Friday's story ideas

Public funding for political campaigns. Most people don't know how it really works, so explain it. (Since McCain & Obama will be talking about it a lot.)

Many states are pushing legislation to make English the official language.

With people driving less, that means less state tax revenue that's usually earmarked for road maintenance. How are states managing?

Teenage pregnancy is on the rise. Have movies like "Juno" changed the thinking on this subject among teens and made it "cool" to be pregnant?

As money gets tight, shoplifting is on the rise, especially at supermarkets.

Supreme Court decision makes it easier for older workers to prove age discrimination.

Millions of seniors and veterans have not claimed their IRS refund checks. Find some of these people and help them.
