   ST. JOSEPH, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson says one of the hostages shot during a hostage standoff at a rural bank has died.

   The suspect had initially taken three hostages Tuesday afternoon in St. Joseph but later released one of them.

   The gunman - identified as 20-year-old Fuaed (FOO-od) Abdo Ahmed - later told negotiators he would kill the remaining two hostages. Edmonson says state police entered the building just before midnight Tuesday and that's when the suspect shot the hostages before being shot and killed by police.

   Edmonson said he didn't have any other information about the hostage who died. The condition of the other hostage who was shot is unknown.

 

   

   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.

NFL bans all but clear bags from stadiums

Wednesday, 14 August 2013 00:42 Published in Local News

   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
