Months of argument and anguish over Mayor Rahm Emanuel's push for sweeping school closings came to a climax Wednesday as his hand-picked Board of Education voted to shut 49 elementary schools and transfer thousands of children to new classroom settings.

Dear Steve and the crew, I am a 21-year-old college student with a five-year-old daughter. I was dating my daughter's father for five years before I had her. Recently, I found out that he lied to me the whole time. He is actually 36 years old and has two kids by another woman. Whom he is living with. One day she called me and ask how did I know her man. I was speechless because he warned me that a woman was going to call me, but he claimed it was his sister. She told me how she had a five-year-old son by him that was only two months old. We did a three way call and I was on mute and he denied everything and said that my daughter wasn't his. After confronting him about it, he decided to drop out of my daughter's life and hasn't helped me out ever since. What should I do? I tried child support and that doesn't help because he denied her and doesn't want to take the DNA test. What should I do? PS: All six of my uncles want to fight him.

The Thunder All-Star is pledging $1 million — through The Durant Family Foundation — for relief after deadly tornadoes tore through the midwest on Monday. The American Red Cross said Durant’s commitment is meant to match other donations and be an incentive for more people to contribute.
