Chesterfield singer advances on NBC's "The Voice"

Wednesday, 17 April 2013 09:07 Published in Local News

One of the youngest performers on TV's "The Voice" is St. Louis-area coffeehouse singer-songwriter Caroline Glaser. 

18-year-old Caroline Glaser of Chesterfield  moves forward on the hit TV singing competition that airs locally on KSDK-TV Channel 5, Monday and Tuesday nights.

During last night's battle rounds, her mentor Blake Shelton decided to drop her in favor of a fellow contestant. 

But Adam Levine and Usher enacted their “steal” option, allowing her to stay on the show. Glaser opted to go to Levine’s team.

Special guest and fellow Missouri native Sheryl Crow appeared on the show as guest adviser to Glaser and her competitor.

 

St Louis police are trying to track down the driver of a hit and run who collided with another car on South Grand.

Investigators say both vehicles were northbound on Grand at Juniata when one of the cars cut into the traffic lane, clipping the other car and sending that vehicle into a light pole and newly installed traffic signal. The car flipped over from the impact. The female driver was not seriously hurt but the car is heavily damaged.

The driver responsible continued driving northbound on Grand and remains at large.

    

 

An abandoned factory in the city's near north side will house veterans and ex-offenders who are clients of St. Patrick's Center which helps the homeless.

 A grand opening and tours of the new low-income housing called St. Louis Stamping Lofts will be this afternoon.  The 56 lofts are located at Cass Ave.  and Collins  which is the four-story St. Louis Stamping Company building, built in 1870 and listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

Missouri Treasurer Clint Zweifel and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay will join partners North River Development, Pinnacle Entertainment and the St. Louis Equity Fund.  The housing was funded by a nearly ten-million dollar project financed by tax credits.

The residential facility also offers St. Patrick Center supportive services for people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, including veterans and ex-offenders and veterans.

 St. Louis Stamping Lofts is part of a larger planned development called FarmWorks. When completed, FarmWorks will include a green business incubator and urban farm. 

The incubator will focus on distribution and processing of locally grown foods. The indoor/outdoor farm will feature aquaponics, hydroponics, vermiculture and vertical growing systems. 

St. Patrick Center and Gateway Greening will partner on an innovative training and job placement program to help residents grow and market food.
