Some good news after a rough morning commute: MoDOT has opened many lanes on I-55 near Bayless.

 

The highway was closed for more than six hours after a collision between a tanker truck and a MoDOT plow. Authorities say the crash caused a fuel leak. Emergency responders used sandbags to keep the fuel from reaching a nearby creek.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court will decide whether making nonunion home health care workers in Illinois pay "fair-share" union fees is an unconstitutional violation of their First Amendment rights. The case could have major implications for public service unions.
 
The justices heard arguments Tuesday from lawyers for Illinois homecare personal assistants who don't want to be affiliated with a union. In Illinois, nonunion home health care workers have to pay "fair share fees" to compensate the union for its work for all of the workers. Those workers sued, saying that the fees violate the First Amendment by compelling them to associate with the union.
 
Lower courts have thrown out the lawsuit. If the high court agrees it would make it more difficult for unions to collect money for their work.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A spring golf tournament is being planned to help the family of a Smithville man who died after an altercation at Arrowhead Stadium.
 
The Kyle Van Winkle golf classic will be held May 5 at Meadowbrook Golf & Country Club in Prairie Village, Kan.
 
The 30-year-old Van Winkle died Dec. 1 after he was beaten in an Arrowhead parking lot during a Chiefs game. Court documents say Van Winkle was injured after he was found in a stranger's vehicle. Van Winkle apparently got into a vehicle that looked like the one he rode to the game in.
 
He left behind a widow and 7-week-old son.
 
His death was ruled a homicide but no one has been charged.
