While watching television with my 11-year-old sister, a commercial about the decrease in smoking plays over and over again, telling of how Florida has dropped its teen smoking rate to 7 percent. Don’t get me wrong; it is great that teens have stopped purposely giving themselves lung cancer,...

Cold ears, dandruff and bad hair days-all sensible reasons for wearing a hat to school. Sure, we will survive without hats, but it’s not fair. The Stockbridge High School handbook reads, “Students will not wear hats, bandanas or hoods in school during regular school hours (7:37 a.m. to 2:17...
