ST. LOUIS (AP) - The debate over legalization of marijuana will be the subject of an open forum in St. Louis later this month.
 
Three members of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen are hosting the forum the evening of March 24 at Harris-Stowe State University. The panel discussion will address the disproportionate number of marijuana arrests for African-Americans, the safety of the drug, and whether a marijuana tax would benefit government revenues.
 
Organizers say panelists will include people on both sides of the debate, including representatives from law enforcement and from a pro-marijuana organization.

VANDALIA, Ill. (AP) - Illinois Conservation Police is investigating the illegal killing last week of more than 30 ducks at the Carlyle Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area near Vandalia.
 
The ducks killed includes several northern pintails and mallards. Several ducks were left crippled. Duck hunting season closed Jan. 7 in the South Central Zone which includes Carlyle Lake.
 
Aerial surveys conducted in May indicated pintails numbered 3.3 million on the breeding grounds in the north-central United States and Canada. Waterfowl biologists and habitat managers have worked hard to keep pintail numbers at levels high enough to sustain harvest.
 
Spring duck hunting was eliminated a century ago by the McLean-Weeks Act, which regulated the shooting of migratory birds in the United states. The act was replaced in 1918 by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri drivers would not have points assessed against their license for tickets issued by automated traffic cameras under legislation endorsed by the state House.
 
The House gave initial approval to the bill Wednesday that would regulate red-light and speeding cameras.
 
Photo traffic enforcement systems for Missouri municipalities have been the subject of ongoing court cases and many cities have temporary halted enforcement. The measure would require cities to meet certain standards in order to operate speeding or red-light cameras.
 
Supporters say the measure would streamline traffic enforcement across different municipalities and give guidance to the courts. Opponents say it circumvents the point system and could keep dangerous drivers on the road.
 
The bill needs one more affirmative vote before moving to the Senate.

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - The incoming president at Southern Illinois University will have the pay $250,000 if he leaves his new post within three and a half years.
 
That's according to a report by The Carbondale Southern Illinoisan.
 
The newspaper says there's a clause in Randy Dunn's four-year contract that requires him to reimburse the school.
 
Dunn is president of Youngstown State University in Ohio, but announced he was leaving the job after seven months.
 
SIU Board of Trustees Chairman Randal Thomas says the money covers the cost of another presidential search.
 
SIU's board last month hired Dunn to succeed Glenn Poshard, who has said he plans to step down from SIU's helm at the end of June.
 
Dunn has said he expects to begin work July 1.

BALLWIN, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County woman facing criminal charges for injuring her sons by lighting fireworks inside an SUV has been found dead.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 44-year-old Kara Koriath was found Tuesday morning with a single, fatal, gunshot wound. Investigators found after-death instructions inside Koriath's home, along with a will, suicide letters and a recently-purchased life insurance policy.
 
Police say Koriath intentionally lit strategically-placed fireworks while driving along Interstate 270 in November, causing the SUV to catch fire and crash. Her sons, ages 13 and 16, suffered burns and smoke inhalation.
 
Authorities suspect her motive was to seek revenge on her married lover, who was expected to be driving along the same route. She was free on $200,000 bond.

 SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - As St. Louis celebrates its 250th birthday, some Illinois historic sites are being recognized for their significance to the city.
   
Three historic sites and one monument from Illinois are on a list of 250 places compiled by stl250. The group's list includes sites, tourist attractions and businesses they say have made St. Louis what it is today.
 
Cahokia Mounds, Cahokia Courthouse, and Lewis and Clark state historic sites all made the cut from Illinois. The Elijah Lovejoy Memorial in Alton, Ill. also made the list.
 
 Amy Martin is the director of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency. She says the Illinois sites represent important eras in St. Louis history, from Native American achievements to battles against slavery.
 
The list also includes places such as the Gateway Arch and Fox Theatre.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's House has endorsed a proposed amendment to the state Constitution that would enshrine a fundamental right for parents to raise their children as they see fit.
 
The House gave the measure initial approval Tuesday. It states that parents have a right to make decisions involving the "discipline, education, religious instruction, health, medical care, place of habitation, and general well-being" of children.
 
Sponsoring Republican Rep. Todd Richardson, of Poplar Bluff, says parents should have constitutional protections when it comes to raising children.
   
The proposal needs one more House vote before moving to the Senate. If it passes there, the proposed constitutional amendment would go on the November statewide ballot.

Missouri's restrictions on funeral protests can be enforced.  That's the word from Attorney General Chris Koster. 
The Attorney General's announcement comes after a second federal judge ruled in favor of the law that bars protests within 300 feet of funerals from an hour before until an hour after the service ends.
 
Last April, a federal appeals court rejected a free-speech challenge to the buffer zone.  
This latest ruling on Tuesday dismissed a claim that the time restriction was unconstitutionally vague.  
 
Both lawsuits had been brought by members of the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church.  
The group frequently protests funerals claiming God's vengeance for America's tolerance for homosexuals.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A state Senate committee has advanced legislation that could raise Missouri's minimum wage to $10 an hour.
Tuesday's vote by a Senate business committee means the proposed increase could be brought up later for debate by the full Senate. But there is no guarantee that will occur, because the measure has been opposed by many Republicans who control the Legislature.
The bill by Democratic Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, of St. Louis, would raise Missouri's minimum wage to $10 an hour in 2015 and continue to adjust it annually for inflation.
The state's minimum wage currently stands at $7.50 an hour - 25 cents more than the federal minimum wage. Missouri's minimum wage already is adjusted annually for inflation, as a result of a 2006 law approved by voters.
The minimum wage bill is SB531.
