KINGSTON, Tenn. -- The family of a 16-year-old Tennessee high school student has filed a lawsuit against Roane County Schools and the contractor who employed a female janitor accused of raping the boy during school hours. Citing the lawsuit filed Monday, the Knoxville News-Sentinel reports that the Midway High School student's family is seeking $4.5 million in damages from the school district and Compass One Services of Tennessee for negligence in allowing the rape to occur. Twenty-nine-year-old Jessica E. Galyon was arrested in February on multiple charges related to the assault. Authorities said at the time that high school officials received reports in October 2016 of Galyon exchanging sexual

Dear Amy: My single sister will be 85 this year. I'm 78. We have always had a close relationship. She has no last will or trust, and will leave a reasonably large estate to me, assuming that I outlive her. Her health is not good. I have adult children I would prefer that she leave her estate to. I have not had success in convincing her to get her affairs in order. She doesn't like to take even a suggestion of it from me and hasn't thus far acted on my kids' requests to do so.

I can't understand her reluctance in this and wonder if she is acting out of

On April 20, the Drug Enforcement Administration tweeted out a link with a simple imperative: Find out where kids hide drugs. The link takes you to a page entitled "Hiding Places" at getsmartaboutdrugs.gov, "a DEA resource for parents, educators and caregivers."

Aaron Hernandez’s fiancée has an offer on his former home in North Attleboro, Mass., and a court gave her the right to close the deal as soon as possible after she and her attorney filed an affadavit Wednesday. There have been questions surrounding the estate of the former New England Patriots tight end, who recently committed suicide in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center where he was serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd, and according to court records obtained by the Boston Herald, his estate is down to zero. Because of this, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez will be able to seal the deal by Friday when the offer expires. Jenkins Hernandez won’t necessarily see much of the money from the house, though, as proceeds already have been attached to a wrongful death lawsuit Lloyd’s mother, Ursula Ward, filed against Hernandez in 2013.
The world's biggest motorcycle company isn't getting the credit it deserves. Honda Motor Co. has been the world's top maker of two-wheelers since 1959, but it's often thought of as primarily a car company. That's not really surprising: A scooter like the Activa may shift millions of units, but it's unlikely to get the pulse racing like an NSX sports car, or even the ubiquitous CR-V SUV. Honda is far and away the biggest motorbike manufacturer Still, investors pondering Honda's forecast 14 percent drop in full-year profit Friday would do well to reflect on the motorbike unit's little-heralded success. Activist investors looking for fresh ways of unlocking value from corporate Japan might want
