On Site School Bath

SCHOOL BATH

As a parent., as we relate this story to you. You will bristle; its infuriating. This is a story that is just coming out now, but last November a school nurse and counselor forced an 8-year-old Texas boy to bathe after telling him he "smelled badly, was dirty and had bad hygiene.  This was at Peaster School District in Fort Worth.  The parents say it was such a terrible incident and a violent washing that it has traumatized the boy.

She Demands What?!?!

MADONNA LIST

If her MDNA tour demands are any indication, it seems Madonna is still a Material Girl! The pop star’s backstage rider states she is traveling with a whopping 200-person entourage including 30 bodyguards, personal chefs, a yoga instructor, an acupuncturist and even an on-site dry cleaner.

ATM Malfunction

BONUS CASH

Over the weekend Brad’s friend scored some bonus cash at the ATM and kept it.

He was at a C-store and used the ATM which is owned by a larger bank here in East Tennessee.

He went in to get $20 bucks.

Of course for the convenience of getting cash he had to pay a usage fee which was pretty expensive.

Out of the cash dispenser comes the $20 he requested but also an addition $20 bill. The $20 bills were stuck together.

So he walked away with the extra $20 and debated all weekend about keeping it or not.

Strangers or No?

Kids were on our neighborhood playground and a Church van pulled up.  The youth from their ministry got out and offered the kids Popsicles to talk about VBS and hand them pamphlets. 

The kids took the Popsicles....some of them ran.

The pastor could NOT understand how he had done anything wrong.

They thought they were saving souls and we thought they were opening kids up to Stranger Danger!

RIP Rodney King

RODNEY KING

Rodney King, the black motorist whose 1991 videotaped beating by Los Angeles police officers led to some of the nation's most destructive race riots, has died at age 47.

His death was confirmed to the Associated Press by Suzanne Wickham of Harper Collins, who published King's 2012 book The Riot Within My Journey from Rebellion to Redemption.

King was stopped for speeding in March 1991 by four officers who hit him more than 50 times, kicked him and shot him with stun guns. A bystander videotaped the beating.

The Worth of A Dad

DADS VALUE

I need a raise!

We hear some women complain that they aren’t paid equally to men. Well, ladies as it turns out you are worth more than us guys.

A new survey says that fathers are worth about one-third as much as mom around the house.

 

Insure.com released its annual Father's Day, finding that dads are worth about $20,248 -- approximately $1,000 less than the inflation-adjusted value of 10 years ago.

The website matched government wage data to 13 different fatherly household tasks to calculate the index.
