When parents in Van Alstyne, Texas dropped off their children at the Luv and Learning Daycare Center they never expected their kids to be medicated for nap time. Daycare owner Kimberly Lane was accused of mixing milk with over-the-counter antihistamines. Lane called the concoction “special milk” and used it on the kids, who ranged in age from 20 months to four years old, to get them to fall asleep. Lt. Tim Barnes of the Van Alstyne Police Department claims it is still unclear as to how long this action had been taking place.
The police department entered the facility on Wednesday morning with a search warrant and arrested the daycare owner after having received complaints from other employees at the daycare on Tuesday. It is not believed that Lane had intended harm to the children, but she will be charged with 16 counts of child endangerment because of the damage that may have ensued from such a reckless decision.
Lane was imprisoned in Grayson County Jail on Thursday. A conviction could result in a 2 year maximum in jail. She may or may not also face the penalty of $10,000 for each count against her.

America’s funniest gal from the 1950s comes back to life in Rick Sparks’ “I Love Lucy” Live on Stage. Set up as a live studio recording of the renowned show, the audience gets to experience a “filming” of two episodes in the famous Desilu Studios. The show will even include a television studio host, taking everyone back to the times of Lucy’s rise to stardom. If that’s not enough, the play also has the Tropicana Nightclub where Ricky Ricardo performs as part of an orchestra. The numbers are sure to put the audience in a good, dancing mood, ready to move. To make the black and white series come more to life, the show will have musical commercials, vintage-style.
The original series premiered in 1951 and ran until 1957, but was continued for three more years in a spin off show. Centered on husband and wife Ricky and Lucy, the show followed the disastrous attempts of a housewife working on everyday tasks and trying to break into the entertainment industry like her husband. But the show did more than this, as it defied the social norms of the time, with the couple being the first interracial couple on television. You may not have known this, but Latinos and Caucasian Americans did not often marry in those times (at least not openly). Even going against the current in 1950s America, they still managed to steal the audience’s hearts.
Sparks’ show is meant as homage to the black and white classic, as it would be impossible to replicate the original cast’s artistry. The Emmy Award winning television series returns as a musical with the beloved characters of Lucy, Ricky, Ethel, and Fred. Premiering in Los Angeles on October 1 at the Greenway Court Theater, America will once again fall in love with that infectious foursome that captured hearts across the nation with their antics.
Although the show commemorates the original’s 60th anniversary, it is sure to be a performance that can be appreciated and enjoyed by all generations. The show’s cast— Sirena Irwin (Lucy Ricardo), Bill Mendieta (Ricky Ricardo), Bill Chott (Fred Mertz), and Lisa Joffrey (Ethel Mertz)—is sure to do the characters justice and bring smiles to everyone’s faces.
