  • Amtrak Ridership Sees GrowthAmtrak Ridership Sees Growth

    Missouri transportation officials say this year's spike in Amtrak ridership continued to rise from July through October. The Jefferson City News Tribune reports the state Department of Transportation found a 5 percent growth in the number of Amtrak riders on the twice-daily trains at the Jefferson City station. Officials believe the new trend may be a result of increased gas prices and successful summer promotions attracting new riders. Past years showed a decline in ridership. Officials attributed the drop to low gas prices and delays during the construction of a high-speed rail service to Chicago. Railroad administrators say the $2 billion high-speed rail project is nearly complete. They expect good news to continue about increased ridership and satisfaction.

    Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill says she's giving away $30,000 that fellow Democratic Sen. Al Franken's leadership PAC donated to her campaign. McCaskill's Friday tweet announcing that she donated the money to Missouri food banks came after a Los Angeles radio anchor accused Franken of forcibly kissing her during a 2006 USO tour and of posing for a photo with his hands on her breasts as she slept. Franken has apologized. McCaskill has said the behavior is unacceptable and called for an investigation. A Republican vying for her Senate seat had criticized her for not taking a stronger stance. Attorney General Josh Hawley on Thursday tweeted that McCaskill should join him in asking for Franken to resign and return the money she's received from his leadership PAC.

  • Missouri Tax Credit on the Chopping BlockMissouri Tax Credit on the Chopping Block

    Missouri’s largest $140 million plus tax cut for low income housing developers is in trouble. On Friday morning, by a vote of 6-2, the Missouri Housing Development Commission voted to not distribute the money allocated by the state legislature under the Missouri Low Income Tax Credit Program. One member of the committee, Missouri Treasurer Eric Schmitt, said through a spokesman that he needs more information before he votes definitively on this matter. “The treasurer’s votes today were based on the need for more clarity on how ongoing federal tax reform efforts could alter the implementation of tax credit programs.” Developers and government housing officials are not happy with the decision. CEO of the Columbia Housing Authority Phil Steinhaus questions whether the commission has the authority to effectively end the tax cut. “Being as the legislature has already allocated those funds, the Missouri Housing Development Commission is just responsible for allocating those funds out to

But, she said, it’s not so easy to find people her own age that like the game as much as she does. That’s one of the reasons Allison decided to go to Columbia College’s Girls Who Game event in September. The event was for girls ages 12 to 14 who are interested in gaming and game design. The girls played games in the campus’ “Gaming Hut,” which is also home to the Columbia College eSports team.

  • Math Pathways Initiative Is in Full SwingMath Pathways Initiative Is in Full Swing

    Colleges around the state have started to offer new math courses in response to the Missouri Department of Higher Education’s Math Pathways initiative. The initiative is designed to give students math classes that are more appropriately aligned with their programs of study. Some colleges no longer require college algebra for students who don’t need higher level math classes. Rusty Monhollon, who oversees the Math Pathways initiative, said these alternative courses should not only set them up for academic success, but also for career success. “I think we’ve been failing students by not giving them the kind of mathematics content and knowledge they need to be successful in their own lives and in their careers,” Monhollon said. In response, the University of Missouri has started offering a new course for students called quantitative reasoning. Students who don’t need college algebra as a prerequisite for higher level classes are encouraged to take quantitative reasoning as an alternative.

  • Review of Old Court Cases Continues in Ferguson Review of Old Court Cases Continues in Ferguson

    U.S. Department of Justice and Ferguson, Missouri, officials say the city is still poring over old municipal court cases trying to determine which should be dismissed as part of an agreement with the Justice Department. About 90 people showed up Wednesday night for an update on reforms in the St. Louis suburb where Michael Brown died in a 2014 police shooting that became a catalyst for the national Black Lives Matter movement. Several residents questioned the progress being made toward reviewing the backlog of court cases. More than 10,000 old cases are still being reviewed with plans to dismiss charges for minor violations. Justice Department attorney Jude Volek says 32,000 cases have previously been dismissed, many for failure to appear in court — a citation often criticized as generating revenue on the backs of poor and minority residents.
