    BIG BEAR, Calif. (KABC) -- Even though the first snow storm of the season hasn't arrived yet, Big Bear Mountain Resort opened Thursday to season pass holders."I expected for there to be snow by now," said Johnny Espinoza, a season pass holder. "Usually by Thanksgiving time we already have some snow going on, but I'm excited to be here now."Resort officials said although there isn't much natural snow, this isn't uncommon and that their robust snow making machines will help carry the resort through its roughly four-month snow season."We typically try to get open somewhere around Thanksgiving, give or take a week on either side," said Justin Kanton, a Big Bear Mountain Resort official. "That being the case, we're fairly in line with the typical season start. Weather has been warmer than usual, but we've been able to make enough snow to get limited runs open at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit.""Last year this was open on Thanksgiving," said Jason White, a season pass holder. "Now, it's Dec 2 and we got one run, so I guess we're blaming global...
    BUTLER COUNTY (KDKA) — The Thanksgiving leftovers are hardly cold, but it’s prime Christmas tree season. National reports say there could be a low supply of trees this year, and KDKA wanted to find out what supply looks like in our area.

They did say if you plan accordingly, you will be able to find the tree you want. “Every year, we come out to a tree farm like this and hopefully cut down one for ourselves. It’s a great way to start the Christmas season,” Nick Bonazza said after cutting one down with his family.

For his farm, Friday was opening day. He said supply will be tight this year. “We can’t grow...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A Lancaster teacher who spent weeks teaching her elementary school class from her hospital room is thankful to be home celebrating Thanksgiving with her family. Janet Udomratsak was hospitalized last year for pregnancy complications during the height of the pandemic. She was on bedrest alone in her room for weeks unable to see her husband or her family. “It was the hardest thing ever. To not be able to get up. To not be able to do anything. Not being able to see family,” said Udomratsak. Udomratsak, an elementary school teacher, was determined to keep working converting her hospital suite into a virtual classroom. She had a laptop and white board inches away from a hospital monitor and rolling bed just out of frame for the students connected to a video class from their computers at home. She even timed lunch breaks with doctors making their rounds. To keep her students from worrying, she kept it at a secret for as long as she could – until one little girl noticed something funny. “I slipped my...

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- On this Thanksgiving Day, we asked people in San Francisco to share what they are thankful for. Most people said they are happy to enjoy the little things."I am thankful for the beautiful day we had," said Kate Osterland, who was in town visiting the city. "It was a good day for a run.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — This Thanksgiving is certainly different than last – when the pandemic raged without widespread vaccine availability, keeping many families separated.

    One of the hosts of The View was slammed online after she urged closeted LGBTQ members to 'come out' to their families during the Thanksgiving holiday.  Joy Behar, 79, one of the four hosts of the talk show, was discussing the dreaded politics conversations that families get into on Thanksgiving with Whoopi Goldberg when she said she welcomed divisive discussions during Wednesday's episode. Then she suddenly said, 'I'd like to suggest everybody out there, come out to your family this Thanksgiving,' Behar said. 'Just come out!

    With the holiday season each year comes a slew of new movies for everyone. This year’s offerings include family-friendly picks, drama, comedy and even horror.  Additionally, with Christmas just around the corner, the holiday-themed offerings are beginning to roll in.

    Did Mac Jones just ruin any chance of rookie of the year with his take on Thanksgiving desserts? Depends who you ask.  The New England Patriots quarterback revealed his controversial take during an appearance Monday on WEEI’s "Merloni & Fauria," where he began by saying he "doesn’t really care" about what’s on the table at Thanksgiving dinner.  PATRIOTS’ BILL BELICHICK’S FAVORITE THANKSGIVING DISH: ‘LOAD ‘EM UP’  "I just eat whatever we have," Jones said.  "I don’t like apple pie either," he said after also dismissing pecan pie. "I don’t like any of the pies."

