KOAM MORNING NEWS TO KNOW 3-21

Updated:

JOPLIN POLICE PAY

  • Joplin's police union hopes new results from a study bring about change in attracting and retaining officers.  The police union has released data from a study of ten other cities, based on population and calls to their police stations.  The starting salary of a new Joplin Police Officer is about $8,000 less than the average of the other cities, yet Joplin handles about 17,000 more calls for service per year.           

TRUMP’S CALL TO PUTIN

  • President Trump congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin on his reelection win, even though his national security advisers reportedly asked him not to.  According to a report in the Washington Post, there was even a note in his briefing materials that read "do not Congratulate" in all-capital letters.  The president also went against the advice of his aides by not condemning the Russian President over the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter.

SEVERE WEATHER

  • Powerful weather strikes three areas of the nation.  Damaging winds and tornado warnings were felt throughout the Southeast yesterday.  The northeast is getting hit with its fourth nor'easter this month.  And out west, tens of thousands of Southern California residents were ordered to evacuate as storms there could bring another round of flooding and mudslides.
