Former police chief facing theft and forgery charges

Saturday, 02 November 2013 08:34 Published in Local News

PERRYVILLE, Mo. (AP) — The former police chief in the southeast Missouri town of Perryville is facing charges of felony theft, forgery and misdemeanor making a false report.

The Southeast Missourian reports that charges were filed Thursday against Keith Tarrillion by the Missouri Attorney General's office, which had been investigating Tarrillion on allegations made by city employees earlier this year.

Tarrillion does not have a listed attorney.

He resigned as chief in March, but remains on the city payroll as part of a resignation agreement.

In the wake of Tarrillion's resignation, Perryville city officials decided to ask voters whether the police chief position should be elected or appointed. A vote on the issue is Tuesday.

Lieutenant Governor Kinder won't run for Congress

Saturday, 02 November 2013 08:33 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder has decided not to run for a southeast Missouri congressional seat next year.

Kinder announced his decision in a written statement Friday, about a month after he publicly said he was considering a congressional bid.

A campaign would have meant a primary challenge against Republican U.S. Representative Jason Smith, who won a special election for the 8th Congressional District in June.

Kinder noted in his statement that campaigns can be physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting. He said, quote: "An all-out run for Congress over the next year just isn't in the cards."

Kinder was elected last year to his third term as lieutenant governor. He said he plans to serve the remainder of the term, which runs until January 2017.

Microburst blamed for damage in Cape Girardeau

Saturday, 02 November 2013 08:31 Published in Local News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A microburst is being blamed for storm damage in Cape Girardeau.

The storm struck Thursday night, making for a treacherous Halloween, but there were no reports of injuries.

The Southeast Missourian reports that winds of up to 95 miles per hour were reported on the city's south side.

The National Weather Service concluded the storm was the result of a microburst, though officials with the service say a weak tornado struck East Cape Girardeau, Ill. The twister had winds peaking at 80 mph.

Rain was heavy during the storm, and winds knocked over trees and downed power lines in Cape Girardeau. At one point, more than 2,000 customers of the utility Ameren Missouri were without power. Most electricity was restored by Friday afternoon.
