of 26-year-old Brandon Lee King. Troopers said that King was

JSU contacting parents of problem students
Some universities in Alabama use an exception
to the federal student privacy law to notify parents when students
show signs of trouble with drinking or drugs. The federal Family
Educational Rights and Privacy Act protects the privacy of student
education records. But it allows colleges to notify parents of
student drug or alcohol violations at a time when they became

gravel near the shoulder and careened off a four- to five-foot drop
into the yard, hitting Washington and his son, George Benny
Washington. The senior Washington sustained blunt force trauma
injuries including massive head injuries and was found dead "30 to
40 feet" from the vehicle. Officials said the two women were
