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.

 

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce has taken herself out of consideration to serve as special prosecutor in northwest Missouri.

Joyce had been on a short list of people being considered to reexamine the investigation into a sexual assault case in Maryville, Missouri.

Joyce declined the position after looking at the details of the case--she cited her workload as the reason for the decision. 

Sen. Blunt: No winners in government shutdown

Thursday, 17 October 2013 15:11 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt says there were no winners in the dispute that led to the 16-day partial shutdown of the federal government.

Blunt was the lone Republican in Missouri's congressional delegation to vote Wednesday for compromise legislation that ended the shutdown and avoided a debt default.

But he said Thursday the dispute damaged the public's confidence in government. He also says the government continues to spend and borrow too much - issues he says must still be addressed.

All six Missouri Republicans in the House voted against the legislation. Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill and the state's two House Democrats voted for it.

The measure funds the government through Jan. 15 and allows the government to borrow normally through Feb. 7.
