College shutters flower shop after backlash from businesses

Western Kentucky University has decided to shutter its flower shop after failing to resolve complaints of unfair competition made by local flower shops, according to a news report.

The reactions to the news have been mixed on social media, with business owners lauding the decision and others expressing disappointment at the change.

How to put yourself in a strong position for child custody

Entering into a child custody arrangement with the other parent of your child is stressful. This very well could turn into a battle that reaches the court system. When fighting for custody of your child, there are quite a few things you can do to put yourself in a strong position for winning. Just be sure to never let your child think it's all about winning.

This not only makes your children feel better about the situation, but it also shows the court how committed you are to raising your children and being in their lives.

Can a wrongful death lawsuit be brought on behalf of a fetus?