    Her Christian faith was unshaken, and she obeyed Jesus' commands to love God and to love others as herself. She volunteered with Restoration Ministries in Shamokin, Pennsylvania, distributing food to those in need. Jessica was sweet, and she was kind and helpful. Everyone who met her loved her. Many tears were shed for her from relatives and friends at the funeral. She is remembered well by all who knew her. This year, the Thanksgiving celebration in my family is tinged by sadness, because we loved Jessica and we miss her greatly. But we are nevertheless grateful to God for the life that she lived, for the joy she brought us, for the service she gave to others out of love for them. We are glad that we can gather together to remember Jessica and give thanks to God for the blessing that she was to each of us, and to many more. We are also thankful for the doctors and health care workers, who valiantly fought to save her life and the lives of many others. And for...
    Tom Brady will be enjoying the ultimate cheat day this Thanksgiving.    The quarterback ordinarily adheres to a very restrictive diet, but plans on completely breaking it for the upcoming feast.    'Just like everyone else,' Tom, 44, said during an interview with Oprah Winfrey on his SiriusXM show, Let's Go! 'That's the one meal where I'm just like "Screw it, let's go for it." We all get to enjoy it.'  'Screw it': Tom Brady plans on ditching his strict diet for Thanksgiving  But unlike millions of Americans, Tom will be busy with football practice for most of Thanksgiving and will only be able to spend a few hours with his family. 'Thanksgiving, there's a lot to be thankful for, but you only get four hours to enjoy it,' he said. 'Practice usually ends at about 1 or 2. You eat about 3:30, then you're getting ready for next day of practice. Same with Christmas.' RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Thanksgiving cheer from Hollywood! Celebrities take to...

    Every Thanksgiving, I write a reminder for the people at home or with their families to take a moment to think about people who have to work on the holiday. This year, the pandemic has altered that landscape a little bit, in ways good and bad.  A number of retail chains that in recent years just couldn’t wait until Black Friday, and had opened on Thanksgiving, will be closed on Thursday this year. They didn’t necessarily do it out of the goodness of their hearts—many of those companies are struggling to find workers and burning out the ones they have probably won’t help them with staffing. Target even made clear that it was staying closed on Thanksgiving because customers liked it that way, not because it was the right thing to do for workers. Still, amid labor shortages, the holiday shopping season will be intense enough for the people working in those stores.  A rousing boo to any store that is closed on Thanksgiving but doesn’t have holiday pay. And too many workers will still be called into jobs that really don’t need...

    BROWARD (CBSMiami) – Your furry family friend doesn’t want to be left out from the Thanksgiving table this year. Before everyone sits down to eat, it’s important to know what foods are off-limits for pets and it’s a good idea to inform your house guests as well. READ MORE: Don't Be A Turkey: AAA Activates 'Tow to Go' For Thanksgiving Weekend“So much of Thanksgiving centers around food and eating that people are often tempted to feed a traditional holiday meal – complete with turkey and stuffing – to their pets. But those foods can actually make your dog or cat very sick, and at times, can even be deadly,” caution Broward County Animal Care and Adoption Division Veterinarians. To keep your pet safe, feed your pet at the usual feeding time and do not feed them any part of the Thanksgiving meal. While people may think turkey is safe, often the seasoning from the turkey drippings, along with the skin and gravy can cause pancreatitis – inflammation of the pancreas. Turkey bones are particularly dangerous since they can splinter and cause...

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and I regret to inform you that there's a multidrug-resistant salmonella outbreak running rampant in the nation's poultry industry. I know that's daunting, but something to be thankful for this year is the ProPublica reporters who spent the past several months uncovering that the outbreak never abated and looking into how fragmented food safety rules left the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration ill-equipped to stop it. I know I am. I don't bring up salmonella to scare you (most of the ProPublica reporters who ate poultry before working on this story still eat poultry) but to prepare you. While the food regulatory system has failed to stop the rise of infantis, a salmonella strain that doctors find difficult to treat, there are a lot of steps you can take to protect yourself. For...

    (CNN)We're living through a life-changing pandemic, an assault on democracy and a reckoning with racial justice. But it's the economy and inflation souring the overall mood for Americans.There's plenty of cause for concern on social, political and health issues. Covid-19 cases are up in most states, signaling yet again that the virus is here to stay. A series of court cases proved the national reckoning on issues of race is as complicated and unsolvable as ever. And looming behind every story on politics is the expected, attempted comeback of former President Donald Trump, who this time last year was plotting a coup. Sometimes these stories dovetail, as when Trump met with Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who was recently acquitted after killing two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last summer.On Wednesday, meanwhile, President Joe Biden pointed to the conviction of three White men in the death of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, as proof that "our justice system (is) doing its job."What may touch more Americans more directly every day, however, is the state of the US economy.Read MoreHere is the...

