 BLOOMSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania school district is giving its tiger-head logo a face-lift after a complaint from the University of Missouri that the feline face was too similar to its own image.
 
The (Bloomsburg) Press Enterprise says university officials sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Southern Columbia Area School District in November.
 
Superintendent Paul Caputo says the emblem is on the Columbia County district's marquee, the new gym floor and various booster and sports-affiliated websites and gear.
 
He says the two institutions have come to an agreement under which Southern will tweak its logo enough that it's not infringing on the University of Missouri's copyright.
 
The changes will be phased in slowly instead of changing everything at once, although apparel will no longer be made with the emblem.
 
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers are putting more money into the budget to try to speed up the results of newborn blood screenings.  
 
A budget plan pending in the House would add about $150,000 for the state public health laboratory to conduct newborn screenings on Saturdays and have a courier service on Sundays.  
 
The money was inserted into the budget last week by House Budget Committee Chairman Rick Stream, of Kirkwood. It's supported by House member Sheila Solon, of Blue Springs.
 
Solon cited research showing that Missouri ranks poorly in how quickly the newborn blood samples reach labs for testing. She told The Kansas City Star that she hopes the additional money can help speed up the process and potentially save lives.  Missouri screens babies for 79 different health conditions.

Missouri Tigers head to the Small Dance

Monday, 17 March 2014 10:31 Published in Local News
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - For the first time in six years, the Missouri Tigers are left out of the NCAA tournament. 
 
As expected, the Tigers failed to earn a spot in the field of 68 when the brackets were announced Sunday. Instead, Missouri (22-11) earned a No. 2 seed in the National Invitational Tournament and will play Southern Conference champion Davidson (20-12) at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Mizzou Arena.
 
Missouri coach Frank Haith told the Columbia Tribune that his team is excited to play in the NIT, even though the goal is to make the NCAA tournament every year.
 
Missouri was ranked in the top 25 early this season, but a 9-9 record in the Southeastern Conference doomed the chance for an NCAA berth. Just three SEC teams made the tournament field.
