The suspended mayor of Ellisville will be the subject of a hearing in St. Louis County Court this afternoon (Thursday). Wednesday Mayor Adam Paul's attorney, Chet Pleban, spoke with KTRS's McGraw Millhaven.  

Pleban said his client is suing to stop the impeachment, which he called  collusion between city councilman, Matt Parillo and Ellisville city attorney, Paul Martin.  Pleban read emails on the air between the two that listed possible charges and laid out a plan to remove Mayor Paul from office. Pleban says Martin and Parillo took their plan to former city council woman Katie James three days before she formally presented the charges against the mayor as her own.

James tells McGraw Thursday morning she acted alone and only sought the advice of the city attorney and councilman Parillo. Katie James says, "I don't know why the city went farther with my charges, I'm not privy to that. Why they feel the relationship with the mayor has devolved that they feel they cannot work with him. I want the city just to work." "Did his actions rise to a level to overthrow a duly elected mayor of a town?" Katie James: And I don't have all the facts in that. Do I think he is a capable a mayor..no I do not." McGraw: "Again..should the vote of the people of Ellisville be overturned by the council?" James:"If he broke the law? Yes."

For months, James had claimed that Paul mistreated her when he tried to have police officers remove her from a meeting in May. When she learned of another incident where Paul had tried to remove a resident from a meeting in February. She tells McGraw that's when she decided to take action.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House committee is considering bill that would allow lottery winners to remain anonymous after claiming their prizes.

 

   Sponsoring Rep. Rochelle Walton Gray, of Black Jack, told the House Local Government Committee Thursday that winning the lottery can subject a person to hardship. Her measure would prevent the Missouri Lottery from releasing the names or addresses of prize winners without their written consent.

   Officials from the Missouri Lottery say revealing a winner's identity provides legitimacy to games and helps sell more tickets. The names of lottery winners are also subject to Missouri's Sunshine Law, making identity information available to open records request.

     Metro will be giving some passengers free rides under a federal class action settlement agreement.  The transit agency was sued over MetroLink credit and debit card receipts that violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act.  

     Under the law, merchants can print up to the last five digits of a customer's credit or debit card number or the card's expiration date on their receipt, but not both.  Between January 2010 and August 2011, Metro had been printing both.  

     The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that people who used credit or debit cards to buy tickets during the 20 month period can make claims by July 3 for free ride passes or tickets.  Those who still have their receipts could get $30 cash instead.

     Some customers of one local grocery chain are wondering why they are just now learning about a series of credit card fraud incidents.  

     In a statement, Schnuck's spokesperson Paul Simon said that the company had become aware on March 15 that some customers had noticed unauthorized charges on their card statements for credit cards they had used at Schnucks.  Complaints have be received from shoppers across the metro area.  

     Schnucks officials say they're working with police and a private outside forensic team to try to find the source of the compromise.  

     Police say the leak may not be with the grocer, but with a third-party vendor that processes transactions.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House members have approved a trio of measures that could reduce taxes for some businesses.

<br><br>

Representatives on Wednesday passed bills that would create new incentives for the construction of computer data centers and investors in high-tech, startup businesses. Both of those measures now go to the Senate.

<br><br>

   The House also gave initial approval Wednesday to a bill that would gradually reduce the state's corporate income tax rate from its current 6.25 percent to 4.25 percent by 2016. The bill also would make Missouri's individual income tax brackets subject to annual inflationary adjustments, potentially reducing future taxes for some people. Another provision seeks to increase Missouri's tax collections from Internet sales.

   All told, the measures could reduce Missouri's revenues by tens of millions of dollars annually.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Associated Press has learned that authorities are calling the death of Menard Correctional Center inmate Tuesday night "suspicious."

It is the third such death of a Menard inmate in less than two months.

Randolph County Coroner Randy Dudenbostel (DOO'-dihn-bahs-sul) told The Associated Press that the 35-year-old man was declared dead in his cell in the prison's segregation unit at 10:36 p.m. Tuesday. The man had a cellmate even though he was in a segregated cell.

Neither Dudenbostel nor Department of Corrections spokeswoman Stacey Solano (soh-LAH'-noh) would identify the man. Dudenbostel says an autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

Solano says the prison was locked down Wednesday during an investigation.

Tuesday's inmate death is the third suspicious death at Menard since Jan. 31
