Illinois State Senator supports Sunday car sales

Wednesday, 20 November 2013 09:17 Published in Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -  An Illinois state senator says he wants to end a long-standing ban on Sunday automobile sales.

Sugar Grove Republican Jim Oberweis tells the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers that he wants to introduce legislation next year allowing Sunday vehicle sales.

The law requiring dealerships to close on Sundays went into effect in 1983. It was supported by car sellers, who said it would cut overhead, level the playing field and give employees a day off.

Violators can face a $1,500 fine.  Oberweis says the policy is "anti-consumer," and adds "it doesn't make a lot of sense."  But the president of Illinois Automobile Dealers Association says "the majority" of the industry wants the law to remain on the books.

 

 

Blues too much for Sabres 4-1

Tuesday, 19 November 2013 22:38 Published in Sports

 

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Brenden Morrow scored twice and the St. Louis Blues continued their mastery of the Buffalo Sabres with a 4-1 win Tuesday night.

Vladimir Tarasenko and Magnus Paajarvi also scored and Jaroslav Halak made 23 saves for the Blues, who have won 13 of 15 games against Buffalo since 1999.

Tyler Ennis scored the Sabres' goal just 10 seconds into the game, as Buffalo lost at home after consecutive home wins last week.

The Blues' league-best power play stayed productive, scoring in their fourth straight game. It's a stretch that's seen the Blues go 6 of 17 with the man advantage.

St. Louis is 8-1 in its past nine trips to Buffalo. The Blues improved to 7-2 against Eastern Conference teams, outscoring opponents 31-17.

Though the Blues outshot the Sabres 31-24, they got off to a slow start.

After a dump into the Blues zone off the opening faceoff, Ville Leino stripped the puck from Jay Bouwmeester below the left faceoff circle and found Ennis, who beat Halak with a low shot to give the Sabres an early lead.

It took less than a minute for the Blues to tie it, as Morrow pounced on a rebound and beat Ryan Miller at 1:09 of the first.

Tarasenko scored a power-play goal with 36 seconds to play in the first period on a pass from T.J. Oshie, who collected his own blocked shot.

Buffalo has been outscored 31-4 in the first period this season.

Morrow's second of the game came when Cody McCormick lost the puck behind the Buffalo net. Chris Stewart picked up the puck and passed to Morrow, who had raced into the high slot for a one-timer.

It was Morrow's first multi-goal game since April 17, when he scored twice against Montreal. Stewart had two assists.

Paajarvi added his first goal for the Blues when he beat Miller below his blocker with just over six minutes played in the third.

St. Louis' top-ranked road penalty kill stopped both of Buffalo's power plays.

Defenseman Mike Weber returned to the Sabres' lineup after missing 10 games with a hand injury suffered Oct. 25 against Florida.

NOTES: Blues C Patrik Berglund missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury. ... The Sabres sent D Rasmus Ristolainen, LW Johan Larsson and C Mikhail Grigorenko to their American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester on Tuesday. ... Buffalo also sent D Nikita Zadorov to the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.

UPDATE: Franklin Executed

Tuesday, 19 November 2013 16:48 Published in Local News

   Confessed white supremacist serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin has been executed after two federal stays were vacated just after midnight Wednesday.

   U.S. District Court Judge Nanette Laughery ruled late Tuesday afternoon that a lawsuit filed by Franklin and 21 other death-row inmates challenging Missouri's execution protocol must first be resolved.

   Later in the day, a second federal judge stayed the execution, saying a defense appeal over Franklin's mental competency needs more review.

   After an appeal by Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster, the 8th circuit U.S. District Court vacated both stays. 

   Only the U.S. Supreme Court can intervene to stop Franklin's execution now.

   The 63 year old inmate was scheduled to die at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday for killing 42 year old Gerald Gordon in a sniper attack outside a suburban St. Louis synagogue in 1977.

   It was one of as many as 20 killings committed by Franklin, who targeted blacks and Jews in a cross-country killing spree from 1977 to 1980.
