I will try to follow the case of Peggy Fugate in Hamilton County, Ohio. She had her parental rights to her daughter terminated seven years ago and is now petitioning to adopt the girl who was never adopted and remains in foster care.
When you type in the name of my county in a Google News search, you get mostly fishing reports. hmmmmm...

Do you know all the candidates for office where you live and vote? I don't. And I find it disturbing that our local newspaper is doing nothing to help out the average citizen.

But then again, the Cleveland Plain Dealer can't even decide who to endorse for President. The editorial staff reportedly wants to endorse Kerry and the publisher wants to endorse Bush. Who do you think will win?
So what do you do when you have no hope of winning an election in Cleveland? Why change your name to Russo and you're all set.

Talk about laughable political ploys.
If you have been following the case of Aiden Stein, then you know that his case goes before the Ohio Supreme Court for argument over whether an appointed guardian should have the authority to withdraw life support, which will most likely result in Aiden's death. While I appreciate the news attempts to follow this story, I think the quoting of a professor in Medicine Law is missing the mark just a bit. Why nothing from FAMILY LAW experts? This isn't merely a medical issue...but one of parental rights and responsibilities, juvenile rights, and potential criminal consequences.
