Hunter Harrison, the president and CEO of railroad giant CSX, died Saturday in Florida. He was 73.

>> Read more trending news

CSX confirmed Harrison’s death in a statement, saying it was caused by “unexpectedly severe complications” from a recent illness. His death comes only a couple of days after the company announced he was taking an unplanned medical leave of absence.

“Hunter was a larger-than-life figure who brought his remarkable passion, experience and energy in railroading to CSX,” the company said in a statement.

Harrison was hired by Florida-based CSX in March under shareholder pressure. But recently there had been concerns about his health. The Wall Street Journal reported in May that Harrison often worked from his Wellington home and occasionally required portable oxygen.

Harrison, a member of the Wellington horse set, lived in a 9,200-square-foot mansion at Palm Beach Polo & Country Club, according to property records. He paid $4 million for the property in 2008.

The property now is held in the name of Harrison’s wife, Jeannie Harrison. They have a homestead exemption.

And the Harrison family’s Double H Farm owns a 22-acre property in Wellington.

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Harrison was a long-time railroad executive who made his career turning around railroads.

“With the passing of Hunter Harrison, CSX has suffered a major loss. Notwithstanding that loss, the Board is confident that Jim Foote, as acting Chief Executive Officer, and the rest of the CSX team will capitalize on the changes that Hunter has made,” Edward J. Kelly III, Chairman of the CSX Board of Directors, said.

Lemieux's 5 goals in 5 ways named NHL's greatest moment

The Pittsburgh Penguins can add another piece of history to their trophy case. 

>> Read more trending news

Team co-owner and former star forward Mario Lemieux won an NHL award Saturday for having the greatest moment in the history of the league. 

Lemieux’s five goals in five different ways against the New Jersey Devils in 1988 beat out Bobby Orr’s game-winning goal to win the 1970 Stanley Cup for the Boston Bruins. 

The contest was voted on by fans to commemorate the NHL’s first 100 years. Fans voted on the bracket-style format to determine which moment was the greatest. 

On Dec. 31, 1988, Lemieux scored an even-strength goal, a power-play goal, a short-handed goal, a penalty shot goal and an empty net goal. It was the only time in NHL history that a player had scored in five different ways.

‘SNL’ crew trims Christmas tree with Trump’s ‘haters and losers’

“War is over, if you want it,” John Lennon sang in “Happy Christmas.”

>> Read more trending news

Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump character had a new twist to an old song.

“The war on Christmas is over,” Baldwin’s character said to open “Saturday Night Live” on NBC. “It will soon be replaced by the war with North Korea.”

The crew of SNL continued its biting sarcasm of the president, as Baldwin stood with Cecily Strong, who played Melania Trump. 

“It's Christmas time. Soon white Santa will be coming from house to house, taking presents from Muslims and illegals and giving them to American children,” Baldwin said.

He then said he was going to decorate his “tree of shame,” with ornaments that depicted this year’s “haters and losers.”

White House staffers were invited to trim the tree with ornaments, and Kate McKinnon kicked things off as Kellyanne Conway, who chose former FBI Director James Comey.

“Thank you Kellyanne,” Baldwin said. “What would you like to have for Christmas.”

“I want out,” she said.

Aidy Bryant's, playing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was next. She hung two ornaments on the tree. One had the face of former Press Secretary Sean Spicer and of former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci. She chose them because they were “the mangled corpses” she had to step over to get her job.

Scarlett Johansson, playing Ivanka Trump, was asked by Baldwin about the whereabouts of her husband, Jared Kushner.

“He's packing a go bag before the FBI arrives,” she said.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for humor. 

Here’s the entire sketch:

WWE's Vince McMahon to give football another shot, may bring back XFL

Vince McMahon, owner and creative head of World Wrestling Entertainment, is preparing a new professional football league.

>> Read more trending news

McMahon started the XFL in 2001, splitting ownership with NBC. The league debuted to massive ratings and hype, with commercials promising a harder hitting brand of football and sexier cheerleaders. But the quality of play suffered greatly from the lack of preparation time for players, as well as the lack of big-name players from the NFL or college, and led to the league lasting only one season.

The story was first told by writer Brad Shepard on Twitter. Wrestling writer David Bixenspan later contacted WWE, which confirmed McMahon has established a new corporation called Alpha Entertainment. 

Bixenspan also reported McMahon had reacquired trademarks for the XFL shortly after ESPN aired a documentary on the league earlier in 2017. Whether McMahon’s league would be called the XFL is unknown.

The Washington Post wrote McMahon’s interest in a return to football was fueled by his participation in the ESPN documentary. Despite the league costing NBC and WWE $35 million in 2001, McMahon tried to find another channel for the league after NBC canceled it and only shut the league down after he was unable to find a television deal.

The XFL branded itself as a harder hitting and sexier version of pro football, and the NFL had become less physical. The marketing campaign behind the league’s debut was one of the most hyped in history and included professional wrestlers from the WWE. 

The timing of McMahon opening a new league could be due to the NFL’s ratings struggles and complaints about the league’s style of play after new rules have restricted how players tackle. National Anthem protests by players in the NFL have been controversial. Media outlets have differed on whether the protests have affected ratings. 

Players and owners were also targeted by President Donald Trump while he was campaigning during the Alabama Senate race. Vince McMahon’s wife Linda, a former WWE president, is a member of President Trump’s cabinet and head of the Small Business Administration.

Cruise ship with more than 300 sick passengers returns to Florida port

A Royal Caribbean cruise ship returned to Port Everglades today after more than 300 people became ill with a stomach virus.

>> Read more trending news

Cruise officials said there were 332 cases of the gastrointestinal illness, just under 6 percent of the more than 5,000 guests and crew aboard the Independence of the Seas, according to a CNN report.

The cruise left South Florida on Monday, and the illness began to spread by Wednesday, WSVN in Miami reported. Passengers were given over-the-counter medication, and staff quickly cleaned and disinfected the entire ship, a Royal Caribbean spokesperson said.

But passengers reported a not-so-memorable cruise.

"Imagine being in a waiting room and sitting next to five or six people all throwing up at the same time," passenger Cheryl Roberts told WSVN.

Roberts said all of the sick passengers she spoke to had lunch on the ship.

"We all didn’t eat off of the ship, and now we’re all either throwing up or we have horrible diarrhea," she said.

A Royal Caribbean statement said the cruise line is "taking steps like intensive sanitary procedures to minimize the risk of any further issues."

UPS driver fired after stealing iPhone he delivered, police say

A Florida man lost his job with UPS and faces grand theft charges after a homeowner's surveillance video caught him stealing an iPhone he had delivered hours earlier, police say. 

>> Read more trending news

Jason Christopher Mohn, 47, was caught Tuesday taking the package from a woman's porch, stuffing it under his shirt and fleeing hours after it was initially delivered, according to WFTS.

A video from two hours prior to the theft showed Mohn, a UPS contractor, delivering the iPhone X to the St. Pete Beach address.

Jovita Acute-Parker said she installed the two cameras at her front door to feel safer. She said she couldn't believe it when the cameras caught the theft. The suspect turned toward the camera as he left. 

If that wasn't enough to seal the case for police, the stolen iPhone was later found by Mohn's supervisor among his personal belongings at work, a police report says. He was fired immediately and arrested Wednesday.

"Stupidest thief ever," Acute-Parker told WFTS with a laugh after getting her $1,000 iPhone back. 

According to Pinellas County Sheriff's Office records, Mohn was released Friday on a $2,000 bond.
