Missouri farmers to receive drought relief

Friday, 13 December 2013 09:07 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Farmers in 27 Missouri counties will be eligible for federal aid because of drought conditions.
Gov. Jay Nixon says the U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a disaster declaration for 14 counties that have suffered from extreme or exceptional drought. Farmers in 13 adjoining counties also can receive aid.
Nixon says farmers in some northern and central Missouri counties continued to struggle from drought even as many parts of Missouri received sufficient precipitation this year.
The designation allows farmers to receive emergency loans from the federal Farm Service Agency.
The 14 primary counties in the designation are Adair, Chariton, Clark, Knox, Lewis, Macon, Mercer, Putnam, Randolph, Saline, Schuyler, Scotland, Shelby and Sullivan. The additional 13 counties are Audrain, Boone, Carroll, Cooper, Grundy, Harrison, Howard, Lafayette, Linn, Livingston, Marion, Monroe and Pettis.

Arbitrator says Freeburg justified in cops firing

Thursday, 12 December 2013 09:34 Published in Local News
FREEBURG, Ill. (AP) - A state arbitrator says a southwestern Illinois village acted appropriately when officials fired two police officers who pulled pranks on colleagues, broke into the evidence locker and damaged police property.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports arbitrator Gerard Fowler has ruled the conduct of John Blomenkamp and Steve Burrows "was so egregious and so harmful to the prosecution of future cases that the village was well advised to terminate their employment as police officers."
 A lawyer for the officers had argued that 4,300-resident St. Clair County village's actions against his clients may have been politically motivated by their union activities.
Blomenkamp and Burrows had sought their jobs back and pay retroactive to their firings in August of last year.
