  • Credit card debt reaches record $1TCredit card debt reaches record $1T

    (NBC News) — A just-released Federal Reserve report shows credit card debt has reached a record high at $1 trillion. Survey results from CreditCard.com found that those in debt are outright pessimistic about digging their way out. “About two thirds of American adults with debt aren’t convinced that they’re ever going to get out of it,” said Matt Schulz of CreditCard.com Schulz says their survey comes at the beginning of a year where debt could get worse because interest rates are rising and wages are still stagnant. But, Schulz says the most effective way out is a balance transfer credit card. Nerdwallet just released its top ten balance transfer cards, which Schulz says are attractive because they are interest-free. Even though balance transfer cards can be tricky, because of fees and strict deadlines, Schulz says they are still a god-send. Read more: http://nbcnews.to/2D7f8nP

  • Video: High tech cars revealed at international auto showVideo: High tech cars revealed at international auto show

    (NBC News) It is show time in the Motor City, with Detroit hosting the annual North American International Auto Show, featuring the latest, greatest, and future on four wheels. It opens to the public later in the week and there is so much to see, from sports cars to SUV’s, to second generation electric and new hybrids. The North American International Auto Show gives a “revealing” look into the car industry. A big part of what’s next is autonomous vehicles, with no steering wheel and no pedals. Analysts say these vehicles are not that far from the mainstream. “I feel like we’ve been talking about it like its a hazy concept it’s going to come sometime, but I think plans are going to start to solidify a lot more,” said Jessica Caldwell of Edmunds. High-tech has become a “driver” in the industry, with dash boards looking more like cell phones or tablets. Auto-makers have connected with drivers, selling more than 17 million vehicles each year for the last three years, the strongest three-year stretch in the history of the industry, with no plans of slowing down.

  • Video: 13 siblings chained in Calif. house of horrors; man who married couple speaks outVideo: 13 siblings chained in Calif. house of horrors; man who married couple speaks out

    Man who married the couple at The Elvis Chapel says he was shocked to see their photos on television and described them as a loving family. Watch the video from CNN: PERRIS, Calif. (AP/CNN) — A 17-year-old girl called police after escaping from her family’s home where she and her 12 brothers and sisters were locked up in filthy conditions, some so malnourished officers at first believed all were children even though seven are adults. The girl, who was so small officers initially believed she was only 10, called 911 and was met by police who interviewed her and then went to the family home in Perris, about 70 miles southeast of Los Angeles. They found several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark, foul-smelling surroundings, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.   The children, ages 2 to 29, “appeared to be malnourished and very dirty,” according to a press release announcing Sunday’s arrest of the parents. “The victims were provided with food and beverages after they claimed to be starving.” David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, each were held on $9 million bail and could face charges including torture and child endangerment. It wasn’t immediately known if they had attorneys. Louise Anna Turpin and David Allen Turpin (via NBC News, courtesy Riverside County Sheriff’s Department)   State Department of Education records show the family home has the same address as Sandcastle Day School, where David Turpin is listed as principal. In the 2016-17 school year it had an enrollment of six with one student in each of the fifth, sixth, eighth, ninth, 10th and 12th grades. Neighbors said they were stunned by the arrests. Andrew Santillan, who lives around the corner, heard about the case from a friend. “I had no idea this was going on,” he told the Press-Enterprise of Riverside. “I didn’t know there were kids in the house.” Other neighbors described the family as intensely private. A few years ago, Robert Perkins said he and his mother saw a few family members constructing a Nativity scene in the Turpins’ front yard. Perkins said he complimented them on it. “They didn’t say a word,” he said. The Turpins filed for bankruptcy in 2011, stating in court documents they owed between $100,000 and $500,000, The New York Times reported. At that time, Turpin worked as an engineer at Northrop Grumman and earned $140,000 annually and his wife was a homemaker, records showed. Their bankruptcy lawyer, Ivan Trahan, told the Times he never met the children but the couple “spoke about them highly.” “We remember them as a very nice couple,” Trahan said, adding that Louise Turpin told him the family loved Disneyland and visited often.

