Man Plays 125 Holes Of Golf To Build Up Library

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a 66-year old retired teacher tees his way into local library history. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Dale Reich golfed to raise money to fill up his local library which was really hurting for books.

But the man didn't play one round, he hit 125 holes, non-stop, in a single day.

Reich said, "There’s a very underfunded library but it’s very important to the Adams-Friendship communities, and there’s a lot of reading going on around here, which as a teacher, it really makes me happy to see."

The man loves golf, but he loves helping his community even more.

Man Fights to Get His Beloved Pet Bear Back

An Arkansas man is devastated after state officials came and took the baby bear he's raised for the last 6 months. He says he loves the bear as if it were his child, and now he's fighting to get her back, CNN's Michaela Pereira reports.

To Robert Baysinger, Savannah is more than just a bear cub, she is family.

"She'll jump up in my arms. She'll lay down in my lap and take her a nap," he says.

Baysinger first found Savannah 6 months ago when he rescued her from the middle of a controlled fire.

The 2 have been inseparable ever since, even climbing trees and picking blackberries together. But all of that changed when he came home on Monday and found a ticket taped to his front door, and Savannah gone.

The ticket was from Arkansas Game and Fish, who, along with law enforcement, took her away, citing it illegal to have a pet bear.

According to Arkansas Game and Fish, "We all love bears. We all love wildlife. They're cute and they're cuddly but it's called wildlife for a reason."

Baysinger planned to release Savannah back into the wild once she got older. He says he tried before, but she kept coming back. Now he is not giving up without a fight.

Officials say the bear went to a nearby rehab facility, but they refused to tell Baysinger exactly where. Arkansas Game and Fish says it is up to the rehab center to decide whether Baysinger can get some sort of visitation right to see Savannah, but consider it very unlikely.

Sen. Tammy Baldwin: "Great Chance" Diplomacy Will Work In Syria

Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) tells “New Day” Anchor Kate Bolduan that there is a “great chance” diplomacy will work in Syria and that she would not support unilateral military action if diplomacy fails. She also says President Putin’s open letter in the 'New York Times' is “really a lot of bluster.”

“I think we do have good odds of this being successful," Senator Baldwin says.  "It may not be pretty in getting there, but I think that we do have a great chance because the whole world, right now, is invested in trying to secure and destroy Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles.”

When Bolduan asks her if she would support military intervention if diplomacy doesn't work, Senator Baldwin replies:

“I cannot support unilateral military action in Syria’s war. But I believe that we have to have a global response. And I don’t think that no response is the answer. I think that we have to strengthen our global institutions.”
