Scottsboro Boys

The state of Alabama recently took a step towards righting one of the most egregious miscarriages of justice ever perpetrated in this country, issuing posthumous pardons to three members of the "Scottsboro Boys," who were wrongly accused in 1931 of raping two white women on a train. Eight of the nine charged were swiftly convicted and sentenced to death by an all-white jury, with a mistrial being declared for the ninth, 13-year-old Roy Wright.

University guest lecturer at NCMS

North Central Middle School students in Mrs. Stogner's seventh grade science class had a guest visitor from the University of Notre Dame. Emily Amenson, a Ph.D candidate in Analytical and Physical Chemistry at Notre Dame, challenged students to learn all while having fun doing it. "The students loved learning more about acids and bases using indicators (litmus paper, ph paper and phenolphthalein) in order to determine relative ph," said Stogner.

What comes after the welfare state?

The welfare state is now omnipresent in every part of the United States. The federal budget is dominated by entitlement spending, with 45 percent of federal spending in 2012 going to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare (among other health care entitlements). Simultaneously, states are struggling under the fiscal burdens imposed on them by mandatory entitlement programs: for example, spending by the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (primarily on Medicaid) has averaged $1.21 billion over the last three budget years.
