Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

Illinois Nuns Are Suing Strip Club

Updated: Friday, June 20 2014, 09:17 AM CDT

STONE PARK, Ill. (AP) -- Nuns living in suburban Chicago are suing a strip club next to their convent, saying they have to deal with drunkenness, litter and public violence.

The Sisters of St. Charles named Club Allure Chicago and the village of Stone Park in their lawsuit, claiming the club violates Illinois zoning laws. Those laws mandate 1,000 feet between adult entertainment facilities and schools and places of worship.

Sister Noemia Silva says the nuns "hear the music when they're praying" and they're fighting for the club to close. The sisters' property includes three chapels.

Stone Park Village Attorney Dean Krone says the village has acted legally and reasonably. Club representatives say they aren't a nuisance to the nuns and the claims have no backing.

The lawsuit was filed Friday in Cook County court.
