Forest Hills Northern Students Music Video a Winner (video)

Life as a teenager is tough.  Teenagers have parents who are stupid...or so my girls said to me...classmates who may, or may not, accept them, the wanting to be in the "right crowd."

A viewer wrote her an email claiming that she was setting a poor example for young people in the community because she is overweight. While Jennifer tried to laugh it off, several other people in the news media could not, including her husband, news anchor Mike Thompson.
