Ann Arborites probably remember Martavious Odoms, Vincent Smith and Denard Robinson for their fast footwork in the Big House. But these days the former football stars are developing their green thumbs.
Odoms created the #EATING Project in 2012 to establish a community garden in his and Smith’s hometown of Pahokee, Fla., and he and Smith are currently preparing to start a new garden back in southeast Michigan. Odoms says the idea came from “just wanting to get back to people.”
Two friends at a North Texas high school vowed to make up for their classmates’ cruel prank by awarding the Grand Prairie High School homecoming crown to one of their best friends.
Lillian Skinner, 17, is described by friends as “just an amazing girl” and “one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.”
But Skinner’s sweet and innocent nature also made her the target of a recent prank in which some unnamed girls told her she had been nominated for the homecoming court alongside her longtime best friends, Alvarez and Naomi Martinez, also a GPHS senior.
After learning of the prank, Alvarez and Martinez, who have been friends with Skinner since 7th grade choir, hatched a plan to pass their crown to Skinner should either of them be named homecoming queen.
KTXS-TV reported the man was in a white truck at a Chick-fil-A in Abilene on Monday night when he gave the money to the restaurant.

Trevino waited for help to arrive.
“You’re looking at the clouds,” he said. “You’re looking at whatever to try to keep you focused.”
Thinking about his wife and children gave Trevino strength. An encounter with a porpoise kept him going.
“He kind of bumped me, and I kind of rubbed him, and he kind of changed my attitude right there,” Trevino said. “He kind of … gives you hope.”
Trevino held on until crew members from an oil tanker heard his cries for help. The Coast Guard later lifted him to safety.
