The CDC Director says COVID-19 is likely to become an endemic disease in the U.S. and around the world. Doctor Rochelle Walensky said 99-percent of the coronavius cases in the country are the Delta variant, but they are keeping a close eye on the Omicron [[ AHM-ih-cron ]] variant as well. Walensky noted the risks with COVID are still much more extreme if a person is unvaccinated.        A Michigan sheriff says he did not know charges were going to be filed against the parents of the school shooting suspect. Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said if they knew "there was a high likelihood of charges" they would've kept a better eye on James and Jennifer Crumbley. Bouchard said much of his department's resources were being used to investigate the shooting and he would have pulled officers from the investigation to run surveillance if they knew "felonious charges" were forthcoming.        The U.S. Government has a big stash of bitcoins, and now its worth a lot more than when it was first obtained. NBC News reports that in November of 2020, thousands of the cryptocurrency was confiscated from a dark web forum selling illegal products. An IRS spokesperson told the outlet the bitcoins will be auctioned off by the government.        Today marks the fifth day of Ghislaine [[ GHEE-lane ]] Maxwell's trial after being accused of being Jeffrey Epstein's madam. Her defense attorney attempted to discredit Epstein's former house manager, who provided testimony saying he'd seen underage girls at the property. The house manager testified he helped set up for and clean up after Epstein's notorious massages.       The prosecution is resting its case in the Jussie Smollett trial. Two brothers testified in court this week that the former "Empire" actor told them to stage a phony hate crime against him while pretending to be Trump supporters, in a bid to get media attention. After three days of testimony, the prosecution rested its case last night. Smollett, who is Black and gay, claims he was attacked in Chicago in January of 2019 by two men yelling racist and anti-gay remarks.        Authorities say a Maryland house caught fire in November due to a failed attempt to smoke out a snake infestation. An investigation discovered that the home in Poolesvile went up in flames when coals used to get rid of the snakes came too close to combustibles. The fire ended up causing over one-million-dollars in damage, while no one was hurt in the blaze.
