Including one that raged through  seven homes in Fuller Park in September. One resident said he doesn’t know where he would be today without the quick actions of his dog and the Red Cross. “This is Mister Rello. Without him I would not be here.” This dude is strong. And intuitive. And while some owners say that, Coy Freeman means it about his seven-year-old American Bulldog. It was the early morning of September 30. “I was asleep on the couch and my dog Rello, he came...
    Spear warned that vaccine mandates "will have vast unintended consequences." "The U.S. is already facing unprecedented supply chain disruptions and delays due to many factors, including significant labor shortages, production shutdowns, a shortage of raw materials, and pent-up consumer demand," Spear continued, adding, "Our data shows that a vaccine mandate may very well further cripple the supply chain throughout the country by forcing up to 13% of drivers to leave the industry entirely." Trucking group Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association also went after the administration over vaccine mandates. The organization's spokeswoman, Norita Taylor, called the jab requirement an example of "how unnecessary government mandates can force experienced owner-operators and independent truckers out of business" and warned that the mandate would "send safe drivers off the road," the AP said. Canadian truckers aren't happy about it either. In a story from the Toronto Star headlined, "A trucking nightmare: Supply chain horrors feared as thousands of unvaccinated drivers won't be allowed to cross U.S.-Canada border," Canadian Trucking Alliance President Stephen Laskowski said, "This is making a bad situation a lot worse....

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Bullets went flying in the Bronx on Thursday evening, and a 28-year-old mother was caught in the crossfire. New surveillance video shows the moment Tatiana Guzman was shot in the leg near 225th Street and Broadway as she pushed her 2-year-old daughter in a stroller.

    A Manhattan doorman at an upscale apartment building on the Upper East Side is suing a former resident's estate, claiming the man promised him a third of his savings in thanks for the doorman's care over 28 years.  According to a lawsuit filed Wednesday, Jose Rafael Padilla, the morning doorman at Midtown East’s tony 14 Sutton Place, said he was promised a portion of James Clayton Larmett's estate after caring for him for 28 years. The allocation was not made in Larmett's will, however.   The 62-year-old met Larmett, 69, and his wife, Linda, after helping them move into the building in 1993, and claims the three 'became close' throughout the last three decades.  Padilla often cared for Larmett's pet cats, 'which had been the prime object of (Larmett’s) affection,' the suit states. The longtime Manhattan doorman alleges that Larmett loved his pets so much that he 'provided for pet focused charities in his will.'  Jose Rafael Padilla, the morning doorman at Midtown East’s tony 14 Sutton Place (pictured) says he was promised a portion of James Larmett's estate after caring for...
    Among the more stunning visits by Southern Resident orcas to the Salish Sea this week was a sunset stroll through Haro Strait, near Lime Kiln Lighthouse. FRIDAY HARBOR, Washington—The summer of 2021 continued a trend of decreasing presence by Southern Resident orcas in the Salish Sea, one that began in 2016 and has seemingly deepened every year since. Other than a handful of brief visits—including one by all three of the population’s pods that seemed to herald the imminent death of an iconic male, K21 Cappuccino, which reduced their numbers to 73 whales—the so-called resident whales have not appeared at all in their traditional summertime waters. But for the past two weeks or so, they appear to be making up for lost time. After appearing on Sept. 1 off the western side of San Juan Island, all three pods—Js, Ks, and Ls—have been steadily prowling the waters of the Salish Sea as they have in the past, ranging up mostly to the Strait of Georgia and hanging out off of the mouth of the Fraser River near Vancouver, British Columbia....
    Get more in-depth, daily coverage of Chicago politics at The Daily Line. CHICAGO — Greater Englewood is one of several communities throughout Chicago carved up into numerous wards and represented by multiple aldermen. While some of those aldermen agree with a prominent community group that wants ward boundaries to be redrawn so they more closely mirror neighborhood lines, others argue it is beneficial to Greater Englewood to be represented by the six aldermen who currently each claim a piece of the neighborhood.   Chicago is set in the coming weeks to launch full-throttle into the decennial task of ward remapping, shining a spotlight on how aldermen think about ward boundaries. And virtually all the aldermen who represent a portion of Greater Englewood, which includes Englewood and West Englewood, will have to contend with shrinking populations in their wards as the Census results show the city’s African American population on the whole has declined.  But despite the city’s waning African American population and swelling Latino and Asian American populations, leaders of the Aldermanic Black Caucus have said they intend to retain all 18 majority-Black wards on the map.  Related: Asian American leaders prep legal, political push for City Council representation in next remap  Greater...

