Virginia NAACP sues school board that restored Confederate names
Quick Glance: Virginia NAACP Files Lawsuit Against School Board for Confederate Names Restoration
  • A new legal action aims to stop the reversion of Mountain View High School in western Virginia to its previous name, Stonewall Jackson High School. The decision by the Shenandoah County School Board in May to reinstate the appellation of the Confederate general to the school has sparked this lawsuit.

  • Virginia's NAACP chapter, which has initiated the lawsuit, asserts that the recent renaming of several schools to honor Confederate figures like Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee has created an environment deemed 'unlawful and discriminatory' towards Black students.

  • The reinstatement of the names of Confederate generals Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and Turner Ashby at two local schools, which were removed almost four years ago during a comprehensive review of U.S. monuments and historic sites, has stirred controversy.

  • The federal lawsuit aims to retain the present titles of Mountain View High School and Honey Run Elementary School and prevent the introduction of any prejudiced names or symbols moving forward.

Quick Glance: Former Neighbor Challenges Alito's Account of Upside-Down U.S. Flag

Dornoch pulls off upset win at the Belmont Stakes
Quick Glance: Dornoch Emerges Victorious at Belmont Stakes, Surpassing Derby and Preakness Winners
  • Dornoch emerged as the winner at the Belmont Stakes on Saturday evening, held for the first time this year in Saratoga Springs, located 200 miles north of Belmont Park.

  • Trained by Danny Gargan, Dornoch made a late break on the final turn to take the lead in the 10-horse field with Luis Saez as the jockey, outperforming the Kentucky Derby champion Mystik Dan and the Preakness Stakes champion Seize The Grey, who were top contenders for this year's Triple Crown finale, along with the race favorite Sierra Leone, finishing third.

  • This year marked the inaugural occasion in the 156-year history of the Belmont Stakes where the race was held at a different track.

  • Despite the presence of the two champions at the starting line on Saturday, the favored contender for the Belmont Stakes was the 3-year-old Sierra Leone, who was involved in the Derby's intense photo finish and the event was considered a challenge for champions due to altered track conditions.

Quick Glance: Why Costco Hot Dog Prices Have Remained Steady Since the 1980s
  • Costco doesn’t plan to raise the price of its beloved hot dogs anytime soon.

  • The $1.50 price tag for the hot dog and soda combo has remained steady since the 1980s, despite inflation suggesting it should be closer to $4.40.

  • Costco recently had to raise prices for some food court staples but kept the hot dog price stable and even reduced prices of certain items.

  • The combination of affordable hot dogs and customer loyalty has created a cult following for Costco, based on a nearly mythical story about pricing and a strong connection to the corporate culture.
