Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins says he owes his career to his mom. When you hear her remarkable story of survival, you'll understand his devotion.

She can't see her son, but she knows he's there.

Seventeen years. That's how long it has been since she lost her vision when a woman she didn't know threw acid at her face, blinding and disfiguring her in a bout of jealous rage. Greenlee was a single mother of four in South Carolina, caught up in abusive relationships, hustling to survive. DeAndre was 10 years old. Over time, she regained her sight in spurts, but it disappeared completely a few years ago, just as her son was emerging as one of the NFL's brightest stars. Since then, millions of people have watched the Texans wide receiver dive for otherworldly catches on the national stage, racking up more receptions through the first six seasons of a career than any other player in NFL history. Greenlee sees Hopkins' highlights only in her mind. "I visualize everything that he does," she says. "The dreads, the body movement."


Atlanta police have charged a 15-year-old in the August shooting of two students outside a football stadium in southeast Atlanta.

The shooting, which occurred Aug. 17 following a game at Lakewood Stadium, left a 12-year-old paralyzed from the chest down, previously reported.

The teen charged in the shooting was not identified because he is a juvenile. He was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault, Atlanta police spokesman James White said Wednesday morning.

I pray that this victim can someday walk again and lead a normal life. Dayum!!!!

My mom is always talking about it after seeing it on National Geographic channel. Who knew elephants had a sanctuary of all places, in Tennessee?
And it is NOT open to visitors.   Fascinating!!!

The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee exists to provide captive elephants with individualized care, the companionship of a herd, and the opportunity to live out their lives in a safe haven dedicated to their well-being, and to raise public awareness of the complex needs of elephants in captivity, and the crisis facing elephants in the wild.

Would-be sheriff creates a campaign video featuring some of his most embarrassing moments to remove the sting before his opponents

Craig Stivender might not be the brightest crayon the box given that he thought it was a bright idea to include an old picture of himself in blackface in his promotional video running for Sheriff.

“I want to tell you some things that politicians would try to hide, things that my opponents may try to use to tarnish my integrity,” he says in the video.

Stivender also admitted he has anger issues and has done “things” he regrets.

After many years, Morris Brown College has been approved as an institute of higher learning from the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (GNPEC), which authorizes and regulates the operations of in-state nonpublic and out-of-state postsecondary colleges and schools operating or offering instruction in Georgia.

“This is a gigantic first step in our road to full accreditation,” said Dr. Kevin James, interim president of Morris Brown College. “We are on a positive path to resurrecting this historic black college back to prominence and creating an environment in which students will receive an education that is held in high regard. We are now in search of significant donors to pour into our institution now that we have this momentum.”

Bishop Reginald T. Jackson, chairman of the Board of Trustees, and bishop of the 6th Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church says the state’s approval is a clear sign that Morris Brown College is headed in the right direction and gaining momentum for its future.
