CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn won't debate his lone Democratic challenger ahead of next month's primary.
 
Activist Tio Hardiman wrote Quinn a letter requesting debates ahead of March 18, saying the public "deserves a serious debate."
 
Quinn campaign spokeswoman Leslie Wertheimer said Friday she hadn't seen the letter but no debates were to "take place."
 
Hardiman faces an uphill battle. Records for the most recent quarter show Quinn's campaign has $4.5 million in the bank, compared with $550 for Hardiman, who's mostly self-financed.
 
He's been active in anti-violence efforts, but doesn't have statewide name recognition or party backing.
 
Hardiman insists he'll run a credible campaign.
 
The Republican gubernatorial candidates are participating in numerous debates. They are Treasurer Dan Rutherford, businessman Bruce Rauner, and state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - New filings in a class action lawsuit challenging Missouri's treatment of convicted sex offenders seek the release from custody of more than 200 men in the program.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the legal challenge to the Missouri Department of Mental Health claims its Sex Offender Rehabilitation and Treatment Services program is mismanaged, overcrowded and essentially a prison disguised as a mental hospital.
 
The program was created to treat sex offenders who complete prison sentences but are deemed unsafe to be released. They are held indefinitely as mental health patients at secure facilities in Farmington and Fulton
 
Since the program was started 14 years ago, no one has successfully completed treatment. The suit was first filed in 2009. Missouri is among 20 states with similar treatment programs.

All lanes of westbound Interstate 64 are open hours after a tractor trailer caught fire.

Just before 6 AM a tandem tractor trailer caught fire on the shoulder of the road. The fire did not spread beyond the trailer, but crews are exercising caution because the second trailer contains hazardous materials. Fox 2 reports the material has the potential to cause an explosion. Drivers were backed up for miles while crews worked to extinguish the fire.

MoDOT is planning to close westbound I-70 between the Poplar Street Bridge and Pine Street from 8 p.m. Saturday until noon on Sunday.  One lane of eastbound I-70 and the Eads Bridge will also be closed for that time and eastbound 70 could close for 15-minutes at a time during the work.  Its all part of the Park Over the Highway project linking the Arch grounds with downtown.
