional". Fitch ends the letter by asking Dooley to instruct his staff to not have contact with employees regarding this matter.

The issue came to light after the Post-Dispatch revealed that one of Dooley's political appointees, Gregory Sansone, created a company that won the lucrative contract shortly after his appointment. Chief Fitch contacted the FBI to investigate the matter. Dooley was frustrated that Fitch involved the FBI in the matter before giving his office a chance to investigate.
