Florida homeowners to split more than $52M after citrus canker battle 

A 17-year legal fight in Florida over citrus canker is over.

>> Read more trending news

More than 84,000 homeowners in South Florida who had healthy citrus trees cut down by the state are going to get paid for their losses.

The homeowners will split more than $52 million in compensation. That money was allocated in the budget approved by Gov. Rick Scott on Friday.

Residents filed suit after they said their rights were being violated.

In 2000, the state ordered the destruction of even healthy citrus trees within 1,900 feet of an infected tree, in a last-ditch attempt to battle contamination. This was done with or without the owner's permission.

Canker is a bacterial disease that blemishes a tree's fruit and can cause it to drop prematurely, although fruit that ripens can still be squeezed for juice, which is the primary use of Florida's commercial citrus crop.

Canker reappeared in Florida in 1986 and was spread by the wind.

"This is a shocker for us because this is a quiet neighborhood," said neighbor Matthew Cook.

Cook saidhe came home from church and saw police in front of his neighbor's home.

He was horrified to learn that police believe home intruders shot a husband in front of his family in the middle of the afternoon.

"I would be scared, I would be worrying about my family, and say just whatever you get want, just don’t hurt us," Cook said.

Police said two men in bright construction or traffic vests got into the home without any obvious signs of forced entry.

The victim has been identified as Miguel Osorio, 44. 

Neighbors said they heard multiple gunshots then screams from the women in the house.

Cook said he didn't know the man who died but said this robbery never should have turned deadly.

"I understand he was scared and everything, but they didn't have to shoot him," he said.

Police said the suspects got into a car that already had a driver inside of it. The car is described as a gold or tan SUV.

2 Florida airmen among 7 killed in Iraq helicopter crash

Two Florida airmen were among seven killed in a helicopter crash Thursday in Iraq.

Master Sgt. William R. Posch, 36, of Indialantic, Florida, and Staff Sgt. Carl P. Enis, 31, of Tallahassee belonged to the 308th Rescue Squadron out of Patrick Air Force Base.

They were on a HH-60 Pave Hawk with five other airmen when it crashed Thursday in western Iraq.

Enis and Posch were serving in combat roles, as they had before on multiple overseas deployments during their Air Force careers, according to a release from the 920th Rescue Wing.

Posch was an 18-year Air Force veteran who was recently part of a rescue mission at sea to save two German sailors whose sailboat caught fire last July.

He deployed for multiple rescue missions in Texas during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Posch's family and friends shared photos of him on social media, saying he was a father.

Four airmen assigned to the 106th Rescue Wing at the Francis S. Gabreski Air National Guard Base, New York, were also killed:

  • Capt. Andreas B. O'Keeffe, 37, of Center Moriches, New York.
  • Capt. Christopher T. Zanetis, 37, of Long Island City, New York.
  • Master Sgt. Christopher J. Raguso, 39, of Commack, New York.
  • Staff Sgt. Dashan J. Briggs, 30, of Port Jefferson Station, New York.

Capt. Mark K. Weber, 29, of Colorado Springs, was also killed in the crash. He was assigned to the 38th Rescue Squadron at Moody Air Force Base, Georgia.

The Pave Hawk went down at 6:45 p.m. Thursday near the town of Qaim in Anbar Province near the Syrian border.

The helicopter was on a routine flight between two towns, according to officials quoted by The Associated Press and Stars and Stripes.

Gov. Rick Scott released a statement about the airmen's deaths on Sunday: 

"The loss of Master Sgt. William R. Posch, Staff Sgt. Carl Enis and their fellow armed service members is devastating. The deaths of these brave men serve as a solemn reminder of the sacrifice and commitment made by our nation’s military to secure and protect the freedom we all cherish as Americans. Ann and I know Staff Sgt. Enis’ family personally, and we grieve with them today. I ask that every Floridian pause to remember Master Sgt. William R. Posch and Staff Sgt. Enis and all of those lost in this tragedy.”

Woman, 70, treks through snow 5 miles after she can’t get taxi after night shift

She had a job to do and recent snowfall wasn’t going to stop her from getting home after a long day at work.

A woman, known only as Pam, was recently seen walking home while a news crew in Bradford, England, was doing a story, Metro reported.

>> Read more trending news 

As it turned out, Pam was taking a long walk home, 5 miles in snow and wind, after working the night shift caring for three men who have learning disabilities. 

Pam is 70 years old.

She told Corrine Wheatley, the reporter with the BBC who recorded Pam’s trip, “You can’t leave them on their own. You’ve got a duty of care really. You’ve got to do it, even at 70!”

Pam told Wheatley that only one driver stopped during her walk, but didn’t offer her a ride. They stopped to ask Pam to move to the other side of the road, Metro reported. Wheatley, however, was more chivalrous, taking Pam as close to her home as she could before the snow got too deep for her car, Metro reported.

Home renovation reveals artifacts from 1800s

While Boston is very rich in history and culture, most people don't expect to find artifacts dating from the 1800s inside the walls of their homes.

>> Read more trending news 

Nick Murphy was one of those people, until he began to renovate his parents' home in Winthrop and found glimpses to the past hiding in the ceiling.

Some of the items Murphy found included door hinges, a comb and personal items such as letters and a dance card.

"I started pulling the ceiling down and I noticed newspaper clippings coming down with it," said Murphy.

One of the items, a dance card, was written out when Chester Arthur was president of the United States.

"1884, this was held by somebody who was actually going to attend a ball," said Murphy.

Another letter, decades apart from the dance card, was written in 1942 and details the interactions between a brother and a sister.

"That letter is from the World War II era and it’s between a brother and a sister," said Murphy. The sister's name is Edith and that's who it is addressed to. It’s talking about getting Edith out of WW2 and out of the navy and it talks about the impending surrender of the Germans and the Japanese."

Murphy says he doesn't know if these items belonged to people who once lived in his parents' home, but know these items all come with a story that he hopes will live on.

"For us, it’s this preserved piece of history, but for them it was their actual day to day life - it was just interesting to find it," said Murphy.

Murphy says that after he's done with renovating the room, his next project will be to frame up all those items and hang them on the walls of that room as a tribute.
