Ark. panel reviewing rules on Voter ID law

LITTLE ROCK — An Arkansas panel is reviewing the rules for enforcing a new state law that will require voters to show photo identification at the polls before they can cast a ballot.

The state Board of Election Commissioners on Wednesday was scheduled to review the rules for enforcing the state's voter ID law, which takes effect next year. Poll workers are currently required to ask for identification, but voters can still cast a ballot if they don't show ID.

AP: Reputed Mafioso tip triggers new Hoffa body search

June 18, 2013

Tony Zerilli told his lawyer that Hoffa was buried beneath a concrete slab in a barn in a field in suburban Detroit in 1975. The barn no longer exists, and a full day of digging Monday turned up no sign of Hoffa. Federal agents resumed the search Tuesday morning.
