Eagles' Nick Foles puts Texas high school into Super Bowl record book

With his impressive performance in Sunday’s NFC Championship game, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles helped his Texas high school etch its name in the NFL record books.

>> Read more trending news

In leading the Eagles to a 38-7 victory against the Minnesota Vikings, Foles became the second former Westlake High School graduate to earn a start at quarterback in the Super Bowl.

Foles, a 2007 graduate, will join 1997 alumnus Drew Brees after throwing for 352 yards and three touchdowns against Minnesota. Brees started and won Super Bowl XLIV with the New Orleans Saints eight years ago.

The only other high school in the nation to produce two quarterbacks who have started in a Super Bowl is Isidore Newman School in New Orleans, a private school that produced brothers Peyton and Eli Manning.

During his two-year stint as Westlake’s starting quarterback, Foles broke Brees’ high school records for both passing yards (5,649) and passing touchdowns (56). Foles helped Westlake reach a championship game in 2006, while Brees led the Chaps to a state title in 1996.

Father, daughter found dead in frigid house sought help for furnace repair, police say

A father and daughter had asked for help to fix their furnace days before their frozen bodies were discovered in their frigid house, according to police.

>> Read more trending news

The bodies of Albert Bivins, 81, and Patricia Bivins, 55, were discovered by police after a neighbor called and said he had not seen them, according to the South Bend Tribune.

The Bivins had gone to the Ferry Street Resource Center, to ask for help to get their furnace fixed. The agency, which offers job placement and housing assistance, does not give money for furnace repair, but referred them to a group that does. It is unclear if they sought help, which can take time to get approval.

“They did not come back in here with any paperwork or any bids,” Greg Nasstrom, director of the Resource Center, told the South Bend Tribune.

Gas and electricity were working in the house, which was about 32 degrees when police arrived, according to the South Bend Tribune.

Police are still investigating the cause of death but believe it to be accidental.

Who was Sergei Eisenstein? Google honors Soviet film pioneer, 'father of montage'

In honor of what would have been Soviet film director Sergei Eisenstein’s 120th birthday, search engine giant Google created a special doodle tribute for its homepage.

>> Read more trending news

Here are five things to know about the Soviet legend:

He’s known as the “father of montage.

Eisenstein, who was born in Russia in 1898, was the mastermind behind montage, “a film technique of editing a fast-paced sequence of short shots to transcend time or suggest thematic juxtapositions,” Google wrote.

Essentially, a montage compresses time and gives the audience a lot of information in a short period of time. This type of technique often invokes emotion. In fact, according to CNET, Eisenstein believed the montage was “the nerve of the cinema,” and could be used to manipulate the audience’s emotions.

He’s best known for directing some groundbreaking films.

The Soviet artist and director is best known for his silent montage films, including “Strike” (1925), Battleship Potemkin (1925) and “October” (1928).

But some of Eisenstein’s historical epics, “Alexander Nevsky” (1938) and the two-part “Ivan the Terrible” (1944, 1958) left a lasting impression on modern filmmaking.

According to CNET, his work influenced the work of many notable filmmakers, including Alfred Hitchcock and Brian De Palma.

He received the Order of Lenin and Stalin Prize.

Eisenstein received the awards for his film “Alexander Nevsky” (1938), a movie with anti-Nazi Germany themes.

But when dictator Joseph Stalin entered into a pact with Adolf Hitler of Germany in 1939, Eisenstein’s “Nevsky” was quickly pulled. It wasn’t until 1941, after war broke out with Germany, that the film was re-released to international acclaim.

He was good friends with American actor Charlie Chaplin.

The two spent a lot of time together in the 1930s.

In Chaplin’s memoirs, he wrote about playing tennis with Eisenstein, going on boat rides and even described Eisenstein’s film “Battleship Potemkin” as “the best film in the world,” according to his memoir.

According to Ronald Bergan’s book, “Sergei Eisenstein: A Life in Conflict,” Eisenstein wrote, “Reality is like the serious white clown. It seems earnest and logical. Circumspect and prudent. But in the final analysis it is reality that looks the fool, the object of derision. Its partner, Chaplin, guileless and childlike, comes out on top. He laughs carelessly without even noticing that his laugh slays reality.”

He died when he was 50 years old.

Eisenstein died of a second heart attack on Feb. 11, 1948, in his Moscow apartment.

Florida man wrestles, wrangles gator outside his home

What does a southwest Florida man do when a gator gets too close to his home? He wrangles it.

>> Read more trending news

Michael Stauffer, of Bokeelia, told Fox 4 that when an alligator got too comfy crawling around his backyard, he grabbed a broom and towel, jumped on its back and wrangled it.

He wrapped the towel around its snout and duct-taped it shut. 

