May you have a wonderful and safe New Year!
Disney is picking up the tab for the miners, their rescuers and their immediate families during a six-night stay -- January 27 to February 2. Each family will get a $500 gift card. The group will serve as honorary Grand Marshals of a Main Street U.S.A. parade.
The printable coupons, available online at DisneyParks.com/blog, are good for 30 percent off (excluding alcohol) at any of 15 quick-service restaurants in Disney World's four theme parks. But the meals must be purchased before noon or between 3 and 4:30 p.m.
The remodeled entrance will echo the design of the legendary Pan Pacific Auditorium, and look a lot like the gate at Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park in Florida.
That fits with the park's re-theming, which is supposed to reflect back on Southern California in the 1930s, after Walt Disney arrived and started his studio.
The standoff that resulted in suicide ended at 2:20 a.m. Friday when the SWAT team entered the home of Craig Foushee, 52, and found him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, said spokewoman Twis Lizasuain of the Osceola County Sheriff's Office.
The incident began Wednesday when authorities received a report of a distraught man with a gun, and Foushee and authorities came in contact through his cell phone, police said. Foushee was undergoing a separation with his wife, with whom he has children, Lizasuain said.
Osceola County police responded Monday to an emergency call at an apartment building in Celebration, Florida, after speaking with a neighbor who said she found 58-year-old Matteo Giovanditto dead in his home, according to police spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain.
Osceola police classified the death as a homicide, based on evidence found at the scene, according to a police statement. The victim's car was found Tuesday in Kissimmee, Florida, about 10 miles east of Celebration.
