A St. Louis County police lieutenant has been fired, nearly six months after accusations that he ordered officers to target black people. Patrick Hayes was fired on Monday following a six-month internal investigation that began with an anonymous tip. According to the anonymous letter sent last December, Hayes ordered his officers to arrest  black people near the South County Center and a Wal-Mart store in the area. Hayes' attorney has vowed to appeal.

  JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers are pressing to renew a program that provides Medicaid coverage to disabled workers who otherwise would earn too much to qualify for government-funded health care.

   The Ticket to Work program covers more than 1,300 Missouri residents but is due to expire this August. Legislation endorsed Monday by a Senate committee would renew the program through August 2019.

  The program covers disabled workers with incomes up to three times the federal poverty level, or more than $34,000 for an individual. It requires them to pay a premium on a sliding scale that tops out at 6 percent of their income.

   To go to the governor, the bill still must be passed in the same form by the Senate and House before the session ends Friday.

The matriarch of the Schnucks' grocery store chain has died. 88-year-old Doris Schnuck died Saturday at her home in Clayton. A company spokeswoman says she had been in failing health.

Doris and Donald Schnuck helped turn a corner grocery in north St. Louis into the area’s leading supermarket chain.  He died in 1991 at age 69. They have six children who run the supermarket chain. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Today, Schnucks operates 100 stores in five states — Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa — with 14,800 employees.

Mrs. Schnuck supported the St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the Children’s Tumor Foundation, the St. Louis Zoo and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. The Children’s Garden at the Missouri Botanical Garden is named for her.

Craig and Terry Schnuck live in Clayton. Scott, Todd, Mark and Nancy live in Ladue. Other survivors include 20 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Senate Democrats blocked a vote on legislation that would change which projects fall under the state's wage requirement for public construction projects.

   Under current law, "maintenance" work is not subject to the state's prevailing wage rules. But a 2011 Missouri Supreme Court decision expanded the definition of "construction," causing more projects to be subject to the wage requirement.

   The bill that stalled Monday would define maintenance as routine, recurring and usual work that cannot exceed $75,000. Any work that does not meet those requirements would be subject to the prevailing wage. Democrats argue the measure would allow government entities to do construction projects without paying the wage requirement.

   Prevailing wage is the rate paid for a give trade on public construction projects.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers have sent Gov. Jay Nixon a bill that would require public employee unions to get annual consent from their members to deduct fees automatically from paychecks.

The House passed the measure 85-69 on Monday. It passed the Senate earlier this year.

The legislation would also require public employee unions to get annual consent from members to spend a portion of their fees on political activities.

Organizations representing "first responders," such as police and firefighters, would be exempted from the measure.

Supporters say the measure gives public workers more control over how their union fees spent. Opponents argue it makes it harder for unions to participate in the political process.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A 21-year-old St. Louis County woman faces sentencing in July after pleading guilty to child endangerment for placing her newborn baby under a tree in a stranger's yard.

KSDK-TV reports that Kaitlin Norton pleaded guilty in St. Louis Circuit Court. She was arrested last year, days after the child was found outside of a home in Ellisville.

A woman looked out her window and saw a bundle in a blanket, thinking at first it might be a litter of puppies. It was Norton's child. Norton had given birth to the baby in the basement of her boyfriend's home.

Norton turned herself in after she was treated at a hospital following the birth.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Eleven Illinois counties will get some federal money to recover from the flooding in the state that occurred in late April and early May.

In a news release, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency announced the White House has made federal funds available to supplement state and local recovery efforts. The assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses and other programs that help businesses and home owners.

The federal aid will be shared by Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Fulton, Grundy, Kane, Kendall, Lake, LaSalle, McHenry and Will counties. And other areas might also receive assistance if the state requests it and further damage assessments reveal it is warranted.
