 EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - An East St. Louis woman is jailed on $1 million bond after being accused in the weekend stabbing death of her husband.

 

   Prosecutors in southwestern Illinois' St. Clair County charged 44-year-old Tammy Carpenter with first-degree murder in the death early Saturday of 58-year-old Jerome Carpenter.

Missouri to test slip-resistant road treatment

Monday, 10 June 2013 06:35 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri has received a federal grant to test a new type of road treatment intended to keep cars from slipping off highways when it rains or snows.

   The Missouri Department of Transportation says it will apply the "high friction surface treatment" to a pair of curves on U.S. 54 and Missouri 179 in Jefferson City.

   If the agency has enough money, it may also apply the treatment at two sites on Interstate 44 near Rolla.

   Missouri received $150,000 for the project from the Federal Highway Administration. A total of 13 states and the District of Columbia received money through the grant program that encourages innovative technologies on roads and bridges.
