Some things you just don’t brag about on social media. A promotion…okay. A clean bill of health from the doc…sure. A court ruling you were supposed to keep secret? No. That’s the lesson learned by a girl in Miami whose parents won a lawsuit against a private school and posted on Facebook, “Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver [prep school]. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.” What she didn’t know is that her father signed a confidentiality agreement. She did exactly what the confidentiality agreement was designed to prevent, and now they won’t get the $80,000 they were originally awarded. I’m gonna guess that European vacation isn’t happening now.
Congratulations to the Franklin Community High School wrestling team! What a year! First off, they win the 2014 IHSWCH Team State Duels Championship for the very first time in school history. Then the qualify 5 wrestlers to the State Individual Tournament! Four of the five that qualified placed in the tournament, as the cumulative team points earned the Grizzly Cubs a team state runner up finish behind first place Indianapolis Cathedral. FCHS’s runner up finish was the highest finish ever in school history.
Senior D.J. Smith won State Champion at 113 pounds. Junior Jacob Stevenson won State Champion at 170 pounds. Senior Conner Tolley earned third place at 220 pounds.
But maybe the most important award went to Senior Skyler Lykins, who finished 6th in the 138 pound class. Skyler won the prestigious Ward E. Brown Mental Attitude Award. An award honoring one state qualifier for their academic and athletic excellence. Skyler ranks in the top 5% of his senior class with a grade point average above 4.0.
So congratulations to head coach Bob Hasseman, his assistant coaches, and of course the parents of these great student athletes!
Moving in with that special someone can be a trying time — especially when you start going through the things you need and don’t need and the pile of stuff in the discard pile has more of your stuff in it than hers. A new survey has been released of the ten items that women love to throw away, no matter how much it means to you. Most of the time we guys don’t even know she’s throwing it away, because she’’ll do it one little piece at a time.
1. Clothes – Say good bye to all your old, holey t-shirts you’ve had for the last ten years.
2. Magazine Collections – You should have already ditched them when you started dating plus, it’s 2014 — go digital.
3. Old Hobby Stuff – To her, it’s nothing but a pile of cheap plastic and paint, but to you, it’s your life’s work.
4. CDs and DVDs – Notice it’s not her collection of romance movies that go. Instead it’s your action and comedies, and the only reason she’ll have is that she doesn’t like watching them.
5. Sofa – This one is pretty obvious.
6. Sports Memorabilia – This is the point you realize it was all a lie. She doesn’t like sports.
7. Artwork – By artwork we of course mean those posters of half naked ladies all over your room.
8. Your computer/gaming chair – She has other ideas for how you could spend that time…cleaning.
9. Your sound system – She isn’t throwing it away because it’s too loud. She is throwing it away because it take up to much space and doesn’t fit into her floor plan.
10. Fitness Equipment – You never use them anyway.
Just got done reading about my buddy Clayton Anderson. His new album is at #50 on the Billboard Country Album Chart! His new cd is called “Right Where I Belong” is really good. His recent show at the Vogue was awesome. Korn Country is very proud to play his music, and will follow his career. It’s actually pretty cool to watch the birth of a music career.
Look to hear more about Clayton and our amazing night in Indy soon! You can check out his web site by clicking here
Now it’s back to flipping through channels nightly. That’s the good thing about the Winter Olympics, they gave you a place to stop for a bit and wonder what gene is someone missing that they feel it’s a good idea to zip down a tube of ice head first on a sled, and be glad that it’s one that you weren’t missing. And, even though everyone says it’s about the sport and sportsmanship we love the medal count. Even though there isn’t a trophy for taking the most golds or the most overall it gives you a sense that one country is better than the others and this time around it’s Russia. They finished with 33 medals overall, including the most gold medals, with 13. Team U.S.A. was second overall, with 28. Now you can wait 4 years before you have to act like you care about curling.
