The Ellisville City Council is moving forward with an effort to oust Mayor Adam Paul. The council voted 5-2 Wednesday night to have the city attorney draft an impeachment resolution against Paul. Only Paul and Councilwoman Linda Reel opposed the resolution.

The move comes just two days after the Ellisville Charter Enforcement Commission unanimously recommended that the impeachment complaint be thrown out.

Ironically, it's Martin who will present the resolution at the March 6th council meeting.

The specifics of the complaint against the mayor haven't been released, but Martin has clashed frequently with other council members over a controversial Walmart TIF that was passed last year. Martin had been elected last spring after campaigning against the TIF.

The mayor's attorney, Chet Pleban, says the impeachment effort will be met with litigation.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House Democrat's plan would send colleagues to prison for Representative Jeff Roorda, of Barnhart, introduced the bill Friday in response to a Republican House member's proposal to jail lawmakers for introducing gun control measures.

Roorda says he was "inspired" by the GOP approach to protecting gun rights and he wants to do the same for unions. Rep. Mike Leara, of St. Louis County, is sponsoring the bill banning gun-control legislation.

Both measures would give lawmakers prison terms of up to four years for proposing gun restrictions or anti-union bills.

The Republican-led Legislature is currently working on proposals to curb collective bargaining by limiting the ability of unions to collect fees from employees' paychecks.

WATERLOO, Ill. (AP) - A judge for the second time in four months has thrown out a lawsuit blaming a televangelist for a former employee's killings of his wife and two sons.

Associate Judge Richard Aguirre dismissed the suit Wednesday in Monroe County. Aguirre ruled that he can't see any way how Missouri-based Joyce Meyer Ministries could have foreseen that Christopher Coleman would kill his family.

Christopher Coleman killed his wife and sons at the Coleman's Columbia home in 2009. He was serving as Meyer's security chief. He's now serving a life sentence.

The lawsuit by Sheri Coleman's family says the ministry knew Christopher Coleman was unhappily married, did nothing to investigate threats against Coleman's family and didn't warn Sheri Coleman.

Attorneys behind the suit say they'll appeal.

HARRISBURG, Ill. (AP) - A black former student is suing because he contends his southern Illinois high school didn't protect him from racially motivated acts, which he says included being left a noose with his name on it.

The federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in Benton is on behalf of Roman Moore, who graduated from Harrisburg High School last May. The lawsuit claims principal Karen Crank and the school board knowingly allowed racially motivated acts against Moore and that officials didn't reprimand students for the noose he says was found in the high school's locker room a year ago.

Crank's office directed calls Wednesday to Superintendent Dennis Smith. He says he hasn't yet seen the lawsuit and deferred comment, other than to say there's a question about whether the rope was actually a noose.
