   The search for a missing a 7 year old Effingham County, Illinois girl will continue overnight.  

   Authorities and hundreds of volunteers have been looking for Willow Long since she disappeared from her Watson, Illinois home on Sunday.  The Effingham County Sheriff's Department has sent the volunteers home for the night so that an Illinois State Police Flare Plane, which detects heat, won't pick up false readings during the overnight search.  

   Willow is about four-feet tall and weighs just 46 pounds. She has shoulder-length red hair and was wearing a long purple t-shirt as a nightgown. Willow's mother says she checked on the kids Sunday morning before taking a nap. When she woke up, Willow was gone.

   The Effingham County Sheriff's Department is coordinating the search and investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities at 217-342-2101.

Illinois lawmakers are criticizing the cost of renovations at the state capitol. The price tag for the upgrades in Springfield are approaching $50-million. The Chicago Sun Times reports the cost includes $80-thousand sculptures and chandeliers and $670-thousand copper-plated wooden doors. Democrats and Republicans alike are now questioning the bidding process and Republican Representative Jim Durkin says, "I'm embarrassed to say that this went on without anyone's knowledge that I'm aware of. And we have some egg on our face." The renovation is being funded by construction bonds that were part of a $31-billion capital construction plan approved by the Legislature.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Recent turmoil at Saint Louis University between its longtime president and students and faculty critics has given way to hope and optimism as the Jesuit school seeks its first new leader in more than a quarter-century.

The Rev. Lawrence Biondi presided over a 42 percent student body increase, a near doubling of full-time faculty and nearly $1 billion worth of new construction since his 1987 inauguration. Critics say he also led by fear and intimidation, stifling dissent and alienating campus members who called for his resignation.

Biondi announced his retirement in May and escalated the timetable with a September 1st departure for a one-year sabbatical. SLU must now consider whether to again hire a priest for its top job or look outside religious circles for a lay leader.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — An adviser to the Reverend Martin Luther King will speak at a Southeast Missouri State University dinner honoring the late civil rights leader.

The Cape Girardeau school says Clarence B. Jones helped write King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech while serving as his political adviser, counsel and draft speechwriter. Today, Jones is a visiting professor at the University of San Francisco and scholar writer in residence at the Martin Luther King Junior Research and Education Institute at Stanford University.

Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker previously was scheduled to speak at the King dinner. But Booker is currently campaigning for the U.S. Senate.

Tickets for the January 22nd dinner at Southeast Missouri State go on sale in December.
