   THIS WEEK'S POLL
Some parents believe that childhood vaccines increase the risk of autism developing in their children. The national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention disagrees, and says numerous studies have found no connection between vaccines and autism. The CDC says both the vaccines and individual ingredients are safe. The concerns by parents have led to breakouts of measles and other illnesses controlled by vaccines.   Should parents have their children vaccinated?



Former State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill is suing former state legislator Tim Stubson, saying he defamed her by accusing her of acting illegally while in office. Stubson’s attorney says his comments are protected free speech. Hill’s attorney says calling someone a criminal is defamation.   Is accusing an elected official of acting illegally defamation, or protected as free speech?
