On Wednesday, the St. Louis Board of Alderman had good news for Northside Regeneration Project developer Paul McKee and the city's unemployed. 

A committee of alderman approved one amendment to the $390 million tax increment financing package. The amendment forces the NorthSide project to comply with the First Source Jobs Policy, which mandates that any unemployed city residents get priority for entry-level positions. A $250,000 fund will be established to help with home repair for resident and $1 million will be set aside for neighborhood planning in other parts of north city.

The bill now moves to the full Board of Alderman and could get final approval as soon next week. McKee says he will use TIF funds to complete some street and sewer work and would break ground this year.

North Dakota - AP - A school superintendent in North Dakota will resign after he says he took a gun to school to protect himself.

Tioga Superintendent D'Wayne Johnston said in an interview Wednesday that he brought the weapon to the high school on Oct. 2 because of a threat from a boy that resulted in the student's expulsion. Johnston says he should have instead asked for more help from police.

Johnston refused to go into detail about the threat but says the boy had previous discipline problems.

After several people saw the gun, Johnston acknowledged carrying it.

The school board accepted Johnston's resignation at an emergency meeting Friday. The resignation takes effect at the end of the school year.

District officials don't think the incident will result in any criminal charges against Johnston.

St. Louis City Water and Street crews are being credited for their fast work after a water main break in downtown.

The pipe burst in the early afternoon. Water crews were forced to dig out a large hole in the middle of Clark Street in front of the police headquarters. Work was initially planned to carry into the night, causing traffic problems as fans head downtown for the Cardinals and Blues games.

Instead, crews repaired the main and placed steel plates over the hole so they could reopen the road. Work to fill in the hole will happen at a later time.
