    Five dozen women who went to high school with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have written a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein backing his character. "We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983. For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect. We strongly believe it is important to convey this information to the Committee at this time," the letter states. "Brett attended Georgetown Prep, an...

    A woman from Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh's teenage past claims he and a high school classmate once held her down in a locked room while he covered her mouth and tried to force himself on her sexually. The bombshell charge, which Kavanaugh flatly denied on Friday, followed 24 hours of speculation about what Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein vaguely called 'information' that she had handed to the FBI. The alleged teenage party incident was described in a letter from the unnamed woman to Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo, her California congresswoman. Eshoo passed it to Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the...

    Transgender adolescents are far more likely to attempt suicide than teens whose identity matches their sex assigned at birth, and trans male youth are especially at risk, a U.S. study suggests. Roughly half of transgender teens who identify as male but were assigned a female gender at birth have attempted suicide at least once, the study found. And 42 percent of adolescents who don’t identify exclusively as male or female have at least one prior suicide attempt. About 30 percent of trans female teens - who identify as female but have birth certificates that label them as male - have...

    A new pro-abortion campaign aims to convince teens that aborting an unborn baby is no big deal. Organized by Advocates for Youth and the National Network of Abortion Funds, Youth Testify is a national campaign that encourages young people who have had abortions to share their stories, according to Teen Vogue. The campaign claims it wants to change the narrative and combat misinformation about abortions among teens and young adults, but it really only wants abortion-positive stories from teens. Young adults who regret aborting their unborn babies or had terrible experiences are not welcome to participate. The campaign currently has...

    Facebook AUBURN, Wash. - A gas station store clerk collapses, but instead of helping him, police say two teens helped themselves by stealing from the store. Police now want to find the young thieves who left that clerk for dead. It disgusts store manager Angela Sharapova to watch the surveillance footage of the confrontation inside her store Saturday night that ended with her employee in the hospital. "We can't believe that this happened," Sharapova told KOMO.

    The summer's explosive dance challenge has recently taken a dangerous turn. It's the "In My Feelings" challenge — also known as the "Kiki" challenge — and one Iowa teen found herself in the hospital after attempting it. The original "In My Feelings" challenge started innocently enough, with people filming themselves dancing to Drake's new song, "In My Feelings." But since the trend took off about a month ago, it's escalated to a new, dangerous level, with some people recording themselves jumping out of moving cars to dance. Police and safety officials in communities around the world have issued warnings urging...

    Investigators are reviewing surveillance video along North Broad Street after a group of about 300 teenagers crowded the area Sunday night. It’s not clear why the large group descended onto Broad Street at around 7:30 p.m. Police are looking to identify a small fraction of the kids; those who were fighting and damaging property inside a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant near the Liacouras Center and one other business, flipping over tables and chairs. […] Police are reviewing social media to determine if this was a planned meet-up. Police Commissioner Richard Ross says often times investigators can stop social media meet-ups before...

    An Oregon high school student who was suspended over a shirt that touted President Trump’s proposed border wall has agreed to settle his lawsuit after the school agreed to pay $25,000 for his legal fees and have its principal write him an apology. Addison Barnes, who graduated this year from Liberty High School in Hillsboro, Ore., outside Portland, filed a lawsuit in federal court in May alleging that the school violated his First Amendment rights when it punished him for wearing the shirt to a politics class discussion about immigration. The shirt said “Donald J. Trump Border Wall Construction Co.,”...

    Melania Trump spent part of Thursday listening to more than a dozen teenagers talk about their best practices to be civil online, while her husband was doing the opposite. The first lady made a brief trip to the Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center in Washington as part of a national child welfare campaign launched this year called "Be Best", which includes teaching children and young people to be good citizens online. Digital courtesy is one of the elements of the first lady's "Be the best" campaign, although her husband is regularly criticized for his own online practices and has turned...

    A few months back, I experienced what a friend of mine and many libertarians and conservative parents say they have experienced: My teenagers started spouting leftist platitudes. Being combative and sarcastic by nature (since all Cubans are born with a sharp tongue), we all ended up angry and frustrated. Upon subsequent calm reflection, I realized I had accomplished nothing. And so I tried another approach. To my complete surprise, there was a 180-degree turnaround in the teens’ views. I would now like to share the tactics I used and give the following advice to those who are at wit’s end.

    As scores of young people crowded into a hearing room in the Wilson Building on Wednesday, D.C. Council members saw the future of D.C. politics. “There are multiple future council members and a future mayor in this room,” said D.C. Council member Charles Allen (D-Ward 6). But before they run for office, Allen wants to make them voters. A bill he introduced in April would do just that, lowering the voting age to 16. If passed, the bill would enfranchise up to 10,600 16- and 17-year-olds, according to Census Bureau data. It would also be historic. The nation’s capital would...

In the call, the caller told dispatchers that a man, who appeared to be in his 20s, had knocked on the door of the apartment where he was staying and said his friend was drowning at the pool.

    The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a lower court’s decision that allowed an undocumented immigrant teenager to obtain an abortion over the protests of the Trump administration. The action, which came in an unsigned opinion without noted dissents, throws out a precedent that might allow other teenagers in the same circumstance to obtain an abortion.

    EAST HANOVER, N.J. – Everybody makes the team. A New Jersey high school drew heat from students and parents for a new policy that says everyone makes the cheerleading squad or no one does. According to WCBS, the change came after a mother complained that her child didn’t make the cut. To make the cheerleading squad at Hanover Park High School, prospective members go through a tryout in which coaches score them on things like jumps and choreography before making their final picks for the team. But after the mother whose daughter didn’t make the squad complained after last month’s...
