   A settlement may be near in the class action lawsuit against Schnucks supermarkets stemming from a security breach that compromised more than 2 million customer credit and debit cards.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the judge will decide in the coming weeks if the deal Schnucks has agreed to is satisfactory.  

   But an attorney pursuing a federal lawsuit over the matter is asking the court to throw out the settlement, claiming it's unfair because proper discover hasn't been done and the full scope of the damages to Schnucks customers isn't known.  Attorney's involved in the local case deny that.

   Hackers breached the grocery chain's security between December 2012 and March 2013.

   Next summer's Fair St. Louis will be held at Forest Park.  The Fair Saint Louis Foundation and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay made the official announcement Wednesday evening at the Art Museum.  

   The 34th annual festival will be centered on Art Hill on July 3, 4 and 5.  The 137th Veiled Prophet Parade will march through Forest Park instead of downtown St. Louis.  

   That's because the $380 million renovation of the Arch grounds won't be finished in time. It could be done in time for the 2015 fair, but that decision won't be made until late next year. 

   The 2014 event will include the traditional air show, concerts, fireworks and a Kids Zone, with the main stage at the foot of Art Hill near the Grand Basin.  And Fair officials are promising several new elements that will be unveiled early next year.

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois lawmakers have re-opened talks on a bill to expand gambling, but many of the concerns that doomed earlier proposals remain.

   The House Executive Committee held a hearing Wednesday on a measure to add five casinos and allow slot machines at Chicago's major airports. The bill passed the Senate in the spring but didn't get a House vote.

   Bill sponsor Rep. Robert Rita is a Blue Island Democrat. He says he'll work to address concerns. They include whether there's sufficient oversight of a Chicago casino and how new revenue would be shared.

   Both the House and Senate have adjourned for the week. Lawmakers are scheduled to return to Springfield for the second week of the fall session in early November.

   Downers Grove businessman Doug Truax and Kane County Regional School board member Chad Koppie are also making primary bids.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A river worker is hospitalized after his boat was struck by a barge on the Missouri River near St. Charles.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A reputed prison gang leader who was on probation in California has been captured in Missouri.

Forty-five-year-old Albert "Spanky" Amaya is jailed in Missouri's Pettis County while awaiting extradition. No attorney is listed for him in online Missouri court records.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Amays was sentenced to 25 years to life in state prison in 2008 after he was convicted of extortion, his third felony conviction. But he was released in June after a voter-approved measure allowed "three strikes" inmates to seek re-sentencing.

The San Bernardino County district attorney's office placed him on GPS monitoring while seeking to send him back to prison. Authorities allege he was a crew chief for the Mexican Mafia prison gang and fled after cutting the GPS device.
