School tells boys they can wear skirts in the summer but not shorts

Wymondham High Academy in Norfolk has annoyed some parents with its rule change (Picture: East Anglia News Service)Parents have been left baffled after a secondary school’s new uniform policy introduced a rule allowing boys to wear skirts – but retained a ban on them wearing shorts. Wymondham High Academy in Norfolk introduced a new ‘gender neutral’ uniform policy after male pupils complained about being uncomfortable in trousers during the summer months. Jonathan Rockey, the headteacher of the 1,705-pupil school, defended the change as ‘something we are very proud of’ and said parents had been consulted. But one called the decision to relax enforce restrictions on shorts even when temperatures pass 30 degrees Celsius as ‘insane’. They added: ‘The school appears to be deaf to...

Oxford shooting suspect could be witness in parents’ trial

Lawyers representing the parents of a Michigan teenager charged in a shooting at Oxford High School that left four of his fellow students dead said Monday that they plan to call him to testify at the couple's trial. Defense attorney Shannon Smith told Oakland County Circuit Judge Cheryl Matthews that Ethan Crumbley's testimony would be related to “extraneous matters” and not the Nov. 30 shooting. “We need him as a witness in this trial," said Smith, who represents Jennifer Crumbley. “There are just certain questions we would just not be able to ask. We do understand that." The disclosure came during court hearing in Pontiac, where Matthews ruled against the defense's motion for a change of venue for James and Jennifer Crumbley's involuntary manslaughter trial, which is tentatively schedul...

Artur Widak/NurPhoto via GettyA California man sexually assaulted a young girl while her mother sat nearby during an overnight flight from Los Angeles to Orlando, then groped a woman who came to the child’s aid, prosecutors say—but the 51-year-old suspect claims the Ambien made him do it. Brian Patrick Durning was arrested Friday by federal agents who met Delta Air Lines flight 2954 at Orlando International Airport after it landed at 7:32 a.m., according to a criminal complaint first obtained by The Daily Beast. Durning, who lives in the L.A. suburb of Altadena, was in an aisle seat directly next to the alleged victim, who is described in court filings as older than 12 but younger than 16.

Health officials warn of algae bloom in Clay County

The Florida Department of Health is advising Clay County residents to be cautious around waterways because of harmful blue-green algae toxins found in the freshwater. The FDH said the alert is in response to a water sample taken on June 23. Blue-green algae are considered harmful because they can impact human health and ecosystems, including fish and other aquatic animals. The FDH said blue-green algae are common in Florida’s freshwater environments, especially in the summer and fall because of warmer temperatures, still water conditions and excess nutrients. Usually, a bloom occurs when the rapid growth of algae leads to an accumulation of individual cells that discolor water and often produce floating mats that emit unpleasant odors. Residents and visitors are advised to take the follow...

‘Elvis’ is king, alone, of box office after final tallies

“Elvis” has won its box-office dance-off with “Top Gun: Maverick.” After the two films reported the same ticket sales Sunday, Monday's final numbers has “Elvis,” alone, as king of the weekend. “Elvis” ultimately grossed $31.1 million from Friday to Sunday, according to Warner Bros.' final figures Monday.

Pittsburg QB Rashada commits to Miami, reportedly lands massive NIL deal

Jaden Rashada is taking his talents to South Beach. Or at least pretty close. The four-star Pittsburg HS quarterback committed this weekend to play for the Hurricanes and former Oregon coach Mario Cristobal after his upcoming senior year. Rashada is listed as ESPN’s top dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2023 and the No. 5 quarterback overall. He was 146 of 256 for 2,220 yards, 27 touchdowns and just five interceptions last year. Rashada’s Pirates reached the NorCal 1-A regional last season, where they lost to Liberty-Bakersfield. “Playing for a proven head coach in coach Cristobal, who has proven himself as a winner, playing for an offensive coordinator in Josh Gattis (formerly of Michigan), who has proven himself a winner, being in that system, that was appealing to me,” Rashada to...

Supreme Court further erodes separation between church and state in case of praying football coach

The Supreme Court said Monday that a Washington state school district violated the First Amendment rights of a high school football coach when he lost his job after praying at the 50-yard line after games. The opinion was 6-3 along conservative-liberal ideological lines. “The Constitution and the best of our traditions counsel mutual respect and tolerance, not censorship and suppression, for religious and nonreligious views alike,” Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in the majority opinion. The court said coach Joe Kennedy’s prayers amounted to private speech, protected by the First Amendment, and could not be restricted by the school district. The decision lowers the bar between church and state in an opinion that will allow more religious expression in public spaces. The court clarified that a g
