TV-64 partners with Salvation Army this holiday season

TV-64 is partnering with the Salvation Army to help support this holiday’s Red Kettle Campaign.

The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte will ring at more than 70 locations around town until Christmas Eve.  Every dollar raised in the Red Kettle Campaign is critical for year-round programs of the Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte and surrounding communities.

For homeless women and children, it provides a warm bed and food to eat; it also helps identify and remove their barriers to housing. For at-risk youths, it opens doors to the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs after school, providing a safe, positive refuge off the streets.

The organization helps senior citizens find safe, affordable housing where they can live independently in a community.

Funds also go toward helping children in need have a gift to open on Christmas morning.

Boys trapped deep in snow bank rescued after cop notices shovel

Two cousins reported missing about 10 p.m. Wednesday night were rescued several hours later after they were discovered buried deeply in a snow bank.

The rescue began when a police officer who heard a report about the missing boys noticed a snow shovel near a snow bank and started digging.

After digging into the bank more than a dozen times, he hit a child’s shoe.

Others joined in, digging with shovels and hands until the boys, ages 11 and 9, were pulled out — miraculously alive and expected to fully recover.

It had snowed more than a half foot of snow on Wednesday, and the boys were digging in a snow pile to build a fort when a snow plow dumped more snow onto the pile, trapping them.

They spent about 4 hours buried in the pile of snow but somehow managed to breathe.

“They were probably in about five feet of snow,” said Newburgh police Sgt. Aaron Weaver. “But however it fell, there was, like, a dome around their heads, so there was air in there, like space for them.” (Source: NewYork.cbslocal.com)

Suspended RB Ray Rice wins appeal

Suspended running back Ray Rice has won an appeal of his suspension and is immediately eligible to play with any team in the National Football League, according to reports from ESPN.

Ray Rice and wife Janay testified earlier this month in a hearing in the former Baltimore Ravens running back.

The arbitration hearing led by a former federal judge was created to determine whether the NFL overstepped its authority in modifying Rice's two-game suspension, making it indefinite after video of the running back hitting his wife — then his fiancee — was released.

The hearing began nearly two months after the former Pro Bowl running back was suspended indefinitely by the NFL and released by the Ravens.

League security chief Jeffery Miller and Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome also testified in the hearing. Ravens President Dick Cass, who was previously expected to testify, was not asked to take part in the hearing, one of the sources said.

The NFL players' union said in a statement that the hearing was fair and thorough, and thanked NFL owners and officials for agreeing to use a neutral arbiter.

"The collectively bargained rights of all players must be vehemently preserved and we take that obligation seriously," the statement said. "This appeal, presided over by a neutral arbitrator, which included a presentation of all the relevant facts, witness testimony to the truth and cross examination, is the due process that every athlete deserves."

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy declined comment. "We continue to respect the confidentiality order set weeks ago," he said.

Rice was suspended indefinitely Sept. 8 for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Rice sought immediate reinstatement, though it's unlikely a team would sign him this season. Rice has also filed a separate wrongful termination grievance against the Ravens.

Goodell originally suspended the running back for two games. The incident occurred inside an elevator at an Atlantic City casino in February, when Rice and Janay Rice were engaged. The couple married a month later.

The league considered the video made public after the initial suspension to be new evidence, giving Goodell the authority to amend Rice's punishment. But Rice's attorneys are arguing he should not be disciplined twice, citing the collective bargaining agreement.

Rice's side also argued that he described details of the incident to Goodell when they met in June. Goodell has called Rice's description "ambiguous" while the player's representatives have maintained he gave exact details.

Rice's attorneys also said the indefinite suspension isn't consistent with other punishments issued by Goodell in the past.

Jones was jointly picked by the commissioner and the players' union to hear the appeal. Though it isn't a criminal case, Jones asked witnesses to testify under oath. Transcripts of the testimony will not be released publicly, one source said.

Rice, a three-time Pro Bowl pick, played in two preseason games for the Ravens this year. His last carry was a 6-yard run against San Francisco on Aug. 7.
