Tallahassse high school crowns gay couple prom king and queen

TALLAHASSEE -- Leon high-schoolers crowned a gay couple prom king and queen last month, a first in the school’s 185-year-old history.

To the two girls — Lindsey Creel and Brie Grimes, seniors who have been dating for three years — winning prom king and queen was not about the titles, but about helping others and raising awareness about LGBTQ issues.

FSU's Nobel-winning chemistry professor Kroto dies (co-discover of "buckyballs")

Tallahassee has lost one of its brightest and most brilliant thinkers.

Florida State’s Nobel Prize-winning chemistry professor Sir Harold "Harry" Kroto died Saturday. He was 76 and had been battling a neuro-degenerative disease.

The world famous Kroto, who was born in England, earned the Nobel Prize in 1996 for his co-discovery of "buckyballs," a short term for a new form of carbon molecule called Buckminster-fullerenes. The molecule’s soccer ball-like shape resembled one of Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes, thus the name buckyball.

The bio-chemist was recruited from England in 2004 to join the faculty at FSU as a high-profile Francis Eppes professor. The university gave him a $200,000 annual salary and hundreds of thousands of dollars to start a laboratory in the campus's then-new chemistry building. The Eppes professorship provided him $40,000 in extra money each year for research purposes in the field of bionanotechnology.
