Debate over future of embattled state lawmaker

Thursday, 07 November 2013 13:29 Published in Local News

The future of a troubled state lawmaker is unclear. Democratic Missouri State Representative Steve Webb was charged yesterday for theft and campaign finance violations.

Prosecutors say that Webb solicited donations for an event in Washington DC, instead, he deposited that money in a personal account. Shortly after the charges, the AP reported that House Minority leader Jake Hummel said Webb told his office he planned to resign. Later Wednesday, Webb told reporters he had no plans to step down. 

Thursday, Hummel released a statement saying standing by his previous comments, that Webb told him he planned to resign. Hummel continues that for the sake of his family and constituents, Webb should resign. Webb represents portions of North St. Louis County, including Florissant.

Trooper the dog, up for adoption!

Wednesday, 06 November 2013 17:49 Published in Local News

You might remember Trooper--the dog who was nearly killed after being dragged for nearly a mile down Interstate 55 almost a year ago.

Trooper was injured after Benetta Johnson tried to return then six-month old Trooper to her estranged husband by tying the dog to the bumper of her husband's truck. He did not notice the dog and dragged the puppy down I-55, until a fellow motorist notice Trooper and got him to pull over. Johnson was convicted on misdemeanor animal abuse charges and ordered to perform community service, take animal care classes, and make a donation to the Humane Society. 

You can apply to adopt Trooper at: www.hsmo.org/adopttrooper.

Applicants must answer lifestyle questions and provide information about their home environment. Trooper is best suited to a home without other animals and with older children. He will be a good fit for an adopter who understands how to lovingly manage intelligent, strong dogs and has time to spend further training him and providing appropriate exercise. A secure outside area is also a necessity. 

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon says the state will help finance the estimated $2 million needed to remove mold and make repairs at the historic Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City.

The prison has become a major attraction since it stopped housing inmates in 2004, but high levels of mold forced officials to close it to the public in October. Officials say it had been on pace for more than 20,000 visitors this year.

Nixon said Wednesday the state and the Jefferson City government will share the costs evenly, with a goal of resuming public tours next spring. Three buildings and the gas chamber will be repaired.

The penitentiary began housing inmates in 1836 and was the oldest continually operating prison west of the Mississippi River when it closed.
