    Mitchell then stopped by the house the next day to check on the dogs. The Marras are very grateful that Mitchell was there to save the day. The couple told reporters that if Mitchell had not been there, the dogs would have been in the pool for at least another three hours and likely would have drowned. "If it weren't for him, we wouldn't have dogs. There's no question about it," Jeff Marra said. "I would say that he is a hero," Rebecca added. The Marras speculate that the dogs wound up in the pool after they managed to jump the pool gate. Both dogs have made a full recovery.

The Roseland Pumping Station went down on May 6, prompting a 24-hour boil order for parts of the Beverly, Morgan Park, and Roseland neighborhoods. The same pumping station went down again on May 25, although a boil order was not necessary for the second outage.

    Fifteen years ago, the Department of Defense established a program to combat sexual assault and rape in the ranks. Since then, the military has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on prevention efforts with a stated policy of zero tolerance.  A year-and-a-half long investigation by "CBS Evening News" anchor and managing editor Norah O'Donnell and the CBS News Investigative Unit into sexual assault within the U.S. military uncovered failures by leaders to address the issue. Over the course of the investigation, CBS News spoke with nearly two dozen survivors of sexual assault, whistleblowers who worked for the military's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program and families of suicide victims who say the military grossly mishandled reports of sexual assault. Three women hired to work for the military's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program are speaking out, alleging improper investigations and retaliation firings despite the Pentagon spending tens of millions of dollars on prevention and pledging to tackle the systemic issue.  Amy Braley Franck, Marianne Bustin and Lindsey Knapp were all hired to work for the program, which was established...

    As far as love goes, the pandemic has proved paradoxical. On the one hand, lockdown has put huge stress on existing relationships. On the other, it has shown us what it is to be lonely and made us yearn for a significant other more than ever.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many New Yorkers say voting in the primary Tuesday was a nightmare. Some people never got their absentee ballots, and others were waiting in line for hours.

    BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — An investigation into the International Weightlifting Federation has found doping cover-ups and millions of dollars in missing money, lead investigator Richard McLaren said Thursday. McLaren said 40 positive doping tests were “hidden” in IWF records and that athletes whose cases were delayed or covered up went on to win medals at the world championships and other events. The cases will be referred to the World Anti-Doping Agency. McLaren said former IWF president Tamas Ajan was “an autocratic leader” who kept the board in the dark about finances. Ajan received cash payments, some as much as $100,000, as doping fines from national federations or sponsors, McLaren said. He said $10.4 million was unaccounted for. “Everyone was kept in financial ignorance through the use of hidden bank accounts (and transfers),” McLaren said. “Some cash was accounted for, some was not.” McLaren said Ajan “permitted the (federation) elections to be bought by vote brokers” as he kept the presidency and promoted favored officials. Large cash withdrawals were made ahead of federation congresses, McLaren said, adding that voters were bribed...
