FaithBridge Foster Care, a Christ-centered foster care placement agency, invites the public to learn about the Hall County "foster care crisis" at one of three meetings this month at Concord Baptist Church in Clermont.

Foster care is a large problem, but the Christian community is even bigger. We want to engage members of the community in the foster care ministry and share its impact on families and children, said Bill R. Hancock, co-founder and CEO of FaithBridge.  Churches can partner with established agencies like FaithBridge and together, we can provide a safe, stable solution to the needs of hurting children and families.

CARROLL COUNTY -- Officials say 3-year-old stepsisters had to endure abuse and neglect from Larry Glenn and his girlfriend, LaQuanda Stegall. They have now both been charged with cruelty to children, and more charges could come.

"Everybody was shocked about it. Because we didn't think he would do anything like that," says Glenn's former co-worker, Evelyn Crapp. The investigation into the abuse began when Larry Glenn brought his 3-year-old daughter to Tanner Medical Center for treatment of a fever and a swollen arm. Nurses alerted authorities after they felt the girl was healing from past abuses.

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law a bill that will make California the first state to ban lead bullets for all types of hunting.

The Democratic governor says in a signing message Friday that lead ammunition poses a threat to wildlife. He says the bill protects hunters by allowing the ban to be lifted if the federal government ever prohibits non-lead ammo.

What would you do if you received a threatening letter from your child's school, demanding that you take your youngster to a medical doctor and dentist at the whims of the school administrators, or risk being reported to the child welfare authorities?

Parents in at least two states have gotten exactly such letters. Police State USA reports: Under the auspices of keeping children healthy, the government has usurped the role of "parent" away from actual parents. The state - not legal guardians - is determining when and how children should be subjected to outside business influences. The provisions establish that the state has taken the final say in parenting matters, undermining parents' natural role in the child's life as protector and final decision maker. The provision invades the privacy of the family by giving the government access to private medical results.

The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that jails are allowed to conduct invasive strip searches on new inmates without any suspicion, regardless of the offense(s) the individual alleged committed.

While tragic, this decision is hardly surprising given the fact that the United States has descended into a hellish police state where even children are targeted by police officers and almost anything you do can be considered an indicator of terrorism. This also perfectly exemplifies what I like to call the de facto dual justice system, wherein police are allowed to get away with murder and the brutal assault of elderly people with dementia, while average people are arrested and thrown in jail for failing to finish a siding project.

Alabama already has one of the loosest gun restrictions in the country, but lawmakers felt there was one area that Alabamans were still be oppressed: Kids couldn't legally carry around handguns.

To rectify this gap in the unstated "guns for everyone" mentality of Alabama's Republican-led legislature, lawmakers have proposed an amendment to the state's gun laws that would allow minors to acquire their very own pistols. At the moment, the law is on a bit more even keel, stipulating that "no person shall deliver a pistol to any person under the age of 18." Lawmakers want that changed to allow minors to have pistols, but only if they get the permission of a "parent, guardian, or spouse who is 18 or older.

The regulation, issued Wednesday, comes in response to concerns that current state requirements pose barriers to Native families seeking to adopt, particularly those in remote settings with limited access to state courts.
