News helicopter crashes near Space Needle

Tuesday, 18 March 2014 10:36 Published in National News

 

SEATTLE (AP) - Two people were killed when a news helicopter for KOMO-TV crashed outside its station near the Seattle Space Needle, sending clouds of black smoke over the city during the morning rush hour.
 
The Seattle Fire Department said in addition to the fatalities, a 37-year-old man who managed to free himself from a car at the accident scene was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition. No other details were immediately available.
 
The station says the copter was apparently lifting off from its rooftop Tuesday morning when it possibly hit the side of the building and went down, hitting several vehicles on Broad Street.
 
The copter and cars exploded in flames.
 
Plumes of black smoke rose from the crash scene as rescue vehicles converged on the area.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Sen. Claire McCaskill and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay are among those urging renewal of federal legislation that they say has a proven record of providing job opportunities in Missouri.
 
   The two Democrats spoke at a news conference in St. Louis on Monday, expressing support for renewing the expired Workforce Investment Act.
 
   McCaskill says the act is important in helping military veterans look for jobs when they return to civilian life.
   McCaskill says that while the jobless rate for veterans has declined recently, it is still far too high. She says the Workforce Investment Act will fund programs to help veterans and others transition to good jobs.
 

Illiana Expressway could receive federal loan

Monday, 17 March 2014 16:20 Published in Local News
MUNSTER, Ind. (AP) - The proposed Illiana Expressway linking northwestern Indiana with Chicago's south suburbs is eligible for a low-interest federal loan for up to one-third of the cost of the $1.5 billion project.
 
The Munster Times reported Monday Indiana and Illinois can apply for a Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act loan for the 47-mile toll road that would run between Interstate 65 near Lowell and I-55 near Wilmington, Ill.
 
Indiana Public Finance Director Kendra York says the project is a good candidate for the loan because it would improve interstate commerce.
 
The two states' transportation departments are preparing a final environmental impact statement to be submitted soon for federal approval. The states hope to receive that approval this spring.
