Egypt: Judge in Morsi's trial adjourns hearing

Monday, 04 November 2013 03:28 Published in National News

   CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's state TV says the judge in the trial of the country's deposed Islamist president and 14 others has adjourned the hearing soon after it started because the defendants' chants were disrupting the proceedings.

   The adjournment - likely to last till later on Monday - came after a two-hours delay in the start of the proceedings.

   Security officials inside the courtroom says the delay was caused by Mohammed Morsi's insistence not to change into the prison uniform customarily worn by defendants, part of his refusal to recognize the trial's legitimacy.

   The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

   Morsi and the others are charged with inciting murder and could face the death penalty if convicted.

   

MO state workers to get extra time off at Thanksgiving

Monday, 04 November 2013 03:08 Published in Local News

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is giving state employees an extra day off around Thanksgiving.

   State offices are closed by law on Thanksgiving. Nixon has issued an executive order also closing state offices the Friday after Thanksgiving.

   For many years, a four-day holiday weekend was the norm in Missouri government.

   But Nixon kept state offices open on the Friday after Thanksgiving in 2010 and 2011, citing budget concerns.

   Holidays have cost the state money because some employees who must work - such as prison guards - have been able to choose whether to claim extra time off or accept holiday bonus pay.

   Nixon says the budget has improved enough to give employees the extra day off. He also extended the Thanksgiving break last year.

 

AP Interview: MO Ag. Director defends departure

Monday, 04 November 2013 02:44 Published in Local News

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The former director of the Missouri Department of Agriculture is denying allegations that he created a hostile workplace.

   Jon Hagler was replaced as agriculture chief Oct. 11 by Gov. Jay Nixon and until now has remained silent about the reasons. His departure came a day after a former employee distributed a letter alleging Hagler created a workplace of "hostility, disrespect, intimidation and fear."

   Hagler sat down for an extended interview this weekend with The Associated Press. He described himself as a tough manager who expected a lot from employees - but wasn't hostile.

   Hagler says he told Nixon's staff he was ready to leave and planned to interview for a university job. He says the timing of the employee's allegations and his departure was mere coincidence.
