Audit raises questions about contaminated site cleanup

Thursday, 10 April 2014 13:12 Published in Local News

   A new audit is raising concerns about a Missouri program that provides tax incentives for developers to clean up contaminated old business sites.  

   The state has authorized more than $185 million in Brownfield Remediation Tax Credits for 115 projects between the 2003 and 2013 fiscal years. About 80 percent of those projects were in the St. Louis area.  

   State Auditor Tom Schweich released a report Thursday giving the program a "poor" rating.  The audit cited weaknesses in oversight, saying the Department of Economic Development has failed to hold down costs and has allowed conflicts of interest.  

   In a written response attached to the audit, DED officials say they've worked to keep costs low and in March published newly proposed rules for the program.

Ex-Mizzou player seeks protection from teammate

Thursday, 10 April 2014 12:28 Published in Local News
   COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A former Missouri basketball player is seeking a protection order against Zach Price, who remains suspended from the team after being arrested twice for allegedly assaulting his roommate and a woman.
   The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Earnest Ross filed the petition in Boone County Circuit Court on April 2.  Price was arrested twice the next day after reportedly first ramming his car into another vehicle and then in a later encounter with Ross and the woman. Police say he hit his male roommate in the face then pushed the woman to the ground.
   The restraining order request identifies Ross as the roommate and his girlfriend as the other victim. Price sat out last season after transferring from Louisville. No charges have been filed in the case.
