 CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A Southeast Missouri State University building will remain closed through mid-August after a rooftop fire.

 

   The university made the announcement Thursday after insurers and engineers assessed the damage that Monday's fire caused to Robert A. Dempster Hall. The building houses business programs and some administrative offices.

 

   The university said in a news release that portions of the building sustained roof, water and smoke damage. Vice president for finance and administration, Kathy Mangels, says the first priority is to get classrooms ready for the fall semester.

 

   During the closure, students and staff have been moved to alternative locations.

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - The state of Illinois is amplifying its argument that a federal judge reject a push by gun-rights advocates who want to be allowed to publicly carry firearms immediately, rather than waiting months under Illinois' new concealed carry law.

Under the law passed last week, Illinois State Police have about six months to set up a concealed-carry program before accepting applications. Police then have 90 days to process the forms.

Gun-rights advocate Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association say that's unconstitutionally too long and want an East St. Louis U.S. District Judge to allow immediate concealed carry.

But Attorney General Lisa Madigan's office argued in a filing Thursday that Shepard needs to file a new complaint spelling out why the law's time allowances are unreasonable.

CHICAGO (AP) - The unemployment rate in Illinois increased slightly in June while manufacturers and local governments cut more jobs than they added.

The Illinois Department of Employment Security says Thursday that unemployment increased to 9.2 percent last month. That was up from 9.1 percent in May. June's figure ended two months of decreasing unemployment.

Employers around the state added a net 5,400 non-farm jobs for the month. And department Director Jay Rowell says the net 9,000 jobs added by private-sector employers is an encouraging sign that they're optimistic about the future.

Meanwhile, manufacturers cut a net 1,600 jobs for the month. Illinois' manufacturing had been one of the state's strongest employment sectors until recent months.

Construction firms added 5,400 jobs in June.

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Almost 10,000 Missouri consumers are getting checks under a settlement with shoe maker Skechers USA.

   Attorney General Chris Koster says Missouri is one of 43 states that participated with the federal government in a case alleging that Skechers deceptively advertised its toning shoes.

   The settlement was announced in May 2012. A court-appointed administrator started sending out the restitution checks late last week.

   Koster says 9,666 consumers will receive a total of $716,493. The majority of people will receive checks of about $34, but some will get more if they bought multiple pairs of shoes or other equipment.

   The lawsuits challenged Skechers' claim that its shoes could help people lose weight and strengthen muscles. Skechers admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement.

Due to an artist cancellation, the Fair Saint Louis Foundation has canceled its Friday, July 19 Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concert event. The Foundation received a call from the management of K’NAAN, the evening’s scheduled headliner, Tuesday night, informing that due to a personal family matter he would not be able to perform Friday. 

“Our thoughts are with K’NAAN,” said Bob Ciapciak, chairman of the 2013 Fair Saint Louis and Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concerts. “We worked quickly with several national headliners but given a very short timeframe were not able to secure another act. We look forward to the Saturday, July 20 concert with headliner NEEDTOBREATHE, which will be a great performance to wrap up our 2013 Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concerts.”

All activities on Friday are canceled, including opening acts, DJ Wood and Joia.

“It’s been a great July of free entertainment both under the Arch with Fair Saint Louis and at Soldiers Memorial last weekend, and we look forward to seeing a great St. Louis crowd for our final event of the summer this Saturday so come join the summer celebration,” said Ciapciak.
