Columbia, MO – The University of Missouri men's basketball team has suspended guard Ricky Clemons for one year after he pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor charges of third-degree assault and false imprisonment.

Springfield, ILL. – Illinois will resume smallpox vaccinations Wednesday with new warnings.
The state suspended the shots last month after seven people developed heart problems after being vaccinated.

Illinois health officials have so far vaccinated 118 health care workers who might be the first to respond to a bioterrorist attack.
