City seeks caretaker for Soldiers Memorial

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis leaders are pursuing changes to the operations of the city-owned Soldiers Memorial Military Museum.
The downtown museum's collection of war letters, weapons, uniforms and other artifacts has been neglected for years. The museum also needs more than $6 million in repairs. The city has tried several times to find another caretaker for the memorial.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Taylor family, which owns Enterprise Rent-A-Car, is interested in a multimillion dollar overhaul of the museum, and establishing an endowment.
Jeff Rainford, chief of staff for Mayor Francis Slay, says the memorial's fundraising board is talking to other groups that have shown interest in participating in efforts to fix the museum. He says it's early and no commitments have been made, but prospects for help are encouraging.

Enterprise expanding to offer Harley Davidson

Enterprise Rent-A-Car is bringing some more excitement to the industry.

The St. Louis-based company is starting a pilot program that will allow customers to rent a Harley-Davidson. The program is starting in the Sin City, Las Vegas. Enterprise will become the first major car rental company to rent motorcycles in the US. If the Vegas operation succeeds, the program could expand.

Be warned, it is pricey, with prices running between $120 to $160 a day.
