Obama calls for restoring unemployment benefits

Saturday, 04 January 2014 08:47 Published in National News

HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama is urging Congress to reinstate jobless benefits for more than a million Americans.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says the unemployment insurance is a "vital economic lifeline" for many people. And he says failure to reinstate the benefits will cause the economy to slow for all Americans.

A bipartisan proposal in the Senate would restore the benefits for three months. Obama says if lawmakers pass the measure, he will sign it.

Obama is due to return from vacation in Hawaii on Sunday.

Mississippi Congressman Gregg Harper delivered the Republican weekly address. He calls on the Senate to pass the Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act. It seeks to boost funding for pediatric research at the National Institutes of Health.

The measure passed the House in December.

Boeing machinists OK contract tied to 777X

Saturday, 04 January 2014 08:45 Published in Local News

SEATTLE (AP) — Boeing machinists have approved a contract that would concede some pension and health care benefits in order to secure assembly of the company's new 777X airplane in the Puget Sound region.

The offer fractured the union and drew unusual pleas from local politicians who said the deal is necessary to support the region's economic future. Boeing had been exploring the prospect of building the 777X elsewhere, a move that could've triggered a steady exodus of aerospace jobs from a region where Boeing was founded.

Local union officials urged their 30,000 members to oppose the deal, arguing that the proposal surrenders too much at a time when the company is profitable.

After machinists rejected an initial proposal in November, Boeing received submissions for 54 locations in 22 states that wanted the 777X work.

St. Louis pet owners told to keep animals inside

Saturday, 04 January 2014 08:42 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis officials are warning pet owners to keep their animals indoors during the approaching cold or face possible animal cruelty allegations.

Forecasts say the St. Louis region could see temperatures of 10 degrees below zero Sunday night and Monday night. The region is also expected to get up to a foot of snow over the weekend.

The Post-Dispatch reports that the city will send search teams out that will look for people who don't have a warm place to sleep, but they'll also look for animals left outdoors. Police are also using extra officers to help look for animals. Chief Sam Dotson says owners will be cited for cruelty to animals.
