Senate last week.
According to State
Senator Gary Nodler, Senate Bill 858 contains a

throughout the nation have adopted policies that
would give illegal immigrants sanctuary,"
says Nodler. " This legislation would
prohibit municipalities within our state from
adopting any such policy. Any city, town, or
village that does provide sanctuary to those here
illegally would not be able to receive any state
grants. Other states have also considered schemes
that would allow illegal immigrants to receive a
drivers license. Under SB 858, illegal
immigrants would be unable to obtain a
drivers license from the Missouri
Department of Revenue. The bill also specifies
that a drivers license issued to an illegal
immigrant in another state would not be valid in

doesnt matter whether ya put the red on

Q: In midwinter
I moved into an apartment that had been occupied
by a smoker. Cleaning up wasnt too bad --
there was no carpet to worry about, and the
drapes had been removed. However, the walls are
all dingy and Id like to freshen up the
place. Will my landlord allow me to paint the
apartment? Do you have any tips on making the
apartment look bigger and airier? -- Jeri K., via
A: Painting your
apartment shouldnt be a problem. Most
apartment leases include sections on redecorating
-- specifically painting, wallpapering and
carpeting. Check your lease to see if there are
any limits on the types of colors one can use or
even if the apartment management or landlord
offers any rebates for doing improvements
want to be informed of any painting or related
work in an apartment. A heads-up is not only
polite, but can also be helpful if there are
areas that the landlord needs you to avoid or to
be careful around, or if he or she would prefer
that you use latex or oil-based paints.
Here are a few
walls a couple of days before painting by dipping
a sponge in warm, soapy water and wringing it out
well. This will remove grimy residue and help the
new coat of paint better adhere to the old
spackling paste over unused nail holes and smooth
using a putty knife.
Try to use
the same type of paint -- latex or oil-based --
as the old coat. If this is not possible or you
dont know for sure, apply a coat of primer
paint the day before painting.
goes for significant color changes, especially if
youre painting a light color over a darker
one -- apply primer beforehand.
HOME TIP: Painting
the walls and ceiling with lighter colors can
make a room seem bigger, brighter and cooler,
while darker colors give a room a warmer, cozier
