Share Tweet Share Email Comments Print ADVERTISEMENT In 1980, a Sylvania Southview senior told The Blade that drinking and high school went hand-in-hand. “It takes place just about everywhere,” said then-17-year-old Larry Lacure. “Each athletic event comes along and everyone is out there before the game with their beer. And then there are the parties afterwards, and everyone is drinking again. Just about from freshman on up, drinking is a very social event.” The young Lacure’s assessment provides a glimpse of high school party culture in the Toledo area nearly 40 years ago, a time that has roared back into the public consciousness as U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faces allegations of drunken sexual assault that date back to his days at Georgetown Preparatory School. Christine Blasey Ford in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday shared her memory of Judge Kavanaugh groping her and trying to … [Read more...] about Local students, graduates talk about high school drinking culture in wake of Kavanaugh hearings

World To win the presidency in 2017, Emmanuel Macron had to reinvent himself. The insider turned outsider disrupted French politics, creating his own center-left party and promising to rescue the continent from a wave of euroskeptic populism.
