Wednesday's story ideas

Summer camp enrollments are down. Has cutting back on spending finally trickled down to kids?

Emergency room workers say young people can often have bad reactions to energy drinks, and be "drunk" on caffeine.

Some states are starting "drug recycling" programs at nursing homes, in which unused drugs are checked by a pharmacist and then re-prescribed. Saves a ton of money.

Some cities with overcrowded prisons are proving monetary incentives for companies that hire ex-cons and rehab them.

Online realtors get help from the Justice Department, as the DOJ rules they can have access to all listings. This theoretically saves the buyer some commission cost.

Pregnant women who eat a lot of seafood while expecting often give birth to smarter kids.

Many people trying to unload their SUVs are finding out they owe more than the car is worth. So what's the best course of action?

Childhood obesity rates have finally stopped climbing. Is this due to better food choices and fewer soda machines at schools?
