  • Manziel is first freshman Heisman Trophy winner


    NEW YORK (AP) — Johnny Football just got himself a way cooler nickname: Johnny Heisman.

    Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, taking college football's top individual prize Saturday night after a record-breaking debut.

    Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o finished a distant second and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein was third in the voting. In a unique Heisman race, with two nontraditional candidates, Manziel broke through the class barrier and kept Te'o from becoming the first purely defensive player to win the award.

    Manziel drew 474 first-place votes and 2,029 points from the panel of media members and former winners.

    "I have been dreaming about this since I was a kid," he said during his acceptance speech after hugging his mom, dad and kid sister.

  • Hanukkah festivities begin with candle lighting

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Jews around the world ushered in the eight-day Hanukkah festival Saturday evening, lighting the first candles of ceremonial lamps that symbolize triumph over oppression.

    In Israel, families gathered after sundown for the lighting, eating traditional snacks of potato pancakes and doughnuts and exchanging gifts.

    Local officials lit candles set up in public places, while families displayed the nine-candle lamps, called menorahs, in their windows or in special windproof glass boxes outside.

    Hanukkah, also known as the festival of lights, commemorates the Jewish uprising in the second century B.C. against the Greek-Syrian kingdom, which had tried to impose its culture on Jews and adorn the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem with statues of Greek gods.

    The holiday lasts eight days because according to tradition, when the Jews rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem, a single vial of oil, enough for one day, burned miraculously for eight.

  • Paying homage to the ‘Lizard King’

    The 1960s were a turbulent time full of war protests and countercultures. In addition, that decade also produced many unforgettable rock front men that questioned not only the American government, but also society.
    Jim Morrison of The Doors is perhaps the most controversial of these bold singers. In honor of Morrison’s birthday on Dec. 8, 1943, it is essential to pay respects to the man that defined an entire generation with his stage antics and lyrics.
    From the beginning of his career, Morrison was able to command audiences with his ability turn his poetry into stunning epics.
    “The Doors” formed in 1965, and by the time 1970 came along, a combination of touring, recording and Morrison’s constant drug and alcohol abuse threatened to destroy the Los Angeles band.
    Following the widely unsuccessful release of their fourth studio album “The Soft Parade,” which relied heavily on horns and over-produced tracks, “The Doors” found themselves at the end of their career. Released Feb. 1 1970, “Morrison Hotel” breathed life back into the band, while warning that their best was yet to come.
    Morrison somehow found a way to come out of his drug-induced haze to write some of the best lyrics of his career.
