GRAMBLING.jpg

GRAMBLING — His team’s kicking game is so bad this season that Grambling State University football Coach Doug Williams is considering all viable options, including women.
Desperate for a kicker immediately, he said he’ll consider “one of the soccer girls who can kick it through the upright.”
Williams said he’s open to options and suggestions, including international students on campus who have grown up playing what Americans call soccer, maybe students who play on the university’s intramural center club soccer team. “I would love to see one or two them try out,” the coach said in an interview.

Protecting your child from common, everyday hazards involves more than simply just covering up the plug holes at every outlet.
September is set as National Baby Safety month, and with more and more parents each day becoming responsible for children, the quest to help keep toddlers and infants safe has become a task that is difficult for many.

On Friday, thousands of people waited in line for hours, some even camped out, just to own the coveted iPhone 5 on the day of its release, instead of having to wait a few weeks for it to come in the mail or restock in the stores.
I am perplexed by this behavior for multiple reasons.

Even while driving to work on Friday morning, I heard Kidd Kraddick and his co-host discussing one individual’s attempt to sell his spot in line for roughly 1,000 British pounds.
