MoDOT launches 'Pothole Patrol'

Monday, 10 March 2014 11:20 Published in Local News

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Now that the worst of winter is apparently over, the Missouri Department of Transportation is enlisting the help of motorists in the effort to fill potholes on state-maintained roadways.
 
MoDOT officials say the goal is to fill potholes as quickly as possible once they are reported. Maintenance workers will use asphalt for a temporary fix until permanent repairs can be made.
 
This winter has been especially hard on roads, with rising-and-falling temperatures and a lot of snow and freezing rain that required massive amounts of road salt.
 
Drivers reporting potholes can call 888-275-6636, or go to MoDOT's website or social media platforms.

WASHINGTON (AP) — White House Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken says that it is too early to tell whether foul play was a factor in the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines flight.

Blinken said Sunday that the U.S. was looking into reports that two passengers were using stolen passports, but investigators had reached no conclusions. He said it was premature to speculate whether the passengers had a role in the Boeing 777's disappearance.

Blinken also said U.S. investigators from the FBI, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are heading to Asia to assist in the investigation.

The plane carrying 239 people lost contact with ground controllers somewhere between Malaysia and Vietnam after leaving Kuala Lumpur early Saturday morning enroute to Beijing.

Blinken appeared Sunday on CNN.

California oversight may be coming to pot shops

Sunday, 09 March 2014 10:07 Published in National News

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Law and order may soon be coming to the Wild West of weed.

A California lawmaker has introduced legislation to regulate the state's free-wheeling medical marijuana industry — the farmers that grow the drug, the hundreds of storefront shops that sell it and the doctors who write recommendations allowing its use.

The bill marks a milestone not only because it would provide significant state oversight of the multi-billion dollar industry for the first time, but because it is likely to get serious consideration in Sacramento after years of inaction.

It is the brainchild of the California Police Chiefs Association and the League of California Cities, politically influential groups that have stood in the way of efforts to legitimize pot growers and dispensaries by subjecting them to state control and taxation.
