   CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's official news agency reports that the state prosecutor has ordered the detention of the ousted president over alleged contacts with Hamas to help in his escape from prison in 2011.

   The MENA news agency said Mohammed Morsi has been detained for 15 days for investigation into the charges.

   Egypt's military has been holding Morsi in an undisclosed location since deposing him on July 3.

Washington Park, IL considers disbanding police

Friday, 26 July 2013 03:18 Published in Local News

   WASHINGTON PARK, Ill. (AP) - The mayor the village of Washington Park, Illinois says city leaders are talking about disbanding the police department.

   The Belleville News-Democrat reports Thursday that Washington Park Mayor Ann Rodgers says the village's financial situation is bleak. She says a number of options are being considered but nothing has been finalized. The village's police chief, Aubrey Keller, has previously suggested the department be abolished.

   Keller says the department has a staff shortage and is paying overtime costs.

   St. Clair County State's Attorney Brendan Kelly also agrees that abolishing the department is an option.

   Washington Park has a $7 million deficit and Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka has called for the state attorney general to investigate the village's finances.

 

   O'Fallon, Missouri city councilman Michael Snowden is stepping down after just five months in office.  

   Snowden was appointed to fill the unexpired term of former councilman Mark Perkins, and then elected to the post in April.  Perkins had quit to devote more time to his job.  

   In a statement Snowden says he's accepted a position in another State to run and operate a "911-Emergency Dispatch Center." His resignation is effective September 15th.

   It's not known yet if his Fifth Ward seat will be filled before the general election next April.
