    A new sign is taped to the window at Agape Massage Therapy and Chiropractic in Clinton Township. It reads, "Due to political pressure, we have been forced to close temporarily."

A group of local parents fear for their daughters' well being after the girls met a chiropractor, Dr. Craig Stasio. The parents say their daughters have since dropped out of school and cut all family ties, and now spend their days working at Stasio's massage clinic and worshiping with him. Stasio preaches of an upcoming doomsday and claims to have a special relationship with God.

Is this just a group of people dedicated to their work and faith? Or is it something else?

On the panel:

FOX 2's Rob Wolchek
Jim Marshall, friend of Craig Stasio
Rich Fisher, daughter involved with Stasio's ministry
Dr. Gerald Shiener, psychiatrist

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom. "This is the latest and then most effective sanitization method available today," says Bill Swan, the owner of the Goddard School. He purchased the ZONO Sanitech for his school about six months ago. The machine is the size of a double refrigerator and uses oxygen to kill viruses and bacteria.
