Firefighters responding to a call in Park Hills, Missouri got more than they bargained for when they found a marijuana growing operation in the basement. The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills reports that emergency crews were called to the home when the resident's mother fell asleep with a lit cigarette, catching her mattress on fire. This happened early Saturday morning. After firefighters extinguished the blaze, they searched the home and reportedly found about 20 plants, as well as lighting and watering equipment in the basement. Formal charges have not yet been filed.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Governor Jay Nixon says a clause in the income tax cut bill that he vetoed could have triggered a $1.2 billion run on the state treasury.

   Attorney General Chris Koster agreed with Nixon's legal analysis this past week. But the projection remains largely hypothetical.

   The Missouri bill would trigger a one-half of a percent reduction in state income tax rates if the federal government enacts a measure making it easier for states to collect online sales taxes.

   That bill has stalled in the U.S. House. But if it passes, then all of Missouri's roughly 2.8 million income taxpayers would have to amend three years of tax returns for Nixon's projections to hit in a single year.

   The courts likely would have to determine whether the retroactive tax refund is legal.

   Demonstrators in St. Louis and elsewhere are calling for maternity practices that put mothers and babies ahead of hospitals and insurance companies.  

   Dozens line Brentwood Boulevard on Labor Day for a "Rally To Improve Birth" demonstration.  It was one of 170 rallies nationwide calling for reducing medical interventions and reducing the rate of cesarean section.  

   Organizers point to United Nations data that shows that the US ranks 45th worldwide in maternal safety even though it has the highest maternity health costs in the world.

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois officials are urging residents to make plans for disasters as Gov. Pat Quinn has declared September "Emergency Preparedness Month."

   Authorities will work with other states and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to encourage individual plans for homes and businesses.

   Illinois Emergency Management Agency Director Jonathon Monkenb says a plan should include where to go and how to communicate during disasters as well as an emergency supply kit.

   IEMA relies on its Ready Illinois website during disasters. Updates are also posted on Facebook and Twitter. Information is provided about the incident, shelter locations, road closures, safety information and more.

   The agency will host its annual emergency management conference Wednesday through Friday in Springfield for more than 1,000 representatives from fire, law enforcement, emergency management and public health.
