Water park to open for summer season


Cedar Point Shores Waterpark, the 18-acre water park at Cedar Point amusement park, opens for the summer Saturday. There will be giveaways and live entertainment all weekend, and guests can watch the construction of a massive sand castle sculpture.

For a more relaxed experience, guests can take a ride on the Cedar Creek lazy river or float in the waves of the 500,000-gallon Breakwater Bay wave pool.

Former reality star guilty in killing


A former reality TV star has pleaded guilty to killing a U.S. Coast Guard technician in a drunken wrong-way collision on a Virginia highway.

Melissa Hancock, 25, pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated DUI manslaughter in the November 2017 death of 29-year-old Petty Officer 2nd Class Daniel Dill.

In March, Hancock entered pleas of no contest to driving the wrong way and failing to obey a highway sign. Those misdemeanors don’t carry jail time, but the felony manslaughter charge carries a one-year minimum jail sentence.

At the time of the crash, Dill was driving to pick up his wife and friends.

Hancock appeared on Lifetime’s “Little Women: Atlanta,” a reality show about women of short stature.

Sentencing is set for Oct. 10.
