A story about my little angel in the backyard

My Little Angel in the Backyard
I know you and you’re here/In every day we live
I know her and she’s here/I can feel her when I sing
Hey Laura, where are you now/Are you far away from here?
I don’t think so/I think you’re here/Taking our tears away
When you think of Laura laugh don’t cry
I know she’d want it that way
— “Think of Laura” by Christopher Cross

The fact that he’s on a 53-player NFL roster, much less starting, in only his second season may prompt the disbelievers to check his Wikipedia bio several times.
You sure he isn’t a ball boy or a concession worker at Levi Stadium?
Nope.

in

A clerical error caused Ruston’s Planning and Zoning Commission to postpone a decision on a developer’s request to build 24 townhouses on a roughly 2-acre site on Kavanaugh Road.
