ARCHBISHOP CARLSON’S PAL A SEX ADDICT

Just released Catholic church files show that years ago, St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson chose as his spiritual advisor a Minnesota priest who later admitted he was a sex addict. Carlson admits becoming the twice-accused child molesting cleric’s “close friend” and spiritual advisor too. The documents show that Carlson’s involvement in clergy sex cases go back to 1997. The records are available at AndersonAdvocates.com.

NORMANDY SCHOOL DIST. TRANSFER POLICY

The State Board has reversed its previous transfer policy and will allow
more students to transfer. In June, the Board voted to prohibit students
who did not attend Normandy High in 2012-2013 from transferring in
2014-2015.

DAVID GREGORY’S CONTRACT WINDING DOWN

Time is running out, according to David Gregory’s contract as moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” television’s longest-running show in the U.S. In the last half of the year, the show was down an amazing 43 percent in ratings. In the second quarter of 2014, the show fell to third place behind CBS’ “Face the Nation” and ABC’s “This Week.” “Meet the Press” ratings began its decline following the death of Tim Russert. Who could succeed Gregory? Chuck Todd might become the heir as could “Today” show anchor Savannah Guthrie.

MATT HATHAWAY, MARTIN SIGILITTO ON “AMERICAN GREED”

St. Louis is the focal point for the next two episodes of “American Greed” on CNBC. Tomorrow night’s episode highlights the U.S. Fidelis auto warranty matter and stars ex P-D reporter Matt Hathaway. Also featured is Thompson Coburn lawyer David Warfield, who repped the creditors committee. A week from tomorrow, it’s “Bishop” Martin Sigilitto’s turn. (Many of his victims were members of the Racquet Club – so does anyone care?)

NORMANDY SCHOOLS COLLABORATIVE FLIPS LESSONS

The Collaborative has flipped the traditional of coming to class and
teachers giving classroom lessons and lectures and students doing
homework at night. Beginning next school year, students will view their
teachers’ recoded videos of lessons only on the outside of class. Then,
during class, teaches can work with their students one-on-one.

MICHAEL SAM’S ENDORSEMENTS

His jersey has outpaced everyone’s except Johnny Manziel’s. However, “Sam needs to make his football team and that’s not a lock,” opined Bob Williams, CEO of Burns Entertainment. Sam has done spots for Visa showing him weightlifting and voice over, “Judge me for what I do on the field.”  Sam’s corporate sponsorship would tap into the LGBT consumers with an estimated $800 billion in expenditures.

A-B IN BEV ADVERTISING, ARCHBISHOP ROBERT CARLSON, SIGHTEM IN THE COUNTY

A-B InBev buys media itself via its Busch Media in-house group. Domestic spending on all brands: $575 million. Now the account is being pitched by a number of agencies, a plum assignment. Starcom agency is in jeopardy of losing the account. . Earlier this week, Archbishop Robert Carlson was criticized for keeping secret about the identities of 63 credibly accused child molesting clerics. (The number comes from the church records disgorged in the recent civil suit against the now-defrocked Fr. Joseph Ross.) And in a new editorial this week, Carlson’s St. Louis Catholic Review opines (evidently with no irony) that “All of us in the Church (must) continue the crusade against abuse assertively and transparently.” The prelate is upset about controversial Louisiana Supreme Court ruling that is attracting national attention and that he says threatens “the sanctity of the confessional.”
