    Heather Stilwell, the former chair of the Surrey School Board who led a contentious fight to ban books on same-sex couples, has died of breast cancer. She was 66. A fierce anti-abortionist, and supporter of Christian family values, Stilwell served on the Surrey School Board for 15 years. She was co-founder of the Christian Heritage Party, whose platform was to make abortion and possession of pornography illegal. As chair of the Surrey School Board in the late 1990s, she led the charge to ban three books in schools on same-sex couples. The case ended up in the Supreme Court of...

    Garry Gross, a fashion photographer for 30 years who was best known for controversial photos of an unclothed 10-year-old Brooke Shields, died on Nov. 30 at his home in Manhattan. Mr. Gross, who in recent years had focused his cameras on dogs, was 73. He died of natural causes, his sister, Linda Gross, said. In 1975, before Ms. Shields became known as a child actress, her mother, Teri, signed a contract allowing Mr. Gross to take a series of photos of Brooke, in thick makeup and bejeweled, sitting and standing in a steaming, opulently decorated bathtub. Mother and daughter received...

    A 14-year-old boy who allegedly was sexually molested by a female guidance counselor can't sue his school even if it was negligent in hiring and supervising her, a state appeals court has ruled. Friday's decision by the Second District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles might surprise parents who have been assured that schools are legally responsible for their kids' safety. But it's only a step beyond the state Supreme Court's 1989 ruling that threw out a suit against the Oakland Unified School District by a junior high student who said his teacher molested him during a school-sponsored work session...

    A pro-life group is accusing the national Planned Parenthood abortion business of misrepresenting a recent Centers for Disease Control report on teen birth rates.The new CDC report provides more evidence that abstinence education decreases teen sexual activity and pregnancy, but Planned Parenthood  put its own spin on the numbers to promote its childhood sex education programs, says officials with American Life League.“This is another illustration of how Planned Parenthood uses deception at every level to promote its deadly agenda,” said Rita Diller, national director of Stop Planned Parenthood International (STOPP), an ALL project.The recently released CDC report entitled “State Disparities...

    Six men who alleged they were sexually abused by an Oregon Boy Scouts leader in the 1980s have settled their lawsuits against the group's national organization for undisclosed amounts, the plaintiffs' attorney said Wednesday. The settlements include the case of one man, Kerry Lewis, who was awarded nearly $20 million in damages from Boys Scouts of America in a trial that ended in April. It was believed to be the largest such award against the national organization. A jury found the Texas-based group negligent for allowing a former assistant scoutmaster, Timur Dykes, to associate with Scouts after he admitted to...

    Marcel Williams is plopped down on a couch in his family's duplex apartment. The stillness is unusual for the 14-year-old, who a few years ago roamed football fields as a star running back for the national champion Flagler Junior Pee Wee Bulldogs. Since then, Marcel said he had been earning A's and B's at Buddy Taylor Middle School, where he also expected to continue playing football this year. Instead, school just started and Marcel finds himself slouched on the couch, expelled from the classroom and the football field until next year because of something called "tea-bagging" -- a crude taunt...
  • Woman who allegedly bragged about sex with boy waives hearing (Stupid AND Guilty!)

    A 42-year-old woman accusing of having sex with a 14-year-old boy in Bath and then bragging about it at work gave up her right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday and her case will head to Northampton County Court. The boasting by Theresa E. Kasznicki not only led to her getting fired from her job at an insurance company, but to a police investigation that landed her in Northampton County Prison, according to court records. Her attorney Tuesday waived the hearing before District Judge John Capobianco under the condition that a plea agreement is in place in court.

    Boy Scouts shouldn't be able to meet in Boulder's public schools because they openly discriminate against gays, according to the local chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. Johanna Blumenthal, with the Boulder County ACLU, sent a letter today to officials with the Boulder Valley School District arguing that the Boy Scouts are a discriminatory group because they have openly defended the right to exclude homosexuals from membership. The ACLU raised the same concern in 2001, but is now buffering its argument with a recent Supreme Court ruling. The ACLU is asking the district to change its policies so that...

    The National Education Association (NEA) continues to alienate more and more of its conservative constituents as the organization showed its liberal leanings at its 2010 national convention. At this year's meeting in New Orleans, the largest professional organization and labor union in the U.S. recognized a new caucus: the NEA Drag Queen Caucus. (See list of recognized NEA caucuses [PDF]) "They already have had the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, [and] Transgender Caucus and apparently felt that the drag queens needed their own caucus," explains Finn Laursen, executive director of Christian Educators Association International (CEAI).

    A Michigan woman said she was remorseful for having sex with the teenage son she gave up for adoption as a baby before being sentenced Monday to at least nine years in prison. “I don’t understand it,” Aimee Louise Sword said, referring to her actions. Sword, a 36-year-old Waterford Township resident, was charged with three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. In early June, she pleaded guilty as part of a plea bargain to one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. Sword’s son was 16 when he testified at the preliminary exam in January that Sword contacted him in May...
