  • When was the last time you did something kind for someone else?
    This week we look at asset number 26, the asset of caring. This asset is achieved when young people place a high value on helping others.  
    Back in the day, I worked at a radio station in Idaho. One holiday season some young people called the station and asked if I would call a certain phone number and tell them to look on the porch. Presumably, there was a surprise waiting for the person on the other end of the phone line.

    Each resident was given a boutonniere or corsage.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlie Sheen was fired Monday from "Two and a Half Men" by Warner Bros. Television following the hard-living actor's bouts of wild partying, repeated hospitalizations and a bitter media campaign against his studio bosses.

    The action was taken after "careful consideration" and was effective immediately, the studio said in a statement. No decision has been made on the show's future without its star, Warner spokesman Paul McGuire said.
