  • O.J. Simpson is scheduled to appear today before a parole board in Nevada in a hearing that will decide whether one of America's most notorious prisoners will be released.   Simpson is nine years into a nine-to-33-year sentence after his conviction in a 2007 kidnapping and armed robbery at a Las Vegas hotel. If paroled, Simpson could be released as early as October, said David Smith, a spokesman for the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners. Watch live video of the hearing below:  
  • Anthony DeNicola does everything he can to keep the memory of his son, Joseph, alive.  The 7-year-old died Nov. 4, 2014, just days after going into anaphylactic shock on Halloween. DeNicola, of Staten Island, has created a nonprofit, Joseph’s Helping Hand, to raise awareness of severe food allergies, from which Joseph suffered all his life.  He also has a tattoo on his arm that commemorates the last time he held his son’s hand. The poignant moment took place as doctors prepared to wheel Joseph into surgery to harvest his organs after the boy was declared brain dead.  “I’m very proud of it,” DeNicola told the Staten Island Advance about his tattoo. “I look in the mirror every day, and I’m still holding my son’s hand.”  According to Joseph’s story on the Helping Hands website, he began having problems with allergies almost immediately after his March 2007 birth. Eventually, he was diagnosed with severe allergies to milk, milk proteins, whey and hazelnuts.  “This is where it all started,” his father wrote on the website. “We had to read the ingredients in everything we bought.” When Joseph outgrew baby formula, he had to drink soy milk. His family also grew accustomed to carrying around an Epi-Pen and Benadryl wherever they went.  Even smelling food that contained an ingredient he was allergic to could send Joseph into anaphylaxis, his father wrote.  On his final Halloween, Joseph went trick-or-treating with family and friends. At a party later that night, his cousins had regular pizza in one room and Joseph had a specially-made pizza in a separate room. Despite all the precautions, Joseph, whose asthma had been acting up that week, required a breathing treatment with his nebulizer when he got home, his father said. As his breathing worsened, two Epi-Pens failed to bring him out of the reaction, so his father and a neighbor rushed him to the hospital. “At 5 o’clock, we were trick-or-treating, and at 7 o’clock, we were in the emergency room,” DeNicola told the Staten Island Advance shortly after Joseph’s death.  Joseph suffered cardiac arrest in the emergency room, his father said. His brain was deprived of oxygen for 20 to 30 minutes and, four days later, he was declared brain dead.  >> Read more trending news Joseph’s doctors said his cause of death was a “one-two punch of asthma and allergies together,” DeNicola told the Advance in 2014. Though no one saw Joseph eat anything he shouldn’t the night he got sick, DeNicola said the smell of the wrong food or someone failing to wash their hands around the little boy could have triggered his fatal allergic reaction.  After his death, his donated organs saved the lives of five other people, his website said.  “Joseph was always a giving little boy,” his father wrote. “If there was a line for something, Joseph would let everyone go first and he would wait quietly for his turn. He never complained.” The DeNicola family said that donating Joseph’s organs was one of the best things they ever did.  “It gave us peace and comfort to know that Joseph lives on through all of the people he saved,” the website said. “In life, he was always giving. He will continue to give through his foundation, through education and research on allergies and asthma.”
  • A 93-year-old woman was left bleeding after two men grabbed her keys and then took her car parked outside St. Peter’s Catholic Church in DeLand this morning. “Thankfully we were able to apprehend these folks and thankfully she was not seriously injured,” said Police Chief Jason Umberger. The woman was dragged about 20 feet as she was trying to stop the suspect from taking her car.  Police said the victim was “very articulate” in describing the men who took her purse and then her car. Darius Matthews and David Perkins III were arrested.
  • The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration is urging Floridians to make sure their vehicle is not included in the massive Takata airbag recall. Stephen Ridella with NHTSA’s Office of Defects Investigation says Florida is considered a “high priority” area for the recall.  He says Florida’s heat and humidity can hasten the degrading of materials inside the airbag causing them to fail sooner.   Ridella says Florida drivers shouldn’t have any problem finding the parts for the necessary repairs.   “Here in Florida parts are available 100%.  People can take their vehicles in and get a free replacement of their Takata inflator in their vehicle,” said Ridella.    You can check to see if your vehicle is included in the recall by clicking HERE.
  • Two men carjacked an elderly woman outside a church Thursday morning, the DeLand Police Department said. The duo shoved a woman to the ground and took her keys outside the Saint Peter Catholic Church at West New York Avenue and North Delaware Avenue, police said. Investigators said the carjackers drove erratically as officers followed them, and they ended up crashing the car. No other details were given. The incident remains under investigation.
