MADISON COUNTY CORONOR RULES OUT FALL AS CAUSE OF DEATH OF CHESTERFIELD MAN

According to Madison County Coroner Stephen Nonn, it was not the fall that killed 20 year-old Chesterfield resident Michael Heney New Year’s Eve in Edwardsville.   The coroner’s report said Heney was at a residence on West Southcrest Circle standing near the backdoor when he suddenly fell forward and struck his head on part of the porch.  The incident occurred near 10:00 p.m. New Year’s Eve night.  Heney was taken to Anderson Hospital where he was pronounced dead.  Nonn reports the autopsy ruled out the fall or trauma to the head as the cause of death and no cause of death was found during the autopsy.  Routine toxicology tests are being done, which take about 4-6 weeks. Edwardsville Police continue their investigation.


SHIMKUS VOTES TO MAKE MOST BUSH TAX CUTS PERMANENT

Congressman John Shimkus voted to extend most of the tax rates he first voted for under President George W. Bush.  The package cut tax rates slated to go up January 1, 2013 and extended the farm bill.  Shimkus said, “This package will make the Bush tax cuts permanent for those under the income levels set in the agreement.  Maintaining the current tax rates is important for families and the economy.”  Tax items in the package include a permanent extension of current tax rates up to $400,000.00 income for singles and $450,000.00 for couples, permanent capital gain and dividend tax rates, an estate tax exemption up to $5 million, and retention of the $1,000.00 child tax credit.  The extended farm bill stops an immediate increase in milk prices and provides some certainty for farmers in the upcoming planting season.  The package passed the Senate 89-8 early New Year’s Day and the House late January 1.
