— A family in an Orange County neighborhood had an unexpected visitor this week.
When a hungry black bear showed up at their home, the family decided to do a photo shoot with it. Now the bear is becoming a bit of an internet celebrity.
Dustin Radney, who was the photographer in the eventful shoot, said the bear was not the neighborhood guest he was expecting, but he didn’t seem to mind.
"Just a bear hanging out in the neighborhood - a 400 pound bear," Radney said while showing video of the bear toppling over a trash can.
Radney’s sense of humor and commentary while reacting to the bear’s visit seems to be what got people talking online.
“This is what's wrong with nature today—They don't eat healthy,” Radney said jokingly while showing video of the bear eating leftovers from the trash can. “That's why they're so fat. They're obese.”
Radney also Photoshopped his son onto the bear and even created a possible Christmas card with one of his neighbors.
“It was really entertaining. He was just chilling and eating some trash, and after he was done eating the trash, he took about an hour nap,” Radney said.
In addition to the Orange County deputies who were monitoring the bear’s behavior, Radney said his family and neighbors stayed about 50 yards away from it.

DAYTON — It’s any parents, and kids, worst nightmare. Strangers, trying to bust down the front door of a dayton home, just minutes after parents left for work, and their 11-year-old kids home alone.
Dayton police have opened an investigation. A security camera on a neighbor’s house on holly avenue in dayton captured the faces of two men, wearing lanyards, going door to door. They avoided homes with visible security cameras.
They moved on to the house where two kids were home alone. They began banging on the front door for approximately ten minutes, according to a Dayton Police report. Then the men began thrusting their shoulders against the door.
"When you do that to our front door, our whole house shakes, so our kids were pretty upset,” said Christina Baine, the children’s mother.
Her two kids never approached or opened the door, just as they were taught.
“After a few times of doing that, he did retreat and leave," added Baine.
Surveillance video is the best lead police have to go on right now. We’ve blurred their faces because they have not been charged with a crime. When we showed the video to neighbors along Holly Avenue, the remembered the men walking the sidewalks and thought they looked suspicious.
Now the Baine family has installed its own security cameras.

NEW LEBANON — UPDATE @ 1:55 p.m.
A male sophomore at Dixie High School is facing charges after posting concerning statements on social media directed towards staff and students at the school, according to New Lebanon police Capt. Jim Chambers.
School administrators contacted police around 9:30 a.m. Thursday after students alerted teachers of the messages posted to social media, Chambers said. The suspect was arrested and has been booked into the Montgomery County Juvenile Justice Center on a charge of inducing panic.
“With the events in Florida, this obviously concerns our agency,” Chambers said. “We owe it to the public to keep them safe.”
“We’re going to work with folks at the juvenile justice center and the prosecutor’s office to find a resolution to this matter, hopefully one that fixes the problem,” Chambers said.
A Dixie High School sophomore was taken into custody Thursday after administrators said the student posted concerning messages on social media regarding a school shooting.
New Lebanon Local Schools Superintendent Greg Williams said other students made administrators aware of the social media post around 9:30 a.m., shortly after the post was made.
According to Williams, police were called to the school and the student was removed from the building by New Lebanon Police. We’ve contacted police to see if the student was ultimately arrested and if the student will be facing any charges.
Williams added that the social media post was not a specific threat of a shooting at Dixie, but the message warranted action by the school.
