Jun 7, 2012

After only one season, coach Ernie Nestor is resigning as assistant coach of the MU men's basketball team. Sources told the Columbia Daily Tribune that head coach Frank Haith wanted Nestor to move into a more administrative position, but that he preferred to stay on court. He's expected to take a position at the Naval Acadamy where he'll be allowed to do just that.

  Bill Kempker always has his helmet on when riding a motorcycle. It is required by Missouri law that all the motorcyclists on the state highway wear a helmet. But once he leaves Missouri and travels through states like Arkansas, where wearing helmet is an option instead of requirement, he would take the helmet off. But Kempker and other motorcyclists might be able to do that in Missouri soon. The Missouri House on Monday approved the bill HB 523 by a vote of 97-57. The bill would allow riders who are at least 21 years old to go without helmets.
