    U.S. employers added 175,000 jobs in May, steady hiring but below the more robust pace that took place during the fall and winter.

   The Labor Department says the unemployment rate rose to 7.6 percent from 7.5 percent in April. The increase occurred because more people began looking for work, a good sign.

   The government said the economy added 12,000 fewer jobs in April and March.

   Employers have added an average of 155,000 jobs in past three months, below the average of 237,000 created from November through February.

    The modest gains likely mean the Federal Reserve will continue its bond purchases. The Fed has said it will maintain its pace of bond purchases until the job market improves substantially. The purchases have helped drive down interest rates and boost stock prices.

   

 

Questions raised over letter by Freeman Bosley, Sr

Thursday, 06 June 2013 06:40 Published in Local News

A sometimes controversial St. Louis City alderman is raising eyebrows by asking friends and supporters to help him pay for his daughter's college education.

Freeman Bosley, Senior is asking for help covering just over 14-thousand dollars in costs so that his youngest daughter can attend St. Xavier University in Chicago.  

Bosley says that's the amount left on the bill after grants and scholarships.  The request is raising ethic's questions.  But Bosley says it was a personal plea to friends and the letter wasn't sent on city stationary or campaign letterhead.  

He told Fox 2 News that he doesn't understand the criticism. "How is that inappropriate.  I didn't ask them to give it to me in my name. And I don't never let nobody give me nothing."

Although politicians in other states have been prosecuted for similar requests, Stacey Heislen, the acting director of the Missouri Ethics Commission says it doesn't appear that Bosley's letter violates any laws in Missouri.

 

A St. Louis firefighter is the first Missouri Lottery player to claim the top prize on a “Millionaire” Scratchers ticket. 60-year-old Bob Church of St. Charles  bought the winning ticket at Aro-Mart off  Harvester Road, in St. Peters May 21.

Church says, "My first day of vacation is when I scratched this off. I was on my way home from the firehouse."

Church has been with the Chesterfield Fire department for 37 years. He now says he and his wife Dawn can pay off their house and cars. He retires in October.
