Sheriff department office manager facing theft charges

Wednesday, 31 July 2013 14:19 Published in Local News

NEW MADRID, Mo. (AP) - The former office manager for the New Madrid County Sheriff's Department in southeast Missouri is facing theft charges.

Authorities on Wednesday announced that Deborah L. Cowan is accused of stealing property or service worth more than $25,000. Police have not detailed what was allegedly stolen.

Cowan is free on bond and due in court for a hearing on Aug. 8. She was office manager for the sheriff's department for 20 years.

The charges follow an investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol at the request of Sheriff Terry Stevens.

A Hiring Our Heroes job fair is scheduled for next week in downtown St. Louis.

At least 85 employers are expected to attend the fair. They will be looking to hire veterans and military spouses of all ranks, levels, and experience. The fair take place Tuesday, Aug. 6 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at America's Center Convention Complex. Job seekers should register in advance for free at hoh.greatjob.net, but walk-ins are allowed. Veterans must show proof of service.

Since its creation in March 2011, Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 570 job fairs which hired more than 20,200 veterans and military spouses.

 

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois' 177 lawmakers won't be getting paid as scheduled Thursday unless a court intervenes.

The pay stoppage is Gov. Pat Quinn's punishment for inaction on pension reform. Legislative leaders are suing Quinn over the move. They're asking a Cook County judge to issue an emergency injunction.

Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka says her office can't issue the checks because the salaries were in a budget bill. The governor did not eliminate his own salary, but asked for the comptroller to withhold his check. Topinka's office says he can restart his pay any time.

Members of the bipartisan pension committee say they are several weeks away from presenting a plan. Committee members say they are waiting on savings estimates as they prepare a proposal touted by several of the state's university presidents.
