Alorton fire chief headed to prison for drug case

Friday, 01 November 2013 14:00 Published in Local News

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois fire chief has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for violating his probation related to a previous drug case.

A federal judge in East St. Louis revoked Carlos Darough's probation on Thursday. That's roughly two weeks after Darough was found to have a felony amount of marijuana in his Alorton village vehicle during a traffic stop.

Thirty-six-year-old Darough of Belleville had been serving five years of supervised release connected to a cocaine-related charge that drew him an eight-year federal prison term in 2007.

Court records show Darough has been issued more than 100 citations and repeatedly has been arrested over the past two decades on charges ranging from speeding to domestic battery.

 

Union official: TSA agent dead in LAX shooting

Friday, 01 November 2013 12:18 Published in National News

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A gunman armed with a semi-automatic rifle opened fire at the Los Angeles International Airport, killing a Transportation Security Administration employee and wounding two other people.

 

   Tim Kauffman, a spokesman for the American Federation of Government Employees in Washington, confirmed Friday that a TSA officer was killed.

 

   He says the union's information comes from their local officials in Los Angeles.

   The attack frightened passengers and disrupted flights nationwide.

 

   Police said the unidentified suspect, who was apparently injured following an exchange of gunfire with officers, was in custody.

NORMANDY, Mo. (AP) - The Normandy School District in St. Louis County is changing course and will pay transportation costs for students who transferred away from the unaccredited district.

But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Normandy is still refusing to pay tuition costs.

A Missouri Supreme Court ruling requires unaccredited districts to pay transportation and tuition costs for students who transfer to better-performing districts. Normandy board members voted last week not to pay.

In a special meeting Thursday, the board agreed to pay $108,000 to the bus contractor hired to bus about 440 children to the Francis Howell School District. The board did not reconsider the $1.3 million in September tuition payments for the 1,000 or so students who have left to go to Francis Howell and 13 other districts.
