Simple act of kindness: student pays off school lunch debt

Simple act of kindness: student pays off school lunch debt You hear a lot about bullying and other social problems in schools. But it just takes one student to make a difference. Today, we honor third grader Cayden Taipalus as Detroit 2020 Person of the Week. The 8-year-old is a student at Challenger Elementary in Howell. Cayden has been collecting donations and taking bottles back to help pay off school lunch debt for some of the students at his elementary school. Cayden first had the idea for the cause when he witnessed one of his friends get denied a hot lunch because he didn't have enough money on his account. If students don't have money, the school will provide an alternate lunch, but Cayden knows that every student feels better when they have a few dollars in their lunch account.

Pay child support for a kid that is not yours or go to jail
 
02:02
DETROIT (WXYZ) - The state told a Detroit man: Pay child support for a kid that is not yours or go to jail! On Friday, 7 Action News went with him as he turned himself in at the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice. “I stayed up all night. Couldn’t sleep thinking about it,” said Carnell Alexander. Carnell says no matter what the state orders, he won’t pay child support for a child he doesn’t know and that DNA tests prove isn’t his. “I haven’t even had a chance to speak to him except for one time when we took a DNA test,” said Carnell. This is a case that started in the late eighties. An ex-girlfriend of Carnell’s had a baby. She needed help providing for the child. She was told that in order to get welfare she had to name a dad on paperwork. She put down Carnell’s name. The state then started a paternity case against Carnell to collect money for the assistance provided. A process server turned in paperwork saying Carnell was given notice at a house in Highland Park. It is something the Michigan Department of Corrections says is impossible. At the time, Carnell was incarcerated for a crime he committed as a young man. Carnell says he would find out about the paternity action in 1991 when he was arrested for being a deadbeat dad during a traffic stop. He has been fighting it since.

Dog Put to Sleep, Then Wakes Up -- Animal Euthanasia Gone Wrong
 
02:52
Dog put down and then wakes up... Matt Olivarez of Redford, Michigan had to do what every animal owner dreads – he had to put his dog to sleep. Now he may have to do it all over again. Last Saturday, Matt took his 10-year-old Rottweiler, Mia, to the vet. Mia has spinal problems and is barely able to walk. Matt’s vet recommended the family dog be put down because nothing could be done to ease her pain. Matt says he watched as his beloved Mia was given two shots. Moments later Mia closed her eyes and it appeared she was gone. Matt says the vet declared her deceased. Because Mia is so important to his wife and two young children, Matt brought the dog home so the family could give her a burial. But the next morning Matt went into the garage where he put Mia’s body and she was awake. Now Matt is faced with a gut-wrenching decision – does he go back to the vet and put the dog down again. The vet’s office where the procedure was performed. We were told there would be no comment until it could be verified that it was Mia that survived the shots.

High school football manager with Down syndrome scores TD, mother with terminal illness watches
 
02:12
Robby Heil, a senior with Down syndrome, has been an integral part of Novi Wildcat athletics for the last four years. "You mean a lot to this team, I'm serious you're a big part of this," fellow senior Anthony D'annibale said on the sideline to Robby, right before his big moment. And tonight they proved it. In the second quarter against South Lyon East, play was suspended, as Robby, the water boy, entered the game. Just like they practiced, Robby got the hand off, and saw nothing but green in front of him. Touchdown, Wildcats. But the scene on the sidelines is what takes your breath away. Robby's mother, Debbie, who is terminally ill with bone cancer, got to see her little boy live his dream. This type of joy, is overwhelming.
