ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - After months of legal wrangling and false starts in a battle to resume domestic horse slaughter, plants in New Mexico and Missouri are working to begin processing equine for human consumption.
 
   The efforts come on the heels of an order late Friday by a federal appeals court that lifted an emergency stay on the companies' plans.
 
   Blair Dunn, an Albuquerque who represents Valley Meat Co. of Roswell and Rains Natural Meats of Gallatin, Mo., says the plants Monday "are pushing full steam ahead to be ready to go as soon as possible."
 
   Rains Natural Meats, he says, even has horses on site. But it's unclear if the plants will open before Christmas or wait until after the holidays.
 
   The Humane Society vows "the fight for America's horses is not over."

New rules for same sex marriage in Illinois

Monday, 16 December 2013 17:27 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - A federal court is ordering an Illinois county clerk's office to issue a marriage license to any same-sex couple who wants to wed immediately because one of them has a life-threatening illness.
 
Illinois last month became the 16th state to legalize gay marriage, but couples can't apply for licenses until June 1.
 
But following U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman order Monday to the Cook County clerk's office, they will be able to marry straightaway if they can provide a doctor's note saying one partner has a life-threatening illness.
 
Two Chicago women became the first same-sex couple to wed in Illinois last month after they asked a federal judge for an expedited license. Gay rights advocates say three gay couples have been granted emergency marriage license applications in Cook County.

And you might be noticing that your mail is arriving a bit later in the day.

 

The Post-Dispatch reporting that some people are not getting their mail until as late as 9PM. That is the holiday crunch--the service has seen a 43-percent increase in volume this month.

 

The Postal Service has hired 145 employees locally to ease the burden, but many are still learning the ropes.
