American Scene: Tests come back negative in search for Hoffa
Question of the Day
DETROIT — The latest search for former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa has come up empty.
“Our department just received the soil sample report from Michigan State University, after a battery of tests; the samples submitted for examination showed no signs of human decomposition,” the police statement read. “As a result of these tests the Roseville Police Department will be concluding their investigation into the possible interment of a human body upon the property.”
Girls in short dresses barred from school dance
TOOELE — A Utah public high school principal has apologized to dozens of teens who were turned away from their homecoming dance because their dresses were deemed too short, in what parents and students called a “homecoming spirit massacre.”
Stansbury High Principal Kendall Topham held four assemblies Monday to tell students that the school’s dress code policy was too vague to be properly enforced and vowing to hold a free dance to make up for Saturday’s dress debacle.
As many as half of those who arrived at the dance did not enter after their dates and friends were turned away.
The school’s handbook states that dress for formal events should be “at or near knee length,” leaving room for interpretation.
Christian group challenges ban on gay teen therapy
SAN FRANCISCO — A Christian legal group has filed a lawsuit to overturn a first-of-its-kind California law that prohibits licensed mental health professionals from practicing therapies aimed at making gay teenagers straight.
The Sacramento Pacific Legal Institute challenged the legislation signed Saturday by Gov. Jerry Brown.
The lawsuit was filed late Monday in U.S. District Court in Sacramento.
The institute filed the lawsuit on behalf of a psychiatrist and a marriage and family therapist who is also a church pastor in San Diego. It also names as a plaintiff Aaron Bitzer, a Culver City man who says he has benefited from the “reparative” therapy.
