St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - A question for registered voters in Illinois, have you voted today? If you answered no, you are in what appears to be an overwhelming majority.

 

Keith Dudding is an election judge in Madison County and says this year's attendance could be one for the books. Dudding says at his location, on two of 300 registered voters had cast a ballot in the first two-and-a-half hours of voting.

 

KTRS has discovered the same experience at other polling places. Our reporter visited three separate polling places and officials at all locations gave a similar story--turnout is historically low.

 

There is still time to get to the ballot--polls close at 7 PM. 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The mid-February kidnapping death of a 10-year-old Springfield girl has led to calls to changes Missouri's Amber Alert system.
 
Fourth-grader Hailey Owens was walking just a block from her home when she was abducted.  Springfield police responded within 10 minutes of the initial 911 call. But the statewide child abduction alert didn't go out for more than two hours.
   
The Kansas City Star reports that a grassroots campaign in southwest Missouri is working to speed up an alert system that requires three-page forms be filled out by hand and then sent by fax.
 
Middle school football coach Craig Michael Wood has been charged in the girl's death after police reported finding her body in Wood's basement.

Hatchery considered in effort to bring back shiner

Tuesday, 18 March 2014 12:32 Published in Local News
JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri fish hatchery is being considered for an effort to reintroduce the endangered Topeka shiner fish back into state streams after being on the verge of extinction.
 
The Joplin Globe reports the minnows currently are found in two Missouri creeks and previously were found in a third until about 1990. They also can be found in portions of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota and South Dakota.
 
Fisheries biologist Jerry Wiechman with the Missouri Department of Conservation says there are a few details to be worked out before the shiners can be raised at the Neosho National Fish Hatchery in southwest Missouri.
 
Wiechman says studies examining why the Topeka shiner is disappearing don't point to a specific culprit, but generally the fish disappears where human activity increases.
