   Oakville residents say they will take their opposition to a large, senior housing complex in South County to court if necessary.  That was the message delivered by residents who packed a St. Louis County Planning Commission meeting Monday night.  

   The three-story, low income housing project already under construction at Telegraph and Erb by National Church Residences had been approved by the St. Louis County Council.  But residents demanded county officials revisit the issue, claiming they hadn't been told about the project ahead of time.  

   An attorney for National Church Residences says construction on the project will not halt, and his clients are also ready to take the issue to court.

 

Illinois AG Madigan passes on run for governor

Tuesday, 16 July 2013 03:10 Published in Local News

   SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) - Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she'll seek another term instead of running for governor next year.

   In a statement Monday, the Chicago Democrat says she considered mounting a challenge to Gov. Pat Quinn, a fellow Democrat, but decided to stay in her current job and to seek re-election.

   Madigan says one factor in her decision is that her father is the powerful speaker of the state House. She says the state would not be well-served with a governor and speaker from the same family.

   Madigan's exit leaves former White House chief of staff Bill Daley, who's formed an exploratory committee to challenge Quinn, and four Republicans. Illinois faces major financial challenges, including a $97 billion hole in its pension funding.

   Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she'll seek another term instead of running for governor next year.  In a statement Monday, the Democrat says she did consider mounting a challenge to Governor Pat Quinn, a fellow Democrat, but decided against it.  Madigan says one factor in her decision is that her father is the speaker of the state House. She says the state would not be well-served with a governor and speaker from the same family.

   The decision by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan to seek re-election may have put a cramp into the plans of at least two Democratic politicians - state Sen. Kwame Raoul and Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon.

   Raoul has made clear he would make a bid for the attorney general's office if Madigan ran for governor.

   Raoul planned to ramp up his fundraising efforts after the close of the last Legislative session.

   Simon has long made it known her political future won't include re-election next year. However, she hasn't been clear on what office she might seek instead. Simon has touted her legal background.

 

Blagojevich appeals convictions ahead of deadline

Tuesday, 16 July 2013 03:06 Published in Local News

   CHICAGO (AP) - Lawyers for imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich have appealed his corruption convictions and 14-year sentence.

   Monday's filing with the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago comes more than two years after the Chicago Democrat's retrial and 16 months after he entered a Colorado prison.

   Jurors convicted the 56 year old for wide-ranging corruption, including his bid to profit from his power to appoint someone to the state senate seat Barack Obama vacated to become president.

 

   His lawyers filed the appeal less than an hour before a midnight deadline to do so.

 

   In June, defense attorneys citing the complicated issues involved received permission to file a longer-than-usual appeal.
