Deputies began searching for Lipan resident Christopher Allen Whiteley on Thursday after he was last seen in the early hours of the day before. In a wooded area close to Whiteley’s last known location, investigators discovered a mortally wounded body. The body was identified as Whiteley.

The preliminary results from an autopsy on the body determined that Whiteley died from a wild animal attack. It is believed to be a mountain lion. The sheriff’s office has enlisted the help of a trapper from the U.S. Department of Agriculture who specializes in tracking and removing mountain lions to assist in the search for the animal.

Residents are urged to be mindful of their surroundings and to keep young children and animals inside at night.

The stock market was set to fall this morning, with Dow futures indicating over 100 points in losses. Monday morning’s dip follows Friday’s gains– advances made even after a November jobs report that reflected less-than-expected results.

Investors actually saw the disappointing data as a good thing because it could motivate lawmakers to move more quickly on fiscal stimulus.

“The need for strong, urgent emergency relief is more important than ever,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday.

“At this point, the market is anticipating at least several hundred billion dollars of incremental stimulus in 2020,” Vital Knowledge Founder Adam Crisafulli said.

Due to the emotional toll of the pandemic, many businesses are making it a point to help improve the mental health of their employees. This has resulted in some organizations getting creative with their support – even offering new digital options.

Some businesses are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) such as chatbots to help their employees. One pro to using chatbots for when employees just need to talk or get something off their chest is that AI bots are non-judgmental and non-biased. This fact alone may help more people open up to using these types of digital services.

Another digital tool businesses are providing their employees for improving mental health are apps. Meditation, relaxing, and calming apps are especially popular for helping reduce stress and anxiety, while fitness apps are used to help improve overall health, which is proven to improve mental health as well. How else are organizations helping their employees with their mental health? Is digital support the future of mental health care?
