STL not bidding for 2016 Dem convention

Thursday, 27 February 2014 04:38 Published in Local News

   The 2016 Democratic National Convention won't be held in St. Louis.  

   The Gateway City was one of about 30 cities to receive letters inviting them to compete to host the convention.  St. Louis officials plan to decline.  

   Mayor Slay's chief of staff Jeff Rainford tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the city is focused on the private fundraising efforts for the ongoing $380 million Gateway Arch grounds redo.  Rainford says its a really big project and must remain the focus for now.  

   He added that St. Louis might bid for the convention in 2020.  

US Maronite Catholics to ordain 1st married priest

Thursday, 27 February 2014 03:49 Published in Local News
   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Maronite Catholic Church in the United States is about to ordain its first married priest.
   A Maronites' spokesman in St. Louis says Pope Francis gave his permission for married Deacon Wissam Akiki to be ordained. The ceremony is set for Thursday.
   Maronites are among more than a dozen Eastern Catholic church groups in the United States. Eastern Catholics accept the authority of the pope, but have many of their own rituals and liturgy.
   Maronites overseas ordain married men. But the practice was banned in the U.S. in the 1920s. The U.S. Maronites' spokesman says the pope made an exception in this case and didn't lift the ban.
   Popes have made exceptions before for other traditions, including for married Anglican clergy who have joined the Catholic Church.
 

MO Lawmaker seeks access to experimental medicines

Thursday, 27 February 2014 03:45 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri lawmaker with a seriously ill daughter is encouraging colleagues to pass legislation that could make it easier for patients to gain access to experimental medications.
   A House committee heard testimony Wednesday on legislation by Representative Jim Neely that would let drug manufacturers give or sell medicines still in the investigational stages to patients. Neely says many terminally ill patients are willing to try medicines that don't have approval from the federal Food and Drug Administration. But he says access is limited to those medications.
   Neely is a Cameron physician whose 40 year old daughter is dealing with colon cancer and liver failure. He says the legislation may be too late for his own family but could help others.
   Several parents whose children have had serious illnesses testified for the bill.
