The state treasurer’s office is reaching out to Missouri lawmakers in an effort to raise awareness about the close to $1 billion in unclaimed property currently in its possession. Spread across more than 5 million accounts, some of these funds belong to individuals, businesses or local governments in the 9th Senate District.
Banks, businesses and insurance companies are bound by Missouri law to turn over unclaimed property to the state treasurer after accounts have been inactive and owners cannot be successfully contacted for a statutorily defined period of time, generally five years.
Currently, the treasurer’s office is holding more than $28.5 million in unclaimed property from approximately 199,853 account holders in District 9. The treasurer’s goal is to turn as much of this property over to the account owners or proper heirs as possible. As the treasurer’s office holds unclaimed property in perpetuity until a proper account owner can be located, you or a family member could have unclaimed property from years and even decades ago.
According to the treasurer’s office, one in 10 Missourians have unclaimed property, and claims frequently reach hundreds of dollars or more. Property owners can also choose to donate their unclaimed property to one of the many eligible charitable organizations.
The treasurer’s office is required by statute to publish names of unclaimed property owners in newspapers around the state in June. By law, specific dollar amounts that exceed $50 are not public record. You may also see information regarding unclaimed property on social media. For more information, the treasurer invites anyone to follow his office on Facebook and Twitter @MOTreasurer.
To file a claim or check for unclaimed property, please visit ShowMeMoney.com, or send a letter to P.O. Box 1004, Jefferson City, MO 65102-1004.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) encourages motorists to give turtles crossing roads a brake. Turtles are struck by cars throughout warmer months, but are at special risk this time of year because they are on the move. Young males make up most of the travelers as they search for territories of their own and for females. Females are also crossing roads in search of nesting sites. Comfort is also a factor. Like other reptiles, turtles are cold-blooded so basking on warm asphalt feels good on cool spring days.
MDC encourages motorists to slow down when they see a turtle in the road and check to be sure they can safely steer around it. If helping a turtle cross a road, keep human safety as the number-one concern. Check for traffic and move the turtle across the road in the direction it is traveling.
Watch a short MDC video on turtles crossing roads at youtube.com/watch?v=4KaTQ66uBhY.
Three-toed box turtles, ornate box turtles, and common snapping turtles are species often seen crossing roads in Missouri. For more information on Missouri turtles, visit MDC’s online Field Guide at nature.mdc.mo.gov/discover-nature/field-guide/search/turtle.
Don’t be alarmed or should we be. In doing a search for Super Fund Sites online there are eight sites that were listed in Camden County however only 4 were active Non-NPL superfund sites. The National Priorities List (NPL) is the list of national priorities among the known releases or threatened releases of hazardous substances, pollutants,
or contaminants throughout the United States and its territories. The NPL is intended primarily to guide the EPA in determining which sites warrant further investigation. The site that the EPA held a meeting on 4-11-17 in Camdenton High school common area had to deal with the Former Hulett Lagoon located 500 Ft Northeast Of Intersection Of Dawson Road And Sunset Dr. in Camdenton, MO. Department of Natural Resources was on hand with several members that were answer questions to individuals about what was going on with the project.
Information Provided by DNR
The Modine Manufacturing site, previously owned by Sundstrand Tubular Products, is located at 221 Sunset Drive, next to a residential neighborhood in Camdenton. Modine Manufacturing Co. is conducting investigations of contaminant releases at the facility under a Corrective Action Abatement Order on Consent with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. The department’s Hazardous Waste Program, Permits Section is providing oversight of these activities. Earlier investigations focused on soil contamination at the site. Due to advances in science and the understanding of potential health effects associated with vapors released from soil and groundwater contaminated with volatile organic compounds, the focus has shifted to investigating vapors inside the manufacturing building and nearby residential homes. The status of Modine’s corrective action activities is described below.
Hamilton-Sundstrand, parent company of former Sundstrand Tubular Products, is addressing related groundwater contamination issues with the Hulett Lagoon and Mulberry Well under a Cooperative Letter of Agreement with the department. The department’s Hazardous Waste Program, Superfund Section is providing oversight for these activities. Permits and Superfund are closely coordinating these activities. The status of Sundstrand’s remedial activities is described below.
