CHICAGO (AP) - Prosecutors have filed a response to Rod Blagojevich's corruption conviction appeal.

The 169-page government filing submitted late Tuesday urges the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reject the imprisoned former governor's request for a new trial.

Defense lawyers filed the appeal on the Illinois Democrat's behalf in July. It asks the Chicago-based appellate court to toss his convictions or at least reduce his 14-year prison sentence.

In 2011, jurors convicted the 56-year-old former governor of engaging in wide-ranging corruption. That included seeking to profit from his power to appoint someone to the Senate seat that Barack Obama vacated when he became president.

With prosecutors' response in, oral arguments on the appeal could be scheduled soon. A ruling on the appeal by the three-judge panel could happen within several months.

   It looks like some of the projects planned as part of the $380 million renovation of the Arch grounds won't be finished in time for the Arch's 50th anniversary.  A construction timeline released Tuesday estimates that some of the work won't be done until six months later.  

   Project leaders tell the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the delays stem from the complexity of the renovations and the number of projects involved.  

   The good news is that most of the work is projected to be done by the October 28, 2015 anniversary, including the park over the interstate.  But the northern trails to the riverfront won't be finished until December 2015, and the museum won't reopen until May, 2016.

Life Skills is a St. Louis-based organization that helps people with developmental disabilities, specializing in autism, live and work in the community. Life Skills is looking to hire 150 people.

They are looking to fill both full-time and part-time positions. In some cases, no prior experience is necessary. Wendy Sullivan is the CEO of Life Skills and says she cannot remember a time when they had this many open positions. She says that shows the importance of the work they do and the need for help. Sullivan says it is a great way to get involved in the field, "It's great work. It's very rewarding. I'm the CEO, but I started in Life Skills in one of these positions, and I loved it."

The job fair is Wednesday from 3:30 to 6:30 PM at their Creve Coeur office. Attendees are encouraged to bring multiple copies of their resume and be prepared for interviews.
