A Grammy nod for an Ohio teacher, a message for Baker Mayfield, and Christmas trees for goats: It's All Good News

Take a break from the busy-ness of the new year and smile with us!

CLEVELAND โ€” Doesn't the beginning of 2022 already feel like it's been a year in itself? It's only the second full week of the year! So if you're feeling a bit stressed, we encourage you to join us for a quick happy break! 

Today, we're sharing the encouraging, and incredibly adorable note one Lorain third grader wrote to Baker Mayfield! We know Baker had some rough last games, and when Brooklyn Schue got word people were criticizing him, she stepped in.

"I hope that people will stop being mean to him," she told us.

@bakermayfield, our little girl wanted to send some kind words your way. Please be on the lookout for her letter to arrive. ๐ŸคŽ๐Ÿงก#wesupportyou #bakerbakertouchdownmaker #ClevelandBrowns

Check out what else Brooklyn shared from her note with us, and who shared the note online!

Speaking of letters- another Ohio girl just got her own piece of mail, from none other than the queen of England!

Jalayne Sutherland, from Hamilton, OH dressed as the queen for Halloween, complete with two corgis! So she and her mom sent a letter to the queen and a photo, showing her royal costume. Check out what the queen thought of it!

"I'd like to thank the Academy- and my kids" is probably what Katie Silcott of our next story would say- should she win the Grammy she's nominated for! The Columbus-area middle school teacher was nominated by her students, who cannot say enough good things about her.

Silcott is one of 10 up for the Music Educator Award- which recognizes teachers who "have made a significant and lasting contribution to the music education field." You have to hear how her students describe her, and what happens if Silcott wins!

And finally- leftover Christmas trees don't seem to have much use, right? Tell that to goats! Turns out, the tree pines are rich in antioxidants and nutrients, and goats eat them up! An animal sanctuary in Rhode Island takes the trees to feed their goats, and in return uses the goats for a great cause. Its a baaaa-utiful thing.

We want you to share your good news with us, so that we can share it with the world! It can be something major -- like being reunited with a family member you haven't seen in a long time, or something small, like a random act of kindness. Whatever it is, we want to hear it.
