People love dollar stores like "Dollar General" because of the perception that most of the products are priced at just a buck. Of course, that isn't true, but now Dollar General has taken a cue from their rival "The Dollar Tree" and began selling cigarettes at discount prices. And like The Dollar Tree, cigarette sales have boosted Dollar Generals profits by almost 4 and a half percent in the last year.
According to their overall sales figures, tobacco, snacks and candy account for 76% of Dollar General's total net sales.
So, if you're lookin for cheap smokes, try the dollar stores.
It's no secret that singer Demi Lovato has struggled with a drug problem. She spent time in rehab in both 2010 and 2011. But now she's admitted to the public the extent of her drug use. She says she was so addicted to cocaine, she couldn't go an hour without it. She smuggled it on planes and snorted it right in her first class seat while the other passengers were sleeping. She did whatever else was necessary to make sure she always had it within reach, even when she was living with a sober person sneaking to the bathroom for a bump every 30 minutes to an hour.
Lovato now claims she's "clean & sober" and ready to move on with her life including her singing career and judge on the TV talent show, "The X Factor".
All we can say is Good Luck Demi.
This is the kind of story that scares the sh** out of parents of student athletes nationwide. The scumbag pervert pictured above is nationally recognized youth golf coach, Andrew Nisbet from Livermore, California, a small burb outside San Fransisco. Now before you click out of this story cause the guy's from California, you should know that he's coached young golfers right here in Michigan.
In fact, his youth golf program has been so successful, he's taken it to kids in Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, California of course, and Michigan.
Nisbet has already admitted guilt in two of the counts, so investigators have good reason to believe there will be many more to come. According to Livermore police officer Steve Goard, Nisbet had a very elaborate scheme to lure the children in. He would host parties at his house where he served the kids alcohol, showed them pornographic images and even bought them expensive golf equipment and gave them rides to and from practice. He would then screen the kids to find the ones most likely to have sex with him and not talk about it afterward.
If your children received golf instruction from Andrew Nisbet, you're encouraged to come forward with any information that may help in the case.
