Families try to prevent boys playing girls' sports

http://www.post-gazette.com

A mother and her daughter seek to reverse legislation from 1979 and ban boys from playing on female competitive sports teams. The daughter suffered a concussion after colliding with a boy during a field hockey game. Though I can see why the mother would be concerned, I am unable to support new legislation that would allow a girl to play on a high school football team but not allow a boy to play on high school field hockey team.

Bondage club can use school logo, but legalization group can't

http://www.desmoinesregister.com

University administrators met Thursday with NORML ISU, the campus chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, about the use of the school’s mascot on their club shirts. The T-shirts say NORML ISU on the front, with Cy’s head in place of the “O.” On the back is the slogan “Freedom is Norml at ISU” and a marijuana leaf. Now, Montgomery said, the group feels unfairly targeted, because other clubs on campus can still use Cy, with university approval.

Terri Ivester says, “The TSA agent holds my backpack up, and um, says there’s a water bottle in this backpack, I’m going to have to take that.”

That’s when Ivester says the agent left the area with her bag.

George Nacara, who is head of the TSA at Logan, tells the I-Team that passengers have the right to stay with their bags.

Ivester says she continued through the security checkpoint and she never gave it another thought until she got dressed for the christening.

“I’m ready to put on my jewelry and I can’t find it,” she says.
