-Bikini-clad strippers protest church in rural Ohio-WARSAW, Ohio (AP) - Strippers dressed in bikinis sunbathe in lawn chairs, their backs turned toward the gray clapboard church where men in ties and women in full-length skirts flock to Sunday morning services. The strippers, fueled by Cheetos and nicotine, are protesting a fundamentalist Christian church whose Bible-brandishing congregants have picketed the club where they work. The dancers roll up with signs carrying messages adapted from Scripture, such as "Do unto others as you would have done unto you," to counter church members who for four years have photographed license plates of patrons and asked them if their mothers and wives know their whereabouts. The dueling demonstrations play out in central Ohio, where nine miles of cornfields and Amish-buggy crossing signs separate The Fox Hole strip clu
-Lindsay Lohan Is Licensed To Drive . . . - ‎Now that Lindsay Lohan is a free woman again, after serving 14 days in jail and 22 days in rehab to satisfy her probation violation for her 2007 DUI
-Self-checkout alcohol ban-In politics, things often are not as they seem. A case in point is Assembly Bill 1060, now awaiting action by the governor, a bill touted by proponents as necessary to prevent teens from obtaining alcohol and lessen incidences of drunken driving.

-Paralyzed high school player sues helmet maker Riddell-A Los Angeles attorney has filed suit against football-helmet manufacturer Riddell on behalf of an 18-year-old Pomona athlete who suffered permanent brain damage last season. Playing defensive tackle for Garey High School in an October game against Montclair High, Edward Acuna took a hit to the front of his helmet in the fourth quarter and quickly lost consciousness. He suffered a left subdural hematoma and was left partially paralyzed.
His attorney, Ilyas Akbari, claims there is a defect with the padding in the front of the helmet. "Our information is that Riddell Sports has known about this particular defect in their helmets for at least a decade," Akbari said. "It is a parent's worst nightmare to see their child suffer a catastrophic injury while playing the sport they love, especially when that injury could have been avoided by a known and simple fix." Riddell officials were not immediately available for comment. The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages.
-E-Cigarettes Spark New Smoking War-While the federal case is pending, sellers of e-cigarettes and "juice"—the nicotine-laced liquid that goes into the devices—continue to pop up online and in malls. 7-Eleven Inc. stores in California, New York, Texas and a handful of other states recently began selling an e-cigarette brand. Costco Wholesale Corp. in April stopped selling a version on its website because of concerns about the FDA's stance. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. also briefly offered a product on its website this year but discontinued it because it didn't attract much demand and the company was concerned about the FDA's position, a spokesman said.
