MoDOT has weekend closures on tap downtown

Friday, 31 January 2014 10:14 Published in Local News

The Missouri Department of Transportation will close all lanes of eastbound I-70 downtown between Pine Street and the Poplar Street Bridge at 6 p.m. this Sunday. Crews will be removing a retaining wall along the interstate near Walnut Street as part of preparations for the Park Over the Highway project.  

One eastbound lane on I-70 will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday. The other lane will reopen before 3 p.m. Monday, after crews make permanent pavement repairs to the right lane of eastbound I-70.

St. Clair County officials say they are not admitting any wrongdoing, but will pay up to $2,000 to each of three former county jail inmates who sued over alleged guard abuse.
County Sheriff Rick Watson tells the Belleville News-Democrat the county agreed to the payouts to save taxpayers the money it would cost to defend itself against the lawsuits.
In 2012, the trio claimed that they were among 14 inmates beaten in December 2011, four days after a fight between inmates and guards at the jail in Belleville.  
Watson says that, while he dislikes the settlements and would prefer to test the veracity of the allegations in court, he understands why the payouts were approved.

Illinois study shows poverty rate same for 50 years

Thursday, 30 January 2014 10:27 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - A new study finds Illinois' overall poverty rate is about the same as it was a half century ago.
The report released Thursday by the Chicago-based Social IMPACT Research Center says almost 15 percent of Illinois residents lived below the federal poverty line in 2012, about the same percentage as in 1960.
That's despite scores of state and federal aid programs and a dramatic drop in the number of older people in poverty.
Poverty has increased among working-age men and women, and 1 in 5 children are in poverty. It's highest among blacks and Latinos.
The report comes a day after Gov. Pat Quinn called on lawmakers to raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour and double a tax credit that helps low-income workers keep more of their earnings.
