BROOKFIELD, WI —Family of three-year-old girl Charlie Rose say she's slowly recovering after a life-threatening abuse case in early February. Authorities say she was brought via flight for life to Children's Hospital on Feb. 8. Police say Rose suffered life-threatening injuries at the hands of a 25-year-old man who was once her caregiver. "She is one tough cookie and even though Charlie is stable now, the bills and therapy will continue as she is not in the clear yet. It will be a long road to recovery, but, one day at a time. We are thankful she is alive and can not wait for her to be back to her spunky self," family wrote on Charlie's Go Fund Me page.

Auctioned for bid
The auction for Fox‘s regional sports networks is warming up thanks to Ice Cube. The vocalist-turned-actor’s basketball league, Big3, has added two new big-money players to its bid for 21 of the 22 Fox channels, The Post has learned exclusively. The 3-on-3 basketball league, which the ex-N.W.A rapper co-founded with entertainment veteran Jeff Kwatinetz in 2017, is teaming up with investment bank Macquarie Group and entrepreneur Carolyn Rafaelian, according to people familiar with the matter. Those two, plus previously announced investor Centerbridge Partners, are backing Big3 for at least $1 billion apiece, sources said.

The YES Network, which airs Yankees and Brooklyn Nets games, is expected to be sold separately to the Bronx Bombers. Behind Big3’s bid are plans to … [Read more...] about Ice Cube brings backup for bid on Fox’s local sports networks
