‘Rocket City Rednecks’ crew denied entry to Student Launch Initiative


TONEY, Alabama -Student Launch Initiative, NASA’s engineering and science challenge for college, high school and middle-school students.
Cast and crew members of the hit television series “Rocket City Rednecks” showed up at NASA’s Student Launch Initiative on Sunday but were reportedly turned away at the gate by NASA officials.
Travis Taylor, or the “ringleader” on the show, and his crew showed up, apparently unannounced, at Bragg Farms on Sunday with a large rocket strapped onto the bed of a beat-up, old, white Ford pickup. They wanted to launch the rocket alongside the students participating in the competition.
Travis Taylor, one of the "Rocket City Rednecks," films a scene with the Rednecks' rocket Sunday outside the front gate at Bragg Farms, during NASA's Student Launch Initiative.
Though NASA officials wouldn’t comment on the incident, Taylor said during filming of a scene outside the launch area that NASA told his crew launching their rocket would not be safe.

Taylor also said the crew had another location in mind, but it was not clear if they launched a rocket in the Huntsville area Sunday.
Blake Krause, 18, said Taylor and the crew asked them a few questions before moving onto a description of the giant rocket the Rednecks hoped to launch.
Krause said he had some doubts about whether the rocket visible in the back of the pickup truck, which was much larger than those of the students in the competition, would launch.
“He said it had two end motors, which are about 16 times as powerful as the ones we use,” Krause said. “And those were just the first stage. It had two motors for the second stage.”

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
