   Monday is the first day of school for public school students in the city of St. Louis.  And 20 district officials spent their Sunday morning in church, delivering a message to families, it's critical for children to attend school when classes begin.  

   Superintendent Dr. Kelvin Adams delivered his message to congregants at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in north St. Louis.

   "The data shows the students who are in school on the first day have a dramatic difference in terms of achievement and attendance," Adams said.

   Adams also told church-goers that the state isn't doing enough to help the unaccredited Riverview Gardens and Normandy school districts, which he predicts will go bankrupt by January.  

   This is the first time in five years that the St. Louis Public Schools have begun the school year as an accredited district.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities say the body of a missing St. Louis area man has been found in a canal on the Mississippi River.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 46-year-old Dennis McMenamy of Richmond Heights had been missing since Friday after the Illinois Conservation Police found his empty fishing boat. His body was found Saturday afternoon about 100 yards north of a canal near Granite City, Illinois.

The search for McMenamy began Friday afternoon when the crew of a towboat spotted the 18-foot fishing boat trapped at the front of a 15-barge tow headed south near the Chain of Rocks Canal.

Authorities said the towboat operators were unaware the barge had hit anything until another boater alerted them to the fishing boat stuck at the front of the tow.

OLD MONROE, Mo. (AP) — The arson arrest of a volunteer Missouri firefighter isn't as uncommon as some might think.

Lincoln County volunteer firefighter Dustin Grigsby was arrested Monday and accused of torching a garage, but authorities say he is suspected in 14 other suspicious fires in the Old Monroe area.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that across the country, an estimated 1000 firefighters are arrested for arson each year.

Researchers have for years tried to determine what drives firefighters to become arsonists, or if arsonists are drawn to be firefighters. The FBI and universities are among those seeking answers.

Grigsby is 19, and firefighter arsonists are generally 17 to 25, according to research by Matthew Hinds-Aldrich, an assistant professor of fire science at Anna Maria College in Paxton, Massachusetts.

WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (AP) — Firefighters in south-central Missouri have found the body of a 23-year-old woman who was swept away with her young son in floodwaters earlier this week.

Pulaski County Sheriff Ron Long says crews recovered the body of Jessica Lee late Friday in the Roubidoux River in Waynesville. Lee and her 4-year-old son Elyjah Lee were in a car that was swept off a roadway early Tuesday after torrential rains hit the area, flooding streets and damaging homes and businesses.

Long says the vehicle and the child's body were recovered about Tuesday in western Waynesville, but crews continued searching for Lee.

A southwest Missouri woman also died Thursday after another round of torrential downpours caused flash flooding that swept away her car near the town of Jane.

One man is in critical condition after shots were fired during an overnight brawl.

Police were called to the site of a large fight near the corner of Louisiana and Osage around 12:30 AM. Before officers arrived, witnesses say shots were fired.

When the officers pulled up to the scene and exited the car, someone pointed a gun at them. The officers ordered him to drop the gun, but he did not. Police opened fire and the suspect ran.

While police were looking for the suspect, they found a man who had been shot. That man is in critical but stable condition and police are investigating his shooting.

The suspect was captured a short time later.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Albert Pujols says he's taking legal action against Jack Clark after the former St. Louis Cardinals star accused him of taking performance-enhancing drugs.

The injured Los Angeles Angels' slugger released a statement Friday night, saying: "I am currently in the process of taking legal action against Jack Clark and his employers at WGNU 920AM."

Clark said Pujols' former trainer, Chris Mihlfeld, told him 10 years ago that he "shot him up."

Pujols is sidelined by a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot. He's in his second season with the Angels after 11 years in St. Louis.

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — A federal judge has again delayed the sentencing of a former Madison County treasurer to allow him to continue cooperating with a federal corruption investigation.

U.S. District Judge David Herndon on Friday delayed Fred Bathon's sentencing from August 30th until December 6th. Earlier this year the judge delayed Bathon's sentencing from May until August.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports Bathon's attorney filed a motion requesting the delay. Prosecutors didn't object.

Bathon pleaded guilty in February to rigging 2005-2008 tax lien auctions so that his political donors profited from inflated penalties paid by property owners.

Bathon could receive a prison sentence of between 31 and 40 months, though his sentence could be reduced because of his cooperation with investigators.
