CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey is conducting low-level flights across sections of Missouri, Arkansas and Tennessee this week looking for clues about the New Madrid earthquake fault zone.
The USGS begins conducting the flights Wednesday over a 1,400-square-mile area across southeastern Missouri, northeastern Arkansas and western Tennessee. Crews will be measuring the magnetic field of the earth and underground rock formations to help locate concealed faults associated with the New Madrid seismic zone.
The USGS says the New Madrid area has been the most seismically active region in the United States east of the Rockies for decades.
The USGS says while there's no evidence of an imminent large earthquake, the agency has serious concerns about the potential repeat of a destructive earthquake like those that occurred in the 1800s.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former suburban St. Louis middle school teacher has pleaded guilty to federal charges for secretly videotaping boys as they undressed in a camp shower.
Sentencing is Oct. 4 for 39-year-old Matthew Hansen of Winfield. He pleaded guilty Tuesday to eight counts of attempted production of child pornography.
Hansen also faces state charges for possession of child porn.
He was arrested in Iowa after threatening to jump off a cellular tower,
Hansen was a math teacher at West Middle School in the Fort Zumwalt School District of St. Charles County. He also worked at a camp for fifth-graders.
Following his arrest last year, school officials told parents that investigators had found evidence that Hansen videotaped at least 80 boys while they undressed at a camp in Lincoln County.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois has become the final state in the nation to allow the public possession of concealed guns, just ahead of a federal appeals court's deadline.
The state Senate voted 41-17 Tuesday to override Gov. Pat Quinn's veto of the concealed carry legislation lawmakers sent him. The House took the same action earlier in the day.
The Chicago Democrat's amendatory veto suggested changes to the delicately negotiated initiative - changes that anti-violence activists embraced.
Quinn wanted guns banned from any establishment that serves alcohol and wanted to limit gun-toting citizens to one firearm at a time.
Senate President John Cullerton says Quinn's recommendations might be addressed in later legislation.
The Illinois State Police must be ready to accept applications in six months. Officials expect 300,000 to apply in the first year.
Another executive at a Clayton-based company that sold prearranged funeral services admitted to being a part of a massive fraud scheme.
Randall Sutton was the ex-president of National Prearranged Services and one of six top officials who was named in a $600 million criminal case. Sutton pleaded guilty to four felony charges and faces up to 7 years in prison when he is sentenced in November.
Sutton is the fourth defendant in the case to plead guilty and the last two defendants are slated to appear in court August 5.
