Sen. McCaskill puzzled by attack ad

Wednesday, 24 July 2013 13:31 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Sen. Claire McCaskill has long been an advocate for victims of sexual assault in the military, so the Missouri Democrat is perplexed after being singled out in newspaper and Facebook ads calling her a roadblock to reforming the system.

Protect Our Defenders, a Washington-based advocacy group for military sexual assault victims, took aim at McCaskill in a half-page St. Louis Post-Dispatch ad over her opposition to an amendment proposed by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. Gillibrand's proposal would authorize military lawyers - rather than commanding officers - to decide which cases go to trial.

McCaskill favors reforms suggested by the House Armed Services military personnel subcommittee. She says she finds the ad puzzling given her history criticizing the military's handling of sexual assault cases.

 

Paddler dies after dropping out of Missouri River race

Wednesday, 24 July 2013 13:23 Published in Local News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Organizers of a Missouri River race say a paddler died in his sleep after dropping out of the competition.

The Kansas City Star reports that the man had competed in the first day of the Missouri American Water MR340 on Tuesday. Race director and founder Scott Mansker said Wednesday that the man was camping overnight in Miami, Mo., when he died.

The paddler's boat partner had decided not to continue after Tuesday's leg of the race. Mansker said the man and his ground crew decided to continue to follow the race after withdrawing from the competition in Lexington.

The race is a four-day, 340-mile trek across Missouri from Kansas City to St. Charles.

Mehlville School District officials are giving an update to parents and students in the district about the impending transfer of students from Riverview Gardens.

Riverview Gardens is paying to bus students to Mehlville. Parents in both districts objected to the decision. The school board meeting is being held at the Mehlville School Administration Building at 7 PM.
