School That Gave Controversial Creationist Quiz Is Closing
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Blue Ridge Christian Academy, the school that made headlines after one of its creationist "science" quizzes was posted online, is officially closing down, according to the Travelers Rest Tribune. The private, religious South Carolina school received attention in April when one of its science quizzes was posted on Reddit and subsequently went viral. The quiz, which was meant for fourth graders and titled “Dinosaurs: Genesis and the Gospel,” affirmed creationist beliefs, including the notion that dinosaurs and humans previously roamed the earth together and that God created dinosaurs. While the school received an onslaught of criticism for the quiz, administrators also thought the attention could be a blessing in disguise. After the quiz was posted online, the financially troubled school began receiving monetary donations from around the world. By late May the school had received about $15,000 from more than 70 countries. Still, the school needed $200,000 in order to ...

Man jailed for scooter blaze
Chad - almost 5 years
A MAN who took a scooter and set fire to it has been jailed. William David Richardson, of Meadow Cottages, Mansfield Woodhouse, appeared at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court last Wednesday when he admitted aggravated vehicle taking from December of last year. The 23-year-old also pleaded guilty to criminal damage after a council notice board was damaged by the flames from the Piaggio Zip scooter. He was sentenced to four months imprisonment for aggravated vehicle taking, and one month for criminal damage, to run concurrently. The court was told that Richardson had taken the bike from a driveway in Mansfield, knowing it belonged to his sister’s partner. Richardson had claimed that the bike had simply fallen over and burst into flames, but District Judge Diane Baker was told that a fire officer who attended had said it was not possible. In mitigation, Mark Marriott said his client had taken the scooter as a ‘lark’, to play a trick on the owner.

Local elections 2012: City counts on its election team
The Evening Telegraph - almost 5 years
PEOPLE fought and died for the right to vote. And while voting turnout may sadly be diminishing election night is still a theatre of high drama – and sometimes upsets and controversy. John Baker spoke to the team who will be delivering the results on Thursday evening. THE city council elections at the Town Hall on Thursday are likely to run into the early hours of the morning as political wannabes and veteran members pace anxiously, waiting for their name to be read out as a successful candidate – or an also-ran consigned to the record books. Even those who have decades of experience in office still admit nerves on such big occasions, when political careers can be blotted and emerging stars can take their first steps into local government. Gillian Beasley has been returning officer for Peterborough City Council since 1999, three years before she took over as the authority’s chief executive. The returning officer is an officer of the council who is appointed under the Representat ...
