It seemed like a surefire recipe: Take the No. 1 teen drama in TV history, update it, stoke the publicity fires with news of returning favorite characters from the original, and the CW would land a huge hit.

Worried about making a great impression on the first day of school? Even Miss Teen USA, Logan West, admits to feeling nervous on first days. "I was like petrified," the 18-year-old says. "I think it's just because it's a new year, it's new people, it's everything. " Often it's tempting to want to start a new school year - or any new chapter - with a totally new look as well. Just last weekend Miley Cyrus chopped her long locks into an edgy pixie crop and tweeted it for all the world to see. "Miley's cut is a bold move, and I have to say it's flattering on her," says Yesenia Almonte, beauty director for Seventeen magazine.

Los Angeles County supervisors Tuesday took another step toward placing a $6.2-million teen health center at San Fernando High School. The health center would be open to Los Angeles Unified School District students and provide services including physical exams, immunizations, mental health services, birth control and family-planning services. The county would build and maintain the 5,400-square-foot facility, but it would be operated by Northeast Valley Health Corp. under a contract with the school system.

A New York high school student was killed Friday evening after he stuck his head out of a moving double-decker party bus and struck an overpass, officials said. Sixteen-year-old Daniel Fernandez and dozens of other teens had boarded the bus at their school in Queens and were headed toward a sweet-16 birthday party in Garfield, N.J., said Steve Coleman, spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The bus had just left the George Washington Bridge at about 6:30 p.m. when Fernandez stuck his head out of the escape hatch on the ceiling and hit the underside of the overpass, Coleman said. He was pronounced dead at a local medical center.
