The school year is not ending well for Shiloh Elementary School, just south of Selma, Alabama. After a month-long investigation2, local police and DEA agents have arrested principal, Aaron McKinley, after reportedly witnessing him selling Oxycodone and Hydrocodone at the school. McKinley faces a more severe sentence, because the drug sales allegedly took place on school property. Some of police also say, McKinley knowingly bought and persisted the ** in vehicle. The up and coming young principal had a good reputation, and the committee is reeling. The county school board released a statement saying we were both shocked and saddened about the allegations.

Consumers are feeling more a bit about the economy according to the latest numbers from the Thomson Reuters University of Michigan Index. NPR's ** reports consumers' sentiment  is at a four-year high.
The main Index rose nearly 3 points, that's a big change, it beat analysts5 expectations, Richard Curtain is ** director, he says cheaper gas prices are helping6 but the key for consumers is job growth. 
They expect the economy to continue to improve and to produce more jobs. 
Curtain is cautiously optimistic. 
The issue is whether consumers' optimism really has outpaced what the performance of the economy will be. 
He says consumer confidence rose nearly as high twice in the past two years, but the economy couldn't sustain  those positive vibes. Both times high gas prices and weak job growth reversed the gains. **, NPR News, Washington.
