Atlanta area slowly rebounding from winter storm

Friday, 31 January 2014 03:21 Published in National News
   ATLANTA (AP) — Hundreds of drivers have been reunited with abandoned cars and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal ordered state employees back to work as the Atlanta area rebounds from a winter storm that coated the area with snow and ice.
   Many school districts throughout the metro area announced that they'd remain closed Friday, and Deal extended a state of emergency to Sunday night.
   He said in a statement that the declaration was extended to allow the state to continue using certain resources to help local governments clear roads and deal with other storm-related issues. Deal and emergency response officials have taken responsibility for poor planning leading up to the storm.
   Temperatures in the region are expected to reach the low 50s Friday, which should help responders clear ice accumulations from roads.

Staffing changes coming to Mayor Slay's office

Friday, 31 January 2014 01:29 Published in Local News

   St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay is shuffling the desks, and job titles of some of his city hall staff.   He's bringing in some new faces to replace some who are retiring.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that long-time alderman Fred Wessels is giving up his seat on the Board of Aldermen to take over the community development administration.  He'll replace Jill Claybour, who retired.  

   Former police board commissioner Richard Gray will be the new director of public safety, and current director, Charlene Deeken will be Gray's deputy.  

   Several other staffers will switch jobs.  

   All of the changes take affect on Monday.

   As the end of the St. Louis Rams lease of the Edward Jones Dome draws nearer, team owner Stan Kroenke may be looking at moving the team back to Los Angeles.  

   The Los Angeles Times cites multiple sources in reporting that a holding company tied to the billionaire developer just purchased a 60 acre tract of land in Englewood, Calif. an L.A. suburb.  It had reportedly been the site of a planned Walmart, but the store was never built.  The land has also long-been considered as a possible site for a football arena should Los Angeles get another NFL team.

   Its not clear how Kroenke plans to use the land, but the purchase does give him new options when the Rams' lease ends after the 2014 season.
