The controversy started about a month ago when the Chatter Box wanted to print articles dealing with sexually transmitted diseases, teen pregnancy, and interracial dating.
Some of the articles contained real names.

[OUT Q=I am proud of it]


The school board asked that real names not be used because of worries the district could be held liable.
Board members also wanted to print a letter in the magazine saying they have the power to censor the newspaper but weren't going to do that in this case.
[SOT 16:48:06]

The school board argues it can censor the paper since the Chatterbox is part of the curriculum.
The Supreme Court does give school districts powers to censor under certain conditions.

After more than an hour of debate, the school board agreed to allow the paper to go to print on Friday as long as their letter is printed.
The students must now decide whether to comply or continue to fight.

BOTTLED OR TAP. WHICH TYPE OF WATER IS BEST FOR YOU?. THE ANSWER- IT PROBABLY DOESNT MATTER.
A REPORT FROM THE WORLD WILDLIFE FUND SAYS DESPITE CLAIMS BOTTLED WATER IS MORE NATURAL AND MORE HEALTHY- TAP WATER IS JUST AS GOOD-- AND MAYBE-IN SOME CASES- EVEN BETTER.
SALES OF BOTTLED WATER ARE WAY UP - MAINLY BECAUSE OF PEOPLE'S FEARS ABOUT POLLUTION IN THE NATION'S WATER SUPPLIES .HOWEVER - SEVERAL STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THIS IS NOT THE CASE... IN FACT- IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN AND GO WITH BOTTLED WATER- YOU MAY BE HURTING THEIR TEETH- SINCE BOTTLED WATER USUALLY DOESN'T CONTAIN CAVITY FIGHTING FLOURIDE.

MORE AND MORE CHILDREN WITH ASTHMA ARE RUNNING INTO TROUBLE- ONE REASON- THEIR PARENTS ARE NOT GIVING THEIR KIDS INHALERS THAT CONTAIN STEROIDS. AND ITS THAT WORD STEROID THATS THE PROBLEM- YOU THINK BAD STEROIDS USED BY BODYBUILDERS.
BUT PARENTS NEED TO UNDERSTAND- THAT THE STEROIDS IN AN INHALER ARE MUCH DIFFERENT THAN STEROIDS USED BY BODYBUILDERS.... AND WHEN USED PROPERLY- INHALED STEROIDS FOR ASTHMA ARE VERY SAFE.

FINALLY TODAY- IF YOU HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH MISCARRIAGES- OR YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO HAS- ONE AREA TO EXPLORE IS THAT OF TOO LITTLE VITAMIN B12. A NEW STUDY IN THE JOURNAL OF REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE FINDS A SUPRISING NUMBER OF WOMEN WITH REPEATED MISCARRAIGES ARE TOO LOW IN B12...
