   The University of Missouri will hire outside, independent legal counsel to investigate the school's handling of matters related to former Mizzou student Sasha Menu Courey.  The swimmer committed suicide in 2011, 16 months after claiming she'd been raped by members of the Missouri football team.  

   The University of Missouri Board of Curators voted Wednesday night to approve the recommendation of University President Tim Wolfe, to hire an independent investigator.  The board has not yet chosen a firm, but stipulated that it must have independence from the university.  

   The board wants the inquiry completed in time for the board's next meeting in Rolla on April 11th.

Police officers assigned to Dooley being investigated

Wednesday, 29 January 2014 04:25 Published in Local News

   Two police officers assigned to security detail for St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley can no longer access the criminal justice database.  

   Police Chief Tim Fitch tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that an internal affairs investigation is under way to determine whether the officers' violated any laws when they ran the names of police board candidates, including Dave Spence.  Fitch says it was an announcement in October by Dooley chief of staff, Garry Earls, that prompted the investigation.  Earls had told the County Council that Spence's criminal background check had come back clean.  

   A spokeswoman for Dooley told the paper the county executive was unaware of the investigation and had not himself requested any such checks by the officers.

Nixon says MO to pay off unemployment debt early

Wednesday, 29 January 2014 03:42 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon says Missouri employers could save $186 million in federal taxes after a revised projection indicates money borrowed to pay jobless benefits will be repaid early.
   The state Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund became insolvent in February 2009 during the economic downturn. Missouri borrowed from the federal government, and businesses pay a surcharge to repay the debt.
   Nixon said Tuesday the U.S. Department of Labor revised its projection for when Missouri would pay off the loan. Now, the state is expected to repay it in November instead of May 2015. Nixon says that would reduce business's federal unemployment tax by $84 per worker.
