    WHITTIER (KABC) -- Becoming an Eagle Scout is the greatest achievement for anyone who joins the Boy Scouts of America. A young woman from Whittier has now joined that elite rank.For most of its history the Boy Scouts has been all about the boys. But in 2018 the Boy Scouts opened the door to girls like Amy Allinson, and now she has joined an exclusive club, Eagle Scout."It took a lot of leadership, it took participation, to lead scouts in our troop. I had a lot of help from family," said Allinson.Her brothers are also scouts, and so is her dad, and he can't hold back his excitement over his daughters accomplishments."She jumped in with both feet and I'm proud of her because she has done everything required," said Roy Allinson.One of Amy's challenges to become an Eagle Scout involved creating hygiene kits for foster kids."In the kit were feminine...
    On May 3, 2016, Virginia Roberts was cross-examined in a U.S. court, having brought a defamation action against Ghislaine Maxwell, who had accused her of lying. Maxwell's lawyer asked her: 'Again, is there more than one truth, Miss Roberts?' She replied: 'No, there's not more than one truth.' Not more than one truth, perhaps. But there is sometimes more than one version of an alleged event. And on occasion these versions can seem to vary or evolve into a different scenario altogether. In 2011, Miss Roberts wrote the draft of a personal memoir. Titled The Billionaire Playboys' Club, it describes her life from sexual abuse in childhood, homelessness and drug-taking in her teenage years, through being 'recruited' as an underage 'sex slave' by Epstein and Maxwell to her escape and redemptive marriage to her Australian husband, Rob Guiffre. She offered the manuscript to at least two U.S. literary agents with...

The start of the NBA season is eight (!) days away and preseason is already rolling. The action has been sloppy at times and many star players either aren’t playing or aren’t playing meaningful minutes. But we’ve still seen some fun performances, a few of which might even be instructive for the season ahead. LaMelo Ball hits all your preconceived notions in his first gameBall’s first preseason wasn’t really surprising, except in how closely it stuck to the laziest evaluations of him as a draft prospect. He had 4 assists, most of the stunning, how-the-heck-did-he-do-that variety. He also went 0-of-5 from the field (one of those was actually an attempted lob pass that hit the rim) and had 4 turnovers. He’s not going...
    An attorney representing Epstein victims said that former U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta shut down an Epstein investigation though the FBI was aware that Epstein’s Florida crimes might be just the tip of the iceberg.  In the best case scenario, the FBI was “willfully ignorant or just flat ignorant,” Attorney Spencer Kuvin said. But worst case scenario, he warned, the sweetheart deal was the product of conversations between federal officials and Epstein’s lawyers that have not been made public. “To say that the FBI was ignorant and just didn’t know, doesn’t really hold water,” Kuvin said. “They would’ve had to have been so inept to think that this stopped at the gates of Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion.” Former U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta shut down an investigation into convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein though the FBI was aware that Epstein may have committed crimes outside of Florida, an...

    The youngest American adults are by far the worst at taking precautions to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and PRevention (CDC) reports.  An average of 20 percent of people between ages 18 and 29 said they don't wear a face mask between May and June, and about 60 percent of that group said they took one or no other precautions to help protect themselves and others from COVID-19.    Young people are now the main drivers of increasing coronavirus cases across the U.S., which are now hitting record highs for daily infections.  COVID-19 is not particularly dangerous to young people, but they are far from invincible from it.  And as temperatures fall, social activities move indoors and families gather for the holidays (against the advice of many public health officials), the odds that younger Americans expose their more vulnerable elders to the virus will go...
    Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions told five of the U.S. attorneys along the Mexican border that they needed to 'take away children' from their parents if they were illegal immigrants, no matter how young they are.  The shocking revelation was made during a two-year inquiry by the Justice Department's inspector general into President Trump's 'zero tolerance' family separation policy.  'We need to take away children,' Sessions told the group, according to participants' notes, the New York Times reports.  Notes added that he continued: 'If care about kids, don't bring them in. Won't give amnesty to people with kids.'  'We need to take away children,' Sessions told the group of AGs, according to a draft report from the Justice Department's inspector general According to Justice Department's inspector general Michael E. Horowitz, Sessions and other top officials understood that 'zero tolerance' meant separation and could also possibly deter future immigrants In...

Brown | AFP | Getty Images Children in the U.S. are more likely than kids in other countries to have underlying conditions that places them at an increased risk of becoming severely sick with Covid-19, complicating the U.S. debate over how and whether to reopen schools this fall, former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said Monday.  President Donald Trump has been pressuring U.S. schools to reopen this fall, tweeting last week that schools in "Germany, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, along with many other countries" were "open with no problems." But Gottlieb said Monday it's difficult to compare the U.S. to most of those countries because they were able to bring the level of daily infection down to...
    Authorities across the Southern United States are warning of worrying signs of young people becoming more susceptible to coronavirus, amid suggestions that lax social distancing and the reopening of bars is to blame. Health officials and lawmakers in Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, Texas and Mississippi are all reporting spikes in the number of people in their 20s and 30s getting infected. From the beginning of the pandemic up through May 30, the median age of positive coronavirus cases was 48, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said.  In several Southern states that average age is dropping.  Crowds of young people unconcerned about COVID-19 flocked to Florida's beaches in May A group of friends hang out on Miami Beach on Friday, as Florida sees a surge in COVID cases Older people are still more likely to suffer severe effects of the virus, but the trend of young...
