Hurting for Storm Victims - 04/29/14

  Sometimes during a big weather event like we had last night, some people call and complain about missing part of a television show because of the wall-to-wall nature of our weather coverage.  When you see the reality of what happened in places like Lincoln County, I hope people understand why we do what we do on nights like that. 
  It's nothing short of a blessing to have information to warn people in time to make a difference.  It's a privilege to be among those whose job it is to share that information.  My sympathy to the families connected to the two confirmed deaths in Lincoln County and all the other storm deaths across the country.

WHITE HOUSE VISITOR CENTER

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Tourists visiting the White House will get a new $12 million welcome. The White House Visitor Center is reopening tomorrow, after extensive renovations over the past two years. The National Park Service says visitors will learn about the White House with more than 90 artifacts. There are new interactive exhibits, a bookstore and even resource-conserving restrooms.

SEAL RELEASE

CHARLESTOWN, R.I. (AP) -- It's a rescue -- sealed with seal pups. Four seal pups have been released into the wild from a beach in Rhode Island. Orion, Bullwinkle, Freya and Loki were rescued separately in Maine. They've been rehabilitated by a team at the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. The little seals even had to be taught how to fish, because they had never hunted on their own. The seal pups doubled in weight over the last few months and all are now healthy.

DRUGS IN STUFFED ANIMAL

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (AP) -- How cute -- a stuffed animal wearing an anti-drug T-shirt. But New York state troopers weren't fooled and say there was more than stuffing in the stuffed lion. Police report finding pot, cocaine and LSD hidden inside the toy. Troopers busted Gregory Bolongnese (bol-OH'-nays) at a bus station near the Canadian border. The 22-year-old Bolongnese is now facing multiple drug charges.

COOKING INTRUDER

ROCKLAND, Mass. (AP) -- Massachusetts police have busted a man making a racket in the kitchen -- because it wasn't his kitchen. Officers in Rockland say a homeowner woke up to a loud bang in the kitchen and called the cops. The homeowner found a stranger cooking corn. The man refused to leave and the two briefly scuffled. The Enterprise of Brockton reports officers arrested 69-year-old John Dalton. Police say he was drunk and forced his way into the home through a side door.
