PHILADELPHIA - AP - Family members say retired boxer Tony Martin was fatally shot in an altercation with a visitor at one of his rental properties in Philadelphia.

Police say the 52-year-old Martin, a former welterweight, was shot during an argument at the home in the city’s Hunting Park section on Friday. Martin’s niece, Robyn Peete, says that her uncle was a good landlord and longtime postal worker and that the altercation apparently involved a person visiting his tenant.

Martin’s family is pleading for the gunman to come forward.

Martin was 34-6-1 in his boxing career, with 12 knockouts. He is a native of St. Louis who moved to Philadelphia to train in 1985. He lost his last fight, a decision to Julio Cesar Chavez in Las Vegas, in 1997.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The federal government is charging Illinois with securities fraud, claiming it misled investors about the health of its pension system.

Gov. Pat Quinn's office said Monday that the state has agreed to settle the Securities and Exchange Commission case. Assistant budget director Abdon Pallasch (AB'-dun PAL-lish) says the state is promising better financial disclosures but admitted no wrongdoing.

The case revolved around more than $2 billion of municipal bonds sold from 2005 to early 2009 to pay state obligations to public-employee pension programs.

The SEC charged that the state did not adequately inform investors that a 50-year funding plan adopted in 1995 did not adequately cover pension liabilities.

The five pensions systems are now $97 billion in debt and a solution is lawmakers' top priority.

Nurses from Saint Louis University and Des Peres hospitals took to the streets in Midtown Monday morning. About 200 nurses marched up and down Grand Avenue in front of SLU Hospital. Part of National Nurses United, the RNs are calling on Tenet Healthcare Corporation to renew and extent their contracts. Tenet Heathcare owns and operates SLU and Des Peres hospitals. SLU nurse Aaron Southworth tells KTRS that more nurses means better heath care.

"Making the patient/staffing ratio better will benefit all nurses, it will benefit patients, and it will benefit the hospital as a whole," said Southworth.

Among other concerns, the nurses want management to hire lift teams for patients. They say nurses have some of the highest rates of back injuries from moving patients. The nurses also expressed concerns when it comes supplies, staffing, and overall policy matters.

In a statement released to KTRS News, SLU says they will continue to negotiate with the nurses in good faith and they hope to reach an agreement that's beneficial to both sides.

REPUBLIC, Mo. (AP) - A southwest Missouri high school teacher says the state should add bass fishing as a high school sport.

Jim Huson, a teacher at Republic High School, says a proposal to add the sport will be on the spring ballot for high school administrators. He says bass fishing would become a sport if it gets approval from 50 percent, plus one, of the administrators.

KY3-TV reports approval would allow students to fish for state and national championships.

If approved, schools could have up to two boats with two students fishing in each boat. Teams would have a five-fish limit, and the team with the five heaviest fish wins.
