Disney workers' union says $10 minimum wage doesn't make the magic happen

Citing an increasing cost of living and relatively stagnant pay, workers at Disney parks in Central Florida are working with the company to negotiate a higher minimum wage.

>> Read more trending news

Travis Joyner is a driver at Animal Kingdom’s safari ride, one of the park’s most popular attractions.

He enjoys his job, but has a hard time making ends meet while being paid less than $12 an hour.

“My goal is to eventually make enough money that I don’t have to decide which bill gets paid this month and which one doesn’t,” Joyner said.

Joyner and 36,000 other Disney employees are represented by a union, which negotiated a minimum wage of $10 for cast members in 2014.

The contract allows for the union to reopen wage talks in 2017.

“It’s very difficult to make ends meet in a town where rent continues to go up and wages have stayed fairly stagnant,” union president Eric Clinton said.

The two sides have until October to come to an agreement, which the company said would be fair all around.

“We plan to put forth an overall employment package that is fair and equitable for the cast and the company,” Walt Disney World Resort Vice President Jacquee Wahler said in a media statement.

Employees such as Belinda Osorio, who works as a housekeeper for Disney, hope the new agreement will give them a financial boost that allows them to keep doing the jobs they love.

“We work so hard to make magic for all these people, and we need Disney to make magic for their cast members,” Osorio said.

Oklahoma teacher captures worldwide attention, raises thousands after panhandling

A teacher’s act to get Oklahoma lawmakers’ attention has now been recognized worldwide.

>> Read more trending news

Teresa Danks is a third-grade teacher in the Tulsa Public Schools system.

As a result of serious education budget cuts, Danks said she is now spending between $2,000 and $3,000 of her $35,000 salary on supplies for her students.

Last week, Danks said she decided to ask the public for help after she learned lawmakers weren’t going to help her.

In six minutes Tuesday, the veteran teacher made $55 standing on a street corner asking for money, more than double what she makes per hour in the classroom.

The panhandling teacher” is now getting donations from places near and far after FOX23 broke the story that she was begging for money so that she could buy school supplies for her students.

On Monday, Danks met with a family from Ohio who believes in and wants to donate to her cause.

Trisha Bailey lives near Cincinnati and is an aspiring teacher. She says she saw our story on a national news segment and immediately contacted Danks.

Bailey says she believes in the message that Danks is trying to send.

Her family is visiting Oklahoma this week, so she asked Danks if they could meet in person.

Bailey handed over $100 from her family to help with the cause.

As Danks headed to New York City for interviews, she said that she is thinking about now setting up a foundation. 

Her GoFundMe page now has more than $4,000.

Lacking Social Security income, Pulse nightclub shooter's widow asks court for defense funds

In several documents filed and unsealed Monday in a federal court in Orlando, new details have come to light in the case against the widow of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.

>> Read more trending news

Noor Salman, who is being charged with helping her husband plan and carry out the Pulse attack -- which left 49 dead and dozens injured -- has been in jail since being arrested in California on Jan. 16.

In a document filed under seal on Friday and unsealed Monday, Salman’s attorneys said she had been informed on July 10, that she would no longer receive Social Security payments.

Due to her lack of income, Salman asked the court to approve funding for a computer forensics expert.

As part of the filing, Salman’s attorneys also asked for an eight-week extension for the expert to complete a report on data obtained by law enforcement.

The data includes forensic images of three computers, four cellphones, an Apple iPad Mini, flash drives, 12 computer disks and a 38,000-page PDF file containing the complete contents of Salman’s Facebook account.

The deadline for the expert report is Aug. 1, which isn’t enough time, Salman’s attorneys argued, pointing out that prosecutors had the information for more than seven months.

The defense expert received the data on June 5, and reported back to Salman’s attorneys on June 15, that it would take him about 250 hours to process it all and complete his report.

The Friday filing sought the funds to pay computer forensics expert Joshua Horowitz and the extra time needed for him to complete his analysis.

The court filing did not say how much Horowitz would be paid.

The judge approved the extension Monday and ordered the defense to give status updates every 30 days once the funding for Horowitz's work is approved.

A final report on the computer forensics analysis was ordered to be filed no more than 60 days after the funding is approved.

The time and funds are necessary for Salman’s defense and without them, her attorneys said they would not be able to defend her appropriately.

“Only allowing for (now) less than two weeks for forensic review of the electronic discovery is impossible,” Friday’s filing said.

Eclipse could drain North Carolina solar farm of energy

Duke Energy built the biggest solar farm in the Charlotte, North Carolina area in rural Union County, and it just went online in April.

>> Read more trending news

The solar eclipse on Aug. 21 could affect the solar farm, which spans 500 acres and supplies power to customers in Monroe.

