(AP) -- A business owner in the central Illinois
community of Heyworth is facing felony charges after authorities say he had
seven illegal video gambling machines in his bar.
Authorities say that David Rehker's case
is the first in McLean
County since the state
approved video gambling last year.
Rehker was released on bond after
investigators seized the machines from Circle II Bar and Grill. No telephone
listing for him could be found.
Video gambling became legal in bars,
clubs and truck stops in October. But business owners are required to get a
license for the games and have to replace their old machines.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