    Capcom has been giving us glimpses of Resident Evil Village over the past few months through short demos across platforms. Those demos were only available for 24 hours at most, though, and that made it tough for a lot of people with busy schedules to play them. Thankfully, the developer is changing things up for the final extended demo it’s releasing for the game before its launch on May 7th: The official Resident Evil Twitter account has announced that RE Village’s final 60-minute demo will be playable for eight days. It was only supposed to be up for 24 hours like the other demos before it, but Capcom says it’s extending the its availability period due to players’ feedback. Capcom will still make the demo playable starting on May 1st at 8PM Eastern time in North America, but instead of removing it after 24 hours, the developer will give fans access to it until May 9th, 8PM Eastern. That means the demo will be up for two days after RE Village is released, giving players the chance to test it...
    An opening party for a bar in rural Illinois led to an outbreak of coronavirus cases, a nursing home resident being hospitalized and a school closure, a new report finds. At least 46 people who attended the party, or are close contacts of those who did, tested positive for COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed on Monday.  Two of the secondary cases were among student athletes, which led the school to cancel in-person classes for two weeks due to teachers not being able to work because they had to isolate. The report is a cautionary tale that serves to warn businesses to keep enforcing mask and social distancing rules as states begin relaxing restrictions.    A bar in rural Illinois held an opening party indoors, where attendees often didn't wear masks or practice social distancing (file image) Within two weeks, 26 people who attended the event and three staff members tested positive for COVID-19, along with 17 close contacts - which included two student athletes and a hospitalized long-term care facility resident - for a...
    (CBS4) – Registration for COVID-19 vaccinations has now opened up to what is called category 1B.4 in Colorado. This includes the following: – People age 50 and older. – Front-line essential workers. – People with high risk conditions. – Continuation of operations for state government and continuity of local government. Thea Willey, of Erie, is now ready for her turn to book an appointment. But after working for weeks to get one for her husband Mark, she knows it’s not easy. Using Facebook’s VaccineFinder she locates appointments, but… “Once you get to those individual systems those appointments aren’t really there,” she said. That’s what she found trying to sign up her husband, who has been eligible before now in the over 60 group. He said his wife was, “Still was able to see those appointments, but was unable to book those appointments.” He says locations were unwilling to give out first appointments without being able to book a second one. CBS4 asked Facebook company spokesman Robert Traynham about where the information comes from. “We work with state and local officials and...
    A California nursing home accused of 'dumping' residents onto the streets to take in more lucrative COVID-19 patients has agreed to pay $275,000 in penalties and will install a series of 'sweeping changes and practices to remedy allegedly unlawful discharge protocols and treatment deficiencies.'  Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer announced in a press release Monday that his office reached the settlement with the Lakeview Terrace Skilled Nursing Facility in Los Angeles, coming just two years after another settlement that the two parties had come to.    The city claimed in its suit, filed last summer, that the 99-bed facility was trying to secure higher reimbursement rates - upward of$600 a day more - from COVID-19 patients and would therefore 'churn residents by any means possible, including by unlawfully dumping them on the streets or discharging them to another facility that may not be prepared to meet their particular needs, without regard for the patients' health and safety.' Family members were hardly notified of the changes and new residents at Lakeview Terrace didn't immediately have beds, the suit reads, adding that many were forced...
    A New Jersey nursing home resident who tested positive for COVID-19 on her 105th birthday has now beaten the virus, crediting her resilience to her ritual of consuming nine gin-soaked raisins a day and 'no junk food'. Lucia DeClerck, who lives at the Mystic Meadows nursing home in Little Egg Harbor, has survived three husbands, two world wars, and now two pandemics. The great-great grandmother, who was two-year-old when the Spanish flu outbreak hit, has now recovered from the coronavirus more than a century later, having tested positive for the disease on January 25.  DeClerck's diagnosis came the day after she received her second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, Mystic Meadows administrator Michael Neiman told the New York Times.  Despite being considered a high-risk patient on account of her age, Neiman said DeClerck didn't exhibit any serious symptoms of the virus and was back in her room within two weeks, clutching her rosary beads and wearing her signature knitted hat and sunglasses. 'I'm feeling wonderful', she told CBS on Monday, adding the secret to her longevity was 'pray, pray, pray...
    Georgia officials have launched an investigation into whether Trump lawyer Lin Wood voted illegally during the 2020 presidential election. Goergia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, is investigating whether Wood, who championed the former president's claims of voter fraud, was actually a resident of the state when he voted, WSB-TV reported. Wood confirmed to WSB-TV that he has 'moved out of Georgia' but claims it has nothing to do with investigations into him. 'I have been domiciled in South Carolina for several months after purchasing property in the state in April,' Wood told WSB-TV.  Lin Wood, left, is reportedly under investigation by Georgia officials who are trying to determine if he was actually a resident of Georgia Lin Wood confirms to me that he has moved out of Georgia.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — On this historic Inauguration Day, many in New York City were out celebrating the 46th president, and there were moments throughout the ceremony that left New Yorkers beaming with pride.

