A Superfund site in St. Louis that has been a concern for decades is about to be cleaned up.

Federal and local officials gathered to announce a $30 million cleanup of the old Carter Carburetor site. No public money will be used. The remediation is funded by Carter Building Inc. and ACF Industries Inc., a successor to the company that owned the carburetor factory. Work is expected to start by the end of summer.

The site has been an eyesore for decades and Mayor Slay had this message for neighbors, "I want to thank the residents of the neighborhood for your determination to keep all of focused on this issue and being a part of our approach to make this day become a reality."

Pollution is the largest problem heading into the cleanup effor. The Soil contains cancer-causing chemicals and the buildings contain asbestos.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A federal judge is rejecting a legal bid by gun-rights advocates who wanted people to be able to immediately carry firearms in Illinois under the state's new concealed carry law.

East St. Louis U.S. District Judge William Stiehl threw out the lawsuit filed by Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association, siding with the state and saying the legal action is moot.

Shepard and the rifle group had argued it was unconstitutional to make people wait for the permit process to be outlined under the new concealed carry law that lawmakers passed July 9.

Illinois was the last state in the nation to ban the practice.

Illinois State Police have 180 days to set up a program before accepting applications, plus another 90 days to process the forms.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn is making a series of stops in central Illinois.

Monday's visits mark the second round of trips the governor's made to the region following criticism that his frequent Chicago focus might draw a downstate challenger in the 2014 Democratic primary.

Quinn started the day welcoming the Stanley Cup to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum before heading to Bradley University in Peoria, where he announced a construction grant. Quinn is also scheduled to spend time talking about the construction grant Augustana College in Rock Island before going to Rockford, where he's expected to talk about a clean water initiative.

Quinn is facing a primary challenge from fellow Chicagoan Bill Daley.

Quinn's spokeswoman has said the governor was previously tied up in Springfield because of pension reform.
