Home prices on rise in St. Louis area

Monday, 25 March 2013 11:39 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Real estate agents in the St. Louis area say it is no longer a buyer's market.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the number of homes for sale in the St. Louis region is down 13 percent over the past year based on information from Zillow, a real estate sales website. Meanwhile, more houses are selling.

Sales rose 13 percent last year in St. Louis County, and 10 percent in the first two months of 2013. Lower supply and higher demand is pushing up home prices, though some areas, including much of north St. Louis County, are still seeing declines.

Mo. Sen. McCaskill supports gay marriage

Monday, 25 March 2013 11:22 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill says she believes gay couples should be able to marry.

The Democratic senator announced her support for gay marriage on her blog. She says churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside their religious beliefs, but she believes "government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love."

McCaskill's announcement comes the same week that the U.S. Supreme Court is to hear a challenge to California's gay-marriage ban.

Missouri voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2004 limiting marriage to a man and a woman.

As recently as last year's Senate campaign, McCaskill said she supported states' rights to decide gay marriage and had no quarrel with Missouri's vote.

President Barack Obama announced his support for gay marriage last year.
