Highway Patrol Head Leaving for Gaming Commission
JEFFERSON CITY - The State Highway Patrol's leader is leaving his job, so the patrol's top two jobs will be open. The patrol said Monday that Col. Roger Stottlemyre is leaving as of Sept. 1. Stottlemyre started working for the patrol in September 1974. A patrol spokesman said Stottlemyre will begin working for the Missouri Gaming Commission, which said he'll take over as deputy director of enforcement. Last week, Gov. Blunt nominated the patrol's second-in-charge, assistant superintendent William Seibert Jr., to the state Board of Probation and Parole, effective Sept. 1.
