A new wrinkle to the school transfer story today. The ACLU of Eastern Missouri sent a letter to the superintendents of Mehlville and Kirkwood schools asking them to reconsider their decision to place limits on the number of transfers they will accept from Riverview Gardens.

ACLU Executive Director Jeffrey Mittman argues that all students are guaranteed an education.

"There cannot be arbitrary government action that would limit that right", Mittman says,"so for example, you cannot say there is a date cutoff by which you need to make that selection, or a lottery that would limit the right of students to attend the accredited school that their families select."

Mittman says the ACLU is not issuing a mandate to the districts, but says the letter is intended to open a dialogue with school officials.

 

SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego's first-term mayor is beginning two weeks of full-time therapy while facing a sexual harassment lawsuit and calls for his resignation amid a flurry of allegations that he groped and forcibly kissed women for years.

Bob Filner's accusers, his one-time supporters and voters express skepticism that his therapy starting Monday is an appropriate remedy for what the mayor himself has described as years of inappropriate behavior toward women. Longtime therapists question how much progress can be made.

Neither Filner nor his office has released details about his therapy or its location. Filner is picking up the tab for the treatment.

He is set to be grilled by lawyers under oath Friday in the harassment lawsuit brought by his former communications director.

Powerball climbs to $400 million

Sunday, 04 August 2013 08:56 Published in National News

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — No one hit the Powerball jackpot on Saturday, so the money will roll over: A cool $400 million for the next drawing.

While hefty, the prize for Wednesday's drawing is still well below the record $590.5 million jackpot won in May by an 84-year-old Florida woman.

The winning numbers Saturday were 21, 24, 36, 42 and 45; the Powerball was 15.

The odds of matching all six numbers are 1 in 175.2 million.

Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