The nearly full eclipse will bring that energy production to a near-halt, at a time when Duke Energy is relying on it to keep power flowing.

“Our engineers have studied how we manage that drop in power,” said Randy Wheeless, with Duke Energy.

Losing the sun for that moment will be costly for the company, he said.

“About 1,500 megawatts, which is about two gas power plants,” Wheeless said. “So a lot of drop-off quickly, and then it will ramp back up.”

Duke Energy engineers have been working on their plan to transfer power from other areas to avoid an interruption.

Wheeless said North Carolina is second in the country, behind California, when it comes to solar energy production.

Garth Brooks reveals sex of fans’ baby, offers to pay for college during concert

Garth Brooks participated in a special moment with one couple during his Friday tour stop at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

When Brooks noticed the couple’s poster, he told them to come toward the stage. They made their way to the front and handed him a sealed envelope containing the baby’s sex.

“You don’t know, and it’s in here?” Garth asked, as he took the envelope from the expecting wife. To his surprise, the couple promised that they’d name their baby Brooks no matter the outcome.

“All of the sudden I’m nervous,” the father of three said. Brooks started to get teary-eyed when he opened up the envelope and realized the two are having a baby girl.

“I’ve got to tell you that I’m extremely happy for you because I have three of these,” Brooks said. “Now you tell them that they don’t need some stinking boy to tell them how cool they are.”

The singer then made an offer that made the moment even more special.

“We’ll make a deal,” he said, “If I am still alive when Brooks goes to college, we’ll pay for her college.”

Report: Dog bites 3-year-old at Florida restaurant

A family visiting from Louisville, Kentucky, said their 3-year-old son was badly bitten by a dog at a Neptune Beach, Florida, restaurant Wednesday.

The boy had a cut on his lip and scratches on his face after the dog bit him at Craft Pizza Co. on July 19.

The owner confirmed that the boy was on the outside patio when the dog bit him.

>> Read more trending news

A family member posted a review of the restaurant and photo of the boy’s injuries on TripAdvisor. The family member, who appears to be a parent of the boy, said while they were leaving the restaurant, the child asked a man if he could pet his dog.

According to the post, the dog turned and bit the boy in the face. It left scratches and puncture wounds inside his lip, the family said in the post.

“I immediately grabbed my screaming 3 year old and took him from the place,” the post said. Mean while (sic) as I was trying to wipe the blood from my sons face they actually brought the dog a bowl of water. Really!!!??? He just bit my 3 year old.”

The post said the boy spent a day in the emergency room.

The customer complained that when the family decided to go back and get the dog owner’s information, the restaurant owner was talking to the dog owner. 

According to the parent who wrote the TripAdvisor post, the restaurant owner and pet owner are friends.

“Nothing was offered to us outside of some ice and a napkin,” according to the parent. “I actually requested the owner to contact me. Nothing.”

The restaurant has a dog dining permit, which is required by the city of Neptune Beach if a restaurant wants to allow dogs on the outdoor portion.

The owner of Craft Pizza Co. said he is sorry about the incident. He said the man regularly brings his dog and it has never been aggressive before.

The owner told us the family and the dog owner exchanged contact information for insurance purposes.

He said he is considering no longer allowing dogs at his restaurants because of the liability.

City of Neptune Beach officials said the city has the right to revoke a restaurant’s dog dining permit depending on the infraction.

“It would probably depend in the infraction, but we do have the right to take it away immediately” Amanda Askew, deputy manager for Neptune Beach, said. “We do not need a police report to revoke any permit.”

The city has never revoked a permit since the ordinance was passed in Neptune Beach in 2008, Askew said.

Police said they received an anonymous tip about the incident, but a complainant never came forward. Animal control officers are trying to get in contact with the family members to learn if they want to file a report.

'My Friend Cayla' doll could give strangers access to your child, investigation finds

The “My Friend Cayla" doll gives anyone with a Bluetooth-enabled phone access to your child — and consumer groups want the federal government to pull the popular toy from store shelves.

>> Read more trending news

Using an app, parents can have entire conversations with their children through the doll — but so could strangers.

That's why some people say the doll could open the door for a child predator. Privacy concerns led Germany to ban the sale of the doll, which is made in the United States.

An attorney filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission to pull the doll from shelves in the United States.

“If the doll is turned on, [anyone] can see that the doll (is) available and could pair with it on their phone using Bluetooth,” said attorney Chris Laughlin, who filed the complaint.

An investigation by WJAX-TV found that anyone within 90 feet of the doll can easily access it with Bluetooth. You can say anything — and it’ll come out through the speaker.

Strangers can have a two-way conversation with your kid — and all they will need is a phones.

Robin Luaway is among those who are concerned about the doll.

