Ice cream citations, ducklings delivered and money for mom: 'It's All Good (News!)'

Kids wearing helmets get ticketed, a Northeast Ohio fire department rescues ducklings and more in this week's dose of good news.

CLEVELAND — Sometimes, about half way through the week, you just need a little mood boost. Well, 'It's All Good (News!)' is here for you, with a big helping of nothing but happy, uplifting stories.

In this episode, we'll take you to Amherst Township, where sheriff's deputies there are pulling over kids they pass on the streets who are riding their bikes and wearing helmets. So what's the good news in that, you may ask? They're ticketing them because they're wearing their helmets! And we have the proof in pictures.

Then, we take you to Streetsboro, where some heroic actions from the city's fire department went viral this past week. They came together to save several ducklings that had fallen down through a sewer grate, and reunited them with their mama.

Next, the story of siblings who pooled their resources and paid off their mom's mortgage! See how it impacted the rest of her life, too.

You can watch this week's episode of 'It's All Good (News!) With Stephanie Haney' in the player below.

Then, we head to Texas, where a teacher who's had a huge impact on his students is up for a top music honor. Derrick Walker, a band and fine arts director, is actually up for a Grammy Award. Watch this week's episode to see what it's for, and what his students have to say about it.

You'll also get to see how a mama bear and her babies beat the heat -- and shocked a lot of people in the process -- as they splashed around at a beach in Lake Tahoe.

Finally, a stowaway seal hitched a ride on a boat that was participating in a race. See how the crew dealt with it.
