E-Cigarettes under fire in Chicago

Wednesday, 15 January 2014 10:48 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago's City Council is expected to vote on a proposal that would limit the use of electronic cigarettes.
The proposal that's set to be discussed Wednesday would expand the city's regulation of tobacco products to include e-cigarettes, barring their use in offices, indoor public areas and within a certain distance of building entrances.
Electronic cigarettes are metal or plastic battery-powered devices resembling traditional cigarettes that heat a liquid nicotine solution, creating vapor that users inhale. Users get nicotine without the chemicals, tar or odor of regular cigarettes.
But their popularity among young people has raised the concern of public health officials.
WLS-TV reports the proposed rules would also require merchants who sell e-cigarettes to keep them behind store counters.

Lincoln exhibit to feature Spielberg sets

Wednesday, 15 January 2014 10:17 Published in Local News
An exhibit about the award-winning movie "Lincoln" will open at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois on Friday. Museum officials say film director Steven Spielberg generally doesn't preserve sets from his movies, but "Lincoln" was so special he made an exception.
The sets, costumes and props arrived at the museum on loan from Spielberg and DreamWorks Studios.
   
Meanwhile, the couch where socialite Mary Todd received a gangly young lawyer named Abraham Lincoln will be restored. The Springfield Art Association has raised more than $4,500 to save the 180-year-old sofa.  The unveiling of the restored couch will be February 11.
