Randolph Co. man dies in farm accident

Tuesday, 21 January 2014 02:27 Published in Local News

   A Randolph County man is dead after an apparent accident on his family's farm, just east of Red Bud, Illinois.   Emergency crews were called to the 6900 block of Griggs Road just before noon Monday.  

   Firefighters arrived to learn that 44 year old Jeffery Guebert had fallen into a grain elevator.  Rescue workers cut holes in the side of the silo in an attempt to retrieve Guebert, but it was too late.  His body was recovered by late afternoon.  

   Randolph County authorities are still trying to determine how Guebert fell into the elevator.

Pension reform won't do much to curb IL debt

Tuesday, 21 January 2014 02:22 Published in Local News

   A report being released Tuesday says Illinois' plan to save $160 billion ultimately won't make much of a dent in the state's growing deficits.  

   The University of Illinois' Institute for Government and Public Affairs study says changes to the state's major public pension systems will eliminate their unfunded liability over the next 25 years, but the state's deficit will increase to $13 billion during that time.  Institute researchers projected a $14 billion deficit - a $1 billion difference - if the state had not implemented pension reform.  

   Institute Director Chris Mooney says the study was released as campaigns for the 2014 general election begin to heat up in order to make sure the state's fiscal crisis is talked about.

   Residents in the St. Louis area are bracing for the next round of winter weather.  Snow, cold and wind... the next winter storm will have a little bit of everything.
   Overnight, widely scattered snow showers are expected to spread across the metro area ahead of a blast of arctic air.  Up to an inch or two of accumulation is possible by Tuesday morning, especially along and east of the Mississippi River.  Farther south and west could see just a dusting.  
   Then temperatures will nose-dive, dropping into the mid-teens by 6:00 a.m. with wind chills around zero.  That's because of strong winds from the northwest.
   A Wind Advisory is in effect until 6:00 a.m.  Sustained winds of 20 TO 30 mph are expected during the early morning hours, with gusts up to 45 mph.  The strong winds could make driving difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles and in areas were there's snow falling.
  By 1 a.m., transportation officials were reporting roads in northeastern Missouri as snow-covered, including portions of Interstate 70 through Warren and Montgomery Counties.  Most roads in St. Charles and St. Louis Counties were reported to be partially snow covered.  Current road conditions can be found on MoDOT's traveler website
   Illinois officials report roads and highways in central and northern Illinois are snow covered.  Current conditions can be found on IDOT's winter road conditions website
