   The FBI is investigating a former metro-east official accused of embezzling more than $750,000 over the last 10 years.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that an audit by Alton accounting firm Kenneth E. Loy & Co., LLC has determined that former Moro Township Supervisor Donald Flack embezzled more than $100,000 last year alone.  But exactly how much was taken won't be known until the forensic audit is completed in September.  

   Auditors say charges against Flack are likely to be filed soon.

   Flack resigned May 14th when trustees confronted him about the missing funds.  

   Moro Township covers a rural area of Madison County northeast of Alton.

FULTON, Mo. (AP) - A central Missouri nuclear power plant is back on line slightly more than three weeks after a small fire.

Ameren Missouri said Monday its Callaway Energy Center near Fulton has resumed operation.

The Callaway County reactor supplies about 20 percent of the electricity Ameren sells to its 1.2 million customers. Other Ameren plants made up for the lost power while the nuclear plant was offline.

The reactor shut down automatically the night of July 26 when power cables that connect the plant to the electric grid shorted, causing the small fire.

Ameren said the arc was caused by a ventilation louver that dislodged and moved close to the cables. The utility says inspections showed no need to replace major equipment.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn's administration says the statewide average workers' compensation rate has dropped 4.5 percent.

Officials say the figure set by a national rating agency continues a downward trend that has saved Illinois employers $315 million in insurance premium costs since 2011.

The National Council on Compensation Insurance issued the figure Monday. Insurance companies often use the number to figure workers' compensation premiums.

James Stephens is deputy director of the Department of Insurance. He says the drop reflects an overall 13.3 percent decrease in the rate in the last three years.

Quinn's office says the decrease is because of a money-saving workers' compensation reform package the Democratic governor signed into law in 2011.

The rate changes take effect Jan. 1 if the Insurance Department accepts them.

Drivers will soon be able to speed up a bit on some highways. ]

Governor Pat Quinn signed a bill that raises the speed limit on rural interstates to 70 miles an hour. The new law takes effect on January 1 and raises the limit from 65 miles an hour. Illinois joins 36 other states that have at least some parts of highways with speed limits of at least 70.

The bill also lowers the limit for excessive speeding by 5 miles per hour. The more severe penalty now kicks in when drivers exceed the speed limit by 26 mph. The measure was opposed by the Illinois Department of Transportation and State Police.
