Firefighter's Widow Sues Missouri Board of Curators

Friday, 04 April 2014 07:36 Published in Local News
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The widow of a firefighter who was killed in February after a walkway collapsed at a University of Missouri apartment complex has filed a wrongful death suit against the school's board of curators.
 
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports Leigh Britt and her daughter are plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed Monday. Britt says the curators are responsible for her husband's death because they failed to properly maintain or construct the University Village Apartments.
 
Bruce Britt was killed Feb. 22 after responding to reports of a possible building collapse at the apartment complex. He was crushed when part of a concrete walkway collapsed while he was trying to get residents out of the building.
A spokesman for the University of Missouri system says the university doesn't comment on active litigation.
 
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers have passed a resolution encouraging President Barack Obama's administration to approve a proposed oil pipeline route through the middle of the United States.
 
The Senate approved the measure endorsing the Keystone XL pipeline with a 24-5 vote on Thursday. The same resolution passed the House earlier this year.
 
Obama told a group of governors at a White House meeting in February that he expects to make a decision on the project's future in a couple of months.
 
The Missouri resolution also encourages the U.S. to drill for oil off the northern coast of Alaska.
Missouri's two U.S. senators and Gov. Jay Nixon have also come out in favor of the Keystone pipeline project.
 

Governor Nixon declares a state of emergency

Thursday, 03 April 2014 10:42 Published in Local News

Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency in Missouri on Thursday as a widespread severe weather system continued to move across the state, bringing heavy rain, hail, high winds, flooding and flash flooding, and at least one reported tornado.

The Governor ordered activation of the State Emergency Operations Center, which has been closely monitoring the storm system.  The team includes officials from the Missouri Department of Public Safety, the State Emergency Management Agency, the Missouri National Guard and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.  

Gov. Nixon has also activated the Missouri State Emergency Operations Plan, which allows state agencies to coordinate directly with local jurisdictions to provide emergency services.
