Trooper the dog headed to forever home for Christman

Friday, 20 December 2013 09:15 Published in Local News

Just in time for Christmas, a dog that was severely injured after being dragged for nearly a mile down I-55 last November is getting a forever home.  

 

Trooper the dog will go home Friday with his new owner.  The St. Louis man who adopted the energetic pit-bull is an experience dog owner who recently lost his own pit-bull after years of companionship.  Humane Society of Missouri president Kathy Warnick says narrowing down the list of applicants wasn't easy.

 

Trooper's new "dad" works from home, so he'll be able to spend lots of time with the dog as he continues to recover from his injuries.

Friday, 20 December 2013 09:13 Published in Local News

Several new traffic laws take effect in Illinois January 1st.  

 

The speed limit on rural interstates will go up from 65 to 70-miles-per-hour.  Madison and St. Clair Counties can opt out on heavily congested highways.  Penalties for speeding will get tougher.  Driving more than 26 miles-per-hour over the speed limit will be a Class B misdemeanor.  Exceed the limit by 35 miles-per-hour and is a Class A misdemeanor.  

 

And the use of hand-held cellphones will be banned.  Fines run from 70-to-150-dollars.  Cause a fatal accident because of cellphone use and you could spend three years in prison.  Bluetooth headsets, earpieces, and voice activated commands are still allowed. 

Governor Pat Quinn to visit wounded soldiers today

Friday, 20 December 2013 09:11 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn is heading to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to deliver holiday cards to wounded armed service members from Illinois.
 
Visiting the troops during the holidays has become an annual tradition for the governor. During the last eight years, he has traveled to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany - the largest American hospital outside the United States. But his office says in a news release that because so many service members have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan, he decided to go to Walter Reed instead.
 
Quinn will be giving wounded service members cards made by Illinois children when he visits the hospital Friday. He says the cards are the children's way of saying thank you to men and women who can't be home during the holidays.
