Workers at the Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Springfield are reviewing security procedures after a man broke in to the basement.
The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports (http://bit.ly/1dIqzN9 ) a man from Marshall in southeastern Illinois pleaded guilty to trespassing and criminal property damage after being found in the basement earlier this month.
Jordan Clark was sentenced to time served and ordered to pay $3,000 in restitution.
Springfield officials say they're worried the federal government's partial shutdown may cut into tourism. That's because Abraham Lincoln's home _ one of the city's top tourists attractions _ is closed since it's operated by the National Parks Service. The site drew more than 295,000 visitors last year. The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports (http://bit.ly/1cqLqtj ) the closure comes after peak tourism season. The co-owner of a nearby restaurant says there's a noticeable impact on her business as foot traffic declines.
