JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - County officials could compile lists of residents with health problems under a Missouri bill intended to identify people in need of help during disasters.
 
The bill given final approval Thursday by the Senate allows the creation of voluntary registries of people with "health-related ailments" who may need assistance in emergencies. The House passed the bill earlier, so it now goes to Gov. Jay Nixon.
 
The identities of people on the list would be exempt from disclosure under Missouri's open-records law. But an incident report would be made public if any of the people are involved in a disaster or emergency.
ST. CHARLES, MO (AP) – A Texas man faces second-degree assault charges after allegedly striking a bicyclist while driving drunk.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 47-year-old David E. Walker of Plano is accused of hitting 39-year-old cyclist Jeffrey Weckerherlin Wednesday evening on Missouri Highway 94.
 
The Missouri Highway Patrol says Weckerherlin suffered moderate injuries and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
 
Walker was jailed on a $50,000 cash-only bond. The assault charge incorporates his operation a motor vehicle while intoxicated, resulting in injury.

Rauner skips GOP event over pastor's comments

Thursday, 24 April 2014 13:44 Published in Local News
MOLINE, Ill. (AP) - GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner (ROW'-nur) isn't attending a Republican dinner in Moline because he says he disagrees with past statements from a pastor asked to speak at the event.
 
The Moline Dispatch Rauner was to attend Thursday's Rock Island County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner where the Rev. Donald Johnson of Rock Island's Destiny Baptist Church is speaking.
 
Rauner told The Associated Press Thursday he "strongly strongly" disagrees with Johnson's comments. He wouldn't elaborate.
 
The Dispatch reports Johnson's books accuse President Barack Obama of "anti-Biblical" actions and that he "homosexualized the military."
 
Johnson was taken off the program then added back.
 
He declined comment to the newspaper. Calls to his church went unanswered.
 
 County GOP chairman Bill Bloom says Johnson's social conservative message made Rauner's campaign "nervous."
