Steelers Draft Pick Najee Harris Hosts Draft Party at Homeless Shelter Where He Used to Live


A few hours before the start of the 2021 NFL draft, former Alabama star Najee Harris visited a homeless shelter, Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP), as they hosted a draft watch party in his honor.

It was a homecoming of sorts for the Steelers' No. 24 pick, as Harris, his four siblings and his parents lived in that shelter for several years growing up.

"Just to see him as a grown man with this kind of opportunity for him today and to know that he lived in this shelter among many other places their family had to move around and lives as a homeless man just speaks to [the thought that] anything is possible," Kathleen Sullivan, executive director of the Greater Richmond Interfaith Program, told ABC 7 News.

Returning brought back a lot of stirring memories for Harris and his family. He was in middle school when they stayed at GRIP before his family moved to Antioch.

😁 ☀️something I found to be crude but inspiring 🥳🤪

'Not an easy transition': Inside Trump's unconventional first months out of office


But almost immediately, an assortment of other advisers were invited by Trump to oversee construction of his new political operation -- one he hoped would guard his rank as de facto leader of the Republican Party and lend support to allies in local, state and federal races who could advance his agenda. Among them were Trump campaign lawyer Justin Clark and attorney Alex Cannon, former Trump campaign managers Bill Stepien and Brad Parscale, senior adviser Jason Miller, former White House social media director Dan Scavino and longtime allies Corey Lewandowski and Dave Bossie.

Occasionally, the 45th President has invited candidates to meet with him at Mar-a-Lago who he has no intention of endorsing. One Trump aide said he enjoys the lavish praise and frequently crows to guests at the club about the weight his support carries. He has similarly hosted incumbent Republicans who have echoed his false claims about the January 6 insurrection and are already widely expected to receive his endorsement.

"He hates being off the A block," said a person close to Trump, using a term that refers to the lead segment in a cable news program. "He's really thinking of running again in 2024 just to get back to that."

The person close to Trump's operation said that while his TV consumption has declined since he left office -- a byproduct of him no longer being surrounded by televisions in the Oval Office or aboard Air Force One -- he still reads The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post each morning and regularly marks up articles about his achievements or policies to send to aides and advisers.

Once a prolific over-sharer on social media, with frequent video posts about everything from the child tax credit to workforce campaigns and hundreds of photographs of herself, Ivanka Trump, like her dad, has spent the past 100 days in relative online silence. Kushner, meanwhile, has popped in and out of his father-in-law's orbit as he devotes much of his time to writing a book about his tenure inside the West Wing and preserving the Middle East peace treaties he helped negotiate during the Trump presidency.

I'm running a laptop off my cell phone hot spot!

How cool is that?
Our phone service just switched over to T-Mobile. We now have hot spots on our phones that we can tap into. I’m actually teleworking on a work laptop from outside a medical appointment (routine) for my daughter.

This is amazing at least to me anyway. 😁

I .....AM....a funny Tweet 😆


The new religion of masks. Today my be the rapture. 😇

Today there will be new CDC guidelines on masks outside. I didn’t know there were any other than “when in doubt wear it” and whatever the owners say.

Everyone who was disregarding mask rules are no going to be quoting chapter and verse. You watch.

But but but the CDC says.....

Two questions- weird credit and Canadian email

So my wife Nd I jointly applied for a credit card from Midas. It’s really for the car my daughter will have when she starts driving next year. They sent a code by text and then we had to call. Midas wanted us to record a video for security reasons and then send it to them. Face recognition I guess. We decided against the card. Was anyone heard of this? It was Midas nationwide so.... ???

A friend’s employer was recently bought by a Canadian company. Is his email going to end with .eh now? Okay that was a joke. Canadian Ehmail. 😆

Christiansburg VA's hilarious friendly business sign war 😆👍🤠

Christiansburg businesses battle-it-out in friendly sign war, captures world’s attention


The Christiansburg Sign War started as a friendly business sign competition. The first two businesses to fire the first shots were a music and shoe store that inspired others to get into the game.

Now, more than 13,000 people on Facebook are sitting on the edge of their seats to see what businesses will post next.

The war began when Jim Bohon, a guitar and drum teacher at Bridge Kaldro Music, wanted to start a little friendly sign competition with neighbor Super Shoes. The sign read, “Hey Super Shoes! Wanna start a sign war?!”

“I think that the last 14 months have been so isolating for people, I think to have something light-hearted and fun while they’re still safely at home on their computers, their tablets, their phones that they’re able to see what’s happening between these businesses,” Woodyard said. “To see the lively banter has really made people excited about what’s happening.”
