Normandy supporters ask lawmakers for emergency funds

Monday, 03 February 2014 17:15 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Supporters of an unaccredited St. Louis area school district are making their case to Missouri lawmakers for a $5 million infusion to avoid shutting down.
 
The Normandy School District is in jeopardy of running out of money in April and is seeking state help to remain open for the rest of the school years.
 
District officials came to the Missouri Capitol on Monday along with by a high school senior, parent, teacher and other community leaders. They pleaded with members of the Senate Appropriations Committee to include $5 million in a supplemental state budget bill.
 
Normandy is running short on money because state law requires unaccredited districts to pay for students who chose to transfer to other nearby public school systems.

Rutherford claims may be hurdle in governor's race

Monday, 03 February 2014 15:47 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - Treasurer Dan Rutherford was set to make a big splash in the Republican race for governor this week with his television ads scheduled to hit the airwaves. Instead, he's seeing headlines about allegations of misconduct made by an employee.
 
The Republican called a last-minute news conference last week to say unspecific claims by an employee in his office were untrue and connected to his rival Republican Bruce Rauner.
 
Political experts say the move was risky weeks from the March 18 primary.
 
For one, he opens himself up to more scrutiny. Democratic campaign strategist Pete Giangreco says there are more questions than answers.
 
However, Rutherford could use the attention to his advantage. Political analyst Thom Serafin says it raises Rutherford's exposure level and if handled correctly could benefit him.
