Lindsay Lohan has recently begun a 90 day jail sentence, stemming from a July 6, 2010 Probation Revocation Hearing. The sentence also includes a 90 day rehab stay, after her release.

The once child fashion model has made a great career for herself throughtout the years. Her debut, at the age of eleven, in the Disney film, Parent Trap was only the beginning.

The model, actress, pop-singer and song-writer has accomplished performances between 2003-2005 in films such as: Mean Girls, Herbie Fully Loaded, and Freaky Friday. She also appeared in a few independent films: Emilio Estevez's "Bobby" and Robert Altman's "A Prairie Home Companion".

Fathers Raising Children

1123144_walk_on_pierHave you ever heard the expression "Mama's baby, poppas maybe?” I bet you have and a lot of times that is the case because, a mother cannot deny she is the mother of her child. However, a man can deny his children any day and time, until a DNA results proves him wrong.

Mothers are often forced to raise babies on their own and they hardly get the credit they deserve. Now days anyone can be a guardian to a child. Especially if one or both parents are not in the picture or can not provide financial support for the care of their children.

I remember when I was working for ACS, also known as Agency of Children Services, and came across some cases that did not have a mother in the home. As I began my research I started thinking if the mother was not deceased then why were they not in the picture? I was stunned about what I found. This particular case really touched my heart.

Snail Mail

snail_mailPost Master General John Potter made an announcement on Tuesday March 2 that the USPS would be cutting it services to the nation. Citing record breaking declines in volume as the culprit for the decision.

It seems like more Americans are relying on the internet to conduct business. At the same time rising gas prices are also taking a toll on the dwindling mail-order service. Potter was quoted as saying “The crisis we are facing gives us a historic opportunity to make changes that will lay the foundation for a leaner, more market-responsive Postal Service that can thrive far into the future.”

Now I am not one to gossip but, I am glad I don’t work at the post office. I am sure we all understand the old phrase “going postal”. The last thing anyone wants to do is threaten a postal worker’s pension plan. In fact, Potter did mention some changes to the system. However, he was very clear to not use the terms layoff or early retirement.
