The former Chillicothe High School principal is facing several felony charges after being accused of having sex with two underage students, reports say. Jeffrey R. Fisher has been indicted on seven counts of sexual battery, all third-degree felonies, according to the Chillicothe Gazette. If found guilty, Fisher could be sentenced to 12 to 60 months in prison on each count, WCMH Channel 4 reports. Investigators say Fisher had sex with two female students, ages 16 and 17, who have since graduated. The investigation began in August and Fisher had been working at home since that time, the Gazette reports. Fisher has been suspended following
G-d bless the few good teachers out there. It seems like for the last decade, teachers-men and women alike, are having their way with a lot of students. No boundaries, no morals should equal no job. Schools are not nightclubs where you pick up underage dates.
I´m going to reserve judgement on this one. Kids lie. They lie a lot and without any thought about the harm their lies might cause. Many are complete sociopaths. For me to believe anything important from a kid, I would want corroborating evidence from a credible (non teenage) source.
I have no experience with big city schools, but I can speak for the small town schools of my youth and of my husband´s young days. Each of us knew of some teacher/student relationships. This was sixty years ago! At my school, the chemistry teacher eloped with a 17 year old senior girl. At my husband´s school, two different male football coaches had relationships with at least two high school girls. We all knew about it. It´s much better now to see such predators prosecuted.
All three of my Nephew´s boys were molested in grade school- all by the same teacher- a male. My Nice´s little boy was molested and terribly abused by a State sponsored foster parent. In my high school (back in the enlightened age), one girls became pregnant by a math teacher, and another married her English teacher right after graduation and 7 months later delivered a full term baby girl. That was back in 1965. This kind of stuff goes on all the time. Kids are so vulnerable. And today, with magazines like "Teen vogue" publishing articles like "Safe Anal Sex for Girls"- what the hell do we expect? I think we are on a road that is headed straight to a very dark future.
Federal prosecutors have long insisted the goal of a fraud scheme at Pilot Flying J was to boost the truck stop giant’s profit and market share, and this week they served up numbers to try to prove it. Jurors in U.S. District Court in Chattanooga this week heard testimony and saw financial records showing that Pilot Flying J’s margin on diesel fuel sales, the number of truck stops it controlled and the amount of diesel fuel it sold all grew substantially during the time of the fraud at issue in the ongoing trial of the firm’s former president and three subordinates. Former
It would rank as one of the greatest political upsets of 2018 and a stunning rebuke to Trumpism: a gay Latina Democrat grabbing hold of the country’s biggest red state. But is Texas ready for Lupe Valdez? The question was first posed in Dallas in 2004, when Valdez scored a surprise victory to become the nation’s first openly gay female Hispanic sheriff on the same night that George W Bush secured a second term in the White House. She won re-election three times in Dallas county before announcing last month that she would resign to stand for Texas governor. Born in San Antonio,
Fox News is the last place you’d expect to see evidence of the growing push for antitrust enforcement. And yet Tucker Carlson this week devoted segments on two of his shows to arguing that Google has surpassed the federal government as the biggest threat to American liberty. In a spirited debate with Senator Mike Lee of Utah (who sits on the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights), Carlson called for a return to trust-busting: “Here’s the bottom line from my perspective: No company has ever been as powerful in the history of the world as Google
Fifty years ago — really, has it been that long? — Cardinals Hall of Fame righthander Bob Gibson sashayed through the National League with a 22-9 record, 13 shutouts, 28 complete games, 268 strikeouts and a mind-numbing 1.12 earned-run average, best in the modern era. But it wasn’t that easy. “There was pressure all year,” said Gibson, who especially will be honored Sunday night among other Cardinals greats of the past 60 years at the annual St. Louis Baseball Writers’ dinner at Union Station Hotel. “I have them right now, but I think I developed ulcers then. I had a lot of
The Washington Post has placed national reporter Janell Ross on leave after she was exposed giving a strategy briefing at a secret strategy conference for left-wing donors, politicians and activists in November, according to a new report. Ross was a featured speaker a conference funded by Democracy Alliance, a network of left-wing donors aligned with billionaire financier George Soros. Ross’s role at the conference, which was closed to reporters, was only revealed when the Washington Free Beacon obtained a copy of the conference agenda. She did not notify her employers before speaking at the left-wing summit, where she briefed attendees on
Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) has decided against challenging North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp this November, rejecting pleas from President Donald Trump and leaving the GOP without a top-tier candidate against Heitkamp — a first-term Democratic senator seeking reelection in a state Trump won by 36 points in 2016. Cramer made the announcement Thursday on "What´s On Your Mind?" — a radio program syndicated statewide in North Dakota, saying he needed to spend time with his 10-year-old son.
