   The votes are in, and billionaire businessman Bruce Rauner has won the GOP nomination for Illinois governor.  Rauner overcame a late surge from State Senator Kirk Dillard to capture the nomination.  State Senator Bill Brady and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford had conceded defeat shortly after the polls closed.  
   If elected in November, Rauner has said he'll model his administration after Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker, who championed anti-union legislation. 
   As expected, Rauner willl face incumbent Governor Pat Quinn who easily won the Democratic nomination over challenger Tio Hardiman.
   There were no real surprises in any of the local races Tuesday.
   U.S. Representative Rodney Davis turned back a nationally watched GOP challenge from former Miss America Erika Harold to remain his party's pick for the District 13 congressional seat.  The Taylorville Republican now faces a November showdown with former Madison County Judge Ann Callis in a race that's being heavily targeted by the National Democratic Party.  Callis defeated George Gollin and David Green for the Democratic nod.
 
   There were several other primary races for congressional seats:  
   In District 3, Sharon Brannigan took the Republican nomination over Diane Harris.
   In District 4, incumbent Democrat Luis Gutierrez easily beat challengers Alexandra Eidenberg and Jorge Zavala to retain the party's nomination.
   In District 8, Republican voters overwhelmingly picked Larry Kaifesh over Manju Goel.
   In District 9, Susanne Atanus edged David Earl Williams for the GOP nod.
   In District 11, Darlene Senger defeated three candidates for the Republican nomination, including strong challenges from Chris Balkema and Bert Miller. 
   In District 14, Democrat Dennis Anderson bested John Hosta for the nomination.
   In District 16, incumbent Republican Adam Kinzinger easily overcame a challenge from David Hale.
   In District 18, Darrel Miller won the Democratic nomination over Rob Mellon.
 
   Tom Cross defeated Bob Grogan for the GOP nomination for State Treasurer. Cross will take on Democratic state Sen. Michael Frerichs of Champaign in the November general election.

Tuesday, 18 March 2014 03:21 Published in Local News

   It looks like the search for a missing Jefferson County man is over after a body was found near Barnhart Monday afternoon.

   Sheriff Glenn Boyer says the body of a white man was discovered at about 4:30 p.m. in a drainage ditch near Catlin Drive and Old State Road M.  Jefferson County investigators aren't releasing the identity of the man, but family members say it is Dale Leija.  

   The 36 year old had last been seen leaving a Barnhart convenience store on March 9th.  

   Police say there are no obvious signs of foul play, but the investigation is ongoing.

Caseyville board to vote on police chief's fate

Tuesday, 18 March 2014 02:48 Published in Local News

   The back and forth controversy surrounding Caseyville Police Chief Jose Alvarez may not end with Wednesday night's board meeting.  That's when board members are expected to vote on whether or not to fire the chief.

   Alvarez has already been fire twice by the mayor, and reinstated once by the village board, and once by a judge.  He tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he plans to appeal if the board does fire him.  

   Alvarez contends that local radio personality Bob Romanik used his influence to get him fired in retaliation for the chief's recommendation that Romanik's son, probationary patrolman Steve Romanik, be dismissed.  

   The elder Romanik says Alvarez went after his son in retaliation for his own on-air criticism of the chief.