As did TriBeCa resident Lisa Resnick, who popped in to listen to the president’s message of unity. “Everybody’s sort of broken apart and it’s not just a Band-Aid that’s gonna fix this. It’s gonna be a lot of people pulling together and unified effort, and I think between him and Harris, they’re gonna make it happen,” she said. It was a small party but a big moment...

    Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Trader Joe's has set the bar for safety among grocery retailers in Colorado — but even the best practices can't guarantee that the novel coronavirus won't gain admittance. According to the latest report from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, the chain's Colorado Springs branch has suffered an outbreak. It's one in a wave of site-based infections that's set a new record for the third week in a row. The CDPHE considers an entity an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or other people connected to a specific location are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or two or more cases of respiratory illness with an onset of symptoms within a fourteen-day period are paired with at least one additional COVID-19 diagnosis. The CDPHE's October 14 update lists 897 total outbreaks in the state so far: 274 active, 623 resolved. That's an increase of 64 over the October 7 total of 833, which was 63 outbreaks higher than September 30's 53. And the current number would be higher if not for...

    A new lawsuit claims that early last year, a Denver-area nursing home evicted ailing resident Donna Clifford for nonpayment, with the full knowledge that she was incapable of caring for herself without assistance, and even though the majority of her fees were covered by government aid. Nine days later, she was found covered in her own waste and in a health crisis from which she never recovered. When Clifford died a few weeks later, she looked like a woman in her eighties or nineties, but she was just 59. The suit was filed by Clifford's children, Monica Almy and Chase Clifford, against Christopher House Rehabilitation and Care in Wheat Ridge, as well as the Denver North and Denver South offices of 24/7 AvaRe Healthcare.

    We already knew Capcom was working on a new Resident Evil entry, but during Sony’s recent PlayStation 5 showcase, the developer shared a second trailer for Resident Evil Village. The clip features a similar atmosphere to the one we saw in June, but includes narration from a mysterious mother-like character reading a fairytale, with the beats of the story broadly mirroring that of the game’s character. “It’s just a local tale,” they say ominously toward the end of the trailer. We still don’t have an exact release date for Resident Evil Village, but it’s slated to come out at some point in 2021.

    CHICAGO (CBS) —  A life lost…along with family treasures. A Chicago couple said their loved one’s possessions were thrown in the trash after he died. They’ve been trying for a year to get answers. CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot joins us now with a story you’ll see only on 2.

We found all kinds of things. Financial records. Those of...
    Getty A portrait of Strom Thurmond. A former South Carolina resident has recounted the racism she experienced growing up as she petitions to change the name of Strom Thurmond High School in Edgefield County. Ashley Hart Adams, who grew up in South Carolina, has launched a petition which outlines the need to change the name of Strom Thurmond High School. The petition describes the senator as a “vehement segregationist” who “hypocritically … fathered a biracial (African-American) daughter.” “His likeness and history should be remembered in museums and books, but his determination to prevent the advancement of Black lives makes him unfit to be celebrated or commemorated,” the petition says. The current petition has over 500 signatures, while a petition to rename the Strom Thurmond Wellness and Fitness Center at the University of South Carolina has more than 16,000 signatures. Advocates for the name change at the Wellness and Fitness Center include “former University of South Carolina football stars Marcus Lattimore, Mike Davis and Alshon Jeffery,” the Aiken Standard said.

