Host team's fans lacked manners
On the night of Nov. 23, many of my family members and friends headed to Byrnes for the playoff game. Our waitress at a nice little barbecue joint warned us of the reception we would receive.
I was initially greeted by a Byrnes cheerleader asking if I wanted a program of the "winning" team. With 6:38 remaining and the score 14-0, the announcer said, "All you Northwestern fans leaving early have a safe trip." Following the game, a male Byrnes fan offered to fight my sister while his child asked him to stop. I never knew why, due to his broken "English" explanation.
It's like having a fine house with no knowledge of how to entertain. We just don't treat our guest like that around here. Great year, Trojans!
Never miss a local story.
Get bio-diesel fuel from fast-food fat
I am, by profession, a fast-food restaurant manager. I saw an article about waste management being proposed by the York County Council. For the last 10 years, I have been reading about bio-diesel fuels. These fuels are made from burnt fry grease used at fast-food restaurants. In Gastonia, an enterprising employee of the school system not only proposed, but built a bio-diesel plant in a school bus garage.
Now, I understand your question, "Why does this matter to me?" The answer: Fast-food restaurants like McDonalds, KFC and Hardees almost give away their waste fry grease. Ladies, I wouldn't trust your makeup, because that is the No. 1 use of fast- food grease.
Actually, your white-tablecloth restaurants are even bigger users of fry fat grease. Mothers and fathers, do you love your schoolage children? Then demand bio-diesel be used in your child's school bus. Why? Because your child's bus is polluting his or her lungs. With bio-diesel, that is a drastically reduced problem. Not only will your child breathe less harmful pollutants riding in a bio-diesel bus, but bio-diesel also is a lot cheaper than diesel gas.
