School transfers to cause financial problems

Saturday, 03 August 2013 07:55 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The state's top education official says an unaccredited St. Louis area district is expected to run out of money this year paying for students to transfer to accredited districts.

Missouri Education Commissioner Chris Nicastro said Friday that the state would be going to the Legislature for help.

The Riverview Gardens and Normandy districts are unaccredited, and a recent Missouri Supreme Court ruling allows students to transfer to accredited districts. Estimates show the transfers could cost the districts as much as $30 million.

Nicastro says the state is trying to determine when Normandy won't be able to cover its expenses. State data shows Normandy had $8.6 million in reserve and Riverview Gardens $28.6 million at the end of the 2011 through 2012 school year, the most recent year information is available.

The low-interest loans will be offered in the city of St. Louis and in St. Louis, St. Charles, Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln and Warren counties.

Homeowners, renters, business owners and nonprofit organizations may apply for the loans to repair or replace property, equipment and inventory damaged by floods, high winds hail and tornadoes.

Missouri officials confirm third case of stomach bug

Saturday, 03 August 2013 07:48 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri health officials say they have been notified of a third confirmed case of cyclospora infection.

The state Department of Health and Senior Services said Friday the latest report of the stomach bug came from a health provider in the Kansas City metro area. The others were reported earlier this week from Jackson County and Taney County.

The state health department said the sources of the Missouri cases have not been confirmed, and it's not clear if they're linked to cyclospora infections in more than a dozen other states.

Officials in Iowa and Nebraska have said they believe cases those two states are linked to bagged salad mix.

Cyclospora infections are mostly found in tropical or subtropical countries. Symptoms include diarrhea, severe stomach cramps or nausea.