The Modine Manufacturing Co. site is located on about 69 acres at 221 Sunset Drive (previously 179 Sunset Drive), next to a residential neighborhood in Camdenton. In 1967, Dawson Metal Products constructed a commercial building at the site and began manufacturing air-conditioning coils and feeder parts from aluminum and copper tubing. In 1972, Sundstrand Tubular Products bought out Dawson and produced aluminum and copper heat transfer units at the facility until 1990. During that time, the building underwent four expansions and is currently 120,000 square feet.
The manufacturing process required cutting and expanding aluminum and copper to bond the copper tubing with the aluminum fins. A vapor degreasing process was used to remove the oil and dirt from the various parts and assembled units before further processing. Both Dawson and Sundstrand used trichloroethylene (TCE) in the vapor degreasers. A variety of hazardous wastes were produced as part of the facility operations, including corrosive waste, wastewater treatment sludge from electroplating operations and residual contaminants associated with the degreasing operations.
From 1972 to 1990, Sundstrand stored the hazardous waste in three hazardous waste container storage areas. Area 1 was a 25 foot by 30 foot gravel area located outside, about 80 feet west of the west wall of the manufacturing building. Area 1 operated from 1972 to 1983, and stored up to forty-five 55-gallon drums of liquid waste and sludge at any given time, including TCE still bottoms, waste paint filters and liquid and non-hazardous waste oil. Area 1 was graded, paved and turned into an employee parking lot in 1983. Area 2 was a 25 foot by 30 foot concrete slab located outside, about 10 feet west of the west wall of the manufacturing building. Area 2 operated from 1983 to 1985. In addition to storing up to twenty 55-gallon drums, the area also contained one 1000-gallon waste oil tank and one 5300-gallon steel tank that held TCE still bottoms. Area 3 was a 25 foot by 50 foot area located along the south outside wall of the manufacturing building. Area 3 operated from 1979 to 1983, and reportedly stored 55-gallon drums of waste TCE and waste oil from the degreasing operations. In 1983, Area 3 was removed to make room for a building expansion to the south.
From 1967 to 1986, both Dawson and Sundstrand used four cement sumps (mud pits) for wastewater collection. The mud pits, located about 10 feet from the building foundation along the west side of the manufacturing building, were 4 feet by 4 feet by 4 feet deep. The mud pits received stormwater, boiler blowdown and cleaning line water from the manufacturing process. Each pit was connected to the pit next to it by a 6-inch diameter steel line. Mud pits #1 and #2 collected copper cleaning line waste. Mud pit #3 collected aluminum cleaning line waste. Mud pit #4, the southernmost mud pit, was an open pit that collected boiler water and stormwater. The contents of each mud pit flowed into the connected mud pit, in sequence from mud pit #4 to mud pit #1. The untreated wastewater eventually discharged from mud pit #1 into the on-site wastewater discharge line, which connected to the Cty of Camdenton sewer system along the north side of the manufacturing building. The untreated wastewater mixed with sanitary wastes from surrounding residential properties while it traveled to a 1-acre, off-site wastewater treatment lagoon, known as the Hulett Lagoon. Located about one-fourth mile to the northeast of the manufacturing building, Hulett Lagoon was operated by the City of Camdenton from 1961 to1989. The lagoon received stormwater and untreated wastewater from the Sundstrand facility, other commercial waste streams from the Hulett Chevrolet Buick GMC car dealership and domestic sewage from the surrounding residences. In 1985, Sundstrand removed mud pit #2, closed the Area 2 hazardous waste container storage area and installed a wastewater pretreatment system over the area. Sundstrand began using the wastewater pretreatment system in 1986 and stopped discharging untreated waste to the city sewer system.
In October 1990, Modine Heat Transfer Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Modine Manufacturing Co., purchased the property from Sundstrand and continued producing aluminum and copper heat transfer units until 1997. Modine used 1,1,1-trichloroethane (1,1,1-TCA) in the vapor degreasers from 1990 until 1993, and methylene chloride from 1993 until 1997. In April 1997, Modine Heat Transfer Inc. merged with Modine Manufacturing Co. and changed its name to Modine Manufacturing Co.
