Mounted Police return to Forest Park

Tuesday, 22 October 2013 07:54 Published in Local News

Four years after the discovery of lead paint forced closure of the St. Louis Mounted Police stables in Forest Park, the stables are open once again. The stables were closed for remediation in 2009. Lt. Carlos Ross says three police officers and one park ranger are certified to ride six horses, but he is seeking to increase those numbers. The St. Louis Mounted Police Unit dates to 1867. The unit disbanded in 1948 but was re-established in 1970.

 

St. Louis labor numbers released

Monday, 21 October 2013 10:24 Published in Local News

New labors numbers for the St. Louis area show the City lags behind the rest of the county when it comes to employment, however jobs are on the rise. Data released today by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows an unemployment rate of 7.4 percent in August 2013, compared to the national unemployment rate of 7.3 percent over the same time period. The good news is that the St. Louis metropolitan area added 11,000 jobs, which is up 0.8 percent over the past year. But that's still behind the national pace, where employment rose 1.7 percent from a year ago. 

Mo. public defender system cites budget crunch

Monday, 21 October 2013 09:09 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The head of Missouri's public defender system says furloughs may be necessary if Gov. Jay Nixon does not release additional money for the system by January.

   The Jefferson City News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1h0dUe6 ) that state Public Defender Cat Kelly sent notices last week to judges warning them that the system could face staff shortages. She said a hiring freeze would start Nov. 1 and furloughs could kick in two months later.

   Nixon withheld $1.4 million from the public defender system when then budget year started July 1.

   A spokeswoman for Nixon's Office of Administration says the public defender system and many other agencies had 4 percent of their budgets restricted - slightly more than the standard 3 percent that's kept in reserve.
