If you remember in 2008, Sergeant William Biggs and Officer Thomas Ballman were both shot and killed when a suspect opened fire at a Kirkwood City Council Meeting.  Not only did the Kirkwood Police Department lose a 20-year veteran, Bill Biggs, his family lost a husband and dad.

– Conservation officials say they don’t plan immediate measures to compensate for deer losses to hemorrhagic diseases, but they will look carefully at harvest information, reports of sick deer and hunter surveys when considering future hunting regulations.