In 1997, Modine completely renovated the building’s interior as part of a product-line change, which required replacing all equipment in the plant, except the wastewater and electrical systems. Modine removed the vapor degreasing units and brought all recessed floors to grade. In 1997, Modine began producing radiators (large heat transfer units) using a different manufacturing process. No chlorinated vapor degreasing was used in the parts cleaning process. In February 2009, CLA LLC purchased the property from Modine, who in-turn sold the property to RAASMartin LLC. Modine continued operating at the facility under a lease agreement until 2012.
In 2000, Hamilton-Sundstrand, parent company of former Sundstrand Tubular Products, entered into a voluntary letter of agreement with the department, in order to enter Superfund’s State Cooperative Program. In March 2016, Hamilton Sundstrand Corp. (a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.), Modine Manufacturing Co. and the City of Camdenton entered into an Administrative Order on Consent with the department. The city is a responsible party since they owned and operated the former Hulett Lagoon.
http://brsg.org/wordpress/programs/camp/application-forms/MCBC celebrated 20 years of excellence in creating unforgettable camp experiences for children who have survived serious burn injuries.
At Midwest Children’s Burn Camp (MCBC), campers enjoy adventures including zip-lining, kayaking, canoeing, water-tubing, archery, crafts, and even a 110 foot water slide into the lake. And lots of dancing and celebrating! MCBC offers a safe and supportive environment where young burn survivors spend a week with others who have also experienced the trauma of burn injuries. Fun is the focus and friendships form quickly. Burn Camp provides campers with life-long friends to share their journeys with as they get back to living.
Since all campers at this unique camp are survivors of burns, everyone has scars on the outside. Campers learn they are not defined by their “wrapping paper”. Emphasis focuses on the beautiful person on the inside, not the scars on the outside. Campers learn a “can do” attitude and experience Fun, Friends and Memories that last a life-time. Camp positively impacts each child’s attitude and self-image. It’s a chance to have fun without the staring and questions that are too common for burn survivors. “At camp I can put on my swim-suit and not worry about having to answer questions from strangers or re-live my accident.” Campers and counselors explain, “One week of burn camp does more than years of therapy!”
MCBC was founded in 1997 by Gary and Linda Hansen who envisioned a safe place for children struggling with the challenges associated with surviving serious burn injuries.
Campers attend at no charge thanks to generous community support. The residential camp is provided for children ages six to seventeen who have survived serious burn injuries; campers are accepted from all over Missouri and neighboring states. Free transportation to camp is provided from St. Louis, Columbia, Springfield and Kansas City. Attendance at camp is subject to medical approval. Contact Us for more information or Apply today to be a Camper.
Bullfighting is a physical contest that generally involves humans attempting to publicly subdue, immobilise, or kill a bull, usually according to a set of rules, guidelines, or cultural expectations. Although people commonly think of Spanish-style bullfighting as representative of bullfighting, there are many different forms and varieties in various locations around the world. Some forms involve dancing around or over a cow or bull, or attempting to grasp an object from the animal.
Freestyle bullfighting is a style of bullfighting developed in American rodeo. The style was developed by the rodeo clowns who protect bull riders from being trampled or gored by an angry bull. Freestyle bullfighting is a 70-second competition in which the bullfighter (rodeo clown) avoids the bull by means of dodging, jumping and use of a barrel. Competitions are organized in the US as the “World” Bullfighting Championship (WBC) and the Dickies National Bullfighting Championship under auspices of the Professional Bull Riders.
LEBANON, Missouri- On Friday at 12:39 a.m., Lebanon police say they were called to the 200 block of South Washington Avenue for a report on a burglary and shots fired.
Arriving officers met with the victim, a 24 year old black male, of Lebanon, who was inside his neighbor’s apartment. The man said he was upstairs in his apartment sleeping in his bedroom when somebody kicked his door in and started shooting at him. The victim then said he jumped up out of his bed and ran into another bedroom where he climbed out the window onto the balcony. He told police he heard some more shots, so he jumped from the second floor balcony onto the ground, hurting his right ankle.
Officers reported they talked to the neighbors in the other surrounding apartments, but no one had heard any shots being fired as the victim claimed. Police said they went to the man’s apartment to investigate, but did not find any shell casings or any other type of evidence of person(s) firing a gun inside the apartment. The injured victim was transported to the Lebanon Mercy Hospital Emergency Room for treatment on his right ankle, police said.
The incident is being investigated as 1st degree burglary.
