Fried chicken dinner fundraiser for school computers

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A local chef is cooking up her famous fried chicken dinners Friday to raise money to buy computers for students.

Chef Natalie Young who owns Eat and Old Soul restaurants will host a pop-up dinner with the proceeds going to buy Chromebooks.

With distance learning this year, access to resources is more important than ever.

“It really can make the difference between them graduating from high school on time or them not being able to be successful at all. When you have the challenge where you don’t have the tech, the discouragement can set in for a young person,” said Renisha O’Donnell, Core program director.

The fundraiser will be held at Eat which is located at 707 E. Carson Avenue. Anyone can purchase the fried chicken dinners from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. There are varying sizes of dinners which range from $12 to $27... Read More

Muskegon-area woman gets tatted at 103 years old

HOLTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Dorothy Jo Pollack isn’t the average 103-year-old woman.

She sunbathes inside her brown picket fence, shops with her granddaughter and recently got tatted.

“When I showed it to my grandson, he said, ‘I can’t believe you did that!'” Pollack said.

Pollack said she never imagined she’d get a tattoo at 103. She garnered national attention after CNN shared her story.

Of all the ink she could get on her body, Pollack chose a frog. It’s her favorite animal.

What’s Driving You Crazy? – An 85-year-old concrete history lesson

LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – A rock hard history lesson from 85 years ago. Ready? Let’s go . . .

“Centennial Bowling!”

Remember a couple of weeks ago when we learned from Tony Illia of the Nevada Dept of Transportation that in these super hot summer months, crews on the Centennial Bowl project only pour concrete at night, even tossing bags of ice into the ready mix to keep it from becoming brittle by “curing” too quickly?

Here’s your history lesson: Tony says the concrete poured to make the Hoover Dam back in the 1930s is still curing today! It’s obviously too late for 85 year old ice, so forward-thinking engineers of our grandparents’ generation came up with a solution that’s being used here in the 21st century: “They actually run pipes of chilled water through the structure to help it cure as slowly as possible.”
