LOUISIANA, Mo. (AP) - The rising Mississippi River is forcing closure of a bridge at Louisiana, Mo.

The Missouri Department of Transportation announced Friday morning that the Champ Clark Bridge on U.S. 54 would close at 7 p.m. Friday due to flooding on the bridge approach on the Illinois side.

The closure creates an inconvenience for travelers - the next nearest river crossing is at Hannibal, Mo., 35 miles to the north.

Heavy rain has caused the Mississippi, Missouri and many other Midwestern rivers to rise above their banks. Some towns are expected to see crests of more than 10 feet above flood stage by early next week.

Lousiana, MO bakery makes millionth doughnut

LOUISIANA, Mo. (AP) - Though just in business since 2006, a small doughnut shop in northeast Missouri has already topped the one million sold mark.

The Quincy (Ill.) Herald-Whig reports that Daybreak Donuts and Diner in Louisiana, Mo., recently reached the milestone. Owner Shaun Ross knows because he keeps detailed records on how many doughnuts he cuts each day on a coffee-stained spiral notebook.

When the millionth doughnut rolled around last month, it only made sense that frequent customer Kevin Tarpein be the recipient. Because Tarpein wasn't in that day due to a medical procedure, the staff delivered the chocolate-iced long john to him.
