Improved emergency medical treatment and faster service for southwestern Illinois residents and workers are the goals of a $2.3 million emergency room expansion project now underway at Touchette Regional Hospital.

Mascoutah police investigate student threat

Tuesday, 04 February 2014 09:45 Published in Local News
Parents in Mascoutah are breathing a sigh of relief. Police in the Illinois community had additional officers at the high school Tuesday morning after a 15 year old student, who lives on Scott Air Force Base, made references in text messages to killing everyone he knows, and then killing people at school.
There was no reference of weapons mentioned in the texts.  Police Chief Bruce Fleshren says the student was texting his girlfriend Monday night when the threats were made.
Police received information from Mascoutah High School Principal Sandy Jouglard saying she was getting phone calls because there was supposedly information on Facebook about the threats.   
Officers began investigating and eventually got to the source. Chief Fleshren says contact was made with the juvenile and his parents and there was no indication that any threats could be carried out.  It will be determined by the school if the student returns, and the investigation will be reviewed by the State’s Attorney’s Office after all reports are completed for any possible charges.
The school later released a “robo-call” to advise parents of the situation and that students should attend classes. 
 
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Springfield police say someone stole national championship rings belonging to Missouri State University's women's basketball coach.
Kellie Harper won three college basketball championships when she played at the University of Tennessee from 1996 to 1998.
The Springfield News-Leader reports Harper, who is in her first year coaching Missouri State, reported the theft Saturday. A police report says the rings were taken from her office at JQH Arena sometime after Jan. 15.
Harper's Tennessee team was 100-14 during the three years she played there. Harper scored 20 points in the championship game in 1998 to help Tennessee defeat Louisiana Tech.
