Rubia.

Good morning, Kelowna. Here’s your Top 5 for Dec. 28

Sun, fur babies and cease-fires — these are a few headlines you may want to acquaint yourself with.

  • Dec. 28, 2016 1:00 p.m.

Good morning. We hope you’re recovering well from the holidays. Here’s your morning five.

1.) Environment Canada says the sun is expected to make an appearance today and the high temperature will be -1 C.

2.) Are you in school? Thinking about higher learning? Textbook costs can be a drag, but there’s a program that can help. The BCcampus’s Open Textbook Project, an online repository of open educational resources, allows students and educators to use textbooks at no cost under a Creative Commons license. It currently has more than 170 books on a wide range of common post-secondary course subjects. Read more here.

3.) Sports! Michael Herringer stopped 30 shots Tuesday night, as the hometown Rockets downed the rival Kamloops Blazers 3-2 for their fourth straight WHL victory.

4.) For  today’s heartwarming pet story, we hear about Rubia, who slipped from her collar, got spooked and ran into the woods off the side of the highway then found her way back home again.

5.) In world news, Turkey’s state-run news agency says Turkey and Russia have reached an agreement on a plan for a cease-fire comprising the whole of Syria.

OK, that’s it. Now get to work.
