Food stamp cards back online in Illinois

Sunday, 13 October 2013 09:11 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) — Shoppers in Illinois and other states were unable to use their food stamp debit cards because of an outage at the vendor that processes the payments on Saturday.

Xerox Corporation said Saturday night that access to food stamp systems has been restored in 17 states that were affected by a temporary outage.

People in Ohio, Michigan and Texas were unable to use food stamp debit-style cards for hours on Saturday. Xerox said a routine test of backup systems resulted in a temporary system failure.

Xerox Spokeswoman Jennifer Wasmer said in an email that it took time to restore the system and make sure it was fully functional.

Police still search for 9 boys from NM youth camp

Saturday, 12 October 2013 09:58 Published in National News

HILLSBORO, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say the search for nine teenagers reported missing from a New Mexico ranch for troubled youth will continue Saturday despite statements from the facility's attorney saying the boys were being returned to their parents.

State police said in a statement Saturday that they have information that one or more children have been returned to their parents but until they "can physically confirm their well-being" the search will continue and the Amber Alert issued for the teens stands.

A search warrant was executed Friday at the Tierra Blanca High Country Youth Program after allegations of beatings surfaced. The teens weren't at the 30,000-acre compound in Sierra County and neither was program operator Scott Chandler, a person of interest in the case.

Chandler denied the teenagers were harmed.

Statue of Liberty to reopen to public Sunday

Saturday, 12 October 2013 09:56 Published in National News

NEW YORK (AP) — The Statue of Liberty will reopen to the public Sunday after the state of New York agreed to shoulder the costs of running the site during the federal government shutdown.

Ferry trips to Liberty Island National Park from Manhattan's Battery Park will resume at 9 a.m. Tickets go on sale at 8:30 a.m.

A spokesman for ferry operator Statue Cruises said Saturday that it's still unclear when service might resume from the New Jersey side of the Hudson River.

Statue Cruises marketing director Rafael Abreu says the company is delighted with the reopening. He says they had a 60 percent reduction in business since the shutdown.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Friday that the state would pay about $61,600 a day to reopen Liberty Island National Park.
