    While the superintendent of Linden Community Schools is calling it an “honest mistake”, many others are wondering what the veteran teacher could have been thinking when she allowed students in her fifth grade class to try O’Doul’s beer. While O’Doul’s is advertised an a non-alcoholic beer, the beverage actually contains less than half of a percent (.5%) alcohol. “That was definitely a bad mistake,’ said Linden resident Susie Lamb. …

    Another New Jersey school principal -- the third educator in a month -- has been indicted on car arson charges in Essex County as prosecutors crack down on suspected insurance fraud. The charges against Amanda Wright-Stafford, principal of the Lincoln Avenue Elementary School in Orange, come as cases of auto insurance fraud are growing nationally, according to experts who blame the souring economy. Wright-Stafford, 51, faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted on charges she faked the theft of her 2000 Honda Passport, which was found burning in East Orange in 2006. An indictment handed up in Superior...

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - When Endeavour lifts off, former schoolteacher Barbara Morgan will be seated on the lower deck in the middle, exactly where Christa McAuliffe sat 21 years ago. And she'll be flying aboard Endeavour, the space shuttle that was built to replace the Challenger. Morgan, who was McAuliffe's backup, is used to all the comparisons. In fact, she welcomes them. "I think the great thing about it is that people will be thinking about Challenger and thinking about all the hard work lots of folks over many years have done to continue their mission," Morgan said last month....

    It's nothing unusual for a sixth grade class to be assigned a book to read -- usually something like Huck Finn. But a book that a Baker Middle School teacher suggested for her 6th graders is raising eyebrows and tempers. WAFB's Paul Gates investigated, and found a novel filled with sexually explicit scenes -- including men having sex together. Roberta Townsend says her 6th grade, 11-year-old daughter came home from Baker Middle with the name and author of a book her social studies teacher suggested the students should read. She says her daughter related the teacher's instructions: "She told them...

    ATHENS AL— Steve White, a [Democratic] political candidate [Alabama state House District 4 seat] and eighth grade [Science] teacher, was dismissed from his position late Tuesday night after an investigation found he showed videos with sex acts, nudity and other obscene images to students. “I think the evidence was clear,” said Dr. Barry Carroll, superintendent of Limestone County Schools, who recommended the Board of Education cancel White’s contract following the hearing. During a two-week-long investigation in April, Carroll said pornographic material was found in White’s computer and administrators determined that White was showing videos rather than teaching science in his...

    Webster's Dictionary defines famous as "widely known," but also "honored for achievement," while infamous is defined as "having a reputation of the worst kind," a synonym for "disgraceful." In the big business of celebrity journalism today, there is no discernible difference between fame and infamy. Today's celebrity journalism is only interested in that which is interesting , no matter how vile the atrocity. It will make all kinds of excuses for the infamous if they can be milked for Nielsen ratings points. Worse yet, it will pay the infamous for the privilege of wallowing in their vomit-inducing lives. Some of...