“We should go back to how it was,” Luaway said. “Play outside."

Cayla’s terms of service warns that it cannot guarantee that the Cayla app will be free of content that you might consider unacceptable. The company says its safeguards do not replace parental supervision.

But when you read Cayla’s terms of service on its website, it clearly says that they “will use information collected about you for a variety of business purposes."

The FTC has not yet responded to the attorney's complaint.

WJAX-TV reached out to Cayla's software company for a comment on the allegations in the FTC complaint, but the company has not responded.

Snopes.com co-founder pleas for help, says the website may shut down for good

Snopes.com, which bills itself as “one of the Internet’s oldest and most popular fact-checking sites,” is in dire financial straits and hopes to raise $500,000 it says is needed to keep the site afloat, according to a GoFundMe linked to by Snopes.

>> Read more trending news

Snopes’ GoFundMe says the site has been “cut off from our historic source of advertising income.” Co-founder David Mikkelson founded the site with his then-wife Barbara Mikkelson in 1994, according to the page, incorporating Bardav, Inc. — a name using a combination of their first names — as a company to control the site.

>> RELATED: Who will save us from political lies? Not the online fact-checkers

The debt stems from a legal battle between Bardav, now managed exclusively by David Mikkelson, and a web services provider, Proper Media, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. When David and Barbara Mikkelson divorced in 2016, Barbara left Bardev, Inc. and sold her 50 percent equity interest in Snopes to Proper Media.

David Mikkelson says that while he maintains control of the site’s content, he says the site is otherwise held “hostage” by the media company, despite the fact that he’s attempted to “end” the contract with them:

[The] contractual relationship ended earlier this year, but the vendor will not acknowledge the change in contractual status and continues to essentially hold the Snopes.com web site hostage. Although we maintain editorial control (for now), the vendor will not relinquish the site’s hosting to our control, so we cannot modify the site, develop it, or — most crucially — place advertising on it. The vendor continues to insert their own ads and has been withholding the advertising revenue from us.

The GoFundMe states that money raised will go to “continue operating the site and paying our staff (not to mention covering our legal fees).”

Bardav, Inc. was sued by Proper Media this year, shortly after Mikkelson moved to end the contract Bardav, Inc. held with Proper Media. Proper Media claims that they’re the victims of “a lengthy scheme of concealment and subterfuge to gain control of the company and to drain its profits.”

The story of Snopes is deeply tied into the Mikkelson’s divorce, which accounts say was exacerbated by managing the site.

A Daily Mail investigation says that after he and Barbara split in 2015, David Mikkelson married a former escort and porn actress who he promptly hired to work for Snopes.

Barbara claims David embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay for exotic trips and prostitutes and insisted on a raise of $120,000, giving himself a $360,000 annual salary. David Mikkelson says his ex-wife took millions of dollars from their joint account to buy property in Las Vegas.

They settled their divorce in 2015 after initially struggling to agree on an arbiter, according to the Mail.

The Ann Arbor resident, whose name was not released pending his arraignment, was spotted around 3 p.m. Sunday at Petoskey State Park, the Petoskey Review-News reported.

Troopers said the man might have taken LSD before authorities were called.

The man screamed at and threatened a trooper who tried to arrest him, WWTV reported, but he eventually calmed down and authorities apprehended him. Officials took him to a hospital for treatment of the injuries he suffered when he jumped into the parking lot, according to WWTV.

Troopers arrested the man on multiple charges, including indecent exposure and obscene conduct. Authorities said he might face additional charges, pending the results of a blood analysis, according to the News-Review.

Maria Menounos prayed for her own cancer diagnosis during her mother's cancer battle

Maria Menounos is continuing to open up about her brain tumor diagnosis.

>> Read more trending news

Menounos revealed she felt frustrated after her mother’s stage IV brain cancer diagnosis and tried to reckon with a higher power as she watched her mother’s battle.

“I was getting really frustrated because she wasn’t fighting and she was doing worse,” Menounos said of her mother in an interview on “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly.” “I just remember praying and just saying, ‘God, I wish you gave this to me because I have the fight and I have the will to beat this stuff. She doesn’t.’ And, uh, be careful what you wish for.”

Shortly after her mother, Litsa Menounos underwent surgery, Menounos said she started experiencing headaches and dizziness and had a difficult time reading the teleprompters at work. When she realized she was having symptoms similar to her mother, she made an appointment with her doctor.

“He said, ‘I’m so sorry I have to tell you this because I know that you’re going through a lot with your mom, but you have a brain tumor. It’s called a meningioma, and you need to schedule an appointment with a neurosurgeon right away,’” Menounos said. “And so, I was like, ‘OK.’ I started kind of chuckling because at that point it’s like, ‘This is a joke. How does this happen?'”

