A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Several Sylvania businesses are joining forces to help end hunger in the area, and they're using Facebook to do it.
Seven business owners want to market their businesses, but in a way that will help others in the process.
"It amazes me how the little things we take for granted – there's always food in our cupboards, or we can go into the gas station and get whatever, anytime we want," said Scott France, of France Law Group. "Just the fact that there's people in our community that don't have breakfast or go to school hungry, that's sad."

All food collected from now until May 12 will benefit the Seagate Food Bank of Northwest Ohio.
