Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies caught up with a pair of unsuccessful robbers.

Joshua Benton and Patrick Rubach face first-degree robbery charges for crimes at a Circle K Convenience store in High Ridge and Steak n Shake in Fenton. Deputies say that they received a call from Benton to report that Rubach, who is his roommate, committed the crimes. After an investigation, authorities discovered that both men were involved in the crimes.

At both the Circle K and Steak n Shake, deputies say the men pulled a gun on employees and demanded money. And at both places, the men left with no money. The pair are held on a quarter-million dollar bond. 

IL Supreme Court invalidates online sales tax law

Friday, 18 October 2013 13:04 Published in Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois Supreme Court is invalidating a two-year-old Illinois law charging taxes on certain Internet sales.

The justices ruled 6-1 in an opinion released Friday to invalidate the so-called "Amazon tax."

The ruling determined that the law violates a pre-emptive federal decree prohibiting "discriminatory taxes on electronic commerce."

Lawmakers created the Internet tax in 2011 on out-of-state electronic retailers. The law claimed those merchants maintained a presence in the state through a website link.

In other words, if a blogger referred customers to a company by encouraging clicking on a site-based advertisement, that was "presence" in Illinois. That obligated the seller to collect sales tax.

Justice Lloyd Karmeier dissented, saying the law doesn't impose any new taxes.

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - A Chicago consulting firm has made recommendations to the Southern Illinois Airport Authority.

The Southern Illinoisan in Carbondale reports that two consultants made a presentation to the authority on Wednesday. It included a development plan and recommendations for the Southern Illinois Airport property.

The consultants suggested relocating, realigning and rebuilding parts of the airport. They also suggested improving access to U.S. 51 and Illinois 13 to provide better access.

Consultant Aaron Gruen said the overall improvement effort would cost about $8 million.
