St. Louis didn't get the MLS, but McKee got more time and the chance to buy stadium site

- St. Louis may have missed a chance to build a Major League Soccer stadium and lure a team, but developer Paul McKee still managed to score. The push to win an MLS team earlier this year gave McKee’s NorthSide Regeneration and its primary lender, the Bank of Washington, more leverage over the city. To help pay for the proposed stadium, the city needed McKee to agree to let the city use a portion of the tax-increment financing revenue generated from development within his 1,500-acre NorthSide Regeneration TIF

    Buy Photo. A year ago, the Michigan Legislature passed legislation bailing out Detroit Public Schools, sending a $617 million lifeline to the financially failing district. The law sought to address many of the district’s challenges, not just the monetary ones. Yet a year later, several key provisions are not being implemented. While not perfect legislation, lawmakers and Gov. Rick Snyder’s team worked hard to come up with a plan that would give Detroit schools a fresh financial start, in addition to turning back control to a locally elected school board

The two relatives were close as children and once served as flower girl and ring bearer at a 1994 wedding, the Huffington Post reported
