    DENVER (CBS4) – I love Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite holidays, because it is all about gratitude. There’s no gift giving or receiving, no decorations or songs. It is, simply, a time to pause and reflect on what we have to be thankful for in our lives. This year, for many in our community, giving thanks will be difficult. We have experienced a year of uncertainty, fear and loss — a global pandemic, demonstrations for social justice, a contentious election, and a destructive wildfire season. Firefighters battle the Cameron Peak Fire, the largest wildfire in Colorado history. (credit: CBS) For journalists, covering the big story — and all the emotion that surrounds it — is part of our daily work. But this year, it’s personal too. Each person in our newsroom experienced the pandemic, the demonstrations, the election and the fires in a unique, personal way. The separation that typically exists between work and home was gone — as the pain and stress reported in our stories was often felt at home as well. This perspective often informed our...

    D’Eriq King has been everything Miami football fans could have hoped for.Without D’Eriq King, there is next to no way the Miami football team is ranked No. 9 overall. In Manny Diaz‘s second year leading the Miami Hurricanes, the head coach has gotten a big boost out of his graduate transfer quarterback. Along with offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, King has been a huge reason for Miami being well on its way to becoming “The U” once again. Had King not played well in Week 11, Miami would have lost to the Virginia Tech Hokies up in Blacksburg. D’Eriq King has Miami on the precipice of a New Year’s Six bowl appearanceKing completed 24-of-38 passes for 255 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions vs. Justin Fuente‘s Hokies. He also had 18 carries for 15 yards a touchdown. Ultimately, King was the difference in this tight game between typical ACC Coastal foes. Miami escaped Lane Stadium with a narrow 25-24 victory over the Hokies, as the Hurricanes improved to 7-1 on the season. For years, Miami has had the defensive prowess to...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – In a new video message, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott thanked all the support he has received since he suffered a season-ending injury. It was a gruesome injury seen around the nation on Sunday that led current and former players and fans to offer their thoughts and prayers toward Prescott. He was carted off the field in tears and almost immediately taken to the hospital. He reportedly had a successful surgery that evening to repair a right ankle compound fracture. On Thursday morning, Prescott took to social media to speak for the first time publicly since that surgery to give an update and give thanks to all that support. He said he was on his way to the doctor for his first check-up since the surgery. “Just want everyone to know that I’m doing well. I can’t thank you enough for all your love, your support, your prayers over the last few days. They’ve been more than overwhelming,” Prescott said in the video. “From teammates to family to friends to fans I don’t know to former and...
    MONROVIA (KABC) -- With more people at home during the pandemic, rock community groups are gaining popularity. We're not talking about the head banging music... but actual rocks. Yes there's a phenomenon that has people painting rocks with images or inspirational messages and leaving them for their neighbors.Maria Vangilder of "Monrovia Rocks" is one of those people trying to lift people's spirits, by painting rocks."You know every little bit of happiness we can find right now that's a good thing," said Vangilder. "It's to spread joy and love around the town, that might sound a little hokey but you know in these times, just a little thing like finding a painted rock does bring some joy."It's a simple idea, born by the Kindness Rocks Project, a global movement with a viral following on social media. The rocks can be found just about anywhere."Many people say they've walked further just so they can find a few more rocks!" said Vangilder.This week, in a smoke-filled Monrovia, these rocks have deeper meaning. Outside the city's fire headquarters, a couple dozen have been placed......
    Massacre. Mickelson. Mulligan. To recite the history of Winged Foot is to parade through a veritable vocabulary list of mishaps and misreads — a mashup of bad things that happen to good people when a golf course isn’t set up so much to identify the best player as to humble him. Years before the U.S. Open and Winged Foot became widely known as one of the most diabolical duos in major championship golf, one member of the club had the temerity — or maybe the foresight — to ask for a do-over. His name: David Mulligan. Mulligan lent his moniker to the second chances that pretty much everyone has partaken in on golf courses across America. That he was a member of Winged Foot seems especially apropos, given that it has long been almost universally regarded as one of the most difficult tests in golf, especially when the USGA gets its hands on it. “The last 18 holes are very difficult,” Jack Nicklaus said back in 1974 after “The Massacre at Winged Foot” left Hale Irwin holding the U.S....
    Celinés Toribio. Photo: Mezcalent / Mezcalent As we told you, the Dominican presenter and actress, Celinés Toribio she will be a guest host this week at ‘A new day’, and the public thanks in social networks that he is in the show. The followers of the Telemundo morning show are usually very critical, and sometimes even cruel, when giving their opinions. They criticize Adamari Lopez or Chiqui Baby for their clothing. They threaten never to see the show again with the exits of Hector Sandarti, Rashel Diaz and Chef James… However, Celinés ran with luck. Yes, in the post that ‘Un Nuevo Día’ put on his Instagram account announcing the presence of Toribio all week, most of the comments were positive, and the not so many, advised Celinés not to get into a program that already ‘I was lost’. ali_sscar: ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????❤️❤️❤️ she is a woman with a unique talent, a person that at least I have heard here in Santo Domingo who has sounded for her work, I have never heard involved...
    However, that is far short of the $500 billion in losses Moody's estimated will be lost over the next two fiscal years. House Democrats passed a relief bill on May 15 that would provide $915 billion for state and local relief. But McConnell has refused to consider the Democratic bill and has been digging in his heels when it comes to helping cities and states, who have seen tax revenue fall off a cliff as businesses shuttered thanks to the coronavirus. McConnell has characterized aid to state and local governments as a "Blue State Bailout," and told Fox News on Tuesday he wants to take any possibility for providing more aid to states "off the table." On Monday, Trump tweeted that congressional Democrats, "only wanted BAILOUT MONEY for Democrat run states and cities that are failing badly." That is not true. Republican-run states are also facing budget shortfalls thanks to the pandemic — and they're also asking for more money. The Journal reported that Louisiana, which has a GOP-controlled legislature, is facing a 46% decline in revenue thanks to the...

Jaime, a physician assistant at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, called 911 and started CPR.

Derek was rushed to one hospital and days later to Swedish Medical Center. There, he learned he had a rare condition, Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome (WPW),...
    Multimedia mogul and actor Tyler Perry addressed the civil unrest — hallmarked by racial strife and anti-cop sentiments — dominating the country by donating 1,000 Kroger gift cards to the Atlanta police, so they could, in turn, distribute them to members of the community. Atlanta police officers distributed $50 Kroger gift cards this week following a donation from Perry, an Atlanta resident. “This is about the community that I love, that I live in and work in,” Perry said in a statement, according to PEOPLE. “This is about good people who are in need of a hand up not a handout.” “This is about the good police officers who do their job well every day some of which are my personal friends,”Perry continued. “This is about trying to bridge unity in a city that adopted me and held me up high enough to reach my own branch on the tree of success.” Photos and videos show police officers handing out the gift cards and, in some cases, going door-to-door: Watch below:  Watch below:  This was happening a lot today. @Atlanta_Police...