  • Georgia Southern campuses march together in MLK paradeGeorgia Southern campuses march together in MLK parade

    SAVANNAH (WSAV) – The annual Martin Luther King Parade is a day of celebration, peace and unity. “It’s wonderful to celebrate what Martin Luther King paved the way for us to do and that is to unify and to be here to celebrate the rights of all,” says Georgia Southern Armstrong campus student Jalen Shell. It’s that spirit of unity that brought 400 students from Georgia Southern’s Statesboro, Hinesville and the new Armstrong campus together to march in the parade. Statesboro Student Government President Dylan John says he’s glad to walk side by side with his fellow Eagles. “I think it is very special, especially with consolidation, this being one of our first events as student bodies to come out and meet up with our fellow brothers and sisters here in Savannah,” says John. With the recent consolidation, Georgia Southern is expected to become the third largest university in Georgia. The show of unity from the students comes in the face of recent controversies over the merger of Georgia Southern and Armstrong State University. But Chris Curtis, Georgia Southern’s Vice President Armstrong and Liberty Operations, says it’s time for the schools and students to move forward as one. “The theme is coming together,” says Curtis. “The turnout of students, the enthusiasm of students is strong evidence of this stronger university.” Although some students continue to wear their Armstrong colors, they all marched under one banner wearing shirts with a message: Still…I Rise. “The students that you see marching in the parade today are some of the best embodiments of the new Georgia Southern University” Georgia Southern Campuses March Together in MLK Parade Three Georgia Southern Campuses March Together in MLK Parade.

  • After more than 40 years, Navy hero’s headstone finally honors his bravery in WWIIAfter more than 40 years, Navy hero’s headstone finally honors his bravery in WWII

    BEAUFORT, Sc. (WSAV) – The Beaufort National Cemetery is a final resting place for about 20,000 soldiers who fought for our country– one being William Pinckney, whose headstone has never really reflected his sacrifice, until today. “He really never mentioned anything about his medals or awards or anything like that,” said Pinckney’s great nephew, William Mulligan. Everyone who knew him remembers him as a humble man. The Beaufort native joined the United States Navy in 1938. “African Americans in the 1930’s and 40’s, the first thing that they were assigned was to be a cook. So he was a cook aboard the USS Enterprise,” said Beaufort Historian and USCB professor, Larry Rowland. But no matter their assigned job, every sailor has a battle station. “He could be a cook during the day, but he could be a gunner during battle,” said Rowland, “His battle station was in the ammunition handling room of the USS Enterprise.” It was October 26, 1942 during the Battle of Guadalcanal, “the ship took several bomb hits. One of the bombs penetrated the deck and blew up in the ammunition handling room,” Rowland said. Of the 6 men in the room, only Pinckney and one other, Petty Officer Bagwell, survived the blast. “Petty Officer Bagwell tried to climb up the ladder out of the whole ammunition holding room, and the latter was on fire and he fell back and passed out,” Rowland said, “Well Bill Pinckney was the only other sailor alive down there and he picked up Petty Officer Bagwell, put him on his shoulders, climbed a burning ladder delivered him to go to the medical station on the hanger deck of the ship, and then went down, back in to get the other sailors out of there.” Pinckney was awarded the Navy Cross, the second highest recognition to the Medal of Honor. “He was only the second African-American in Navy history to receive that award,” Rowland said, “And he was only one of four African-Americans in all of World War II to win the Navy Cross.” But while working on a book, Rowland visited Pinckney’s grave at the Beaufort National Cemetery and noticed the honor was not on his headston.e “It just said William B. Pinckney with the correct dates and ‘Purple Heart,’ Rowland said. So he contacted the cemetery’s superintendent, Sonny Peppers, and within two week, “Navy Cross” was added. “It’s an honor to know that the Beaufort community sought to honor him by placing his award on his headstone,” Mulligan said, as he stood with another one of Pinckney’s great nephews and a neice. Neither Rowland nor Peppers know why the award wasn’t originally put on the headstone, Rowland says that’s a question that had to be answered in 1976. The Beaufort Rotary Club is holding an official ceremony for the community to honor Pinckney on February 10th at 11 a.m. at the Beaufort National Cemetery. When the humble Pinckney was asked about his service, “he frequently said, ‘Oh I was proud to serve,” Rowland said. Today, “Proud to Serve” is the motto for the USS William Pinckney guided missle cruiser in the United States Navy, currently deploying in the Pacific Ocean.

