When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

An Easton Pennsylvania substitute teacher was taken into custody Tuesday morning after admitting to a judge that she had been carrying on a sexual relationship with a student dating back to 2015.

According to Lehigh Valley Live, Kelly Aldinger, 49, had previously been arrested two weeks ago after a police officer on a routine patrol discovered Aldinger and the unidentified teen having sex in a car parked in the Easton Cemetery.

Authorities state that Aldinger, a substitute teacher in the Easton Area school district, said she initially met the student in class last year which led to an affair with the 16-year-old.

Aldinger had previously been listed as the council president of St. Paul’s III Lutheran Church, where she oversaw Christian education, along with supervising Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. It is not known if Aldinger holds any position with St. Paul’s at this time, with the church directory showing the council president position unfilled.

Aldinger, who is divorced and has at least one child, is currently living with her parents and unemployed after the school district terminated her contract, stated her attorney, Josh Fulmer.

If found guilty of institutional sexual assault, she faces up to 7 years in jail and $15,000 in fines.
