  • Lacrosse Team Told to Remove ‘Pray for Peace’ Shirts; Too Religious & Political, Says School Board

    04/10/2022 4:05:49 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 42 replies ^ | April 10, 2022 | Todd Starnes
    “The Girls Lacrosse Team is no longer permitted to wear the Pray for Peace t-shirts at home or away events as warm up gear,” the email read. “The message conveyed by the shirts, although positive in nature and well meaning, can be interpreted as religious and political in nature.” The school district said the shirts were too religious and too political. A double-whammy. Parent Clare Levison said the girls offered to replace the word “pray” with the word “play.” However, that compromise was rejected. The Roanoke Times reported that the school’s librarian was ordered to remove a display sign that...

Benet administrators said Kammes accepted the job offer. The school allegedly rescinded Kammes’ job offer after she wrote her wife down as her emergency contact.The news comes...

    Image from La Crosse County website, cropped and scaled by Dean Weingarten U.S.A. –-( La Crosse County, Wisconsin may have engineered a new event, the cheap ammunition event.

    False accusers, administrators, prosecutors – no one learned from her lesson It appears to be the end of the road for Crystal Mangum. The accuser at the center of the Duke University lacrosse gang-rape hoax was denied another trial after her conviction for lethally stabbing her boyfriend five years ago. We last covered Mangum three years ago when she asked for a new trial, saying the jury was improperly informed of her attack on another man in 2010. Mangum claimed the butter-knife stabbing was an act of self-defense against a violent boyfriend, but the jury didn’t believe her and she...

    It never happens to those you know. It never happens in your area. It never happens … until it does. I've written for Florida Lacrosse News for about seven years, and it's almost always been about positive news. Of course, there's been the odd story about a program caught in an infraction and having to forfeit some games, or a coach or athletic director arrested for something, or even a star player going down injured. Nothing like this. I'm not an emotional person in general when it comes to tragedies. I turn 60 years old this year. I lost a...

    LA CROSSE, Wis. — Flooding, snowstorms, a flu outbreak, even a fire — any of those might have slowed a group of Wisconsin nuns who say none of it has kept their order from praying nonstop for hundreds of thousands of people over the last 137 years. The La Crosse-based Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration claim to have been praying night and day for the ill and the suffering longer than anyone in the United States — since 11 a.m. on Aug. 1, 1878.

    Duke is the most fundamentally racist and sexist university in America. If you don’t believe me just ask Paul Griffiths – an Oxford educated now-former Professor at Duke Divinity School (DDS). Just last semester, Griffiths, who is white, expressed opposition to a Racial Equity Institute “diversity” program that was being pushed by one of his so-called colleagues. Expressing his opposition to the program resulted in a charge of racial and sexual harassment by a white colleague named Thea Portier-Young. Rather than face a kangaroo court that refused to provide him documentation of relevant evidence in advance of his hearing, Griffiths...

    Quick (no web searching!), who was the 2016 NCAA Division I women's basketball champion? (Don't tell me that your office didn't do a women’s NCAA tournament bracket contest!) Okay, given that they've (UConn) won it four times in-a-row, that's too easy. Let's try again: Who was the last (2015) WNBA champion? (Hint: They've won it four of the last five seasons.) Don't feel bad, I didn’t know either, and twice in their recent five-year championship run they defeated the team from my home state in the championship series. Even better: Can you name five WNBA teams? How about five WNBA...

The white prosecutor overwhelmly won the black votes until the truth came out. The first five minutes of "Fantastic Lies" might make lacrosse fans cringe. White privileged athletes. Partyers. A de facto frat house. The labels thrown out, true or not, will likely lure a...

    A Confederate flag on University of Wisconsin-La Crosse grounds has stirred up debate between advocates of free speech and proponents of inclusivity after a campus official apologized for the “fear and angst” caused by the banner. The controversy arose after Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Paula Knudson received complaints, both in the form of phone calls and official “hate and bias” reports, about the flag’s presence on the grille cover of a semi-tractor parked on the student center construction site. “It was numerous. Calls started coming, people started coming in, and other offices started calling in,” Knudson said Wednesday. The...

Clarke said of the charges, “it’s a miscarriage of justice. This neophyte prosecutor stood up there and made a political statement, Neil, and I say that because she’s chanting or voicing some of the chants from this angry...

The town will pay Tim Kelemen, 37, for 335 accrued hours under an agreement negotiated by the chief’s lawyer and the town’s attorney and approved unanimously Thursday by the Campbell Town Board. “It’s not a good day for the town.
