Afternoon update: La Russa retires, Meth & prostitution arrests, Heroin hits Bluff

Happy Halloween to you!

Going out big: Tony La Russa retired as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals today, three days after winning a dramatic, seven-game World Series against the Texas Rangers.

Six people were arrested after a child was found in a Metropolis home with an active meth lab last night.

One of those six people was arrested for prostitution the day before.  In all, Illinois State Police arrested three women accused of prostitution at the Pony in Metropolis.

A big city drug is now hitting Butler County.  Holly Brantley takes a look at how heroin in the Poplar Bluff community could affect you and your family.

The clock is ticking for southern Illinois labor unions and campus leaders to reach a contract agreement.  Four Illinois Education Association locals set a strike deadline of Nov. 3.  But as Julia Bruck explains, if no agreements are reached, a strike could impact many far from the picket line.

Former longtime Franklin County Sheriff Bill Wilson has died.  He was 64 years old. 

The Union County Coroner says a man found dead in a BBQ style fire pit just west of Jonesboro died in a freak accident Sunday night.

It's beginning to look at lot like Christmas in retail stores across the country.  Long before the ghosts and goblins of Halloween show up on your doorstep, jack-o-lanterns in hand, many stores are already decking the halls - jamming every available square inch with Christmas cheer unseasonably early.

We've received so many creative photos of jack-o-lantern creations that we've created another slideshow!  Check out more works of art from Heartland News followers across the country!  Submit your photos with a description to cnews@kfvs12.com.  See more Halloween fun on our Halloween page
