   The Riverview Gardens School District will pay $3,675 each day to bus about 1,400 transfer students to Mehlville and Kirkwood.  That was the winning bid among six companies vying for the contract.  

   The half-million dollar contract with First Student Transportation was approved Tuesday.  The unaccredited district will also pay about $12,000 in annual tuition for each transfer student.  

   District officials say their finances are stable for this school year, but there could be trouble if the transfers continue next year.

   Fans heading to the Edward Jones Dome for a Rams game this season, will need leave their usual purses, backpacks and diaper bags at home.  That's because the National Football League has ban all but clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags inside stadiums for the 2013-2014 football season.  

   The bags can't be bigger than 12x6x12 inches.  NFL approved tote bags will be sold in team stores and on-line, but a one-gallon freezer bag will also be accepted.  And fans can still take in their palm-sized clutch purses.  

   NFL officials say they changed the rules to improve security after the Boston Marathon bombings.

   More information about the new policy can be found on the NFL's website

One St. Louis alderwoman seeks to shrink the size of city government.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Ward 16 representative, Donna Baringer, is seeking the office of license collector, only to eliminate it. Baringer would fill the vacancy left by Mike McMilan who left to lead the St. Louis Urban League.

Baringer says she wants to implement a plan that would merge the office's duties with those in other departments. According to the Post-Dispatch, this work would be done by the end of 2017.

The city's license collector issues business licenses.

The former Cardinal who is in hot water for his comments linking Albert Pujols to performance enhancing drugs has hired a noted St. Louis attorney.

Jack Clark has retained Chet Pleban to represent him in any litigation started by Pujols.

GRANITE CITY, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities issued charges against an East St. Louis man for the death of a Cahokia man who was found in an Illinois state park lake on Sunday.

Scott L Thompson, 42, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder for the death of 20-year-old Dakota Jones.

Illinois State Police say Jones’ body was found Sunday morning in the water near a boat launch ramp at Horseshoe Lake State Park near Pontoon Beach.

Authorities say Jones died of blunt force trauma, and evidence at the scene indicates the case was a homicide.

Illinois State Police Capt. Jim Morrissey says Jones had been dead less than 24 hours when his body was found.

Thompson was taken into custody on Sunday and remains in police custody with no bond.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court has affirmed the conviction of a southeast Missouri man who was sentenced to death for the ambush killing of a state trooper in 2005.

Lance Shockley of the southeast Missouri town of Van Buren was convicted of first-degree murder for killing Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Carl Dewayne Graham Jr., who was shot in the back of the head just as he had returned home from work. Graham had been investigating Shockley for a fatal traffic accident.

Shockley has been on death row since 2009. His appeal cited a litany of alleged procedural errors at trial, claimed a juror was tainted and said the sentence didn't fit the crime. The Supreme Court disagreed in a unanimous ruling.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to a law that raised the state's licensing fees on animal shelters.

The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the lawsuit by the Humane Society of the United States and two animal shelters was moot. The court noted that the suit challenged the procedure by which a 2010 licensing law was passed, but that lawmakers had changed the law again in 2011.

The 2010 law made animal shelters subject to the licensing fees already charged to dog breeders. The 2011 law raised Missouri's maximum licensing fee from $500 to $2,500 for commercial breeders, kennels and animal shelters.
