Cameron Rupp Adopts Dog Found Outside PSPCA

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Cameron Rupp made it official this week, adopting a beautiful 2-year-old dog.

Towards the ends of the Phillies season, a 2-year-old cane corso was found tied outside of the Pennsylvania SPCA headquarters in North Philadelphia. The owners never came to claim this dog, so the Phillies catcher adopted her. The Rupp family named her Lola.

Lola is now living with her new canine brother Chief.

Rupp hosted Ruppapalooza in July, raising over $30,000 for the PSPCA. Rupp was also chosen as the Phillies nominee for the Roberto Clemente award for his community service work.

The 29-year-old catcher played 88 games for the Phillies this season, hitting .217/.299/.417 with 14 homers and 34 RBI’s.

Family Held Captive By Taliban-Linked Group Released

Associated Press

ISLAMABAD (AP) – An American woman, her Canadian husband and their three young children have been released after years of being held captive by a network with ties to the Taliban, U.S. and Pakistani officials said Thursday.

U.S. officials say Pakistan secured the release of Caitlan Coleman of Stewartstown, Pennsylvania, and her husband, Canadian Joshua Boyle, who were abducted five years ago while traveling in Afghanistan and had been held by the Haqqani network in Pakistan.

Coleman was pregnant when she was captured. The couple had three children while in captivity, and all have been freed, U.S. officials say.

A U.S. national security official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing operation, commended Pakistan for their critical assistance in securing the family’s release – and described the cooperation as an important step in the right direction for U.S.-Pakistani relations.

The U.S. has long criticized Pakistan for failing to aggressively go after the Haqqanis, who have been behind many attacks against U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan.

In Pakistan, its military said in a statement that U.S. intelligence agencies had been tracking the hostages and discovered they had come into Pakistan on Oct. 11 through its tribal areas bordering Afghanistan.

“All hostages were recovered safe and sound and are being repatriated to the country of their origin,” the military said.

Three Pakistani military officials, all speaking on condition of anonymity as they weren’t allowed to speak to journalists, also confirmed the hostages’ identities.

The release, which came together rapidly Wednesday, comes nearly five years to the day since Coleman and Boyle lost touch with their families while traveling in a mountainous region near the Afghan capital, Kabul.

The couple set off in the summer 2012 for a journey that took them to Russia, the central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, and then to Afghanistan. Coleman’s parents last heard from their son-in-law on Oct. 8, 2012, from an internet cafe in what Boyle described as an “unsafe” part of Afghanistan.

In 2013, the couple appeared in two videos asking the U.S. government to free them from the Taliban.

Coleman’s parents, Jim and Lyn Coleman, told the online Circa News service in July 2016 that they received a letter from their daughter in November 2015, in which she wrote that she’d given birth to a second child in captivity. It’s unclear whether they knew she’d had a third.

“I pray to hear from you again, to hear how everybody is doing,” the letter said.

In that interview, Jim Coleman issued a plea to top Taliban commanders to be “kind and merciful” and let the couple go.

“As a man, father and now grandfather, I am asking you to show mercy and release my daughter, her husband, and our beautiful grandchildren,” Jim Coleman said. “Please grant them an opportunity to continue their lives with us, and bring peace to their families.”

The family was being held by the Haqqani network. U.S. officials call the group a terrorist organization and have targeted its leaders with drone strikes. But the group also operates like a criminal network. Unlike the Islamic State group, it does not typically execute Western hostages, preferring to ransom them for cash.

Trump has called on Pakistan to do more to tackle militant organizations that use its territory as a home base.

“We can no longer be silent about Pakistan’s safe havens for terrorist organizations, the Taliban and other groups that pose a threat to the region and beyond,” Trump said in a recent speech announcing his Afghanistan policy. He issued a stark warning: “We have been paying Pakistan billions and billions of dollars at the same time they are housing the very terrorists that we are fighting. But that will have to change, and that will change immediately.”

Damp and Dreary Thursday, Temperatures On The Rise Into The Weekend

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –– Most of the rain for Thursday happening before the daylight hours of the morning, but a few lingering areas of scattered showers are likely as we move throughout the afternoon.

In general, we should not see much, if any, accumulating rain in the afternoon today. Even though the rain showers are going to be very spotty and light this afternoon, there will still be strong onshore flow from an area of high pressure that is centered up in New England. Wind gusts this afternoon are likely to reach as high as 20MPH at times, meaning that some extra height could be added to the waves, especially around high tide.

Due to this chance a Coastal flood Advisory has been issued and will go into effect at Noon today. High tide along the New Jersey ocean coastline happens between 1:30-2:30PM. When you add in the onshore flow, that means that an extra 1-2 feet of water could be pulsed in with high tide. Areas that are prone to coastal flooding or tidal flooding should be avoided this afternoon, especially during the high tide hours.
After the rain today we continue to see a couple spotty shower chances through Friday and even possible part of Saturday, but more sunshine is likely as we move into the coming weekend.  Temperatures are also on the rise into the weekend as well, thanks to a weak upper level ridge that will work into the region ahead of a cold front that works through on Sunday night. Highs on Saturday are likely back into the 70s with 80s in the forecast for Sunday. On the backside of the cold front though we will get a sustained stretch of cooler and more Fall-like weather with temperatures in the 60s, low humidity, and sunny skies.

Last for anyone curious about the Birds game tonight, it looks as though it should be a pretty typical Carolina night. A little warm and slightly humid with temperatures at kickoff around 77. An isolated shot for  a thunder shower is out there for the game too but it should not be a washout of the night for Thursday Night Football on CBS 3.
