FULTON, Mo. (AP) - Three employees have been injured in an accident at a nuclear plant in central Missouri.
Local emergency managers say workers were burned last night at the Callaway Energy Center about 25 miles northeast of Jefferson City.
Ameren says the accident didn't affect operations at the plant.
Rockwood School District voters not only rejected a $38.4 million bond issue Tuesday, but they also ousted two longtime board members after much controversy and criticism.
Challengers Loralee Mondl and Jeffrey Morrell drew roughly twice as many votes as the incumbents, School Board President Janet Strate and member Steve Banton.
The bond measure, which required a four-sevenths majority for passage, would have provided for renovations, security measures and other updates.
It's on to Day Three in the impeaching hearings for Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul. No conclusion was reached last night after another nearly six-hour session at Ellisville Elementary School. The Ellisville City Counsel is seeking to remove Adam Paul from office, claiming he abused and overstepped his authority. The hearing will resume at 1 p.m. today.
Voters in St. Louis City and St. Louis County also voted to pass Proposition P, also known as the Arch Tax. A sales tax hike of 3/16 of a cent will now go towards improving parks, trails, and the Gateway Arch. A tax increase of that size adds up to about 2 cents for every $10 dollars spent. It's expected to raise about $780 million over the next 20 years, or about $39 million a year. Prop P had to pass in both the city and county. It passed in the city with 67% of the vote, and it passed in the county with 53%.
