St. Louis group seeks out the homeless in cold

Sunday, 15 December 2013 08:41 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The onset of cold weather means that volunteers with Winter Outreach in St. Louis have sprung into action.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the grassroots organization offers eight temporary shelters with a combined 100 beds or so to help the homeless when the temperatures turn cold.

Volunteers drive and walk around the city and St. Louis County, seeking out those in need of shelter. The organization also shuttles people to shelters from the Bridge, a feeding program at Centenary United Methodist Church downtown.

The Housing Resource Center in St. Louis said that 14,155 people requested shelter through the city and St. Louis County through the end of November, but nearly three-fourths of them were unable to be referred to an open space.

4 dead in weather-related crashes on Missouri roads

Sunday, 15 December 2013 08:39 Published in Local News

CAMDENTON, Mo. (AP) — Wintry weather has contributed to four deadly crashes on Missouri roads in two days.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says one person died Friday morning in Camden County when a vehicle crashed into a minivan after sliding on ice. Later Friday morning in Phelps County, a second person died when a car lost control on an icy road and overturned.

A third person died around noon Friday in Franklin County when a vehicle lost control on an ice-covered bridge and veered into oncoming traffic. The fourth victim died Saturday morning in Henry County when a pickup truck began sliding and hit a tree.

The patrol identified the victims as 42-year-old Karla Brown of Camdenton, 16-year-old Charity Adams of Licking, 23-year-old Whitney Gabathuler of Herman and 80-year-old William Dulaban of Deepwater.

Planned Braves stadium move highlights race, class

Saturday, 14 December 2013 08:09 Published in National News

ATLANTA (AP) — For the Braves, abandoning downtown Atlanta for the suburbs means moving closer to the team's fan base and developing money-making restaurants and amenities.

Team officials say it's simply good business.

Their decision also highlights long-standing disparities over wealth, where people live and transportation. Those facets of life are connected to race and social class in Atlanta. The Braves will be moving from an area that's predominantly black and relatively poor compared to whiter Cobb County — where the team says more ticket-buyers live.

Although it is long past segregation, the hometown of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King is far from integrated, and the city's politics, business and even sports teams reflect that gap. The Braves said they made their decision was not driven by race or class.
