Appeals court ruling sides with archdiocese

Friday, 03 January 2014 14:55 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Missouri appeals court has ruled that the Archdiocese of St. Louis will not have to immediately turn over name of priests accused of sexual abuse in the past 20 years.
 
   A St. Louis judge had given the archdiocese a Friday deadline to turn over the names to a woman who sued, alleging that she was molested by a priest when she was a child, and to the woman's attorney. Otherwise, the names were to be kept under seal.
 
   The Eastern District of the Missouri Court of Appeals ruling on Friday did not say if turning over the names would eventually be required, or set a new deadline.
 
   Messages seeking comment from the archdiocese were not returned. The woman's attorney, Kenneth M. Chackes, called the ruling disappointing

Today's cold temperatures caused some tempers to flare in the Rockwood School District.

 

Parents were upset when officials sent a late cancellation notice to parents. Rockwood officials said on their Facebook page that they had to cancel classes because the cold temperatures put 20 buses out of service.  Another 85 buses did not have working brakes because of the cold.

 

Classes were canceled at 6:50 AM, but parents said that was too late. Many parents had already dropped their kids off at school.

Audit questions use of Katrina money in Mississippi

Thursday, 02 January 2014 15:38 Published in National News
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A new federal report says Mississippi officials accepted unsupported population growth estimates in developing a plan to use $653 million in federal Hurricane Katrina recovery money for water and wastewater facilities, including some that may not be needed.
 
The Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Inspector General also questioned appraisals used to buy private land.
 
In June 2012, The Associated Press reported on concerns raised by residents and officials concerning the population estimates and the use of eminent domain to acquire private land for projects that may not be needed for years, if ever.
 
Among other things, the report recommends that Mississippi put procedures in place so that future projects are based on "objective and relevant population data."
