No Tuition Increase At SIU

Friday, 18 April 2014 08:13 Published in Local News
CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - New students at Southern Illinois University won't be paying more for tuition this fall.
WSIU Radio reports the university system's trustees on Thursday opted against raising the tuition by 3 percent for newcomers to the Carbondale campus and 5 percent for those in Edwardsville.
 
The board's chairman, Randal Thomas, says there was no traction for boosting tuition costs, especially as the university system takes on a new president at the first of next month.
 
Trustees will consider proposals for fee increases at their meeting in May.

KC Highway Shooting Suspect Arrested

Friday, 18 April 2014 08:09 Published in Local News

Kansas City police are crediting what they call "lots of tips" in the case of a series of highway shootings in that area over the past five weeks. Authorities raided a Grandview, Missouri residence Thursday afternoon and arrested a man suspected in those shootings that injured three people and put drivers on edge.

As many as 12 shootings have been linked to one suspect.  The name of the suspect has not been released and Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forté says more details will be released at a news conference today.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Pizza parlors, doughnut stores and other restaurants could get a tax break under legislation passed by the Missouri House.
 
The bill would grant a sales tax exemption on the electricity used to produce food that is sold to customers at restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores and convenience stores.
The Department of Revenue estimates the proposed tax break could reduce total state revenues by between $4 million and $20 million annually.
 
Republican House member Craig Redmon, of Canton, says his bill was prompted partly by a recent state Supreme Court ruling that said Schnucks grocery stores could not get tax-free electricity to warm their food under Missouri's existing laws.
 
The legislation passed the House by a 134-12 vote Thursday. It now goes to the Senate.
