New student enrollment creates dorm crunch at SIU

Wednesday, 07 August 2013 09:00 Published in Local News

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Administrators at Southern Illinois University are preparing for a record number of new students arriving on campus when fall classes begin later this month. But that's creating a housing crunch at the Carbondale school.

 

   WSIL-TV says new student enrollment is on pace to beat 2008's record, thanks to an anticipated 10 percent increase in new students.

 

   But SIU spokesman Rod Sievers that means there are more students than beds.

 

   The school is building new dorms, but they're years from being completed. And three of the oldest residence halls on campus were torn down.

 

   That means the school scrambling to put more students in each dorm room.

 

   Administrators attribute the enrollment increase with the success of a marketing campaign that's helped boost declining enrollment.

Flooding postpones Nixon's trip to Waynesville

Wednesday, 07 August 2013 08:17 Published in Local News

WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Threats of further flooding prompted Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to postpone a trip to flood-damaged Waynesville Wednesday that had been planned to discuss emergency response efforts.

 

   The governor's office announced in a news release that the event was postponed because state and local emergency management workers are responding to continued dangerous flooding in south-central Missouri.

   Rain was falling again Wednesday morning in much of south-central Missouri.

   A child was killed and several homes and businesses damaged after heavy rain Monday night and Tuesday morning soaked Waynesville, a south-central Missouri town near Fort Leonard Wood. A search resumed Wednesday for a woman who is believed to be the child's mother.

Judge says Clemons failed to establish innocence

Wednesday, 07 August 2013 07:52 Published in Local News

A new development in the case of Reggie Clemons, who was convicted of raping and murdering two sisters on the Chain of Rocks bridge in 1991. Judge Michael Manners said Clemons failed to establish his innocence during a special hearing in the case. However, Manners also said prosecutors improperly suppressed evidence and that police coerced Clemons into confessing. Clemons pleaded the 5th Amendment more than 30 times during a hearing in September. The Missouri Supreme Court will now make the final ruling. They can decide on anything from keeping Clemons on death row to throwing out the case.
