Four inductees announced for Hall of Famous Missourians

Monday, 09 December 2013 13:17 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Four new inductees into the Hall of Famous Missourians include a physician credited as the father of osteopathic medicine and a science fiction writer.

The hall is a collection of bronze busts that generally has honored people chosen by the House speaker. However, half the new inductees this time were chosen through a public nomination and vote.

The four inductees were identified to The Associated Press by House Speaker Tim Jones before they were publicly announced.

The people's top choice was Andrew Taylor Still, who founded the American School of Osteopathy in Kirksville. Science fiction writer Robert Heinlein also won public support.

For his part, House Speaker Tim Jones chose suffragist Virginia Minor and the late conservative politician Mel Hancock.

Fort Leonard Wood transitioning to traditional training

Monday, 09 December 2013 12:19 Published in Local News

FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (AP) - The U.S. military's withdrawal from the Middle East has prompted Fort Leonard Wood to return to its more traditional ways for training recruits.

During the wars in the Middle East, the fort trained recruits in the ways that mimicked the experiences they would encounter there.

Maj. Gen. Leslie Smith, commander at the fort, says the change is part of a large shift at the post back to missions that existed before the wars.

For example, the Army Engineer School will continue studying how to counter improvised explosive devices. But more attention will be paid to traditional missions such as building and demolishing structures and bridging rivers.

Smith told The Springfield News-Leader that with troops not deploying as much, the focus is on how to keep them combat-ready.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - After going nearly three years without an execution, Missouri is preparing for its second in three weeks.

Allen Nicklasson is scheduled to die at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday for killing Richard Drummond, a businessman who stopped to help when he saw a car stranded along Interstate 70 in 1994. Nicklasson and two others forced Drummond to drive to a secluded area, where Nicklasson killed him.

One of the other men, Dennis Skillicorn, was put to death in 2009. The third, Tim DeGraffenreid, was spared the death penalty.

Missouri executed racist serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin on Nov. 20, the state's first-ever execution using a single drug, pentobarbital.

Nicklasson's attorney, Jennifer Herndon, has asked the Missouri Supreme Court to intervene and says she will also seek clemency from Gov. Jay Nixon.