Gone are the days of a slouched, conciliatory, giggling and limp-wristed Barack Obama who for eight years preened and pranced his way into what was the warm embrace of the Davos elites. Mr. Obama was a thing of their own making, a caricature born deep within the disease-riddled bowels of anti-Americanism that run rampant throughout universities, Hollywood, and institutions like the United Nations. Their collective imaginings inseminated a concept and after a gestation of decades, shat Obama out. They marveled at how you really can polish a t##d and sell ice to Eskimos. As Joe Biden once said, “He’s bright
Steering his white Dodge Ram while wearing a tan knit cap, a drab green Carhartt coat and a smear of brown livestock feed on his cheek, Terry Goodin jounced over frozen-hard mud toward his 100 head of beef cattle. “Make sure they’re all four legs down and not four legs up, in this kind of weather,” he told me in his southern Indiana drawl. The temperature overnight had dipped toward zero. Now, midmorning, it stood at 16 degrees. On the rear of his old pickup truck was a “Farmers For Goodin” bumper sticker, and rattling around his head were thoughts
California Governor Jerry Brown said legal rulings may clear the way for making cuts to public pension benefits, which would go against long-standing assumptions and potentially provide financial relief to the state and its local governments. Brown said he has a "hunch" the courts would "modify" the so-called California rule, which holds that benefits promised to public employees can’t be rolled back. The state’s Supreme Court is set to hear a case in which lower courts ruled that reductions to pensions are permissible if the payments remain “reasonable” for workers. "There is more flexibility than there is currently assumed by those who
Conservative political strategist Karl Rove has used a provocative phrase to explain how Mitt Romney lost the presidential election Tuesday, saying President Obama won reelection “by suppressing the vote.” Really? Few others make that assertion about the Obama victory. And normally, the words voter suppression refer to efforts by the politically powerful to make it harder for people – especially people who might oppose the politically powerful at the polls – to cast ballots. The online reference Wikipedia defines it as tactics that "can range from minor ‘dirty tricks’ that make voting inconvenient, up to blatantly illegal activities that physically intimidate prospective
An educational “slush fund” used by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has come under the “strictest review” by acting director Mick Mulvaney amid concerns the Obama-era agency has been doling out cash only to Democratic cronies. Mulvaney, President Trump’s budget chief who has been temporarily installed at the agency the president once promised to kill, is reviewing all spending by the troubled consumer watchdog created to protect Americans from big financial companies.
