   It should be business as usual Friday at the Bank of America building in downtown St. Louis after an overnight hazmat scare.  

   St. Louis Police and Firefighters were called in about 12:30 a.m. after employees at the office tower found a white, powdery substance spilling out of a package.  

   Hazmat crews investigated and determined the substance wasn't dangerous.  There's no word what that white powder may have been.

Caseyville board reinstates fired police chief

Friday, 21 February 2014 03:22 Published in Local News
   CASEYVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The village board in Caseyville has voted to reinstate the village's police chief who was fired last week.
   Caseyville Police Chief Jose Alvarez was fired just five months after taking over for a predecessor who killed himself. But board members voted Thursday to reinstate Alvarez. Board member Rick Casey Jr. tells the Belleville News-Democrat that he voted to reinstate Alvarez because "the process in which he was fired was not right."
   At the time Alvarez said he wasn't aware that he'd been fired. When he fired Alvarez, Caseyville Mayor Len Black said he wanted to take a different direction with the city's police department.
   Black hired the 61-year-old Alvarez last September after the suicide three months earlier of former police chief J.D. Roth.
