|Kansas City Confederate Memorial to be Moved After VandalismKBIA / 23 h. 14 min. ago more|
Parks officials in Kansas City, Missouri, say an 83-year-old Confederate memorial will be removed after it was vandalized. The Missouri Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy asked Kansas City Parks and Recreation officials to remove the monument from its current location along of the city's main streets to a place of safety. That came after someone painted what appeared to be a red hammer and sickle on the "Loyal Women of the Old South" memorial late Friday or early Saturday. Parks officials said Saturday the monument would be removed soon, and on Sunday crews covered it with plywood boards to prevent further graffiti until it can be relocated. The memorial was erected in 1934 to recognize women who supported the Confederacy.

The American Astronomical Society's solar eclipse task force has put out a list of approved manufacturers of eclipse eyewear.

Attorneys for a Missouri man convicted of killing a former St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter 19 years ago are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the prisoner's execution scheduled for next week. Marcellus Williams is set to die by injection Tuesday at the state prison in Bonne Terre for fatally stabbing Lisha Gayle during a 1998 robbery at her home in University City. The Missouri Supreme Court on Tuesday turned down Williams' request to either appoint a special master to hear his case again or vacate the death sentence. His attorneys say new testing conducted in December showed that DNA found on the knife does not match Williams. A spokeswoman for Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley says the state remains confident in other evidence in the case.
|Explosive Device Tossed, Detonates Near Missouri Patrol Car KBIA / 3 d. 12 h. 35 min. ago more|
Authorities are investigating whether police were targeted when someone tossed an explosive device at a patrol car along a Missouri highway. No one was injured Thursday when the device detonated on the pavement behind a westbound police patrol vehicle along Missouri 58 in Raymore, a Kansas City suburb. Investigators say the device was thrown from an eastbound vehicle. John Ham is a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Ham says the device was "likely homemade" and could've caused "severe injury." He declined to provide further details. Ham says the concern is the unidentified suspect "targeted law enforcement." A $5,000 reward is available for information leading to an arrest and conviction. Ham says dashcam video isn't available because the patrol vehicle's lights and sirens weren't activated.
|Lawmaker who Made Trump Assassination Remark may Face Ouster KBIA / 3 d. 12 h. 35 min. ago more|
A Missouri lawmaker who temporarily posted a Facebook comment hoping for President Donald Trump's assassination could face an effort to remove her from office. Republican Gov. Eric Greitens and Lt. Gov. Mike Parson on Friday both said state senators should oust Democratic Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadal from office. Numerous top Democratic and Republican officials in Missouri have called upon Chappelle-Nadal to resign because of the Facebook comment she wrote and later deleted Thursday. But the lawmaker from the St. Louis area has said she won't step down. The Missouri Constitution says a lawmaker can be expelled upon a two-thirds vote of the elected members of a chamber. The Legislature is not currently in session, but it is scheduled to convene in mid-September to consider veto overrides.
|McCaskill, Roberts Discuss Protecting Nation's Food Supply KBIA / 3 d. 12 h. 35 min. ago more|
Two U.S. senators from Kansas and Missouri say an emphasis on protecting the nation's food supply has waned since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and it's time to make the issue a priority again. Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat from Missouri, and Sen Pat Roberts, a Kansas Republican, met Friday with government, education and private officials involved in ensuring the nation is prepared to protect food, agriculture and livestock from terrorism and infectious diseases. McCaskill and Roberts stressed that the nation's food supply is still the safest in the world and they were not reacting to any imminent threat. But Roberts, who leads the Senate Agriculture Committee, says the nation and media's focus often shifts to other problems and it's important to "ramp up" agriculture protection efforts again.
|Stephens College Sued for Gender Discrimination KBIA / 3 d. 12 h. 36 min. ago more|
A former dean at a Missouri women's college is suing the school for allegedly creating "a hostile work environment based on gender." The Columbia Missourian reports the lawsuit was filed Wednesday in state court by Carole Chabries, a former dean of graduate and continuing studies at Stephens College. She says she made a complaint about Vice President of Academic Affairs Leslie Willey, alleging Willey said "a woman might need to step back from her career to take care of her family" in response to time Chabries had spent away from campus. An investigation by the school showed no evidence of discrimination. The lawsuit also alleges Willey and President Dianne Lynch manipulate employees through intimidation. The college's Board of Trustees said Thursday that the lawsuit is full of "numerous false and inflammatory allegations." Chabries resigned in June, less than a year after joining the college.
