   Normandy School District officials will meet with parents Tuesday to answer their questions after announcing that the unaccredited district will pay to bus students to schools in the Francis Howell District in St. Charles beginning this fall.  

   The announcement comes on the heels of a Supreme Court ruling allowing students attending unaccredited districts to transfer to high performing schools.  

   All Normandy students in grades K-12 can participate in the transfer program at the district's expense.  Parents can begin the transfer process July 9th at Normandy School District headquarters.  

  Tuesday's meeting with parents begins at 3 p.m. at the Normandy District offices.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has vetoed a pair of bills that he says would have imposed new mandates on governments to solve problems that don't exist.

   One of the bills vetoed Monday would have banned public entities from restricting celebrations or discussions of federal holidays. Though it could have protected religious-oriented holidays such as Christmas, Nixon said it also could have hampered efforts to enforce fireworks ordinances around Independence Day.

   The other vetoed bill would have forbidden governments from enacting policies traceable to Agenda 21 -a nonbinding resolution adopted in 1992 by the United Nations that encouraged sustainable development.

   The Democratic governor said both bills passed by the Republican-led Legislature attempt to fight imaginary problems but could have caused real headaches for officials in local communities.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster wants the state Supreme Court to set execution dates for two inmates before the state's supply of an execution drug expires.

Koster has renewed a request for execution dates to be set for Allen Nicklasson and Joseph Franklin. The state's highest court refused to do so last August, citing a legal challenge to the state's newly planned use of the drug propofol as its execution method.

The attorney general's office said Monday that the Department of Corrections has a limited supply of propofol and much of it will expire next spring.

Nicklasson was convicted for the 1994 killing of a businessman traveling on Interstate 70 in Callaway County.

Franklin was convicted of killing a man outside a suburban St. Louis synagogue in 1977.
