Tribune Co. to buy Fox 2 St. Louis

Tuesday, 02 July 2013 04:18 Published in Local News

   The number of companies owning St. Louis television stations is about decline again.  

   Chicago-based Tribune Company, which already owns KPLR TV (Channel 11) in St. Louis, is buying 19 stations from Local TV Holdings LLC, including KTVI (Channel 2).  

   The $2.73 billion  deal is set to close by the end of the year, and will make Tribune the largest commercial TV station owner in the country.

    The deal comes just weeks after the parent of KSDK (Channel 5) announced it was buying the parent of KMOV (Channel 4).

   Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul will stay in office after his temporary reinstatement was made permanent Monday.  

   During impeachment proceedings in April, Paul had been brought up on several charges, including trying to dodge a subpoena.   St. Louis County Circuit Judge David Lee Vincent has ruled that because the council added the subpoena charge at the last minute, Paul had no time to prepare a defense. "The City Council violated Paul’s procedural due process rights..." the judge wrote.

   Paul had been elected in 2012 after campaigning against tax increment financing for a shopping center project that includes a new Walmart store.

Normandy Dist. to bus students to Francis Howell

Tuesday, 02 July 2013 04:07 Published in Local News

   Normandy School District officials will meet with parents Tuesday to answer their questions after announcing that the unaccredited district will pay to bus students to schools in the Francis Howell District in St. Charles beginning this fall.  

   The announcement comes on the heels of a Supreme Court ruling allowing students attending unaccredited districts to transfer to high performing schools.  

   All Normandy students in grades K-12 can participate in the transfer program at the district's expense.  Parents can begin the transfer process July 9th at Normandy School District headquarters.  

  Tuesday's meeting with parents begins at 3 p.m. at the Normandy District offices.
