RQOTD - Monday

What is the big story on your local news today or yesterday, etc. Why is it such big news? Has it also made national headlines?

Our News is all about Tebow. The Broncos won yesterday, so Tebow will be the topic of conversation for a while. The media loves him, so I'm sure it's made national sports news as well.

The big headline between yesterday and today was a small airplane crash that occurred. It killed 4 people on board, 3 were from the area where I work. One of the people helped out with the high school dance team. So sad. I don't believe it made national news, but I am sure it was regional news considering they were from IN and the crash occurred in IL.

I'm trying to figure out why Tebow is such a big deal. We were at the game yesterday and neither team impressed me. I thought it was funny that Tebow was going to get all of the glory for winning, when I didn't see how he led his team to a victory. LOL.

Our recent top news story was about a local mom who was murdered by her ex. It was a really sad story and reinforced for me how sick some people really are.

We have had an on going story about some lady up North of here that "ran out of gas" and took her four year old daughter with her but left her two year old in the car while she went to get gas. Of course the boy is now missing and the car wasn't out of gas. Makes me sick.

I don't get it either. Everyone says he's not that great of a player and his game needs work. I'm not sure what the obesssion is. :question:

Our local university team won the national championships, so that was on the front page and made national headlines. Way to go Mauraders!

I have no idea what local Del Rio news is right now. Just got back tonight.

No idea what the big Memphis news is either other than it's snowing there right now. Apparently I left just in time to miss it! Yay!

These things seem to happen all to often. What a scary and terrible world this can be.

Oh my. How terrible.

Right now we have the Bernie Fine case taking over everything. He is (was as of Sunday) the assistant coach for Syracuse University basketball. He is now facing sex abuse charges that date back to the 70's from 2 men and a third came forward last Wednesday saying he was also abused by him in 2003. There is more to this story. Each new piece that comes out gets crazier but this is the basic beginning of it.

I don't know how much of the hype is his performance on the field (even though that's what they mainly talk about) and more of his very outspoken faith. Because he is SOOO vocal about his religious beliefs it keeps the spotlight on him - not always in a good way - and he has definitely made it where you love him or hate him. Obviously - I love how he is. Smile

No idea what the news is about here. Last time I flipped through it was about the effect of the drought on the Christmas tree farms here and how its dangerous to have a real tree this year because they are all dry and already falling apart. They said not to use real candles on your tree this year....not sure how many people still do that anyway.
