The next two years will see numerous changes to the Poplar Bluff School District, and officials are excited to get the projects underway.  Superintendent Chris Hon tells KZIM KSIM it started with voter approval of a $50 million bond project this spring.

The latest development is renderings of the changes and he says next they will get blueprints and send the projects out for bid.  Hon adds they hope to break ground in the coming spring and finish by the 2016-2017 school year.

The project calls for changes to nearly all the buildings and moving the 4th grade from the elementary school to a new 4th through 6th Center.

October 22, 2014 AP No Comments

Robert Stamm Jr. has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for violating the probation he received for child molestation. The Park Hills Daily Journal reports St. Francois Circuit Court Judge Kelly Parker imposed the sentence after Stamm admitted to a supervision/residency violation. The 36-year old Park Hills resident had been placed on probation in January of 2010 after entering an Alford plea to the Class B felony charge. By entering an Alford plea he did not admit to any element of the charges but recognized there was sufficient evidence for trial.  Charges were filed after a child told police in 2006 that Stamm touched her inappropriately between 2002 and 2003 while she was sleeping. Stamm admitted to a police officer that he touched the girl.

October 22, 2014 AP No Comments

Three Anna-Jonesboro football players have been removed from the team and the school after what school leaders describe as a bullying incident.  District Superintendent Rob Wright says the school is considering the incident as bullying.  The father of the victim involved in the alleged bullying wouldn’t go in to detail about what happened. However, he did say the alleged bullying involved a few high school football players in the locker room and when he heard someone put their hands on his son, he says they crossed the line.  Wright says there will be a special school board meeting on Nov. 3 to considering expulsion of the three students. The board will go into closed session to make the decision.  The current suspension could last up to two years. The students will not be in school until the hearing.  The Anna Police Department has been notified of the suspensions.  Several parents showed up at a meeting at the high school library Monday night to speak out about the incident.

A Kansas City woman has pleaded guilty to a $3 million fraud that forced her employer to declare bankruptcy and close the business.  Federal prosecutors say 52-year-old Irene Marie Brooner pleaded guilty Wednesday to bank fraud. She admitted that for more than a decade she took the money from Galvmet Inc., a sheet metal fabrication and steel service center in Kansas City. The company closed in 2014, when it had 18 to 20 employees.  Brooner was a controller who managed payroll and accounts at Galvmet. During the scheme, she created 389 unauthorized transactions from the company’s bank account to her personal account and increased her net pay on about 108 checks.  Brooner was ordered to forfeit her home, a Lexus, jewelry and at least $2.9 million.

James Carver, who died in 2008, is getting a heavenly send off this weekend in Springfield.  On Saturday night, Greenlawn Funeral Homes will hold its first Firework Memorial program, in which fireworks packed with cremated remains are fired into the air as part of the family’s goodbye.  Carver’s family is the first to try Greenlawn’s new program. His son is funeral director Jim Carver. He says his father loved watching fireworks and would appreciate the unusual send off. The family will follow the eight-minute fireworks display with a cookout and memorial celebration.  The Springfield News-Leader reports Greenlawn’s Fireworks Memorials range from a $300 “Sensational Celebration” to the “Ultimate Goodbye,” costing between $8,000 and $10,000.  Missouri law does not prevent scattering remains and Greenlawn is outside Springfield city limits.
