"I went back in the house and whooped her on her arm," Toussaint said. Upset, the girl threatened to dial 911. "I asked, I said, 'You want to call the police on me?' And she said, 'Yes.'

    I listened to part of the President's speech at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, given last Thursday (July 10, 2014) on the radio as I drove to Lockhart. One part of his speech leapt out at me and I haven't heard or read of anyone commenting on this particular quote. "When I think about equal pay, I think about my grandmother working her way up at a bank with nothing but a high school education and becoming the vice president of the bank, but always being kind of passed over for the next stage by men who were less...

    Former President Bill Clinton says his wife would rather be a grandmother than president. In an interview on “CBS This Morning” Tuesday, anchor Charlie Rose asked the 41st president which role Hillary Clinton would prefer taking on. “If you ask her, I think she’d say grandmother. But I have found it best not to discuss that issue,” he said with a laugh. The Clintons' only daughter, Chelsea, is married but does not have any children. “My goal is to live to be a grandfather. The rest of it is out of my hands,” Clinton said. With three years until the...

Ford, 51, of the 5200 block of West Adams Street, inflicted so many injuries on the girl over a long enough period and neglected her so badly that before she died Friday, Gizzell had maggots living in a head injury that had spread to another part of her scalp.

Lenore Zimmerman, who lives in Long Beach, says she was on her way to a 1 p.m. flight to Fort Lauderdale when security whisked her to a private room and took off her clothes. “I walk with a walker — I really look like a terrorist,” she said sarcastically. “I’m tiny. I weigh 110 pounds, 107 without clothes, and I was strip-searched.” TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said a review of closed circuit TV footage from the...
