SIU system to announce new president

   CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Officials are set to announce a new president the Southern Illinois University system Monday afternoon during a meeting in Edwardsville.

   Board members say nearly 100 people applied for the job.

   The new president will replace Glenn Poshard, who's retiring and plans to step down in June even though his contract expires in 2015.

   SIU has campuses Carbondale and Edwardsville, and medical and dental schools in Alton and Decater.

 CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - For the first time in more than a decade, bars in downtown Carbondale will be allowed to open on Halloween.

   City Council members voted 4-2 on Tuesday to let bars in an area known as "The Strip" operate this year. City officials say they'll allow the bars to open for business as part of a one-year experiment.

   The bars have had to shut down for the past 12 years after rioting and vandalism in the college town in far-southern Illinois.

   Councilwoman Jane Adams says she supports the change, which will allow three bars to operate.

   She says the new regulations won't lead to a "street party."

   But Mayor Joel Fritzler voted against the move. He says any Halloween mayhem could hamper development.
