    The stock market is up, but it's too little, too late for many charities. For the second year in a row, the United Way of the Texas Gulf Coast expects to take in less money than it had hoped. The organization raised just $68.25 million last year, $10 million below its goal. The current campaign is projected to raise $65 million, perhaps less, campaign co-chairman Terry Koonce said. The goal was $70 million. The predicted shortfall is bad news for agencies that depend upon the United Way, some of whom also have lost other sources of funding. Many have cut...

    An alert teenage boy saved his younger brother from being sexually assaulted when a Plymouth janitor in a town-owned hall allegedly tried to take off his pants, authorities said. ``My oldest son did something that you wouldn't think a 14-year-old could do - he was smart enough to deal with the whole situation,'' said the boys' father, who didn't give his name for fear either son would be identified. ``It could have been a lot different. I shudder to think about it.'' The teen accompanied his 6-year-old brother into the bathroom of Memorial Hall in Plymouth when the janitor, Andre...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Michael Jackson, addressing his fans directly via a new Web site, says the child molestation allegations made against him are "predicated on a big lie" and he will be exonerated in court.The entertainer's spokesman, Stuart Backerman, had said last week that Jackson was putting the site together so he could communicate with the news media and fans. Jackson said in his statement that it would serve as a source for "official communications on my case.""As you know, the charges recently directed at me are terribly serious," Jackson said in the six-paragraph statement. "They are, however, predicated...

    Posted on Fri, Nov. 21, 2003 REVENGE PLOT ON JACKO? By JOHN F. MORRISON COULD IT have been a "scorned woman" who did Michael Jackson in? A TV reporter said yesterday that when Jackson tried to end financial support for the family of the 12-year-old boy who has accused the singer of molestation, the boy's mother "ran to a lawyer." Jackson's legal team is expected to argue that the boy's mother became "scorned" when Jackson stopped supporting her and the boy, and decided to get revenge. "She's very screwed up," a source told Fox News reporter Roger Friedman. "There's...
