Yes, twenty-eight dollars. That’s not a typo. Patricia O’Grady moved to New York in 1955 to pursue a career as an actress. She and three girlfriends found a modest 2-bedroom apartment on the top floor of a four-story, […]

    Alvin Randlett was beloved by his community throughout his life. In death, he gave his life savings back to it.

Randlett truly loved that building and all who walked its halls. “He would take his personal days off to take field trips to chaperone the kids,” Siska says. Although […]

  • Delaware is now the first U.S. state to fully ban child marriage

    Delaware has made history as the first state in the nation to ban child marriage under all circumstances. Democratic Gov. John Carney signed a bill last week making it illegal for anyone under age 18 to get married, even with parental consent. Before this, minors in Delaware could get married at any age with parental consent and a judge’s approval, officials said. Despite most US state laws setting the age of marital consent at 18, every other state and the […]