He then tossed the reptile into the back of his truck and drove it to the nearest Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission office. Bokeelia is on Pine Island in Lee County.

He posted the full video to his Facebook page: 

When asked if Stauffer would attempt such a feat again, Fox 4 said he told them that he would.

It is illegal to take or dispose of nuisance alligators unless you have a contract or permit with the commission. 

Funeral home director charged with stealing $284,000 from seniors who pre-paid for funerals

Fayette County funeral home director is facing charges for allegedly stealing $284,000 from clients -- mostly seniors -- who pre-paid for their own funerals

>> Read more trending news 

Stephen Kezmarsky, III, 50 was arrested and charged with taking the money from 51 clients for funeral expenses at the Kezmarsky Funeral Home, officials said. 

Instead of putting the money in escrow accounts as required by law, Kezmarsky is accused of misappropriating the money by mixing the funds with his business and personal accounts, officials said. 

Investigators said Kezmarsky used the funds for business expenses and for personal use, including purchasing airline tickets and alcohol. 

Kezmarsky is also accused of filling out applications for funeral insurance policies for clients, but never sending the money or applications in for processing. 

Kezmarsky and the funeral home filed for bankruptcy in 2017 and the funeral home has since been sold. 

He is facing 84 felony counts including theft by deception, forgery and insurance fraud.

Olivia Munn shut down Chris Pratt dating rumors by texting Anna Faris

Actors Olivia Munn and Chris Pratt sparked dating rumors when the pair were spotted having dinner over the weekend, but Munn says they are not together.

Just Jared reported that the 37-year-old “Magic Mike” actress took to social media to shut down rumors, and she had receipts from a surprising source.

>> Read more trending news 

“1. Not every woman is scorned and upset after a breakup,” she wrote in an Instagram story on Sunday.

Munn added, “2. Not every woman is ‘furious’ at another woman for dating her ex. 3. So even if I was dating @prattprattpratt, some tabloids got me and @annafaris all wrong. 4. Women respect and love each other a lot more than some people like to think.”

After posting the messages to prove her point, Munn shared a conversation between herself and Pratt’s ex-wife, Anna Faris, in which she clarified to Faris that the rumors were not true.

“I wanted to reach out to you personally to tell you the story about me and Chris dating has 0% truth,” Munn wrote in part. “I’m sure you already know it’s not true, or maybe didn’t care either way, but I just wanted to reach out personally to tell you it’s not true.”

Thanking her for being sweet for assuring her, Faris, 41, replied that she would be “thrilled” to have Munn as her “new sister in law” if the rumors had been true.

Pratt and Faris announced their split in August 2017 after eight years of marriage in a joint statement on social media before officially filing for divorce in December.

While it appears Pratt is keeping his bachelor badge for the time being, his ex-wife-to-be returned to the dating world two months after the couple publicly called it quits. Faris was first spotted in October with her cinematographer boyfriend, Michael Barrett. The couple reportedly met in September while working on her forthcoming comedy remake “Overboard.”

Munn and her ex-boyfriend NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers split in spring 2017 after three years of dating. Last week Danica Patrick confirmed she and Rodgers were dating.

The body of 42-year-old Kathleen Dawn West was found outside her Calera, Alabama, home, WTVT reported. Calera Police Chief Sean Lemley said his department is treating the case as a homicide but has not released any details, AL.com reported.

While West described herself as a full-time wife and mother on Facebook, her internet presence also included a subscription-only website, where she touted herself as Kitty Kat West, AL.com reported. The page included suggestive photos and invited readers to join her “pay page” for a monthly $15.99 subscription fee to view more risque content, WTVT reported.

Her last post on her Twitter page came the day before she was killed, WTVT reported. Police said West was found outside her home, located about 35 miles south of Birmingham, around 5 a.m., clad in just a sports bra, AL.com reported. They would not speculate as to whether her online activities led to her death, AL.com reported.

West graduated from Bloomingdale High school in Valrico, a suburb of Tampa, Florida, WTVT reported.

On Saturday, the family launched an online fundraising campaign to help pay for funeral costs. While West’s family has not commented publicly, her mother, Nancy Martin, wrote on the fundraising page that her daughter was “a cherished wife” and “a loving mother” to her daughter.

“So much negativity is out there, but with God all I see and hear is the goodness of my Kat,” Martin wrote.

Michigan doctor who came to US in 1979 detained by ICE

A Michigan doctor who came to the United States nearly 40 years ago has been detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, WXMI reported.

>> Read more trending news

Lukasz Niec, who works at Bronson Healthcare in Kalamazoo, came to the United States from Poland with his parents in 1979. His family said Niec had a green card and permanent legal resident status, WXMI reported.

ICE agents picked up Niec on Tuesday, his family said. His sister, Ivona Niec-Villaire, said two misdemeanors -- one for destruction of property and the other for receiving stolen property -- were included in the charging documents, and she told WXMI it was her belief that these charges were the reason ICE had detained the doctor.

