   WADSWORTH, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities say a school bus carrying more than two dozen elementary school children has overturned in northern Illinois.

   Television footage from the scene near the village of Wadsworth shows the bus on its side, with two mangled cars nearby. Debris was scattered in an adjacent farm field.

   Lake County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sgt. Sara Balmes (bahl-MEHS') told The Associated Press that there was no immediate word on injuries, although scores of emergency vehicles surrounded the wreck.

   The bus was taking 25 children to Newport Elementary School, which is about 45 miles north of Chicago.

   The accident happened around 8 a.m. about a mile from the school, which has some 400 students in kindergarten through 5th grade.

   Cuts in the classroom are coming to the East St. Louis School District. Teachers layoffs were announced  during Thursday night's packed school board meeting.  

   In all, 69 teachers in District 189 will lose their jobs.  Five elementary school principals and two middle school principals will also be cut.  

   East St. Louis is just the latest in a long list of metro-east school districts forced to make the cuts because of state and local budget issues.

   WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is proposing cuts to Social Security as an attempt to compromise with Republicans on the budget.

   A senior administration official says the budget Obama will offer to Congress next Wednesday would reduce the deficit by $1.8 trillion over 10 years. It includes a revised inflation adjustment called "chained CPI" that would curb cost-of-living increases in Social Security and other benefit programs.

   The senior administration official stressed it is not the president's preferred approach but a compromise proposal to try to reach a long-term budget deal. Obama first made the offer to House Speaker John Boehner last year.

   The official spoke on a condition of anonymity since the budget has yet to be released. Technically, the administration actually would be limiting the growth of Social Security.

   A Jennings woman is in serious but stable condition after she crashed her car into a north city apartment building Thursday night. It happened just before midnight at Martin Luther King and Burd.

   The crash punched a hole in the Arlington Grove Jeffery L. Boyd building. Crews spent most of Friday morning cleaning up the mess.  

   St.Louis police say the 33 year old woman had been speeding, blowing through two stop signs along Dr. King,  before swerving to avoid a stopped car.  That's when she lost control, hit two stop signs, a light pole and a metal trash can before crashing into the building.

   Police say no one inside the building was hurt.
