Missouri: State of Emergency Stays in Place in Ferguson

Published August 14, 2015 by godshope1971

Ferguson will remain under a state of emergency for at least another night, county officials said on Wednesday. The state of emergency, which gives the St. Louis County police oversight of security in the city, was declared after a shooting near a protest Sunday night to mark the one-year anniversary of the death of Michael Brown. The decision came after two nights of relatively peaceful protests, with the police reporting no arrests during a demonstration Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. County Executive Steve Stenger said he believed it was “prudent to continue the state of emergency for at least the next 24 hours.” ∞∞∞∞∞ MORE »»»»

Missouri: Woman sues credit reporting firms for declaring her dead

Published August 3, 2015 by godshope1971

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A 40-year-old St. Louis woman isn’t dead, but she said she spent months trying to convince credit reporting agencies that she’s alive.

Alexandria Goree is suing Experian, TransUnion and Equifax over the glitch, contending that it was difficult to get loans or a new home, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1SnvzRT ) reported.

Her suit, filed last week in federal court, said Goree found a “deceased” notation on her credit files in the summer of 2013. Such a notice can appear when a creditor informs a reporting agency that one of its customers has died. ∞∞∞∞∞ SEE MORE ∞∞∞∞∞
