Coach encourages positive fans to pack the coliseum
The men’s basketball coach spoke with students to encourage a full crowd for upcoming games, but said he wants chanting against opponents to stop.

Men’s head basketball coach Neil Dougherty said Tuesday that fans should support TCU victories by chanting for the Frogs, rather than belittling opponents.

Dougherty said he appreciated the massive fan support for TCU during the game against the Louisville Cardinals Feb. 17, but disapproved when fans chanted that the Cardinals were “overrated.”

Constitution guarantees firearm freedom

Gun control has long been a subject of debate in this country. Whether private citizens should be allowed to own firearms under the Second Amendment is a question that our judicial system struggles with, but I believe the answer is simple if we look at the Constitution that founded this nation and preserved its freedoms.

(Black history intelligence quotient)

Black History Month began with historian Carter G. Woodson, who early in the last century came up with the idea for a “Negro History Week,” which he envisioned as a celebration of black history and achievement, as well as a time for education.
Did you know ...

Black History Month was created from Negro History Week, which was launched by Carter Woodson in 1926. Woodson, who was born to former slaves, began his high school education at age 20. He noticed his history books lacked any recognition of black Americans’ accomplishments and focused on their inferior jobs. Woodson founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History in 1915 in order to bring attention to blacks’ accomplishments.
