    ONSET -- She eluded police for more than a day, but officers -- with the help of a police dog -- captured 18-year-old Gina Giovangelo near a wooded area this afternoon. Giovangelo is facing motor vehicle homicide charges after she allegedly failed to stop after striking Lillian White, 47, Tuesday night in Hyannis. White, who was in a wheelchair when she was hit, died several hours later. The police arrested Giovangelo, who lives at 73 Vandermint Lane, after they questioned her Thursday evening — two nights after the crash. She was released on $10,000 cash bail and ordered to appear...

    Lindsay Binegar was 14 the first time she spent any winnings from years of showing hogs. She bought a purse. The second time, at 18, she splurged. She bought a four-bedroom, two-bathroom house with a two-car garage. And she paid in cash. "I've never heard of a teenager buying a house," said Nikki Gasbarro, spokeswoman for the Ohio Association of Realtors. "Smart girl." The Greenfield teenager has been saving money since she was 4 years old and won $100 showing a hog. "I didn't get the money; it went to the bank," said Binegar, now a 19-year-old freshman at Ohio...

    He was a teenage heartthrob upon whom all the girls had crushes and all the boys wanted to be like. I should know, heck, I dressed like him and even had my hair styled like him. Now, some odd 25 years later, you could still do worse when picking a celebrity to pattern yourself after. Fame is a tough gig, it usually chews up and spits out its childhood stars, but every once in a while there is a surprise. During the 1980s there was no bigger child star than Kirk Cameron who played Mike Seaver on television’s Growing Pains....

Angeles Chanon admitted that her daughter, Sharon Chanon Velazquez, 16, had once been suspended from school for verbally abusing Phoebe - but blamed the bullied girl for starting it. "(Sharon) exchanged a couple of words with her," Chanon told the Boston Herald. "Phoebe was calling her names. They're teenagers. They call names."

    He’s a suspect in 1,000 burglaries and 17 cases of arson. He never repeats his clothes, prays hard and loves women. He’s escaped six times in two years. The police can’t arrest their violent, hard-living quarry. This reporter can’t even name him on the lam. Sharad Kumar — as we’ll call him — is 17, a self-confessed burglar since age 10. Since he’s not an adult, he can’t be charged. His previous escape was five days ago. “In six months we have apprehended him thrice,” said H.G.S. Dhaliwal, deputy commissioner of police (south). “The rest’s up to the juvenile justice...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. teen pregnancy rate rose in 2006 for the first time in more than a decade, reversing a long slide, a U.S. think tank reported on Tuesday.

Instead, she drove to a Lawrence hair salon, got her hair done and then called police to report her blue Acura had been vandalized.

    The study, conducted by Aletha Akers, M.D., M.P.H., assistant professor of gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and colleagues, further links girls at weight extremes with an increased risk for engaging in sexual risk-taking behaviors. "This study will contribute to sexual health education prevention efforts, which can be tailored to address how cultural norms regarding body size may influence adolescent sexual decision making. Knowing how a girl perceives her weight may be just as important as knowing her actual weight," noted Dr. Akers. Of the nearly 7,200 high school girls asked about their sexual...

    PORTLAND, Ore. — A cell phone text exchange between Portland Mayor Sam Adams and the young man who was briefly his lover predicts "we are both ruined" shortly after the affair became public early this year. In documents released by the Oregon attorney general’s office on Tuesday, a four-page redacted summary of e-mail exchanges between Adams and Beau Breedlove last January show mutual concern for the breaking scandal. In one exchange on Jan. 27, apparently from Breedlove to Adams, Breedlove writes: "Well, now we are both ruined. Disgraced and ashamed. I’m sorry Sam." He continues: "I’m the felon, the slutty...

I would like to suggest a one-year degree program. And I don’t mean an associate’s degree. Here are some hard facts most colleges will never tell you and most parents could not tolerate hearing. The general requirements of the first two years at most colleges are what high school should have been.

The homes in question sit side-by-side on North McClellan Street in the Kenton neighborhood and both are now in pre-foreclosure. KATU obtained a copy of two notices of default against the properties, showing the mayor has not paid a mortgage payment on either home for five months. With late fees, that adds up to over $10,000 in back payments. Adams said Tuesday his financial problems stemmed from the fact that he had to pay up front for legal bills...

    Teenagers who watch Sex in the City, Friends and other TV shows featuring sex scenes and discussions of sex are far more likely to get pregnant or get someone else pregnant than their peers, a new study has found. The study, which tracked more than 700 sexually active teenagers aged between 12 and 17 for three years, discovered that those who viewed the most sexual content were almost twice as likely to get pregnant or get their girlfriend pregnant as those who saw the least explicit TV. The study was lead by Anita Chandra, a behavioural scientist at RAND, an...

    EUSTIS, Fla. -- A man caught on camera shocking a 15-year-old boy with a taser, just for fun, was a Eustis police officer and he did it after a night of drinking with kids.

It turns out every police taser has a computer chip in it and that told Eustis' police chief when it was fired. It's absolutely shocking that a police officer would host a house party with kids as young as 15 and...

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A local teenage politician caused controversy on Thursday in the party that he just joined. On Tuesday, the 19-year-old easily won a seat on the Republican Executive Committee in Palm Beach County. On Thursday, the committee kicked him off based on his family's notorious racial hate past.

"But for sure we don't want him, and we're not going to...
