Command change coming at Whiteman Air Force base

Monday, 17 February 2014 04:24 Published in Local News
   KNOB NOSTER, Mo. (AP) - A leadership change is in the works at Whiteman Air Force Base.
   Brig. Gen. Glen Vanherck is to take command of the 509th Bomb Wing during a ceremony Friday at the west-central Missouri base. He will be succeeding Brig. Gen. Thomas Bussiere, who has led Bomb Wing since June 2012.
   Vanherck currently is the commander of the 7th Bomb Wing at Dyess Air Force Base in Texas. He grew up in Bismarck, Mo., and is a graduate of the University of Missouri.
   The 509th Bomb Wing is the Air Force's only B-2 Spirit stealth bomber unit. The B-2 stealth bombers can fly from Missouri to targets anywhere around the world.
 
   Questions are being raised over the way a Sunday morning fire was handled at the Bridgeton Landfill.  The smokey surface fire broke out in the southwest corner of the dump after a mechanical failure allowed gas to build up.  
   Technicians who monitor the facility are supposed to call first responders when there's an emergency.  Pattonville Assistant Fire Chief Matt Lavanchy tells Fox 2 News it was concerned residents who called 911 Sunday morning, not landfill monitors. "I don't know what happened or what their thought process is," Lavanchy said.  "I can only tell you we were not notified the way we should have been."
   Landfill technicians were able to put the fire out fairly quickly and no evacuations were ordered.
   Residents concerned about their safety also called their state representative, Bill Otto Sunday morning.  He tells Fox 2 News that the way the landfill is being handled isn't fair to the people who live nearby.  "They deserve the right to live in their home comfortably and safely, and know that every morning, they don't have to look out the window to see if something's going on," Otto said.
   The landfill owners released a statement Sunday that said in part they plan to "conduct an after-action review of the entire incident to include notification of and coordination with first responders."
 

Powerball jackpot to near record heights, again

Monday, 17 February 2014 01:42 Published in Local News

   Another big Powerball jackpot is up for grabs this week.  

   Lottery officials said no one matched all six numbers for Saturday's $330.8 million drawing. So the prize for Wednesday's drawing is expected to be the fourth-biggest Powerball jackpot and sixth-highest lottery prize of all time.  The estimated jackpot: at least $400 million.  That's just over $227 million for a single winner who opts for a lump sum.  

   Powerball jackpots have set several new records since January 2012, when ticket prices rose to $2 and starting prizes were raised to $40 million.  

   This pot has been growing since December.
