UPDATE: 64 reopens near Fairview Heights, IL

Monday, 17 March 2014 12:59 Published in Local News

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - UPDATE: Authorities have reopened 64 near 159 in Illinois.

 

EARLIER: Still no timeline as to when officials will reopen lanes on I-64 near Fairview Heights.

 

Sometime after 11 AM, a semi truck hit a power pole, knocking down the lines onto the road. Authorities have closed all lanes of 64, in both directions near Route 159. On ramps in the area are also closed.

 

Drivers are being told to avoid the area until the situation changes. 

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Historians know where Solomon Northup was born, where he lived and where he worked. They know whom he married and how many children he had. They know he played the fiddle and spent 12 years enslaved in the South before being freed.

What historians don't know about the author of "12 Years A Slave" is when and how he died and where he's buried. It's a lingering mystery in the final chapter of the life of the 19th-century free-born African-American whose compelling account of enforced slavery was made into the Oscar-winning film of the same title.

The accolades have sparked new interest in Northup's story, which was little known until recent years even in the upstate New York communities where he spent most of his life.

White House urges Putin to back down in Crimea

Sunday, 16 March 2014 09:14 Published in National News

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says that if Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn't back down in Crimea, he will face penalties from the West that will hurt the Russian economy and diminish Moscow's influence in the world.

White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer also says supporting the new Ukrainian government "in every way possible" is at the top of the Obama's administration's priority list.

But action on $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine is on hold because Congress is on a break now.

Pfeiffer tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that Putin has a choice: "Is he going to continue to further isolate himself, further hurt his economy, further diminish Russian influence in the world, or is he going to do the right thing?"
