 SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Some Missouri State University students who worked for more than a year on a solar project are disappointed that school officials have stalled the project.
The students spent 18 months devising a way to put solar panels on top of Meyer Library on the Springfield campus. It was approved by student groups and was to be paid for with funds from a $2 per semester student sustainability fee.
The Springfield News-Leader reports the school's Planning, Design and Construction Department stopped the project by making changes that greatly increased the cost. The main disagreement was over how to install the panels to the library's roof.
One of the students, Shane Franklin, plans to meet with the university's architect in February to see if the project can revived.

The University of Missouri is facing considerable scrutiny today after an ESPN report on it's program Outside the Lines alleged that a former Mizzou swimmer was sexually assaulted by a Tiger football player, with no investigation by the University. 
University System President Tom Wolfe has requested an independent investigation into the school's handling of the case, in which swimmer Sasha Menu Courey claimed she was assaulted by a football player in 2010.   According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, university officials say they knew nothing of the alleged sexual attack until late 2012.
But the ESPN report details that Menu Courey told her campus therapist about the alleged assault in December 2010 and alerted a nurse at the on-campus psychiatric center about the attack in March 2011. According to Title IX law, once a school knows, or reasonably should know of possible sexual violence it must take immediate action to investigate.  Menu-Courey committed suicide in June 2011,

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A fire truck was badly damaged after its aerial ladder touched a high-voltage transmission line at a north Columbia fire station.
Columbia Battalion Chief John Metz says the station's crew was conducting a routine maintenance check on the 2009 fire engine early Sunday when the ladder touched the line.
No one was injured but the fire engine was severely damaged.  Metz says the damage will not affect fire service to the city.
Firefighters from other stations arrived to help prevent the blaze from damaging the fire station.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the incident caused a brief power outage for between 500 and 1,000 customers.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - After two weeks of committee hearings, Missouri lawmakers are poised to begin debating legislation on the House and Senate floor.
Senate President Pro Tem Tom Dempsey says the chamber this week will take up a bill barring temporary leaders of state agencies from remaining in office for more than 120 days.
Dempsey says the Senate could also consider legislation that would implement performance-based funding for Missouri's four-year public universities. The funding scheme would only apply in years when higher education receives a budget increase from state government.
In the House, the first bill on the debate calendar would allow people with disabilities or on active military duty to appoint someone to represent them when they file for elective office.
