Barnes and Noble to close Florissant location

Friday, 24 January 2014 16:44 Published in Local News

It’s the last chapter for a Florissant book store.

 

The Post Dispatch reporting that Barnes and Noble is closing its Florissant location in Cross Keys Center. Some customers have been told the store will close at the end of February. Barnes and Noble plans to close between 15 and 20 stores a year for the next decade.

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - One local television station's undercover report on school safety, is the inspiration for a new piece of legislation.

 

Missouri State Representative Stacey Newman wrote on her blog, that she has filed House Bill 1522. The bill would make it a felony to "intentionally make a threat to the security of a public school or building” in order to expose security issues. Newman says the bill could stop situations like the one when a KSDK employee took a hidden camera in five schools, including Kirkwood High School.

 

The employee was not stopped at Kirkwood and the school was forced to go into lockdown when officials could not find the employee or verify that they were at the school as part of a story.

 

KSDK has apologized for the incident and the Kirkwood Superintendent accepted the apology.

Supreme Court: Damaged school suit comes too late

Friday, 24 January 2014 13:47 Published in Local News
BENLD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois Supreme Court says a southern Illinois school district can't sue an architectural firm for building a school over an underground coal mine that later collapsed, causing the school to be torn down.
 
   In a unanimous decision, justices ruled Friday that Gillespie Community School District's "fraudulent representation" claims against Wight & Company came after a statute of limitations passed.
 
   The elementary school in Benld (ben-ELD') was built in 2002. It closed in 2009 after being damaged and declared unsafe because of mine subsidence, which occurs when land moves or sinks because of a collapsed underground mine.
 
   Justices say the district's 2010 suit was filed too late. That upholds decisions by lower courts.
   A reconstructed elementary school opened this fall.
 
   Benld is about 40 miles northeast of St. Louis.
