JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Some Missouri lawmakers want the state to open an economic development office in Israel. A spending plan embraced by a Senate committee would insert $200,000 into the next state budget to open an office in Israel.
   
The Senate and House have each passed bills that would require the Department of Economic Development to establish an office in Israel.  The office would be focused on developing partnerships between Missouri and Israeli businesses in agriculture, biotechnology and other emerging fields.
   
Missouri already has economic development offices in Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.
 

Body Found In West County Pond Identified

Tuesday, 15 April 2014 10:14 Published in Local News
BALLWIN, Mo. (AP) - Authorities have identified the woman whose body was found floating in a pond near a west St. Louis County apartment complex.
 
   The victim was 71-year-old Manorma Dua, who lived nearby. An autopsy indicated that drowning was the likely cause of death, and police say there were no signs of foul play. St. Louis County detectives suspect suicide.
 
   A passerby crossing a walking bridge Monday morning saw the body in the pond. The apartment complex is in an unincorporated area, near the town of Ballwin.
 
 ST. LOUIS (AP) - Men who prowl the streets of St. Louis for prostitutes can expect a brightly colored postcard in the mail - from police.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that in an effort to curb prostitution, police are targeting, and perhaps humiliating, the "johns" who use the services. The postcards mailed to the homes of those charged with trying to pick up prostitutes will offer a reminder about spreading sexually transmitted diseases, along with listing the court date.
 
In addition, police say they plan to routinely provide local news media with mug shots of those charged with prostitution crimes to dissuade them from trying it again.
 
Solicitation is an ordinance violation carrying a penalty often no harsher than a fine. Police hope the postcards are an attention-grabber that deters johns. They are rolling out the program this week in two neighborhoods where residents have complained of prostitution.
