TOPICALITY
NEWSTEEN SUSPENDED FOR ASKING MISS AMERICA TO PROM
YORK, Pa. –  A Pennsylvania high school student is in hot water for asking Miss America to prom during a question and answer session at school.
Eighteen-year-old Patrick Farves said he received three days of in-school suspension Thursday because he asked Nina Davuluri to prom.
The senior at Central York High School stood up and popped the prom question, then walked to the stage with a plastic flower. Miss America just laughed and the students cheered.
Farves is quotes ad saying; “She just kind of laughed and I gave her the little flower I got,” Farves told Fox43.com.
“And I went up and I gave her the flower and asked her if I could get a selfie with her. And she was like maybe later, and I never got the selfie,” Farves said.
School officials heard about Farves’ plan in advance and warned him not to do it. He has apologized for disrupting the event.
The school says students are disciplined for breaking rules and this incident is no different. The district told Fox43.com that it is not a practice to discipline a student for asking someone to a dance, but administrators work to “ensure rules are followed within our schools.”
Farves say’s that he still hasn’t settled on a date. “For prom I’m probably just, I don’t know, I might go alone,” Farves told Fox43.com.

OHIO COUPLE MARRIED 70 YEARS DIE 15 HOURS APART
Nashport, Ohio – An Ohio couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart.
Helen Felumlee (FEHL’-uhm-lee) of Nashport in central Ohio died April 12. She was 92. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning.
The couple’s children say the two met as teenagers and had been inseparable since then, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than sleeping one night apart, the Zanesville Times Recorder reported.
Relatives told the Zanesville Times Recorder that after a few years of dating the young couple snuck off to a court house in Kentucky to elope with $5 in their pocket, enough to pay the $2 marriage fee.
The pair were married on Feb. 20, 1944, two days shy of Kenneth’s 21st birthday meaning he was too young to marry in Ohio.
The two went on to have eight children with Kenneth working for a railroad company and as a mechanic before becoming a mail carrier. He was also an active member in their church, and willing to lend a hand whenever it was needed.
One daughter said the two were deeply in love to the end. When their children grew up and had families of their own, they began traveling the country, visiting nearly all 50 states by bus.
“He didn’t want to fly anywhere because you couldn’t see anything as you were going,” Jim said.
When Helen became confined to a hospital bed, Kenneth took it hard, Cody told the Zanesville Times Recorder.
“He would just reach out and grab her hand, but he would keep his head down because he couldn’t stand to see her hurting,” Cody told the paper.
Cody said her father began to fade about 12 hours after her mother died and told them that he didn’t want to leave her by herself.
“We knew when one went, the other was going to go,” Cody told the newspaper. “We wanted them to go together and they did,” she said.
“He was ready,” Cody said. “He just didn’t want to leave her here by herself.” The couple have 23 grandchildren and 43 great grandchildren.

THINGS THAT YOU NOW KNOW
Now You KnowThe Most Important Commitment
40% of Americans ages 25 to 55 who are in committed relationships say honesty about finances is more important than honesty about fidelity. And still, they lie — or fudge the truth. 30% admit they have withheld information from their spouse or partner regarding spending on discretionary items, such as apparel, accessories, electronics and entertainment. Perhaps the biggest lie of all is the amount of money we make. Men are nearly twice as likely as women to say that they have withheld information from their spouse or partner regarding their salary (11% vs. 6%). That’s the word from a Lawyers.com Couples & Money Survey that was conducted by Harris. While nearly all Americans in committed relationships (91%) agreed it is important to discuss their partner’s financial history before marriage, 26% admit they tend to avoid talking about finances. We know we need to do better when it comes to managing our money. According to the Lawyers.com survey, if we could go back in time, these are the changes we would make:
•      64% would put more money into savings.
•      49% would spend money more responsibly.
•      46% would put more money into retirement accounts.
•      36% would put more money into investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
•      21% would discuss financial goals and expectations earlier in their relationship.
•      10% would be more honest with their spouse or partner about their spending.

FACTS ABOUT LEFTIES
Between 10 percent and 12 percent of the world population is left-handed, and scientists have no idea why! It could be genetic. It could due to damage in utero. It could be an edge for winning fistfights. And while there are no obvious differences between those who are right-handed and those who are left-handed, we do know that lefties tend to excel at visual and spatial tasks and seem to be overrepresented among geniuses, reports LiveScience.com. What makes southpaws special?
Here are ten facts:
•      Just as humans favor one hand over the other, animals also favor one paw over another. But unlike humans, which paw is favored is split about 50-50.
•      Although there is likely a genetic component involved in handedness, environment is also important. For example, researchers have found that identical twins often have different dominant hands.
•      Studies have found that southpaws have higher rates of dyslexia, schizophrenia and autoimmune diseases, such as allergies and lupus.
•      Males are overrepresented among lefties, so some scientists theorize that exposure to testosterone in the womb may affect handedness.
•      Many geniuses and leaders are lefties. Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin were all southpaws, as well as eight U.S. presidents: James A. Garfield, Herbert Hoover, Harry S Truman, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Fully 25 percent of the Apollo astronauts were left-handed.
•      Lefties tend to excel in fields that require excellent visual-spatial abilities, including architecture and graphic design, but are underrepresented in math and science.
•      Being left-handed can be an advantage in a fistfight when a surprise left hook can be a decided benefit. As many as 45 percent of expert fencers and tennis champions are lefties.
•      Lefties may have a more balanced view of their bodies. Right-handed people are more sensitive to their right side; for example, their right arm is typically stronger and larger. Left-handed people don’t have a similar bias; for example, their arms are equally strong.
•      Mothers who are over 40 at the time of a child’s birth are 128 percent more likely to have a left-handed baby than a woman in her 20s.
•      August 13 is Left-Handers Day, which celebrates left-handedness and raises awareness of the difficulties and frustrations lefties endure in a right-handed world.
