Chris Randolph is a local boy and recently moved back to his hometown to be closer to his momma's home cookin. His career has taken him to Lexington, Frankfort, Kansas City, Chicago and Tampa Bay.
Chris lives with his beautiful wife Anne, who has been threatening to leave him for 24 years, but Chris keeps up on his honeydo list and is a master at begging! They have 4 wonderful children Taylor, Conner, Casey and finally the daughter Grace, who is not allowed to leave the house without the express written consent of her father. All of the boys are in bands and perform locally to packed houses of screaming girls.
Besides being an avid motorcycle rider, Chris is a couch potato. You can usually bet he's watching reruns of Dexter, Dual Survivor, or EVERY SINGLE SHOW on the Food Network.
The High Line, one of New York's newest tourist attractions, may have brought a different kind of visitor: a cockroach that can withstand harsh winter cold and never seen before in the U.S.
Rutgers University insect biologists Jessica Ware and Dominic Evangelista said the species Periplaneta japonica is well documented in Asia but was never confirmed in the United States until now. The scientists, whose findings were published in the Journal of Economic Entomology, say that it is too soon to predict the impact but that there is probably little cause for concern.
"Because this species is very similar to cockroach species that already exist in the urban environment," Evangelista said, "they likely will compete with each other for space and for food."
That competition, Ware said, will likely keep the population low, "because more time and energy spent competing means less time and energy to devote to reproduction."
Michael Scharf, a professor of urban entomology at Purdue University, said the discovery is something to monitor.
"To be truly invasive, a species has to move in and take over and out-compete a native species," he said. "There's no evidence of that, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be concerned about it."
A strange twist in this already sad story...
Now that he's gone, it seems as everyone wants a piece of Paul Walker and the car he died in, including two accused
thieves who allegedly made off with part of the charred Porsche.
The accused thieves allegedly took the T-top from the roof of
the Porsche as it was being towed to an impound yard late Saturday, grabbing the
part from the tow truck when it was stopped at a red light. But the tow truck
driver saw it happen and helped police track them down.
The T-top was found at 18-year-old Jameson
Witty's house and he was arrested. His partner in crime is out of state, but
he's been contacted by authorities and is expected to surrender soon. The pair
will face charges of felony grand theft and tampering with evidence.
