STL City shelter to remain open despite budget overrun

Thursday, 23 January 2014 01:27 Published in Local News
   With dangerous sub-zero wind chills back in the St. Louis area, city officials are scrambling to fund an overflow shelter for the homeless that's already blown its budget.  
   The mayor's office says the community center at Tucker and Park costs about $1000 a night to keep open.  It provides shelter for 125 people.  The city's budget allotted for 20 days of operation this winter.  But because of the unusual amount of cold and snow, the shelter has already been open for 27 days, and the winter is only half over.  
   St. Louis Human Services Director Bill Siedhoff told Fox 2 News that the budget can't dictate the city's response to the cold.  "Mayor Slay has made it very clear," Siedhoff said.  "This is a necessity.  We will find the money.  We will find it some place.  We have to.  It’s a responsibility the city has."
   Siedhoff says the shelter will remain open as long as the extreme weather continues.

Kerry: No place in Syria transition for Assad

Wednesday, 22 January 2014 03:18 Published in National News
   MONTREUX, Switzerland (AP) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says there is no way that Syrian President Bashar Assad can be part of a transitional government that's being discussed at an international conference aimed at ending the country's brutal conflict.
   Kerry said Wednesday at the conference that Assad has lost his legitimacy to lead after an "appalling assault" on his people and cannot regain that legitimacy.
   Kerry said the meeting, which is aimed at forming a transitional government for Syria, poses a serious challenge for the world as it marks the beginning of "tough and complicated negotiations."  He urged countries present to unite around bringing an end to the suffering of the Syrian people.
