St. Louis – The St. Louis Public Schools' only candidate for superintendent has taken himself out of the running.
Rudy Crew notified School Board President Darnetta Clinkscale of his decision Monday afternoon.
Crew was the only candidate under serious consideration for the top job. But St. Louis Public Schools Spokesman Glynn Young says finding a candidate with a commitment to improving student performance remains the top priority.
Jefferson City, MO – Missouri Governor Bob Holden signed legislation into law Monday that toughens penalties identity theft.
That's when someone steals, for example, a credit card to buy things on another person's account.
The new law will base jail sentences on the value of items stolen. Victims will also be able to sue their suspected offender for damages, starting Aug. 28. They could recover up to five thousand dollars, or triple the actual damages, whichever is greater.
