A 14-year-old home schooler wants to play football for Walker Valley High this fall, and the Bradley County School Board is slated to rule on his request on Thursday.

All four of the secondary principals said they are against allowing the homeschoolers. Danny Coggin, Walker Valley principal, said he has 1,546 students and they are the most important to him. Todd Shoemaker, principal of Bradley Central, said of his 1,740 students the football players wear their letterman jackets with pride. "It's not just about Friday night," he said. The middle school principals agreed.

So the next time you are tempted to dismiss someone as a "conspiracy theorist", just remember that the one that is crazy might actually be you.

There is a growing community uproar against the mother of a 3-year-old Taft girl beaten to death last week, allegedly by the mother's boyfriend. But, the Sheriff's Department says Angela Hanna is not considered a suspect.

The story has generated a lot of feedback from the community. Of the 850 people who voted in a KGET poll Wednesday night, 98% said the mother should face criminal charges. Some viewers compared the case to a similar one in Delano. During a heated argument at a home on Oak Street in Taft, Eric Foster told detectives he let his girlfriend's daughter fall from his lap and slam her head on the coffee table. An autopsy found the left side of her skull was fractured and her brain was severely swollen.

An Inland Empire neighborhood is being inundated with mountain lion sightings. Some residents are at times, afraid to leave their homes with their pets. One homeowner says a big cat took off with one of his dogs.

Rancho Cucamonga resident Fred Gilley says one of his poodles was killed by a mountain lion last Friday night around 9 p.m. "We saw the footprint from over here in the corner where he jumped over the wall," said Gilley.

I'm going public today with a secret I've kept for a year-my husband and I are homeschooling our children. I never dreamed we would become homeschoolers. I wanted my kids integrated and socialized.

We can't afford private education. Even on a doctor's salary, private education has become unaffordable, especially for larger families. Which choice would you make: save for college, save for retirement, or pay private school tuition? Few families can afford for all three, and most can only afford one. As educational debts loom larger for each successive generation, this financial crunch will only get worse.

Two of the 11 adopted children removed from the home of Michael and Sheren Gravelle, who are on trial for child abuse, testified yesterday about their life in a house of punishment and humiliation.

A 14-year-old boy testified that he was forced to sleep in a bathtub for 81 days with two sheets and sometimes a blanket. He said he was forced to stay in the tub because of his bed-wetting problem.

As summer temperatures soar to excessive levels across the Southland, two tragic cases from the other side of the country serve as reminders to anyone who has child care responsibilities.

The details connected to the deaths of two babies over the holiday weekend -- in separate incidents but under similar circumstances and only a short drive from each other in Virginia and Maryland -- could hardly be more tragic: In both cases, police say, a relative forgot the babies in a car with outside temperatures hovering around 90 degrees. Unfortunately, such cases are not rare.

Two managers for the Department of Children and Families have been fired for failing to remove two young children placed with a couple in Plainfield - a husband convicted in the 1990s of raping a child, and a wife who was on the child-abuse registry.

Managers Leslie Roy and Linda Lukin, who worked in the Willimantic regional office, were fired Monday, according to records obtained Tuesday by The Courant. Discipline is pending against a third DCF employee in the Willimantic office, state sources said. Lawyers for Roy and Lukin said both women are appealing, and they described their clients as exemplary employees with more than 25 years of service.

Two supervisors in Jackson County's Department of Human Resources face disciplinary action for not completing paperwork. Budget and staff cuts have some DHR workers forced to choose between children's safety and paperwork.

The professionals who deal with DHR went to support the two supervisors at Tuesday's board meeting. Connie Cotton and Christy Crabtree have more than 20 years of service with the DHR in Jackson County. The two women face disciplinary measures, even termination, for failing to get paperwork done.
