Good morning readers, welcome to another edition of the Missourian Monday Briefing. We're here to give you a glimpse at some of the top stories from last week and plan the week ahead.

A former MU professor owes the university system $600,000 in damages. Galen Suppes, a former chemical engineering professor at MU, gave exclusive rights of his invention to his own company rather than the UM System. Rules state that anything created by an individual while they are employed at MU belongs to the university system.

Cuts may be coming to those who need in-home aide, affecting about 7,500 people in Missouri. Chad Grotewiel and Bill Neal are two Missourians at risk of losing their in-home care funding as a bill is being reevaluated after Gov. Greitens’ last-moment veto.

The 2017 Lupus Chili fest was canceled due to “large and unruly crowds.” Lupus, which has a population of 30, had problems in recent years with festival crowds larger than they could handle. The festival was created originally to raise money for the village, but locals say it has changed from the its early purpose.
