SIU team spends night in church after storm

Monday, 06 January 2014 09:43 Published in Local News
TUSCOLA, Ill. (AP) - Southern Illinois' men's basketball team is heading back to campus after spending the night on the floor of a central Illinois church.
 
The Salukis were on their way home to Carbondale after a 66-48 loss at Illinois State when their bus got stuck in snowdrifts on Interstate 57 Sunday evening.
 
A tow truck pulled the bus from the side the road hours later and the two dozen players and staff members spent the night sleeping in a Tuscola church.
 
Tom Weber is the school's assistant athletics director for media services. He says the players started traveling again around 6:30 a.m. after stocking up on food But heavy snow in central Illinois meant the bus was only traveling about 15 mph.
 
He says road conditions are "very, very bad."
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri has dropped the GED and made the switch to a new high school equivalency exam.
 
The Columbia Missourian reports that beginning this month, Missouri began using HiSet, which Educational Testing Service is offering. The switch came with the introduction of a more costly computer-based version of the GED.
 
Even though the state went with the lowest bidder, the new exam will be more costly for some test takers.
 
Previously it cost $40 to take the GED once, with each retake costing another $40.
 
Missouri adult education official Tom Robbins says the most affordable way to take the HiSET is to pay $95 for the five-test battery. Participants get two free retests within a 12-month period. Out of that amount, $10 goes to the state to administer the program.

KTRS, St. Louis, MO - Sunday marked the day Illinois residents could officially apply for a concealed weapons permit.

The Illinois State Police began accepting applications on its website yesterday. State Police have up to 90 days to approve or deny applications, as long as the applications are complete and fingerprints are submitted in an electronic format. The agency will have an additional 30 days to complete a manual background check if applicants choose not to submit fingerprints, so it could be months before anyone will actually be allowed to possess a concealed firearm.

Illinois is the last state in the nation to allow conceal-carry.
