CHICAGO (AP) - Three more health insurance carriers are giving Illinois customers who signed up in December more time to make their first payments.
 
   Land of Lincoln Health has extended its payment deadline to Jan. 31 for people signed up for plans with coverage effective Jan. 1.
 
   Aetna customers now have until Jan. 14 to pay their first premium for January coverage. Coventry customers have until Jan. 17.
 
   Earlier this week, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois extended its deadline to Jan. 30 and Humana pushed its cutoff to Jan. 31.
 
   It's the latest in a string of deadline extensions for people buying insurance under President Barack Obama's health care law. An original New Year's Eve payment deadline fell by the wayside after the technical problems of the federal insurance shopping website HealthCare.gov.

PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) - A California man has been sentenced to 19 years in prison after about 13.3 pounds of cocaine were found in his vehicle in northwest Missouri.
 
Platte County prosecutor Eric Zahnd announced Friday that 37-year-old Marcos Gonzalez, of Stockton, Calif., was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty in October to first-degree drug trafficking. Zahnd says the cocaine was valued at $600,000.
 
In April 2013, a Platte County deputy stopped Gonzalez's U-Haul van for a routine traffic violation. While searching the van, the deputy found heat sealer and rubber bands, which Zahnd says are commonly used to package narcotics and bulk cash.  The deputy found the cocaine inside the bottom lining of three black suitcases.

As hard as it has been for residents to navigate area streets in the wake of last weekend's storm, first responders have also been challenged to answer calls.  

St. Louis City Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson tweeted his pride in the way his personnel handled the adverse conditions.

The Chief saying he "tips his helmet" to the members of the City of St Louis Fire & EMS Department who handled approximately 24-hundred calls, roughly 600 per day, during the four days of brutal temperatures.  

Firefighters responded to 66 building fires during that time and the Chief says, "Your dedication and iron-willed tenacity in the harshest of conditions did not go unnoticed by me or the citizens of the City of St Louis. Again, thank you for just doing what you do every day."

Missouri's top law enforcement official wants the owner of a St. Louis landfill to provide more details about a underground smoldering fire at the site which could threaten radioactive waste buried nearby.  

On Thursday, Attorney General Chris Koster asked the St. Louis County Circuit Court to order Republic Services to provide additional monitoring data related to the Bridgeton Landfill.  

Koster says the state has asked Republic Services to supply data and maps showing the concentration of carbon monoxide at various locations in an effort to track movement of the fire.

He says the company has not supplied comprehensive data for the north part of the site, nearest the nuclear material.  

A spokesman says the company expects to provide additional monitoring data that it believes will validate that the site is safe.
