Worry over expiration of IL online wagering law

Monday, 21 October 2013 02:40 Published in Local News

   The Illinois horse racing industry could find itself in a bind if lawmakers don't renew a law allowing online betting that expires in January.

   Race dates at Illinois racetracks, including Fairmont Park, would be severely cut if lawmakers don't take action to renew the betting law and give Illinois' racing board access to money online wagering generates.  

   The issue could come up when the General Assembly convenes Tuesday.

   But even if lawmakers get it done, there's no guarantee Governor Quinn will sign it.  Quinn has said he won't consider other legislation until lawmakers fix the state's pension crisis.

Bacteria found in breast milk sold on Internet

Monday, 21 October 2013 01:15 Published in Health & Fitness

   CHICAGO (AP) - Doctors are sending a warning to new mothers who feed their babies with breast milk purchased online.

   A new study says testing shows the breast milk can contain potentially dangerous bacteria including salmonella.

   Researchers bought and tested more than 100 breast milk samples sold by women on one popular site, and 75 percent of those samples contained high amounts of bacteria that could sicken babies. Researchers did not identify the website.

   The research also cites several cases in which babies did get sick from a stranger's breast milk.

   Breast milk also is provided through milk banks, whose clients include hospitals. But they screen donors and pasteurize donated milk to kill any germs.

   Both online breast milk sites and milk banks charge fees.

 

Larry Flynt doesn't want man who shot him executed

Friday, 18 October 2013 04:27 Published in Local News

   LOS ANGELES (AP) - Porn publisher Larry Flynt says he doesn't want to see the man whose gunshots paralyzed him 35 years ago put to death for his crimes.

   In an essay published Thursday in The Hollywood Reporter, Flynt says that while he'd love to take pliers and a pair of wire cutters to Joseph Paul Franklin, he doesn't believe in the death penalty.

   The Hustler magazine publisher says keeping Franklin locked in a tiny prison cell for the rest of his life is a greater punishment.

   Franklin has been in prison since 1980 for a string of shootings that left five people dead and others wounded.

   He is scheduled to be executed November 20th in Missouri.

   Franklin targeted blacks, Jews and people like Flynt, who he believed promoted interracial relations.
