Many teachers, students skipping snow day makeups

Sunday, 16 March 2014 09:09 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — It's payback time for all of those snow days this winter — but not for everyone.

Spring break was scheduled about this time of year for many school districts, but the brutal winter forced so many snow days that some schools are remaining in session to make up the days.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that not everyone is in attendance. Some teachers who made spring break reservations for trips are sticking with their plans. That has led to a high number of requests for substitute teachers, leaving some districts to scramble for replacements.

The scenario could crop up again at the end of the school year as schools make up for snow days.

Obama touts overhaul of rules on who gets overtime

Saturday, 15 March 2014 09:09 Published in National News

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says it's not right that businesses that treat their employers fairly can be undercut by competitors who don't.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama is promoting his plan to update rules about which workers are eligible for overtime pay. Obama says he wants to restore the principle that if you have to work more, you should earn more.

Businesses can avoid paying overtime for some workers who earn above a certain threshold. Obama says under the current rules, some salaried workers are actually paid less than the minimum wage.

In the Republican address, Rep. Bill Johnson of Ohio says seniors deserve better than what Obama's health care is delivering. He says if Obama won't help Republicans repeal the law, Obama should at least protect seniors.

Michigan man to be sentenced in Illinois ATM robbery

Saturday, 15 March 2014 09:07 Published in Local News

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — A Michigan man faces sentencing this summer after pleading guilty to charges related to his role in robbing a southwestern Illinois bank worker restocking an automated teller machine.

Twenty-two-year-old Ramsey Fakhouri of Troy near Detroit entered the guilty plea Friday in East St. Louis to a bank robbery count.

Fakhouri and an 18-year-old man from Concord, Mich., were indicted last month in connection with the February 14th holdup of a Bradford National Bank worker outside that branch in Highland, east of St. Louis.

The bank worker was unharmed, and authorities say the robbery involved the theft of nearly $26,000.

Fakhouri's co-defendant awaits trial.

Fakhouri's sentencing is scheduled for July 11th.
