Smoking ban to be enforced at University of Illinois

Monday, 16 December 2013 10:39 Published in Local News
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - The University of Illinois is preparing to go smoke-free.
The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports the state's flagship campus in Champaign-Urbana will ban smoking starting January 1. That's not sitting well with some tailgaters who say they want to light up.
Chris Roegge puffed on a cigar during the Illini's last home game and says he thinks the new ban is "kind of silly" and questioned how the school will enforce the new policy.
Champaign resident Dan Tappendorf said "political correctness has gone too far."
The campus already bans smoking inside buildings and within 25 feet of a building entrance.
A school spokeswoman says the smoking ban had been set to begin in November, but administrators decided to delay the change because "we didn't want to hit people right before finals."
 

University of Chicago President earns top dollar

Monday, 16 December 2013 10:31 Published in Local News
WASHINGTON (AP) - The president of the University of Chicago is the highest-paid president of America's elite private universities.
That's according to a survey of tax information collected from 500 private schools with the largest endowments.
The Chronicle of Higher Education released that data Sunday using federal tax information from 2011, the most recent available.
Robert J. Zimmer had base pay was $918,000, but his total compensation was $3.4 million. About 40 percent of his total earnings stem from deferred compensation - a retention tool commonly used to keep college presidents on the job longer.
Presidents from 42 private colleges scaled the $1 million annual mark in total pay and benefits in 2011. That's a slight bump from the year before. The median compensation was $410,523.
A high salary can be a sign of prestige, but it also opens presidents to criticism. The Obama administration and consumers are pressuring schools to rein in tuition costs, increase graduation rates and strengthen the value of a diploma.

Monday, 16 December 2013 10:28 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are investigating after a man was dragged and run over by one vehicle, then struck by another.

Witnesses told police that the man walked up to a Jeep Cherokee at a traffic light on Chouteau and reached inside the open driver's side window. The Jeep took off with the man hanging on. As the Jeep's speed increased the man eventually lost his grip and was run over.
Another vehicle then ran over the victim. Both vehicles left before police arrived. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
