The government shutdown continues to take its toll on Americans. Yesterday, Yogi Bear was ordered to leave Jellystone Park.
KRIS AND BRUCE JENNER may have separated, but you'll be seeing them together quite a bit as the separation will be a big story line on Keeping Up with the Kardashians' 9th season. That was pretty much a no-brainier as TV ratings mean money and that's a top priority for the family. While it was reported that Bruce initiated the split, Kris seems to be the happier of the two if you measure it by rings. Bruce was still wearing his yesterday, while Kris' finger was naked. Kris may already be moving on as she was spotted having dinner with Jason Trawick, Britney Spears' ex manager/boyfriend. Kris claims that she and Bruce still love each other, get along great, work together, talk on the phone 12 times a day, and remain "best friends." If you're wondering why they separated, Kris says, "We're just happier living apart." Hopefully for Kris that's the truth because if there is a divorce, Bruce stands to walk away with a bundle as they don't have a pre-nup.

Starbucks is giving away free coffee through tomorrow, but there's a catch. They'll give you a free tall brewed coffee if you buy another person a beverage. Starbucks says the offer is a way to help fellow citizens "support and connect with one another, even as we wait for our elected officials to do the same for our country." It's part of an effort to show Congress that Americans can come together and they should be able to, too.
The New York Yankees and manager Joe Girardi have agreed to a new four-year deal. The Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals were both said to be interested in Girardi.
Back in March, Salem, New Hampshire's Jacquelyn Plum was charged with DUI after she was involved in a traffic accident. Hours after being released on bail, she was riding with a friend when a policeman noticed her open container and she was again arrested. Flash forward to late August when police found Plum passed out behind the wheel of her yellow convertible and again charged her with DUI. This time, Plum had her driver's license suspended. About a month later, Plum waved to a Salem police officer as she drove by in her yellow convertible. That cop was her first arresting officer, who knew her license had been suspended, and Plum was arrested again and at last report, instead of a wheel, she was behind bars.
