FORT OSAGE, Mo. (AP) - A 47-year-old assistant Fort Osage fire chief has died in crash on his way to a fire in rural Jackson County.

 

The Kansas City Star reports that Harold Hollingsworth, a 16-year veteran with Fort Osage, was driving to a fire during a severe thunderstorm Sunday night when his fire department SUV slid off the road and hit a tree.

 

Todd Farley, an assistant fire chief with the Central Jackson County Fire Protection District, say it's the first time a Fort Osage firefighter has died in the line of duty.

 

Fort Osage is a town of about 7,000 about 30 miles east of Kansas City. The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating.

 

Funeral arrangements were pending Monday.

COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - An Italian greyhound that spent eight months on the lam is back in his southwestern Illinois home after being returned from where he turned up more than 900 miles away.

 

   Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis (http://bit.ly/Y9rhBc) reports 5-year-old Dauz went missing from the Dausman family's fenced Collinsville yard in July of last year, only to turn up last month at an animal shelter in Fairfax, Va.

 

   Alicia Dausman believes Dauz was stolen by a friend's family member who temporarily was living with them.

 

   Dauz was reunited after the Virginia shelter scanned the digital identification chip implanted in the dog's neck and notified the family.

 

   Dausman says the pet is thinner, lighter in color and barks raspier, but appears happy to be home.

LONDON (AP) - Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, whose conservative ideas made an enduring impact on Britain, has died. She was 87.

 

   Her former spokesman says Thatcher died this morning of a stroke.

 

   Thatcher, the country's first female prime minister, re-made Britain's economic landscape after coming into office in 1979 with a free-market philosophy and the goal of privatizing state industries. And she would wage some hard-nosed battles with the country's labor unions.

 

   Her influence was felt long after she left office in 1990. Tony Blair, whose Labor Party languished in opposition as the Conservative Thatcher held power for more than a decade, ended up adopting many of her views.

 

   Thatcher's forceful personality and hard-driving style earned her the nickname of the "Iron Lady." It was a term that was reinforced when she led Britain into war against Argentina in 1982 after the Argentines invaded the Falkland Islands. She forced them to retreat.

 

   In 1984, she escaped a brush with terrorism. An I-R-A bomb exploded in a hotel hosting the annual conference of the Conservative Party. It narrowly missed Thatcher, but killed five others.

 

   The badly-divided Conservatives eventually pushed her from power in 1990, and the party has struggled since then to regain its footing.

 

   In her later years, she grew frail after a series of small strokes, and gave up most public speaking on the advice of her doctors.

GLADSTONE, Mo. (AP) - An Amber alert is out for a 5-year-old girl who was taken from her father's home in a Kansas City suburb.

Gladstone police believe Lili Justine High was taken by her mother's friend, Tammi J. Lampkins, also known as Tammi J. Kelly.

Lili's father told police Lampkins stopped at his home Sunday evening. He says when he was briefly out of the room, Lampkins left with the girl.

Lampkins was driving a 1996 green four-door Mazda 626 with Missouri license plate SJ9JOU. It is extensively damaged on the passenger side.

Lili was wearing gray and red spandex pants, a yellow T-shirt and no shoes. She is missing her four front teeth.

Lampkins is 5 feet 4 inches tall, 116 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.
