Baby dies in Norvi Apartments; father tased, then arrested on unrelated warrants
SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (Oct. 13, 2014) — A baby is dead, his father was arrested after being tased by police, and the county coroner says an autopsy is planned for Tuesday to determine why the boy died a few days short of his fourth month of life. Coroner Mikel Hartness confirmed that emergency personnel were called to the Norvi Apartments for a report of a baby who had died. The baby was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital (GLWACH) where he was pronounced dead by hospital officials at 1:40 p.m. An autopsy is routine in such cases, Hartness said. “All child deaths are automatically suspicious; children aren’t supposed to die,” Hartness said. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

**EDITORIAL:** Stay alert to OPSEC on social media
(Oct. 7, 2014) — I've been aware for some time that I have a number of suspicious Facebook friends. I discovered a particularly egregious offender on my personal Facebook friend list today and removed "her." That person has been on my friend list for years but finally did something stupid enough for me to start checking, and what I found was crystal clear evidence not only of fraud but also of successful efforts to "friend" others on Facebook. Since then, I've started investigating other suspicious FB accounts on my "friend" list. Some are obvious frauds, but others took some serious digging to turn up problems. I do not like what I am finding. Bottom line: Use common sense. Think before trusting. We teach "stranger danger" to our children and we ought to be applying the same principles to our internet interactions. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

Step up for Waynesville utility bills may not include other utility companies
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (Oct. 7, 2014) — The Waynesville City Council has already approved the concept of a program allowing residents to “round up” their utility bills to the next closest dollar to help community families in need, but the chairman of the city’s utility committee wants to add language requiring that the needy families pay Waynesville utility bills, not utility bills to other entities. Councilman Mike France asked how procedures would work for people who choose to use a “Step Up for Waynesville” option to round their bill to the next highest whole dollar amount, with the excess being used for a charitable fund to help people with utility bills. For example, France said he didn’t like the idea of people in Laquey using Waynesville money to pay a Laclede Electric Cooperative utility bill. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

County considers getting rid of one road, finding ways to pay for others
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 6, 2014) — During Monday's meeting, county commissioners considered ways to eliminate one road from the county road system which is being used as a private driveway while also considering ways to obtain enough funding to maintain hard-surfaced roads in the residential subdivisions outside St. Robert. The driveway is owned by Beth Holsather and is technically still part of Tigger Lane in the Misty Mountain subdivision, but neither the property owner nor the county want the road to remain a county road. A resident of a different subdivision off Texas Road east of St. Robert, Art Lambert, told commissioners that he’s asked his neighbors about a NID (neighborhood improvement district) to assess a special tax for road maintenance, and he said his neighbors are supportive. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...

Commissioners upset by prevailing wage costs to county
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 2, 2014) — Faced with major costs to repair the outside fascia on the upper level of the courthouse which is at risk of falling down, as well as tens of millions of dollars to repair flood-damaged county roads, Pulaski County commissioners took aim at federal prevailing wage laws during their Thursday meeting, laws which they said unreasonably increased the cost of county projects. The commissioners received a single bid of $284,300 from Bales Construction Company for courthouse repair, which was the only company that bid on the project. That bid includes prevailing wage rates for labor which are much higher than most private employers pay for construction in Pulaski County. Commissioners said the prevailing wage rate problems were caused by unrealistic union wage scales and asked if there’s a way around paying prevailing wage. “It seems kind of high to me... there’s no way around this?” asked Western District Commissioner Ricky Zweerink. Click here to read more on Pulaski County Daily News ...
