Kirkwoods CU mourns members reopens Thursday
KIRKWOOD, Mo. (2/12/08)--Kirkwood (Mo.) Municipal CU, which lost three members in Thursday's shootings at Kirkwood City Hall, is back in its City Hall location but will resume full hours on Thursday, according to the Missouri Credit Union Association. The shootings, which killed five people, closed City Hall, and the credit union had to relocate to temporary quarters in the city's Parks Department building. City Hall is scheduled to reopen today. The credit union will have special hours this week so employees can attend memorial services for the victims who were members: Kirkwood Police Officers William Biggs and Tom Ballman, and Public Works Director Kenneth Yost. Yost's service was Monday. Today is Ballman's service, and the credit union will reopen at the City Hall location from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. On Wednesday, it will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Credit Union President Bob Dielschneider expects to resume normal hours on Thursday and Friday. The shootings occurred when Charles Lee "Cookie" Thornton arrived at a City Council meeting and began shooting, killing the police officers and three city officials. Thornton was shot to death by police. The mayor, who was shot twice in the head, remains in critical condition.
