A Texas man whose next-door neighbor helped raise him in the absence of a father is sharing his story with the world. Now grown up with kids of his own, he is welcoming this beloved man into a brand-new role as an honorary grandfather.
“My story truly shows that a successful Black American man truly inspired and educated a little white kid next door,” Cody Shugart told The Epoch Times via email. “He did not have to be a part of my life, he chose to and I am thankful to God every day that he chose to help me.”
Cody and his wife, Aubrie Shugart, share four children: Colt Griffin, who was stillborn in 2014, Bob Wayne, 3, William West, 2, and Miles Jefferson, 4 months. Together, the couple runs the oldest dance studio, called the Aubrie Shugart School of Dancing, in Victoria, Texas.
Cody is also the corporate sales manager for a tractor dealership called Scherer Kubota.
“My mother, Yvett Shugart, raised me and my brother, Adam, by herself,” said Cody. A court reporter, Yvett moved with her children to Victoria when Cody was only 2 years old. That’s where they met “Mr. Chip.”
There is much more.
Coby's children treat Mr. Chip like a grandfather.
Red States: Full Body Cam Video from Two of the Minneapolis Police Officers Undercuts Charges Filed By Minnesota AG Keith Ellison I felt from the beginning that Ellison overcharged in this case and this video is going to make it extremely difficult for Ellison to prevail. It also should have been released before the emotional reaction to the cell phone video that stirred the passions of the country and the mobs. What appears to bee clear is that Floyd was not compliant with the arresting officers. When you tie that to his drugged condition it just does not make for a second degree murder conviction.
Red States: Based on a book by investigative journalist Lee Smith , The Plot Against the President is a quality piece of storytelling, that moves fluidly and builds tension like any good suspense thriller. But it is not fiction; it was an intentional, and diabolical machination that occurred right underneath our noses. The documentary lays out “Russiagate” and all the actors: legacy media, government officials, and the Obama administration, who weaved this web of deceit. The film explains in extremely cogent fashion the hows and whys of the set up of General Michael Flynn, and how Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA22), former National Security Council official Kash Patel, and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH4) unraveled and exposed the Deep State deception that trapped an innocent man, in an attempted coup de’état to unseat President Donald J. Trump. Jordan said in the documentary, “The only thing we got wrong, is that it was worse than we thought.” The most villainous evil was done to General Michael Fl
Michael Rubin: On his first day in office, President Biden canceled permits for the Keystone XL pipeline. Environmentalists and anti-fossil fuel activists should not have applauded his move. After all, Canada will not stop extracting oil from the tar sands of northern Alberta. Instead, it will simply export oil over existing pipelines or to the Pacific Ocean, where the damage from a potential spill would be harder to address. Biden’s cancellation cost jobs and pushes Canada toward greater economic cooperation with China. It also shakes confidence in U.S. business. Who would invest in the country if any future administration can simply renege on deals with the stroke of a pen? Especially, that is, when the investments involved here reach into the billions of dollars? Biden’s move was both political theater and an indulgence of his liberal base. But his hypocrisy was stunning even for a politician who has spent a half-century in Washington. Consider that while the Biden administration
