SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois State Police say two southwestern Illinois firearms instructors were improperly certifying students trying to get concealed carry permits.
 
The agency says Tuesday that nearly 100 students who were taught by the pair will have their training invalidated and their applications denied. The instructors won't be able to teach and the agency is forwarding its findings to the St. Clair County State's Attorney's office.
 
More than 2,700 firearms instructors have been certified by the state to teach gun safety classes as part of Illinois' new concealed carry law.
 
All applicants have to attend at least 16 hours of training before they can apply for the licenses. The first licenses were distributed earlier this month.
 
About 46,000 applications have been submitted. Officials expect about 300,000 applications to be filed this year.

$400 million Mega Millions drawing tonight

Tuesday, 18 March 2014 13:47 Published in Local News
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An estimated $400 million is up for grabs in the latest Mega Millions jackpot.
 
Tuesday night's potential jackpot would be the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.
 
If a single player matches all six numbers, the winner would have the option of taking a $224 million lump-sum prize.
 
Mega Millions changed its rules in October to help increase jackpots by lowering the odds of winning the top prize.
 
If no one hits on all six numbers, the jackpot rolls over to Friday's drawing and a grand prize that would start marching toward $500 million.
 
Mega Millions is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
