   Monday is the first day of school for public school students in the city of St. Louis.  And 20 district officials spent their Sunday morning in church, delivering a message to families, it's critical for children to attend school when classes begin.  

   Superintendent Dr. Kelvin Adams delivered his message to congregants at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in north St. Louis.

   "The data shows the students who are in school on the first day have a dramatic difference in terms of achievement and attendance," Adams said.

   Adams also told church-goers that the state isn't doing enough to help the unaccredited Riverview Gardens and Normandy school districts, which he predicts will go bankrupt by January.  

   This is the first time in five years that the St. Louis Public Schools have begun the school year as an accredited district.

 

Kinder: Right to work likely to go to MO ballot

Friday, 09 August 2013 03:17 Published in Local News

   CHICAGO (AP) - Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder is predicting that voters will get a chance to decide whether to make Missouri the 25th state to enact a right-to-work law.

   Kinder said while attending a Chicago conference of the American Legislative Exchange Council that he believes fellow Republicans in the Legislature will refer the measure to the ballot next year.

   The measure would prohibit union membership or fees from being a condition of employment in Missouri.

   Kinder's comments came during a session highlighting how the historically unionized state of Michigan enacted a right-to-work law last December.

   The American Legislative Exchange Council is an association of legislators, businesses and nonprofit groups that advocates for free-market policies. It has been sharply criticized by unions and others for its close ties between big businesses and lawmakers.

 

Call for bids on next generation of locomotives

Friday, 09 August 2013 03:13 Published in Local News

   CHICAGO (AP) - A group of states forging ahead with plans for high-speed passenger rail have put out a call for bids for the production of 35 next-generation locomotives.

   The request for proposals released Thursday calls for lighter, cleaner-burning locomotives that can reach speeds of up to 125 miles per hour.

   Illinois is leading the procurement. The other states taking part are California, Michigan, Missouri and Washington.

   The Federal Railroad Administration has allocated $808 million for the new locomotives and for the construction of 130 bi-level passenger cars.

   Those cars will be built at a new plant in Rochelle, Ill., by the American subsidiary of Nippon Sharyo, the company that built Japan's bullet train.

   Illinois is working on 110-mph service on routes from Chicago to Detroit and Chicago to St. Louis.
