The headline is becoming more and more common: "Man gets 13-year term in sexual abuse case."A 54-year-old Taneytown man, said the news article three weeks ago, had molested both his stepdaughter and his stepdaughter's daughter. The abuse of the stepdaughter had included intercourse while the young woman was pregnant.The abuse of the stepdaughter's daughter began when the child was 3 and continued for about 12 years.Sexual abuse of children is an epidemic in this country.The irony here is that, at about the same time that news story ran, protests over a fictional story about a sexual-abuse victim have caused more controversy in Carroll County than has the incidence of real abuse.

Q: I am a 12-year-old girl who likes a 14-year-old boy. We are both in the sixth grade. (I know he's failed.) We both like each other and so I asked him to go with me. He said, "I don't know." That was OK, but about a week later, I asked him for my answer and he said, "Maybe."Then I asked him to go to the movies and he said, 'Maybe." I still like him and everything but this "maybe" and "I don't know" stuff is getting on my nerves. What should I do?A: He isn't ready to go with you or he'd say "Yes.

The co-founder of an Annapolis-based support group for incest victims was convicted yesterday of fondling two young women, including one who was being counseled by the organization and lived at the man's home.David B. Fulghum, 42, was given two suspended 30-day jail sentences, three years of supervised probation and a $1,000 fine. He faced four counts of fourth-degree sexual offense, all misdemeanors, and was found not guilty on two of the charges.The conviction will probably mean the end of the Onionskin Collective, the incest victim support group founded in 1989 by Fulghum and his live-in girlfriend, Gloria Arnold, who testified she herself was a victim of incest.

New York -- "Next on 'Donahue': Bible-thumping parents have sex with their kids."With those words, the show was on.

Betty Smith, his silver-haired wife, was "nurse of the year" at a convalescent center.

It may be hard to imagine anyone turning down advertising dollars in this economy. But that's what radio station WMIX-FM (106.5) did yesterday when it refused to air ads from WBFF-TV (Channel 45) News at Ten promoting a report on incest and another on priests who have sex with children."The ads were just too graphic and too vivid in their description," said Bob Lind, vice president and general manager of the station. "Many of our listeners are women 25 to 34, young mothers. . . . And this is just not what we're looking for."
