A low-flying military jet from a western Missouri Air Force base clipped several power lines, but officials said no injuries were reported.
The A-10 Thunderbolt military jet from Whiteman Air Force base hit several power lines that cross Stockton Lake, near Bona, about 30 miles northwest of Springfield. A-10 Thunderbolts are single-seat, twin-engine attack jets.
Crews have been working to mark the lake to keep boaters away from submerged power lines.
A Columbia lawyer says Boone County sheriff's deputies patrolling within city limits isn't following local ordinance that treats marijuana possession as a municipal violation.
In 2004, Columbia residents voted to amend a city ordinance and treat possession of up to 35 grams of marijuana as a misdemeanor. Violators are usually released with a summons to appear in court rather than placed under arrest.
But the Columbia-based Missouri Civil Liberties Association says the sheriff and the county prosecutor are disregarding the intent of city voters.
The University of Missouri announced today that all employees working in MU's main administrative building, Jesse Hall, will be moved to a new location to allow for the installation of sprinkler systems, improvements to the heating and cooling systems, and an additional elevator.
