World War II Veteran, 95, and Korean War Veteran, 85, Walk During Their High School Graduation
Sun May 26 17:40:11 EDT 2019

A pair of military veterans who never got the chance to graduate fulfilled their dreams of walking across the stage in a cap and gown Saturday, decades after they each left high school.

Joe Perricone, 95, and Bill William Arnold Craddock, 85, served in World War II and the Korean War, respectively, meaning they each missed out on the opportunity to graduate with their senior classes.

Perricone was educated at Hillsborough High School in Tampa, Florida, and even received a diploma, but was drafted in 1943 before he had the chance to walk.

“The draft board said, you go and serve your country and be a big boy,” he told CBS 12.

His grandson, Judge Thomas Palermo, knew Perricone’s dream, and arranged for him to be part of the ceremony at Saturday’s graduation, which included a special moment honoring Perricone for his service.

“It means a lot to us that someone we love very much will finally live out his dream,” Palermo told the outlet.

“We would like to welcome a very special guest. Joe Perricone is a member of the Hillsborough class of 1943,” Principal Gary Brady said before roaring applause and cheers were heard, as seen in a video shared by WFLA.

“He was honorably discharged in 1946. He has been married to his wife for 72 years. He will be receiving his long overdue and well-earned diploma with the class of 2019, 76 years after his own graduation day,” Brady added of Perricone, who was joined on stage by his daughter Dolores and grandson.

Craddock, meanwhile, left school in Tennessee to join the Air Force at 16 years old, meaning he didn’t get the chance to graduate with the class of 1953.

On Saturday, he was finally able to walk across the stage, with the 2019 graduating class at Volunteer High School.

“I’m tickled pink that I went through this to get this,” he told WJHL. “Seeing all these people and they have made me feel good.”

Craddock also made sure to share some sage wisdom with his fellow graduates: “I would tell that class to study hard and be good. Learn all they can and get the best education they can get,” he said, according to the outlet.

Giant Rock 'the Size of a Building' Is Blocking a Highway in Colorado 'Indefinitely'
Sun May 26 17:30:43 EDT 2019

A “significant” rock fall that sent a boulder the size of a building tumbling onto the highway continues to block traffic in Colorado.

The southwest city of Ouray issued a travel alert Friday, warning drivers that Highway 145 would be closed “indefinitely” after a massive slide sent boulders into the road.

“The slide consisting of dirt, rock and two huge boulders which have destroyed the full width of the highway pavement, leaving a trench approximately eight feet deep across both lanes,” the city wrote on social media. “The road is impassable at this time.”

The city noted it would have to call in a geotechnical team, as well as special equipment and supplies, to blast the boulder into smaller pieces in order to move it off the road.

According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, the boulder sitting on the highway weighs an estimated 2.3 million lbs., while the one that blew out an eight-foot trench is 8.5 million lbs.

Photos of the massive rocks shared to Facebook show how the boulder dwarfs a worker standing in front of it, and reveals the impact of the fall destroyed the highway surrounding it, breaking much of the pavement into pieces.

The Colorado Department of Transportation offered a follow-up to the situation Saturday, writing that an investigation by a geotechnical crew found that a team would need to be airlifted to clear any loose rock from the ridgeline in order to prevent similar falls.

The department said that once its mitigation and scaling work is complete, a crew could begin drilling and blasting the boulders, though a timeline was unclear.

Miley Cyrus Raps 'I Love You Nicki, but I Listen to Cardi' in New Song 'Cattitude'
Sun May 26 16:50:02 EDT 2019

Miley Cyrus debuted three new songs over the weekend, one of which contained a not-so-subtle reference to Cardi B and Nicki Minaj’s feud.

On Saturday, the 26-year-old singer performed at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend festival, giving her fans a first look at some new music, which will likely be featured on her upcoming seventh studio album.

On one of the tracks, a sassy rap song reportedly titled “Cattitude,” Cyrus briefly mentions the two rappers, saying, “I love you Nicki, but I listen to Cardi.”

Making light of the eyebrow-raising lyrics online, Cyrus went on to caption numerous social media posts from her performance with different variations on the line.

“I love you Selena but I listen to Demi….” she captioned one clip, tagging pals — and fellow Disney alums — Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.

Cyrus went on to reference both herself and good pal Ariana Grande in another post, writing, “I love you me but I listen to Ari.”

In addition to performing two additional new songs, reportedly called “Mother’s Daughter” and “Dream,” Cyrus played plenty fan favorites, including “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart,” “Party in the U.S.A.” and “We Can’t Stop” — which featured a special guest performance by British singer Charli XCX.

The beef between Cardi and Nicki, which kicked into high gear following their now-infamous New York Fashion Week brawl in September, came to a halt the following month, with Minaj tweeting, “Let’s focus on positive things only from here on out.”

Cardi responded, posting a screenshot of Minaj’s tweet on Instagram and writing: ”@Nickiminaj alright then! Let’s keep it positive and keep it pushing!”

So far neither rapper has publicly responded to Cyrus’ lyrics.

Cyrus, who’s been counting down to a mystery release on social media for quite some time now, went on to release a new teaser on Sunday.

In the clip, Cyrus appears to rub food over herself, while the words “SHE IS COMING” flash on the screen.

Cyrus’ website is also counting down to the release, which is now slated to drop on May 31. (A previous countdown listed May 30 as the big day).

Earlier this month, Cyrus revealed that her latest album had been completed and she’d already played the record for staffers at streaming service iHeartRadio.

“They f—ing flipped and so will you,” Cyrus promised.

This will be the first record the singer has released since tying the knot with Liam Hemsworth. The couple, who met on the set of The Last Song in 2008, got married in an intimate ceremony at their Franklin, Tennessee, home last December.

Cyrus’ last album was 2017’s Younger Now, led by the single, “Malibu.” She also provided vocals to producer Mark Ronson’s tune, “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart,” which was released in November 2018.

During a January interview on iHeartRadio’s Most Requested Live with Romeo, Cyrus revealed that Ronson collaborated with her on “a bunch of songs” for the upcoming album as well.

One of those songs is a tune called “Bad Karma,” the name of which she spilled during that chat.

“I was kind of just in this creative space,” Cyrus said. “Sometimes the visuals of what I can imagine it looking like can even inspire me in the vocal booth. And so you can put those messages you want to bring, what it’s really about to you, into it. I’m such a visual person, that when I record a vocal take — this is really creepy, this is a girl thing — I imagine what lipstick I’ll be wearing in the music video… like ‘Bad Karma’ — ooh, I shouldn’t have said that! Well, there you go.”
