BURLINGTON, Iowa — A house used as a supported community living home suffered an estimated $30,000 worth of damage after a fire broke out. Burlington firefighters were called to the scene around 11 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 23.
The fire was contained to a second floor bedroom and attic space, which was under control within a few minutes, says the Burlington Fire Department. Three residents and an employee inside the home were able to get out of the house without injury.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Burlington fire and police departments, and is considered suspicious.
URBANA, Ill. (AP) — University of Illinois pumpkin crop experts say this year’s harvest looks to be much better than last year, when yield losses were predicted.
Illinois plant pathologist Mohammad Babadoost says the pumpkin crop in Illinois had enough rain, but not too much and temperatures were warm and dry, “which pumpkins love.” Illinois is the country’s top pumpkin-producing state. About 90 percent of the pumpkins grown in the U.S. come from within a 90-mile radius of Peoria.
Unlike last year, Babadoost says there will be “no shortage of pumpkin pie at the

Everyone evacuated the home safely.
The house was being used as a group home for Self Reliance Inc. Three residents were inside along with one employee.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa school districts are holding more than $145 million in their accounts, but superintendents say restrictions on that money is making it hard to spend.
The money in dozens of different funds has grown since 2013 when the total was about $130 million, so school officials are lobbying for more flexibility, the Des Moines Register reports.
Iowa State Board of Education member Mary Ellen Miller says the legislature should look at the rules on this money, so it’s not just sitting in bank accounts.
But some lawmakers say the districts should just spend the money fo

AMHERST, Wis. (AP) — Disorderly conduct charges are pending against a woman who authorities say smeared peanut butter on 30 vehicles outside a gathering in central Wisconsin that she mistakenly thought was a Donald Trump rally.
Investigators say the Monday night conservation group meeting in Amherst had nothing to do with politics, WSAW-TV reports.
Authorities say the 32-year-old woman was drunk when she entered the meeting and began yelling about how she hates Trump. She departed when asked to leave, but authorities say she then used peanut butter to draw phallic symbols and write profaniti
MOLINE, Illinois — It may have been a week early, but it certainly looked like Halloween at Prospect Park in Moline on Saturday, Oct. 22. Hundreds of children got into the Halloween spirit early, trick-or-treating their way through the park.
The day started off with spooky story time, before the candy grabbing began but the latter didn't last long. So many kids showed up that Spooktacular ran out of candy. However, many of the children stayed for the free magic show.

MUNDELEIN, Ill. (AP) — The family of a 14-year-old Illinois girl who killed herself is suing the local school district, arguing that it neglected to follow protocols that could have prevented her death.
The lawsuit accuses Mundelein High School District 120 of not having an up-to-date suicide prevention policy when Mikyla Wren died in October 2015 that was required by a new state law. The girl’s family isn’t seeking monetary damages.
The lawsuit says her mother asked for an immediate risk assessment from the school social work department after being told her daughter used the wor
CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) — Labor union officials are criticizing staffing levels at the Iowa Medical and Classification Center prison, but state officials defend their hiring and say the prison is filling its vacancies.
Danny Homan, president of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees Iowa Council 61, says the reduced staffing contributed to a recent incident where four inmates tested positive for methamphetamine.
Homan told Cedar Rapids television station KCRG the prison in Coralville had 583 total employees in 2009. That dropped to 525 in 2015.
