A proud native of Puerto Rico, Cora has seen the way the island has been treated in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

And after announcing that he would go, Cora told reporters Thursday that he might well change his mind.I’d like to offer our deeply admired manager a piece of free advice: Don’t go. Skip it.

Charlotte led by just 90-87 after the Spurs' Derrick White's 3-pointer with 5:39 to play but five straight points by Bismack Biyombo keyed an 8-0 run that expanded the Hornets' lead to 98-87 with 4:15 remaining. San Antonio hit just one of its six shots in that stretch and had no answer for the Hornets in the stretch run.

It will be interesting.” Photos at the event show a spread of food wrapped in McDonald’s and Wendy’s packaging. According to a video taken by White House correspondent for Yahoo News Hunter Walker, Trump says there are hamburgers … [Read more...] about Trump is serving the Clemson football team Wendy’s and McDonald’s in the White House.
