MoDOT's Motorist Assist turns 20 years old

Thursday, 29 August 2013 11:19 Published in Local News

The Missouri Department of Transportation is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Motorist Assist, which helps stranded drivers on Missouri's roads and highways. 

Last year Motorist Assist handled around 37,000 incidents, including more than 8,000 abandoned vehicles, 7,700 mechanical repairs and around 5,500 tire changes. 

A typical Motorist Assist driver will cover about 200 miles per shift. Primary duties include securing the scene, assisting emergency personal, and taking care of the stranded drivers. 

Drivers who have been helped by Motorist Assist can thank the operators in person tonight as MoDOT hosts an open house on from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Motorist Assist station at 669 Salt Mill Road, in Chesterfield.

Governors Jay Nixon and Rick Perry gave no ground in their opinion of the Texas Governor's advertising campaign aimed at luring Missouri business to the Lone Star State. The two joined McGraw this morning with both firmly committed to their point of view. Governor Nixon says Texas is simply poaching business, while Rick Perry says it's merely competition in a very competitive arena. Perry also contends that $40-million in business leaves Missouri for Texas every year, although he could not name any of the businesses. Nixon contests that figure and says the bottom line is that states should be competing against the world for a piece of the economic pie, not slicing into each other's portion. Watch the full interviews below.



Boonville Schools stick by Superintendent

Wednesday, 28 August 2013 09:45 Published in Local News

The Boonville School District is standing by its superintendent following an investigation into the rodeo clown incident. The investigation by the district clears Dr. Mark Ficken of any wrongdoing stemming from the incident at the Missouri State Fair earlier this month. The report, prepared by a former Missouri Public Schools Superintendent and a former Missouri Attorney General, says Dr. Ficken was incorrectly credited as the man making disparaging remarks about President Obama, when in fact, they say, it was a rodeo clown.
