We Take Our Snowballs Seriously

Baltimore’s favorite summer treat once meant opportunity for all

You may think you know what a snowball is. That conical treatment of chunky ice where all of the flavor drops out of the bottom of a paper triangle? Nope, that’s a snow cone.

Man drops case against Seattle mayor

Seattle, WA - Delvonn Heckard, the man who accused Seattle Mayor Ed Murray of paying him for sex when he was underage, has dropped his lawsuit against Murray. Heckard's attorney, Lincoln Beauregard, filed a motion to withdraw the complaint on June 13, and it was granted by a King County Superior Court. Beauregard filed the suit on Heckard's behalf in April. The suit was dismissed “without prejudice,” which means it can be filed again and Beauregard said his client would definitely do so after he completes his drug rehab program next year.
