Monday, 30 December 2013 03:57 Published in Local News
   Two people are dead and five others injured after a series of shootings in North St. Louis Sunday afternoon.
   St. Louis Police say 32 year old Robert Parker and two other people had been sitting in car in the 4000 block of Peck Avenue around 1:45 p.m., when someone in a dark sedan pulled alongside and began shooting.  Parker was killed.  A 24 year old man is in critical and unstable condition with a gunshot wounds to the head and back.  A 24 year old woman was grazed by a bullet.  
   Police say a stray bullet struck 51 year old Clara Walker inside her apartment.  She was also killed.   
   About 15 minutes later, one person was wounded in second shooting at Interstate 70 and Kingshighway.
   Moments later, a third shooting injured two in the 5300 block of North Euclid.  
   Police say they don't believe the incidents are related, but are still investigating all three.

Tax cuts on tap again for Missouri legislators

Monday, 30 December 2013 03:36 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers plan to make another attempt at cutting income taxes during their 2014 session.
   Democratic Governor Jay Nixon vetoed an income tax cut bill passed earlier this year, and majority party Republicans were unable to override it.
   House and Senate leaders say an income tax cut will be an early priority when lawmakers convene January 8th.
   Representative T.J. Berry, who sponsored the vetoed bill, says next year's version will leave out some of the provisions to which Nixon objected. One of those dropped sections would have automatically cut state income tax rates even further if Congress enacted a law making it easier for states to collect taxes on sales made over the Internet.
   Bill sponsor Senator Will Kraus says lawmakers want to simplify the legislation and lower its cost.
 
   HONOLULU (AP) — The Obama administration says its rehabilitated health insurance website has seen a December surge in customer sign-ups, pushing enrollment past the 1 million mark.
   Independent experts say that should put total enrollment in the new private insurance plans offered on both federal and state-run markets at about 2 million people through the end of the year.
   That would be about two-thirds of the administration's original goal of signing up 3.3 million by Dec. 31, and would represent a significant improvement given the technical problems that crippled the federal market during much of the fall. The overall goal remains to enroll 7 million people by March 31.
