(Joplin, MO) -- Joplin officials say some safe rooms to protect residents during storms are expected to open in the next few weeks.
Joplin school officials say final inspections will be conducted within a few days at community safe rooms at Cecil Floyd, Stapleton, McKinley and Eastmorland elementary schools and at Junge Field.
The district's director of construction, Mike Johnson, says the remaining safe rooms - at Jefferson, Royal Heights, Kelsey Norman, Duenweg, Columbia and West Central elementary schools and at Joplin High School are expected to be ready by the fall.
The Joplin Globe reports all the safe rooms will be open to residents who live within a 5-minute walk and a half-mile drive. They have an average capacity of 1,000 to 1,500 people.
WASHINGTON, Mo. (AP) - An investigation continues after an eastern Missouri deputy shot and killed a dog.
The Washington Missourian reports that Franklin County deputies went to a home on Monday to serve a search warrant. Sheriff Gary Toelke says they had been to the home many times before for various crimes.
Deputies had a search warrant, and when no one answered the door, they tried to enter through a window. Toelke says an aggressive dog charged at the deputy, who sprayed the animal with pepper spray.
A woman inside the home came forward and was told to secure the dog. Instead, the dog allegedly charged at one of the deputies, who fired a shot that killed the animal.
CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - New students at Southern Illinois University won't be paying more for tuition this fall.
WSIU Radio reports the university system's trustees on Thursday opted against raising the tuition by 3 percent for newcomers to the Carbondale campus and 5 percent for those in Edwardsville.
The board's chairman, Randal Thomas, says there was no traction for boosting tuition costs, especially as the university system takes on a new president at the first of next month.
Trustees will consider proposals for fee increases at their meeting in May.
