Head for the Black Hills: tales of Crazy Horse and Custer in South Dakota

The carving of the Crazy Horse statue is a story in itself but then insurgent tales and mountain sculptures have helped shape this midwest state

It takes a few seconds for the statue of Crazy Horse to come into focus, which is surprising given that it’s being carved out of a 641ft-high stone outcrop. From a distance it looks like just another rocky peak silhouetted against the cloudless South Dakota sky. But get closer and its form and detail become apparent: an unyielding face, a raised arm, a pointing finger, all recreated on a colossal scale.

Blac Chyna Gets Emotional In Beverly Hills While On An Outing With Friends: ‘They Can Say Whatever They Want About Me’

Blac Chyna was recently spotted on a night out with her pals in Beverly Hills last Friday. She seemed a bit overemotional, as Daily Mail puts it, while she was leaving a steakhouse with her pals.

She was with a female friend, and she told her the following: ‘I want to get my message out. Go out and vote. It’s midterms.’

She also continued and said ‘I’m doing good and my kids are doing very well.’

Daily Mail reports that Chyna went on: ‘I keep quiet, I keep silent. Do you want to know why? Look up your religion. Get more informed. They say whatever they want about me. I look at it and laugh. You know why? Because it’s all false.’

Just recently Chyna discussed other subjects as well such as new music.

‘I’ve been working on some music. I never been the type of person to really coast. I just want to test all my boundaries to see if I can kind of do it,’ she told DailyMailTV.

‘My music is kind of fire. I have a little bit of singing, a little bit of rapping and I have a little love song.’

She also stated a little while ago that she would definitely consider getting back together with Rob Kardashian, but her baby daddy did not address the issue, at least not in public.

Speaking of Rob, Chyna’s mom, Tokyo Toni begged him via social media to let her see Dream Kardashian in a really emotional video.

This Housewife is now a wife!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer married her boyfriend David C. Meyer at a private beach club in Hawaii on Saturday, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

“This is my next chapter,” says Grammer, 50. “I’m so excited to start our life together.”

Grammer and Meyer wed in a Hawaiian-inspired outdoor ceremony as Grammer’s fellow Housewives Teddi Mellencamp, Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Rinna looked on.

Kyle Richards served as a bridesmaid, and both of Grammer’s children were part of the nuptials. (Their dad is Grammer’s ex-husband Kelsey Grammer.)

Daughter Mason, 16, was a bridesmaid and son Jude, 14, walked his mom down the aisle, a moment Grammer called “very special.”

The Bravo star began dating Meyer, a lawyer and father of two sons, in 2016 and got engaged the following year.

“I love the way he loves me,” she says. “It means so much to me. And I know we will honor our commitment to each other for the rest of our lives.”

SEVEN HILLS, Ohio – Residents in Seven Hills may soon have a brand new Meijer to shop at, following the preliminary approval of the store by the city’s Planning Commission last week.

City officials hope to open the store on Broadview Road, at the same location where Kmart now sits.

According to city officials, the proposed store’s location could still be up in the air as it depends on if Kmart relinquishes their lease rights for the property.

Below is a rendering of the store if the city gets approval for the Kmart location:

Launching in one of the redesigned bungalows, the collection will feature ready-to-wear pieces and accessories designed by SIL Shop designers from Paris to San Antonio, Tex.
“For more than a century, The Beverly Hills Hotel has remained a symbol of Hollywood’s Golden Age and Los Angeles’ celebrated lifestyle, with a signature aesthetic that has become recognized around the world,” said Edward Mady, the hotel’s regional director and general manager. “Its iconic design elements serve as inspiration for artists and designers, and this inaugural capsule collection with The SIL is an example of the influence this beloved property continues to have in the fashion world.”

Takashi Murakami, Virgil Abloh and ‘America Too’ at Gagosian Beverly Hills

The line was half a block long, not an unusual occurrence at Gagosian Beverly Hills, but certainly one that hasn’t happened since its Oscar Week opening featuring Damien Hirst back in February. Wednesday night’s opening of “America Too,” the third collaboration between Takashi Murakami and Virgil Abloh, drew a small army of fans, most of them young and several of them famous.
Travis Scott, Kourtney Kardashian, Usher, Kid Cudi, Orlando Bloom and Luka Sabbat were spotted in the crowd, which was sizable inside, though nothing compared with the orderly throng outside. They were let in a handful at a time, making it possible for as many fans to take in the event as possible.
Many of the artworks themselves, in a variety of media, were also oversize, including the giant “Material Too,” a take on the American flag, that hung in the center of the North Gallery. It was probably also the biggest number of iPhones seen at an art opening, as young fans excitedly Instagrammed themselves in front of the colorful works, including Murakami’s iconic rainbow flower, onto which the signature arrows of Abloh’s Off-White label were overlaid, or “Arrows and Flower Neon Sign” and a rotating piece that blinked like

Lauryn Hill is adding some extra money to her bank account after her cousin was found guilty of swindling her out of $ 65,000. The Jasmine Brand reports that Hill loaned the money to her cousin, Gerald Hill with the condition that he would have to pay 10% interest if the money wasn’t given back in three months. Recently a judge found him guilty and now he must pay his cousin back.

When Lauryn realized that her cousin didn’t intend to pay her back she decided to take him to court. The two never signed a contract, but the judge decided to hold him accountable and ruled in Lauryn’s favor.

Lauryn recently made headlines after kicking Nas and Santigold off the tour and showing up late to shows. After getting sick, Lauryn decided to cancel several concerts until next year. We hope fans are able to get the show they paid for in the future.

LOCAL NEWS: Willoughby Hills Mayor Gets Restraining Order Following City Council Members Removal

WILLOUGHBY HILLS, Ohio – The city of Willoughby Hills filed a temporary restraining order against Mayor Robert Weger on Friday in an attempt to keep the mayor from “any further attempts to interfere with the lawful operations of Willoughby Hills City Council and Government.”

Earlier this week, Weger removed six council members from their positions, citing “gross misconduct, malfeasance, misfeasance and nonfeasance in office.”

RELATED: Willoughby Hills mayor removes six members from city council

The city released the following statement: 

“It is the official position of the City of Willoughby Hills, as stated in its complaint against Mayor Weger, that his attempted removal and replacement of Council is illegal, unlawful, and null and void, ab initio:

“’Allowing Weger to oust elected officials contrary to law and without due process is fundamentally inconsistent with the democratic process, and designed to create a government run through a dictatorship rather than through the proper legislative, executive and judicial process.’”

The statement from the city also said that after Weger removed the council members from their positions, he had the locks changed on City Hall and locked the clerk out of her office.

The following council members were removed from office: Council President Nancy Fellows, David Fiebig, Laura Lenz, Janet Majka, Laura Pizmoht and John Plecnik. The only council member who was not removed was Christopher Hallum.

Weger said he knew that removing six council members may have been viewed as extreme, but it was something he saw as necessary.

The mayor released the following statement earlier this week:

“This may be a drastic action, but the behavior of these six council members requires I take action in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of our citizens and business in Willoughby Hills. In the past year, these council members have adopted at least 11 ordinances which are contrary to law, five of which have been declared void and illegal by a common pleas judge. Two others have been found to be probable violations of the collective bargaining law by the State Employment Relations Board and unfair labor practices against city employees which will cost our taxpayers dearly.”
