The Riverview Gardens School District has chosen Kirkwood as it's second choice to send its transfer students, but Kirkwood says it only has room for 100. Over 1,100 parents in the unaccredited Riverview Gardens district have applied for the transfer program. The Melville School District has said it would accept 150 students. Riverview Gardens will have to pay around $12,000 per transfer student. The deadline for transfer applications for Normandy and Riverview Gardens is Thursday.
Officials in Tavares, Fla., say there've been injuries but no deaths after a series of explosions rocked a gas plant.
Authorities had first feared that as many as 15 workers at the Blue Rhino propane plant could have been killed when several blasts late Monday blew off the building's roof.
But all the workers are accounted for. Seven people were taken to local hospitals.
A former St. Louis Police officer was sentenced to five years probation for a Christmas Eve drunk driving incident. Michael Schinner avoided a DWI charge after driving the wrong way down a one-way street and slamming into another police car on Christmas Eve 2011. He pleaded guilty to two counts of assault in May. A passenger in Schinner's vehicle suffered serious head trauma. Court records show the former officer smelled of alcohol, but he refused a blood test. Among the conditions of his probation, Schinner must avoid alcohol, attend AA meetings, and complete 60 hours of community service.
