The nephew of a Missouri man who killed five people at a suburban St. Louis city council meeting is running for a seat on that same governing body. 
   Jayson Thornton tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he doesn't want Kirkwood to be known only for the Feb. 7, 2008, massacre in which his uncle, Charles "Cookie" Thornton stormed into the council chamber and started shooting.
   Five people were killed and one more was seriously wounded before police fatally shot Cookie Thornton, who was mad about race relations in the Meacham Park neighborhood where Jayson Thornton now lives with his wife and children.
   The 30 year old is scheduled to appear at a forum in Kirkwood Monday night alongside candidates Timothy E. Griffin, Bob Sears, Paul Ward and Gary Reim.

   A metro-east school district is trying to determine if one of its teachers helped students cheat on state achievement tests last year.  The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Highland Community Unit School District 5 has launched an internal investigation this week.  

   Superintendent Michael Sutton tells the paper they're investigating allegations from some students that point toward "testing irregularity" during administration of the Illinois Standard Achievement Test last school year (2012-13). The teacher under investigation isn't being identified.  

   The district's findings will be submitted to the state Board of Education which will make a final determination.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- T.J. Oshie and Alexander Steen scored shootout goals and the St. Louis Blues took over the top spot in the NHL standings with a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday night.
 
In his first shootout since his memorable Olympic performance against Russia, Oshie beat Ilya Bryzgalov - a Russian - through the five-hole in the first round. Steen sealed the win in the following round after the Blues' Brian Elliott turned away Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu.
 
The Wild fell behind 2-0 early, but tied it with second-period goals from Jason Pominville and Matt Moulson.
 
Oshie and Carlo Colaiacovo scored on the second and third shots of the game for St. Louis. It was Colaiacovo's first goal since Feb. 11, 2012, a span of 42 games.
 
Bryzgalov had 21 saves in his first start for Minnesota since coming over in a trade with Edmonton on Tuesday.
 
The momentum shifted in the second after Pominville scored at 3:11 to make it 2-1.
 
Matt Moulson tied it 4 minutes later with his first goal in a Wild sweater since being acquired in a trade with Buffalo on Wednesday.
 
Mikko Koivu intercepted a clearing attempt and zipped the puck to Moulson, who was in front of the net and knocked it past Brian Elliott.
 
Elliott stopped 17 shots and kept the game tied at 2 with a lunging stick save to deny Mikael Granlund with 13 minutes left in the third period.
 
Granlund was again denied by Elliott from in close early in the overtime session.
 
The Blues have won 16 in a row against the Central Division and are now 18-0-1 in division play. They've beaten Minnesota eight straight times, outscoring the Wild 25-10.
 
The Wild are 14-6-2 since Jan. 2, but lost their second straight after a five-game winning streak.
 
Both teams played Saturday night and appeared tired at the end of the third period and in overtime.
 
NOTES: Blues F Magnus Paajarvi was a healthy scratch and was replaced by Chris Porter, who was recently recalled from AHL Chicago. ... The Wild didn't register a shot on goal until 7:02 of the first period. St. Louis didn't get a shot for the first 12 minutes of the second period. ... Minnesota's Kyle Brodziak and the Blues' Steve Ott fought 2 minutes into the game.