  • Teenager leads deputies to house where 12 family members locked upTeenager leads deputies to house where 12 family members locked up

    PERRIS, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say an emaciated teenager led deputies to a California home where her 12 brothers and sisters were locked up in filthy conditions, with some of them malnourished and chained to beds. Riverside County deputies arrested the parents Sunday at the home in Perris east of Los Angeles. Officials say the girl who managed to escape and call 911 was 17 but appeared to be about 10 because of her poor condition. Deputies assumed the 12 other children were juveniles but seven were actually adults, ranging from 18 to 29. A press release says 57-year old David Allen Turpin and 49-year old Louise Anna Turpin could face charges including torture and child endangerment. It wasn’t immediately known if they have attorneys.

    SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — Hundreds of local organizations, schools, churches and businesses bundled up and showed up Monday for the 39th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Observance Day Parade. Each year the MLK Observance Day Association celebrates Dr. King’s life on the national holiday with a parade through downtown Savannah. The city and surrounding communities line the streets of the city to enjoy the sights and sounds.

No segregation, everybody standing as one. That’s what he wanted. That’s what we doin’.” This year’s theme “Together We Win With Love For Humanity,” serves as a powerful reminder to reflect on Dr. King’s legacy locally and nationally. “The color doesn’t matter. To love everyone. It doesn’t matter who they are. Like it says in the Bible, ‘Do unto others as they should do unto you,” Lloyd said. Dr. Ann Levett, Savannah-Chatham County Public School Superintendent, and Al Wright, Public Affairs Consultant at Gulfstream, led Savannah’s parade as the 2018 Marshals. Our live coverage kicked off Monday morning with WSAV’s own Kim Gusby and Ben Katko hosting.

  • Olympic champ Simone Biles says she was abused by doctorOlympic champ Simone Biles says she was abused by doctor

    Olympic gymnastics champion Simone Biles says she is among the athletes sexually abused by a now-imprisoned former USA Gymnastics team doctor. Biles, who won four gold medals and five overall at the 2016 Olympics, released a statement via Twitter on Monday saying she is one of the “many survivors” that were abused by Larry Nassar. He was sentenced in December to 60 years in federal prison for possessing child pornography and is facing another 40 to 125 years in prison after pleading guilty to assaulting seven girls. Biles, now 20, called Nassar’s behavior “completely unacceptable, disgusting, and abusive, especially from someone whom I was told to trust.” Biles joins a list of high-profile gymnasts who have come out against Nassar, including six-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman, 2012 all-around champion Gabby Douglas and two-time Olympic medalist McKayla Maroney. Read Biles’ full statement below: Most of you know me as a happy, giggly, and energetic girl. But lately…I’ve felt a bit broken and the more I try to shut off the voice in my head the louder it screams. I am not afraid to tell my story anymore. I too am one of the many survivors that was sexually abused by Larry Nassar. Please believe me when I say it was a lot harder to first speak those words out loud than it is now to put them on paper. There are many reasons that I have been reluctant to share my story, but I know not it is not my fault. It is not normal to receive any type of treatment from a trusted team physician and refer to it horrifyingly as the “special” treatment. This behavior is completely unacceptable, disgusting, and abusive, especially coming from someone whom I was TOLD to trust. For too long I’ve asked myself, “Was I too naive? Was it my fault?” I now know the answer to those questions. No. No, it was not my fault. No, I will not and should not carry the guilt that belongs to Larry Nassar, USAG, and others. It is impossibly difficult to relive these experiences and it breaks my heart even more to think that as I work towards my dreams of competing in Tokyo 2020, I will have to continually return to the same training facility where I was abused. After hearing the brave stories of my friends and other survivors, I know that this horrific experience does not define me. I am much more than this. I am unique, smart, talented, motivated, and passionate. I have promised myself that my story will be much greater than this and I promise all of you that I will never give up. I will compete with all of my heart and soul every time I step into the gym. I love this sport too much and I have never been a quitter. I won’t let one man, and the others that enabled him, to steal my love and joy. We need to know why this was able to take place for so long and to so many of us. We need to make sure something like this never happens again. As I continue to work through the pain, I kindly ask everyone to respect my privacy. This is a process, and one that I need more time to work through. Nassar, who spent more than two decades as a physician at USA Gymnastics while also working at Michigan State University, has admitted sexually assaulting gymnasts, possessing child pornography and molesting girls who sought medical treatment.