A battle is brewing in Congress over whether to put pork back on the legislative menu. This isn’t about bacon, but so-called “earmarks,” the specially-tagged funding provisions tucked into spending bills by members of Congress to channel federal money to favored home-state projects. Critics say the funding provisions foster profligate spending and corruption — with millions of dollars doled out to lawmakers with the most political muscle, rather than to the projects with the most merit. House Republicans banned the provisions in 2011 after an earmark-related corruption scandal sent a former lawmaker and lobbyist to prison. But supporters want to overturn the ban;
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Friday she will not attend President Trump’s first State of the Union address following his vulgar remarks aimed at Haiti, El Salvador and African nations. “Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.” “Someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in?" (Snip) Waters is the third Democratic lawmaker to announce they won’t attend Trump’s address, which
Chelsea Manning, the former US army soldier jailed for giving sensitive documents to WikiLeaks, has filed documents to run for the US Senate, the Washington Post reported. Ms Manning, a former intelligence expert previously known as Bradley Manning, was released from military prison in 2017 after Barack Obama waived her sentence. The 30-year-old would be taking on the incumbent Ben Cardin, a 74-year-old Democrat who has held the seat for more than a decade.Miss Manning was arrested in May 2010, while serving with the US army in Iraq, after she confessed to a computer hacker, Adrian Lamo, that she was
Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump´s former top strategist, alleged in journalist Michael Wolff´s tell-all book about the Trump White House that the president´s longtime attorney, Marc Kasowitz, "took care" of 100 women during the presidential campaign. "Look, Kasowitz has known [Trump] for twenty-five years. Kasowitz has gotten him out of all kinds of jams," Bannon reportedly said. "Kasowitz on the campaign — what did we have, a hundred women? Kasowitz took care of all of them."
With his newly minted title as the world’s richest person, Amazon’s (AMZN) Jeff Bezos announced on Friday that he is donating a piece of his $108 billion fortune to fund 1,000 college scholarships for “Dreamers.” TheDream.US, the nation’s largest scholarship program for Dreamers, said Bezos donated $33 million in a scholarship grant—one of largest grants in the organization’s history—to give 1,000 undocumented immigrant high school graduates who are part of the Deferred Action for Children Arrivals (DACA) program the opportunity to go to college. “My dad came to the U.S. when he was 16 as part of Operation Pedro Pan,” Bezos
Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh dismissed the reaction to the remarks reportedly made by President Donald Trump deeming some nations to be “shithole countries” during a meeting with a bipartisan group of congressional leaders on immigration policy.Limbaugh called it “faux rage” and said much of it was an act for the cameras and microphone. “All I can tell you is I have been there,” Limbaugh said. “I have been in the midst of these kinds of firestorms, folks. And I can tell you this is all faux rage. It is faux anger. It is
Former Vice President Joe Biden condemned President Donald Trump for using derogatory language to describe African nations, saying that America should expect better from their president and that “we are better than this.” “It’s not how a president should speak. It’s not how a president should behave. Most of all, it’s not what a president should believe. We’re better than this.” Biden tweeted Friday. It’s not how a president should speak.

Former President Barack Obama said during a just-released interview that people who watch Fox News are living on a "different planet" than those who listen to National Public Radio (NPR). Obama joined David Letterman in the first episode of the former late-night host´s new Netflix show "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction." In the interview, which was released Friday but recorded in the fall, Obama talked about his personal life as well recent political and social issues.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump´s White House physician declared him in "excellent health" after the president received his first medical checkup at Walter Reed military hospital on Friday, undergoing a physical examination amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he´s mentally unfit. Dr. Ronny Jackson, in a statement released by the White House, said the examination "went exceptionally well. The President is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday." Trump spent about three hours at the medical facility in Bethesda, Maryland, outside Washington, for the Friday afternoon checkup,
A lawyer for President Trump reportedly arranged a $130,000 payment to a former porn star just weeks before the 2016 presidential election to stay quiet about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump. People familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal that Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen arranged a payment to Stephanie Clifford in October 2016 during negotiations of a nondisclosure agreement. Clifford, 38, has told people privately that she had a sexual encounter with Trump after they met in July 2006 in Lake Tahoe. Trump married his wife, Melania, in 2005. Trump denied all allegations of
President Donald Trump denied making a widely condemned comment railing against accepting immigrants from ´s***hole countries,´ even as he admitted to using ´tough´ language in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers. ´The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,´ Trump wrote, using unusually passive language in an effort to walk back the comment. ´What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!´ Trump tweeted Friday. The tweet came hours after a bombshell report about Trump´s comments, which the White House did not immediately deny. Trump made a public
As TGP’s Kristinn Taylor reported, the government of Hawaii scared the populace with a text message to cellphone users alerting them to an incoming ballistic missile.
