Ryan explains decision to back out of St. Louis

Saturday, 14 December 2013 08:01 Published in Local News

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan says his verbal commitment to take a job in St. Louis was made hastily while he was still upset over his firing in Dallas.

He says he backed out because he owed it to himself and his family to make sure he found the best fit for his style as a coach.

Ryan says that after jumping between several jobs during the past half-decade, his next move needed to be one he believed most would last.

He says he admires Rams coach Jeff Fisher and his staff. However, Ryan points out that St. Louis uses more of a 4-3 scheme, while he prefers a 3-4 front.

On Sunday, Ryan and the Saints bring their sixth-ranked defense into St. Louis.

Appeals court vacates ban on US horse slaughter

Saturday, 14 December 2013 08:00 Published in Local News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A federal appeals court has cleared the way for companies in New Mexico, Missouri and Iowa to resume domestic horse slaughter.

In an order Friday, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver removed an emergency injunction that had blocked the plants from opening.

The Humane Society of the United States and other animal protection groups appealed after a federal judge in Albuquerque rejected their lawsuit alleging the Department of Agriculture failed to conduct proper environmental studies when it issued permits for the slaughterhouses.

An attorney for Valley Meat Company of Roswell, New Mexico and Rains Natural Meats of Gallatin, Missouri says by lifting the stay, the appellate court is saying it's unlikely the protection groups would win their appeal.

Still, attorney Blair Dunn says it could be months before the court makes a final ruling on the animal protection groups' appeal.

Franklin County man accused of murdering father

Saturday, 14 December 2013 07:57 Published in Local News

ST. CLAIR, Mo. (AP) — Police have charged a 33-year-old Franklin County man with first-degree murder in the death of his father.

The St. Louis-Post Dispatch reports that worried relatives found the body of 57-year-old William J. Osborn Thursday afternoon after forcing their way into his Lonedell home.

Franklin Sheriff Gary Toelke says William Patton Osborn had a volatile relationship with his father and had sold one of the elder Osborn's guns in St. Clair after the killing.

He is also charged with armed criminal action for allegedly stealing his father's truck, a motorcycle and firearms.

Osborn was jailed with a cash-only bond of $100,000. Online court records don't list an attorney on his behalf.
