The Missouri Bar has canceled its planned debate for the state Attorney General’s race.
The debate had been planned for Friday, October 19th, in St. Louis at the Missouri Bar’s annual meeting. Spokeswoman Farrah Fite says they canceled the debate because Republican nominee Ed Martin did not RSVP by Thursday’s deadline. She added that incumbent Democrat Chris Koster and Libertarian nominee Dave Browning had accepted the invitation.
The Missouri Department of Transportation plans to buy 250,000 seedlings from a Conservation Department nursery to replace thousands of trees knocked down during highway projects. Conservation officials will then distribute the trees to youth groups and schools for planting.
This is the sixth year of Missouri's Trees for Tomorrow program. Officials say more than 2.5 million trees of roughly 60 varieties have been provided since the program started in 2007.
