Missouri Legislators Play The Name Game

State lawmakers are beginning to single-out their legislation with names of children, like Bryce and Sahara.


If you drive past the Old Courthouse downtown you'll notice that workers are starting to take down the scaffolding that has completely surrounded the historic structure for more than a year. Building Restoration Co. out of St. Paul Minnesota undertook the $3.47 million project to replace more than 500 limestone cornice stones which had stood up to a century-and-a-half of the St. Louis blistering summer, freezing winter cycle. The Old Courthouse, which among other things served as the site of the ground-breaking Dred Scott decision, now looks much like it did when it was completed in 1862 during the U.S. Civil War, although work on the building had begun 23 years earlier in 1839.