  • NC 9-year-old shot while sleeping in her bedNC 9-year-old shot while sleeping in her bed

    STATESVILLE, N.C. (WCNC) — A 9-year-old from Statesville is fighting for her life after she was shot early Thursday morning while sleeping in her bed. Jovan Miller says his young cousin was shot while sleeping in her own bed. While everyone was asleep, Miller says nearly 50 shots were fired. “It’s really heartbreaking,” Miller explains. “I don’t think nobody with common sense would shoot up a house knowing children would be in there.” Neighbors say they heard gunfire around 4:00 a.m. While the area is known for being a rough neighborhood, Jovan Miller is making a plea for peace. “Stop, please stop, just stop, just stop,” he says, adding, “Something has to be done.” Miller says the girl’s father and uncle were also shot but are expected to be okay. So far there have been no arrests in this case, but police are actively investigating. A cash reward is being offered for information leading to the person responsible for shooting the 9-year-old. Anyone with information is urged to contact Statesville Police at 704-878-3406.

  • Where are we in local race relations?Where are we in local race relations?

    Richard Shinhoster of Savannah has been asked this question many times now in his life. “Are things better now in terms of race relations?” Shinhoster has lived through segregation and much more, but remains hopeful especially on the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. We talked to him last week about a controversial advertisement that used an African American boy to model a sweatshirt referring to “monkey in the jungle.” Just a few days later, it was reported that President Trump made unflattering comment about immigrants from Haiti and African Countries. While the president later denied he made the remark, some lawmakers said he did while some lawmakers came out in support of the president. It all serves as a need for more conversation, according to Shinhoster. “”Even though we’re looking at Dr. King’s birthday, there are just so many things we see in our society that just says that still disappoints us – I mean there are laws in place that tell us how we should treat each other but until our hearts have been changed, it’s going to be difficult to see the kind of change we want to see.” “It’s a matter of us having more of these kinds of conversations and more people bringing up this kind of topic and being willing to discuss it,” he told us. Shinhoster also indicated that his hope is that racial slurs become as uncomfortable for all Whites as they are for Blacks

    ISSAQUAH, Wash. (KING) — A woman in Washington state turned 101-years-old last week, and her family surprised her with a once in a lifetime experience. The secret sat inside box number 365 at the UPS Store in Issaquah Highlands, Washington. When Eileen Wilkinson opened that box, she found more than 100 birthday cards and letters sent from all over the country, and some even from as far away as Brazil and Germany. At 101, Eileen still appreciates the lost art of letter writing and does not go for all that email and texting stuff. “A letter is forever,” Eileen said. “You get that message, and you get how the person really feels. I think that’s why it’s important. I think it’s sad we get these emails, and they don’t have any emotion at all.” Eileen’s grandson, Mike Matthews, made it all happen through a social media campaign. Workers with UPS saw the posts and decided to throw her a party, complete with a cake and big banners emblazoned with Eileen’s smiling face. “It just makes me feel so good,” said Eileen. “How could this happen to me? I’m just an ordinary person!” Grandma Eileen said she plans to answer every one of those well-wishes, even if it takes her until her 102nd birthday. The box at the UPS Store is still open for another month. You can send your regards to: Eileen Wilkinson co/ The UPS Store Box #365 1567 Highlands Dr. NE Suite 110 Issaquah, WA 98029

  • The Latest: Worker who hit false missile alert is reassignedThe Latest: Worker who hit false missile alert is reassigned

