McDonald’s Will Start Offering Salads With Extra Value Meals
In an effort to offer more healthy options, McDonald’s said Thursday (September 26th) that it’s going to introduce salads, fruits and vegetables that customers can order as sides with their sandwiches instead of fries. McDonald’s also said it will only advertise water, milk and juice for its kids’ Happy Meals. The changes were announced in a joint statement with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a group working to reduce childhood obesity that was founded by the Clinton Foundation and the American Heart Association. The new options are being made in 20 markets around the world, including the U.S, and will start within three years and be available in all 20 of them by 2020.
The Best Best Man Toast Ever!!!
Next time you’re enduring a painfully awkward wedding toast, think of this hilarious alternative by a pair of musician brothers to help get you through. Not wanting to cry during a traditional toast, the brothers, “Rufus Starlight” and “Baddy Paris” (which we believe are their stage names), made this funny video toast for their newly married brother. And if you like the incredible campiness of ’80s music at all, this video toast is SO much better than a tipsy, tear-filled rambling of memories that only a few people will appreciate. “Do not forget. You are our brother,” they sing. We’re pretty sure he’ll never forget

Ex-NFL Player Whose Home was Trashed Now Wants Teens Charged
Former NFL player Brian Holloway, whose upstate New York vacation home was trashed by hundreds of trespassing teens who held a blowout party there over Labor Day weekend, said yesterday (September 26th) that he now wants charges brought against them. Holloway, who played for the New England Patriots and L.A. Raiders in the 1980s, said that he’d decided to press charges after waiting more than three weeks for the teens to take responsibility. He told AP, “The parents had a chance and students had a chance to come forward, and only four did.” Holloway had re-posted party pictures the teens had put up on social media on the website, helpsaveme300.com, in an effort to get them to come forward, take responsibility for their actions and change their behavior. But he said instead that some parents were angry about his website and a lawsuit was even threatened. Holloway said there was at least $20,000 worth of damage done to the home near the Massachusetts border.
Entire High School Football Team Suspended
A high school football coach in Roosevelt City, Utah recently suspended his entire team for online bullying. Coach Matt Labrum tells the Deseret News, “We felt like [they] weren’t respecting the teachers, what they were trying to do inside the school, other people’s time. Overall, our program wasn’t going where we wanted it to go. We weren’t reaching the young men like we wanted to reach them. We said, ‘We’ve got to make a change’. We were pretty open with (the players) about what we’d heard. We don’t want that represented in our program. … Whoever it is (doing the bullying), we want to help get them back on the right path.” The coaches told the team that they would not be allowed to play football again until they had earned the privilege, and outlined a plan through which they could do so.”
Matt wrote this letter to his players:
Gentlemen, we are not pleased with how our football brothers are representing our family, school, community, alumni, family and yourselves. It is a privilege to play this wonderful game! We must earn the opportunity, to have the honor to put on our high schools jersey each Thursday and Friday night! The lack of character we are showing off the field is outshining what we are achieving on the field. We want student-athletes that are humble to learn and grow through adversity and success on and off the field. We want a team that others want to associate themselves with and support; winning isn’t the most important criteria for that to happen.
Humbleness, thankfulness, humility, respect, courage and honor are much more important than winning ballgames! We can achieve both if we start to act with others’ feelings in mind and focus on how we can make someone else’s day instead of just wrapped up in ourselves. WHEN WE ARE WORKING ON THIS AND ACHIEVING THIS WE WILL BE MOLDING OUR CHARACTER IN A POSITIVE WAY! Right now we are way off as a collective group. We want change and are going to make changes now.
As of tonight we are no longer playing football until we meet certain criteria!
TURN YOUR JERSEYS IN NOW!
Saturday: 7:00 a.m. electing captains “Attitude Reflects Leadership” — Remember the Titans.
Monday: 3:30 we will be doing a service project during practice time, come prepared to work, then we are all required to attend the Cougar Legend Banquet. Find ways to serve during this event.
Tuesday: We will be performing more service in lieu of practice.
Wednesday: Study Hall begins at 3:30 and we better have specific items to work on. We will be in there for the duration of practice. You must have enough work for 2 hours.
Criteria to EARN jersey back for Friday’s Game
1) Attend all practices that we have planned and any others that may come up.
2) Be on time and totally prepared
3) No F’s or discipline problems
4) Do an individual service project for your family, give me a typed report of it and pictures and have your parents sign it. (Due Wed. before study hall)
5) Memorize and pass this quote off to one of the coaches at some point during study hall
“Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast is not given to us. We have to build it, piece by piece — by thought, by choice, courage, and determination.”
If you meet ALL criteria by Wednesday night, you will have earned the privilege to play in the games on Thursday and Friday. If you fail then you will miss this week’s game.
