Minnesota HS Asks Girls To Cover Their Butts While Wearing Leggings

Minnesota's Minnetonka High School principal David Adney has declared war on leggings!

Adney is asking girls to "cover their butts" because the skintight trend is distracting to fellow students with raging hormones.

The principal explained:

"It's a fashion trend that has existed for a while, but has accelerated. Not all leggings are created equal. With Lyrca and Spandex, the definition can be severe, front and back."

From the emails Adney sent out, he's only received two negative responses, which said what he was trying to do is "highly sexist."

However, the principal cracked down on teenage boys for wearing muscle shirts and enforced a no-baseball-hat policy several months ago, so that's fair right?

Woman Finds $6,500 Ring In Blinged-Out Goodwill Jeans

Jackpot!

A woman in Minnesota found more than she bargained for at a Coon Rapids Goodwill store.

Deb Thompson bought a pair of bedazzled jeans for $3.99, but when she got home she found a $6,500 diamond ring in the pocket!

Being the good samaritan that she is, Deb has teamed up with Goodwill to find the ring's rightful owner! She even wrote a lost and found story on the store's Facebook page.

Aww that's nice!

The sad part is, not all acts of kindness get taken seriously! Since the story aired on the local news Wednesday, the thrift store's received several emails from different people claiming the ring belongs to them!

That's just greedy! We hope the REAL owner comes forward soon, or maybe Thompson can just keep the sparkler!

Finders keepers!

Check out the entire story in the clip (above)!

WANTED: A Good University Home For Bob Dylan Memorabilia Collection

Filed under: Music MinuteSuper Seniors

bob dylan memorabilia for sale

If he doesn't find any takers, maybe he can just give it all back to Bob! ha!

70-year-old Mel Prussack is on the search for a university in the United States to be a permanent home for his Bob Dylan memorabilia collection.

Mel is hoping that a university will take his collection and put in on display, so people will get to enjoy his collection after he dies.

So far he spoke with Princeton University, but they turned him down, and now he's speaking with the University of Minnesota, which is Bob's home state.

Here's what Prussack had to say about his efforts to get his collection put up on display:

"(It's important) people know that I have these things and I want to put it somewhere. I want to try and educate the young people to understand why Dylan was such an important figure, because our whole times are going to be studied through his work."

For those of you out there who are hardcore Dylan fans, here are some of the key items in his collection:

- Keychian Dylan threw into crowd at William Paterson University show in '97

- Guitar Picks

- Promo jar of "Traveling Wilburys Twist Peanut Butter and Jelly"

- Drumsticks signed by Bob's percussionist Mickey Jones

Good luck finding a home for Dylan's stuff, Mel! It'll all work out eventually!
