COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The University of Missouri has hired an engineering company to inspect all of its buildings after a walkway collapsed at a university-run apartment complex last week, killing a firefighter.
 
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the university hired the firm, Trabue, Hansen & Hinshaw Inc., to inspect 1,300 campus buildings, including storage facilities. University spokesman Christian Basi says the university isn't giving the company a deadline for completing the inspections.
 
John Smith, a structural engineer with the firm, says the buildings on the list are all across the state, including farms and university extension offices.
 
Lt. Bruce Britt was on the second-floor walkway of University Village Apartments when the walkway collapsed Saturday morning. Britt, a 23-year veteran of the force, was pronounced dead at a hospital. No residents were injured.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Legislation passed by the Missouri House would give social workers more time to complete investigations into child abuse and neglect.
 
Current law stipulates that those investigations must be completed within 30 days. But the measure passed Thursday would allow the Department of Social Services to take up to 30 business days before submitting a report.
 
Sponsoring Rep. Bill Lant, a Pineville Republican, says these serious investigations shouldn't be rushed. He added that the current timetable puts a strain on department staff.
 
The House voted 151-1 to send the measure to the Senate.

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The new priest at St. Raymond's Maronite Cathedral in St. Louis is a married man.
   Wissam Akiki was ordained Thursday night in the church that sits near downtown St. Louis. Several hundred people - including Akiki's wife and 8 year old daughter - were on hand for the ceremony.
   Eastern Catholic churches in the Middle East and Europe ordain married men. However, the Vatican banned the practice in America in the 1920s.
   Pope John Paul II called for greater acceptance of Eastern Catholic traditions. Over the years, popes have made exceptions on a case-by-case basis for married men to become Eastern Catholic priests in America.
   Pope Francis gave permission for Akiki to be ordained. It's considered an exception, not a policy change.

   Sixth-grader Chloe Stirling will soon be back in the cupcake business.

   Officials in Madison County, Illinois, had ordered the 11 year old to stop baking cupcakes for sale, because the kitchen in her home didn't meet health department standards.

   The Triad Middle schooler and her parents told their story on the "Rachael Ray Show" that aired Thursday.  And a local plumbing company is upgrading the family kitchen thanks to donations of money and equipment.

   Chloe says she wants to use the money from her "Hey Cupcake!" business to someday buy a car.

   Even as the U.S. Postal Service considers stopping Saturday mail delivery, they're staffing up to begin package deliveries on Sundays.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Amazon.com is working with local postal officials to roll out Sunday delivery in the St. Louis region by mid-March.  
   The online retailer began Sunday deliveries in New York and Los Angeles in November and had said it would add markets this year, but St. Louis hadn't been mentioned until now.  
   The paper reports that the USPS will be hiring some new workers to meet demands for Sunday deliveries.  
   Amazon hasn't made an official announcement yet, but leaders of the local postal unions tell the paper they had been told that the target date for Sunday delivery in this region is March 16.

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former St. Louis City alderwoman has been fined $100,000 for using her campaign funds to pay off student loans and for spa visits.
   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Kacie Starr Triplett misused almost $19,000 in campaign donations on personal expenses.
   In a letter Thursday, Triplett apologized for her actions and said her decision stemmed from "greed and selfishness," not from need.
   The Missouri Ethics Commission levied the six-figure fine but is willing take only $10,000 if Triplett pays within 45 days. There is no criminal penalty in the commission's decision, although it could spur other investigations.
   Triplett left the Board of Alderman in 2012.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House has passed legislation that would require voters to show photo identification at polling places.
 
The Republican-led chamber voted 103-50 in favor of a constitutional amendment that would authorize the voting requirement. The Missouri Supreme Court struck down a previous photo ID law as unconstitutional.
 
The House also passed a separate bill with specific details of how the voting requirement would work if voters approve the constitutional change. Under that bill, only government-issued and military IDs could be used for voting.
 
Republicans supported the measures and say they protect the integrity of elections and prevent fraud. Democrats opposed the voting requirement and say it would disenfranchise voters who are unable to obtain a photo ID.
 
Both measures now head to the Senate.
