FENTON, Mo. (AP) - A 77-year-old woman is dead after falling from the third floor of a suburban St. Louis retirement home.

The accident happened Thursday afternoon at Lakeview Park Independent Senior Living community near Fenton. Authorities told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Shirley Neumann apparently lost her balance and fell from a third-floor balcony.

A spokesman for the company that operates Lakeview says in a statement that the company is working with authorities to determine how the woman fell.

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's Republican House leader wants a legislative hearing on allegations of a hostile workplace in parts of Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon's administration.

House Speaker Tim Jones said Friday that he has asked the House Government Oversight and Accountability Committee to convene a hearing on the issue. That comes after former employees in the departments of agriculture and labor recently went public with assertions of intimidation and discrimination by former department directors.

Nixon spokesman Scott Holste said Friday that the administration tries to foster a workforce that is "professional in demeanor and inclusive in its composition."

Republican House member Jay Barnes, of Jefferson City, is chairman of the oversight committee. He says the hearing will focus on whether Nixon's office is diligently vetting applicants before making appointments to key positions.

 

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A temporary order barring a return to domestic horse slaughtering has expired. And an attorney for plants in New Mexico and Missouri says they are preparing to open.

Blair Dunn, who represents Valley Meat Co. in Roswell, N.M., and Rains Natural Meats of Gallatin, Mo., says a temporary restraining order in a lawsuit from animal protection groups trying to block the plants from opening expired Thursday night without a ruling from a federal judge in Albuquerque.

Dunn says the groups suing the Department of Agriculture over its permitting procedures are expected to seek an extension of the restraining order, but that he will fight it.

Dunn says the Missouri plant could be up and running on Monday. The Roswell plant is also preparing to open. An Iowa plant that had also planned to slaughter horses has converted to beef because of the litigation.
