Ray Rice wins appeal, suspension vacated immediately

NEW YORK (AP/PIX11) — The NFL player’s union says Ray Rice has won his appeal, and that his suspension will be vacated immediately.

The appeal was heard earlier this month by former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones.

The Baltimore Ravens player was suspended indefinitely and released by the team in September after video of him knocking his then-fiance Janay Palmer with a single punch inside a New Jersey hotel elevator was leaked.

Rice was released by the Ravens and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the suspension indefinite shortly after the video was made public.

JEEZY and Community Development/The Promise Center to host the 1st Annual Family Turkey Giveaway

Yesterday, recording artist JEEZY partnered with the Central Georgia Partnership for Individual and Community Development/The Promise Center to host the 1st Annual Family Turkey Giveaway.

For over 10 years he has visited his hometown of Macon, GA to lead holiday philanthropic activities. Yesterday’s participants were treated to local performances as well as encouraging words from Jeezy. He gave away over 250 turkeys to needy families.

“I love Bibb county, it feels like a family reunion,” Jenkins said. “I have been doing this for twelve years now and I always want to give back to the community”

Jeezy was presented a key to Macon-Bibb and a proclamation from Macon-Bibb County Commissioner Virgil Watkins Jr. recognizing him for his longtime service to the community.

“Today is StreetDreamz day in Macon,” Watkins said. “We wanted to honor Jenkins for all he does for the community.”
