A popular Southern California pastor and school board member says he could be sued for voting against implementing a policy that mandates teaching pro-LGBTQ sexual ethics in public schools.
In an email republished in a July 7 First Things article, Chad Vegas writes:
"CA has mandated this [school transgender policy] for the whole state. I have served on the largest high school board in CA, and the nation, for 12 years. I basically lead that board. Our board voted to adopt the new law into policy. I voted against it. I was breaking the law for doing so. I could be personally sued and our attorney tells me the board insurance won't cover me because I am breaking the law and I am a bigot." more >>

For this run, Dean and Sam Winchester will continue their quest of hunting for demons, ghosts and monsters.

Season 12 will have a different showrunner since Jeremy Carver will focus on Frequency and will be replaced by Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb who previously served as executive producers of the show.

This show was created by Erik Kripke and premiered on September 13, 2005 on the WB Network. more >>

A bird was tested positive of the West Nile virus in Santa Cruz County, California. Public health officials said that this is the first confirmed case of the West Nile virus in the county this year. The dead bird was found in the Upper Westside of Santa Cruz, near Nobel Drive, which means that virus-infected mosquitoes are most likely living around the area. The Santa Cruz' Mosquito and Vector Control District has sent their technicians to the area to look for any infected mosquitoes or breeding ground.
So far, there have been no reported human cases of the West Nile virus in the state this year. Health officials advised the public to report dead birds or squirrels that may have possibly acquired the virus in the area by contacting (877)968-2473 or visiting westnile.ca.gov.
The WNV (West Nile Virus) is a virus that humans can get through mosquitoes. Transmission of the virus will lead to an infection in which humans can either have few or even no symptoms at all. Some symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, muscle pain, nausea, loss of appetite, vomiting and rashes. The infection usually surfaces between 2 to 15 days. The virus can also cause neurological symptoms. more >>
