TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A state agency is turning down a request from researchers at the University of South Florida who want to exhume human remains at a now-defunct Florida Panhandle reform school.

Secretary of State Ken Detzner told researchers Monday that the state does not have legal authority to grant the request, even though the land in Marianna is state-owned. Detzner reports to Gov. Rick Scott.

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson criticized the decision and called it a "classic run-around."

Earlier this year, a circuit judge rejected a request from Attorney General Pam Bondi to exhume bodies from "Boot Hill Cemetery" and surrounding areas. It is believed there may be unmarked graves and unaccounted bodies of boys who died.

The school is formally known as the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys.

Shot fired into sleeping child's room

Monday, 15 July 2013 15:21 Published in Local News

A scary thing to wake up to for one St. Louis woman.

Police say a 3-year-old child was sleeping Sunday morning when someone shot into the child's room. The woman, who is the child's aunt was also asleep in the room. No one was hit and neither the woman or child were woken up by the shot.

When the woman did wake up, she saw the damage and called police. No word on any suspects.

Illinois officials gathered on the approach ramp of the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge this afternoon to get a progress report on the newest Mississippi River crossing.

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn says the bridge project has created thousands of jobs and boosted economic activity in the region. Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider says there has also been an effort to maintain a high level of diversity on the project. 

"For the duration of this project we've been at between 23 and 24 percent for minority participation on this bridge and last week we're at 25 percent minority participation on this bridge", says Schneider, "That is huge." 

The bridge was slated to be finished next July, but building is ahead of schedule and could be completed as early as March.
