JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has named a former St. Louis-area school official to the State Board of Education.

Nixon announced the appointment of Vic Lenz Friday. Lenz, a Republican, is the former board president for the Lindbergh School District and immediate past present of the Missouri School Boards Association. He was assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction in the district from 1988 to 2003. He also worked as a teacher, counselor, administrator and principal from 1966 to 1988.

Lenz's term runs through June 2019 and must be confirmed by the state Senate.

Lenz replaces Sybl Slaugter, whose term has expired.

 

Alton, Illinois police are reminding residents, do not bring concealed weapons to this weekend's Block Party.

Despite the Madison County State's Attorney issuing new guidelines on conceal carry this week, the police will arrest anyone found with a concealed weapon. State's Attorney Tom Gibbons agreed with this weekend's prohibition. New rules from Gibbons stated that people in Madison County can have a loaded gun in their car or person if they have a firearm owner's ID card.

But, that is not the case for this weekend's event.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - University of Missouri curators are planning their search for a new chancellor for the Columbia campus to succeed the retiring Brady Deaton.

The governing board met behind closed doors Friday morning, two days after Deaton announced he will retire in November after nearly a decade as chancellor.

He will be executive director of a new research center bearing the name of the chancellor and his wife: the Brady and Ann Deaton Institute for University Leadership in International Development.

The 70-year-old Deaton is a former Peace Corps volunteer and agricultural economist who leads a presidential panel on global development.

University system president Tim Wolfe and curators' chairman Wayne Goode planned to discuss the search for Deaton's replacement later Friday.
