Kingston Springs Elementary

NBC continues to travel around the country renovating America’s schools on their hit show School Pride. This week, the team headed to Tennessee to save Kingston Springs Elementary.

Teen Shot After Sporting Sagging Shorts

sagging shorts styleOne commonality parents have across the nation is how much they detest when their sons walk out of the house with their pants half way down their thighs, belted and exposing their boxer shorts (or briefs).

Described as classless and trashy, yet trendy and hip, many schools have strict dress codes that prohibit the style.

But in Tennessee, 45-year-old Kenneth Bonds, decided to take matters into his own hands, giving an almost too dangerous literal meaning to the phrase “if looks could kill.”
