Missouri's 8th district up for grabs next year

Tuesday, 08 October 2013 13:16 Published in Local News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A Jefferson County Democrat says she plans to seek her party's nomination in Missouri's 8th Congressional District election next year.

The Southeast Missourian reports that DeSoto resident Barbara Stocker will formally announce her candidacy on Wednesday morning at the Cape Girardeau federal courthouse. Stocker is a retired biochemist who worked at the former Ralston Purina Company as well as the Monsanto Company in the St. Louis area. She calls herself a "kind-hearted old lady who wants to make government work again."

Salem Republican Rep. Jason Smith won a special election in June and plans to seek re-election in 2014.  He is finishing the unexpired term of Jo Ann Emerson, who resigned.

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder is also considering the congressional race after unsuccessfully seeking to replace Emerson.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former procurement officer for the Boeing Co. based in Missouri is accused of providing inside information to help a Washington state subcontractor win more than $2 million in aircraft parts orders.

An indictment filed in federal court in St. Louis charges Deon E. Anderson, of the St. Louis area, and Jeffrey Lavelle, of Mukilteo, Wash., with mail fraud and wire fraud. Lavelle owned and operated J.L. Manufacturing, a machine shop in Everett, Wash.

The indictment says Anderson gave J.L. Manufacturing and Lavelle non-public competitor bid and historical price information for Boeing military aircraft order requests for quotes.

It says Lavelle used the information to submit about nine different bids on behalf of his company to Boeing. The indictment says that in return Lavelle paid cash to Anderson.

The indictment made public Monday also charges Robert "Bobby" Diaz Jr., of Alta Loma, Calif., and William P. Boozer, of Hacienda Heights, Calif.

A call left with Lavelle at J.L. Manufacturing Tuesday morning was not immediately returned.

 

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Southwestern Illinois authorities say a 28-year-old man stabbed two people during a weekend home invasion in what may be a case of mistaken identity.

Madison County prosecutors charged Grant Connor of Bridgeview with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and home invasion.

State's Attorney Tom Gibbons says Connor knocked on a Glen Carbon home's door claiming to have a disabled car. Then he charged, stabbing a 35-year-old man who offered to let him use the telephone.

That victim managed to grab a knife and stabbed Connor in the throat while a 33-year-old woman tried to intervene before also being stabbed.

The victims were released from a hospital. Investigators say Connor may have been searching for someone else with a similar name.

Court records don't show whether Connor has an attorney
