San Diego soccer group wants development plan on ballot

Voters in St. Louis City rejected a plan on Tuesday that would partially fund a new soccer stadium with public money.

The ownership group SC STL would invest $95 million in the project and cover the league's $150 million expansion fee, and they have asked the state to donate 24 acres of unused land.

MLS leaders have expressed strong interest in St. Louis, but only if voters agreed to public funding.

A first-time All-Star in 2015 who lost an AL-leading 19 times last season, Archer limited NY to two runs and seven hits. Gary Sanchez , last year's sensation, went 0-for-5, including leaving the bases loaded in the seventh inning.

In a statement released after the vote, MLS said "For many years we have believed that St. Louis would be a tremendous market for a Major League Soccer team, but the lack of a positive stadium vote is clearly a significant setback for the city's expansion opportunity and a loss for the community".

The new stadium would have near Busch Stadium, home of baseball's Cardinals, and the Scottrade Center, home of the NHL's Blues.

Voters passed Proposition 1 for MetroLink expansion with 60.4 percent of the vote, but voted against Proposition 2, with 52.8 percent voting "no".

What the death of broadband privacy rules means
A federal appellate court ruled recently that the FTC lacks jurisdiction to bring enforcement actions against broadband providers. Widely praised by privacy and consumer advocates when it was finalized past year , the rule hadn't yet taken effect.

Veteran Democratic City Council woman Lyda Krewson would become the city's first female mayor and replace Francis Slay. That move occurred despite St. Louis offering to finance the majority of a stadium that neared $1 billion in proposed costs, dampening the city's willingness to fund a stadium.
