   A federal appeals court has temporarily halted plans to resume domestic horse slaughter.  The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver Monday issued a temporary injunction barring the Department of Agriculture from inspecting the plants.  

   Slaughterhouses in Missouri and New Mexico had hoped to start up as soon as this week after a federal judge in Albuquerque on Friday threw out a lawsuit by The Humane Society of the United States and other animal protection groups.  

   The groups filed an immediate appeal and won the emergency injunction.

   The order continues the on-again, off-again plans to resume domestic horse slaughter six years after  Congress cut funding for inspectors, forcing the last big slaughterhouses to close.

Kraft mulls expanding Granite City plant

GRANITE CITY, Ill. (AP) - Kraft Foods is weighing whether to spend $40 million to expand a plant if Granite City and state provide about $400,000 to widen a road in front of the site.

The Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis reports the plant produces Capri Sun and Kool-Aid beverages.

As part of the project, the Illinois Department of Transportation would provide $300,000 for the road widening that Kraft calls necessary to allow trucks to turn into the plant.

Granite City Economic Development Director Jonathan Ferry says the matter may go before the city council sometime between April and June.

The Granite City facility became part of Kraft in 1991.
