About 100 California National Guard troops will dig through the ashes of the town of Paradise today, searching for fire victims. The Guard is sending a hundred military police officers trained to identify human remains.  Authorities are afraid the death toll in Northern California's Camp Fire will go a lot higher.  The discovery of six bodies yesterday pushed the toll to 48 but more than 100 people are missing.  

CNN is suing President Trump and several top White House officials.  The network is demanding that White House correspondent Jim Acosta's media credential be restored immediately.  The White House suspended Acosta's credential last week and accused him of behaving inappropriately in a news conference.  The President became annoyed about Acosta's persistent questioning on illegal immigration.  He called the veteran reporter a rude, horrible person.  CNN claims Acosta's First Amendment rights were violated.   

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock is taking a look at increasing the paychecks of the lowest-earning city employees.  He's directing finance officials to explore a possible 15-dollar-an-hour minimum wage for those serving Denver.  Hancock says the city's economy is among the strongest in the country, but wages haven't kept up with the cost of living.  Findings and recommendations on a phased-in wage hike will be presented to the mayor early next year.
