    PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona judge on Monday set a September court date to try again to determine whether convicted murderer Jodi Arias will be put to death for killing her ex-boyfriend nearly six years ago, court officials said. Arias was convicted by a jury in May 2013 of murdering Travis Alexander, whose body was found slumped in the shower of his suburban Phoenix home in June 2008. He had been stabbed multiple times, shot in the face and had his throat slashed. But the jury deadlocked on whether the former California waitress should be executed or face life in...

    For years Greg Quinlan juggled a double life, going to church, entering Bible College, chasing gay sex. The tension nearly killed him, he said. “I was torn,” he said. “I had to either come out of the closet or commit suicide. I was more afraid of facing God.” So he dropped his faith and lived as an openly gay man who learned to lobby on behalf of gay and lesbian issues through his volunteer work for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). He was particularly enamored with the group’s black-tie fundraisers. The group, he said, was a refreshingly professional organization that...
  • Should Alimony Die a Quick Death?

    " today’s world, in which women have fought for the right to equality, alimony seems more like a kid getting an allowance from daddy and I believe it should be abolished altogether except for extremely dire circumstances where a spouse is older, cannot work at all, and for only a short term period. No man or woman should be held to being a slave to an ex-spouse after a marriage ends. That said, if we are going to have alimony laws, I believe that men and women should be held to an equal standard under the law."

    Whether you've dated a friend's ex, or experienced the agony of having a friend date one of yours, many describe it as playing with fire. So is there ever a time when it's acceptable to date a friend's old flame? "I once had a friend date my ex," snarls Jodi P., a successful thirty-something marketing manager. "We had recently broken up and I had no idea about it until she rang me up to gloat about it the following week. Of course I told her I was fine with it, but as I hung up the phone, I proceeded to...
  • Working women more likely to divorce

    Women working full-time are 29 per cent more likely to get divorced than those who stay at home and raise children. Research to be published this week in the European Sociological Review finds that the probability of divorce is in direct correlation to the number of hours a woman worked. Marilyn Stowe, a female divorce lawyer, suggested that working women had the economic freedom to consider life beyond marriage. She added that they had greater confidence in their ability to make new friends and find new partners. "You suggest going out to work to a woman who has been at...

    Irey files to challenge Murtha Barbara S. Miller Wednesday, March 08, 2006 Washington County Commissioner Diana L. Irey, an all-but-announced Republican congressional candidate, has taken the first formal step toward a bid to unseat veteran Democratic U.S. Rep. John Murtha. Neither Irey nor her media consultant, John Brabender, returned phone calls for comment Tuesday after Irey's name was listed among those having filed as candidates in Harrisburg, and her secretary said she would not be in the Washington County commissioners' office, where she took few questions last week on her pending decision. "Petitions are being circulated. If I'm going to...

    It occurs to me I haven't written anything humorous for a while. For a season, my life revolved around court dates in Pittsburgh to obtain PFA's (Protection from Abuse) from my ex-boyfriend. There's not anything really fun to write about that whole matter... but at least I have some closure now. In order for my ex to sign a temporary six-month PFA, he wanted three conditions. 1) A picture of my cats (I say mine because they were pooping in litter boxes in my apartment long before he began stinking up my bathroom)

    Ex-Ark. Governor Loses Bid to Change Plea By KELLY P. KISSEL Associated Press Writer Jim Guy Tucker LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A federal appeals court rejected former Gov. Jim Guy Tucker's bid to withdraw his guilty plea in a tax fraud case that arose during the Whitewater investigation of his predecessor, Bill Clinton. Tucker admitted in 1998 that he conspired to impede the Internal Revenue Service by hiding the sale of a cable television business. The plea came two years after he was convicted of fraud in a case also brought by Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth Starr. Tucker resigned but was...

    A former Osceola County fire chief is facing charges of running a million-dollar marijuana-production operation from a house near Holopaw in rural southeast Osceola. A tip led deputies to a house owned by former Fire Chief Jeffrey Ray Hall, 42, who now lives in Melbourne. Hall's partner in the operation told investigators the two were taking in $15,000 a month by growing and selling an especially potent variety of pot known as "crippy," which fetches a higher street value, the Osceola Sheriff's Office said. The sheriff's community-response team found 460 marijuana plants, 18 pounds of pot and several grow rooms...

    A FORMER topless dancer who was famously cleared of battering a Florida nightclub patron with her huge breasts, has shed her oversized silicone implants and put one of them up for auction on eBay. Tawny Peaks, as she was known professionally, said yesterday she had retrieved the implants from a box in her closet after watching a television program about bizarre items sold on the internet auction site. She said she would autograph the size 69-HH implant for the winner but would keep its mate. As of last night, the top bid was $US2300 ($2927).

But asked if she had any idea of her husband's sexual identity during their marriage, she said, "I never knew." The governor's second wife, Dina Matos McGreevey,...

    They come to a Capitol Hill apartment each Thursday evening for fellowship and Bible study. They talk, as many in Christian fellowship meetings do, of the power of God in their lives: how the Lord has helped heal family relationships for one, given strength for a job search to another. But just as frequently, they speak of their painful struggles to reconcile their faith and their sexuality, for this is a local meeting of Evangelicals Concerned Western Region -- a group for gay and lesbian evangelical Christians. In the publicity surrounding last month's Supreme Court decision to decriminalize gay sex...
