   A $25,000 reward is being offered after Phineas the dog disappeared Friday night from the Salem, Missouri vet's office where he's lived for more than a year.  

   The dog has been the subject of legal challenges after being condemned by the mayor in 2012 for allegedly biting a 7 year old girl.  She wasn't seriously hurt and experts are questioning the photographic evidence of that bite.

   Staff at the veterinary office discovered Phineas missing when they arrived about 7:30 Saturday morning.  They'd last seen him Friday evening when they fed the dog.

   The vet who's been caring for Phineas, Dr. J. J. Tune was expected to testify at a pivotal court hearing Thursday.  Dr. Tune told Fox 2 News that the evidence seems to lean in the dog's favor.  "You know, in my estimation, the dog would have been exonerated," Tune said.  "The bite wound that they have pictures of is of a primate bite.  It's not of a canine bite."

   Now the dog's owners are worried that someone who wanted to harm the dog has taken him.  Their attorney, Joe Simon told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that it's likely the dog is dead.  Even so, the reward for information about his disappearance stands.

 

Second dry ice explosion reported at LA airport

Tuesday, 15 October 2013 02:35 Published in National News

   LOS ANGELES (AP) — A dry ice explosion occurred late Monday at Los Angeles International Airport, but there were no reports of any injuries or evacuations, authorities said.

   The incident was reported shortly before 8:30 p.m. at the airport's Tom Bradley International Terminal. There was no immediate word where the dry ice was found or whether there was any significant damage.

   Two other devices also were found at the airport but they did not explode, Detective Gus Villanueva said.

   Investigators don't believe the incident is linked to terrorism and no threat was called into the airport, Villanueva said.

   No flights were affected by the explosion, authorities said.

   On Sunday night, someone planted a plastic bottle containing dry ice that exploded in an employee bathroom in LAX's terminal 2. Up to four flights were delayed after airport police halted security screening for more than an hour.

   No arrests have been made in either case.

   A bomb squad was at the airport late Monday and investigators from the LAPD's criminal conspiracy division were assisting, Villanueva said.

 

Tax deadline not delayed by gov't shutdown

Tuesday, 15 October 2013 02:26 Published in National News

   Even a partial government shutdown that has most IRS workers furlough won't affect Tuesday's tax deadline.  

   Tax filers who requested a six month extension back in April must file their taxes by today.  

   Officials with the Internal Revenue Service say the shutdown hasn't changed that, but it has halted any refund checks until normal government operations resume.  

   There's also no one there to take calls or answer taxpayer questions, since more than 90 percent of IRS workers are on furlough.
