BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
An Ohio high school student was met with a cruel punishment for missing football practice, and now eight coaches are on leave as a potential lawsuit takes shape.
The student’s father said that his son, who is kosher, was forced to eat an entire pepperoni pizza while his team watched, and was told that the other players would have to complete extra drills if he didn’t partake in the punishment. His spot on the team was even threatened.
The boy’s Hebrew Israeli faith prohibits pork from the diets of its members.
“I felt very upset, I felt disrespected,” the high school junior’s father said. “Makes you question if they are doing their job. Obviously, I feel the culture is broken.”

High prices and low supply are finally taking some of the heat out of the housing market.
Even with interest rates falling slightly, mortgage application volume fell 4% last week from the previous week. It fell to the lowest level since February 2020.
“Tight housing inventory, obstacles to a faster rate of new construction, and rapidly rising home prices continues to hold back purchase activity,” said Joel Kan, an MBA economist. “The government purchase index declined to its lowest level in over a year and has now decreased year over year for five straight weeks.”
Mortgage rates are holding steady to start this holiday-shortened work week, but economic data out later this week could change that. The all-important monthly employment report for May is coming Friday, and depending on the outcome, rates could swing in either direction.

AROUND THE GLOBE
A herd of wild elephants are approaching a major city in China after escaping from a nature reserve nearly 300 miles away.
The 15 elephants have left a trail of destruction along their journey over the last several months. While they have crossed highways and trampled fields of crops, they have mostly stayed out of inhabited areas. That is until now.
Residents in the city of Kunming in China’s Yunnan province were bracing for the unruly elephants as they raced closer and closer toward the city this week. The elephants threaten to destroy parts of the city and could potentially injure residents as well.
