YUKON, Okla. (AP) - A hospital official in Oklahoma City says more than 75 people were injured during a burst of severe storms and tornadoes on Friday night.

Integris spokeswoman Brooke Cayot said Saturday that the hospital chain had treated 77 people. One remains in critical condition.

Five people died during the storm, which struck the Oklahoma City area during rush hour, trapping many people in their cars along Interstate 40.

The National Weather Service reported Friday evening that "several" tornadoes rolled across the prairie. The official number of tornadoes has not yet been determined.

Soldier portraits exhibit extended in Springfield

Saturday, 01 June 2013 09:06 Published in Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - An exhibit of drawings of fallen Illinois soldiers on display in Springfield has been extended for another month.

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum announced Friday the "Portrait of a Soldier" exhibit will remain open until after July 4. The display originally was scheduled to close Friday.

The new closing date will give more visitors a chance to see the traveling display of hand-drawn portraits of Illinois soldiers killed since Sept. 11, 2001.

Artist Cameron Schilling of Mattoon has drawn all the portraits. He began drawing them in August 2004.

Gov. Pat Quinn says the exhibit honors Illinois heroes. The free exhibit is at the library portion of the museum campus.

Mom who stuffed drugs into son's coat gets prison

Saturday, 01 June 2013 09:05 Published in Local News

QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - A Missouri mother caught stuffing cocaine, heroin and marijuana into her 4-year-old son's coat pocket during her Illinois arrest for shoplifting expected to get probation for the offense. But a judge wasn't so forgiving about her parenting.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reports that 28-year-old Jennifer Shurtleff of Hannibal was been sentenced in western Illinois' Adams County to four years in prison.

Shurtleff pleaded guilty heroin possession, retail theft and child endangerment charges stemming from her December arrest at a Kmart in Quincy.

The county's probation department recommended probation for Shurtleff. But Judge Scott Walden says he couldn't go with that because she involved her son.

The judge said prison time could be a potential deterrent to parents "exposing children to the horrors of drugs."
