   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have selected Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree with the 30th overall pick in the NFL draft and their second in the first round.

   Ogletree likely fills a starting vacancy at outside linebacker.

   Earlier in the evening, the Rams got help for quarterback Sam Bradford, trading up eight spots with Buffalo and taking West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin with the eighth overall selection in the NFL draft.

   The Bills also got the Rams' second- and seventh-round picks in the deal.

   The 5-8, 172-pound Austin was considered the best overall wide receiver in the draft.

   The 6-3, 242-pound Ogletree left Georgia after his junior season when he totaled 111 tackles in 10 games, all but one of them starts. Ogletree was suspended the first four games last season and had a DUI arrest a week before the combine.

The bill would extend the requirement to all Missouri employers.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A proposal to designate an official anthem of Missouri appears to have hit a flat note in a legislative committee.

   Opera singer Neal E. Boyd wants lawmakers to designate a song that he wrote called the "Missouri Anthem" as the official state anthem. But his pitch received mixed reviews Thursday by the House tourism committee.

 

   While some lawmakers praised the song, others suggested it seemed a little too high-cultured for Missouri and might sound better with a fiddle or some country twang.

   The committee decided not to vote on the legislation Thursday, making it unlikely to advance before the session ends in mid-May.

   Boyd is a Sikeston native who won an America's Got Talent contest in 2008.

   Anthem bill is HB871.

   Authorities say there was a dispute between the man suspected of killing five members of a Manchester, Illinois family and at least one of the victims, but they don't know what it was about.  

   Illinois State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says investigators are running down reports that Rick Smith was involved in a custody dispute with a member of the family.  His brother has said the victims were all related to Smith's ex-girlfriend. 

   Illinois State Police have released the identities of five family members killed.  Authorities have identified the victims as brothers, one year old Brantley Ralston and five year old Nolan Ralston.  Their slain parents are 29 year old James Roy Ralston and 23 year old Brittney Luark, who was also five months pregnant. The fifth victim is Luark's grandmother and the great grandmother of the children, 67 year old Jo Ann Sinclair.

   Hospital officials in Springfield say the lone survivor of the shooting spree, the boys' six year old sister, has been upgraded from serious to fair condition.

   Smith was shot and later died following a gun battle with police.
 
   A trust fund has now been established at the Peoples Bank and Trust to help the family of the victims pay for funeral expenses.
