Napster co-founder ties the knot

Sunday, 02 June 2013 08:06 Published in National News

BIG SUR, Calif. (AP) — A spokesman for former Facebook president and Napster co-founder Sean Parker says the wealthy Web entrepreneur has married singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas.

Matthew Hiltzik says the couple wed Saturday evening in front of 300 family members and friends at the swanky Ventana Inn & Spa in Big Sur. He says the couple's daughter, Winter, participated in the ceremony.

Parker helped start the music-sharing site Napster and was an early Facebook adviser who served as its first president. He was portrayed by Justin Timberlake in the movie "The Social Network."

Forbes estimates the 33-year-old's net worth at $2 billion.

University of Missouri Press is back in business

Sunday, 02 June 2013 08:03 Published in Local News

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The University of Missouri Press is back in the business of publishing scholarly books after a year of uncertainty.

A public uproar ensued in May 2012 when university administrators disclosed plans to shutter the academic press. By the end of the summer, the University of Missouri system had backtracked on those plans and tried to repair the damage to its image.

The press recently released its fall/winter catalog with 10 new books and 15 electronic books. The publishing house is now part of the flagship Columbia campus rather than the university system, and a search for a new director continues.

Press supporters say they hope the threat to its survival will allow the business to prosper even as modern technology poses continual challenges.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tasked with urgently warning their region when violent weather is imminent, the National Weather Service crew in suburban St. Louis isn't immune from having to scramble for its own safety.

During severe storms that thundered into the area on Friday night, meteorologists noticed a storm system's tight rotation perilously close to their office in Weldon Spring, west of St. Louis.

Forty-six-year-old meteorologist Mark Britt says he and about 10 others bolted for a copy room with reinforced walls and hunkered down. That was only after they called upon their Kansas City colleagues to monitor the storm and issue any public warnings for eastern Missouri.

Britt says it's the first time during his office's nearly quarter century in Weldon Spring that they've had to scurry for cover.
