Mizzou to build teaching winery

Monday, 30 December 2013 10:31 Published in Local News
 COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri-Columbia has raised half of the $3 million it needs to build a teaching winery.
The Columbia Missourian reports that the university now is seeking matching money from the state for the facility. Plans call for a research building and wine and food education facility to be added in later phases.
Wine and Grape Research Committee chairman Tony Kooyumjian says the proposed teaching winery would be a commercial winery. It would replace a much smaller, experimental winery. The goal is for students to make and bottle more than 2,000 cases of wine yearly; the current facility produces 100 cases at most a year.
Kooyumjian says he hopes to break ground in spring 2015 with completion that fall.
 
CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois State Police will have more details for the public on what's expected as Illinois implements the concealed carry of firearms.
 Authorities have planned a news conference for Monday in Chicago. They're expected to outline the application process for a concealed carry license. The application will be available on January 5.
ISP spokeswoman Monique Bond says officials will address questions the public has had about the process.
Earlier this year, Illinois became the last state nationwide to approve a law allowing the public possession of a concealed weapon.
Governor Pat Quinn last week named a panel that'll review applications for permits to carry concealed firearms. It's called the Concealed Carry Licensing Review Board. Members will consider any objections of an applicant's eligibility for a permit filed by authorities.
   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A Republican lawmaker says he's ready to push legislation expediting the process to terminate state-funded pensions for public official convicted of corruption.
State Rep. Dwight Kay of Glen Carbon tells the Belleville News-Democrat he was moved to co-sponsor legislation in part because of a former county treasurer who was convicted of rigging tax liens.
The newspaper reported in October that ex-Madison County Treasurer Fred Bathon was still collecting a $90,000 pension. It was halted this month.
The law says public officials found guilty of corruption can collect pensions until sentencing. Kay's bill would allow termination at a guilty plea or conviction. Lawmakers return to Springfield in late January.