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather with family and friends, but dinner table talk can sometimes lead to awkward and uncomfortable conversations."Now you add COVID to it, it's been a couple of years, people are now worrying about do I wear a mask, who is vaccinated, who is not," said Anabel Basulto, a licensed marriage and family therapist at Kaiser Permanente.Basulto said it's best to avoid talking about sensitive topics, especially politics. But COVID and vaccination status is a conversation to talk about."I think you know who you are inviting and who is vaccinated and who is not. And just talk about it right off the bat. Just make an announcement and say I know some of us are not vaccinated and some of us are,'" said Basulto. "And then drop it and move on to your next activity."According to Basulto, anyone who is a guest at another family's dinner should avoid drinking too much."People tend to overdrink when they're anxious to try to relax and that can create problems for you," said Basulto.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – With some 4 million people expected to hit the road this Thanksgiving, far more than last year during the height of the pandemic, experts said the best bet for drivers is to practice patience because they won’t be alone on the road.

Both entities are known for their Thanksgiving Day/Week-themed events. The Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys are staples on television on Thanksgiving, while the WWE debuted The Survivor Series on Thanksgiving Day in 1987, as was the Original Starrcade. MMA has not embraced the holiday with as much gusto as others. ONE Championship may be trying to change that. Their event, NextGen III, will be airing for fight fans across the world on the day after us American’s celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s not a major card by any means, most casual MMA fans won’t know many of the names on this card, if any, and even the diehards will have to scratch their chin trying to see if they can’t figure out who’s who. That’s the point of the card, however, to give rising new talent an opportunity to showcase their skills. Former UFC prospect  Jarred Brooks is headlining the...
    A majority of people say they hope to avoid discussing politics this year at Thanksgiving, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. Two-thirds of respondents said they do not wish to talk about politics with friends and family over the Thanksgiving holiday , according to the poll . On the other hand, 21% said they are looking forward to discussing politics. BLACK LIVES MATTER ACTIVIST WONDERS WHETHER WAUKESHA ATTACK LINKED TO RITTENHOUSE VERDICT: 'SOUNDS POSSIBLE' THE 'REVOLUTION HAS STARTED' About 50% of respondents said it was "not likely at all" they will engage in a heated political debate over the holiday, 24% said it was not so likely, 15% said it was somewhat likely, and 9% said it was very likely. "A heaping serving of political back and forth with your cranberries and stuffing? No way, say Americans, who would far rather feast on the big meal than feud with each other on Turkey Day," said Tim Malloy, a polling analyst with Quinnipiac University. The poll also asked how much people plan on giving...
    Those who want to rent a car for the holiday season this year may be in for sticker shock. Travel site Kayak reports that the average cost of rental cars is up 75 percent from 2019 and 66 percent from 2020. Jonathan Weinberg, the founder and CEO of Autoslash.com, also said the average price for a rental car nationwide is about $100 more per day than it was to rent a car in 2019. In in-demand markets, like New York, renters could even pay as much as $300-a-day to rent a car, he told the New York Post, as AAA expects 48.3 million people will drive for the Thanksgiving holiday and 4.2 million people will fly. And a study from Finance Buzz found that the average cost of renting a sedan in New York City is $261.17 per day while the average price of an SUV in the city comes in at $392.30.  The increased prices come amid sky-high gas prices and supply chain issues that are slowing down the production of new cars.  'Things are pretty crazy at the moment,...
    A teacher at the Star School, a Navajo educational facility, teaches pupils in her tribe's language the traditional native weaving techniques on Feb. 23, 2018, in Leupp, Arizona. At the foot of dry hills on a high plateau in Arizona, the Navajo Star School, one of the most ecological schools in the country, wants to protect the Earth and its threatened culture by drawing inspiration from Amerindian values. by Ray Levy Uyeda This story was originally published at Prism. This year’s Thanksgiving holiday marks the 400th year of a meal shared between early settlers and Wampanoag Native peoples that laid the foundation for American mythos of collaboration and cross-cultural unity—or so the story goes. In a broad cultural shift, more schools are considering moving away from the narrative most educated in the public school system are familiar with: one of benevolent and vulnerable pilgrims who sought alliances with Native peoples. In reality, Thanksgiving was a massacre, one that kicked off the enslavement of Native peoples, colonization of Native-stewarded land, and kidnapping of Native children for their placement in...

