Back to School
Via CBS News
Officer Rob Pitts, from the Terre Haute police department, was killed in the line of duty earlier this month. When his 5-year-old son, Dakota asked his mother if an officer could take him to school on his first day back, local police stepped up to the plate. About 70 officers formed an honor guard for Dakota as he arrived at school, wearing his father’s shield around his neck.

A police officer assigned to the K-9 unit was stuck in traffic on Mass Ave last week when he was flagged down by a terrified mother. The mother said her 3-week-old son had stopped breathing. The officer cleared the child’s airway and the baby regained consciousness. Talk about being in the right place, at the right time!
A Wonderful Mother’s Day

Brenda Pearson is a waitress from Roland Arkansas. This past Mother’s Day she was working at the 4 Star Diner when a truck driver, David Platt, ordered a cheeseburger to go. The two got to talking about life and her kids. On his way out, David left Brenda a $1,000 tip! He got the impression she was having a hard time and wanted to help her out. As if that wasn’t enough, an hour later he returned and left a SECOND $1,000 tip! Thank you, David, for making sure Brenda had the Mother’s Day she deserved!
