ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A woman in New Hampshire got a big surprise at a Burger King drive-thru. Instead of food, she got a bag full of cash.

Fosters.com reported that Janelle Jones discovered the $2,631 on her way home from the restaurant in Rochester, New Hampshire earlier this week. The cash was a Burger King bank deposit.

She reportedly called her husband and they decided to return the money. The couple said they considered keeping the money, but they are Jehovah’s Witnesses, and that “Jehovah sees everything.”

“A manager told me they would give me five free meals,” Janelle Jones said. “The manager said he talked to the corporate office and they said to tell me ‘thank you.’”

1. Stop expecting a man to save you.

There, I said it. It is ingrained in girls from childhood that prince charming will be somewhere waiting for us, and will save us from ourselves and our situations. No matter the strong representations of womanhood we had, or how much we do for ourselves, there is this still this pipe dream that many of us continue to believe that a man will give us the things that we can’t…

High school coach suspended after 161-2 win

Originally posted on kplr11.com:

According to ESPN, the head coach of a high school women’s basketball team in California has been suspended for two games following their 161-2 win. The game was the most lopsided victory in state history.

Arroyo Valley head coach Michael Anderson said he did not mean to run up the score against Bloomington High. At halftime, the score of the game was 104-1. When the teams returned to the floor, Arroyo Valley started their bench players. Anderson said he hoped that would make the game more even, but the bench players produced more than he had expected. One of the bench players was 8-of-9 behind the three-point line.

Bloomington head coach Dale Chung said Arroyo Valley used a “full court press” defense, a game plan that requires every defensive player to…

Obama says high-speed broadband is a necessity, not a luxury

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Wading into a states’ rights dispute over Internet access, President Barack Obama on Wednesday called for the repeal of laws that prevent local communities from creating their own broadband networks.

Obama, for the second time in three months, cast himself as an antagonist to large cable and telephone companies that provide the bulk of the nation’s Internet service.

Obama said faster speeds would create jobs and allow local businesses to compete in the global economy. “Today high-speed broadband is not a luxury, it’s a necessity,” Obama said from a storage area at Cedar Falls Utilities, with shelves full of coiled wire and other equipment.

Obama is encouraging the Federal Communications Commission to pre-empt state laws that stifle competition and said his administration will work to cut red tape so more communities can get connected.

“In too many places across America, some big…

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – A couple faces charges after investigators say they found cellphone videos showing the woman’s 12-month-old daughter putting a handgun in her mouth.

Mayor Peduto Defends Controversial Police Chief Photo To Fox News

Originally posted on CBS Pittsburgh:

PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) – Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto took to national television news to defend Police Chief Cameron McLay who is under fire for a controversial photo.

Peduto defended the new police chief on Fox News during an appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Host Bill O’Reilly asked Peduto Wednesday night whether Chief Cameron McLay was “really wise” to pose with a sign on New Year’s Eve that read, “I resolve to challenge racism work” with a Twitter hashtag saying “end white silence.”

McLay didn’t create the sign, but posed with it at a city celebration.

Some people have supported the chief for having his photo posted on social media with the sign, but the city’s police union president has said it suggests police, especially white officers, are racist.

McLay has apologized to his officers if they were offended by the gesture, and Peduto echoed the chief’s explanation that he is just…
