Madison County prosecutor lobbies for cupcakes

TROY, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois prosecutor is lobbying for a girl whose home-based cupcake business was shut down because she didn't have a commercial kitchen.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons says he wants to amend a state law on sixth-grader Chloe Stirling's behalf. The two-year-old law allows people to make certain food items in a home kitchen to sell to the public if the food was to be sold at a farmers' market.
The girl had been selling her cupcakes to raise money to buy a car someday. But the county's health department shut down her operation last month after concluding her kitchen wasn't a commercial one requiring a permit and inspection.
The county's public health administrator insists existing laws are "excellent."

Alton, Illinois police are reminding residents, do not bring concealed weapons to this weekend's Block Party.

Despite the Madison County State's Attorney issuing new guidelines on conceal carry this week, the police will arrest anyone found with a concealed weapon. State's Attorney Tom Gibbons agreed with this weekend's prohibition. New rules from Gibbons stated that people in Madison County can have a loaded gun in their car or person if they have a firearm owner's ID card.

But, that is not the case for this weekend's event.