“When I walked into that jail cell and I had to look at him through the glass and talk with him on the phone ... I just broke down into tears,” Niec-Villaire told WXMI. “He’s scared and he’s humbled at how everyone has rallied behind him. And the first thing he said to me was, ‘I’m sorry I’m putting you through this.’ And I said, ‘You don’t have to be sorry you did nothing wrong.’”

Relatives are hoping Niec’s case will be heard in early February, but said it could be weeks or even months before that occurs, WXMI reported.

"(Adam) never tugged on my clothes before, so I was a cautious about letting them out because I didn't know if there was anything out there," Lonnie Chester told MLive.com.

In the snow and darkness, the dogs found a woman in her late 80s, wearing only a nightgown, who had fallen and was struggling in the frigid cold.

When they found the woman on Jan. 13 it was 9 degrees that morning. They called 911, and personnel came to the scene and treated the woman. 

Family, who had been looking for the woman, came to the Chester’s house as rescue crews were there and asked if they had seen the woman.

"It could have been a tragic outcome had Adam and Eva not woken us," Susan Chester told MLive.com. "I don't know how they knew she was out there."

Flares, not improvised explosive devices, ignited at Florida mall, FBI says

 

Lake Wales police are searching for those responsible for igniting two marine flares Sunday evening near the entrance of the JC Penney at the Eagle Ridge Mall Sunday evening.

>> Read more trending news

Firefighters responded to reports of an explosion at the mall on 451 Eagle Ridge Drive around 5:20 p.m.

Firefighters initially said that an improvised explosive device had been detonated in a corridor located next to the mall entrance of JC Penney.

The FBI later determined that there was no explosion and no pipe bombs were discovered. Officials also said that the incident didn’t appear to be terrorism-related.

"It appears two items, believed to be marine flares, were ignited in a mall hallway, creating a large amount of smoke, and a backpack was located at the scene," said Andrea Aprea, an FBI spokeswoman. "Bomb technicians examined the contents of the backpack and determined it did not contain any incendiary or explosive devices."

A witness who called 911 told WFTV that she heard a fire alarm sound and saw orange smoke billowing from an object.

The mall was evacuated. No one was injured, but a ceiling and a wall were damaged by the flares, officials said.

After speaking with witnesses, police said they are looking for a person of interest described as a stocky, middle-aged white man wearing a gray shirt and a hat.

Detectives said they will review surveillance footage recorded at a jewelry store in the mall.

The investigation is ongoing.

Phillip Snider, the husband at the center of the investigation, told investigators in Benton County, Tennessee that he dumped his wife’s body in the Tennessee River, according to WBBJ.

Phillip and his wife, Roberta, left their Ohio home to visit Graceland, but she never came home. He told police his wife was in poor health and this was supposed to be their last trip.

Phillip Snider originally told police his wife died of natural causes in a hotel parking lot across from Graceland. He said they found an ambulance nearby and emergency workers told him they were taking her to a hospital.

However, there is no record of her body in Tennessee, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.Phillip didn’t know the name of the ambulance company or the hospital. As he returned home to Ohio, his story was brought into question.

Investigators in both Tennessee and Ohio have been trying to piece together the mystery.In an interview with WBBJ, Benton County Sheriff Kenny Christopher revealed a conversation between Phillip Snider and investigators.

“He says he put her body in plastic and disposed of her body over this bridge,” Christopher told the Jackson-based TV station.

The sheriff said Phillip claims his wife had cancer and died “somewhere in Kentucky.” He allegedly continued to Memphis, stayed the night and dumped her body in the Tennessee River on the way home.

Roberta Snider’s body has not been recovered.

Investigators said Phillip could face charges.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Officers said Brendan Dowling, 41, of Kennesaw, was walking on the trails behind Boling Park in Canton when he called 911 about 6:30 p.m. Sunday and said he was lost on Rampley Trail. He told authorities that his cellphone battery was dying, and it died during the call, police spokesman Pacer Cordry said.

Officers launched a search for Dowling and found his vehicle in Boling Park a short time later. At that point, Canton police as well as Cherokee fire and sheriff’s officials launched a wider search using ATVs and a police helicopter.

Dowling was found on a wooded trail about 4:30 a.m. wearing a T-shirt and shorts, Cordry said. He was evaluated by search and rescue personnel and later reunited with family.

"He's an avid runner according to his family, so he's used to running in the woods and trails like this, but obviously he got turned around tonight," Cordry said.

Authorities are still not sure how he got lost.

“We’re still waiting on those details,” Cordry said. “I believe he just entered into the trail and it got dark really quick on him. It’s easy to get turned around in these wooded areas out here.”
