In a world of negative, downer and sometimes disastrous news, it’s good to get a visit from Skippy the Good News Hound! Let’s see what he’s dug up for us today…
A bunch of people helped cops save a moose that fell through the ice on a river in Fairbanks, Alaska. It took six people pulling at once to hoist the beast from the water. Then they split a six-pack of Moosehead maybe?
A barbershop owner in Cincinnati named Vernon Jackson is in the news, because he still goes to work on his day off . . . to do free haircuts for kids with special needs. No one else is allowed in the store, in order to be sure the kids get his full attention. This is especially helpful for kids who are sensitive to sound, or get nervous around groups. He’s been doing it since 2021 with the help of donations. Word is he’s trying to expand the program and help barbershops in other cities do it too.
And finally, buying shoes for growing kids is expensive. So a guy in India invented a new type of shoe for little kids that expands as their feet get bigger. The brand is called Aretto. (Uh-REE-toe) Each size can stretch to fit two additional sizes. He just launched the company last year, so they’re only available in India for now. But business is booming, and it could help parents save a lot of money.
Until next time, that’s it for the Good News Hound Report! Now who wants a nice belly-rub?
