Next MO legislative session gets underway at noon today

Wednesday, 08 January 2014 04:11 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - It's opening day at the Missouri Capitol, where lawmakers are gathering for the start of their annual session.
   The session that begins at noon Wednesday will officially be known as the Second Regular Session of the 97th General Assembly. It will run through May 16.
   The agenda will be topped by an effort for the second straight year to cut income taxes, and proposals to revamp a Missouri law allowing students in unaccredited districts to transfer to other nearby schools.
   For the first time in a while, lawmakers also will be operating under different revenue projections than Gov. Jay Nixon. Those financial differences could be magnified when the Democratic governor outlines his budget proposals Jan. 21.
   Republicans outnumber Democrats 108-52 in the House and 24-9 in the Senate.
 

Local forest to be part of global climate change study

Wednesday, 08 January 2014 03:12 Published in Local News

   A small patch of forest in St. Louis County could be a big part of understanding global climate change.  

   In November, the 60-acre plot at Washington University's Tyson Research Center near Eureka was named a Smithsonian Institution Global Earth Observatory.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the land between Lone Elk and West Tyson County Parks is now part of a network of 52 other forest plots scattered around the world being used to study climate change and biodiversity.  

   In part, the Smithsonian project is examining both how climate change affects forests and how forests affect climate change.  

   The Tyson plot is expected to provide a lot of information because scientists have been monitoring it since the 1980s and have collected data covering two of Missouri's worst droughts, 1988 and 2012.  The latter was the worst on record.

Former St. Louis Blues players include Kelly Chase, Reed Low, Jeff Brown, Terry Yake, Gino Cavallini, John Wensink, Alex Brooks and Steve Martins.
