Couple facing charges after spending most of $120,000 that bank mistakenly puts in their account

Imagine waking up one day to find an extra $120,000 in your bank account. You did not make $120,000 or win $120,000, but there it is, $120,000, just sitting there. Cool! What would you do with all that cash? Pay off the mountain of student loans you'd otherwise be stuck with till you die? Buy a house? Buy a car? Maybe you should call the bank and find out what's going on? Yeah. Yeah, you definitely should call the bank. Robert and Tiffany Williams of Montoursville, Pennsylvania, did not call the bank, police say. — The Washington Post

Manager: Trump family building ‘dynasty’ for decades to come

President Donald Trump’s campaign manager predicted Saturday that the president and his family will become “a dynasty that will last for decades,” transforming the Republican Party while hewing to conservative values. Speaking to a convention of Republican Party delegates in Indian Wells, California, Brad Parscale also said the campaign’s goal is to build a national army of 2 million trained volunteers, far beyond the president’s 2016 organization, that in California could help the GOP retake a string of U.S. House seats captured by Democrats last year. “The Trumps will be a dynasty that will last for decades, propelling the Republican Party into a new party,” he said. “One that will adapt to changing cultures. One must continue to adapt while keeping the conservative values that we believe in.” — The Associated Press

Hiker climbing Yosemite's iconic Half Dome dies in 500 foot fall

An Arizona hiker fell to her death while ascending the iconic granite peaks of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park on Thursday, the National Park Service reports. Danielle Burnett, 29, of Lake Havasu City, was scaling the steepest part of the popular trail when she fell more than 500 feet down steep and rocky terrain. Burnett was dead when park rangers arrived on scene, according to park officials. It's unclear what caused the fall. The incident remains under investigation. Half Dome rises nearly 5,000 feet above California's Yosemite Valley and is one of the park's signature sights. Each summer, visitors vie for one of 300 spots released in a daily lottery to complete the 14-mile trek to the top of the dome and back. — USA Today
