Father's appeal elicits Facebook tribute video

Friday, 07 February 2014 04:28 Published in Local News
   ST. LOUIS (AP) - A grieving father's personal appeal to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has prompted the social network to release a retrospective video tribute of the man's deceased 21-year-old son.
   John Berlin of suburban St. Louis posted a YouTube message to Zuckerberg on Wednesday seeking a copy of Facebook's new "look back" video feature for his late son, Jesse, who died in January 2012.
   The automated tool creates a 62-second video using photos and comments previously posted by Facebook users. The YouTube plea has since drawn more than 1.1 million views.
   Facebook typically disables the accounts of people who have died. But the company said in a statement Thursday that Berlin's request "moved us to take action" and suggested Facebook might alter its policies on information posted by users who later died.
 

Cell tower bills pass MO Senate

Friday, 07 February 2014 03:33 Published in Local News
   Legislation that would limit the ability of cities and counties to restrict cellphone towers is a step close to being law in Missouri...again.  
   State senators approved a series of bill Thursday that would reinstate many of the provisions of a 2013 law that were struck down in court for violating the single-subject requirement of the state constitution.  Lawmakers split the measures into five separate bills this time around.  
   The legislation is aimed at creating uniform standards for communications companies expanding cellphone and Internet services.  
   Many cities oppose the rules over conflicts with their own zoning and land-use regulations.
 

2 IL families awarded $8 million for grain bin deaths

Friday, 07 February 2014 03:20 Published in Local News
   MOUNT CARROLL, Ill. (AP) - An Illinois jury has awarded $16 million to the families of two teenagers killed in a July 2010 grain bin accident.
   The Carroll County jury reached its judgment after a 13 day trial, awarding $8 million each to the families of 19 year old Alejandro Pacas and 14 year old Wyatt Whitebread.
   The workers were in a Haasbach LLC grain bin to help the corn flow while machinery was running. They were trapped in corn more than 30 feet deep.
   Haasbach, which is now out of business, paid $200,000 in federal fines for more than two dozen violations. It also paid more than $68,000 for violating child labor laws under an agreement with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
   The jury found Haasbach owner Consolidated Grain and Barge ultimately responsible for the deaths.
   Carroll County is about 280 miles north of St. Louis, in northwestern Illinois near the Iowa border.
