Missouri unemployment rate falls; 15,000 jobs added

Tuesday, 17 December 2013 13:16 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's unemployment rate declined in November while payrolls expanded by 15,000 jobs.
 
The Missouri Department of Economic Development reported Tuesday the jobless rate fell to 6.1 percent in November from 6.5 percent in October.
 
The leading gainer was educational and health services, which added 5,200 jobs last month. The construction sector grew by 2,300 and professional and business services increased by 2,000 jobs. The information, leisure and hospitality sectors each declined by 200 jobs.
 
Missouri's civilian labor force was about 3 million, which is down 244 from October. The labor force includes people with jobs and those who are on unemployment but looking for work.

Mega Millions jackpot jumps thanks to rule change

Tuesday, 17 December 2013 12:22 Published in Local News

The Mega Millions jackpot has jumped to $636 million dollars.

 

The cash option for the jackpot is around $341 million. The near record-setting jackpot was helped in large part due to a change in the way Mega Millions is played.  

 

Players now choose five numbers from 1-75 and one number from 1-15. That change raised the odds from 1 in 176 million to the current odds of 1 in 259 million.

 

Those long odds are not slowing down ticket sales. Officials say it is still possible that tonight's jackpot could be raised again.

Missouri horse slaughter plan awaiting FDA inspection

Tuesday, 17 December 2013 12:15 Published in Local News
GALLATIN, Mo. (AP) - A small northwest Missouri company is preparing to slaughter horses for meat after a federal appeals court lifted an emergency stay on U.S. horse slaughter operations.
 
The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday lifted a temporary motion that blocked horse slaughter plants from opening.
 
David Rains, of Rains Natural Meats of Gallatin, said Tuesday he has seven horses at his property ready for slaughter, but is still waiting for an inspection by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service before beginning work.
 
It was the third time in five months that Rains and two other U.S. companies prepared to open horse slaughtering operations. Each time a court move has prevented them from opening.
 
Rains says the issue is so contentious that he's received death threats.
