NORMANDY, Mo. (AP) - The Normandy School District in St. Louis County is changing course and will pay transportation costs for students who transferred away from the unaccredited district.

But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Normandy is still refusing to pay tuition costs.

A Missouri Supreme Court ruling requires unaccredited districts to pay transportation and tuition costs for students who transfer to better-performing districts. Normandy board members voted last week not to pay.

In a special meeting Thursday, the board agreed to pay $108,000 to the bus contractor hired to bus about 440 children to the Francis Howell School District. The board did not reconsider the $1.3 million in September tuition payments for the 1,000 or so students who have left to go to Francis Howell and 13 other districts.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Alcohol sales will be banned at youth-related events within the Archdiocese of St. Louis starting Friday.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Archdiocese of St. Louis' new policy prohibits drinking at any events directed primarily toward minors, including sporting events. That means athletic associations will no longer be able to generate revenue from beer sales at concession stands.

The change was announced by Archbishop Robert J. Carlson in a letter to parishioners last week. He says the change was passed unanimously by an advisory committee of clergy in September, but the letter did not give a reason.

Some St. Louis-area Catholics say the change will hurt parish fundraisers. Others say there's no need for alcohol and children's events.
