Madison County prosecutor lobbies for cupcakes

Thursday, 13 February 2014 09:32 Published in Local News
TROY, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois prosecutor is lobbying for a girl whose home-based cupcake business was shut down because she didn't have a commercial kitchen.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons says he wants to amend a state law on sixth-grader Chloe Stirling's behalf. The two-year-old law allows people to make certain food items in a home kitchen to sell to the public if the food was to be sold at a farmers' market.
The girl had been selling her cupcakes to raise money to buy a car someday. But the county's health department shut down her operation last month after concluding her kitchen wasn't a commercial one requiring a permit and inspection.
The county's public health administrator insists existing laws are "excellent."
 
 

Missouri unemployment benefits may be trimmed

Thursday, 13 February 2014 09:19 Published in Local News

Missouri lawmakers are considering a measure that would tie jobless benefits to the state's unemployment rate.  

Senate Bill 673 would allow unemployed Missourians to collect the current 20-weeks of benefits only if the unemployment rate is at nine-percent or higher.  

If the rate dips below 6.5-percent, jobless claims would be limited to just 13 weeks or about three months. That's half of the 26-weeks of benefits that the state allowed before 2011.  

The Missouri Chamber of Commerce reports that prior to recession, the average number of benefit weeks was 15  --  two more than the current 5.9-percent rate would allow under the proposal.

Wentzville police give thumbs-up to body cameras

Thursday, 13 February 2014 09:13 Published in Local News
While there may be debate surrounding the use of red-light cameras in the area, for the Wentzville police department, a picture is worth a thousand words.
In a Fox2 News report, Wentzville Police Lieutenant Emmanuel Borroum says he is pleased with the results they have had using the 36 portable body camera units the department purchased in late 2012.  Police say the best part is the cameras record in high definition.
So far, Wentzville Police have 26,000 secured videos saved compared to the 200 monthly they had stored with cruiser dash cams.
Chief Borroum says when they used the in-car cameras, they didn`t get as much video when officers left their vehicles.
Wentzville is one of 20 departments across the country using the cameras and the only one using them in the region.