    Hosts of The View are grateful for a president this Thanksgiving, and — surprise — it's not former President Donald Trump . Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines praised President Joe Biden on Wednesday. They listed each accomplishment they were grateful for, from infrastructure to coronavirus relief. "I don't want to bore people with the list, but the list is long," Behar said. THE VIEW CO-HOST BLAMES HARRIS'S LOW APPROVAL ON PEOPLE WANTING TO 'COME DOWN ON THE WOMAN' She mentioned his signing of the infrastructure bill, a coronavirus relief plan, the "little bit messy" ending of the War in Afghanistan, canceling student loan debt for people with disabilities, returning the United States to the Paris climate accord, and lower unemployment rates.

    (CNN)Jim Jones is facing a supply chain squeeze on his farm outside Raleigh, North Carolina, as skyrocketing costs slice through his profits.On top of spiking labor costs, the prices of fertilizer and fuel have been climbing for months, with no ceiling in sight.

    Hi Everyone!    Thanksgiving Eve is here, and I am happy to report to you that wind chills are not.  Our past overnight low, and expected daytime high today, are on the chilly side of average but at least we are NOT dealing with the harsh wind chills of the past two days. 49° is the high today. And given the real feel of yesterday was more like 35°, and given the almost 50° of today, it will feel close to 15° milder. And on this day that is big.

    For a holiday grounded in tradition, this Thanksgiving is going to feel unsettling: face masks, socially distanced gatherings around an outdoor fire pit, and even Zoom calls with relatives from afar. In the midst of such a shakeup, perhaps the most grounding step we can take is to reflect on our old traditions and whether they truly serve us, our families, and our communities — especially when it comes to the focal point of the holiday for millions of American households: the bird on the table. A Shrouded History The origins of the turkey at the center of our holiday meal are actually murkier than the widely embraced narrative of the “First Thanksgiving” celebrated between the Pilgrims and Wampanoag tribe, which was, in reality, an unremarkable occasion that may not even have featured turkey at all. And, of course, the account completely sidesteps the grim history of raids, murders, and other crimes committed against Native Americans by European colonists. Nonetheless, the turkey took on a starring role in early American literature — particularly the 1827 novel Northwood by Sarah Josepha Hale, who campaigned for...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — This Thanksgiving weekend, a negative COVID test has become a much sought-after hostess gift. At Mt. Carmel Pharmacy in the Bronx, CBS2’s Christina Fan found many guests getting their swabbing done. READ MORE: As Holiday Travel Picks Up Again, Lawmakers Call For COVID Restrictions For Domestic Flights“Yes, people are testing. They are concerned. We had quite a few positives yesterday as well,” said Roger Paganelli, with Mt. Carmel Pharmacy. “If you are going to be around family that you haven’t seen, yes, it’s good to get it, to be honest. Because you haven’t seen them, you don’t know who they’ve been around,” Bronx resident Victoria Perez said. With millions of Americans still unvaccinated and a recent surge in new infections nationwide, some party hosts are requiring friends and family to get tested on or before arrival. Etiquette expert Tom Farley says it’s a reasonable ask, especially since at-home test kits are easily accessible at CVS and Walgreens for $24 a pack. But he recommends hosts give their guests ample notice prior to travel. READ MORE:...
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren demanded an investigation into the cost of Thanksgiving turkeys on Tuesday, accusing poultry farmers of using monopoly power to jack up prices. Last week the American Farm Bureau Federation said the average cost of this year's turkey feast had jumped by 14 percent. With consumers already facing record gas prices, Warren called on the Department of Justice to act on a 24 percent hike in turkey prices. She called out four big producers - JBS Foods, Tyson, Perdue, and Sanderson - which she said controlled more than half the market. 'Lack of competition in the poultry industry is allowing these massive companies to squeeze both American consumers and farmers to fuel record corporate profits and payouts to shareholders,' she wrote in a letter to the DOJ. 'When companies have monopoly power as massive suppliers, they can jack up prices of the goods they sell.  'And when those same companies have complete or substantial market power as large employers or buyers of inputs, also known as monopsony power, they can suppress their own costs for those inputs, including workers'...

But he touted the release by the Department of Energy of 50 million barrels of oil from the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SRP), which the White House announced earlier on Tuesday.  “This is a problem, not just here in the United States, but around the world,” Biden said in remarks at the White House, referencing the record-high cost of gas in Europe and Asia. He noted previous recent spikes in gas prices, including those in 2012, 2014 and 2019. “The fact is we always get through those spikes but we’re going to get through this one as well as hopefully faster,” he said.  Of the...
