The Missouri University of Science and Technology is continuing a tradition that began in 1908 when a group of Rolla students declared that St. Patrick was the patron saint of engineers.
The St. Patrick's celebration has grown to include more than a week's worth of events. The first is from March 4 through March 7 when students will club plastic snakes with large decorative sticks called shillelaghs. On March 13, a Missouri S&T student portraying St. Pat will arrive in downtown Rolla with his court aboard the traditional manure spreader.
Missouri power companies would track costs for operations and maintenance for their next rate case under proposed state legislation.

Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander said that some businesses are receiving a phony letter that appears to come from his office.
Kander's office said the letter comes from an entity called Corporate Records Service. He said it falsely suggests Missouri businesses have to complete a certain form and pay a $125 fee.
Kander said the letter looks official but is not from his office. Any official correspondence from the Secretary of State's Office will contain the Missouri state seal and contact information for its Corporations Division.
