JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has signed legislation that would expand the definition of eggs.
The measure approved on Friday defines eggs edible for human consumption as those produced by chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and guinea fowl. Current law only included chicken eggs in its definition.
Nixon says the expanded definition will allow the state Department of Agriculture to inspect the additional types of eggs and make sure they are kept clean and at proper temperatures.
The bill was sponsored by Republican Sen. Dan Brown, of Rolla.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — The newest members of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame include men who helped lead the St. Louis Cardinals to championships in the 1960s.
The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that Roger Maris and Curt Flood were inducted Thursday in Springfield, along with scout Tom Greenwade. Another Cardinals star from the era, Mike Shannon, was honored as the 26th Missouri Sports Legend with a bust at the museum. Shannon has been a broadcaster for the team for more than four decades.
The ceremony also honored the 1964 and 1967 World Series champion Cardinals teams. Flood and Shannon were on both teams. Maris was traded from the New York Yankees to the Cardinals prior to the 1967 season.
All three also played on the 1968 team that lost the World Series to Detroit.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Operators of a Missouri movie theater are apologizing for a stunt in which an actor dressed in black, wearing body armor and carrying a fake rifle walked into the movie house.
The stunt occurred last weekend during a promotion for the movie "Iron Man 3" at the Goodrich Capital 8 Theaters in Jefferson City.
Actors appeared at the theater, including some dressed as officers and one as Iron Man. Another actor was wearing what appeared to be assault gear and carrying a rifle.
Some frightened moviegoers called 911, recalling the shooting in July at a Colorado movie theater during the premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises." That attack killed 12 people.
Management apologized Friday on the theater's Facebook page, saying it was meant to be part of the entertainment.
