National Guardsman suing to get job back

Friday, 21 February 2014 10:14 Published in Local News
GALENA, Mo. (AP) - A National Guardsman from southwest Missouri is suing Stone County because his job was given to someone else while he was deployed.
In a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday, Ryan Joy says when he was deployed in May 2012, he was a mechanic working as shop manager for the Stone County.
When he returned in 2013, the county told him he would no longer be the manager. He was given a lesser position and eventually left because of what he calls a hostile workplace.
Joy says he contacted the Department of Labor, which told county officials that they were violating a federal law by not reinstating Joy to his previous position.
The Springfield News-Leader reports the county filed court documents denying many of Joy's claims.

Lawmaker says Olympic prizes shouldn't be taxed

Thursday, 20 February 2014 09:47 Published in Local News
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - An Illinois lawmaker says Olympic athletes who win medals shouldn't have to pay state tax on their awards.
State Sen. Julie Morrison is sponsor of legislation approved by a Senate committee Wednesday that would waive the tax.
Morrison is a Democrat from the Chicago suburb of Deerfield who says she represents many of Illinois' Olympic athletes. She says Olympic athletes proudly represent Illinois and the U.S. and "we should honor them for their commitment."
 Morrison says exempting Illinois' taxes on the prizes is "one small way to show our appreciation."
Olympians who win a gold medal also receive $25,000. Silver medalists win $15,000, while bronze medalists earn $10,000.
The legislation also applies to Para-Olympians.  It could be considered by the full Senate as early as Thursday.

Warrants forgiven this week for non-violent offenders

Thursday, 20 February 2014 09:34 Published in Local News
Anyone with a warrant for a nonviolent ordinance violation is getting a break in St. Louis city.  
Offenders can turn themselves in to the Municipal Court this week to receive a new court date on the spot instead of being booked into jail.  From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.this week, individuals who believe they have a warrant can go to the St. Louis City Municipal Court at 1520 Market Street to cancel warrants and get a new court date. The cost is $35 regardless of the number of warrants.
Warrant forgiveness is good only for City ordinance violations, including but not limited to truancy, nuisance, moving and non-moving violations. People with state charges or DUI/DWI charges are not eligible for warrant forgiveness. Other charges may have a reduced bond.
People can check whether they have a warrant out for their arrest by searching for their name, date of birth and zip code on the City Court's website.
