The Great Clothing Circle of Life - 06/13/14

When I was in middle school big bell bottom jeans were in style.  I mean, you just had to have a pair of bell bottom jeans.  (extra points if they had stenciled flowers or hearts on them).  I remember my mother telling me "Those were in style when I was your age.  They were ridiculous then and they are ridiculous now.  Why on earth would they bring those back?"

My how the tables have turned.  Recently when I was downtown on Broadway for a night out, my friend and I saw a group of college girls walk by with high waisted, cut-off Levi's.  (and yes, they were stonewashed)  We both looked at each other in disbelief, wondering why would someone want to bring that style back?  Well, I guess the high waisted jean shorts are back in a big way.  Funny how styles come and go.  I might as well keep some of my older clothes for when they come back around in the next decade or two.   Ha.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Take this job and -- well, you know the rest. A Michigan Powerball winner quit her job on the spot after learning she had won a more than $310 million jackpot. Julie Leach says her job as a supervisor at a fiberglass factory was nasty and dirty. Leach says she was having a "really bad night" working the third shift, when she took her lunch break at McDonald's. She checked the five numbers in the drive-thru line. She's opted for a lump-sum payout of about 140 mil after taxes. Leach says she hopes to build her own little community of houses for her children and grandkids.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- High school senior John Krahn is big -- even for a football player. At 7 feet and 440 pounds, the Riverside, California, teenager could be the biggest guy ever to play high school football. Even NFL players would have to look up to him. But big John would like to be a little less big. He was wants to lose some weight to increase his speed and mobility. His coach at Martin Luther King High is Kevin Corridan. Corridan recognizes John needs some work to be able to play big-time college ball. But Corridan says his giant offensive lineman is "a kid worth taking a chance on."


TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Call it a marijuana mystery. Border Patrol agents have seized nearly 1,400 pounds of weed found near the fence that runs along the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona. Federal officials say the bundles of pot were somehow launched over the fence. In the past, drug smugglers have used catapults and even air-cannons to send contraband sailing over the border. In the latest incident, agents recovered about 80 large bundles of the illegal weed.


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Police could be looking for a healthy bandit. A truckload of tofu and organic drinks has been stolen. Police in Portland, Oregon, have recovered the missing delivery truck, but the cargo was gone. According to authorities, the truck was swiped from a parking lot, while the driver was inside a grocery store. Police say a tip led them to the truck in another part of town, but not the tofu or drinks.
