Pressly stressed that this includes young mothers with children, teens escaping alcoholic parents, children whose parents have lost their income, and children of stranded strangers.

There was a story on NPR yesterday about rampant sexual abuse in isolated compounds, perpetrated by religious leaders.

Although there were relatively few offenders, the number of victims is staggering. The "compounds" are Native Alaskan villages. The abusers were priests and lay volunteers supervised by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fairbanks in the 1960s.

The longtime director of the Foster Care Review Board was ousted today by her board of directors, who voted unanimously to terminate her after 29 sometimes tumultuous years at the helm.

It was unclear exactly why the board terminated Carol Stitt - who was hailed by both the board and her supporters as one of the fiercest advocates for foster kids in Nebraska. After the meeting, some of Stitt's supporters were in tears and others just furious. Lynn Rex, executive director of the League of Nebraska Municipalities, said it was disgraceful that Stitt was not allowed to continue "important work."

Armed with cellphones and connected through Facebook, bands of young people have been rushing into stores to steal goods or assaulting bystanders in a spate of recent "flash mob" incidents across the USA.

Philadelphia leaders imposed an early curfew on parts of the city this month after roving bands of teens beat and robbed bystanders during violent attacks across the city. This week, surveillance cameras caught several dozen youths swarming into convenience stores in Germantown, Md., and Washington, D.C., and stealing armfuls of snacks and drinks as the store clerk looked on helplessly.

Environment Secretary Owen Paterson rounded on critics of GM technology as 'humbugs' last week, and insisted GM food should be grown and sold widely in Britain.

During the course of his ringing endorsement, he managed to spark outrage and alarm by claiming 'there isn't a single piece of meat being served [in a typical London restaurant] where a bullock hasn't eaten some GM feed'. His belligerent intent was quite clear. The message he wanted to get across was that GM crops are already here and in the food chain, there's nothing to fear - and nothing we can do about it.

A collection of 'gay' organizations has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in a Massachusetts lawsuit, claiming they have every right to teach their doctrine to grade-school students.

Parental rights, according to the brief filed this week, "have never meant that a parent can demand prior notice and the right to opt a child out of mere exposure to ideas in the public schools that a parent disapproves of."

A family rights group is planning protests on Friday (August 12, 2011) against the child welfare system at courthouses across the nation, including Spokane.

The protests, planned in 42 states and Washington, D.C., are being organized by an Internet-based movement known as Govabuse and will target family courts, child protective services and foster care systems that it says "separate and financially demolish families," according to the organization's website, govabuse.org.

Sent from the "Grandma Underground," the personal stories included pleas for help from grandparents and other relatives struggling to raise children removed from homes because of abuse, often from parents caught up in the state's drug epidemic.

"She was born a drug baby and has a lot of medical problems and suffers many withdrawal attacks," wrote Teresa Grider, a grandmother from Elizabethtown, describing the youngest of five grandchildren she's raising. "If you was ever to see one, it would make tears come to your eyes as it does me."
