Chiefs Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Earns Medical Degree

Kansas City Chiefs right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif became the first active NFL player to hold a medical degree when he graduated from McGill University School of Medicine in Montreal on Tuesday.


The Canadian native’s journey started eight years ago when he began medical school. After a football collegiate career which earned him the distinction of the being the best college football player in Canada, the Chiefs drafted him in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. The next season, Laurent had earned a spot as starting right guard and his been a key contributor to the team’s success since then.


Fortunately for Laurent, his advisers at McGill were able to create a plan for him to remain in school and help him to earn his degree while still competing in Kansas City. During the season, Laurent focused solely on football, however, he would switch gears during the off-season by focusing on his studies. Laurent said that he made a deal with himself that he could pursue his professional football dreams if he remained in school and earned his medical degree.


That dream came to fruition on Tuesday, as Laurent donned a white medical jacket decked out with his football number “76” and “Dr. Duvernay-Tarif” emblazoned on the top all in Chiefs red and gold colors. Earlier this year, Laurent told reporters that he wanted to add M.D. to the end of his last name on his official jersey. Laurent said the plans to focus on football going forward and he then will pursue his career in medicine when his football days are over.


The Kansas City Chiefs front office tweeted its support of Laurent, congratulating him on his latest accomplishment.

South Carolina’s Cake Decorating Controversy

For most parents, a child’s graduation is a time to party. You and your child both survived high school! This means, after first releasing the obligatory sigh of relief, digging in to a sugary piece of the celebratory cake. At least, that was the plan for one proud South Carolina mom. There was just one small problem; her son, senior Jacob Koscinski, was graduating with his school’s highest honors. His grade-point average, a lofty 4.79, earned Jacob the Summa Cum Laude distinction.


Jacob’s mom, Cara Koscinski, didn’t think twice about ringing her local grocery store in Charleston, South Carolina and requesting a cake with the Latin title, a common distinction awarded to high-achieving graduates around the world. The store, a part of the Publix chain of grocers spread across the south eastern United States, had other ideas. The bakery department at Publix believed the usage of the term “cum” to be too offensive for a cake, replacing the Latin word with a series of dashes.


Cara Koscinksi was not informed of the change and, having sent someone else to retrieve the cake, wasn’t even aware her message had been censored until presenting the cake to her son. Jacob and his family, according to the surprised mom, eventually found the humor in the situation but not before a few awkward conversations with those family members who were not aware of the term’s lewd double-meaning.


Publix, a beloved grocery chain in South Carolina, was willing to admit its mistake after Cara filed a complaint. The store refunded the Koscinski family the full cost of the cake, and Jacob is certain not to forget how controversial his achievement was.

Royals Win in 14 Innings

The Kansas City Royals are only three years removed from their World Series victory, but it may be a long time before they return to prominence. After losing the core of their championship team this off-season, the Royals have struggled to stay competitive in the AL Central. While Kansas City fans may be in for a long season, they got to see their team pull an extremely impressive win when they faced the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday, May 29.

Danny Duffy was supposed to blossom into an ace for the Royals, but his start to the 2018 season has been rather disappointing. Duffy had his best start of the season against the Rangers on May 24, and he put together another solid outing against the Twins on Tuesday. He surrendered only one run in his six innings. Minnesota’s lone run against Duffy came in the third inning on a bloop single to left field by Miguel Sano.

Minnesota starter Kyle Gibson put together an even better outing than his counterpart from Kansas City. Gibson struck out eight hitters in his seven scoreless innings. Addison Reed was tasked with preserving the one-run lead for Minnesota in the eighth inning, but he blew his second save of the season. The Royals tied the game with a bases loaded walk from Jorge Soler, but they were unable to do additional damage in the inning.

The game remained tied 1-1 until the Royals came up to bat in the 14th inning. After getting eight scoreless innings from their bullpen, the Royals sent everyone in Kauffman Stadium home happy with a walk-off home run by Alcides Escobar against Taylor Rogers. It was the first walk-off homer in the veteran shortstop’s career. Brad Keller will be on the mound as the Royals conclude their series with the Twins on Wednesday night.

South Carolina Has New Emergency App

If you need to evacuate or you lose power, then you will be happy to know that there is an app for that. The name of the app is #SCEmergency. You will get alerts when there is an emergency. You will also be able to get emergency tips.


Additionally, the app can tell you what route to take if there is an emergency and what items you need. You can download the app for free on Google Play or Apple. You can install it on your smart phone. Derrec Becker is the spokesman for the SC Emergency Management Division. He stated that the app has been in the making for the past two years.


Not only has the SC Emergency Management Department created an app, but they have also revamped their website. It cost them $100,000 to revamp the website. They stated that this app allows people to take more responsibility when a disaster hits.


Kim Stenson is the division director. She stated that this is a life safety issue. Many people choose to stay when they are told to evacuate. When Hurricane Matthew hit in 2016, only 50 percent of people choose to evacuate. The same thing happened when Hurricane Irma hit back in 2017.


Kim stated that disaster preparedness is something that she is concerned about. She stated that it is important to be prepared because you do not know when you will be able to get help. Many people have to wait several hours or days before they get help.

Cleveland Is Shining Midwest City On The Rise

Once written off as just another aging and fading Rust Belt city, Cleveland is once again on the rise. Cleveland has become nothing less than a premier American destination city. It is shattering records for tourism — people coming from all over the planet to have some fun in “The Rock And Roll Capital Of the World.”


That nickname, of course, denotes the fact that the Rock And Hall of Fame is located in Cleveland. The very term “rock and roll” itself was invented here in 1951 by Cleveland disc jockey Alan Freed. The Museum has become a major tourist draw and has put Cleveland back on the map like few other venues have done for any American city.


