Mann and Shenandoah Schools to stay open

Friday, 20 December 2013 08:31 Published in Local News

   Two south St. Louis schools will be renovated instead of being closed.  

   St. Louis Public Schools Superintendent Kelvin Adams recommended to the school board Thursday night that Shenandoah and Mann Elementary Schools remain open.  

   A 2009 study had suggested that both be closed and a single new school be built to replace them.  Adams says improvements in enrollment, academics and community support since then influenced his decision.  

   The proposed renovations would cost about $1.4 million.

Operation Block Leave underway at Lambert Airport

Friday, 20 December 2013 08:27 Published in Local News
   Today is one of the busiest days of the year at Lambert St. Louis International Airport.  Operation Block Leave, will send thousands of troops from Fort Leonard Wood through the airport today as they head home for the holidays.  And they'll pass through the James S. McDonnell USO along the way.  
   This year, as in every year, the USO and area businesses have teamed up to throw them a big party.  
   Former Marine and Iran Embassy hostage, Rocky Sickmann was there, representing one of the sponsor, Anheuser-Busch.  
   Sickmann told Fox 2 News that the sacrifices our military personnel make for the sake of our freedom shouldn't be forgotten, especially at the holidays. "This USO here, is a small way for us to say thank you, as they go back home to enjoy their holiday season," Sickmann said.
   The soldiers arrived at the airport to find food, music and other comforts as they wait for their planes home.
