SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – Illinois State Police officials have disqualified a Bolingbrook firearms instructor and informed at least 327 applicants they will not receive a license to carry concealed weapons because of improper training.
 
Investigators conducted interviews and reviewed records to determine the training was not in accordance with state law. They have given their findings to the Will County State’s Attorney for possible action.
Illinois’ concealed carry law took effect Jan. 1. Applicants must complete 16 hours of instruction following curriculum approved by the state police.
 
Denied applicants will be able to repeat training without paying the $150 application fee.
 
State police have so far invalidated 13 instructors and notified 425 applicants of invalid training.
 
The state’s concealed carry website will carry names of disqualified instructors.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Astronaut and University of Illinois graduate Michael Hopkins will deliver the commencement address at his alma mater's spring graduation next month.
Hopkins recently returned from a 166-day stay aboard the International Space Station. He says in a statement released by the university that he'll be every bit as nervous delivering his speech as he was for his first walk in space.
 
Hopkins graduated from Illinois in 1991 with a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering. He was also a member of the school's football team.
The Richland, Mo., native was accepted into NASA's astronaut training program in 2011 after trying without success for almost 12 years.
 
The spring commencement ceremony will be May 17 in Memorial Stadium in Champaign.
