Cicely Tyson Gave Fashion Six Decades of Glamour

It’s hard to understate Cicely Tyson’s influence on fashion. Yesterday the cinema legend’s death at the age of 96 sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry, leading several generations of talent to pay their respects. Michelle Obama, Zendaya, Yara Shahidi, Mariah Carey, Oprah, and Tyler Perry were just a few of the luminaries who celebrated Tyson’s legacy. As the first Black woman to play the leading role in a television drama and receive an honorary Oscar, she opened countless doors for Hollywood peers, but her presence loomed as large within the world of style.

Los Angeles police officers on Friday shot a man after he allegedly threatened his estranged wife and her family and then brandished a handgun when confronted by police.

The man, whom authorities did not identify, suffered at least one gunshot wound. He was being treated at a local hospital and is in serious but stable condition, police said. No one else was injured.

Winooski organizations team up to serve neighbors in need

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) – Two Winooski organizations are teaming up to make sure underserved communities have what they need during the pandemic.

Winooski Mutual Aid and Iceberg Consulting have started “P.U.M.A.” It stands for “Pop-up Mutual Aid.”

Once a week, volunteers will pack up a carload of winter clothes, masks, hygiene products and food, and drop them off in different neighborhoods.

The organizers say the goal is to meet people where they are and eliminate barriers that may prevent people from getting to other donation drives in the area.

Mellisa Cain says some of those barriers include child care, language and transportation.
