Go Dores! - 06/10/14

  Hats off to Tim Corbin and the Vanderbilt University baseball team.  All those guys do is win.  Corbin sends guys to the pros every year and the guys he has back step up and make the university and the city proud.
  I'm not a huge baseball fan but I am a fan of excellence and we're seeing it.  And they seem to be great citizens to boot.
  Good luck in the College World Series.

OBAMA - BOYFRIEND

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Maybe he thought he was talking to a certain one of President Obama's Democratic predecessors. A Chicago guy saw Barack Obama casting an early vote in Chicago the other day -- and when the president ended up standing up near his girlfriend, the man issued a mock warning to the chief executive: "Don't touch my girlfriend." The president took the joke in stride, laughing and saying of the boyfriend: "There's an example of a brother just embarrassing me for no reason." The woman apologized, but then Obama flipped the script on the make-believe jealous suitor. He gave the woman a kiss and told her to "Give him something to talk about."

ELECTRIC BILL

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- That should pay for an awful lot of lights on an awful lot of nights. A New Mexico man says he made an error while paying his electric bill that led him to overpay by thousands of dollars. KOB-TV reports Ira Karmiol made a mistake in keying in his bill payment -- instead of$278 dollars, he entered a fourth digit, rocketing the payment up to $2,787. He noticed the mistake a few days later and called the utility, which said its policy requires up to a month to process a refund. A spokesman for The Public Service Company of New Mexico says it will try to resolve the square up the matter "as quickly as possible."

BOBCAT ESCAPES

STAFFORD TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) -- It's one thing to see a Bobcat at a construction site -- since the machine is pretty popular. But a real, live, bobcat that keeps getting loose in a neighborhood is not so popular with New Jersey authorities. The Asbury Park Press reports Rocky the bobcat has again gone missing from the home of Ginny Fine in Stafford Township. The 38-pound feline was spotted later in the day -- but it ran off into the woods before it could be captured. Town officials and Fine have been clawing at each other over the bobcat's habit of busting loose. Authorities say if Rocky is caught, it will be taken to a zoo. Fine has already been cited for letting Rocky run free.