    Michigan resident Mark Clark might be the luckiest man on the planet. Why do I say that? Well, it’s pretty simple. The man won a $4 million lottery prize for the second time since 2017! (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) According to Milotteryconnect.com, Clark won $4 million playing the Lottery’s Millionaire’s Club in 2017, and then just won another $4 million playing $150,000,000 Payout. Instead of accepting the full $4 million payout, he chose a lump sum payout of $2.5 million. Serious question for everyone reading this. Is Mark Clark the luckiest guy on the face of the Earth? I think the most I’ve ever won playing the lottery was $5 on my 18th birthday on a scratch-off. I’ve never bought a ticket since, and I never will. However, judging from Clark’s luck, I might have to rethink my stance because that dude has won $8 million in three years! Imagine the joy of winning $4 million just once in your life. It’d be an incredible feeling. Now imagine doing it again a few...
    By JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHER, Associated Press HONOLULU (AP) — There's no rational basis for denying a disabled woman supplemental Social Security benefits because she lives on Guam, while allowing her twin sister in Pennsylvania who has the same genetic disease to receive the payments, a U.S. judge in Guam ruled. Katrina Schaller and her twin sister Leslie were born in 1970 and grew up in Pennsylvania. The sisters suffer from myotonic dystrophy, a debilitating, degenerative genetic disorder affecting muscle function and mental processing. After their mother died in 2007, Katrina went to live with a sister on Guam and stopped receiving the federal payments, while her twin in Pennsylvania continued receiving the money. U.S. citizens living in any territory except the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands aren’t entitled to Supplemental Security Income, known as SSI, meant to help those who are blind or disabled. The judge’s ruling issued last week said this is “illogical and irrational.” “There is no relevant difference between Guam and the CNMI that would rationally justify the denial of SSI benefits to otherwise eligible U.S....

    A budget hearing at Cincinnati's city council ended in chaos last night after furious Black Lives Matter protests erupted over a resident's speech about police funding. City council finance committee chair David Mann adjourned the public input session to a chorus of boos after attempting to bring order to the Duke Energy Center. Mann, who had a box of tissues hurled at him as he left the stage, said the mob made him increasingly uncomfortable and that he felt 'trapped.' The speaker, Carl Beckman, introduced as a long-time resident of the city, had argued in favor of more funding for the police department and was constantly booed by the crowd.

    DEAR JOAN: We have three bird feeders, three bird baths, and bird and bee friendly plants, including two large bottlebrush shrubs that the birds hang out in. Some days we have a great number of birds at the feeders and baths. It was always entertaining. About a week ago, they left. There are hardly any sparrows, finches or other songbirds. What happened? I did not think these type of birds migrated. To our knowledge, nothing has changed in our yard. Charlene Cella, Benicia DEAR CHARLENE: Something did change in your yard. The birds, mostly, left. Don’t take it personally, however. It likely wasn’t because of something you did, but something Mother Nature did. According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, birds often abruptly desert feeders and backyards when nature has supplied an abundance of food for them. Nothing against your blend of seeds and water features, but it’s hard to compete with the natural stuff. The birds are most likely feasting in open spaces where plant and insect life is thriving. No banquet lasts forever, however, and if you keep...
    The man killed in a Paterson house fire Tuesday afternoon was identified Friday as longtime city resident Charles Bennett, 83. Responders found Bennett unresponsive in the basement, where the fire in the two-family home on 17th Avenue broke out. He was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. Authorities were still investigating the cause of the two-alarm blaze, which broke out around 2:30 p.m. and severely damaged the three-story, wood-frame house. Firefighters had it knocked down within an hour. Five people were displaced. Funeral arrangements for Bennett hadn't yet been made public on Friday.

    (CNN)When news broke months ago about the country's first coronavirus outbreak at a nursing home, Linda Mayberry immediately recognized the home's corporate logo as it flashed across her television screen. It was the same one emblazoned throughout the long-term care facility where she lived. Her nursing home, she realized, was owned by the same company struggling to curtail a rising death toll in Kirkland, Washington. Mayberry began to dread what would happen if coronavirus swept through her building. Soon after this discovery, her facility in Bellflower, California, instituted a lockdown in March, barring all visitors to try to keep the disease out. Mayberry spent her days alone in her room. Before the pandemic, she passed the time watching hours of classic movies, but now, as the black and white films played in the background, she scoured the internet for news about what was happening in the outside world. Mayberry, a film buff, shared this photo watching TV from her bed in her California nursing home.At first, few local governments released information about how Covid-19 was ravaging the vulnerable populations residing...
