ST. LOUIS (AP) - Sen. Claire McCaskill has long been an advocate for victims of sexual assault in the military, so the Missouri Democrat is perplexed after being singled out in newspaper and Facebook ads calling her a roadblock to reforming the system.

Protect Our Defenders, a Washington-based advocacy group for military sexual assault victims, took aim at McCaskill in a half-page St. Louis Post-Dispatch ad over her opposition to an amendment proposed by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. Gillibrand's proposal would authorize military lawyers - rather than commanding officers - to decide which cases go to trial.

McCaskill favors reforms suggested by the House Armed Services military personnel subcommittee. She says she finds the ad puzzling given her history criticizing the military's handling of sexual assault cases.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Organizers of a Missouri River race say a paddler died in his sleep after dropping out of the competition.

The Kansas City Star reports that the man had competed in the first day of the Missouri American Water MR340 on Tuesday. Race director and founder Scott Mansker said Wednesday that the man was camping overnight in Miami, Mo., when he died.

The paddler's boat partner had decided not to continue after Tuesday's leg of the race. Mansker said the man and his ground crew decided to continue to follow the race after withdrawing from the competition in Lexington.

The race is a four-day, 340-mile trek across Missouri from Kansas City to St. Charles.

ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) - Police in the St. Louis suburb of St. Peters say a burglary suspect was so brazen he tiptoed into bedrooms and stole items as the residents slept.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 23-year-old Benjamin Lee Lillard is charged with several crimes related to burglaries that occurred Saturday and Monday. Both crimes happened while homeowners were sleeping.

A GPS app on a stolen iPhone from the Monday burglary led police to a home where police say Lillard was found hiding in the attic. Authorities say he was covered in insulation material when he surrendered.

Lillard was released from prison in February after serving 15 months for burglary and other crimes.

He is jailed on $50,000 cash-only bond.

New details show a possible history of violence between 76-year-old Ivan Mullenix and his 69-year-old wife Mary Ann, who is now charged with stabbing her former husband to death last week in their west St. Louis County mansion. According to police reports, Mary Ann alleged her husband choked her and threw her to the ground during a fight last summer. In the same report, Ivan Mullenix claimed his wife had struck him in the face with an 8-pound dumbbell. Neither side decided to press charges. In the report obtained by the Post-Dispatch, police noted that Mary Ann was acting irrationally that night, and they included a "caution code" about her use of alcohol. Mary Ann is currently free of $50,000 bail. She's been required to wear an alcohol monitoring bracelet.

   The manufacturer of the Plan B One Step morning-after contraceptive has been granted exclusive rights by the FDA to market their drug over-the-counter without age restrictions. The decision was released earlier this week.

   The Food and Drug Administration approved Teva Pharmaceuticals' Plan B One Step for over the counter sale...no prescription or proof of age required.  In its decision, the FDA granted a three year period during which Teva can sell its' single tablet product exclusively on pharmacy shelves, while generic drugs will still require a prescription for young women 16 and younger.

   Most metro St. Louis pharmacies carry Teva's Plan B, which is a two-pill dosage and some already have the Plan B One Step in the pharmacy. The FDA decision will now move that product on to the store shelves.

   The St. Louis County Library is looking for new leadership after the library director resigned without warning.  

   Many library staffers were stunned to learn by email Tuesday that St. Louis County Library Director Charles Pace had resigned.  The email from the president of the library board of trustees, Lynn Beckwith Junior, didn't say why Pace had stepped down.  

   Pace has been at the helm of the 20 branch library system for the past seven years.  He's credited with helping to persuade voters to approve the library's first tax-rate increase in almost 30 years.  But he was also fined by the Missouri Ethics Commission in March for failing to put the library's name on some materials promoting the tax increase.  

   Beckwith's email indicated that Pace's resignation is retroactive to July 12.

   Business owners in Grafton, Illinois expect the tourist trade to pick up after this Friday.  That's when the Grafton Ferry will start running again after being closed for the past three years.  The ferry spans the confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers between Missouri and Illinois.

   The city of Grafton bought the landings and spent $200,000 dredging the river to remove silt buildup.  The city is working on a federal grant to help cover the cost of maintaining the channel.  

   The 12 minute ferry ride from St. Charles to Grafton will cost $8 one way, $15 round trip.  The ferry will operate from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on weekdays and 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

   The city will celebrate the reopening with a public ribbon cutting ceremony at 11:00 a.m. Friday morning at the Grafton launch.
