A newborn baby girl who police say was dumped in a trash receptacle by her 13-year-old mother could soon find herself a new home in the arms of the loving couple who helped rescue her in Merced, California, last Thursday.
Capt. Tom Trinidad told KCRA 3 that the baby girl was discovered by a man who was alerted by rustling and movement while he rummaged through a dumpster for recyclables at the Sunnyside apartment complex at about 5:45 a.m. The man, who was not identified, screamed on seeing the baby and attracted the attention of Jimmy and Annette Alvarez who joined him with a flashlight and called 911 after seeing that the baby was hardly moving.
"There were flies, gnats, all kinds of trash and I said, 'She can't be like that,'" Jimmy Alvarez told KRCA. He said he reached down into the dumpster and scooped up the child and wrapped her in his T-shirt. more >>
A New York high school has lifted its ban on a Christian student organization after first rejecting the students' request for renewal.
Ward Melville High School of East Setauket decided late last week to renew the group Students United in Faith after receiving a letter from the Liberty Institute, a conservative law firm.
Last year, administrators at the school denied SUIF recognition under the charge that the student organization lacked sufficient numbers of interested persons to garner recognition. more >>
This amused wife, Tristen Combs, decided to stroll into the bathroom when daddy was giving his baby a bath. She discovered just how great of a father her husband is when she caught him off guard.
Tristen caught her husband singing an adorable song to their newborn son during his bathing time. Not only is the baby enjoying daddy's singing abilities, the dogs are tuned in as well. As she is recording him, he peeked over to see her spying on them and didn't seem to like the attention much.
This is a great example of a loving and caring father for his newborn! more >>

Inspired by the concept of "flash mobs," an organization based in Buffalo, New York, has opted to perform "Mass Mobs" wherein large numbers of people agree to meet at a given local Catholic congregation.
Whereas a "flash mob" will do various performances or things in a random public space and then disperse, this group will surprise a given church to attend mass at their facility.
An Ohio community sent a message to the atheist advocacy group Freedom From Religion Foundation Friday night as community members made it known ahead of time that they would hold a large public prayer following the completion of the local public high school football game.
In response to the Licking Valley School District receiving two separate letters within a week from Freedom From Religion Foundation condemning the school district for not doing enough to enforce the removal of religion in public schools, community members told the Newark Advocate that they are planning a public gathering for prayer following the Licking Valley High School football game tonight.
Licking Valley's game against visiting Watkins Memorial was the high school's first home football game since the school district received letters on Sept. 23 and Sept. 30. The letters addressed "religious messages" displayed on t-shirts worn by the high school's marching band and scolded the school's football coaches for participating in team prayers. more >>
