Mon, 16 Oct 2017 21:25:57 +0000

A 20-year-old man was shot and killed Saturday in a student-housing complex in south Columbia.

Those are just the most recent reports of gunplay that have some of us longtime residents wondering whether our town is becoming dangerous. We’re not St. Louis or Chicago, but we’re not exactly peaceful Collegetown USA any more. Or are we? Read the complete column online at the Missourian

Global Journalist: Kenya Tensions Spike Amid Electoral Dispute

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 15:29:52 +0000

A decade ago a disputed presidential election in Kenya led to violence that left more than 1,400 people dead and forced 600,000 from their homes. Now political tensions are again running high after another disputed election in August. The country's electoral board declared incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta the victor by 1.4 million votes over opposition candidate Raila Odinga. But Kenya's Supreme Court nullified the result, saying the poll had been marred by "irregularities" and ordered a new election. That poll was scheduled to take place Oct. 26, but its future is now in doubt after Odinga pulled out saying the new election would also not be free and fair. Odinga's supporters have taken to the streets and the government has sought to quell the upheaval by banning public protests in three major cities. On this edition of Global Journalist, we take an in-depth look at the political crisis in a country once considered a beacon of stability in Africa.

University of Missouri Calls Off Search for Staff Lobbyist

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 12:13:31 +0000

The University of Missouri has called off its search for a staff lobbyist to replace employees it laid off in June. After laying off employees in the University Relations office following system-wide budget cuts, the university started to search for a lobbyist to replace those employees, but they’ve canceled that search. This means the university is now relying on third party lobbying firms like Clark Hill and Statehouse Strategies.

Missouri Prairie Foundation Gets Creative to Save Endangered Ecosystem

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 16:57:51 +0000

It’s just before dawn in Southwest Missouri, and the outermost rays of the sun are just starting to reach across a dazzling array of wildflowers carpeting the shallow valley that runs along County Road 2120 near Mount Vernon. Crickets and cicadas are in full voice, interrupted only by the piercing call of dickcissels who nest in the thickets of sumac that dot the grassland.

GEORGE KENNEDY: Is MU Facing a Challenge or an Opportunity?

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 22:47:22 +0000

William Wiebold, the incoming chair of our university’s Faculty Council, began his first address to the fall general faculty meeting Wednesday with a little joke. An agronomist, he said he would have preferred to be discussing methods of increasing soybean yields rather than the range of issues facing the campus. It isn’t hard to see why. While soybean yield per acre is predicted to be down slightly this year, total production in Missouri and across the country is expected to set new records. So the productivity challenge would appear to be something short of critical. Not so with the challenges facing the university. Read the complete column online at the Columbia Missourian .
