As air testing was being conducted Friday, employees from the state Department of Children & Families' West Silver Springs Boulevard office were packing boxes to leave forever the building they fear may be a "sick" building.

A number of employees have experienced headaches, difficulty breathing, eye irritation, light-headedness, sneezing, nausea, coughs and sore throats and are concerned that the building may be to blame for their symptoms.

Six employees have filed air quality complaints and three have filed workers' compensation complaints. One of the employees is a pregnant woman. Another was told by her doctor not to return to the building.

Eric Norman Olsen said he continued teaching in July -- despite being banned at the Ontario-Montclair, San Bernardino and Central school districts and under investigation for child molestation.

In an interview Wednesday, Olsen, 28, who is charged with three counts of molesting a 10-year-old girl at the Berlyn School in Ontario, said he subbed at the Corona-Norco Unified School District in July.

A judge ruled today a Virginia teen who has refused chemotherapy for his cancer does not have to report to a hospital as previously ordered by a court.

Sixteen-year-old Abraham Cherrix, who suffers from Hodgkin's disease, has been seeking an alternative treatment amid threats the government will take him away from his family. Accomack County Circuit Court Judge Glen A. Taylor set aside an order by a juvenile court requiring Abraham to report to a hospital today. The judge set a trial date of Aug. 16.

SEATTLE - A 922-page state report shows what police detectives say is a foster father's long history of abuse. Enrique Fabregas is now charged with raping and abusing one of his foster children.

The stack of paperwork makes up just two thirds of the state's file on Fabregas. The state withheld the other 506 pages, citing confidentiality laws. Still, the paperwork details years of complaints, concerns and warnings that the foster father was abusing and neglecting an adopted daughter and two foster daughters. Sue Lewis is a foster mother who alerted the state.

Parent Rights and the Foundation for Medical Neglect - When it comes to making decisions about their children, parents have few rights, as demonstrated by the Abraham Cherrix case and others.

The concept of the State control of children came from antiquity when Plato first suggested the mechanism for a state-provided public education. He advocated removing children from their parents' care and raising them as wards of the State. It is interesting that in 1918, at the congress of the Communist Party education workers in Russia it was asserted, "We must remove the children from the crude influence of their families."

After he had endured three months of ineffective treatments for Hodgkin's lymphoma, Abraham Cherrix rejected his doctor's recommendation to go through a second round of chemotherapy. He chose instead to seek out more natural, nontoxic methods using altern

After doing his research, he traveled with his father to Bio-Medical Center in Tijuana, Mexico. His treatments included liquid herbal supplements and a sugar-free, organic diet consisting mostly of fresh fruits and vegetables. When they returned home, they spoke to Abraham's oncologist, Dr. Rebecca Byrd, to keep her involved in his care. Wanting no part of their choices, she promptly declared their decision irrational, labeled it "medical neglect" and called the Accomack County Department of Social Services.

"To whom it may concern," she typed, "I am writing to you to appeal for the return of my children." Marie lost her kids, all of them boys, to the State of Connecticut more than a year ago.

The Stamford office of Connecticut's Department of Children and Families has placed the boys in an array of shelters and foster homes; it has recently found potential adoptive parents for four of them; and earlier this month it filed a petition to end Marie's role and rights as a mother. If the department, known as D.C.F., succeeds in court, she will lose her children forever.

States are increasingly focusing on moving children from foster care into homes with grandparents or other relatives.

PHILADELPHIA - Kali Ward is just glad she can finally go to slumber parties. Now that she is out of foster care, the sociable 17-year-old no longer has to get a criminal background check on her friends' parents if she wants to sleep over. "People make plans same day," said Kali, a cordless phone in one hand, an afternoon waffle in the other. "Background checks take weeks."

WICHITA, Kan. - Police found two young girls in a basement Friday who were so emaciated that an officer compared them to Nazi death camp survivors. Their two stepsiblings were upstairs with their mother, healthy and well fed.

Acting on a tip, state social workers stopped by the south Wichita house Friday to check on the welfare of the children. They then notified the police. "It's the worst case of malnutrition I've ever seen," Lt. E.J. Bastian said. The 6- and 7-year-old girls kept in the basement told police they ate whenever their dad was home. But that wasn't very often.

A judge ruled Friday that a 16-year-old boy fighting to use alternative treatment for his cancer must report to a hospital by Tuesday and accept treatment that doctors deem necessary, the family's attorney said.

Stepanovich said he will ask a higher court on Monday to stay enforcement of the order, which requires the parents to take Abraham to Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters in Norfolk and to give the oncologist their written legal consent to treat their son for Hodgkin's disease. The lawyer declined to release the ruling, saying juvenile court Judge Jesse E. Demps has sealed much of the case.
