Missouri denies horse slaughter application

Thursday, 23 January 2014 15:48 Published in Local News
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Citing federal budget restrictions, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources has turned down a permit request from a northwest Missouri business that sought to process horses for meat.
 
   The DNR said in a letter Thursday to David Rains, owner of Rains Natural Meats in Gallatin, that the agency has denied Rains' permit request for his proposed horse slaughter operation because the new federal budget withheld funding for required federal inspections of the slaughtering process.
 
   The resumption of commercial horse slaughter in the U.S. was effectively blocked last week when President Barack Obama signed a budget measure that stops the U.S. Department of Agriculture from spending money for inspections necessary for slaughterhouses to ship horse meat interstate and export it.
 
   Rains didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Greg Maddux and Tony La Russa will not have any logos on the caps of their Hall of Fame plaques.
 
The decision was announced Thursday by the Hall, which said Joe Torre's plaque will have the logo of the New York Yankees.
 
Plaques for Tom Glavine and Bobby Cox will have Atlanta Braves logos, and Frank Thomas' will have the logo of the Chicago White Sox.
 
The six will be inducted during ceremonies on July 27.
 

The drug dealer at the center of the St. Clair County court scandal, is headed to prison.

 

Sean McGilvery was sentenced to 10 years in prison Thursday. McGilvery pleaded guilty to selling heroin last year and said that then-judge Michael Cook was a regular customer. Court documents say that Cook stopped by McGilvery's house almost every day to pick up heroin. Cook admitted to drug charges and will be sentenced next month.

 

Another Judge, Joe Christ, died of a cocaine overdose at a cabin owned by Cook in March.
