In other back-to-school news, starting Friday families have a chance to load up on school supplies and can avoid paying sales tax.

Missouri's annual Sales Tax Holiday runs through Sunday. In most area communities, consumers will not have to pay any sales tax on everything from pencils to computers. There are restrictions on what is exempt from tax and some communities that are not waving local taxes.
