Gun safety instructor accidentally shoots student

Tuesday, 13 August 2013 03:14 Published in National News

   LANCASTER, Ohio (AP) -- Police say an instructor at a central Ohio gun safety class has accidentally shot a student.

    The Columbus Dispatch reports 73 year old Terry J. Dunlap Sr. was demonstrating a handgun at a training facility on Saturday when he fired a bullet that ricocheted off a desk and into the right arm of 26 year old Michael Piemonte.

      The student says the .38 caliber bullet hit him between his elbow and armpit. He says many of the students in the class were nurses who helped stabilize him before he was transported to a Columbus hospital.

      Piemonte tells the newspaper it appears Dunlap didn't know the gun was loaded. Dunlap hasn't responded to requests for comment.

   A police report lists the shooting as accidental.

Durbin continues drumbeat for immigration reform

Tuesday, 13 August 2013 03:10 Published in Local News

   WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin is continuing his drum beat for immigration reform, saying he hopes the House of Representatives will take action this year on legislation passed by the Senate.

   The Illinois Democrat said in a round-table discussion in Wheaton on Monday he hopes to show House Republicans there is "a diverse level of support" for fixing the nation's "broken" immigration system.

   The round-table, which took place in the district of Republican Congressman Peter Roskam, included business, health, religious and community leaders.

   Durbin is one of the sponsors of legislation approved by the Senate that would provide a path to citizenship for immigrants who came to the country unlawfully. The bill also would expand access to visas for workers and graduates with advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering and math.

 

   More than 20,000 students attended classes on the first day of school in the city of St. Louis Monday.  

   Based on preliminary data, the district reports 20,055 students on the first day, down just over 200 from last year.  

   But Superintendent Dr. Kelvin Adams says the district was still enrolling students at several schools Monday and will most likely continue to do so over the next few days.  

   Monday’s attendance figures do not include more than 2,000 preschool children.  The first day of classes for SLPS students in preschool will be Monday, August 19.
