    A 12-year-old boy is suspended from school for 'staring' at another student. It happened in September of 2014 at St. Gabriel Consolidated School in Glendale. The parents filed suit in Hamilton County Common Pleas court to try and get the suspension erased claiming the school didn’t give their son due process. A Judge denied the claim, which means as of now the suspension of the 12-year-old stands. “The perception is he intimidated her,” said Candice Tolbert, his mother. “My son stared at a girl who was engaged in a staring game,” she said. “She giggled the entire time,” she said...

    A 15-year-old girl was prevented from joining the terror group Isil after police dramatically stopped her plane on the runway at Heathrow.

The flight, which was heading to Turkey, was turned around while officers took the youngster off and returned her to her family. However, in an unrelated...

    When we remember the Jewish children thrown alive into ditches by the Nazis and then think about the  little girls outside Walmart selling cookies, it seems an offense to decency to suggest any comparison between the Bund Deutsche Madel (League of German Girls, or BDM) and the Girl Scouts.  Nevertheless, both Nazism and post-1960s American feminism (neo-feminism in this essay) envision exclusionary, utopian socialist societies.  Both indoctrinate girls from a young age to advance their visions.  And there are parallels in structure, activities, and ethos.Changes to the Girl Scout Law reveal the core of the shifts from individually focused, morally...

It was “not clear” whether she had been shot or stabbed, said Dr. Danny Fink. Security...

    OWA CITY, Iowa – When it came time to draw up a budget, one of Iowa's regional Girl Scout councils reviewed its programs and made a proposal that would have been unthinkable a generation ago: selling its last four summer camps. Troop leader Joni Kinsey was stunned. For decades, the camps had been cherished places where thousands of young girls spent summer breaks hiking, huddling around campfires and building friendships. Kinsey, whose daughter learns to train horses at camp, immediately started a petition to fight the idea. Other scouting alums and volunteers have taken up the cause, too, packing public...
