ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A 21-year-old Raytown man is dead after he was reportedly shot by a St. Charles County deputy while threatening suicide and displaying a gun.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Anthony Kovac died Saturday night. He was in the St. Louis area visiting his grandparents.
Sheriff Lt. Dave Tiefenbrunn says four deputies found Kovac in a rear bedroom and asked him to leave the room. The lieutenant says Kovac was shot when he raised a gun and pointed it toward one of the deputies.
 
Authorities say the victim was intoxicated and had threatened to kill himself. The unnamed deputy is on paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation.
 

Governor Nixon heads north of the border

Monday, 03 March 2014 15:37 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - After a one-day weather delay, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is heading to Canada on a business trip.
Nixon was leaving Missouri on Monday to travel to Canada. He originally had been scheduled to depart Sunday but postponed that because of a winter storm that brought snow, sleet and ice to parts of the state.
The governor plans to travel to Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto to meet with Canadian government and business leaders. He is scheduled to return to Missouri on Thursday.
Nixon's travel costs are being paid for by the Hawthorn Foundation, a nonprofit organization that frequently finances gubernatorial trade missions.
 

Governor Nixon gives thumbs-up to Keystone Pipeline

Monday, 03 March 2014 15:32 Published in Local News
 JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is supporting the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline, joining other Midwestern governors who are urging President Barack Obama to approve its construction.
   In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday, Nixon cited energy independence and economic growth as reasons to support the pipeline's construction. The State Department is taking comments on the project before making a recommendation to Obama on whether to approve it.
   The Democratic governor says the project would promote energy independence in an "environmentally responsible way."
   The pipeline would travel through the heart of the United States, carrying oil derived from tar sands in western Canada to a hub in Nebraska, where it would connect with existing pipelines.
