St. Louis, Mo – St. Louis Archbishop Justin Rigali is delaying this week's scheduled treatment for prostate cancer because he has shingles. Rigali says he's in good spirits, and adds the new infection has to be treated before undergoing any surgery.
Rigali announced last week he'd have his prostate removed. At that time, he said he hoped to return to a full schedule by Easter.
St. Louis, MO – St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay joined a group of public and private housing agencies Friday to announce a program to increase minority home ownership. The Bridge to Homeownership program allows low-income families who now rent property through HUD Section 8 vouchers to buy a home.
Program sponsors say it will give new homeowners an opportunity to build equity and accumulate wealth, which in turn will expand the city's tax base.
