Governor Nixon appoints new CVC chairman

Saturday, 21 September 2013 08:49 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Governor Jay Nixon has appointed a St. Louis County attorney to be the new chairman of the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission.

Nixon on Friday appointed Andrew Leonard. He replaces Robert O'Loughlin, who resigned Thursday after 35 years on the board, including five as chairman.

The CVC promotes the St. Louis region as a convention and meeting site and a tourism destination.

Leonard is a partner in the Chesterfield law firm of McCarthy, Leonard, Kaemmerer. His term on the CVC expires September 19th, 2015.

The commission consists of 11 members, five of whom are appointed by the St. Louis mayor, five by the St. Louis County executive, and one by the governor. The governor's appointee serves as chairman.

President Obama decries efforts to kill health care law

Saturday, 21 September 2013 08:46 Published in Local News

CLAYCOMO, Mo. (AP) — President Barack Obama is railing against attempts by, quote, a "faction of the far right" to undermine his health care law.

Obama tells an audience near Kansas City, Missouri quote, "They're focused on trying to mess with me. They're not focused on you."

Obama spoke shortly after the Republican-controlled House voted cut spending for the health care law, as part of a measure to extend current spending into December.

Obama says failure to raise the debt ceiling would send the economy into a tailspin.

Cyberbullying conference coming to St. Louis next week

Friday, 20 September 2013 15:17 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Representatives from more than two dozen law enforcement agencies from Missouri and Illinois will gather in St. Louis next week for a workshop on cyberbullying.

The organization Child Safety Day is hosting the workshop on Wednesday. It will be led by Tina Meier, whose 13-year-old daughter, Megan, committed suicide in 2006 after being the victim of cyberbullying.

Organizers say the workshop will include police officers conducting a mock re-investigation of the Megan Meier case using current state laws instituted after Megan's death.

Organizers of the workshop say bullying on the Internet can play a role not only in suicides but in school shootings and other tragedies.
