A pit bull that’s been running around the west side finally is caught and now has a home. The staff animal shelter in Laurie had received well over 100 phone calls over the past two years about a stray pit bull that would growl and run away every time someone would attempt to capture the animal. Over the past two years the pit bull has gone from Gravois Mills to Laurie. Staff officers were alerted that she was hiding at the Marco’s pizza location on highway 5 and apparently had given birth to 9 puppies that were also there with her. Once volunteers from the shelter arrived on scene, they were able to get medication administered to the animal to calm her down and threw a leash on her finally capturing the animal. One of the volunteers took the animal and her puppies into her home and has since officially adopted the dog.
A woman is in the hospital after the vehicle she was driving rolls over her. According to the Missouri highway patrol, 41 year old Lorie Evans of Gravois Mills was involved in a prior accident at highway 5 and route TT in Gravois Mills. While she was walking back to her vehicle, she slipped on the ice and fell to the ground. Apparently the vehicle had not been put into park and it began to roll down the road, eventually rolling over the woman and then rolling into an embankment. She was transported to lake regional for treatment while the vehicle was left where it sat. The highway patrol was assisted by the Morgan county sheriff’s office.
A local business is receiving consideration for a possible fee waiver. The Camden county commission is considering waiving or discounting permit fees in the zoning case of sugarloaf winery. The owners of the winery have been going thru the zoning process for the past three years and have run into some difficulties along the way. The issue was up for additional discussion at a recent meeting but was tabled to get further legal counsel on the proposed action. The county commission plans to take up the issue again in one to two weeks, at which time a vote is expected. The winery is in the midst of being developed at the end of the big Niangua arm of the Lake of the Ozarks.

Please do what you need to protect life and property.
Crews continue to battle the state’s most recent snow storm. While some progress has been made, drifting snow and extremely cold temperatures have made clearing roadways slow going. Randy Aulbur, mo-dot’s central district maintenance engineer says motorists should still be prepared for partly covered roads today and should slow down and allow extra time for commutes. Mo-dot crews will continue to work around the clock to restore state routes to near normal conditions. A wind chill advisory also remains in effect today for the KRMS listening area.
