The ACLU of Missouri filed a federal lawsuit against the Rolla Public Library on Tuesday. 

According to the ACLU, Randy Johnson attempted to reserve a room at the Rolla Public Library in January. He was planning to teach volunteers how to collect signatures in support of a ballot proposition to legalize medical marijuana in the state.

The lawsuit states that when the library’s director found out the purpose of the meeting, Johnson was denied use of a room.

The Missouri University of Science and Technology has suspended the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity after two students were injured during an event last week at the fraternity house.

The university said in a news release Monday that campus police were notified Sunday and that an investigation is underway. The release offered no details about how the students were hurt or the extent of their injuries.

During the suspension, the fraternity won't be recognized as a student organization and won't have access to the Rolla university's facilities.

A 37-year-old soldier killed by a gunman in the recent shooting at Fort Hood, Texas, will be honored with a procession before being laid to rest.

The Missouri University of Science and Technology is continuing a tradition that began in 1908 when a group of Rolla students declared that St. Patrick was the patron saint of engineers.

The St. Patrick's celebration has grown to include more than a week's worth of events. The first is from March 4 through March 7 when students will club plastic snakes with large decorative sticks called shillelaghs. On March 13, a Missouri S&T student portraying St. Pat will arrive in downtown Rolla with his court aboard the traditional manure spreader.
