JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Four new inductees into the Hall of Famous Missourians include a physician credited as the father of osteopathic medicine and a science fiction writer.

The hall is a collection of bronze busts that generally has honored people chosen by the House speaker. However, half the new inductees this time were chosen through a public nomination and vote.

The four inductees were identified to The Associated Press by House Speaker Tim Jones before they were publicly announced.

The people's top choice was Andrew Taylor Still, who founded the American School of Osteopathy in Kirksville. Science fiction writer Robert Heinlein also won public support.

For his part, House Speaker Tim Jones chose suffragist Virginia Minor and the late conservative politician Mel Hancock.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police say a reported "knockout game" attack in the city has proven to be false.

The Post-Dispatch reports that investigators plan to seek criminal charges of falsifying a police report against the woman who made the report and her boyfriend.

The woman's claim that she was attacked randomly outside a St. Louis bar last month drew national attention. Police now believe she was injured by the boyfriend and they made up the story to cover for her injuries.

The so-called "knockout game" involves random attacks on innocent people. Some cases have been reported in St. Louis, including a fatal attack of a Vietnamese immigrant in 2011.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two Boeing employees who are Missouri lawmakers took different approaches when the House considered a package of incentives for their company to assemble a new passenger jet in the St. Louis area.

Rep. Doug Funderburk, who is a longtime Boeing electrician, passionately urged colleagues to approve the legislation Friday. He voted "yes" as the bill passed the House 127-20.

Funderburk told The Associated Press he didn't think it posed a conflict of interest because he plans to retire within a few years. He said Boeing officials had no conversations with him about the legislation.

Representative Clem Smith, who is a machinist on the Boeing F-18, abstained from voting. Smith told The AP the bill presented a conflict of interest, because it could mean more money in his pocket.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's low-income housing commission has delayed the approval of millions of dollars of tax credits - apparently as an outgrowth of the negotiations over incentives for Boeing Co.

   The Missouri Housing Development Commission voted 6-1 Friday to postpone a decision on about $14 million in tax credits until next March.

   Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, who is a member of the commission, said Gov. Jay Nixon's chief of staff requested the delay.

 

   Kinder said Nixon's staffer told the commission the governor had agreed with several senators to slow down the issuance of other tax credits in exchange for them not blocking legislation authorizing tax breaks for Boeing to assemble planes in St. Louis.

   The housing tax-credit vote came shortly after the House gave final approval Friday to the Boeing incentives.

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Classes at Southern Illinois University are canceled because of a storm that's left a slick layer of ice under several inches of snow, with more wintry weather on the way.

WSIU Radio reports that some services at the 18,000-student Carbondale university were to remain open Friday, including dining services for students, the Morris Library and the student recreation center.

University administrators called off Friday's classes because of questionable driving conditions.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers have given final approval to incentives for Boeing to assemble to a new passenger airplane in the St. Louis area.

The House voted 127-20-2 Friday for the legislation that authorizes as much as $1.7 billion of incentives over more than two decades for Boeing to produce the 777X jetliner. The legislation passed the Senate on Wednesday by a 23-8 vote.

Now it's up to Boeing to decide whether Missouri's offer is good enough.

Boeing sought proposals from more than a dozen locations after a machinists union in Washington state rejected a proposed contract last month.

Gov. Jay Nixon called a special session in order to increase the amount of incentives Missouri could offer. Missouri's proposed incentives are linked to the number of jobs created.
