Good afternoon! We hope you're enjoying the sunshine as much as we are today!

Here are some stories of interest for you today:

1. Country music legend and Mount Pleasant resident Ray Price is still at home today at his ranch with his wife Janie by his bedside as he is cared for by hospice nurses. Details here.

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. "He has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and leukemia ... 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.

The fun begins Saturday, Dec. 21 with the Gildan New Mexico, Royal Purple Las Vegas, Carrier R+L New Orleans and Famous Idaho Potatoes bowls.

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. After more than 40 years of study, the federal government said Monday it has no evidence that the anti-bacterial chemicals used in common soaps and washes help prevent the spread of germs, and it is reviewing research suggesting they may pose health risks. Whether you use antibacterial soap or plain, just wash your hands often, y'all; it's flu season!

    The man in red likes to take things - a mower and weed eater from one home, change and a cell phone from someone's unlocked truck, even a little red wagon, and a 2-year-old's lunch box. Neighbors said the thief wears all red and a home surveillance camera caught him as he peered into 2-year-old Willia's backyard where she stored her little red wagon. "If our children's play toys in our backyard at this point, if they can't even have those without worrying about if someone is go...
