  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

DUI the latest

CINCINNATI – Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman, already suspended for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, was arrested early yesterday on a drunken driving charge, police said.

Thurman, with one game left on a four-game NFL suspension, registered 0.18 percent on a blood-alcohol test, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent, police said. He was arrested just after 3 a.m., police said.

Police Capt. Dan Gerard said an officer working near a DUI checkpoint on the city’s east side saw Thurman drive a sport utility vehicle across a double yellow line and stopped him. Thurman was with two other Bengals, but police declined to release their identities.

However, rookie receiver Reggie McNeal told The Associated Press that he and receiver Chris Henry were in the vehicle with Thurman. He declined to go into detail about what happened. Neither player was charged.

“Just a misunderstanding,” McNeal said, as he left Paul Brown Stadium yesterday afternoon.

Thurman was taken to the checkpoint, being operated by police and the State Highway Patrol, and given a breath test, Gerard said.

Gerard said Thurman was released to a companion who was sober to drive him home. A court appearance was scheduled for Oct. 2, the day he is eligible to return to the team.

If convicted, Thurman could get a tougher sentence because of the high blood-alcohol level, patrol Sgt. Jon Payer said. The average sentence for a first-time offender in Ohio is three days in jail or an alcohol-education program and a $500 fine, he said.

A second-round draft pick out of Georgia last year, Thurman led the Bengals in tackles and had five interceptions, helping Cincinnati reach the playoffs with its first winning record since 1990.
