Judge convicts Missouri shooting plot suspect

Friday, 31 January 2014 16:41 Published in Local News
BOLIVAR, Mo. (AP) - A southwest Missouri man accused of plotting shooting attacks at a movie theater and a Walmart has been found guilty.
 
Polk County Prosecutor Ken Ashlock said Blaec Lammers was convicted Friday of first-degree assault and armed criminal action. Judge William Roberts on Thursday threw out a charge of making a terrorist threat. Lammers agreed to allow a judge to hear the case without a jury present.
 
Ashlock said Lammers told authorities he originally planned to open fire on the opening-night crowd for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" at a Bolivar theater in November 2012. He then opted for the Walmart because he could get more ammunition there.
 
Lammers was arrested after his mother told police she feared he was planning an attack.
 
Sentencing is scheduled for March 20.

Missouri union hires former GOP speaker as lobbyist

Friday, 31 January 2014 16:40 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - One of Missouri's largest labor organizations has hired a former Republican House Speaker as a lobbyist.
 
The Missouri AFL-CIO hired Steve Tilley this week as the labor organization prepares to combat "right to work" measures this year. The legislation would prohibit labor contracts from requiring that all employees pay union fees.
 
Tilley was first elected to the House in 2004 and became Speaker in 2011. While in that office he shied away from "right to work" and said it was not part of his agenda.
 
He left the House in 2012 to become a lobbyist when term limits barred him from seeking re-election.
 
"Right to work" is a top priority this year of House Speaker Tim Jones, Tilley's successor. Jones says Missouri needs the policy to compete for jobs.
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - University of Missouri athletics director Mike Alden says the school's initial response to news reports of a former swimmer's suicide could have been handled better.
 
Alden told reporters in interviews late Thursday that he expects Missouri to learn from Sasha Menu Courey's death and use it to bolster its student mental health services rather than "trying to defend" its actions.
 
The interviews mark Alden's first public comments on the case. Missouri curators voted Wednesday to approve an independent legal investigation.
 
Menu Courey killed herself in June 2011 in a Boston psychiatric hospital soon after being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and two months after an earlier suicide attempt while still at Missouri. Her reports of a 2010 rape by several school football players are now under investigation by Columbia police.
