Mayor Slay rings bell for Salvation Army

 

ST. LOUIS, Mo (KTRS) -- City officials, including Mayor Slay joined forces Thursday afternoon to support The Salvation Army.
 
Employees, volunteers, soldiers and students from Carr Lane Performing Arts Academy filled City Hall with holiday carols. 
 
Mayor Slay and other officials were out ringing the bell to support The Red Kettle Campaign. Donations support various shelters, food baskets and toys for children who may not receive a gift this holiday season.
 
Mr. Slay says, "The Salvation Army does a lot to help some the most vulnerable in our community, our neighbors who need a hand help. Some of the them who do not have a place to lay their head at night, like many of us are fortunate to have."

   A U.S. Congressman and the Mayor of St. Louis will both go before the Board of Aldermen this week in hopes of forwarding the long-stalled Northside Regeneration Project.  

   Aldermen are considering a bill that would tweak developer Paul McKee's nearly $400 million tax increment financing package to account for delays suffered while the city fought a lawsuit against it.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the fate of the project's TIF is unclear.  

   Congressman William Lacy Clay and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay will speak in favor the 1,500 acre project.  But only one of the five aldermen whose wards make up the project area just north of downtown, 5th Ward Alderwoman Tammika Hubbard, clearly supports Northside.  

   And one, Alderman Freeman Bosley Senior, has threatened to block the bill if there isn't more community input in the project and better protections for current homeowners.

Two St. Louis Police officers are in the hospital after being shot Wednesday night while answering a home alarm call in Baden. The officers had been called to a boarded up home in the 900 block of Elias Avenue about 11 p.m.

Police say a man at the home fired shots at the officers without warning.

The officers returned fire, striking the suspect several times. He's in critical condition at St. Louis University Hospital.

Both officers were taken to Barnes Hospital. A 31 year old female officer was shot in the foot. A 26 year old male officer was shot in the back. Both are expected to recover.

A teenager shot and killed last week while allegedly trying to break into a south city home is the same teen charged in a "knockout game" attack that made headlines.

Fifteen year old Demetrius Murphy had been charged in the 2011 attack on Matt Quain, the man Mayor Francis Slay and his body guard had found bleeding at the curb along South Grand.

Murphy had been charged in the attack, but those charges were dropped after a young witness refused to testify in that case.

Quain spoke with Fox 2 News Monday night after learning about Murphy's death. "You know, I'm not happy that somebody died," Quain said. But he did say he wished the violence would end. "I wish there was more that people could do to put an end to it."

Murphy's alleged burglary accomplice, 17 year old Michael Bryant is facing murder charges in the 15 year old's death. The homeowner is not expected to be charged.