But this northern Ohio metropolis has recently scored heavily in other realms to burnish its image even further — not the least of which is the return of NBA mega-star LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers, a team that won the National Championship in 2016.


Cleveland’s iconic Major League Baseball team, the Indians, has also been enjoying a spate of winning seasons, drawing record attendance to games at Progressive Field. Yes, the Cleveland Browns remain among the worst teams in the NFL — but, hey, even Cleveland can’t have everything.


Yet another area that has culturally enriched this famously hard-working, blue collar city is a thriving theater scene. Forbes Magazine contributor Larry Olmsted called Cleveland’s theater district, “the second most vibrant after New York’s Broadway.” The Cleveland Museum of Art is among the best in the United States. It features a collection that includes the likes of Monet, Renoir and Dali. Cleveland civic developers spent a whopping $350 million upgrading the museum just two years ago.


From the best in pop culture to high art — to major league sports and a fantastic lakefront district on the shores of Lake Erie — Cleveland has emerged from corrosive piles of rust to become one of America’s most thriving cities.

Warren’s Second Attack Website Launches in GOP Primary

Party primaries have sloped towards ideological purity over any singular philosophy, record, or temperament of candidates, and the South Carolina Republican primary for governor doesn’t seem to be any different anymore.


John Warren, the businessman from Greenville hoping for his shot at incumbent governor Henry McMaster, recently launched a website directed at other party primary opponent, labor attorney Catherine Templeton. The attack website,, is simply a number of pages that lay out instances that the site’s author insists prove that Templeton isn’t ideologically pure enough to represent the Republican party in Columbia. Among other items, it attacks Templeton for voting for Democrats, no-bid contracts with state agencies, and criticisms she levied at now-President Donald Trump during the 2016 primary season, calling him a “big personality” and predicting his campaign would burn out against the serious contenders back in 2015.


The website is the second such site that Warren has tried, launching earlier in the season to attack the incumbent governor over his apparent incongruity between statements the governor has made and policies he has implemented.


The attack is not uncommon, and it is expected to be a very common one in a mid-term election season that many suspect will be defined by one’s loyalty or opposition to the current Trump administration.


But Warren may find he has bit off more than he can handle, Templeton served in Nikki Haley’s administration, who resigned her post as governor of South Carolina in 2017 to become Trump’s pick as ambassador to the United Nations. McMaster himself was popularly elected as Haley’s lieutenant governor, and assumed her role when she was confirmed by the Senate. South Carolina Republicans play by their own rule book, and Warren will need more than ideological games to jockey ahead of Templeton and the incumbent governor.

Why the Rural Midwest Communities are the Hardest Hit by the Opioid Crisis

As a national opioid crisis spreads across the United States, often the small towns experience the worst suffering. Our nations Why are our Midwest communities seemingly the hardest hit? There are some inherent attributes of these communities that expose them to the harsher side of the opioid crisis.




Many small communities deal with rural demographic and budgetary constraints that expose them even more than urban areas. While the urban communities in the Midwest still report disheartening statistics, small towns by their nature, have an exaggerated rate of opioid addictions.




There is always the insinuation that rural communities have fewer opportunities available for America’s youth. While this may open a portal for addictive behavior, more often the core cause is an educational ignorance about drug abuse. Sometimes these communities exhibit an unhealthy degree of denial.


Drug abuse for decades, has consistently carried a dark reference. For this reason, many influential people in small towns turn a blind eye to the obvious. The recent opioid epidemic has uncovered the reality of drug addiction. As the scourge of opioid abuse has infiltrated sleepy little rural Midwest communities, it has reached into the homes of the more affluent.


Beyond the tendency to avoid the stigma of drug addiction, these rural communities are frequently cash strapped at the governmental level. The mental health options are frequently poor, if available at all. Treatment alternatives are under financed and sorely understaffed.


Without any structure to recover, opioid addicts are left to fend for themselves. The results are obvious. Supported by utterly abysmal statistical evidence, these small Midwest communities continue to be some of the hardest hit by the opioid crisis.


While many seem to have an opinion about the cause, few present answers to solve the problem and heal these communities. The solution begins with acceptance, and only then can any solution produce results. Until then, the opioid crisis will continue to be a national epidemic that seems to rock the small Midwest communities the hardest.


Gamecocks Sign Big Time Recruits

For the past few seasons, one of the more interesting teams in college football has continued to be the South Carolina Gamecocks. In this time period, the team has continued to be led by head coach Will Muschamp. While he had a difficult first year in which he won just six games while losing seven, he continues to show a significant amount of promise and progress as his team improved its record significant than last year. Last year, the team was far more competitive in the SEC and finished with an overall record of 9 wins and 4 losses. This also included a very big win against the University of Michigan in the Outback Bowl.


While football fans have been taking notice of the improvement in South Carolina, so have recruits and the team now looks like it will continue to be very tough to deal with in coming years ( While the football program should have a pretty good set of freshmen joining the roster for the 2018 season, it now appears that they could have one of the best freshman classes in school history of the following year. At this point, the South Carolina Gamecocks 2019 freshman recruiting class is ranked number 7 in the country and it recently received a significant bump by signing a few big recruits.


One of the biggest recruits that the team was able to sign was Zach Pikkens, who is a very talented defensive end that also had a number of offers from top programs including Clemson and Georgia. Another top player was defensive back Jahmar Brown who is from Fort Lauderdale and reportedly had received more than 20 full-ride offers from some of the top programs across the country. These players should be defensive cornerstones for the franchise for years to come.