Menounos kept the diagnosis a secret from friends and family, not telling them until three days before her own surgery.

“It’s like you’re getting a punch in the face, or a hammer,” Litsa Menounos said of her reaction. “You cannot process that. That was the worst thing for me. [My cancer] didn’t matter, honestly.”

Menounos’ tumor was benign and now that she is back on her feet, the mother and daughter are focused on Litsa’s health.

“I just hope that we can make her one of the long-term survivors because I’m worried about her,” Menounos said through tears. “Nobody ever wants to lose their mom. I pray this next MRI is good so that we can all just take a breath, and I have some time to not worry.”

Fake street signs warn Minnesota residents of 'easily startled' police

At least two fake street signs have popped up in Minneapolis warning residents to beware of “easily startled” police. 

>> Read more trending news

The signs show an illustration of a police officer firing two guns in different directions.

Photos of the signs began circulating on social media over the weekend, one week after Justine Damond, an unarmed woman, was shot and killed by Minneapolis police after she called 911 to report a suspected crime in her neighborhood.

Just a couple of weeks before that, a Minneapolis police officer shot two dogs in their own backyard, seriously injuring the family pets, which are also doctor-prescribed emotional support animals.

Last year, Philando Castile, a black motorist and elementary school cafeteria manager, was killed in the city by a police officer during a routine traffic stop while Castile’s girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter watched.

“There’s a side of truth to the sign,” one Minnesota resident said, according to the Star Tribune. “That tells you there is something wrong with the system.”

“I think it’s great that it’s getting attention,” another resident told the Tribune.

5 places that are nearly impossible to visit

You can try, but you’ll need a little skill and a lot of luck to visit these five places:

Surtsey, Iceland

This island was created in the 1960s by earthquakes. Only scientists studying Surtsey’s unique flora and fauna are allowed to visit.

Area 51, Nevada, United States

This highly classified base has led Americans to speculate on proof of extraterrestrial life. The highway near Area 51 has become a haven for UFO enthusiasts.

St. Catherine’s Monastery, Egypt

St. Catherine’s was founded in the sixth century. According to legend, Moses spoke to God in the form of a burning bush at the site of its chapel.

The monastery was closed to visitors after a policeman was killed there in 2017.

Mount Athos, Greece

Select male visitors are permitted to visit this site, where Eastern Orthodox monks have lived for centuries. But women are never allowed inside.

Nurses accused of stealing patients' pain pills for themselves

Two Tennessee nurses are facing charges after state investigators said they diverted prescription pain pills away from their patients and to themselves instead for more than a year.

>> Read more trending news

The nurses, identified as Sarah Thacker, 31, and Kimberly Click, 42, came to the attention of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in February after special agents got a pair of tips from the Tennessee Department of Health, authorities said.

Investigators were told on Feb. 8 that Thacker, a registered nurse at the Johnson City Medical Center and Franklin Woods Hospital, was suspected of using her job to get hydrocodone pills prescribed to patients. Authorities believe she started diverting the pills in September 2015 and continued until at least January 2017.

Later that month, on Feb. 27, the health department again contacted TBI to report that Click, a registered nurse at the John Medical Center, was also suspected of fraudulently obtaining pills for her personal use, according to authorities.

A grand jury came back with indictments on July 12 for both women, who turned themselves in over the weekend, TBI said.

Thacker was charged with dozen counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. Click was arrested on 33 counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

Stubbs the cat, honorary mayor of Alaska town, dies

Stubbs the cat, mayor of a small town in Alaska, has died at age 20, the cat’s owners announced Saturday.

The town has no human mayor. The Associated Press reported that Stubbs was elected to the position in 1998 in a write-in campaign in Talkeetna, Alaska.

Lately, the elderly cat had been keeping close to home, but in his younger years, he was known as a cat-about-town -- usually meowing up a storm at Nagley’s General Store. 

KTVA reported that in 2013, Stubb survived a dog attack. In 2016, he was the subject of a false report of his death.

“Stubbs lived for 20 years and 3 months. He was a trooper until the very last day of his life; meowing at us throughout the day to pet him or to come sit on the bed with him and let him snuggle and purr for hours in our lap,” the family said in a statement Saturday. “Thank you, Stubbs, for coming into our lives for the past 31 months; you are a remarkable cat and we will dearly miss you. We loved the time we were allowed to spend with you.”

According to Stubb’s owners, another kitten in might be ready to take up the mayoral mantle.

“Amazingly, Denali has the exact personality as Stubbs,” the family wrote of the kitten. “He loves the attention. He’s like a little puppy when he’s around people. We couldn’t have asked for a better understudy than Denali — he really has followed in Stubbs’ paw prints in just about everything.”
