It Should Be Easier This Summer For Teens To Make Some Dough

As a teenager I never had trouble finding a job. Whether it was working at a pool or the short stint sorting bullets and folding uniform shirts at a police officer outfitting store (true story), I could always find some sort of work. But times have changed. With the struggling economy of the past few years, it has been more and more difficult for today’s teenagers to scrounge up work. However it looks like this summer, things may be looking up. More »

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office is investigating a second rape case that allegedly took place in April of 2012, involving a 14-year-old girl in Steubenville. Now, I know the good residents of Steubenville have claimed that the other alleged gang rape case involving a 16-year-old victim is an isolated incident, and that the kids of Steubenville are good kids who don’t engage in underage drinking or sexual assault, but because of new information regarding this case, I think maybe the parents of Steubenville are pretty deluded when it comes to what their teenagers are doing.
