    Unhappy Not directly fire-related, but....

    At approximatly 1830 hours on Monday, Oct. 17, 2000, a plane believed to be carrying Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan went down in inclement weather near Pevely, MO - 50 miles S of St. Louis. At this time, wreckage has been found, as well as 3 bodies, although there has been no confirmation of identities. The Governor's office has confirmed Carnahan boarded a plane in St. Louis shortly before this crash, and was bound for New Madrid, MO. The crash site is along or near the Governor's intended flight path. The Governor has not been heard from since early this evening. No further information is available at this time.

    Unhappy

    Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan, his son and pilot of the plane, Randy Carnahan, and a campaign aide, Chris Sifford, all perished in the crash of their twin engine Cessna last night. Carnahan was in a race against John Ashcroft for a seat on the US Senate. He was 66 years old.

    What a loss it is for our State. Gov. Carnahan was a genuinely nice guy, and a friend to the fire service.
