“Michelle and I send our condolences to the family of Ernie Banks, and to every Chicagoan and baseball fan who loved him,” the statement reads. “Ernie came up through the Negro Leagues, making $7 a day. He became the first African-American to play for the Chicago Cubs, and [his was] the first number the team retired. Along the way, he became known as much for his 512 home runs and back-to-back National League MVPs as for his cheer, his optimism, and his love of the game.

Actor Mark Wahlberg has petitioned the state of Massachusetts to be pardoned for crimes he committed when he was 16.
Wahlberg was arrested in 1988 for attacking two Vietnamese men while trying to steal beer, reports The Associated Press.

Online bullying, also called cyberbullying, has become a widespread issue. As you may recall, a FindLaw survey in 2014 found that nearly one in 12 children had been the victim of online bullying.
What can parents do about this? One Minnesota dad whose daughter was being bullied over Snapchat talked to the bullies’ father, filed a police report, and then fought back by posting the bullies’ (and their father’s) messages on YouTube, reports Minnesota Public Radio. Publicity following the release of the video spurred the child’s school to launch an investigation and also led the father of the alleged bullies to lose his job.
If your child is being bullied online, how and to whom should you report it? Here are a
