Brand name announced for Illinois healthcare marketplace

Wednesday, 25 September 2013 12:22 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois officials have decided on a brand name for the new health insurance marketplace set to open Tuesday.

Gov. Pat Quinn's administration unveiled the name Wednesday: It's "Get Covered Illinois." The brand tagline is "The Official Health Marketplace."

Deputy Gov. Cristal Thomas says the administration wanted a name that was "very clear about what this product has to offer."

The brand and logo are part of a multimillion-dollar ad campaign beginning Tuesday and building through the fall and winter. Uninsured Illinoisans have until the end of March to buy health insurance through Get Covered Illinois.

State officials expect at least 300,000 people to sign up for coverage using new options available through President Barack Obama's health care law. The Affordable Care Act requires nearly all Americans to have health insurance.

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 16:12 Published in Local News

Two men are in custody, accused of using a skimming device on an ATM.

Creve Coeur police found the skimmer on an ATM at a US Bank on September 17. Surveillance video showed the suspects and caught images of their vehicle. The men were arrested two days later  by St. Charles Police. The suspects had several cloned debit cards and a large amount of cash in their vehicle.

The pair face several felony charges and the Secret Service is now involved in the investigation. 

4 charged in Chicago shooting held without bail

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 14:34 Published in National News

CHICAGO (AP) - A judge denied bail for four men charged in connection with a shooting at a Chicago park that injured a 3-year-old boy and 12 others.

All four appeared before a Cook County judge Tuesday wearing street clothes.

Authorities say last Thursday's attack on the city's southwest side was gang related and in retaliation for another shooting that occurred earlier in the day, injuring one of the defendants.

Tabari Young, Bryon Champ, Brad Jett and Kewane Gatewood are all charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery. Prosecutors say the four are members of the Blackstone street gang. The park where they opened fire was inside territory frequented by members of the Gangster Disciples.

Investigators say Young and Champ were alleged gunmen.

Police say they don't believe they were targeting specific people
