JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — There will be no immediate answer on how Missouri replaces a lieutenant governor who leaves partway through a term.

Governor Jay Nixon vetoed legislation to require a new lieutenant governor be selected during the next general election while an aide for the departing officeholder handles ministerial duties in the meantime. Under the vetoed bill, the lieutenant governor's responsibilities as Senate president were to be handled by a senator.

The Democratic governor says the measure would have created a "confusing and untenable process."

Missouri governors appoint replacements to other statewide offices, but there has been uncertainty about how the lieutenant governor should be succeeded.

Jason Smith, who now is a congressman, sponsored the Missouri legislation. He criticized the veto and says voters should be able to elect a new lieutenant governor.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Some University of Missouri engineers are teaming up with colleagues at Duke University to develop a low-cost toilet for developing countries with water shortages.

The Columbia Missourian reports that MU's Carbon Recycling Center is participating in the Reinvent the Toilet Challenge sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The challenge is how to develop a device that can conserve water for use in areas where clean drinking water is scarce.

The center's research project heats and pressurizes the waste water in an effort to produce sterile water that can be reused.

They've developed fake poop made of soybean paste, cellulose, yeast and other chemicals.

Jury finds George Zimmerman not guilty

Saturday, 13 July 2013 20:51 Published in National News

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Jury acquits George Zimmerman of second-degree murder in shooting of Trayvon Martin .

The six-member, all-woman jury began deliberating at 2:30 p.m. Friday after spending part of the day listening to the defense closing arguments and a rebuttal from the prosecution.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in Trayvon Martin's death, but jurors could also choose manslaughter. Zimmerman claims he shot Martin in self-defense.

The case drew massive protests after a 44-day delay in Zimmerman's arrest. Demonstrators demanded Zimmerman's arrest.

The police chief in Sanford, where Martin was shot and where the trial is being held, urged peace after the verdict is read.
