2. A man who has been deaf for more than half a century finally heard his daughter's voice Sunday. Ashley Stehle, 15, was preparing for the Villa Duchesne Show Choir Christmas concert and hoping for a Christmas miracle...and she got it.

3.Your Week in History: Helpful ghosts and a harmful cartoon...don't be a Scrooge. Read up on this week in history.

4. One young man's gift to his ailing father was a special graduation ceremony in the family living room; it was an evening that won't soon be forgotten.

I knew he wasn't going to make it to my graduation and he had seen my older sister and my older brother graduate and I knew it was very important to him," said the son. Their story here.

5. Warm up the couch and put fresh batteries in the remote control. One of college football's most excessive and addictive traditions kicks off Saturday when the first of 35 post-season bowl games start to flood the airways.

6.  A federal judge ruled Monday that the National Security Agency's bulk collection of phone records violates the Constitution's ban on unreasonable searches, but put his decision on hold pending a near-certain government appeal.

7.
