Originally we planned for this event to be a fundraiser for a young lady named Karliegh, who is a 12 yr old girl that founded the orginization “Teens Against Cyber Bullying”. The proceeds would go towards furthering her anti-bullying work. With the recent tradgidies of Dec 14th we have decided to split the proceeds with half benefiting the victims of the tradgedy at Sandy Hook Elementary.

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Police are investigating a report that a woman was assaulted on a Rapid bus on Thursday, Nov. 29, before she used pepper spray on the assailant.
The woman required treatment for facial injuries. A 2-year-old, hit with a small amount of pepper spray in the face, was OK after being treated by rescuers.
The man who allegedly assaulted the woman got off the bus at Ionia Avenue SW and Cherry Street, police said.
He ran away, but is believed to have been hit by pepper spray. Police said the man and woman had a relationship.
Police said the pepper spray did not affect any others.
Nolan Daniels Lotto Photo is a Facebook Hoax
Hopeful (and gullible) Facebook users wasted no time spreading this message far and wide across the platform. At the time of this writing, the photo has received over 550,000 shares!
For those of you that don’t know, the Powerball lottery paid out 588 million dollars this week, and Nolan is using the event as a way to dupe thousands of people. One of my own friends shared the photo, and when I called them out on it I got the typical response. “I figured it wasn’t true, but why not try?”
Gawker reports that the image isn’t genuine and has been Photoshopped. It has also been pointed out that on a legitimate ticket, the numbers would be presented from the smallest to the largest, and this photo clearly shows numbers out of order.
Before getting caught up in the moment, always take a few moments and verify Facebook rumors, updates and posts. It might save you some embarrassment from looking really silly to your friends!
