    A Lexington woman is sentenced to 20 years in prison after a 15-year-old boy dies of alcohol poisoning at a party at her home. 15-year-old Nicholas Faught died at the party allegedly hosted by Tonya Moss and Justin Moore in March of 2015. At the sentencing, the victim's mother gave her testimony, the whole time choking back tears and looking straight at Moss saying she will never understand what her family is going through. The defendant also gave her testimony, claiming she did not know about the party and thought her son was only having a bonfire with a few...

    Call Dean Wormer: Graduation party at restaurant owned by 'Animal House' actor gets out of hand... Mequon - When the party animals at Delta house were facing the wrath of the Faber College dean and campus ROTC commander Doug Neidermeyer, they decided on a now-classic response: "Toga party." Twenty-eight years later, a group of high school students decided the best way to celebrate graduation would be in togas - with a party at Libby Montana restaurant in Mequon. It seems the party planners chose Libby Montana because the actor who played Neidermeyer in the movie "Animal House" - Mark Metcalf...

    The percentage of teenage girls who drink alcoholic beverages is rising faster than that of boys, and on average the girls take their first drink at age 13, the American Medical Association said Thursday in reporting the findings of two surveys. The AMA contends that a class of beverages informally known as "alcopops" is partly to blame, and it is warning doctors to educate teenagers about the dangers of such sweet drinks. The polls indicate that teenage girls are most vulnerable to the marketing of the beverages, which contain 5 to 7 percent alcohol and have names like Rick's Spiked...

Hanson and Matt Walcoff In July 2001 the U.S. Department of Justice announced an alleged breakthrough in research on alcohol policy.

Backers of the current U.S. drinking age -- 21, the world’s highest -- have adopted the DOJ’s finding as if it were handed down from Mount Sinai. They refer...
