St. Louis city police seek drivers in deadly accident

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.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the incident happened at 2:30 a.m. Sunday at Chouteau and Grand. The victim's name has not been released, and police are still searching for the drivers.
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.
 

Illinois will only accept conceal-carry permits online

Monday, 16 December 2013 10:22 Published in Local News
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois State Police will only accept online applications from people who want new concealed carry permits.
The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers reports that's concerning for one Illinois lawmaker who was the chief sponsor of the state's new gun law.
Harrisburg Democrat Rep. Brandon Phelps says people should "have a choice" whether to file an application on paper or through their computer. He says some people may not have access to computers.
But Illinois State Police officials say they're not set up to process paper applications. ISP spokeswoman Monique Bond says the paperless system is "more efficient, cost-effective and easier for other agencies."
People will be able to file applications starting January 5. 
Authorities anticipate 400,000 people will apply for concealed carry permits in the first year alone.
 
 ROLLA, Mo. (AP) - Young adults who are heavy Internet users may also exhibit signs of addiction.
That's the finding of a new study that was conducted by researchers at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, Duke University Medical Center and the Duke Institute of Brain Science. The study tracked the Internet usage of 69 college students over two months. It reveals a correlation between certain types of Internet usage and addictive behaviors.
Researchers also found that students who scored high on an introversion scale spent 25 percent more time on instant messaging than those who scored low on the scale. Introversion also was closely tied to file downloading and loss of control to gambling.
