State lawmakers on Thursday handed Mayor Rahm Emanuel broad authority to create special taxing districts to help pay for four major rail projects, but the mayor and his administration would not detail how much money would be diverted.

The legislation, which lawmakers passed as part of a compromise on a stopgap state budget and an education funding bill, is designed to help City Hall come up with money it needs to match requirements to receive federal transportation grants and loans, Emanuel said. But the measure also grants the mayor and City Council wide discretion to create the so-called tax-increment finance districts within a one-mile-wide swath of land along 46 miles of Chicago Transit Authority rail lines throughout the city. The districts, which could remain in place for up to 35 years, would siphon off 80 percent of property tax revenue within their boundaries (with the exception of taxes for Chicago Public Schools) and dedicate the money toward four major transit projects.

When you think of monosodium glutamate (MSG), what is the first thing that comes to mind? More than likely it is Chinese cuisine, however, this same ingredient is also found in several other food products we use everyday.

A retired chief of the Texas Rangers, Whitman's law enforcement background is an intriguing match with an agency that primarily provides social work. Why focus on pay first?

Doing this right will cost hundreds of millions of dollars. But not doing it right has costs, too. If lawmakers go cheap on agency pay raises, they will be throwing good money away because there won't be enough incentive for workers to stay. It's worth noting that it costs taxpayers $54,000 each time a caseworker leaves the agency, according to recent a review of the agency.

A federal appeals court ruled on Thursday that there is no Second Amendment protection for concealed weapons - allowing states to prohibit or restrict the public from carrying concealed firearms.

At issue was California's law on concealed weapons, which requires citizens to prove they have "good cause" to carry concealed firearms to get a license. Plaintiffs challenged guidelines in San Diego and Yolo counties that did not consider general self-defense to be enough to obtain a license.

HELENA - Eight people with a Great Falls-based group spent nearly two hours Wednesday standing at a Helena intersection calling for more reforms to the state's Child and Family Services division and to protest recent findings by a state panel.

"We need to change the system because it's destroying families," said Georgia Miller, a member of Grandparents Protection Services, a community-based group of mostly grandparents who have held rallies before to draw attention to the issue. Wednesday's rally was at Montana and Custer avenues.

Year-long investigation will hear from social workers, birth and adoptive family members and adult adoptees.

The prime minister has made it crystal clear in recent months that he wants to see more children adopted, faster. But following two landmark appeal court cases, the brakes are firmly on: family judges are applying the full rigour of statute to local authority evidence when applications are made for adoption placement orders. The result, much to some politicians' vocal displeasure, is that the number of children placed for adoption has fallen significantly.

Hidden microphones that are part of a clandestine government surveillance program that has been operating around the Bay Area has been exposed.

Imagine standing at a bus stop, talking to your friend and having your conversation recorded without you knowing. It happens all the time, and the FBI doesn't even need a warrant to do it. Federal agents are planting microphones to secretly record conversations.

After years of collaboration with judges and court administrators, along with state and local representatives, County Executive Robert P. Astorino hailed Monday's opening of the new Family Court branch in Yonkers at the i.Park Hudson.

The streamlined facility will feature separate security-screened entrances for staff, prisoners and the public. That, along with a state of the art technical infrastructure and modern physical plant, will translate into savings of up to $20 million over the life of the lease, for Westchester taxpayers.
