Missouri tornado drill rescheduled for Thursday

Monday, 03 March 2014 16:11 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri statewide tornado drill scheduled for Tuesday is being pushed back two days because of the recent winter weather and other factors.
 
The Missouri State Emergency Management Agency says the drill will now be at 1:30 p.m. Thursday. The drill is part of Missouri 2014 Severe Weather Awareness Week, which runs through Friday.
 
 March typically is the start of the tornado season and the drill will include the sounding of warning sirens. Residents are encouraged to seek shelter during the drill just as they would if an actual tornado was imminent.
   
 
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois Supreme Court has ordered that four lawsuits challenging Illinois' new pension reform law be consolidated.
 
The March 3 order transfers the case filed by a group of retired teachers in Cook County Circuit Court to Sangamon County Circuit Court, where the three other cases were filed. The court says all of the cases will be heard together in Springfield.
   
Each of the groups' lawsuits share the common claim that the new pension reform plan violates the state constitution, which says benefits may not be diminished or impaired.
 
Illinois' five public-retirement systems had a $100 billion unfunded liability when the Legislature passed the pension reform measure in December.
 
The bill saves an estimated $145 billion, largely by cutting benefits for employees and retirees.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Chicago man has been convicted of several federal charges for forcing two teenage girls into prostitution.
Reginald Williams was convicted Monday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis following a four-day trial.
Police in Collinsville, Ill., learned in September 2012 that photos of a missing 16-year-old were included on the website backpage.com, implying she was available for sex. The website said the girl was 20 but police confirmed she was 16 at the time.
Authorities learned another minor female was believed to be with the 16-year-old at a St. Louis County hotel. Williams was arrested at the hotel, where police found both girls.   Sentencing for Williams is May 30.
