    Beith to return to Indiana May 16, 2001 By Sharlonda L. Waterhouse / Post-Tribune staff writer William A. “Andy” Beith is leaving Las Vegas. After days of debate over where Beith should be tried first, law enforcement officials agreed Tuesday to send him first before a federal court in Indiana to face federal kidnapping and child sex charges. Beith, 29, former principal at Lake Station Liberty Baptist Academy, is accused of abducting an 11-year-old Gary girl, who was one of his students, from a Portage Wal-mart May 1. He was apprehended May 8 in Las Vegas by FBI and police, ...

    The birth rate collapse: The biggest challenge of the 21st century By Jim Sedlak Director Stop Planned Parenthood International We've been warning about it for years. American Life League's Bob Sassone produced a Handbook on Population that talked about the dire consequences of the actions of the population controllers around the world. Our friend, Steve Mosher at the Population Research Institute, has been aggressively fighting funding of these groups. Yet, nobody listened. Now the effects of half a century of population control activities are becoming apparent, and the news is not good. The effects have been documented, not by a ...

    Most European Women Use Contraceptives, Yet Some Still Have Surprise Pregnancies by Ralf E. Ulrich   (April 2001) Europe has the lowest fertility rates in the world. In 2000, the average for the region was 1.4 children per couple, and it ranged from 1.1 children in Bulgaria and the Czech Republic to 2.2 children in Albania. Social scientists posit a number of explanations for Europeans' apparent reluctance to have children. Many point to the rising costs of raising children — not just higher costs of living, but also the personal costs to parents of deferred professional advancement and individual fulfillment. ...

In the two weeks before Mother's Day, she has delivered two more. At a time when the nation's birth rate is dropping and American families are getting smaller, averaging 1.9 kids, ...

    Hey, drove past 14th & Pennsylvania today, hoping to catch a glimpse of the "Million Moms March" DC rally -- pathetic! Except for a couple of pink balloons, a banner and a DJ playing music, there WAS no rally. So I looped around the block and there, on the sidewalk, was about 20 FREEPERS! I blew my horn and yelled and they yelled back. Guys, now you know -- the guy in the battered blue Toyota was me! (My other car is ... a battered Ford van.) Anyway, by the time I could find a place to park, the counter-protest ...

    Teen shot by homeowner charged as burglar May 12, 2001 By Stan Maddux / Post-Tribune correspondent LAPORTE — A week after his Trail Creek home was burglarized, Mark Neitzel wasn’t about to be victimized again. When he saw three teen-agers hop a backyard fence and make their way toward his house, he grabbed his handgun. When one began crawling in through a back window, he warned him to get out. When the boy didn’t listen, Neitzel shot him in the leg. Friday, the 16-year-old was charged in juvenile court, along with two others police say were involved in the crime. ...

In addition, Carter says Joseph Marshall has made comments to ...

    Where Angels Fear to Tread: A Guy Marooned in Women's Studies by Eric Adler A bulletin board at the entrance to Duke University’s women’s studies program proclaims to passersby that 1,160 students registered for its courses in the fall 2000 semester alone. More than any other sign, this message speaks to – and was intended to speak to – the vitality of this discipline. Indeed, the bulletin board as a whole does not seem to offer information so much as declarations of victory; despite our detractors, it says, we are still here, and more vibrant than ever. Advocates of women’s ...

    AP National Nevada Wants to Try Ex-Principal by KEN RITTER Associated Press Writer LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A prosecutor said Nevada has the strongest case and should be the first to try a former Baptist school principal on charges he kidnapped and sexually assaulted an 11-year-old girl during a cross-country trip. The prosecutor spoke Thursday after a Las Vegas Justice Court hearing was postponed because of a question over jurisdiction in the case. ''In deference to the other states, we have the sex abuse charges,'' Deputy Clark County District Attorney Doug Herndon said. The girl disappeared May 1 in Portage, ...

Denise Johnson, deputy federal public defender assigned to Beith, would not say what was in the sealed indictments during the hearing. Beith, handcuffed and dressed in a jail-issued navy blue jumpsuit, consented to be transferred ...

A family’s week-long ordeal over their daughter’s cross-country disappearance ended in relief when officials found her in Las Vegas on Tuesday. But the journey through the federal legal system is just beginning for former Liberty Baptist Academy Principal William “Andy” Beith. The 28-year-old Burns Harbor man is slated to appear in federal court today at Las Vegas where he faces federal charges of coercing a minor to travel to engage in sexual acts and transporting a minor across state ...

    May 9, 2001 New psychiatric study says gays can alter orientation By Julia Duin THE WASHINGTON TIMES A groundbreaking new study asserting it is possible for homosexuals to become heterosexuals will be released today at the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) in New Orleans. The 40-page study, which will be debated during a three-hour symposium, is especially unusual because its author, New York psychiatry professor Dr. Robert Spitzer, championed a vote among APA members to normalize homosexuality nearly three decades ago. Thanks to efforts by the Columbia University physician, the APA in 1973 removed homosexuality from its ...

    One of the dirty tricks of liberals is to go onto Amazon.com and give very low ratings and negative reviews to conservative books, in an effort to try to discourage people from reading them.

    ISSUE 2172 Sunday 6 May 2001 Police intercept race march in Oldham AN overwhelming police presence has prevented violence by National Front marchers in Oldham, North Manchester, as racial tensions continue to rise in the former mill town.

Around thirty members of the National Front had travelled from Birmingham and the south in minibuses. Police in full riot gear enclosed the NF group on a garage forecourt where they chanted slogans.

Now the government is scrambling to come up with ways to counter the drop. The authors of an ambitious demographic policy expected to be adopted by the government this year hope to turn the situation around by giving couples incentives to have children and by improving the nation’s ...
