Layoffs headed to Patch.com

Friday, 09 August 2013 13:07 Published in Local News

The St. Louis Business Journal reports that layoffs with Patch.com are headed to St. Louis.

Across the company up to 500 employees are expected to lose their jobs and a total of 300 Patch sites could be closed. Patch employs 15 people to operate 24 Patch websites in the area.

Patch.com provides extremely local news. 

The call for help is going out in Florissant.

Police are asking residents to keep an eye out for copper thieves in the area. Police say the burglars target unoccupied homes to remove the copper piping. They take the piping and sell it to scrap yards. The thieves often dress as construction workers to confuse neighbors.

Police are encouraging anyone who notices suspicious activities to report them.

CHICAGO (AP) - Senate President John Cullerton and House Speaker Michael Madigan are trying to speed up the resolution of a lawsuit they filed against Gov. Pat Quinn over his decision to cut lawmakers' pay.

A spokeswoman for Cullerton says the two leaders are asking a Cook County Circuit judge to rule on the merits of the case following Sept. 18 oral arguments, rather than just on a motion for a preliminary injunction.

Quinn cut $13.8 million for legislative salaries from the state budget as a consequence for lawmakers' failure to address Illinois' nearly $100 billion pension crisis.

Madigan and Cullerton say the line-item veto is unconstitutional and violates the separation of powers.

Lawmakers, who already missed their August paycheck, would miss another one before the motion would be decided.
