CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says he has spoken to President-elect Donald Trump by telephone and mentioned Chicago's status as a sanctuary city for immigrants.

Emanuel said Trump called him to talk about the White House transition. Emanuel is a former White House chief of staff to President Barack Obama and also worked in the Clinton administration.

Emanuel spoke about the call at an unrelated event Monday. The mayor said he discussed \"a range of things\" with Trump. He said he specifically mentioned Chicago being a sanctuary city, which means city employees and police officers can't ask residents about their immigration status.

During the presidential campaign, Trump promised to withhold federal funding for sanctuary cities.

Emanuel didn't offer more details about the call.

URBANA, Ill. (AP) \u2014 Faculty at the University of Illinois' flagship campus have given Chancellor Robert Jones a petition asking that the school become a sanctuary for immigrant students illegally living in the country.

The News-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/2gNlPD5 ) the petition signed by more than 2,300 people was given to Jones on Monday. Jones has said he wants to study the legalities before taking a position.

Members of the campus' Senate also on Monday approved a resolution calling on the school to commit to maintaining what the measure called a climate \"free from hostility.\"

The resolution stemmed in part from an Oct. 10 incident in which campus police interviewed students in an African-American studies class about a stolen cellphone found in the class. The professor and students were upset police came into the class.

WOODSTOCK, Ill. (AP) \u2014 Longtime state Rep. Jack Franks is moving from Democratic maverick in the Illinois House to leading the heavily Republican McHenry County Board.

The Northwest Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2g60Iwp ) that Monday was Franks' first official day on the job as board chairman.

In a speech prior to his first board meeting, the Marengo Democrat said he wants to work with other board members to reduce taxes, improve roads and provide higher-quality services to residents.

Franks has served since 1999 in the Illinois House, where he was known for breaking with his party, particularly on tax and spending issues.

McHenry County voters elected him chairman last month.

Franks' 63rd House District seat will be filled in January by Republican Steven Reick. He won election in November, helping Republicans pick up four House seats.

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 The new Cook County prosecutor says she plans to reshape the office as Chicago deals with police-involved shootings and increasing numbers of homicides.

Kim Foxx was sworn in last week as the newly elected top prosecutor in Cook County and will be in charge of one of the largest state's attorney's offices in the country. The 44-year-old is the first African-American woman to hold the post.

Foxx told the Chicago Tribune on Monday (http://trib.in/2gHXDSq ) that she wants to create a unit to target firearms trafficking and also wants to revamp the team that reviews potentially wrong convictions.

Foxx defeated former state's attorney Anita Alvarez in the primary and won the general election last month. During her campaign she vowed to make the office more transparent.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) \u2014 More people are taking advantage of a Des Moines bike sharing program, and backers of the effort say they want to expand further by installing more kiosks in the city's downtown and outside the core area.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/2g6v3pU) the BCycle program, started in 2010 by the Des Moines Bicycle Collective, grew to 10 kiosks last summer. Jeremy Lewis, the collective's executive director, told the City Council on Monday that ridership has soared by 45 percent since the expansion.

Now the group wants to double the program's size starting with a kiosk near the front doors of the new downtown Hy-Vee grocery store and plans to expand to Drake University.

The collective has raised $450,000 in private money for next year's expansions. Each kiosk costs about $35,000.

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) \u2014 A 30-year-old man has been given 35 years in prison for shooting to death and robbing a man in Waterloo.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that (http://bit.ly/2he23ll ) Orlando Moore Jr. was sentenced Monday. He'd pleaded guilty to robbery and involuntary manslaughter. He must also pay $150,000 in restitution to the estate of his victim.

Prosecutors say Moore killed 26-year-old Anthony \"T.J.\" Gardner, of Des Moines, in a dispute over money on Dec. 22, 2012.

Black Hawk County Attorney Brian Williams says trouble with reluctant witnesses led to a plea agreement that reduced a first-degree murder charge to involuntary manslaughter.

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 Officials say a man has been arrested and Chicago train service has resumed after disruptions due to an unauthorized person on the tracks.

The Chicago Transit Authority says normal service resumed about 8 a.m. Tuesday after more than five hours of disruptions on its Green and Pink lines. That included the morning rush hour.

Police were notified about 2:40 a.m. Tuesday of a man walking back and forth on the tracks in the West Loop area. Officials say a man was taken into custody about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.

A negotiator was among those who responded and was trying Tuesday morning to get the man to come down off the tracks. At one point authorities inflated a large air bag below the tracks in case the man jumped.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) \u2014 The Latest on the protest against the Dakota Access oil pipeline (all times local):

9:40 a.m.

Some opponents of the Dakota Access oil pipeline who have been protesting for months in a rural camp in southern North Dakota rode out an overnight blizzard at shelters in two local towns and at a tribal casino.

The storm brought several inches of snow, winds gusting to 50 mph and temperatures that felt as cold as 10 degrees below zero.

Morton County set up shelters at school facilities in Bismarck and Flasher. Spokeswoman Maxine Herr says about 30 people took advantage of the shelters.

Many protesters stayed overnight at the Standing Rock Sioux tribe's casino, which is near the camp.

Pipeline opponent Michelle Cook says the brutal weather is just \"a test of everybody's resolve,\" and that the camp will prevail through the winter.

6:10 a.m.

A spokesman for President-elect Donald Trump isn't offering many clues about how the incoming administration will act regarding the disputed Dakota Access oil pipeline.

Spokesman Jason Miller told The Associated Press on Monday that Trump supports construction of the pipeline. But Miller wouldn't say whether Trump would reverse the Army's decision on Sunday to decline to issue a permit for the $3.8 billion pipeline to cross under a Missouri River reservoir in southern North Dakota near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

Miller said the Trump administration will review the situation \"and make the appropriate determination.\"

Protesters, who describe themselves as \"water protectors,\" say they have no plans to leave despite the Army's decision and recent wintry storms.

The pipeline is largely complete except for the section under Lake Oahe.
