Paying red-light camera fines in Arnold optional

Sunday, 09 February 2014 08:53 Published in Local News

ARNOLD, Mo. (AP) — An eastern Missouri community that was the first in the state to install red light cameras says it will keep issuing tickets to red-light runners caught on camera, but they don't have to pay the fine if they don't want to.

TheSt. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Arnold City Council voted unanimously Thursday to not pursue tickets from the cameras. The decision comes after the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District ruled in December that Arnold's red-light camera law is unconstitutional.

City Administrator Bryan Richison says those who get tickets and come to court will get their ticket dismissed, while no warrants will be issued for those who just ignore the tickets. Those who pay the fines, however, won't get their money back.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has joined his Missouri counterpart and others at a ribbon-cutting for a new bridge over the Mississippi at St. Louis.

The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge is opening to traffic Sunday.

The two states spent years fighting over how to pay for the $700 million span, then argued over what to name the bridge.

But on Saturday officials from both states came together to celebrate its completion.

Quinn said the first new link to be built between downtown St. Louis and southwestern Illinois in more than four decades will be a "catalyst for business development and job creation."

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx called it "a road to opportunity."

It's designed to relieve I-70 traffic on the chronically crammed 50-year-old Poplar Street Bridge.

Justice Dept applies same-sex rights to itself

Saturday, 08 February 2014 13:36 Published in Local News

WASHINGTON (AP) — In an assertion of same-sex marriage rights, Attorney General Eric Holder is applying a landmark Supreme Court ruling to the Justice Department.

The attorney general says same-sex spouses cannot be compelled to testify against each other, should be eligible to file for bankruptcy jointly and are entitled to the same rights and privileges as federal inmates in opposite-sex marriages.

The attorney general says that in every federal courthouse and in every proceeding where Justice Department employees stand, they will ensure that same-sex marriages receive the same privileges, protections and rights as opposite-sex marriages under federal law.

On Monday, the Justice Department will issue a policy memo to its employees instructing them to give lawful same-sex marriages full and equal recognition, to the greatest extent possible under the law.
