   Life is slowly returning to normal in the river town of Grafton, Illinois.

   The Great River Road has reopened. Raging Rivers Water Park in Grafton will reopen Tuesday morning at 10:30, one week after the flooded Mississippi River forced it to close.  

   The Mississippi continues to recede, but hasn't returned to its banks just yet.  Travel on Highway 67 between the Clark Bridge and Highway 94 in West Alton is still just one lane in each direction. 

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is getting praise for its use of Twitter, Facebook, and other social media.

MPHProgramslist.com scored the 100 largest cities on how well they utilize social media.

St. Louis came in at the 19th spot. The department got praise for boasting over 5500 followers on Twitter and regularly posting to its YouTube channel. St. Louis scored better than other major cities such as Chicago, Houston, and Atlanta.

Dallas topped the list, with Boston in the second spot.

MPH is a website that supplies information for students looking to study public health or safety.

 

CHICAGO (AP) - If Illinois becomes the 19th state to legalize medical marijuana, experts say there may be scores of legal questions for businesses.

Crain's Chicago Business reports the bill that was approved by lawmakers in Springfield is prompting questions from observers.

The measure, which is awaiting Gov. Pat Quinn's signature, is being billed as the strictest in the nation. It's not clear if Quinn will sign it.

The measure's sponsor says there'd be minimal impact on employers with a zero-tolerance drug policy.

But critics say there could be legal issues related to hiring and firing workers who test positive for the drug or show up to work while they're impaired.
