Food Deserts

I have seen confusion on what food deserts are. I would like to be straightforward on what food deserts are and correct definitions for other deserts.

Great Storyline For A Team From Lubbock --- And You Can Thank Knight

Posted 04-08-2019 at 04:30 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

In many ways, regardless of how this latest NCAA men's basketball national championship turns out, Lubbock has Bob Knight to thank.

Oh, no, Coach Knight didn't directly win a national title with the Texas Tech Red Raiders, but he hired someone for his staff who can handle college students in a different sort of way. Chris Beard was just born to coach. That's right; Bob Knight hired Chris Beard and he ended up as assistant head coach. Never mind the other things...
