With Halloween just a couple of days away, St. Louis County Police want to remind residents to make it a time of treat rather than trick.  

Police are urging people to remember that Halloween is a time of high pedestrian and vehicle traffic and to remain cautious and aware while enjoying any festivities.

Officials say some important tips include, driving slowly through neighborhoods and having children stay in large groups as there is safety in numbers.

Staying in lighted areas is also a safety precaution.

County police chief Tim Fitch says they are offering Halloween Safety Centers and extra patrols throughout every precinct on Halloween night.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A former Lindenwood University student must serve 90 days in jail, pay the school $5,000 and publicly apologize for publishing confidential student information online.

 

   The St. Charles County prosecutor's office said Addison Richard Todd was sentenced Monday. He previously pleaded guilty to two counts of tampering with computer data and one count of tampering with a computer user. Both are misdemeanors.

 

   In March, an anonymous source began using Twitter and a Web-based file-sharing site to release a list of more than 180 students who had been suspended the previous semester. Student phone numbers, Social Security numbers, email addresses and grade-point averages were also posted.

   Todd must also pay about $1,600 in restitution to St. Charles County's cybercrime investigative unit, and is banned from any Lindenwood campuses.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A temporary leader has been picked for the University Missouri-Columbia.

 

   University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe announced Monday that general counsel Steve Owens will serve as interim chancellor for the Columbia campus. The Columbia Daily Tribune (http://is.gd/o2IFZ1) reports that Owens will begin leading the school after the retirement of outgoing chancellor Brady Deaton takes effect on Nov. 15.

 

   MU Deputy Chancellor Mike Middleton has been picked to serve as a transition executive. Owens and Middleton aren't candidates for the chancellor position.

 

   UM system spokesman John Fougere says the goal is to name a new chancellor soon. A search committee is in the process of vetting applicants and interviewing candidates.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The former director of Missouri's unemployment benefits agency is alleging discrimination in her firing by Gov. Jay Nixon's administration.

   Gracia Backer was replaced in March as director of the Division of Employment Security in Missouri's labor department. Her ouster came at the same time that Nixon appointed labor department director Larry Rebman to a different job.

   Documents provided Monday to The Associated Press show Backer has filed a discrimination complaint with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights. The complaint claims Backer was fired after raising concerns that Rebman was discriminating against her and other older and female employees.

   Rebman told the AP on Monday that he didn't discriminate against Backer.

   The governor's office never announced why Backer was replaced as division director.
