Durbin lauds flood-insurance bill's Senate passage

Friday, 31 January 2014 03:49 Published in Local News
   EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin says the Senate's passage of a bill that would delay premium hikes for years for buyers of federal flood insurance is good news for areas along the Mississippi River.
   Durbin cheered Thursday's advance of the measure that would put off huge premium increases that are supposed to phase in next year under new, updated government flood maps.
   Those maps are of concern in southwestern Illinois from Alton south to Columbia, where the Army Corps of Engineers believes many levies are in need of millions of dollars in upgrades.
   Officials in those districts are scrambling to make the fixes to avoid having them downgraded to functionally useless. That would require thousands of homeowners with federally backed mortgages to buy flood insurance.
 

Mizzou WR friends takes blame for pot found in car

Friday, 31 January 2014 03:38 Published in Sports
   SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Two men arrested along with Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham have told police the pound of marijuana found in their car did not belong to the star football player.
   Criminal charges have not been filed after the Springfield native and two friends were arrested in January on suspicion of felony drug distribution. Police say they found the pot and other drug paraphernalia in the trunk of a Jeep Cherokee driven by John McDaniel.
   The Springfield News-Leader reports a probable cause statement shows that Patrick Prouty said he owned the pot but said it was for personal use. McDaniel said he had hidden one gram of marijuana in the car's glove box.
   Green-Beckham was charged in October 2012 with marijuana possession in Columbia and later pleaded guilty to second-degree trespassing.
