This is a few months old, but the WSJ highlighted Missouri as a top travel spot for 2019. While the tag line is a little annoying, glad that the arch and other development downtown as well as Cortex continues to make headlines. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wsj.com/amp/articles/the-10-most-intrig...
Does Apple already have a presence in Pittsburgh and Boulder?

Not that these stories aren’t always ridiculous, but in the middle of the day??? Is it that they don’t fear reprisal for these actions or that they get so caught up in some conflict that they don’t care that there are cameras everywhere? https://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/on-a-busy...
I still come back to the fact that if this was as great a deal as it's made out to be, why aren't the county or Illinois going all out and outbidding the city for it? The fact that we haven't heard too much noise about either trying to swoop in should be some form of signal. The MLS communicated th...
A forum hosted by Better Together called "Reimagining St. Louis" is scheduled for October 30th. Scott Ogilvie, among others, is scheduled to speak.

Stifel acquired another firm (from the looks of their website, the firm is located in San Francisco): https://www.stltoday.com/business/local ... 29a68.html
Take a look at who falls at the second spot: https://www.forbes.com/sites/kurtbadenh ... -startups/

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...
