Clayton-Richmond Heights Patch and other sites around the U.S. will be looking for ways to capture changes in the economy, business and more.
We're excited to inaugurate a new series for Clayton-Richmond Heights Patch readers called "Dispatches: The Changing American Dream."

A tenant questioned the status of the building at 1500 S. Big Bend Blvd. in Richmond Heights at a chamber of commerce meeting earlier this week.
Tenants at a commercial building on South Big Bend Boulevard in Richmond Heights don't have to worry about relocating even though the title to the site has changed hands, building management said Friday.
