AP-MO--St. Louis Right Now,0449News of the St. Louis regionUAW VOTE Autoworkers at GM plant to conclude contract vote WENTZVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- Autoworkers at the General Motors plant in Wentzville continue voting today on whether to accept a new contract with GM. A tentative agreement was reached last week between GM and leaders of the United Auto Workers, but approval is necessary from the rank-and-file. Voting began yesterday. About 74-thousand union workers across the country will vote on the four-year deal that includes promises of new products at 16 assembly plants and a union-run trust funded by the company that would be responsible for future retiree health care costs. UAW officials said the balloting should be counted nationwide by Wednesday. The tentative deal came after a two-day national strike.COURTHOUSE HELP Grant program to aid courthouses ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) -- A new 500-thousand-dollar grant program is aimed at giving a boost to county courthouses in Missouri. Governor Blunt discussed the program yesterday during a stop in St. Charles. The Republican says courthouses play a significant role in downtown revitalization, and are often the most visible and prominent buildings in many Missouri towns. The Missouri Heritage Properties Program will administer grants to help preserve historic publicly owned buildings, with an initial emphasis on courthouses. The money comes from the state's non-resident Athletes and Entertainers' Tax.TWIN TWISTERS Two tornadoes may have hit Palmyra PALMYRA, Mo.

Power lines were knocked down and at least one car was flipped over. No serious injuries were reported. Hark says the National Weather Service believes the damage was from a pair of tornadoes, one on the south end of town, the other on the north side. Several northeast Missouri counties were hit hard by Tuesday's storms, but only a few minor injuries were reported.BUSINESS AWARDS Slay to honor companies ST.
