Food stamp cards back online in Illinois

Sunday, 13 October 2013 09:11 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) — Shoppers in Illinois and other states were unable to use their food stamp debit cards because of an outage at the vendor that processes the payments on Saturday.

Police still search for 9 boys from NM youth camp

Saturday, 12 October 2013 09:58 Published in National News

HILLSBORO, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say the search for nine teenagers reported missing from a New Mexico ranch for troubled youth will continue Saturday despite statements from the facility's attorney saying the boys were being returned to their parents.

State police said in a statement Saturday that they have information that one or more children have been returned to their parents but until they "can physically confirm their well-being" the search will continue and the Amber Alert issued for the teens stands.

A search warrant was executed Friday at the Tierra Blanca High Country Youth Program after allegations of beatings surfaced. The teens weren't at the 30,000-acre compound in Sierra County and neither was program operator Scott Chandler, a person of interest in the case.

Chandler denied the teenagers were harmed.
