    I drive back and forth from Little Orleans to Cumberland five days a week to go to work.

    In a survey released by the Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center, a growing majority of Americans say high school journalists should be free to explore controversial subjects without prior approval, but 38 percent say the First Amendment goes too far in the rights it guarantees, up 25 percent from the 2012 survey.
