   ST. LOUIS (AP) - Rivers in the nation's heartland are rising yet again, and with heavy rain in the forecast, parts of Iowa, Missouri and Illinois are bracing for another round of flooding.

   The National Weather Service said Wednesday that 2 to 4 inches of rain will be common as strong storms fire up through Friday; some areas could see up to 6 inches.

   How bad things get will depend on how much rain falls and where.

   The weather service says a worst-case scenario would be widespread heavy rain along the Mississippi River north of St. Louis, and along the Missouri River. The Mississippi and many of its tributaries are already above flood stage, and the Missouri is getting close.

   Forecasters say the Mississippi could reach its highest level at St. Louis in nearly two decades.

   A state representative is working with a group of South County residents to halt construction of a subsidized senior housing complex in their neighborhood.  

   St. Louis County Councilman Steve Stenger says four public hearings were held before the County Council approved the three-story, 45 -unit building and 37 parking spaces on an acre and a half site in the 6000 block of Telegraph Road.  

   Hundreds of Oakville residents gathered at St. Paul's United Church of Christ Wednesday evening to discuss the project.  Most say they were never told about any hearings.  

   State Representative Marsha Haefner says that's a problem. "The biggest issue is the lack of transparency," Haefner said.  "And putting such a large complex on such a small site."

   Haefner says she believes citizens can request new hearings if it can be proven that proper notification procedures were not followed.

The United Mine Workers are unhappy with the decision of a bankruptcy court to side with Patriot Coal today. The ruling is the latest chapter in saga concerning benefits for retired miners. Patriot Coal is an independent company, but was created by spinning off part of Peabody Energy. Patriot argued they needed to cut retiree's benefits to stay in business. The Miners argued they had been promised benefits and should not have them taken away. The decision came on the last day the court could rule on the matter.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - With just three days to go, lawmakers are inching along on a solution to Illinois' nearly $100 billion pension crisis

Both chambers are at odds with how to move forward with two complete overhauls. Meanwhile, three smaller pension bills - dealing with retirement age, salary caps and cost-of-living increases - have moved out of a committee to the Senate floor. Senators could vote on those before Friday's adjournment.

A spokeswoman for Senate President John Cullerton says lawmakers are trying multiple approaches to send Gov. Pat Quinn a complete plan.

Rep. Elaine Nekritz, a key player in pension talks, says a bill that'd require state universities and community colleges to start picking up their own pension costs was expected to be filed Wednesday.

BALLWIN, Mo. (AP) - The founder of the Castlewood Treatment Center for eating disorders is no longer leading the center in St. Louis County or its facility in California following lawsuits by former clients.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Mark Schwartz and his partner, Lori Galperin, stepped down from daily operations in December, though the change wasn't confirmed until Tuesday.

Castlewood director Nancy Albus is now CEO.

Four women have filed lawsuits since 2011 against Castlewood and Schwartz alleging they were hypnotized into believing they were members of satanic cults, and implanted with false memories of sexual abuse. The center has denied the claims. Schwartz is scheduled to give a deposition in July.

Some good news concerning the fire at the Bridgeton Landfill. The EPA is expected to announce that radioactive waste buried near the site remains contained.

The waste was buried at the site in the 1970's. In 2008, the EPA approved a plan to install an earthen cap over the contaminated area.

The report, that will be released in full Wednesday afternoon, says that the safety features have kept the area secure. The results of the report were gathered by a flyover that used special monitoring equipment.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois Senate President John Cullerton is meeting with key lawmakers to attempt a compromise on legislation allowing people to carry concealed guns.

Spokeswoman Rikeesha Phelon says Cullerton met earlier Wednesday with Senate and House members who have rival, but similar, measures.

Phelon says there are "core compromises" that can be made to create an acceptable plan.

A top Senate committee voted Tuesday to reject a House-approved version that not only allows the public possession of weapons but invalidates all local ordinances on firearms, such as Chicago's assault-weapons ban.

The same committee advanced a plan by Senate Democrats that excludes the pre-emption of local laws and includes tighter restrictions on carrying guns while drinking alcohol.
