A report from the Missouri State Highway Patrol
A Fenton woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 141 last week, the Missouri State Highway Patrol reports. Joshua B. Holdenried, of House Springs, was traveling behind a vehicle driven by Ladonna K. Ly on southbound 141 around 5:46 p.m. on May 14, according to the report. When Ly slowed down just north of 13th Street, Holdenried swerved to avoid hitting Ly’s vehicle, but struck the car’s back end.

Who’s NOT planning a BBQ this weekend? If the weather holds and you’ve got propane or charcoal, chances are, you’re grilling something with your friends and family. Here, new ideas for keeping your costs down. Sponsored by Home Depot.
Here at Patch, we like to be thrifty, so we talked to two barbeque experts and uncovered some really good ideas to help you save money on your next outdoor party. 1. Start with a marinade. This means planning ahead -- say, Friday. But it’s worth it, says Rick Browne, host of Barbeque America on PBS, because you can pass up that well-marbled ribeye steak and buy a less tender and less expensive choice to grill like a flank steak or chuck steak. Just marinate it or brine for one or two days and then cook long and slow on the barbeque grill to break down tissues but maintain moisture. “You need to include an acid in the marinade, perhaps juice, vinegar or soy sauce, but avoid cola which is so acidic it can turn meat into a soggy mess.” Try …

The district will add to its projected $11 million budget deficit with the move to grant increased pay for teachers and administrators.
A recent round of pay increases for teachers and administrative staff at Rockwood will not come cheaply for the district, according to information provided by school officials. It’s predicted that the measures, which are aimed at increasing the rate of salary increases employees receive, will add more than $1 million to the district’s personnel costs next year. In passing the upped salaries, district officials and school board members said they were necessary to retain Rockwood's reputation for educational excellence and in recognition of the community's appreciation for its teachers. Previously, the district had budgeted around $2.5 million for teacher salary increases next year, which took into account raises of 2.75 percent. The …

Nationwide, gas prices were predicted to be lower this summer compared to the last three years, but that won't translate into savings at the pump this Memorial Day weekend, experts said. "Motorists this year are facing rising gas prices heading into the Memorial Day holiday," said Michael Green, a AAA spokesman, adding that Memorial Day 2013 would probably be the most expensive since 2011. In past years, prices have declined heading into early summer as oil refineries produced more gasoline to meet expected summer driving demand. This year, though, Midwest refineries haven't …