    HONOLULU (AP) – The Latest on Hawaii’s false alert about an incoming ballistic missile (all times local): 9:30 a.m. Hawaii officials say an employee has been reassigned after mistakenly hitting the live alert button of the state’s missile warning system, creating a wave of panic. Hawaii Emergency Management Agency spokesman Richard Rapoza said in an email Monday that the worker has been temporarily moved to a job without access to the system amid an internal investigation. He says no other personnel changes have been made. The agency has said that it changed protocols to require that two people send an alert and made it easier to cancel a false alarm – a process that took nearly 40 minutes Saturday. The blunder caused more than a million people in Hawaii to fear that they were about to be struck by a nuclear missile. ___ 8 p.m. For many Hawaii residents, the ballistic missile false alarm was a preparedness wakeup call. State officials have been trying to tell residents for months that if there is a missile headed for the islands, there will be little time to do much more than to get inside, stay inside and stay tuned. But that message didn’t seem to sink in until after the false alarm. Residents and tourists remained rattled Sunday, a day after the mistaken alert was blasted out to cellphones across the islands with a warning to seek immediate shelter. The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission says it appears the Hawaii government didn’t have reasonable safeguards in place that would have prevented the transmission of a false alert. ___ 3:30 p.m. President Donald Trump says the federal government will “get involved” with Hawaii following the false alarm about an incoming missile strike on the island state. Trump says what happened Saturday “was a state thing.” He did not describe the level of federal involvement he envisions, but the Federal Communications Commission has opened an investigation. Hawaii residents received cellphone alerts Saturday warning of an incoming ballistic missile strike. State officials later said someone doing a routine test during a shift change at the Emergency Management Agency mistakenly hit the live alert button. Hawaii’s governor has apologized. Speaking of Hawaii officials, Trump said “I love that they took responsibility.” He said “they took full responsibility but we’re going to get involved.” Trump also said he hopes something like that doesn’t happen again. ___ 8:30 a.m. The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission says it appears the government of Hawaii didn’t have reasonable safeguards in place that would have prevented the transmission of a false alert about an imminent missile strike. Ajit Pai said in a statement Sunday an FCC investigation is well under way into the false alert that sounded on hundreds of thousands of cellphones across Hawaii. Officials are gathering facts about how Saturday’s false alert was issued. Pai says information collected so far shows it appears Hawaii didn’t have safeguards or process controls in place. Hawaii’s emergency management agency’s administrator said he took responsibility for the mistake. The state adjutant general said a written report would be prepared. State lawmakers announced they would hold a hearing next Friday. ___ 5 a.m. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says people should trust government alert systems and the recent blunder in Hawaii was just a “very unfortunate mistake.” Nielsen spoke on “Fox News Sunday” on Sunday morning about the emergency alert warning of an imminent missile strike that sounded on hundreds of thousands of cellphones Saturday morning. A second alert saying there was no missile didn’t come for nearly 40 minutes. Nielsen said she would hate for anybody not to abide by government warnings. She said the alerts are vital and doesn’t want anyone to “draw the wrong conclusion.” Hawaii’s emergency management agency’s administrator said he took responsibility for the mistake. The state adjutant general said a written report would be prepared. State lawmakers announced they would hold a hearing next Friday. ___ 8 p.m. Hawaii residents were left shaken by the second recent blunder in Hawaii’s planning for a possible North Korean nuclear attack. An emergency alert warning of an imminent missile strike sounded on hundreds of thousands of cellphones. A second alert saying there was no missile didn’t come for nearly 40 minutes. The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency’s administrator, Vern Miyagi, said he took responsibility for the mistake. The state also had problems last month when it reintroduced the Cold War-era warning siren tests. The state adjutant general, Maj. Gen. Joe Logan, said a written report would be prepared. State lawmakers announced they would hold a hearing next Friday. Hawaii House Speaker Scott Saiki said the system Hawaii residents have been told to rely on failed miserably.

  • 6-year-old Florida boy dies of rabies contracted from a bat6-year-old Florida boy dies of rabies contracted from a bat

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – A 6-year-old Florida boy has died from rabies he contracted after being scratched by an infected bat. The father of Ryker Roque told NBC that the boy died Sunday at an Orlando hospital. Father Henry Roque said he had found a sick bat, put it in a bucket and told his son not to touch it, but he did and was scratched. He said he washed the wound thoroughly but didn’t take the boy to the hospital because he cried when he was told he would get shots. About a week later the boy developed numb fingers and a headache and his parents took him for hospital treatment. Rabies is almost always fatal once symptoms develop. A vaccine is given after a wound but before symptoms almost always prevent the disease.

    WASHINGTON (AP) – Martin Luther King Jr.’s eldest son is calling out President Donald Trump following accusations the president used a vulgarity to describe African countries during a meeting last week and expressed a preference for immigrants from countries like Norway. Martin Luther King III spoke in Washington on Monday, the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. King says: “When a president insists that our nation needs more citizens from white states like Norway, I don’t even think we need to spend any time even talking about what it says and what it is.” He says: “We got to find a way to work on this man’s heart.” Referring to former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, King added: “George Wallace was a staunch racist and we worked on his heart and ultimately George Wallace transformed.”
