Looks like there won't be a big exodus out of STL for Express Scripts, at least for now: http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/ ... op-story-1
Breaking the Democrat's hold on the City and electing a truly Independent mayor. This "stay the course" crap needs to end, and soon. So tell us explicitly what the other party will do to fix the city. Based on what the legislature is doing and their devotion to Rex, it could lead to disaster. Would...
This is crazy: http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/four-people-shot-in-north-st-louis-police-say/article_48695aef-2518-5866-83a6-7486945c52ab.html#tracking-source=home-the-latest I interview a fair amount of people from other cities applying for jobs in STL as part of my job. When I ...
How is the 8th ward special election shaping up? I've literally never seen more people complain about the way canvassers talk to them than people in Shaw. I've tried to pay attention and figure out who I'm going to vote for based on issues, but people who advocate for both candidates spend their ti...
^ Bruce Franks did not like Jimmy Edwards' comments on TWTR. Paraphrasing, he wanted the conditions that people live in which leads to murder to be addressed. People do realize that killing someone is considered a bad thing and is also against the law, correct? Regardless of "conditions" taking ano...
The city is looking for question submissions for a townhall-style event for the six final candidates for police chief. You can submit your questions here: http://bit.ly/CAC_Townhall.

I submitted four myself. The townhall takes place on Thursday, the 14th from 6-8PM at SLU Law School.
A few thoughts as someone who has admittedly been somewhat consumed by the increase in crime in our scrappy city. First, it’s a terrible problem that likely has snowball effects for our reputation across the country. While our fragmented region argues within itself about what to do, other cities who...
I live in Shaw, as well, so this was troubling to hear. I received an email from our neighborhood association president letting us know that an emergency meeting with our alderman and police representative was in the works. To an earlier poster's point, I think the cops can make their presence more ...
This was a headline on the KSDK website yesterday: http://www.ksdk.com/article/news/crime/ ... -491507537
I'm not the biggest supporter of Prop P, but those who I know who plan on voting yes are oftentimes doing so as a result of stories like this. I increasingly feel like no political leaders are willing to actually address all facets of this issue. Yes, we have a storied history of racism, our police ...
It looks like Amazon is looking for a second HQ location. The city/metro should be on top of this: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2017-09-07/amazon-hunting-for-second-u-s-headquarters-to-host-50-000-staff I've already emailed Krewson asking about the city's intentio...
There is a lot here, so I won't respond to every point you make, but I do want to make a few comments about this (and other threads like it): First, let address the hysteria Yes, St. Louis City has many issues that impact its success - however you define that. Yet, these issues are similar to many o...
St. Louis has the safest suburbs in the nation. But I also show that having safe suburbs does not correlate to high suburban property values. In fact, across the 50 largest metro areas, urban crime contributes more to low suburban home values than does suburban crime. In fact, urban crime appears t...

I wonder what we can do as individuals invested in the success of the city (and the metro area in general) to start holding our elected officials more accountable to addressing this issue? I understand this is top of mind and important to all of them, but it really has to be THE TOP issue for each o...
Yeah St.Louis is the biggest sh*t hole in america despite Detroit declaring bankruptcy several years ago despite Cleveland losing nearly losing more than half of its population, despite high praise and accolades Pittsburgh seems to get, it still can't keep its population from dropping, despite Chic...
Probably not much. A focus on limiting police powers, failed democratic philosophies, drug trade, and a lack of any will whatsoever to implement a no tolerance policing model probably the bigger reasons. I think Republican and Democratic solutions and philosophies both tend to come up short - espec...
So sick of this crap. Solution: All cops no longer carry guns. Or all cops no longer can use guns on black criminals/citizens. Or just pull the cops off the streets. Not every cop shooting is racially motivated. Local media needs to quit fueling the fire IMO. In the last 72 hours - cops have killed...
I'll start this by saying that I am resident of the city and was unhappy to hear that the Taste of SAINT LOUIS was moving out of St. Louis (proper). However, upon speaking to some other folks, I wonder if my initial reaction is a reflection of the extreme "localism" we seem to have here. I...
My wife and I had a 230 person reception at The Westin by the ballpark last summer. It went really well and the staff there are great.
I just received an email from a developer in McRee about this new restaurant slated to open in October: http://www.saucemagazine.com/blog/?p=20138.

It looks like three different places are supposed to open there in the next few months.
I was on the downtown home tour and was able to check this building out. The common areas seemed pretty nice, but the individual units didn't seem to match the requested prices. There were many other units on the tour throughout downtown that were advertised at a lower rate and seemed much nicer. W...
