  • A principal at Dr. Martha Mead Elementary School is getting praise after she was photographed helping serve breakfast to her students. KSAT reported that Principal Annette Lopez stepped into action when she was told that the cafeteria would be short staffed Thursday.

  • Less than a week after becoming the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has received an official coat of arms approved by Queen Elizabeth II. >> Read more trending news According to Kensington Palace, the Duchess of Sussex is represented in the emblem by a songbird, with its wings elevated as if it is flying. The bird also has an open beak, with three quills that represent communication and the power of words. The blue background represents the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California and two golden rays across the shield also represent the Sunshine State, Kensington Palace said.  Beneath the shield on the grass is a collection of golden poppies, California’s state flower. It also includes wintersweet, which grows on the grounds of Kensington Palace. In the emblem, the arms of a married woman are shown with those of her husband, a representation of their union side by side in the same shield.  Markle also picked those flowers to be featured in her wedding veil. >>Read: Meghan Markle selects Givenchy dress for royal wedding The coat of arms was designed by the College of Arms in London. Thomas Woodcock, the Garter of Arms who helped craft the design, said Markle was active in the design process.  “The Duchess of Sussex took a great interest in the design. Good heraldic design is nearly always simple and the Arms of The Duchess of Sussex stand well beside the historic beauty of the quartered British Royal Arms,” said Woodcock in the statement from Kensington Palace. “Heraldry as a means of identification has flourished in Europe for almost nine hundred years and is associated with both individual people and great corporate bodies such as Cities, Universities and for instance the Livery Companies in the City of London.” Markle also represented her California roots in her royal wedding invitations, which were printed with American ink. Now that Meghan has received her coat of arms, she and Harry can get their own “conjugal coat of arms,” which will likely be officially unveiled in a couple years, PEOPLE reports. William and Kate’s conjugal coat of arms debuted in September 2013, just over two years after their wedding in April 2011.
  • Luke Bryan announced the official dates for the 10th annual Farm Tour 2018, with six stops in cities from Ohio to Florida. This year, the “Sunrise Sunburn Sunset” country superstar will kick off the tour September 27 in Irwin, Ohio.  “I can’t believe we’ve been doing this 10 years!” Bryan said in a statement on his website. “Our goal was to bring big-city production concerts into these small towns across the U.S. giving those communities the opportunity to attend shows that would never come their way.” Tickets for the “Bayer Presents Luke Bryan Farm Tour 2018” go on sale June 6.

Over 50 scholarships have been given out to date, according to Bryan’s announcement.  Bryan, a Georgia native, told Billboard that the Farm Tour is a very personal experience for him.  “My whole existence, and the reason that I’m in country music, was based on me being in an agricultural family,” Bryan told Billboard. “It taught me everything I know about life, and my work ethic. It has shaped who I am. I took all those values, and I brought them to Nashville, and used that hard work to get my career off the ground. I still go back home and talk to my dad, and talk about how the business is going. It’s still very present, and very important in my life.” Luke Bryan 2018 Farm Tour dates: Sept. 27: Irwin, Ohio – Springfork Farms Sept. 28: Pesotum, Illinois – Atkins Farm Sept. 29: Boone, Iowa – Ziel Farm Oct. 4: Archer, Florida – Whitehurst Cattle Company Oct. 5: North Augusta, South Carolina – Misty Morning Farms Oct. 6: Ringgold, Georgia – Doug Yates Farms

The shelter looked like a big house — it could have been a mansion.

Around the same time, his father had a heart attack. “My migraines started in the eighth grade because of all of the stress I was dealing with at the time. There was a lot of pressure to get into high school and succeed,” Jenkins told WHYY. “And then my dad had a heart attack. In the summer of the eighth grade, it got really bad.

More than $11,000 has been raised of its $25,000 goal.

  • While the Trump Administration has hailed economic and job gains over the past year and a half, the price of gasoline has jumped sharply in recent months for consumers and businesses, adding to the cost of everything from a daily commute, to a summer vacation, and the amount of money companies pay to ship their products around the country. And it’s starting to used by Democrats on Capitol Hill to take aim at the White House. “Gas prices have risen more than 25% since Trump took office,” said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR). “Overall world crude oil prices have increased over 75 percent in the past year,” said Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), as Democrats wrote President Donald Trump a letter earlier this week, asking him to do something about the rising cost of gasoline . Americans are paying the price at the pump for Trump’s chaotic approach to foreign policy. He hasn’t pressured Gulf leaders to lift their cap on oil output, or pursued diplomatic solutions in Yemen and Syria. The result? $3.89 a gallon #GasPrices pic.twitter.com/CTaW97cez9 — Senator Bob Menendez (@SenatorMenendez) May 23, 2018 Those numbers at the pump aren’t unusual for the Washington, D.C. area as just the ohter day, this reporter filled up on the way to work, and ha the pump shut off before the tank was full, when the total hit the $50 credit card limit at that station for a single transaction. Figures released in recent weeks by the Trump Administration clearly show the increase, with gas prices up on average by over 52 cents a gallon from the same time a year ago, at an average of $2.92 per gallon. The $2.92 per gallon is the highest average price at the pump on Memorial Day in four years – in 2014, gas was at an average of $3.67 per gallon, as Republicans blamed the energy policies of the Obama Administration, arguing for more oil exploration in the United States. Gas prices generally trended down the last few years, leading President Trump to proclaim where they stood on July Fourth of last year. Gas prices are the lowest in the U.S. in over ten years! I would like to see them go even lower. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 4, 2017 But since that tweet on July Fourth of last year, the price of gasoline has only gone up, and federal energy experts expect even more in the months ahead. “Relatively higher crude oil spot prices, higher gasoline demand, and falling gasoline inventories are all factors contributing to higher gasoline prices,” the Energy Information Administration reported last week. The EIA predicted an average of $2.90 per gallon for gasoline this summer.
