Missouri ending some diesel fuel inspections

Wednesday, 12 February 2014 15:14 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri is curtailing inspections aimed at people who may illegally use farm diesel fuel in their over-the-road vehicles.
 
In response to concerns from lawmakers, acting Revenue Department Director John Mollenkamp said Wednesday that his agency would stop proactively looking for violations of the diesel fuel law and only respond to requests from law enforcement officials.
 
Missouri imposes a 17-cent tax on diesel fuel. But that tax is not charged on diesel used only for farming purposes. To distinguish between the two uses, farm diesel fuel is mixed with a dye.
 
The Revenue Department had been doing random inspections to see whether dyed fuel was being used in vehicles driven on highways.
 
Republican Sen. Mike Parson, a former Polk County sheriff, has called the program an unreasonable search of private property.

Rams announce Gregg Williams as Defensive Coordinator

Wednesday, 12 February 2014 14:20 Published in Sports

It's official, the St. Louis Rams announced Gregg Williams as the team's new defensive coordinator.

 

Head coach Jeff Fisher and Williams have six seasons of experience working together. Fisher hired Williams to be his defensive coordinator in 2012. But, Williams was implicated in the Saints bounty-gate controversy and he was suspended by the NFL.

 

Williams was re-instated last year and served as a consultant for the Tennessee Titans. The two will be reunited again with the Rams for the 2014 season.

Missouri woman facing rare, bigamy charge

Wednesday, 12 February 2014 13:53 Published in Local News
PARK HILLS, Mo. (AP) - A 28-year-old woman is facing a rare criminal charge in Missouri - bigamy.
 
The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills, Mo., reports that Michelle Sykes was charged with the misdemeanor on Tuesday. Authorities say bigamy charges are rarely filed because, while people sometimes marry more than one spouse, it is not often reported.
 
St. Francois County prosecutors say Sykes was married in the county in 2010. In December, her husband told deputies he had recently discovered that she had married in 2008 in St. Clair County, Ill., and was apparently still married to that man, too.
 
St. Francois County prosecutor Jerrod Mahurin says the 2008 marriage would nullify the union made in Missouri.
