ST. LOUIS (AP) - City efforts to force repairs at hundreds of deteriorating St. Louis homes remain stymied as the property owner's identity is shrouded in mystery.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Urban Assets LLC holding company owns more than 200 distressed houses on the city's north side. Many have multiple code violations, unpaid fines and unpaid tax penalties.

The holding company's registered agent says he is bound by confidentiality to not disclose the owner's identity. The city is trying to sell dozens of Urban Assets' houses at nuisance property auctions after the company failed to pay property taxes. Only one has sold so far.

A man called Outlaw is headed to prison for his role in two violent crimes.

Stanley "Outlaw" Carter was sentenced in federal court to 20 years behind bars. In 2008 Carter was first involved in an armed home invasion and stole a large amount of marijuana. Later in the year he was involved in a shooting that left two men dead.

A judge said both of the crimes were related to a drug trafficking operation and the fruits of a federal investigation.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A federal appeals court will hear arguments Oct. 3 over a push by gun rights advocates to let Illinois residents immediately tote firearms in public under the state's fledgling concealed-carry law.

Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association want the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to intervene after failing to sway a federal judge in East St. Louis to allow immediate concealed carry.

The Illinois Legislature passed the last-in-the-nation concealed-carry law July 9 against Gov. Pat Quinn's objections, giving Illinois State Police 180 days to set up the permit process and an additional 90 days to process applications.

Shepard and the rifle group consider that "foot-dragging."

The state counters the legal challenge is moot, and that the permitting process should be allowed to run its course.

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn says the outline of a pension reform proposal from a bipartisan panel is "positive indeed."

However, the Chicago Democrat was less clear about whether he's fully behind it or not, saying he wants to see final details.

He told reporters Sunday after an unrelated event that the panel tasked with coming up with a way to address the state's nearly $100 billion pension problem has made progress.

Pensions have been Quinn's top issue. He recently halted lawmakers' pay after lawmakers missed another one of his deadlines to solve the issue.

The pension committee is considering a plan that would, among other things, end automatic 3 percent cost-of-living increases for retirees. Increases would instead be linked to the rate of inflation.

Committee members say the details are preliminary.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri lawmaker arrested for possessing marijuana says he is resigning from a Democratic campaign position but not from office.

Rep. Jeremy LaFaver said Monday he is stepping down as chairman of the House Democratic Victory Committee, which raises money for House candidates.

But LaFaver told The Associated Press he is not resigning from the House, because he believes he can still be an effective lawmaker.

The Missouri Republican Party has said LaFaver should resign.

LaFaver was arrested Sunday after a traffic stop in Boone County for possessing a marijuana pipe and up to 1.2 ounces of marijuana. He has apologized for the incident.

LaFaver sponsored an unsuccessful bill this year that would have lowered penalties for possessing small amounts of marijuana.
