Belleville hosting film shoot next Friday

Sunday, 20 October 2013 11:27 Published in Local News

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) — Belleville is going Hollywood.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that filming of a new movie required the public square in the southwestern Illinois city east of St. Louis to be closed to traffic for about an hour Friday.

The film, titled "Belleville," is by Ted Trentman, a Belleville native who typically makes movies closer to his Los Angeles digs. But Trentman opted to use his hometown as the setting for his latest work.

There's no immediate word about the movie's plot or when the film will be released.

NJ offices add hours for marriage sign up

Saturday, 19 October 2013 10:08 Published in National News

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — City halls in several New Jersey cities and towns are adding extra office hours today to accept marriage license applications for same-sex couples.

The state's highest court says the marriages can start Monday. Jersey City, Hoboken, and Asbury Park clerk's offices will be open today.

Gov. Chris Christie says he disagrees with the state Supreme Court ruling to recognize same-sex marriages in the state, but he will comply with the decision. He says the people, rather than the courts, should have been the ones to decide the issue.

Meanwhile, U.S. Sen.-elect Cory Booker says he will officiate at weddings of both gay and heterosexual couples as the mayor of Newark. Booker was elected this week to the Senate and has been a strong supporter of gay rights.

California finds more instances of offshore fracking

Saturday, 19 October 2013 10:07 Published in National News

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — The oil production technique known as fracking has been occurring on offshore platforms and man-made islands off some of Southern California's most populous coastal communities.

Interviews and drilling records obtained by The Associated Press show fracking has occurred at least 200 times over the past two decades in waters off Long Beach, Seal Beach and Huntington Beach.

Though there is no evidence offshore hydraulic fracturing has led to any spills or chemical leaks, the practice occurs with little state or federal oversight of the operations

The state agency that leases lands and waters to oil companies says officials found new instances of fracking after searching records as part of a review after the AP reported this summer about fracking in federal waters of California.
