JEFFERSON CITY — Gov. Jay Nixon will be traveling across the state promoting golf, high-speed Internet and a new electricity project.

Nixon was to be joined Tuesday by former St. Louis Cardinals baseball star Ozzie Smith to promote the inaugural "Missouri Golf Day." After leaving the Jefferson City Country Club, Nixon was to head to Sedalia for the groundbreaking of a plant that will convert methane gas from landfills into electricity.

The governor was to attend the grand opening of six public computer centers at Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City. He said the computer centers are part of a federally funded initiative to expand access to high-speed Internet.
