BARD NOT RESIGNING

  • A day after submitting his resignation, newly elected Joplin City Council member Joshua Bard has changed his mind.  Missouri state law states felons are not eligible to be *candidates* for a local or state office.  Joshua Bard pleaded guilty to manufacturing methamphetamine in Newton County in 2005.  Bard says after he talked with Joplin's city attorney, he initially decided the best decision was to submit his resignation from the city council.  But on Thursday, Bard says his supporters helped convince him to try to remain in his position.

TV TOWER COLLAPSE

  • Authorities in Webster County Missouri say a TV tower collapsed killing one person.  The Logan-Rogersville fire chief says six people were working on the tower.  They say the man who died was on the ground at the time of the collapse.  Other people were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  Authorities say the tower is owned by the Springfield PBS affiliate.

COMEY MEMOS

  • The Justice Department delivered copies of the Comey memos to congress Thursday.  Former FBI Director James Comey authored the memos, detailing his conversations with President Trump.  They reference the so-called ‘Steele dossier’ and a request for the FBI to investigate.  In the memos, Comey does not appear to be worried about the fate of his job.

BARBARA BUSH

  • The public can pay their respects to former First Lady Barbara Bush today at St. Martin's Episcopal church in Houston.  A public viewing begins this afternoon.  Yesterday the city of Houston held a "celebration of life" in honor of Mrs. Bush, encouraging attendees to wear pearls and the former first lady's favorite color, blue.
