Kiss Goodnight

Comes from Connecticut:

"A 57-year-old Connecticut teacher is facing charges after police said he took a 17-year-old student out to dinner and tried to kiss her on the lips. Police said George Perduta, a former math teacher at Shelton High School, turned himself in on Tuesday. Police said he and the female student went out to dinner in April and he asked her about her relationship status, which made her uncomfortable. The girl told police that after dinner, Perduta tried to kiss her. Perduta is charged with disorderly conduct and was released on $500 bond. Shelton school officials say he resigned in May (AP)."

"A Connecticut high school football coach has apologized after more than a dozen players burned their hands crawling on a field's scorching artificial turf earlier this week. Parents say coach T.J. Cavaliere, also known as "Coach Cav," told the team to crawl across the turf Monday at Stratford High School when temperatures soared above 90 degrees. In a letter to parents, Cavaliere apologized and said the exercise was in response to poor behavior during a scrimmage on Friday. He says he wasn't aware the turf could cause blisters and that he learned a "valuable lesson."
