The jobless rates in Missouri and Illinois are moving in opposite directions.

Despite adding 4,600 jobs in May, Missouri's rate climbed to 6.8 percent from 6.6 percent in April. For the first time in several months, the government sector added jobs.

In Illinois, the unemployment rate fell in May to 9.1 percent. It was the second straight monthly drop after a series of increases earlier this year. State officials says that May's decrease was due in part to gains in construction employment.

Illinois' jobless rate still remains much higher than the 7.6 nationwide unemployment rate for May that was reported earlier this month.

Missouri town threatened by floodwaters

DUTCHTOWN, Mo. (AP) - Residents of tiny Dutchtown can breathe easier.

Rising floodwaters threatened the southeast Missouri town for the second time this spring, prompting vigorous sandbagging. The Mississippi River crested last week, and now the waters are receding.

The Southeast Missourian reports that on Monday, two state highways that run through the town of just over 90 residents, Missouri 74 and Missouri 25, reopened. Both had been closed about a week due to backwater flooding from what's known as the Diversion Channel.

Dutchtown frequently floods and residents there have been seeking a government buyout.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A state audit says Missouri paid more than $170,000 to child-care providers that did not open or expand their facilities as planned.

The report released Monday by Auditor Tom Schweich looks at grants provided through a Department of Social Services program during the 2010 and 2011 fiscal years.

The audit says one facility received $22,500 to open an in-home child-care facility that no children attended. Another facility got $60,000 for a center that never was built. A third facility was paid $89,000 to expand but did not add as many children as projected and then sold the facility.

The department says the program no is longer funded by the Legislature. It sent letters in April seeking repayment from two of the facilities but said the third one met contractual obligations.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — An organization representing city officials from across Missouri is urging Governor Jay Nixon to veto legislation limiting their ability to regulate cellphone towers.

The Missouri Municipal League said Friday the bill could allow placement of large cellphone towers in town squares or residential neighborhoods, which could hurt property values.

But bill supporters say their intent is to encourage the expansion of wireless Internet service across the state. They say the expansion can be hampered when companies have to comply with a hodgepodge of different local regulations that sometimes can be costly.

A Nixon spokesman declined to say whether the governor has any concerns about the bill, noting only that it will receive a thorough review.
