Canton parks & rec. will start renting park shelters next weekend.  Suspended last year due to the pandemic, you can reserve your spot online or in person at the canton garden Center office.

Earlier this week during “Undisputed” on Fox Sports Shannon Sharpe had an on-air cold call to Atlanta Falcon’s Wide receiver Julio Jones. On the show, it was unclear if Jones even realized he was on the air. Blindsided, the Atlanta Falcons could be looking for a public apology. There are now legal questions about putting Jones on the air without his knowledge or consent and could risk NFL cooperation with Fox in the future.

FYI:

  • “Undisputed” is produced in California, which is a “two-party consent” state.
  • That means that Jones and Sharpe would both have to give “knowledge and consent” that the call was being recorded or aired.
  • If it came to it, Sharpe could face a misdemeanor charge that carries a $2,000 fine and/or a year in jail.
  • That, of course, all assumes that Jones would want to press charges, which is doubtful.

Last night was the finale of “The Masked Singer” with Chameleon, Black Swan, and Piglet as the final three. Piglet was victorious, and was reveled to be Nick Lachey. Chameleon was rapper Wiz Khalifa and Black Swan grammy winner JoJo.

While taking a walk on the beach beach in Hastings, England, some casual walkers made a significant discovery: packages sealed in waterproof bags containing  2,116 pounds of cocaine. The street value could be as much $113-million. Hopefully there was a reward…from authorities!

Summer is coming and looking good means you’ve got to find a way to shed that “quarantine 15,” or 20, or 30.

Here are some tips:

  • Put yourself at a calorie deficit, meaning you burning more than you’re taking in.
  • Eat plenty of protein – think 1 gram for every pound of body weight.
  • Eat vegetables, especially those high in fiber.
  • Resistance training is your best friend when you’re burning fat.
  • Sleep…and get plenty of it…with 7-8 hours being optimal.
