   Parents in the Normandy School District plan to hold a town hall meeting Monday to discuss the financial and academic problems in the struggling district.  

   Last week the school board voted to cut more than 100 jobs, including 70 teachers and close Bel Nor Elementary School in an effort to keep from going bankrupt over of the costs of the state-mandated transfer program. The unaccredited district must pay for more than 1,000 students to attend schools in other districts.  

   But the School board voted last week not to pay the tuition and transportation bills associated with those transfers. 

   The Normandy Schools Town Hall Organization will host a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Natural Bridge Branch of the St. Louis County Library.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Before Governor Jay Nixon halted a planned October execution, his office received numerous messages raising concerns about plans to use the common anesthetic propofol to administer the death penalty.

Nixon also directed state prison officials to develop a new death penalty protocol. The Department of Corrections announced this past week that Missouri now will use the sedative pentobarbital in executions.

The possible use of propofol for an execution had fueled concerns that the anti-death penalty European Union could limit its export.

ANNA, Ill. (AP) — Officials at a southern Illinois food pantry say they're in dire need of help to keep their shelves stocked.

The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reported Saturday that the Shawnee Development Food Pantry in the Union County town of Anna suspended operations for two weeks earlier this month because there was no food to give away.

Officials say that's the first time in 20 years that the pantry has had to close its doors.

A truckload of food arrived a few days ago, and should last until the end of the week. But officials say they'll have to close again if no more food arrives.

They say the pantry typically serves about 200 households monthly, but that number has climbed as high as 335 households as more young families seek help.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Supporters of a Missouri girl who says she was raped as a 14-year-old by an older schoolmate who wasn't prosecuted are applauding the selection of a Kansas City attorney who is tasked with re-examining the case.

Daisy Coleman's backers and lawyers who have worked with Jackson County prosecuting attorney Jean Peters Baker say her experience handling high-profile cases and as a victims advocate make her a good choice for special prosecutor in Daisy's case.

Baker says her review of the case will be fair and thorough. The Nodaway County prosecutor determined that there wasn't sufficient evidence to justify charges.

Daisy says an older boy got her drunk and sexually assaulted her in January 2012. He says the sex was consensual.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A man accused of carjacking a vehicle at a suburban St. Louis hospital, then robbing a credit union, is now facing charges.

Charges of first-degree robbery, armed criminal action and resisting arrest were filed Friday against 34-year-old Robert Gusman of St. Louis County. He is jailed on $100,000 bond.

Authorities say Gusman carjacked a Cadillac at St. Anthony Medical Center on Thursday, then drove to Arsenal Credit Union and robbed the facility. He was later arrested on Interstate 55 after a chase.

Gusman's mother reported him missing on Wednesday, saying she had not seen or heard from him since October 17th.

PARK HILLS, Mo. (AP) - Two eastern Missouri firefighters are facing charges for a string of arsons in the Park Hills area.

The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills, Mo., reports that the firefighters, both from Park Hills, are jailed on $200,000 bail each. Their names have not been released pending formal charges.

The break in the case came when the two men were questioned by police in nearby Leadington and by state conservation agents for the alleged illegal shooting of a deer. Leadington Police Chief Rick Pouge says that during questioning, the men admitted to setting several fires over the past several months.

Park Hills Fire Chief Jackie Wagganer says his department is cooperating with investigators. The department is made up most of volunteer firefighters.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A new report says Gov. Jay Nixon's administration displayed an "indifference to the privacy rights" of Missourians through its driver's license policies.

The report released Friday comes after a group of legislators, law enforcement officers and other House appointees spent the summer looking into state driver's license procedures that have already been largely abandoned.

The panel said Nixon's administration disregarded state law by making digital copies of birth certificates and other documents submitted by driver's license applicants and by buying equipment to analyze biometric information about people.

Nixon signed a law in July that put a halt to those practices. His administration has consistently denied that the procedures were intended to implement the federal Real ID proof-of-identity law. A 2009 Missouri law bars state officials from implementing Real ID.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A former suburban St. Louis police officer faces sentencing Dec. 20 after being convicted of corruption for telling a female motorist she could either have sex with him or face a drunk-driving arrest.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 50-year-old Timothy H. Jones of Troy, Mo., was found guilty Friday in St. Louis County Circuit Court. Prosecutors are seeking a four-year prison sentence.

Jones was an officer in Country Club Hills. Court documents show that he pulled over a 24-year-old woman on suspicion of drunken driving on Interstate 70 in 2010.

After a field-sobriety test, he allegedly told her she could either be arrested or have sex with him. Court documents say he drove her in his patrol car to her home, where they had sex.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Serving Illinois prisoners two meals a day instead of three was supposed to save the state money.

But Corrections Department officials told lawmakers this week it will cost $200,000 per prison to implement the "brunch" program.

Corrections spokesman Tom Shaer now says the main goal is to reduce inmate movement - a cost savings - and avoid serving breakfast in dark morning hours.

Prisons in Robinson and Galesburg have begun the program and the Mount Sterling lockup will follow soon. Shaer says the rest of the two dozen state prisons could follow after Jan. 1.

Prison director S.A. "Tony" Godinez said in early 2012 it would save $2 million in the following year. Shaer says there might be savings down the line but security is the top concern.
