JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri teachers union says it is spending at least $100,000 on commercials urging state lawmakers to uphold the governor's veto of an income tax cut.

The Missouri chapter of the National Education Association says the TV and radio spots began running Tuesday and will continue for a week. The ads assert the tax cut would benefit "corporate special interests" while "stealing money from our schools."

Lawmakers are to convene Sept. 11 to decide whether to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto.

Supporters of the legislation have been running their own ads for weeks. They have been financed largely by nearly $2.4 million in contributions from retired investment firm executive Rex Sinquefield.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Laclede Gas Co. says it has finalized a $975 million deal to buy Missouri Gas Energy.

Laclede announced Tuesday that the purchase has been completed. The deal combines Missouri's two largest natural gas companies under one entity that will serve more than 1.1 million customers across the state.

St. Louis-based Laclede had served about 630,000 customers in St. Louis and 10 eastern Missouri counties. Missouri Gas Energy had served about 500,000 customers in about 30 western and central Missouri counties, including the Kansas City, St. Joseph and Joplin areas.

Laclede had announced the deal last December. State utility regulators approved it in July.

It was a deadly holiday weekend on Missouri roadways.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says seven people died over Labor Day weekend, including two in St. Louis. Two deaths in the metro area were motorcyclists in town for the Ride of the Century, including Michael Evans. Evans was attempting to pass a car stopped at a light when he clipped the side-view mirror and ran into a pole.

Troopers investigated 248 crashes that resulted in the deaths and 112 injuries. A bright spot, the number of drunk-driving arrests was down from last year--119 this year, 147 in 2012.

Students in East St. Louis School District 189 are finally back in school.

The first day of classes were pushed back after construction projects finished behind schedule. The high school has seen major renovations that should improve the education experience for some 1,300 students. Construction work on the school's roof and floor were not finished in time for the original August 21 start.

Work of another kind will continue in the classrooms--the latest test results show that vast majority of schools in the district did not meet reading or math requirements.

The St. Louis Zoo is welcoming some new, slithery residents.

Nine ocellate mountain vipers were born at the zoo August 16th. The vipers were thought to be extinct until they were rediscovered in Turkey in 1983. The St. Louis Zoo is only one of three zoos around the country that care for the viper.

The zoo is working with several organizations to ensure the survival of the highly endangered species.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is raising concerns about legislation attempting to nullify some federal gun-control laws.

Koster sent a letter Tuesday to lawmakers warning that the bill contains "flawed public policy."

The Republican-led Legislature is to meet Sept. 11 to consider overriding Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of the legislation.

Koster, a Democrat, says a federal judge likely would strike down provisions attempting to nullify some federal gun laws and making it a crime for federal agents to enforce them. But Koster says other parts of the measure that could be upheld are troubling.

He says the bill could restrict local police from working cooperatively with federal agents and could allow criminals to sue police who refer gun violations to federal prosecutors.

St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish is now considering an affiliation with the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri. The St. Louis Polish parish broke away from the Roman Catholic Church nearly a decade ago during a dispute over who controlled the parish's finances. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Bishop George Wayne Smith has sent a letter to Episcopal clergy about the proposal. The negotiations come seven months after the Archdiocese of St. Louis dropped its appeal of a judge's ruling that handed over control of St. Stanislaus to its own lay board. The Archdiocese had removed the parish in 2005 when it was at odds over a 19th century agreement that allowed St. Stanislaus to govern its own finances.

In keeping with the spirit of the program, the Missouri State Penitentiary will be the focus of a travel show which features ghosts. The Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventurers" will spotlight the former Missouri prison in an episode this week. The film crew re-enacted the 1954 prison riot and a double-execution conducted at the prison. The program will also focus on the gas chamber and the housing unit that held death row. The Missouri State Penitentiary closed in 2004 and was the oldest continually operating prison west of the Mississippi River. It is located near the state Capitol and overlooks the Missouri River.
