St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - A Missouri State Representative is throwing his hat in the ring to be considered for St. Louis County Executive.

 

Rick Stream filed paperwork Monday morning. Stream said he will continue his work as chairman of the state budge committee. He plans to begin campaigning later this year.

 

Stream was elected to the Kirkwood School Board and served as its president from 1998 to 2000, before joining the Missouri House.

Loop Trolley project gets federal grant

Monday, 24 March 2014 12:53 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) – A project to link the Loop retail district in St. Louis with nearby Forest Park has won a $25 million federal grant.
 
The 2.2 mile route would begin in University City and run along Delmar Boulevard to the Missouri History Museum. The federal grant would cover more than half the cost of the $43 million project.
 
Local businessman Joe Edwards first proposed the trolley project nearly 20 years ago. Streetcars served the area until the mid-1960s.

Southern California no longer bank robbery capital

Saturday, 22 March 2014 15:06 Published in National News

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California used to be known as the "Bank Robbery Capital of the World."

No more.

The Los Angeles Times reports the number of robberies has declined, part of a larger trend that has seen crime rates fall across the nation.

There were 212 bank robberies last year — the lowest since the 1960s — in a seven-county region overseen by the FBI's Los Angeles office.

During the worst year in 1992, more than two dozen Los Angeles banks were robbed in a single day.

Authorities say better security at banks such as bulletproof acrylic glass has made it harder for bandits to get access to money. They also credit the ability to make high-resolution images of robbers available to the public through the Internet.
