   Parents with children in the Riverview Gardens and Normandy school districts have a lot to consider before the August 1 transfer deadline.  

   The Children's Education Alliance of Missouri hosted a town hall meeting Monday night to help parents wade through the complicated transfer process.  

   CEAM State Policy Director Kate Casas says parents need to know their kids can go to any nearby, accredited district, and not just the ones their home districts will bus to.  "It's really about getting accurate information and putting the power in the hands of parents to make the right choice for their own kid," Casas said.

   The applications must list the student's three top choices of accredited districts.  School assignments will then be based on a lottery system.  The transfers will only last until the student's home district regains accreditation.

   The meeting was held at the Lewis and Clark Library in the Riverview Garden's School District.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — A U.S. Army general has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault charges that could send him to prison for life.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Monday Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair told a military judge at Fort Bragg he is not guilty of charges that include forcible sodomy, indecent acts, violating orders and adultery.

Jury selection is set to begin for Sinclair's court martial on Tuesday with the trial scheduled to begin Sept. 30. In the military justice system juries must consist of officers with superior rank to the accused. In Sinclair's case that will requires a panel of generals with two or more stars.

Sinclair is a 27-year Army veteran who commanded troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is accused of twice forcing a female officer to perform oral sex.
