CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - The teen gunman who fatally shot a fellow student at his suburban Denver high school earlier this month entered through a door that was propped open.
 
Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Monday that the Arapahoe High School door is supposed to be locked but was frequently left open. If it had been locked, Robinson thinks 18-year-old Karl Pierson, armed with a shotgun, machete and over 100 rounds of ammunition would have just have found another way inside.
 
Pierson shot senior Claire Davis point-blank in the face soon after entering through the open door. Investigators believe his main target was a speech team coach who had disciplined him but also say he likely wanted to hurt many others. He killed himself as a deputy assigned to the school closed in.

Missouri minimum wage to see inflation increase

Monday, 30 December 2013 13:53 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Wages will rise for Missouri's low-income workers and taxes will fall for some corporations when the new year arrives.
 
Missouri's minimum wage will increase for about 100,000 workers from $7.35 an hour to $7.50. The increase is a result of an annual inflationary adjustment included in a law passed by voters in 2006.
 
The state's corporate franchise tax rate also will ratchet down in 2014. That's the result of a 2011 law passed by legislators that gradually phases out the franchise tax by 2016.
 
Other new laws taking effect Wednesday are the result of bills passed in 2013. Those include additional health screenings for newborns and new benefit entitlements for workers' compensation claims stemming from serious illnesses.
 

14 Missouri schools to split millions in federal funds

Monday, 30 December 2013 13:52 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Fourteen Missouri schools will share $7.5 million in federal funds aimed at low-achieving schools.
 
The state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has awarded funding to eight schools in St. Louis and four in St. Louis County's Riverview Gardens School District. Also receiving money are Martin Luther King Elementary in Kansas City and Frederick Douglass High School in Columbia.
 
This is Missouri's third round of funding from the federal School Improvement Grants program.
 
State officials say schools generally use the money for hiring staff such as instructional coaches and career counselors. Other uses include special reading and math programs, professional development, and extended learning programs such as classes on Saturdays or during spring and winter breaks.
