St. Louis Archdiocese bars alcohol at youth events

Thursday, 31 October 2013 04:09 Published in Local News

   The Archdiocese of St. Louis is banning alcohol at events aimed at minors, like youth soccer and softball games.  A group of clergy had unanimously approved the new rule last month (September).

   In a letter to parishioners last week, Archbishop Robert Carlson wrote that alcohol at games or other events directed toward minors "is not to be served to anyone or brought in by someone."  The new rule takes effect Friday. 

   Some athletic associations are expected to lose revenue as concession stand beer sales are prohibited.   But one member of the clergy group that approved the change told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that alcohol sales were already discouraged and many parishes already barred it, so the change just makes the parishes consistent. 

   Students at one Arnold school will have to attend classes off campus this morning.  That's because a 160 foot cell tower in the front yard of the Lone Dell Elementary School has become unstable.  It's leaning precariously and US Cellular engineers have said they're concerned that it could topple over.  

   Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies closed Tomahawk Drive and Gary Road in Arnold as a precaution.  

   School officials have said Lone Dell will hold classes this morning at the Rickman Auditorium in the 700 block of Jeffco Boulevard.

 

   The Fox C-6 School District posted the following letter on its website (http://www.fox.k12.mo.us/):

 

   Dear Parents,

 

    Late this afternoon at approximately 2:00 p.m. the district was contacted by US Cellular about the cell tower at Lone Dell Elementary.  It was inspected yesterday and results were issued today. The inspection failed.  As a precautionary measure, Lone Dell Elementary will have NO access tomorrow. The main safety concern is not the actual school building, but cars and busses entering the drive by the entrance where the tower is located.   

   The students will be picked up, as usual, at their respective bus stops and taken to Rickman Auditorium for school.  They will also utilize the Fox C-6 Service Center for their fall parties.  

   The safety of your children and yourselves is our top priority. As a preventative measure, we feel this is the safest solution for everyone involved.  It would be helpful if you could pack a lunch for your child.  However; if that is not possible our food service program will provided a cold sack lunch.  The children will be taken home at the regular dismissal time and dropped at their regular bus stops.  If you pick your child up, you will need to do so at the Fox C-6 Service Center at normal dismissal time.  

   Thank you for your support and understanding.  If you have any other questions related to this, please contact our office at 636-296-8000. 

 

   Thank you in advance for your cooperation, 

 

   Dr. Dianne Critchlow 

   Superintendent of Schools 

Loop Trolley project threatened by federal lawsuit

Thursday, 31 October 2013 03:33 Published in Local News

   There's more trouble for the much-delayed Loop Trolley project.  A federal lawsuit filed Tuesday aims to derail the $43 million dollar project on the grounds that the transportation development district set up to fund it is unconstitutional.  

   The lawsuit claims that giving nonresident property owners votes based on acreage owned violates the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause.  Residents were given a single vote.  

   Construction of the streetcar line between the University City Library and the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park is already more than a year behind schedule and the Federal Transit Administration has warned that the area could lose the $22 million "urban circulator" grant it was awarded in 2010.  Developers say that would doom the project.

   The suit names the Loop Trolley Transportation Development District, the Loop Trolley Company, the Metro Transit Agency, the cities of St. Louis and University City, St. Louis County and the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission.
