This weekend marks two years since investigators say Everett Miller shot and killed Officer Matthew Baxter and Sergeant Sam Howard. They died while responding to a call near Palmway and Cypress streets in Kissimmee. To honor and celebrate their legacy, the police department is holding a Community Appreciation Day event at the station.  From 10 am to 2 pm, you and the whole family can enjoy FREE food, bouncy houses, and even a tour of the police department.  Jury selection for Miller's trial will begin on Monday, with opening arguments expected to begin on August 26th or 27th. Officer Baxter's wife Sadia says she will be there every day of the trial out of respect for her husband's legacy.

Team rides 'Its a Small World' for 13 hours for blood cancer cure

Team rides 'Its a Small World' for 13 hours for blood cancer cure

If you have ever been to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, then there is no doubt you know the ride 'Its A Small World'. The question is: Would you ride it for nearly 13 hours if it was for a good cause?  The team in training at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society seems to think so. On their website, they have announced that they will spend all of Saturday riding the 'Happiest Cruise that Ever Sailed' as many times as they can until the park closes. Each team member who participates in today's event will have a page that people can donate to in order to help raise money for blood cancer research.  The initial goal was to raise $25,000, but since that goal has already been reached, they have bumped it up to $32,000. The group says' Its the ultimate endurance challenge- both physically( sitting for hours on a hard plastic seat) and mentally( hearing the same song over and over and over).'  To keep track of the team's progress and donate yourself, you can check out their page here:  https://pages.lls.org/tnt/de/yourway20/smallworldchallenge2019

9 year old girl bitten by shark at New Smyrna Beach; fourth shark bite in a month

A 9-year-old girl was bitten by a shark in knee-deep water at New Smyrna Beach Friday morning.  According to an incident report by Volusia County Beach Safety, the incident happened around 11 a.m. near 27th Avenue.   The girl received medical treatment on the beach for a non-life-threatening laceration, but was transported to a hospital by her mother.   Last month, three people were bitten by sharks at New Smyrna Beach in two days.

Top aide confirms Trump interested in buying Greenland A senior White House official on Sunday confirmed that President Donald Trump has raised the issue of the United States possibly trying to buy the island of Greenland from Denmark, even though Danish officials say the North Atlantic outpost is not for sale. 'Greenland is a strategic place,' top economic adviser Larry Kudlow said at the end of an interview with Fox News Sunday, acknowledging that the President is interested. 'The President - who knows a thing or two about buying real estate - wants to take a look,' Kudlow added. The comments came even as officials in Denmark and Greenland said the island was not for sale. Kudlow noted that President Harry Truman had raised the same possibility when he was in office, but the idea went nowhere. 'We're open for business, not for sale,' said Greenland's official representative to the U.S. in a tweet. Reaction from Congress to the news reports about the idea of buying Greenland was muted. GOP Rep. Tim Burchett of Tennessee said on Twitter that he wouldn't support such an idea during a time of budget deficits. “I think it's Trump's Folly,” said Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA). The New York Daily News may have had the most fun with the story, printing a headline on Saturday which echoed one of the tabloid's most famous headlines ever.
